Our thoughts are simple life forms. When they appear in social spaces we call them Flunstellas. They are flocks, clusters and constellations, of ideas, emotions and memories. Flunstellas are all around us.
They have been reported to appear in social spaces, interacting with people, each other and their environment, seemingly with a life of their own. Some of these thoughts have been seen behaving under the control of people, with others seemingly acting for themselves. After much investigation, exactly what they are or what causes them is still uncertain.
This site is used to share the findings of our investigations to inspire people to get involved and explore this phenomenon themselves. We deliver educational activities to better inform the public of the benefits that understanding Flunstellas can give us.
Following interviews with a series of reliable witnesses, we have compiled the following facts.
Where and When?
Witnesses describe seeing Flunstellas floating in social spaces, mostly in spaces that strangers share, such as waiting rooms, shops, cafes and libraries. It has been noted that the content of Flunstellas often describe heightened or mixed emotion.
These thought visualisations take on a wide range of different appearances, most people describe them as being organic looking, with some taking on opaque and abstract shapes and other appearing as translucent forms containing images and language.
It seems that they have limited ability to sense and understand what is happening around them in their environment, among the people, thoughts and emotions inhabiting it. They each appear to have agency, with their own very basic needs and drives, but haven’t demonstrated the kind of intelligence or personality found in more complex life forms. They appear to have differing degrees of independence from the person thinking and feeling them, some following the wishes of humans; others acting independently.
They have the ability to float, to move around in a variety of ways, changing states, such as size, colour, opacity and contents. Some thoughts seem to have the ability to communicate and affect the behaviour of others. Though not intelligent in themselves, they are social. When interacting in groups, more complex behaviors have been observed.
