Flunstellas are flocks, clusters and constellations of ideas, emotions and memories, that appear in social spaces.
They have been reported to move around social spaces, interacting with people, each other and their environment, seemingly with a life of their own. Some behave under our control, with others seemingly acting for themselves. No one knows exactly what they are or what causes them.
We 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. It is possible that this phenomenon is triggered when people are thinking about intense personal dramas.
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 their own very basic needs and drives, but haven’t demonstrated the kind of intelligence found in more complex life forms. They appear to have differing degrees of independence from the person thinking and feeling them, some following that persons wishes; others acting independently.
They have the ability to float, to move around in a variety of ways, change states, such as size colour, opacity and contents. Some seem to have the ability to communicate and affect the behaviour of other thoughts and feelings. Although not intelligent in themselves, they are social. When interacting in groups, more complex behaviors have been observed.
