[COLOR=orange]That is because of the way peripheral vision works. The rod cells of the outer retina are much more sensitive to light than are the cone cells of the central retina.[/COLOR] [COLOR=orange][/COLOR] [COLOR=orange][/COLOR] [COLOR=orange]This is why a dim star will seem to entirely disappear when you look directly at it, but the star will emerge again in your peripheral vision when you focus on a spot just to the side of the star.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=orange]Definition of Domoviye:[/COLOR]

Spoiler: Show
[COLOR=orange][COLOR=orange]Domovoj (Russian: домово́й) literally translates into English as “He of the house.” (Plural: Domoviye) In Slavic folklore, they are the guardian spirit of the house. As such, they are there to guard and protect the house, property, and inhabitants. They also maintain peace and order, and will reward a well-maintained household. To that order, they are said to assist in the daily household chores, as well as the fieldwork. Some families will even treat their Domovoj as a member of their family, albeit an unseen one, and will leave them gifts like milk and biscuits in the kitchen after sunset.[/COLOR][/COLOR][COLOR=orange] [COLOR=orange]All Domoviye are masculine. Although they are typically unseen, they will choose to reveal themselves on occasion. By nature, they are normally short, rarely exceeding a full metre in height. In addition, they are also covered with fur, and usually possess a grey or white beard.[/COLOR] [COLOR=orange]Never the intruders, Domoviye must be purposefully invited in. If ever you do choose to summon a Domovoj into your home, you must make a place for his own where he can rest and sleep. This must be located as close to the centre of your house as is possible. In addition, you must also leave for him food, beverages, and snacks, all of which need to be covered with a white cloth. Next, you must only keep animals the domovoj likes; as he will torment the ones he does not. Lastly, you should be wary of the guests you allow into your home, as the domovoj may not get along well with them either. More often than not, however, you and your family will live in peaceful harmony with your Domovoj, and no troubles will develop.[/COLOR] [COLOR=orange]Because of their helpful nature, Domoviye are to be complemented and respected. They will never do harm or commit evil unless angered by a family’s poor upkeep or neglect of the household, or by a family’s profane language. Should this occur, they will attempt to get the family’s attention by clattering objects, breaking dishes, leaving muddy footprints, causing the walls to creak, hammering on pots, and moaning. If the situation is ignored, the Domovoj’s actions may intensify to the point of behaving very much like a poltergeist. In extreme cases, they might even threaten the family by vocally yelling them while holding them down in their beds. If the family is successful in ascertaining the reason of this displeasure, they can remedy the situation and restore the household to normal.[/COLOR] [COLOR=orange]As Domoviye are guardians of the house, they will not travel with their family, nor will they move to the new home, should the family move. Instead, they will remain at the home, to guard and protect it and the next family who moves into the home. Of course, you can make an offering to your Domovoj, and specifically invite it to move with you into your new house.[/COLOR] [/COLOR]

[COLOR=orange] Has anyone here ever had any experiences (good or bad) with Domoviye?[/COLOR]

Personally, I had never heard something like that and it's plain awesome.

Whereas in Chile, ussually people come up with "It's okay, he guards the house" when it comes to... Let's say, spirits that wander around the house, but ussually in this case, they refer to a former owner who's soul keeps walking about in that said house.

[COLOR=orange]Actually, a part of the Domoviye folklore is that they indeed do at times present themselves as former, or even current, owners of the house. There have been many reports of the neighbours seeing the owner of the home working outside the house at night, when in fact, the owner is not even at home at all.[/COLOR]

The Roman equal is known as "Lares." As you already know well, the official language of Chile is Spanish, which is a descendant of Latin. Given that, what your family was talking about was most likely a Lar.

Interesting.

Basically all those things are energy, and AFAIK all energy can take any kind of shape. Given that, those entieties, could take the shape of the past owner... Don't know if I make sense.

I'll ask my mother about the topic... I've never heard the term Lar, but it sounds familiar.

It wouldn't be weird that it's the same thing we talk about in Chile, with the difference that there, we've imported many words from the native Mapudungún into the spanish =p

I'm at school right now and I have not much time, but if I remember, I'll share some stories I remember from Chilean folk... Just about those mythical creatures.
