The lights,

Interesting interpretation, possibly aided by some subconscious design on my
part...  while researching earthlights on the web I found several eyewitness
accounts describing their movements as "intelligent", "directed",
"controlled" and other adjectives indicating some degree of intent or
volition.  In one account two men describe trying to follow the light, only
to be led through a swamp, with the light always remaining just out of
reach. The witnesses concluded the light was playing with them.

Probably a good reason for me to start trying to grasp isosurfaces... <gasp>
