i'll tell you why i believe they're ghosts. back in easter 2006, i was in the nut house for a few weeks.
STOP, no need to continue.
You are right about one thing, they are made out of carbon. They come from exhaust fans. Fans on your computer, things of that nature. Bonded carbon forms on the inside of fans and becomes entangled, but there is so much wind pressure they form strings. When they no longer can stay attached, they float off lighter than air and seem to "dissolve" when they touch something. They don't. They form new bonds to other materials and are the reason you should wash your linens regularly or else become grungy.
By the way, they are mostly composed of dead skin. That's the only ghostly thing about them. There you go, mystery solved. Now we can get back to figuring out who is living inside the moon.
