A Conceited Telegram

Question

I am essential, and dangerous.

You can hear me, until you can't.

You can't see me, until you can,

Then see me only through others.

:offtopic: Just to let those playing know, due to the Thanksgiving holiday I won't be on the Den much until Monday. I will try & check in at least once per day to reply to any guesses. For those celebrating, Happy Thanksgiving! For the rest of you, have a great week! ^_^

Either

insect bite

or

alarm

Neither of those.

x-rays or UV light?

Picking up on some clues, but not the answer I need ... -_-

love...???

Not that.

heat?

Nope.

electricity

An almost-alternative, but I agree there is room for argument. I might say it's involved though, in its own way, hmm? ^_^

I meant that some would argue that I think! :P

all lines make me think of radiation.

Each pin-points to different types

I am essential, and dangerous. - applies to both non-ionizing and ionizing radiation.

You can hear me, until you can't. - radiowaves

I may make you hot, won't slow you down. - thermal(microwaves)

You can't see me, until you can, - optical between IR and UV.

Then see me only through others. - (UV, XRays,GammaRays)

So, to encompass all types and the order of the lines (increasing wavelength), I'd say radiation (wave-length) spectrum.

stalker. Stalkers are essential to the world. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a word stalker. Stalkers can be hot too.

hole..although I'm not sure how hot a hole is...

That, my friends, is correct. ^_^

Afraid not. -_-

Electromagnetic (EM) Spectrum/Waves/Radiation

Used everyday in various capacities, some wavelengths cause damage to organic matter

Hear Radio waves, Microwaves & IR used for heating, see the Visible spectrum of light, UV, X-rays, Gamma rays can be seen by using other means, such as Compton Scattering/Effect.

Conceit Telegram -> Electromagnetic

Thanks for playing & hope you all had a good holiday/weekend! :)
