Something which one finds themselves drawn to pursuing, but which is unable to provide adequate fulfillment due to its inherent lack of stimulus feedback. If one claims to enjoy chasing said "laser dot," it's more likely that they enjoy the act of chasing it while imagining what might be there for them once they've obtained it. This leads to hollow goal-oriented obsession and one will find themselves chasing other lights in an effort to make up for the lack of fulfillment that chasing the laser dot leaves them with.
Analogous to cats and dogs becoming obsessed with chasing laser dots, which their lazy owners use to entertain them, and consequently becoming easily distracted by light reflections that are present on the walls of the house at random times throughout the day.

"Dude Look, what are those orange lights up there by the mountain? They're teleporting! Holy crap!"
Probably some sort of gravity-defying craft which uses a propulsion system we're not familiar with. A UFO, I guess. It doesn't really matter. It's a laser dot as far as I'm concerned.
"It just disappeared! I'm gonna see if I can find it!"

Probably some sort of gravity-defying craft which uses a propulsion system we're not familiar with. Or a transdimensional civilization of assholes who can't help but reveal themselves as they observe us. A UFO, I guess. It doesn't really matter. They don't seem to want to interact with us at the moment. It's a laser dot as far as I'm concerned.
