Gold stars in Braid

I went back to play Braid and just realized there are gold stars you can collect. I never knew this. Is there anyone who knows what they do, never knew about this, or has found them all?

I've gotten a couple of them.  The easiest one is the one embedded in the World 3 painting.  I don't think anyone really knows their purpose though, I've seen a few talks/lectures given by Blow and he has refused to answer questions about them.

That is just odd.

They have a slightly significant impact on the end of the game. Most of them are extremely hard to get, and one even takes about 2 hours. It's a fun little challenge though!

They don't do much and they are the best hidden objects I have ever seen in a video game. You're going to have to do some obscure stuff to get them all. Even if you know a level has a star, it's unlikely that you will be able to get it.
