    Default Ghosts and spirits

    What is your feeling on this topic? How would you describe a ghost or spirit? Do you believe in them? Have you seen one? If so, what is their purpose of being on earth? (And whatever other thing you'd like to say about them.)

    I only know one person who's claimed to have encountered one. Said it reached out and grabbed her. And since she's one of the saner people I know I believe her, although I don't believe in ghosts?! *shrugs*

    I'd love to believe in them. Unfortunately, it's one of those things where you hear endless stories about them from other people, but never get to witness it for yourself. At least in my case.

    Old buildings are full of them....it's more like psychic imprints...impressions. Old hospitals are the worst though. I've never actually seen one, and would really like to say I don't believe, but I know better than that. Shame I can't prove it.

    Why would you just believe it, without experiencing it?

    I've felt the vibes...I just haven't seen it.
    It's hard to explain, without sounding like a nut job.

    Feeling the same about it as Beat does.

    Don't believe in this, think there's plenty of people who'd stage a ghost story or misinterprets an explainable event for ghosts/spirits. Would not ever believe in this, and even if I encounter something irl, I'd have doubts, no doubt about that!




    Slightly funny story though, many years ago my dad had a friend over who brought a psychic person with him. I was 10 at the time, anyhow, we always go searching from antlers (deer drop them each year and there's plenty of deer in the forests where I live) and my dad gave him one antler of a deer he wanted to find the other antler from as well and asked the psychic, for fun, if he could see where the other antler was. The psychic took the antler and started explaining what he was seeing. Big fire, oak trees, and specifically an oak tree with a triangle shaped marking on it. A week later, my dad found the antler at the based of an oak tree that had a triangle shaped marking on it in an area of the forest that had been burnt down ten years before that. My dad knew that since he was a fireman as a hobby, and was at that forest fire those years ago... Now, how can you explain that a psychic can see where the other antler is in great detail, describing aspects that have all been pretty specific to that area. And the other antler was unmistakenly the other antler of the same deer.




    Personally, I think my dad's friend had already found the antler and staged the whole thing. :P

    But moral of the story is, luckily some things are unexplainable, or not yet explainable. Gives us INTP's stuff to do.

    Ghosts and spirits are one of those things that bunches of people have claimed to experience yet no one has ever proven. Why would such things always be vague and hidden and personal and mysterious? Why don't ghosts ever wash over the superbowl or take over a float parade for all to see?

    And the only rational conclusion I can come to is that they don't exist, and the people with the stories are lying, exagerate circumstantial coincidence, will positive/negative emotions onto themselves, or are just plain loopy.
