I have a theory that ghosts are strong emotions left imprinted into their surroundings.
Emotions are a delicate thing that border between chemical and spiritual and we don't even fully understand them beyond a survival need, but the way they are influenced by how people function today, they are much stronger and last longer than ever before.
My hypothesis is that an emotion left behind or a "ghost" is a combination of pheremones and a mild.. lets say telepathic effect on the environement. Now with good air flow it stands to reason that the pheremonic effect might be washed away hence why not many ghosts appear out doors besides densely populated areas of distress like the suicide Forrest.
This would also explain why animals are so attuned to these reactions, the sense of dread we get that is on a primal level, like that chill that runs your spine when your back is to that dark hallway.
It would also explain why insence are used to ward "evil spirits"
And it would also explain why there is a sense of comfort in the presense of child ghosts, happy and gentle spirits that don't mean harm. We are wired to be calmed in their presence because the pheremones emitted by them trigger a paternal instinct.
It would also explain why hauntings are only really in older buildings/structures, modern AC and air filters prevent the build up.
Thoughts or any other theories about paranormal?
I'm leaning for science in this regard. Ghosts are real, it they exit in a perpetually uncertain limbo, insecure and confused regarding their liveliness, as it is, or their deadness, same way.
What thy are exactly is interesting to say the least. It's a mystery.
>I have a theory that ghosts are strong emotions left imprinted into their surroundings.
That's a very old theory. Along with "ghosts are like photographs of people taken by the objects around them", and "ghosts are a time-slip/warp/vision of the past in that particular place"...
I suppose it makes more sense than the "ghosts are dead people trapped in limbo/just coming to say hi" theory.
i personally think ghosts have something to do with some sort of dark spiritual phenomenon. this is only my opinion.
i have once walked alongside a shadow person, and as he vanished, i walked up on a house with a massive bushfire, to the point where i thought the brush fire would burn down the house i was passing
>curiosity killed the cat... dont kill the cat
stop thinking so much about all this shit,
unless you want to go through a cycle of dread and fear all the way back
to the beginning with the learnt wisdom of simple gratitude.
Just enjoy whatever simple things you have,
stop being so masochistic,
you'll end up fearing your "theories and discussion."
So after lurkng in the rabbit hole and coming out of it with hypersensitivity, psychosis, anxiety, and a lot of trips to the psychiatrist,
I've come up with the best things to do, instead of all this bullshit theory that you'll regret if you keep digging why's.
>Love yourself, love the present.
>Always try to make people happier after they've seen or talked to you.
>Feel more, think less.
>Never regret, accept the past, enjoy the present, and let the future surprise you. Knowledge is power, ignorance is bliss.
>Love everything as if everything were God (protip; it is).
>Make the world a better place, learn to help nature.
It seems there's two types of ghosts at the least though. The imprinted ghost that runs up stairs that fell down long ago, and the aware ghost that will react to you, look at you etc.
I'm not even sure the two types are even part of the same phenomenon or not due to that alone.
Attributing to Jesus what Jesus didn't do is a way to steal credit from nature. Polluting natural beauty with a name like "rose" or "Jesus" or "god" is a spiritual form of pollution that I have every intent to eradicate.
I don't believe in ghosts. Any "evidence" I've seen is easily explained or debunked as accidental or intentional fraud. But you're right about the emotional telepathic "stain" left behind by a powerful emotional experience. I am empathic and feel them here and there.
I think there's at least two different types of ghosts:
The ones like you're describing which I think of as imprints, basically just recordings that certain people can sense/activate and experience the emotions and sometimes trigger a "replay."
Then there are the ones I think of as true hauntings. These are backed by an intelligence, can be interacted with, and might not necessarily be the souls of the dead. They could be even stranger things like thought forms, elementals, or even the Good Folk
