Why do ghosts wear clothes. WTF! They have no bodies!

I have seen a ghost. I even gave an account here,

I saw a Ghost

Why are they clothed in every accounting of them.

People have near death experiences and everyone is clothed.

It just seems a bit weird!

One expects a ghost to be like Casper



But no, every account of seeing ghosts or seeing heaven or bright lights with your already departed loved ones, has everyone clothed.

Why? What would be the point, you left your body in the graveyard or had it cremated.

Any ideas.

I don't really mind. If Aunt Ethel is going to haunt you, better she is clothed than have her naked form flying around, but it is still strange.

well as always, THE BRAIN, is my explanation. Like when someone sat in a chair in the corner of a room, for years, after he's gone, your brain still assumes he is sitting in the chair if you unfocusedly look over the room.

Just because you're dead doesn't mean you can't have style.

There are actually reports of naked ghosts, however they are not as common.

Well then, hopefully someone on ATS is from a family of practicing nudists and can clear that point up.

Would be interesting.

You are seeing bleed through from a tragic event that has massive levels of emotion attached to it echoing back through time. Simply put you are seeing an event or person from this event and not some ghosty spirit.

Does that suggest that those who see naked ghosts are pervs, peeping toms or sex maniacs

Plausable! Time overlaps i.e. the past can be seen in the present and maybe visa versa

Not in my case. The ghost I saw died peacefully at an old age, or rather the man did. Lol.

Apart from that, I understand what you are suggesting.

It's because of the ghost's residual self image.

They also wear clothes because they don't want to scare people......

Explore the concept of "residual self image" in spiritual terms.

a reply to: mazzroth

There's ghosts attached to places sometimes too. Either they're stuck for a while or someone else is "wearing" the discarded etheric body of the by then departed spirit.

Or so they say at least.

I would imagine some are adept enough to project certain sensations or possibly alter their appearance. Why are they trying to scare people though? My guess would be loosh. Hungry, hungry ghost. Pun intended.

Is it the opposite of déjà vue ?
Maybe vue déjà ?

With all the accounts of time slips I have read here lately, I am more inclined to believe that what we call ghosts or spirits, are more likely glimpses into another time. If Einstein's conclusion is correct, and the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously, then perhaps these times can overlap, giving us a momentary glimpse into another era. In many accounts, ghosts are seen in period clothing, going about their usual routine, passing through a hallway, peering through a window, etc. Along that same line of thought, we may be seen as "ghosts" to the people who occupy the same space as us in the future.
Editing to clarify.. what we refer to as "the future."

I think there are both spirits and the phenomena you speak off and they are two different things.

That is a very interesting take on this question and the much wider area of the paranormal.

Any further reading hints?

REAL ghosts don't.. and by real i mean somewhat formless entity's like a big cloud of smoke.
Those ones make you feel rather unhinged, as if your seeing something you shouldn't have.

The ones in clothes i believe to not be actual ghosts, but "replays" of past events, images burnt into ion ferrite or similar geological minerals.. like your old VCR works, these anomaly can be timed to an almost exact hour, normally linked to the time of whatever high energy event that transpired shortly before ones passing.

Having seen (lived with) both, there is a huge difference between the two "anomalous entity's"

Very much so. Western Science always likes one nicely packaged explanation for everything without understanding that many facets of our existence overlap tremendously.

The tenants of modern science, that of peer reviewed experiments that any one should be able to do with the right equipment, gets in the way of investigating anything to do with the paranormal.

Science does not want to find out how Fido finds his way home traveling hundreds of miles because you need Fido for the experiment and Fido is never available. Science tends to shrug its collective shoulders and say, "Meh."

So yes, there can be more than one explanation for what appears to us as similar events.

The full apparition I saw (and heard) in Japan was fully clothed. Why? I don't know. My guess - It's what they are used to so that's how they manifest themselves. If you think about it, spooks don't need bodies either and yet they manifest looking as they did in life. Other spooks I've seen have been vapor or shadows or balls of light.

Some of these questions can't be answered until we are dead.
Then we'll know the full story.
