Hi everyone, not having ever posted on these threads I thought some here may find this interesting.

I stumbled upon this

www.heraldsun.news.com.au...

It is quite long so I'll spare you all the long post.

I for one believe this may not be some sort of delusion, however I am no expert on the varied effects of trauma.

Has anyone heard of this type of thing before?

Reminds me of the GhostBusters movie, when all the ghosts escaped and terrorized New York.

I myself am thinking mass hysteria, or maybe a few sightings blown way out of proportion.

Many New Yorkers were sure, that the 911 attack sites were haunted after the collapses. Nothing unusual, especially within the primitive undereducated Thai community, who believe everything they "see", or others say.

Wow, that is quite the can of worms you are trying to open there... Sure am glad that I didn't say it...

After all, the Thai leadership is responsible for the 130thousand+ dead, not the tsunami. Seeing the area on TV, and the things they say about them here in EU, I have nothing else to think of. But perhaps in reality they could be knowledgeable wise people.

I wouldn't call them primitive or uneducated...in fact the 1 tribe that I read about the Jarawa tribe (who are admittedly primitive) had a 100% survival rate...I hardly call that undereducated...I call that very smart in terms of what was happening.

I think what we are seeing is a perfectly natural reaction to a tragedy that we can not relate to. Nearly 200,000 dead (last I heard, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) and families torn apart.

I think we are seeing people who are trying to recover, while trying to grieve, while trying to comprehend what has happened to them. They are grasping for every hope that they can that it's going to be alright and it shouldn't suprise anyone that they're seeing ghosts. They are remembering their families and friends and hoping they are ok and the sightings are most likely a psychological response acting as a coping mechanism.

While I do not discount for 1 second the possibility of haunts in the devestated area, I think it's way to close to be able to tell anything one way or the other yet. People are going to be scarred for a long time and some may never fully recover. Give it time...in 2 years if there are still several sightings around those areas then there may actually be something.

For now, I think it's just people trying to cope.


*edited to add*
forgot to put the link for the article about the tribe who had everyone survive.

here ya go

The Jarawa tribe are in the Indian administered islands of Andaman and Nicobar NOT Thailand.

They and their geogaphical cousins, the Sentinelese hardly socialize with the outside world. They are supposedly the only paleolithic human species left in the planet. (see here)

In this part of the world (SEAsia), there are many versions of belief in the supernatural. Idols are worshipped, Gods of War, of wealth, etc. Also many forms of black magic is practiced. Interesting thing is that throughout the region (spanning different countries, 1st world countries included), Thai black magic is considered the most potent.

Now I wouldn't attribute this too undereducated people at all. Since when does the minority of thoughts apply to the majority.

didn't realize there was another thread on this, but this is what I posted in the other:
quoting myself


experts my a.....


it has long been believed that people who die sudden and unexpected deaths are sometimes trapped, stuck or at times simply unaware of their state after their demise.

given how these people, same as many in the wtc disaster will never get a proper funeral or burial rites, they or remnants of their spirits linger in the area of their death.

and the Thai people, I believe are not as dissillusioned as most of us in the west are when it comes to alternate realities and the afterlife. People there deal with deaths much differently than we do and their spiritual beliefs and practices have always led them and many in the eastern world to be more aware of the paranormal than us westerners.

Whats intresting is that the thais are seeing foreign ghost aswell.
perhaps events of this nature cause some kind of etheric echoe, with so many at once killed, and a mass number of souls unaware of their death.
Im sure sometimes some people dont knowthey have died, the soul is in shock. The mind being a powerful thing, the soul subconciously projects a body because the concious mind expects it.
Eventually awareness sets in and the projected body (ghost) fades and the haunting stops. The same phenomena might account for accoustics.
Ive read of mass hauntings of battlefeilds aswell, so perhaps my theory has a grain of truth to it.

I remember being in barracks one night and could distinctly hear the sound of soldiers marching in the parade square, commands and all. Commands were being issued by a very British accented voice. The camp I was in pre-dated WWII and the camp was used built and used by the British then. It was not only me. My entire platoon heard it as well. Freaky. It was 2 am in the morning and I did look, only to find it deserted. This is the closest I have ever been to experiencing something like this.

I agree, Worldwatcher....ghost stories are usually associated with sudden and tragic death....reguardless of the location.

Many of those stories local to my area (Southeast US ) also deal with lost children or with someone suddenly separated from a loved one....after all, what better reason to 'come back', but to search for a lost child or mate.

Right... how about those few hours time, until the tsunami reached the shores? The entire World was warning the Thai authorities that it will come and destroy everything. What did that highly corrupt government do?! Nothing! Let's call these people smart and educated, with 100% survival rate.

Anyway, the World will probably talk about this issue too, because it wasn't a natural disaster. Far less could have died if the authorities would have warned the population.

You can do better than that Vertu. The fact is your statement has no basis in fact at all. The whole world was not trying to warn them, and their gov would not have ignored it. You made that up.
One more time, please provide proof of your statements veracity.

This is already a major issue, and you have a search engine just like me, too.

Why not provide a proof/evidence for you? Because it is a great conspiracy already. And I am not going to play the fool for you. Go on, take a search! You can decide what is true or false. But you should know, that things are not clear yet, and will change every day.

One thing is sure: The Thai authorities did nothing, but they had their chance.
