Some, other double take etc. Not ghosts. However, there is something people are experiencing and I think it is the past and brief
time merging. So what people see maybe from the past hence why they see living and moving things.

I've had many experiences in my life that personally disprove that theory. One example is my grandpa's ghost. He died in his house when I was around
13 years old. He had three heart attacks in his later years, so his body just couldn't keep him going past 83. Even though he wasn't alive anymore
you could still feel him around. Especially in the room where he died. If I was outside doing something I wasn't supposed to, such as climbing the
fence(man did he ever yell at us for that), you would feel an angry glare coming from the window.
Now, even as a kid I told myself that maybe I only felt it because he was still in my heart, and I was just feeling bad for doing things he didn't
like. I never just jumped to the conclusion that he was still there. Well, that was until three certain things happened that I can't explain:
1. One night while staying at my grandma's house, I was asleep in the guest room. I felt something in the room with me, so I woke up to see who it
was. I saw this white silhouetted figure standing in the doorway. The best way I can describe it is like if you stared at a light for awhile, the
after-effect is a good description of how he looked. Anyway, I thought that maybe it was my grandma, so I called out her name. Once I did, the
silhouetted figure then turned around and walked through my door.
I decided to get up and follow it. Once I entered the living room I saw it moving across the room and make a left into my grandma's room. It then
just walked right through the door. I knew then that it wasn't my grandma, because her door squeaked VERY loudly when opened, yet there was no sound.
That was the first and only time I actually saw my grandpa's ghost, and not just felt him.
2. When I was around 20 I was dating this girl that told me she could hear/see ghosts, very similar to Whoopi Goldburg in Ghost. I've known a lot of
goth people in my time that loved to claim this, but for some reason I did believe this girl. Well, she proved it the first time I took her to my
grandma's house. I never once told her about my grandpa, how he died, his ghost, nothing. After I introduced her to everyone, we left to go grab a
bite to eat. She was very quiet and weird until I asked her what was wrong. She didn't want to tell me at first, but then after some
poking/prodding, she finally broke down and told me.
"I don't know how to tell you this, but there's a man in your grandma's house."
Once I heard that, I got a big grin. I knew what she was going to tell me, which helped validate what I've felt/seen. She told me that there was an
angry old man standing in the doorway of the room he passed away in, and he kept glaring at her the entire time she was there. She told me it felt
like he wanted her to go away. After she told me all of this, I thanked her and explained the story of how he died. I was happy because I didn't
feel insane, and if I was, at least she was insane too. lol
3. My grandma passed away when I was about 24-25. I remember driving back down for the funeral and walking around the house. The house felt very
empty. Not just because grandma wasn't there anymore, but also because I no longer felt my grandpa. I didn't feel him glaring, being angry, or any
of that stuff. It's like his spirit waited until my grandma passed away before it would move on himself.
That's just one of many experiences I've felt that prove to me that it's not just seeing things from the past.
