Based on my experience (which I'll explain below) I think some ghosts might be echos. Others seem to be aware of humans.
I grew up seeing them. A white ghost every morning. Once a native American woman in a bright patch-work quilt who was looking at me (red arrows for
eyes - weird!) Then there was a cat ghost, so yeah I think animals can be ghosts too (it was aware of me so I'd rule out an ethereal echo).
Seems to me, ghosts are fairly recent, not going back a few hundred years, so I'm of the opinion that the echos and ghosts either fade or move on.
Due to my nature, I'd normally be quite skeptical of this subject, but I know what I saw as a child. It wasn't like fleeting glimpses either. Once
I told my parents at the age of 5, the sightings stopped. :/ I suppose I could've been hallucinating all of it though, which is also something I
haven't ruled out.
