If you died in a mental hospital, and could then go anywhere else in the universe, why would you still be hanging out there?
Well as for mental hospitals, they usually aren't pleasurable places are they? In most instances, there's pain and suffering, the loss of not being
able to have contact with your families, sometimes even drugs to calm you down and the mental torture that you would place on yourself. Guilt,
depression and 'what not.'
So therefore, imagine all the energy that would have been built up within the woodwork. If you believe in the 'stonetape theory'
gets stored into the buildings foundations over time, then replays itself at certain points throughout the year, then it's no wonder why energy would
be felt...in whatever way it chooses to. As for actual ghosts themselves, well as I pointed out, with all that depression, self torture and loneliness
in a lot of older mental hospitals (they are cleaner and better these days)
then it's no wonder why they could possibly hang around.
Also, why do people also think that ghosts hang out in cemetaries? I just don't understand why people would think that ghosts would want to
hang out around a bunch of dead bodies.
This one is spot on though. Ghosts really wouldn't hang out in cemeteries, and most 'ghost hunters'
would say the same.
They probably wouldn't have ever visited the place in their lifetime, and they wouldn't have a strong bond with the place from the physical realm.
Yes, their body could have been laid to rest there, but by the time of burial the soul would have long gone left the body. Obviously people who have
been buried not in consecrated land would feel let down because their body isn't someplace holy, but as for cemeteries, I can't see many ghosts
wanting to be around there! As you pointed out, why would you haunt a damp, miserable place that holds no memories? It just doesn't make sense.
