I like it! But ghosts aren't real. But I still like it. Makes some sense if you think about it.

Chew on this:
First of all, Science is not able to prove wether ghosts exist or not. So, all of this is in 'theorey' and facts in these areas are lacking.
That said....You, as a person can experience only 5 senses. Sight, sound, touch, taste, and hearing.
EVERYTHING you experience is in your head, EVERYTHING. This is not an idea, this is a fact.
Take, for example, a security camera. The camera, whatever quality, records images and transmits them to a receiver, which transferes it to a television for your viewing.
This is exactly what your eyes do. Your eyes percieves an image, and transmits it to your brain. Your brain inerprets the signal, and you experience an image of what your eyes are seeing.
Basically, you have input devices that take signals and transfere it to your brain, what ever sense it may be.
On a tangent here, I personally believe that your mind (which isn't part of the the brain) is what percieves these images.
Okay, back on topic.
What I believe that a lot of apparitions are, are perhaps 'things' that have properties of being that we cannot comprehend. I think that why we see or hear things, is that everyonce in a while, these apparitions happen to have a property that is compatible with our mind, whatever the property may be. Thats why sometimes you can hear something, and not see it, or see it, and not hear it. I think that they have some other property to them (different dimension possibly) that our mind can't comprehend, so thats why ghosts aren't consistant.
Every ghost encounter you hear, there are all kinds of different things that happen, and you can't nail ONE characteristic to all of them.
So, I believe that ghosts exist on either a separate plane or dimension than us, but have the capability to interact with with us. Who knows what a being not bound by the physical laws of nature is capable of?
So................thoughts, questions.......(intelligent responses appreciated)

Actually, energy is contantly being created AND destroyed, staying pretty much constant, which is why the idea of it not being created or destroyed came up, maybe because it is simpler to think of it that way. As for your theory on ghost and such, I like it. One part that sounds good, but I just can;t understand why, is how you say there are just some properties we can't comprehend, so sometimes we see them, soemtimes we hear them and so on. Would that mean the apparitions have constantly changing properties, or our minds can only comprehend certain ones at certain times?
