Is it possible that ghosts are both real and unreal? They could be mental events, created not with physical stimuli, but nonphysical stimuli acting directly on the brain. This stimuli could originate from an independent, conscious source existing outside our plane and creating it through entanglement. The brain interprets the signals and generates the ghost. In other words, the ghost is real, but only manifested in the mind of the observer. But in classical sense, since it has no observable state, it is not real. I think a ghost may be like software. It has no existence without a computer, a medium through which its instructions are interpreted.

Well all this topic has become was a debate.
I asked questions that now appears can't be answered. All we have is theories and knowledge that is trivial because none of us have actually experienced death.
The thread started as a series of questions. There have been some good theoretical responses. I was foolish to have asked for truth in a matter that none here including myself can conceive. Then it moved onto whether or not what people are seeing is ghosts. Instead other theories were presented. Some neglected them and stuck by their beliefs others accepted the possibility. But what I've realized is in the end it does not matter. NONE of US have had the first hand experience.
I still don't think that there is a life after death which is scary especially since I'm undergoing an operation tomorrow. I remain open minded though that there is that possibility of an existence after the time of you are physically deceased. I will not overrule it. How can I?
I will probably not be returning to this topic as I have to prepare for some events that may be coming. I need to center myself and stay away from the forums for awhile.
God Bless all who have posted here and the other members of ATS. The truth seekers. Perhaps I will see you all again, perhaps not.
Til next time.....

That's a load of guesswork there!
The 'light' people speak of moving to can be explained by what the brain goes through when it starts to shut down. To ignore that explanation and start claiming it's due to more fantastic causes is abject irrationality. There are rational explanations for the whole host of experiences people have when they die.

"Real" doesn't equal "ghosts". As I've stated repeatedly through this thread, is it possible for people to misunderstand what they're looking at.
Belief in something without evidence is irrational. You, by definition, are being irrational.
