I think there's a difference between a ghost or apparition and what actually happens when one's physical body dies.
The conscious/subonscious part of us survive, thereby explaining the phenomenon of NDE. Where does the consciousness or the mind of a person reside?
To date nobody really knows for sure. It could be part and parcel of the universe, or life force, or Jung's collective consciousness, which ever way
you want to call it. It could be within the body when one is alive, and leaves the body when one dies. Or it could fluctuate in and out of the body at
certain times, like when dreaming or in so called astral traveling which some people experience, or during deep meditation.
However, when it comes to ghosts, I think it is a case of existence on a multi dimensional plane or time. The reason for this line of thinking is that
most reports of sightings of apparitions involves cloaks or garments pertaining to the era from which the ghost derived from.
So an apparition of an ancient Roman soldier would be wearing helmet and other apparel from that time. Likewise, a person from the Victorian era will
have distinctly clothes from that period, and so on.
If, however, you associate ghosts with departed spirits, then shouldn't they all be naked? After all, clothes are man made, so there should not be
any life force in it or anything associated with the spirit world. A ghost from the 60s to the 90's will be wearing rayons, polyester or denims.
I've yet to hear of any account of a sighting of a naked ghost. You are born naked and that's the way you depart this world.
Unless you just move into another dimension of existence and occasionally one catches a glimpse of it and that is when a sighting occurs. At least
that explain why ghosts are always clothed.
