That's if you even made it to the fire!
Thats if the fire exists....you should try catching it in a jar
And to the Op, there plenty of evidence out there. You're just looking in the wrong places...obviously. Maybe you should switch on your BS meter so you can determine the fraudulent stuff from the real evidence
And just because someone dies, it does not mean that they will turn into a ghostly entity. Your lack of paranormal knowledge is apparent

The answer is because Ghosts don't exist.

I think you need to re-read my post. I didn't say they weren't 'capturable'. I said they were invisible to us. Big difference.
Edit: As an aside; receiving a signal is one thing. However, the OP and discussion of ghosts leant itself to physical capture - meaning held as is and not just received. The cell phone indeed receives and translates the signal but does not 'hold it' physically or keep the signal bottled up physically.

Whats that old tale...The one about the indians before the pilgrims came to America.. It's in that movie what the bleep! The Shaman 'sensed' something was out on the water but could not see it, tho he knew it was there. Once he started seeing the tides act up and water splashing he realized something was there and finally it became clear it was boats the pilgrims arrived on. No-one could see anything because their brains had never had to grasp what a "boat" was. It wasn't until the shaman convinced them to see it, that anyone could even see it with their eyes!
Perhaps thats how ghosts work too, who knows.

In the film, during a discussion of the influence of experience on perception, Candace Pert notes a story, which she says she believes is true, of Native Americans being unable to see Columbus's ships because they were outside their experience. According to an article in Fortean Times by David Hambling, the origins of this story likely involved the voyages of Captain James Cook, not Columbus, and an account related by historian Robert Hughes which said Cook's ships were "...complex and unfamiliar as to defy the natives' understanding". Hambling says it is likely that both the Hughes account and the story told by Pert were exaggerations of the records left by Captain Cook and the botanist Joseph Banks. Historians believe the Native Americans likely saw the ships but ignored them as posing no immediate danger.
