I think it's a funny question that instantly sends people into denial without any further speculation.
Do ghosts wear clothes? They're dead, why don't they choose to look younger, or like something else? Do only humans have ghosts? Have you seen any
alien ghosts? What about rabbit ghosts?
Actually something I didn't really consider until a couple months ago, that what you could be witnessing is different timelines and alternative
realities of sorts phasing together. What I mean to say is you could be seeing the person in THEIR living time, which could explain their behavior,
not seeing you, and going about their daily business. As well this brings up the case of ghost ships or other objects. Basically 2 different
timelines/ dimensions that are usually separated are joined together partially.. same thing as people seeing gnomes or faeries or something. I
haven't personally seen any of these things, i'm just speculating.
Ghosts are dreaming?
And as well it could very well be a present energy. I kind of think of the soul like a complex thought-form creation, something in pieces that splits,
but is assembled and shaped through experience. It is NOTHING.. but it is something to experience. I've noticed from astral projection that it's
possible to get STUCK to something. Stronger magnetic or as I call them Yin/Yang fields. The reality itself can inherently be magnetic as the ghost
(thought/energy form) clings to that reality like a powerfully distracting thought in meditation. It could be very well that you could compare this
ghost's experience to dreaming, or simply walking the other realities.
I bring up dreaming for another reason. I think there needs to be a change in how we define dreams and lucidity. I can live a dream where I have a
different life, different friends and I know information on them, know how to react to them. I can also be aware i'm dreaming in that reality but
rarely do I take control. The control seems to simply be swapping one consciousness for another, or bringing that waking soul/personality into that
experience. And not really knowing your surroundings, the themes or people anymore, you just simply explore unless you have an agenda.
I bring this up because of some astral projections as well. Comparatively similar to lucid dreaming but I won't get into that. I'm just saying I
will be looking at my wall, wide-awake in bed.. then without even closing my eyes SEEMINGLY.. I fade into another reality..i'm still looking at the
wall..and then I get out of bed and its a new world. What's interesting is i'll be floating around my house thinking "ok i'll remember this, yes
all of this looks familiar to me so far, looks like I got an accurate version of my waking reality this time, great" But then i'll wake up and
realize none of that was accurate.. but while I was there it resonated with me, it was familiar, and even the body I projected from, in the bed
changed as the scene changed. It's like swapping realities and again like I mentioned about dreaming.. its like going somewhere you know, but the
reality of the person you are experiencing right now reading this screen has a different reality.
In the event that the ghost doesn't know it's dead, I think of it in that dream sense.. you make it "lucid"..sort of just bringing two of its
familiar realities together.. like that lucid dream where you gain control and suddenly think "where am i?"
It could very well be this is a common trait from human consciousness, effects from our life. It could very well be that death is like going into an
astral projection and being oblivious to it for the unaware. It could be because their minds are so scattered, they are focused on different points
and times WHICH when dreaming you can replicate with fantastic detail, you'd never know you died. It could very well be that a certain detachment
/letting go, and focus is what keeps parts of the "soul" from keeping a piece of itself in this reality.
I just think of meditation and how we really aren't the masters of our minds, it's so easy to get distracted and if you follow a thought, it has
certain feelings and you can feel it branch off, and branch off again, and you'll forget how the thought originated or the experience felt, like
moving through a maze.
As for "animal ghosts".. maybe there have been sightings, maybe they are inter-dimensional or again on a timeline overlapping. Or in the case of
them being rare, they could have a different type of consciousness, not the soul / ball of thoughts and experiences like we have, maybe the same, but
maybe they go with the flow of things, something directs them.
I think there are lots of things going on in this reality we cannot see because of our limited human perceptions. I just wanted to really bring up the
topic "why do ghosts have shoes?" Etc.. if you stop thinking of a ghost like a ball of gas or something that doesn't make sense and more like a
THOUGHT like possibly everything else then basically that's where I'm coming from.
Just my speculations.
