I've always been of the belief that there are types of ghosts. That one type, an echo for instance, is caught in a loop. This type of ghost is
constantly reliving out an event from it's past existence. Much like Chicago's Resurrection Mary. This being the case, the echo cannot respond to a
ghost hunter asking "is there anyone here with us" because the echo isn't actually sentient, but is instead a loop, like a record caught on
Another type are the discarnate, diabolical and aggressive type. These are remnants of angry, spiteful, or animal-like people. There civility has been
eroded away. So why would an animal respond to any kind of vocalized language? It would just be an angry, feral beast.
Occasionally you'll have a sentient, knowledgeable ghost. However, if this is the case, it is probably remaining tied to this plane of existence for
the simple fact that it's here to dispense something. If the ghost hunter doesn't go seeking the appropriate information, this type won't respond.
After all, if you're truly aware of your disembodied state and aren't caught up in an emotional trap - why would you stay in one place unless you
had a specific purpose for it?
Just my opinions though. As for the OP, I don't like/trust any "ghost hunting" TV show. All of them are over-sensationalized, and intellectually
dishonest to one degree or another. They either discredit everything that doesn't show up as an EVP or on the electromagnetic reader - or they
discredit any ability to feel these things as psychological or neurological interference.
When you've had a genuine experience, you don't care if it shows up on some EVP or not. That's my stance.
