In my experience.. take that for what it is.. not all ghosts are created equal. There are some that are more or less aware when you speak to them but
simply can't, don't want to or don't feel the urge to respond even though they understand. They tend to be.. kind of an echo of their former selves
with a bit of sentience attached. If you make a logical enough reason for them to stop doing what they're doing, they'll stop.. I've talked one out
of a house he was causing a lot of trouble in, but he wasn't particularly angry. It was more like he was going through his routine and had a bit of
residual bitterness towards women, but not enough to be violent about it.
There's some ghosts which are completely unaware of their location or that things have changed.. they may be passive or a berzerker spirit without
any sanity at all. These are usually the ones that manifest the most from what I've seen and tend more to interact with objects than people. There's
cases when they get spooked that they turn on someone after suddenly being snapped out of their fugue and attacking their observer.. but.. they're
rare as long as you don't antagonize them. These also can be interrupted with high levels of EMP from what I've noticed.. kind of like taking a big
dry eraser to the scene and scrambling any residual energy.
Other than that, I can't speak much about the afterlife for lack of knowledge. I'm sort of under the impression that a smaller percentage of the
population gets taken somewhere else but I couldn't say where or with whom.
