I'd like to start by saying this is my first thread. Actually it's my first thread ever on a forum, I may be clumsy but you'll just have to bear
with me lol.
I wanted to start off with a little food for thought, I'm not sure if anyone else has posted anything about this or not, so if they have I apologize.
The theory I generally lean towards in regards to "ghosts", is in relation to multiple dimensions, ever since I saw Carl Sagan explaining how
little 2 dimensional people would see us 3 dimensional people. His explanation is basically this: If you were living in a 2 dimensional world, you
would move left, right, forward and backward, you would have no up or down. He showed this with having little shapes cut out of paper on a table,
moving around in their little 2 dimensional land. He then talked about what would happen if a 3 dimensional entity came up to one of the 2 dimensional
entities. He showed this as an apple, if the apple moved through their 2 dimensional plane, the 2 dimensional entity would only see a very thin
"cross hatch" of the apple, it would start out as a single point in space, gradually getting wider as the apple passed through the 2 dimensional
space, then it would start to recede again to a single point, before vanishing into thin air after it left.
Now this is fairly easy for us to imaging because our minds are capable of perceiving 2 dimensions, and 3 dimensions. But imagine if you will, what it
may look like to us if a 4 dimensional entity were to travel through our plane of dimension? What would we see? What would a "cross hatch" of a 4
dimensional entity consist of?
This is where my feeling is when I think about "ghosts", perhaps they are an entity from some 4th, or 5th or 6th etc. dimension, passing through
our 3 dimensional plane. Not to offend anyone but that has more evidence for it than long dead relatives in spirit form jiggling our doorknobs. But it
also opens up another question, what happens to our consciousness when we die? It's been said that energy is neither created nor destroyed, Perhaps
our conscious 'energy' as it were, can travel through dimensions, so in a way maybe it is a family member, just not in the form most people think it
Anywho, I don't think talking about myself is at all interesting so my introduction will be something to think about.
