Ghosts .. IMHO ... are 'purgatorial souls'. They are people who are in another dimension but are stuck having to work things out from this life .. like attachments or emotional issues that need resolving. They are other dimensional and yet bound to earth at the same time until they work it out ... that's my guess at this point.

Under this assumption, I have no answer, for I believe in neither.
If you wish to remove this assumption, then I might give you my thoughts.edit on CTuesdaypm161608f08America/Chicago28 by Starchild23 because: (no reason given)

I always thought of ghosts as echoes in the fabric of time.
Certain conditions allow these echoes to be seen or felt across time.

if wouldnt take the "chances"
Hell or not .. better be good then ashame for eternity
If you erroneously believe in God, you lose nothing (assuming that death is the absolute end), whereas if you correctly believe in God, you gain everything (eternal bliss). But if you correctly disbelieve in God, you gain nothing (death ends all), whereas if you erroneously disbelieve in God, you lose everything (eternal damnation).

I 'used' to see a lot of spirits, but none ever spoke to me. I would just see them, sitting or standing there. I never saw one I had known in life, either....even though, when a good friend of mine knew she was dying, we made a pact, and she said she would visit me. 11 years later she never did, and I don't think she ever will.
Wherever they do hang around, whether it is another plane or dimension, I dont think they stay there for very long. I know you hear of residual ghosts, you know, ones who replay a scene over and over...but maybe most don't stop here, or hang around for long, and just cross over to wherever they are going.
I always did expect to see one I knew, after seeing so many, I am open minded about it all, but wonder why they came to see me, for what reason other than to sit there?
I wonder if they are at a Halfway House, just waiting until they are ready to move on...
