Have you ever wondered why people never get a photograph of a ghost or any type of evidence from these ancient cultures?

Mesopotamia
Eqyptians
Aztecs
Minoans
Sumerian
Babylonians, Etc,

Or even cavemen and neanderthals? No evidence from the millions that died in the Crusades? I have thought about this a time or two and wanted some other opinions, maybe there is some sort of "cut-off" date, for a lack of better terms.

Believe it or not, I've heard similar thoughts expressed before. I can only speculate that there's some sort of "retrieval" scheme in place that brings the wanderers home after a certain amount of time.

Great avatar, by the way....

At the moment of death, everything appears confused. The soul takes some time to recover its self-consciousness, for it is as though stunned, and in a state similar to that of a man waking out of a deep sleep, and trying to understand his own situation. It gradually regains clearness of thought and the memory of the past in proportion to the weakening of the influence of the material envelope from which it has just freed itself, and the clearing away of the sort of fog that obscured its consciousness.
The duration of the state of confusion that follows death varies greatly in different cases. It may be only of a few hours, and it may be of several months, or even years. Those with whom it lasts the least are they who, during the earthly life, have identified themselves most closely with their future state, because they are soonest able to understand their new situation.

This state of confusion assumes special aspects according to characterial peculiarities, and also according to different modes of death. In all cases of violent or sudden death, by suicide, by capital punishment, accident, apoplexy, etc., the spirit is surprised, astounded, and does not believe himself to be dead. He obstinately persists in asserting the contrary; and, nevertheless, he sees the body he has quitted as something apart from himself he knows that body to be his own, and he cannot make out how it should be separated from him. He goes about among the persons with whom he is united by the ties of affection, speaks to them, and cannot conceive why they do not hear him. This sort of illusion lasts until the entire separation of the perispirit from the earthly body, for it is only when this is accomplished that the spirit begins to understand his situation, and becomes aware that he no longer forms part of the world of human beings.

VERY interesting thought....I never tout about it, but it's so true. Seems like the ghosts people see are no older than say 200 yrs.

I'd LOVE to hear if anyone has seen, or heard a story about seeing an ancient ghost.....

Great thread.

Interesting. If you are a believer, then you would have to assume they eventually went somewhere, otherwise there would be over 100 billion ghosts floating around, in some way, shape or form.

If ghosts are made up of energy, maybe the ability for them to draw this energy and to keep going, stops, after a few hundred years or so. Let us just hope we have life after death after death.

Thanks for the link, i was not aware of that story.

What an amazing, yet terrifying experience for that poor man. One hell of an encounter

I,ve always considered the majority of ghosts to originate from approx. the middle ages forward, as this is the era where religion, particularly christianity put the fear of judgement, hell & damnation into people. With that sort of religious indoctrination going on, no wonder departed souls may be too scared to move on.

Good point, I guess ghosts could have anxiety about moving on to the next realm. Wouldn't be human if you didn't. I just hope all those poor cavemen moved on, i mean they didn't have any religon.

I suspect because they have recycled. Probably many times by now. As for ghosts, I suspect those that haven't recycled are the wanderers for a reason....i.e Punishment/Education.

Here's a video about Roman ghosts witnessed in York. For some reason when I link to Youtube it comes up blank so I'm going to leave another link just in case.



www.youtube.com...

I think there have only been a handful of sightings in the UK and I'm not sure about the rest of the world.

Any way isn't the UK famous for ghosts?

my grandfather was working in his cellar when he turned around and saw roman soldiers walking past him, he did note that he could not see their feet. i dont know if they were ghosts or just a replay in time.

i could not believe how similar their stories are, but i dont think it was ghosts they saw like i said earlier i think it could be a replay in time or something like that.

my grandparents did see alots of things in their time like for instance my grandmother had given birth to my aunty and had just finished feeding her when my grandads mother who had been dead for a number of years walks in the room says hello and that she had just come to have a look at the baby then walks out again!! this happened during the daytime! my grandad seemed to sense something as he came running up the stairs asking what had happened but he did not see anything.my family have lots of stories like these, it just proves to me that there is life after death
