I read both your links as to a "scientific" explanation, and it appears that the explanation is pure conjecture, nothing more. To say that somebody
is merely experiencing a "grief hallucination", or that psychics are simply more attuned to the physical environment is just a guess.
Science falls woefully short when it comes to ESP, ghosts, etc., because there is no way to tell when it's going to happen, so how can the standard
scientific experiment hope to catch lightning in a bottle?
I have had a myriad of experiences concerning those who have passed on, and these experiences lead me to believe that the visitations were real.
Science cannot explain them.
Instance #1: My father was in a horrible car accident which eventually claimed his life. While he was in a coma, I was house hunting. The day
before the real estate agent was to take us around to show us some country properties, I had a dream that I was in a house I had never been in before,
and there was a knock at the door. It was my father, looking as he did when I was little. He didn't say anything, but his eyes were made of amber,
and embedded in the amber were fossils.
This was before I ever had a computer, so I could not have known about the houses we were to be shown. The real estate agent showed us a bunch of
houses, and we didn't really like any of them. He said, "Well, there's one more, it's a bit farther out than what you might like, but if you want to
see it, I'll take you there." We said yes, and he took us to an area we'd never been to before, and when I walked inside the house, it was the house
from my dream the night before, down to the last detail. My hair stood on end and I knew we were meant to be there, so we bought it. I have no
explanation for it.
Instance #2: Three days after my father passed, around midnight, a phone that was by a painting he had done in the dining room kept ringing. We had
4 phones in the house, and only that one rang. It would ring three times, and then stop. This went on for an hour. I kept feeling that my father
was trying to say something. I picked up one of the other phones, and got a dial tone while the one phone was ringing.
. My then husband went
out to where the phone was, and a super-bright flash of light exploded in his face. The light was blue-white, and sort of like a flash bulb. We
checked the lights, which had not been turned on, and they were fine. I felt anger coming from that light, for some reason. Five years later, my
husband did such awful things to our family, I cannot help but feel that was a warning from dad.
I called Southern Bell, the manufacturer of the phone, and tried to get a solid explanation, but they said their phones don't do that, and the guy on
the phone said he'd never heard of any phone doing that.
Instance #3: My older daughter's father was murdered. My daughter was an absolute wreck. In order to gather my thoughts, I went to an old country
cemetery just to sit and think. I heard the deceased voice say, "I'm fine, really I am. I'll prove it to you. Go to where the light is." It had
been foggy, but a small patch of light shown through an area of the graveyard where a fresh grave had been dug. I went to the grave, and it had the
first and middle name of the deceased. This was a fresh burial (within a few days), there was no way I could know. I never got the paper, didn't
have the internet, so I had no idea.
I have many more, but I think these suffice to make my point: Science cannot explain the supernatural, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.
It does, and we need to be open to experiencing that which we cannot explain.
