So my Son and I were talking last night. Nothing like a 10 year old's perspective on the paranormal. He simply asked me, "Do Ghosts age?". After he went to bed, that question really got the brain firing. My son's inquiry was regarding a family member of ours who recently committed suicide in his bedroom.
So he asks: " Dad, will Christopher look the same as a ghost?"
It really chewed at my reasoning.
I replied: " What do you mean?"

Good Question. Crazy question I have never thought about. So I ask ATS:
DO spirits when they manifest themselves physically, do they retain, or ARE (committed) to the "form" that moment when they "died"? Is a small child who passed away (for whatever reason they remain in THIS world) Is she to be seen as a small child for the duration of her "stay"?
What if I myself, had a "nasty" zit right on my forehead prior to my death. Would I manifest with that "zit" on my forehead every time?
Do I have a conscience as a "ghost", that I am "dead" ? Would I manifest visually with that "zit", or choose to manifest at a time I "looked better"?
What about the 95 year old widow that passes away in a house? Will she manifest as a "wrinkley old bat, or perhaps something from her youth when she looked a little "better"? Can she change her appearance?
Sooooooo many questions. The questions a child asks....
I could apply this to "Heaven", if you believe.
"What would we look like to each other in Heaven?" An eternal "child" if death came at that time, or a "sucked up withered body that suffered and died from Cancer"??
If I lost an arm in combat, would I be the "one armed spooky man" my relatives might see?
Any and ALL responses I would appreciate. Forgive my "writing skills".....I am way more an individual that would prefer a physical conversation in front of a good fire.....
SO, if I could I would "card" a ghost and ask how old they are.....in regards to this post's title...
