This thread is using the assumption that there is a soul.
Can you prove its existence?
People assume that there is a soul and that it resides in a body.
Consider this, the body keeps the mind alive...the mind is a bunch of thoughts...which are a bunch of neurons sparking, etc.
So people probably made up the idea of soul...they tried to separate soul (mind) from body, because of misunderstanding based on there "minds"
ability to understand things and itself.
But in relality, withouth the body, the mind would stop...and that soul is not there, would die.
I know I explained that as clear as mud, but those interested may ponder this for themselves.
It is startling when you change your perspective to think that the body supports the working of the mind, which seems autonomous.
Perhaps ghost are fleeting and live on the edge of our imaginations, as that is what they are...a part of our imagination.
So in that sense, yes, you can catch your ghost.
