Re: Ghosts?

I am less skeptical about ghosts than I am about the afterlife. I dunno, I think that there may be something there (or lots of somethings, conflated into one supposed phenomenon). There are more things in heaven and earth, etc. But I don't think that even if there is a truly weird phenomenon going on it has much to do with a self-aware entity that has survived the death of the body. That would probably be like a computer program continuing to run on thin air after the computer and monitor have been smashed up and sent to the junkyard. One can wildly hypothesise, though, that some element in old stone buildings can somehow record and pay back the memories that pass through a person's mind in their final moments. But then, there are no arbitrary limits on wild hypotheses.
