By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.
Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.
John Updike, September
Ghosts: More science than superstition?
Many people today do not think ghosts exist.
I've seen and talked to a ghost twice in my life. It wasn't a scary experience -- nothing like in Hollywood movies -- but I can't explain what happened, except that I was talking to a dead person.
With that said, there are 3 different 'types' of ghosts.
One is what is called a 'tape'. That is, it is a magnetic image that the environment (normally stone) is holding and projecting. These types of ghosts function the same way a cassette tape does. These are not dead people, but pictures or sounds from the past. Normally, if they are images, they stand in one place and do not talk or move. Stories about them normally start "when conditions are right...."
The second is what is called 'free-roaming energy' or fetch. These are what make poltergeists and the ghosts that can move objects. These are also not dead people, but kinetic energy. The best example of this is the Winchester House in California, USA. It is considered one of the most haunted houses in the world and is full of fetch. What can happen in the Winchester House is truly terrifying.
The third type of ghost is a spirit outside of its body. It doesn't matter if the body is alive or dead. You can see the spirits of both living and dead people. These are the ones we normally think of when we say 'ghost', and this is the type I've talked to.
To me, all three of these types of ghosts make logical, scientific sense and are based in scientific fact, not in superstition.
Have you ever seen, heard or met any of these three types of ghosts like I have?
