Good books on ghosts

There's a fictional story which is completely ghastly, containing some elements of the real unrecognised realities that can arise from meddling. The imagery, though not violent in any way is nonetheless quite likely to remain with you as an unwelcome memory.

 

It's a short story, 'Oh whistle,and I'll come to you, my lad', by M.R.James.

I don't think there are any good books on ghosts. Not because I don't believe in their possibility, but because I don't think we really understand what we are perhaps perceiving when we take for granted what we are "sensing" - if indeed they do exist.

 

Ironically enough, understanding what they are has much to do with time does it not? ^^

 

Even if it did not / there are possibilities to that (as hard to comprehend as they may be) that could start to rule out some of the "other" possibilities.

 

Here's one or two off the wall random thoughts for you;

 

How do you know for 100% certainty that a ghost is not a projection of your mind, or a collective projection of minds in a vicinity?

 

Perhaps where they occur, there is some quantum never understood particle, that creates a small opposite blackhole effect and imprints time upon time in a layered transparent effect and is being viewed by us both via string theory? (both relating to the mirrored).

 

I'm not saying they are, I'm only asking you for 100% proof they are not ;)

 

Then you can get really complex with your imagination and combine the two ideas.

 

A quantum particle that reacts to conscious thought....

 

Oh goodness that might just be that double slit thingy...oops - probably shouldn't draw any connotations to ghosts here...

 

That's the great thing about life, all the possibility ^^ :oops:

Every journey begins with a single step.

The ghost thing is something that starts one day then one day it stops. If they are real it is my belief that they are a shadow left behind on space time by the former person. Maybe even some type of shadow with a diminsional shift. There would have to be some physics behind it for it to exist other wise there is some other explanation for it. The one documentary I really enjoyed watching about ghost was called "When ghost attack." I highly recommend that one for none believers.

Then again we get back to basics on our "perceptions" - being a total chemical reaction in the brain.

 

Then ghosts being a "memory" - just as a distinct scent that can be "recalled" without in actuality "being there" (watch open brain surgery when they are poking around sometime with the patient conscious for feedback).

 

I guess the topic then comes back to and asks the question of "shared experience"

 

- most ghost encounters seem typical of individual experience.

 

Others would have more elaborate possibility I'm sure.
