The Ghost Ship
Ghosts are making a comeback, but a comeback from where? Where have all the ghosts been? Floating around vacant houses, some dragging chains behind them? Walking around some ones camp ground in the forest at night, or looking up from a lake bottom, still in cement shoes. For some reason even with modern day living, the idea of ghosts is becoming more popular, more people believe in them. There are claimes of ghosts being caught in pictures taken with cell phone cameras today. There has to be a large increase in the ghost population underway.
In the good old days before modern medicine a person just stayed home and died. They were usually dead and gone in short order, without medical care when they got sick. Dying in your own bed, would be the ideal situation for your spirit to want to hang around a while, to keep an eye on things. Becoming a ghost must not be a choice we get, it must be determined by how the death takes place.
I’ve come to believe with all of our modern medicine. There are many new ways of keeping a human body suspended in limbo between life and death. This opens a whole new can of worms. Maybe not a can of worms but a whole new area of discussion about out of body experiences. Some people claim floating around in the operating room, watching the doctors from somewhere up around the ceiling. Most doctors will say that is an impossible thing, it did not happen. In some cases the patient describes in detail parts of the procedure that was being done to him.
There can be an equipment failure, something goes wrong during one of these heart or brain surgeries, the body cannot be held in a suspended state indefinately. If that body dies, I do believe the spirit could leave it to be free somehow. Maybe it gets out and wants to stay as a free spirit, a ghost. Why would it go back to die with the body? There are a lot of travel perks for ghosts.Your spirit will no doubt have the power to travel at the speed of light to a different area, pass through walls and closed doors or whatever. You are a spirit, able to travel anywhere.
Space scientists are ready to announce a breakthrough on new ways of space travel, possibly about light speed. The astronauts spirits could travel to other galaxies. The body reformatted to the original state to do construction work, build space stations etc.. Those ready to return to earth are put back into a spirit state for travel. The ghost ship traveling at light speed.
“Recent surveys have shown that a significant portion of the population believes in ghosts, leading some scholars to conclude that we are witnessing a revival of paranormal beliefs in Western society. A Harris poll from last year found that 42 percent of Americans say they believe in ghosts. The percentage is similar in the U.K., where 52 percent of respondents indicated that they believed in ghosts in a recent poll.” believe
