I like to think of myself as an open-minded skeptic/hope-ful when it comes to gohsts and paranormal. I do believe there's unexplainable things out there but I doubt it's Casper the Friendly Ghost.

Earlier I was at my friend's house for dinner and I looked up at the stars. I remembered hearing how a star many light years away can go supernova and we would still see what it looked like before it died. What if poltergeists and ghosts are the same thing? All living things are essentially energy so I'm thinking it's possible that a human is capable of leaving part of himself/herself behind as energy when they die.






Anyways, I bet someone has already created this theory...

Ghost sightings as supernovas of someone's passing? Interesting theory.

A very intriguing theory. It wouldn't surprise me in the least.

That's an interesting theory Hawk. I would've never thought of it that way but I like your thinking.

I think this is actually an amazing and good theory. After all, energy can't die or be destroyed, so what happens to ours when we die?

Exactly. The energy has to go somewhere.

One thing I was also thinking about was a skeptic could argue that a body of a living thing does change into another form after death but that does not mean it would create a ghost otherwise there would be ghosts. However, my counter-argument would be that either some type of freak accident happens such as a storm being outside and "imprinting" the energies or that the person was able to create the ghost due to personal feelings that were able to tap into the power of creating ghosts using adneraline, testereone, estrogen, etc. much like a mother who is able to easily move a car to save her baby. Usually, the story is that the ghost is there because that person suffered a great tragedy when dying or was greatly attached to the place.

Also, a skeptic or believer can argue that my theory is flawed because ghosts and poltergeists do not always react to living things but the atmosphere may not be right for it or, if there is a reaction, the reaction can be like a foot stepping into a puddle of water with water splattering everywhere; a natural reaction that would happen all of the time if everything is perfect for it.

Indeed, I also have heard of them as basically psychic energy echoes, which in a way would fit with this theory...

There's another thougth about ghosts. Remember that Pepsi commercial with Casper? He phased through the refrigerator and grabbed a Pepsi but couldn't phase out the can. Why didn't he just open the door? What does he want with a Pepsi? He's a ghost. Sorry, that commercial always bothered me.

If that were the case with ghosts, wouldn't we be overrun by them? With all the people that have died over the millions of years ghosts should be all over the place. Would that mean that animals could have ghosts too?

There's probably more ghosts than we know, but it depends how sensitive you are. I think some people can see only a few, some not at all, and a select group see them all the time.

To date, I haven't seen any. But I think I may have heard a couple.

Will if that's the case I'm glad I can't see them. :-D
