    Have you ever seen a ghost?

    Do you believe in ghosts?  Have you seen one, or felt you've communicated with someone who has passed away?  Did it scare you?

    No, I've never had any supernatural experience. I really do think ghosts are a manifestation of the human mind, due to schizophrenia, stress, lucid dreaming or other mental activity. Pareidolia probably also plays a big part in turning patterns of light and shade into something perceived as a human figure.
    We are moving at a velocity of several hundreds miles a second through space. So if a ghost appears stationary with no relative motion, does this imply they are made from matter just like us and affected by gravity?
    I heard a story once of a person who was badly short sighted. Yet they were clearly able to see, what they perceived to be a ghost in the distance, without their glasses. This suggests that they weren't seeing with their eyes, but instead the image was created by their mind.

    Not that I know of, but then again I'm not much of a believer in the supernatural. I find people's ghost stories interesting but I always question if it's true or not. I assume it would be very unnerving to have a ghoulish experience if it ever came about.

    Yes, I totally believe in ghosts, they'll communicate with us and according to the holly books (all religions) ghosts are mentioned. But, according to science it is just perception.
    Basically, someone believe when they faced similar sorts of accident.
    Now it's depend on you which you prefer science or the holly books ?

    I ponder while hint that quite possibly maybe in fact I have. The generalized notion for a ghost is the spirit of and/or soul of the dead that appears and is witnessed by the living. When unsure I like to ponder the antithesis. Could that be the living appearing to a spirit. One may ponder which is the ghost of disbelief becoming believable. Of course then one may inquire of angels. Do angelic beings have privilege to seeing both spiritual entities and living entities. hmmmmm . . . I wonder if that gets confusing for them.

    I believe there is the body, mind, soul, and spirit for a person. I speculate how many of those mammals or even any of the animal kingdom in general may have. Ever wonder about your cat having nine lives?

    Could it be the human species is privilege of all four while maybe other mammals are missing one of those four? A reptile enjoys possibly only two. It gets really interesting when one considers the human species brain is said really to be three joining together becoming a fourth - reptilian, limbic, and neocortex. Alas, I wander in thought . . .

    Have I ever seen a ghost? Firstly, to answer that question is first to know of whom the ghost is of. If I have never met the person, of which there is a spirit, then how would I know if a ghost or not if made avail to my senses? For instance maybe I have met the ghost of Alexander the Great, yet simply do not have the capacity or ability to recognize the very fact whom I met is in fact a ghost since never meeting Alexander the Great much less knowing him.

    Do I believe in ghosts? Since I believe as shared a person of human form has a body, mind, soul, and spirit then I assuredly I must answer with yes since by definition a ghost is a spirit. Difference shared by definition is that spirit reveals itself through some means.

    Have I seen one? I have to say most likely, yet I have no proof or of the least proof that is acceptable possibly even of this 'self'. After all I did not know Alexander the Great.

    Do I feel like I've communicated with someone who has passed away. The definition for communication is the exchange of information or express feelings, thoughts, or ideas with someone using words, sounds, signs, or behaviors. I always wonder about this especially when my computer is acting up both on the internet and off. I just wonder. Of course I am simply weird to begin with. I think funny things like some butterflies and birds are angels in disguise. Aren't hummingbirds simply amazing :-)

    I do and I have. They weren't in a misty form as depicted in movies. They were in human form. The first one was a boyfriend who died when I was in high school. And, no, I wasn't afraid. He came to say goodbye.

    I've also seen a little boy in my house when I was married to my second husband. He was just curious and didn't stick around for long. He'd peer around a corner when I was in another room. As soon as I turned to look at him, he'd be gone, but I saw him clearly out of the corner of my eye. I believe he was a brother of my ex's that died as an infant. Why he appeared to be about 4 years old is beyond me, but I truly felt that's who he was. I wasn't afraid of him, either.

    I believe in ghosts.
    I have never seen one, but pictures I took in Gettysburg have faces in them, if you look closely.  Soldiers I think.
    Gettysburg is supposed to be one of the most haunted towns in the United States.  I have visited 3 times and stayed in a haunted bed and breakfast.  Very strange things happened in the room where my friend and I stayed. 
    The battle of Gettysburg was so horrendous, and many ghost tours are held there.
    In January 2014 I took my morning walk.  It was snowing.  I took a picture of a tree, and there is a 'form' in the tree.  I posted it on Face Book and my girl friend said, 'It looks like our Lord."
    I DO believe in Jesus Christ and I am saved by His grace, but I still believe we live in a very spiritual world and apparitions are everywhere, including angels.  GREAT question.
