The Ghost Is According To The Perception Of The Mind
Posted 19 September 2020 - 08:24 PM
For example, when you see a corpse in a movie, with a corpse given a coat or a female corpse in a long white dress. Whereas in Asia, when a Muslim dies he is given a white cloth to wrap the body of the corpse. Then the ghost that appears like a corpse will be buried. We call the ghost pocong.
Do you agree with my opinion? because that's how it is in Asia, because we never met a ghost in a Dracula costume.

I have never seen a spirit in a Dracula costume either, for that matter I haven't seen them shroud in a sheet, coat, or long white dress.
So maybe a person's perception does play some part of how they appear!
I believe spirits are able to appear in a form that is comfortable for the person they are visiting; then there are those spirits that want to put the fear into their visit!
Interesting topic thanks for sharing

No I do not. There's no way to test it. Extensive testing under controlled conditions are required with unjaded bias. Then ask the question and don't try to fit your findings. Let the evidence stand by itself.
A better understanding comes from observation in a collective experience. A good example would be in the Doris Bither case where 28 investigators experienced the exact same thing (allegedly). It's not uncommon for individual experiences to differ even under a collective experience.
This has been one of the most frustrating parts of my paranormal journey. There is little to no consistency. Although a different mindset might need to be employed for understanding. What is it? I haven't found it and to date I don't anyone really has.
I hope I'm not executed for saying this but I try to remove as much religious belief within investigations as possible. For some it might help but for myself it just adds additional speculations. Science isn't perfect but it's the best we have presently.

I have never been a religious person but what I have documented (ITC & EVP captures) there sometimes seems to be a religious component to it. In the end, this is beyond science and the world as we understand it. My mindset is that I need to prove nothing to no one as I am not trying to prove or convince anyone of anything. My experiences are my own and do so only to expand my own view of my existence. Science has no more chance of proving me wrong than I do of proving science wrong because this fits into the category of the unprovable. The more I have experienced, the less I know and the more questions I have. For me, it is diminishing return knowledge. Like pondering the "big bang theory". That is why it is frustrating but still fascinating.
Sorry, harituban992, I didn't mean to stray so far off the path of your question.

I'm a journeyman just like you PE. I don't have many answers but refinement has allowed me to see just a little bit more.

You and I are good PE. I don't mind being challenged as long as it remains respectful.

I prefer to call them spirits not ghosts.
Light and Shadow. A place where the line is blurred between both worlds.
Nothing is as it seems. Shadow doesn't always mean evil and light doesn't always mean divine.
