just thought i’d put it out there for the whole world to see ……… that i don’t believe in ghosts. and i don’t mean that, by saying I’ve never seen a ghost, or had stuff move on its own.
creaks, bumps in the night …….. my childhood home settled a LOT.
what i mean by “not believing” is that i don’t believe any entity has deterministic value for choice after a dissolution of their corporal structure.
most ghost stories are either sad tales of madness, or disassociated reasoning that gives explanation for erratic behavior. those explanations fill-in for lacks in biological knowledge and the charting or history of the subject involved.
an abandoned building generates a human “fear-response” …..why? because ANY abandoned ‘den’ is a probable site for other creatures that use those facilities for advantage of attack. anybody who has ever played a video game, going into a cave-system where you don’t know what is around the corner ……….. that’s the kind of “natural” fear ANY animal will have entering an unoccupied “den.”
so brush it off, yell a lot as you enter …….. but we go in QUIETLY, feel the hairs raise on the back of your neck, and call it a ghost. which is ok if are children, but adults falling for the ruse?
i don’t know what to think on these things …………. mostly makes me depressed.
the ONE standard it is important to carry, as a dissector of systems, is that you CANNOT just assume that a function you are studying has ALL its variables APPARENT to you. many times there are functions of which you are not aware.
why does hair raise on a neck? BECAUSE a FEAR response for ANY animal is to appear larger than it is.
so how do we ‘get rid’ of ghosts? do you find the pheromone-receptor for that ‘fear-sense’ when entering an empty-den? obliterate the sensing mechanism, and no more ghosts or ghost stories. BUT ………. there are 20 other systems DEPENDENT on that function outside of the ONE malfunction noted.
so an impromptu fix just created 400 MORE problems that NO one can repair. NOW …… what was the ACTUAL malfunction? one of behavioral code ….the CORRECT code is that you walk into an empty den yelling and shouting………”anybody home?!” you walk into an empty den with a weapon to increase tactical advantage.
humans not engaging in these practices, are failing their IQ but it’s the social-instruction that failed THEM. we are talking lacks in instruction, that IF set right —- WILL correct the misperception of “haunted houses.”
but you ‘like’ that …… except now you have a lot of buildings that will NEED to remain empty, and are looking at demolition unless can widely retrain socio-patterns. [hypothesis] there are MANY clues outside of documented awareness that tell a human whether or not a structure is occupied. some newer materials thwart that, some do not. what happens if those senses are thwarted? you end up feeling there is ‘ghost town’ in tract of houses unless SEE people or lights.[/hypothesis]
when it comes to seeing or hearing things in your own home, where then generate a belief that previous owners died there or had this or that happen ………. ANY den where ‘death’ —-any death-den is going to have inherent insecurities due to fear of disease. that which CAUSED the death. when there is no knowledge of histories, such as myself in moving from apartment to apartment ……… one becomes inured to the process. yes, it is difficult when faculties will inform that some structures where designed for optimal advantage and dominance of another member of their family unit. YES, that feels like “ghosts.” so how a home or residence is built IN THE FIRST place will attribute to feelings of trepidation. mostly a recognition-factor of the TYPE of animal that BUILT that den, and a FEAR that that creature MIGHT return.
and that’s it ……………..
i don’t believe in ghosts. i believe that if we are to understand ourselves, we are going to have to see a lot more than mirrors.
