    Very interesting. The article said this same experience occurred to six other cabbies. More sad than scary though. That in the afterlife there is this intense longing to return to our home, as in a dream that is repeated every night.

    I'm just upset that in the afterlife, I won't have a car. Maybe if they bury me with/in my car?

    Also, if you commit theft (skipping out on a taxi fare) while dead, does that preclude entry to heaven?

    This type of logic is unrealistic and kind of silly . And the 'explicitly stating they were victims of 2011 disaster' is hilariously comedic. If people
    often operate illogically and randomly its unrealistic to attribute or expect even more logic to a 'phantom'.

    Discovery evidently didnt bother even to read the article busy with condescension because it wasnt five years after but a few months after the disaster it started to occur.

    Looking at ancient graves and tombs, it seems to be sufficient to have a car model or even a car symbol buried with one, to gain a car in afterlife. The car itself cannot be transferred either, so the symbol is the important part.

    But people say here, "There are no pockets in your last shirt", meaning, you can't take anything with you if you die.

    My personal belief follows that notion. Death is the end, there is no afterlife. Still, such reports make me think again and again, if I have made a mistake in my conclusion. But if there is an afterlife, and so many people are dying every day, why are there so few ghosts in comparison?

    Because everyone is different just as in life? Some want to interact and some dont? Some people may be more open unwittingly to picking these things up in their conscious? Maybe they dont exist as in its not a ghost but maybe a remnant of an energy imprint? Who knows? But they experienced something or lying or imagining.

    Because it gives them the concept so they can create that in their dimension. Just like how we formulate concepts here seemingly out of thin air. Maybe we are always swapping ideas floating about like recipes. Who knows? I just made that up. The phantom fares is a wacky story if its even remotely possible.

    Not only is it silly logic, it is a logical fallacy called argument from incredulity. One encounters this fallacy over and over again in topics like these: because I can't understand something or it doesn't make sense, it must therefore not be true. That's a fallacy. Frankly I accept that reality is full of mysteries everyday. But that doesn't mean there's no reality.

    Did they all know each other?
    Did the other 5 come forward after the first one got media coverage?

    They must've hallucinated their cab fares. Must happen all the time eh?

    The ghost paid her cab fare before vanishing? How thoughtful of her.

    You'll have to take the bus, with Bigfoot and the leprechauns.

    I find these urban legends fascinating, they're usually linked back to some kind of social anxiety about something. I'm wondering if I can get away with not paying a cab fare by just looking a bit pale and flaky and asking if I'm dead before making a run for it...
