    Apparently you have not seen Terminator II and III. Good stuff to be sure, but not really real was it?

    So you have no evidence it was faked at all. Ofcourse you don't. And just saying it is doesn't prove anything.

    You are really desperate to make something out of nothing, aren't you?

    I didn't see nothing in those videos. And neither did you.

    Because the Spiritual Border is only required by law to provide ghosts with those boring bedsheets -- after checking their passports, strip-searching them, and sending them on their way. Many ghosts thus flock to a NecroMall as soon as they've garnered enough scare-tokens to purchase better outfits.

    While a Spectral Goodwill Store can in theory receive second-hand clothing from the deceased stratum of extraterrestrial civilizations, the latter aliens would need to have anthropic-like forms for their apparel to even have a chance of fitting properly on human ghosts. The neutered Greys, despite being humanoid, accordingly don't have any goodies to begin with for shrouding in modesty:

    I did, it was a squirrel or some other rodent. about 12-14" running across. Abandoned buildings tend to become home to little critters .

    You wanna see a ghost? It isn't alive but you can see it, even if it is not physically there. It is a remarkable trick of our mirror neural network (mind) to see a green dot in an *empty space*. Just stare at the little black cross in the middle. If you view it from an angle (turning your head a little), you may even see an entire circle of non-existent green dots beside the lilac dots, or the lilac dots may disappear altogether and you only see a green dot runnining around. Remarkable!

    No..squirrels don't stand up when they run. But hey, if you imagine it maybe that's what you see, right?

    As far as the afterimage effect, that's well known. You can look at the sun for a few seconds and see a purple blob afterwards for like 3 minutes. It's not a ghost, and it has nothing to do with that phenomenon.

    Wrong, I have squirrels in my back yard and they stand up constantly, especially when someone is observing them. And your assertion that we want to see a green dot is nonsense. You cannot escape the effect, no matter how hard you try (and I have tested that myself); it is how the MNN functions.
    And have burnt out a few optical neurons in the process. But you missed the point of that demonstration. The point is that under certain circumstances, we can and do see non-existent things, also known as ghosts (or ghosting).

    You seem very sure that *real* ghosts have a different cause, can you explain why the optical phenomenon of *seeing* ghosts has nothing to do with *seeing* green ghosts in an empty space which was previously occupied by a *lilac* dot? I can. But an answer of "that's well known" proves the point, rather than falsify it.

    Nice try..I said: "Squirrels don't stand up when they run." And they don't. And I'm not the one pushing the lie that we see what we want to believe. That was you.

    It's an optical effect from looking at a certain color or light. It has nothing to do with people seeing apparitions or video of darting forms in abandoned sanitorium hallways.

    LOL! Because there is no afterimage from staring at some other bright image when people see ghosts. It isn't a residual effect of the retinae retaining images immediately after seeing them. It has nothing to do with that.

    Here's more video evidence from Waverly Hills Sanitorium:

    Really? Explain why there is always a *narrow beam* flashlight involved in total darkness, instead of a flood light or a flash photograph, which would light the entire area and render a sharp picture.
    No, it's the reverse, the observer is in toal darkness and brightl narrow beam flashlight lights small areas in this darkness. The effect is the same. That's why ghosts always appear as *white*.
    Except in the demonstration the retina does not retain the image of the *lilac* dot, the image generated by the MNN is a *green* dot. You need to do some more reading how the brain (MNN) processes information.

    Unquote your post so I can respond to it. You know how to do that don't you?

    Not enough for the afterimage. Especially in total darkness.

    LOL! If it was an afterimage it would look like the narrow beam of a flashlight. Ghosts don't look like that. They appear on camera and to the naked eye as human figures.

    The green dot is the afterimage from seeing the lilac dot. You evidently don't even understand your own example.

    Yeah, I posted it before previewing it. I had something more important to take care of.
    But ad hominem remarks do not answer my question. As usual you have managed to evade answering. Fact is , you have no clue if or why ghost appear to some but not to all.

    It's certainly not an afterimage on the retinae of a brighter image, that's for sure.
