Ghost stories

Ghosts are a controversial topic. People believing in ghosts are seen as nutty or even delusional. But there may be more to ghosts than science can explain. In the Summer of 2014 a couple asked Fox43, a regional news channel in the United States, to visit their haunted house in Hanover, York County.

When they were at the house photographer Nick Petrillo received a scratch in the home that he couldn’t explain. He had to admit that the ghostlike phenomena at least felt as if they were real. There are countless testimonies of similar encounters.

It appears that the laws of physics don’t always apply. That is possible if this universe is a virtual reality created by an advanced civilisation. In that case the evidence for ghosts can exist. In a similar vein reincarnation stories indicate that memories can be transferred to another person. So perhaps we are just as real as ghosts.
