    I agree, I just don't care about that as much when I'm hearing someone's story. Like for example in my above story, I'm pretty sure my stepmom just has sleep paralysis. But that doesn't make seeing that any less scary or fun to hear about.

    I remember circa 40 years ago when and friend and I visited an abandoned foundry steelwork in the evening, because the access was stricly forbidden... This would have been the suitable music :

    Raymond Devos, who I consider the greatest French humorist :

    "Dieu existe, mais c'est une vue de l'esprit."

    God exists, but it is a view of the spirit.

    :D

    One had a bass player audition that claimed to see em all the time.
    Didn't hire him. He was pretty good too.

    You want your drummer to believe in ghost notes.

    I see my father in my mirror every morning, but he’s still alive, so I don’t know how it could be a ghost...it may be that I’m getting older.

    It was a pretty good show, but I don’t know if I’d base my whole belief system on it.

    i try to be the most rational, objective and science - observing person that i can be. so it brings me no pleasure in admitting to prior life experiences with ghosts.

    but i do believe ghosts are real. i've lived in 2 places that were haunted. or, at least, haunted enough that i noticed things.

    the most frightening encounters were:

    1.) waking up to my bed shaking and a set of disassembled kick and tom drums playing themselves. and i don't mean like subtle bed vibrations. we're talking "bed vertically leaving the floor."
    2.) feeling as though i was being followed. this went on for 2 or 3 days. i should add that i lived alone at this place. anyway, it culminated with an "entity" tapping me on the shoulder. it felt just as real as if a living human being had done it. i turned around, and, of course, nothing was there. that was more unsettling than the first incident.

    in retrospect, i would like to know what the motivations of that ghost were. and while i am not a very religious person, i would hesitate to try to instigate communication with the undead. i think that could be a bottle of soda you might not necessarily put the cap back on, once you decide to open it.

    Tune to a TV channel with no signal. Some of the static is from The Big Bang, and you can see it.

    Please be aware that auditory hallucinations sometimes accompanied by a feeling of dread could be the sign of a gas leak.

    Even though I don't believe in ghosts/spirits/angels/demons, I should note that my kids have claimed to have seen ghosts. My older step daughter claimed one of the houses I lived in was haunted. My son confirmed that he saw figures in that house. He wasn't scared, though, and he wasn't sure if what he saw was a dream or real. Keep in mind he was probably 7 or 8 when that happened.

    Myself, I have had situations where I had that feeling, but I have never seen anything strange or out of place. I attribute to that sense that something doesn't feel quite right, and you get that "fight or flight" reaction.
