We’re always on the lookout for good ghost footage, but just as with UFOs we often find ourselves against a brick wall of only certain obscure footage actually looking genuine while some of the footage that reaches the mainstream looks faked or simply unreal. But then every now and again a piece of footage comes out that seems to once and for all beg us to keep searching for the final proof that ghosts really are among us. But where is the final proof in al the dozens of ghost hunting shows and with thousands of ghost hunting groups all over the world constantly rolling film?
When we look at theories behind ghosts, we often divide those theories with others about other paranormal phenomena such as UFOs and Bigfoot rather than considering the possibility that they may all be somehow connected to one another. The idea of ghosts as entities which reflect light and can be seen as a result of very real interactions with their environment is by no means new or novel. But what if they were both real and yet entirely incorporeal and invisible? And what if they didn’t live in the collective space we all share, but rather in our collective consciousness as a sort of thought virus or consciousness living within hundreds of different minds?
It seems logical that the most powerful ghosts would also be some of the most well known or occupy a large portion of the minds of those regularly interacting with them. But what if these entities didn’t start off as actual people who later died and then became ghosts? What if any entity which people believed in collectively and then looked at could be observed in some capacity? How would this be possible?
We like to think that when we think of things it’s because we’ve either observed them or spontaneously thought them up. But what if our thinking about them actually gave them some sort of life? What if the reason so many people have seen Bigfoot wasn’t because it was simply an entity out living in the woods, but it was the manifestation of an actual thoughts giving it life? By this logic, then the idea of ancient mythology is almost terrifying. And what’s to be said about Hell? Does such a place exist on some other dimensional plane simply because enough minds on this one have invested heavily into it? Logic would follow both good and bad things could be put into existence on this level by simply giving conscious space to it.
It may sound preposterous, but consider how computers work. When the idea of computing first came about it was all one central brick where the processing took place. Messages could only be exchanged between the physical components themselves. Then the Internet came about and a whole new space suddenly existed not bound to any single machine, but rather scattered throughout the world on servers and links between computers. Then cloud computing came about and challenged our notion of what precisely a computer did. Could our minds serve as a sort of cloud-brain for entities to live in – connected by some unseen psychic ether? It may sound far fetched – as far fetched as the Internet would have before it existed. And we all know how that changed the world.
