Time Space and Ghosts

You're looking at a dying star with gamma rays exploding out of either side of the orbit of space dust it's creating. I'd like to bring you into a dimension of thought, and if you just allow your learned behaviors to stay still, open yourself to ideas and science, we can enjoy this I promise!



If you know me, you know my fixation on astronomy and the space-time continuum. Time and space, one can't exist without the other, can it. Time was actually born when space was, which would've been about the instant of the Big Bang. It was so cataclysmic you can still detect its back-round radiation from 14.6 billion years ago. It made no noise when it happened in the vacuum of newly-born space, so it would've made no noise. But astronomers can detect this explosion remnant all the time at, say, Mount Palomar, where we have a telescope trained on outerspace listening for any odd or never-before heard sounds, recording graphs of radiated areas, the search for other intelligent, sentient beings out there. True all true. That's the science.

Let's say you live in 1800, and you're mad at your husband. Suddenly you slam home a knife to his back say, and he dies, and you keep him in the basement and live to a ripe old age just walking the floors. That was back in the 17th century.

Now it's the 21st century, 2008, and your house is still standing. I enter that house, it looks very different it's been repaired repainted redone restored. I'm standing in a spot in a room and suddenly I see a grayish female shape in odd clothing gliding past the room and straight into the wall, disappearing right through it before my eyes. I'm not drunk or insane, and I know what I saw. So what just happened here?

In the dimension of time, the murder took place in the past. My seeing a "ghost" was in the present. The ghostly figure turns out to look like a sketch of someone who lived in that house in 1800 in fact it looks like you. How did I see your ghostly image? WHY would your image appear, what's the purpose? What is happening in time, and in the space it occupies?

More science says that perhaps everything we do and say leaves an imprint, a mark, on time, which remains as long as time does. You could, perhaps, walk across the Arizona Plains and suddenly see a ghostly rider on a horse which looks like an Apache Indian from a former time. It's the same principal, I think you're seeing the actual imprint of someone who existed in that place, in time, and nothing can erase it, no power can eradicate time - elsewise we'd all disappear. Our atoms would become unbounded, our molecular bodies would just come apart and drift in ... space? Can't be space, not without time. That's another argument - so back to your ghost of 1800.

That was your imprint I saw, walking through a wall which wasn't there when you were alive, living in that house walking the floors moaning about your dead husband in the basement.

Could a traumatic incident cause a greater imprint on time than an ordinary one? I believe so, in fact the greater the tragedy the better chance of seeing its footprint on time. Not only that, I believe time itself dictates what we see, and perhaps the longer spaces of time between "then and now" the less chance of seeing that spirit. Think about it: no one ever sees the "ghost" of King David of the Bible or Queen Cleopatra or Alexander the Great or Nero or Mozart or...Call it "ghost" if it feels right.

Anyway, you killed your husband, he died and you never r
ested afterward, your conscience or psyche or whatever thought process you used forbade you from ignoring what you did, so you walked the floors all your life, and since the dead don't exist in the same time dimension we do (else we'd see them everywhere) then I was able to see you, as you were, your footprint, your mark, left on the fabric of time. You would be called "a restless soul" by some charlatan who thinks ghosts are actual people in real bodies of smoke trying to either hurt or help us. Living in the TV or something. Geesch.

Yes, I understand channeling and some do have abilities others don't, I agree. But all they're doing is using part of the brain we're not. So much of the brain goes unused, I wrote alot about that - maybe I'll bore you to tears and repeat it lol. But think:

Why wouldn't everything we do leave it's mark on the fabric of time?

Therefore, why wouldn't someone in a future time be able to see that imprint, from the past?

It's the basis for why someone in a time-travel machine can't go into the future, only the past. Everything we know about the space time continuum says the future did not happen yet. So it's impossible to experience it.

But we can experience what already happened, and my explanation of why people see these images is contained in that theory. Energy cannot be destroyed, only mutated. We are leaving our energy in some form of imprinting right now, on time's fabric, in space, a certain space - for me right now it's this one.

Perhaps 300 years from now this area I'm using will be a park and someone looking at flowers will suddenly see an image of a rather odd looking lady banging away at a keyboard, sipping hot cocoa.

Do you dare say it's not possible?

Very interesting entry. I love reading about time and space and am facinated by it :o)

The first thing I remember wanting to be in grade school was an astronomer, followed by an archaeologist. I became neither, but maintain an interest in both.

I've never seen a ghost, but I've always felt that what people perceive as ghosts are the results of strong emotions imprinted upon a place. We still know so little about the power of the mind and its ability to produce physical manifestations, so I definitely believe that is possible.

Cool entry!

Not only dare I not, but I am in tune with spirits. My 101 year old aunt was/is as well. You are correct "ghosts" are not like TV depictions. I have been approached by spirits for help, a child, and it led my aunt and I on an unbelievable adventure. The family says when my aunt dies her "power," as we call it, will pass on to me. I am not really up fo this; but fate et al. I have seen dead people in form. Can't explain it. I just accept since I've lived with aunt and, well, me, all my life. Nothing unusual to me; but I can't explain it and don't try---though I ponder it.

Diane J Standiford said...

Oh, and I do believe in the "imprint," we leave. Of that I have no doubt.

Joann said...

I've seen a ghost briefly, and I heard a ghost... and STILL I have a very hard time believing in them. I believe that the presence we feel of loved ones past are for our own comfort, made from our minds. As for the presence of strangers, I don't know. I'm just very skeptical (and confused).

TO JOANN, my friend I say keep your skepticism, you'll be all the more amazed when you see someone unexplainable. I think you saw and heard what someone left on the fabric of time, and truly, as Diane J puts it so well, we can expect help or comfort from loved ones lost to us in the world, because we BELIEVE we can, and faith is once again a power unlike any other. So in your caution, keep your faith.

I liked this entry ... but I wonder about 'the future' as it didn't happen yet, but I feel that I have recieved 'urgings' about what I should do NOW.

In fact, my current situation, is born out of things that were 'sent' to me from a future that I couldn't even shape or frame. When I would 'go' to certain places, I was struck by how it felt familiar, though I never had been there before. What I did get, was a feeling of 'being where I am supposed to be', and I have long since stopped trying to explain it to people.

Way cool entry!

Going back into time in my perspective is impossible. Time is the only constant, it progresses inexorably and will not turn back. Only in a 4th dimension will this be possible, time being that 4th dimension. Molecules behave in a fashion called entropy, basically organised chaos and react on chance encounters. Oh, Cathy, you've opened a huge can of worms here lol

Ally Lifewithally said...

That is facinating ~ I really enjoyed reading this ~ everyone leaves a footprint ~ Ally x

Joan said...

Really enjoyed your entry alway had an interest in space just like my Dad. love Joan

MISSY said...

Very interesting theory. I've actually never heard it before.

You really make us think Cathy and wonder..

I'd like to read your prior entry on humans using only part of their brains. Can you send me the link? Thanks. *M*

Malagutigrrl said...

I never thought about not being able to time travel to the future because it hasn't happened yet before. I just worry that going back will change things and therefore you could never come back to the same present that you left.
How do you feel about Aliens?

natalie said...

hi Cathy! good to see you!:0
a well crafted expose of many things..I seem tot think that Guido talked about whether time existed or not. I think our experience carries over and make a mark; I just don't call that time.
Ghosts ahh!:)
Experience of God, of ghosts and of paranormal things varies to the degree that we ourselves have experienced them! Spirited entry! thanks!

Interesting ideas on space and time. I have often wondered though about dreams that foretell the future, as I have had a number of them, and I know others have, too. But I think animals have this instinct at times about what lies around the corner. But I am very fascinated with people who try to study the ways time and space impact our lives and come up with unusual insights. I love to watch scientists on cable that deal with the stars, quantum mechanics, anything mysterious that I don't understand as well as they do. Gerry
