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 rested 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?
