    Have to note that I am glad that you guys have experienced such things, and not me! :eek:

    I also have to wonder if one's level of 'acceptance' of the possibility of such things, or their belief that such is possible, has any bearing upon the potential to experience such things?

    I consider myself a logician and a pragmatist, and I have never really had any belief, whatever, in ghosts. I don't believe that spirits actually have the ability, wherewithal, or desire to 'pierce' the veil, either, because I am certain that if they did, those whom I have lost would have done so.
    I have watched John Edward, and other 'mediums'---- in fact, I read each of his books---- and been very curious how each of these people make what they do seem so very realistic.....and would like to even think that I kept an open-mind to be able to accept the possibility. But, in the end, I just can't buy into it!

    I hear adrenaline can convert into a substance very similar to LSD, can't remember on which program I saw this, but apparently if your scared enough you can see and hear things that aren't there.

    Your such a nut sometimes fossil. o_O Ahh, but that's why we love ya. :) But you do make a good point, it could very well be that those that don't believe in any of it are not as perceptive to it. To be honest, I'm not so sure that I believe in ghosts per say, but I do believe in evil and possibly demons. I believe in god and the bible so therefore I cannot deny the existence of evil or demons either.

    I think that you make a very good point also burty. The mind is very powerful and can do some pretty whacky shit sometimes if you let it. This could very well be what causes the majority of the so called sightings or experiences. However, I don't think that my mind tossed the pan full of bath toys 3 feet away and into the tub, but maybe. ;)

    Ok, so I've mentioned my Ghost cat on the bed.

    I'm in bed with the Mrs as she going to sleep. I'm surfing the Core, she wakes up. She says I felt a cat jump up on the bed and walk up. But there was no cat, I was awake! I said you expected a cat didn't you?, "YES", but there wasn't, or was there??? This just happened, no BS.

    When very young, frequently saw a tall figure standing at the end of my bed. Used to terrify me. Felt presences and heard things from time to time. It lessened with age. I read somewhere that children and old people are much more sensitive to spiritual things because they're closer to death - children having come recently from the ether and old people soon to return to it.

    That said, when I was ill and quite weak for a few years I often felt a sinister presence in the house at night and frequently saw a swirling black entity at the bottom of the stairs and by my bed when I woke in the middle of the night. I'd have these nightmares where some malevolent force was pursuing me, would wake up drenched in sweat and the black swirling thing would be in the room near my bed. I have a friend who undertook shamanic training, and I bought a dream catcher from her and hung it in my room. The nightmares stopped immediately, but the presence was still around often enough. Later on, by chance I came across stories online about a phenomenon know as "shadow people", and the descriptions and accounts were eerily similar to what I had seen and felt. They're a part of Native American folklore, but even they don't know for sure what they are. My avatar is a mock representation of one I found on line.

    Personally I think there's all kinds of energies, forces and creatures out there at the edge of what we can directly perceive, and beyond it. I believe Terence McKenna's "psychonaut" accounts to be credible, and similar to one of my experiences with LSD.

    I think my cat is not at rest is because I accidentally caused his premature death. He had a habit of going thru the garbage and picking out leftovers and making a mess all over the kitchen floor. One day I caught him at it with leftover buffalo wings. I gave him a kick in the belly out of anger, just an impulse without thinking. I didn't notice over the next few months that he wasn't around me much and that he was loosing a lot of weight. By the time I noticed it was to late and I had to put him down. As he died at the vet I told him how sorry I was. On the way home I had to pull over, I balled my eyes out, tearing up now. I hadn't cried like that since the doc told us that my new born son might die do to a 1 in 60,000 birth defect. He's ok, thank God , minor case, but we didn't know that till got him to a specialist. Scared us to death.
