It seems conceivable that if ghosts are the soul or spirit of a deceased person stuck in this realm, or between realms of existence, then they would have no better understanding of their purpose then most of the living. If the soul remains because it has some sort of unfinished business, or because the death was so abrupt and traumatic that it is not aware that the body has died, it is entirely likely that it either doesn't know anything is amiss. Or that if it does, it doesn't know how to fix it. So what does it do? It tries to communicate, to seek help, and of course it scares the frak out of us because it's strange and new, and we don't understand it. Seems like a potential possibility, but not the only one.
Yes, finally Paul Kimball is back! i've been looking forward to this since I was spamming about the last episode in my thread last year
I'm sad its not about UFO's though, your rants on that subject were not only really true, but also really made me laugh.
Ouija boards are indeed dangerous implements. I have several anecdotal accounts of horrifying after effects stemming from the use of these boards, from friends and seances that i had been involved.And now, on a show-related note...

Most flattering... if only you were Natalie Portman!
Sorry do dissapoint lol... you can't complain anyway, you get to work with Holly every day!
Seriously though, when growing up and thinking about ghosts, I have always held a similar idea to the time travelers one proposed on your website. IF there really are ghosts, then i think its quite a good explanation.
At first this potentialy posed a problem when some people said they had interacted with ghosts, but perhaps the ghostly person from another time can also see you, and you are appearing as a ghost to them.
Where the argument does potentially fall apart is that we only seem to see ghostly humans, whereas you would presume if we were seeing back in time then we might see a ghostly car once in a while, or a ghostly house, plane, dog, mammoth etc
Also, we never see any futuristic ghosts so does the phenomena only work backwards, or does the world actually end in 2012 so there is no future (lol)
We dont know and we wont ever know. The filter we call a brain is too fine... nothing is getting through aside from the basics
