The Technological Possibilities of Ghosts

Have you ever wondered if ghosts are just imagery in the same sense that you see film cells when the projector starts skipping or is slowed down, or the way the monitor flickers when it's going out?

This is not an original thought; I'd actually been thinking about something similar (because I was having monitor issues) when I saw a meme in a ghost-hunting group positing much the same question and I returned to the idea of veridical imagery - the concept that some things are simply somehow "recorded" in time and set to playback on certain anniversaries, when somehow triggered by events in this reality, or simply at random.

It may suggest multiple realities or dimensions but, if true, we could be reflections in some version of veridical imagery ourselves, even as we're alive! Perhaps something that happened in our lives was emotional or spiritual enough in nature to have made it off the cutting-room floor and is playing in perpetuity even as we discuss it?

This could explain all manner of things, from Green Children to The Lost City of Alaska, and could be electromagnetic in nature but it certainly doesn't have to be - there have been, and will continue to be, things that simply escape our knowledge and ability to comprehend. This could be one of those things but, with the advancement of technology clipping along at such a pace, knowing more about these things might be just around the corner.
