The Thought Bunker #2 Answered

Hello!

I am hosting a Forum Topic train. This one involves some thinking. But it's not math! It's the fun thinking. The kind you can talk and laugh about. So, what do you say?

This week's Thought Bunker:

If ghosts go through walls, why don’t they fall through the floor?

I think it's because they can choose to. Kinda like how we can choose to follow the rules or not.............

Well, what do you think? Tell us!

This weeks best thought:

Not that they exist, but my favourite hypothesis was that it was force of habit - they walk through walls that weren't there when they died, at the level the floor was at when they died.

There are several stories in the UK of ghost Roman patrols walking down roads knee-deep in tarmac, stepping on the original road-surface.

they can go through walls, and the ground, they just choose not to.

"Earth lights"? Yes maybe. It's an area under investigation (although I couldn't point anywhere without looking)

IIRC, the main hypothesis is minerals under stress, much like the piezoelectric crystals in lighters.

Some crystals do emit flashes of light when placed under immense (destructive) pressure.

I'm familiar with the theory, it's interesting stuff w/ref unexplained phenomena.

If they were real, I would assume it's because they can fly. They would just choose to stay above floors because that's what they would be used to.

I think it's because they're fictional, and as fictional beings they can "do" things as we imagine convenient for telling a story, or scaring someone.
