LIFE wrote:If M-theory and its implications would turn out to be established fact, the closest thing I could imagine what ghosts could be were entities that probably live in other dimensions and somehow are temporarily visible to some in our "domain". That's a big if though and entirely speculative, I wouldn't for a second try to claim its validity.


On the Dickie Dawkins forum I proposed a similar suggestion in order to try and explain alleged sightings of UFO's (I think that people laughed at me!!). Funnily enough my oldest son and I were having a chat on the way to school this morning about ghosts and I mentioned M-theory....he wasn't convinced!!

I think that ghostly sightings are a psychological phenomena rather than a paranormal one. I'd be very interested to read a formal debate on the subject.
