Assuming someone has seen a ghost in the day or in the night... was it naked?

If we accept that human beings have a spirit, then where did the clothing get a spirit?

Ergo... a real ghost would be naked.

Thats assuming a ghost is some form of physical energy floating around in the environment that is a "carbon copy" of a human body, which not a very logical assumption.

I don't think anyone sees a ghost physically in the environment with their normal senses.

I think it's information received and translated/interpreted by the brain directly and put into our mind's model of our perception. As it turns out, EVERYTHING is "in our heads"... because of our physiology we don't objectively view or experience anything in the first place.

So in other words, a ghost is technically a hallucination... albeit still with a unknown/supernatural source because the evidence shows multiple people regularly see basically the same ghost(s) over time and often even at the same time.

LOL....seriously--LOL!!!!

Spirits are able to appear to us in any form they choose; including the "clothing" they have on. They aren't bound by the same rules we are.
I've had my grandmother appear in a short white night gown.
My cousin appeared in a high necked,greenish/purple long night gown, etc...
One of my relatives had lost a leg due to diabetes but appeared to me with both legs intact.
just a few of the experiences I've had.

That's the only time people seem to associate ghosts with, but they could be around during the day as well.... If they exist.

I just thought I would throw that question out there, because most of the annoying ghostly things happen to me between 3-4am, usually starting around midnight or before, peaking at 3-4 then tapering off before 5am. Like it's the end of their shift or they have to get to their day job.

I have seen weird things during the day time like the time i was on my gazelle exerciser facing the living room. The kitchen is to the right..we have one of those big open floor plans I am not too fond of. One of my cats was on top of the entertainment center watching something invisible bouncing between the wall and her cat tower. I started watching her and looking where she was looking. The only way to describe it is: an invisible shape with a border around it. About the size of a football. Couldn't tell what it was, but it was interesting. This "invisible" thing jumped around for awhile, jumped onto the cat tower, did a few flips in the air, and flew towards the kitchen really fast and vanished.
My cat looked really bewildered about the whole thing and I felt the same way. We both resumed what we were doing before it happened. I finished my workout, and she lay down to nap.

Pink, I believe that if it doesn't feel threatening or scary to you, then it must be friendly, not the way modern society has portrayed them in movies....all crazy and sadistic like.

They're only butt naked if they want to be.

No -- ghosts are always around, but during the day the slight knocks and movements that happen can be so easily explained away. At night, things are quiet and people are sleeping, and all the things they do are more audible and noticeable -- if you're watching.

Interesting. I happen to agree that most activity - or more happens at night, and specifically at the hours you mentioned but you bring up a good point.

Your being on the exorcizer kept you in one place with one point of view for a protracted period of time. Even though you were moving, your vantage point remained constant.This enabled you to see things in a way that you ordinarily would not have.

Almost as though a video camera had been placed in one location. You noticed your cat, and subsequently; the invisible "thing."

Doing regular daytime things such as cleaning up the kitchen while chatting on the phone, getting dressed, getting your things together to leave the house, coming back into the house to put things away etc. we are constantly moving, and frequently, mufti-tasking, which leads to distraction.

Exercise gives us an almost zen like focus. It's not surprising that you were able to see that. ...whatever it was.
