If they're some sort of after-image (or after-memory?) of a past event, maybe most of them fade away after a few centuries.

The only thing I can think of is that those parts of the house generally don't have much human activity. People just store their unused stuff in those places, so ghosts like to be there where it's quiet, dark, etc.

Also, I know on the paranormal shows, it's those places of a house where people tend to do supernatural rituals, so I guess any energy from that stays there.
This is an easy one.

The human mind contains the "imagination." It is here that one can be controlled thru fear. Just think: COVID...

If they are once living people...that possibly means we all end up in this state after we die.
not necessarily. the spirits that are still here have not crossed over to the light. whenever I run into any I do my best to direct them. as far as I know I did move someone from a home I purchased many years ago. i told them there was nothing here for them and they should go into the light to be with the Lord. i said I didn't know it personally but I've heard it is beautiful.

the remaining twelve years that i spent there was just me, my husband, our two children and our cat.

my mother also moved a spirit she had living with her for a number of years. no candles or incense or crosses. it just takes a simple conversation.

Questions:
Does that mean "the light" can be difficult for some to locate or find?
What exactly is "the light"?
How do you know there is a "light" to cross over?
How do you cross over... light?

ALL my thoughts exactly! This, to me is LOGICAL thinking/reasoning of why attics & basements seem to be more (NOT the only) haunted locations of a home:

Basements are hidden, dark and underground. Many associate the underground, with the underworld - and hell. Elemental spirits of water and earth can naturally find basements to be comfortable places to traverse. Do you want Salamanders, Ondines and Gnomes to share your home?

Practically speaking, basements offer perfect places for people with evil intent to break in, hide, and await your return home. While many people today have security systems or glass block windows to make it more difficult to enter, many others do not.

Both attics and basements are out of the way of the heart of the home. They are hidden and often dark. These are traits we associate with hauntings.

While basements have been used as graves and places of torture and murder, attics, closer to the element of air, are frequently the sights of suicides.

Particularly suicide by hanging or defenistration. Both deaths relate to the air element.

Fires often break out in both places. Or are set. There are incidents of the elderly, the disabled and the young being kept in both attics and basements.

Attics were places where mistreated orphans, servants and step children were confined, in literature, legend and lifem have been confined.

I have not heard of air or fire elementals haunting attics, however, I don't know more than a fraction of what in under the sun. I am sure such hauntings have happened.

Lightening is also more likely to strike in the attic.

Now see, the reply you said to your friend that I bolded would be nonsense to me too. But hey, if there's proof out there that just talking out loud about something happening is like an invitation, then I'll be more inclined to believe it.

staying at a friend's cottage (16 bedrooms and 22 baths) the night before her wedding, she showed me to my room and said, "don't worry, nothing ever happens in here". at that moment i hushed her, telling her a statement like that was an invitation...

No-one has mentioned that energy can be attached to old antiques and other 'stuff' which has been bought from garage sales or passed down in the family. Old Auntie may have had a favourite rocking chair which is in the attic so she may be still rocking. spooky dolls, rocking horses waiting for grandkids to be born, that kind of thing. These items are often stored in attics and basements if they are not used in the main house.

i don't believe the light is difficult to find. i just feel some may be hesitant to approach. i have heard many simply do not believe they are of this life.
the "light" is just that. a bright light. crossing over is just a matter of approaching. The Christ is waiting there, along with our already deceased friends and (like it or not) relatives.
i actually have trouble with the idea of meeting some family again. there are some I do not wish to reunite with ever again.

the fact that my friend mentioned that spirits have never been found to enter a certain space was an "invitation" and served as enough proof to me. again, they've got nothing better to do than (maybe) travel the world and mess with people for fun. at least, that's what i'd do.

That is exactly what 'UFOs' appear to be doing as well...I just wonder if there is a connection between the two?

If everyone moved into this state after they died, then I believe there would be no room to move without encountering a spirit. Imagine how many people have lived since humans were on this Earth. If they were all hanging around, => no room to move at all.

You will all just have to find out for yourself when the time comes, or else develop some beliefs of your own, 'cos you're not having mine. :-)

Actually, you do already have beliefs and they are a belief in science, needing proof, and not allowing yourself to believe anything without proof. That is a hard road to follow, because at our current state of development, we dont have any answers for you. Still...your choice.
