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.
Whose to say physical space is limited on the 'other side'?


I have a feeling its not the same as it is, on this plane of existence.

This is what I've been trying to figure out. Who actually shows up, when one crosses over? Do the troublesome relatives show up along with the beloved ones? More research needed.

I dont think it will be like that on 'the other side'...our concerns and feelings we had when we are alive, will not apply anymore. Its difficult to even speculate about, because it will be SO MUCH different...


So, if I had an uncle that molested me when I was a kid...when I die and am reunited with all my family (including him), the negative feelings/emotions and hatred I had for him when I was alive, will not exist anymore...he will not be the same person either.

These items are often stored in attics and basements if they are not used in the main house.

That sounds logical, yes!

To say that seeing our loved ones again after death will have a different personality or at least nothing from the living life will be in our minds anymore in an interesting theory.

The rational: These places are often infrequently accessed and having lower lighting. Additionally, the space may have been relegated to storage, as too many families shamelessly allow to happen. These are ideal conditions for seeing things to misinterpret, and to hear the sounds of shifting items/structures in a space which is assumed no occupants are currently transiting through.

The irrational: Attics are peaked roof structures with few or no openings to the outside, fostering the accumulation of *energy. The objects, particularly antiques, occupying this space are often bunched together, exacerbating the accumulation and interaction of this *energy.
(* according to [informal] ghost theory)

Why Are Attics & Basements Often the Haunted Parts of the House? (ghost, activity)

Attics I don't know about, but basements are underground so perhaps the soil and stones around them have "soaked up" impressions of people and events that occurred in the area in the past and are "playing them back" as ghosts etc like a recording tape?
The fictional film "The Stone Tape" explored the theme, here's a clip of a ghost putting in an appearance in an old country house whose foundations go back to anglo-saxon times, it's not a basement but the old stone walls have "recorded" a terrified Victorian housemaid and are now "playing back" the event-

Probably because people tend to spend less time in those areas, they may be less well-lit, and they may have more of a "creepy" atmosphere. As a consequence, people's imaginations are probably more active than in the more used parts of the house.
