Yes they are. We are more likely to notice them at night. And I think they are more active at night.

What we call "ghosts" are a collection of disparate phenomena. What they do in the day would differ as to the type of phenomena that is in question.

As soon as I figure out how to attach it, you can see for yourself.
Please attach, asap.

Not every one who has passed is a "ghost."

I think that the vast majority of hauntings are residual -- as in something of importance happened at that site at some time and has imprinted itself on the area. And so it shall replay like a video from time to time.

Supposedly, the train that carried Abraham Lincoln's body appears annually. Now -- a train has no soul. But imagine our country at the time. We had just ended a bloody horrible war that nearly tore apart our country, 625,0000 men dead, almost a half a million more wounded and maimed -- and thanks to John Wilkes Booth, we were plunged into a deep mourning again. Because ending the war didn't really end the hostilities and emotions.

But mourners who were mourning much more than a presidential assassination now had a focus, and that train passed through all that sorrow and emotion -- both sorrow and negative energy of the people who thought it was good he was dead.... that the train ride was imprinted in the areas where it shows up every year.

You can't act with it, you can't ask it questions and get answers. Don't get me started on EVP's -- most of them aren't anything, the rest are residual...

I think it's rare you get an active haunting with a spirit that can interact.

I guess ghosts are just harder to see in broad daylight?

I would just like to notify the comedian wannabes on this forum that 'Unexplained . . . ' is a forum for believers. Scoffers are not welcomed here. There are religious threads from which atheist posts are deleted. The same will happen here. We are not here for your entertainment purposes. If you have nothing to contribute, kindly leave.

I agree that a majority are residual hauntings. Not all, but many. It is the most common type of haunting. And I agree that attempted interaction with what is essentially a video tape, will yield nothing.

However, non-human discarnate spirits, who are hungry for human interaction and may be in search of a dwelling place, may be interested in "playing pretend" - that's why people need to be careful.

And stay away from the Ouija board!!!!
