I totally agree here -- which is a shame, because they are really pretty. It's not often you see a "game" that's pretty.

Masterpiece was a pretty game, but that involved selling art...

Anyhow -- I digress -- when I was younger the movie The Exorcist came out and my MYF (Methodist Youth Fellowship) minister talked to us about it he said quite emphatically if you don't mess with something problems won't come knocking on your door.

It's quite true for a number of things.

I figure there must be a different sense of time so no night/day...

...having said that, I'd be pulling some really good practical jokes.

During the day they usually stay in their above-earth dimension (antariksha, also called bhutaloka) and during the night they descend to earth (some are present on earth permanently) and appear in places where they died or to which they're emotionally attached. They are very active during sandhyas (conjunctions of day and night) as well as during midday and midnight. According to Garuda Purana 2.49.11 they can enter (so-called possession) non-living objects, insects, birds, animals, people and devas. In some cases within days after death they temporarily possess a wild animal, a bird or an insect (e.g. a butterfly). In this form they appear to their family members to say goodbye. This however doesn't mean they have peacefully left, rather the opposite.
Often they attach themselves to the subtle body of an incarnated being and live off his energy (prana) as parasites. They feed on impure substances (all kinds of garbage). They suffer because without physical body they can't fully satisfy their desires like hunger, thirst or sex desire. This pertains especially to persons addicted to intoxocants who need a host with whom thus appears or increases existing addiction. They wait until their karma-set time expires and they will be able to incarnate again.

Yeah, well the earth is a sphere (well, close enough), so it's always nighttime somewhere.

I sure would like to see some documented evidence from a credible source as to what you stated in this posting above.

The people who passed on hundreds of years ago? Undoubtedly, they've reincarnated by now. In-between lives, it's said they're occupied with a number of things: looking after their loved ones still living (being guardian angels); going through spiritual training to advance their maturity; helping "process" people through, after mass disasters (think: earthquakes and tsunamis, genocide and war, 9/11, etc.), and hanging out & blissing out.

I don't know any ghosts so I don't know. I have no strong feelings about this. I talk to my mom sometimes but she doesn't give me any answers. Oh, how I'd love to sit across from her and chat. She left us in 2000.

Probably just sit around and swap ghost stories! Waiting for you to come home so they have someone to play with.
