Hello @gijoge,

Thanks for sharing this post. I learned something about peripheral vision, audio paredolia, EMF sensitivity and sleep paralysis and mirror neurons to explain to ghosts. I see that behind these phenomena of the mind, there is the effect of the behavior of matter in the form of a wave, pure vibration.
