Souls, ghosts and existence

Been thinking about this for a couple of days now.

If we assume that the popular view of ghosts is correct, ie that you get ghosts of children, men, women and elderly people, then this would imply that your ghost resembles your age at death. In fact, it inextricably links your spirit to your physical body, as it would appear that memories and mental ability is also related to your age at death.

Now, if your ghost is your spirit is it also your soul? Again, I would suggest that the popular view is that it is - hence "lost souls" etc.

So do this mean that souls do not age outside of a body? If so, how does this affect our ideas of heaven/hell/reincarnation/afterlife in general?

For one thing it would suck to die of old age.

Pensioning your way across the galaxy for the rest of eternity on your spiritual zimmer frame isn't my idea of a good time.

Well souls are a product of monotheistic religion, while ghosts are from some mysticism/spititualism thingy. Souls and ghosts are from different belief systems, so it is unsurprising that they contradict each other, and are mutually incompatible.

The devoutly religious would be first to deny ghosts, while 'mystical' people would probably happily deny christianity's version of heaven/hell.

physical appearance of a ghost/spirit is probably a force of habit, nuffin more. Everyone carries around a 'self image', so once you've got nowt to enforce the physical bounderies its conviceable that the habit would take over.

As for what ghosts/spirits do, while they might not age as we understand it I have it on good authority that they do some sort of 'evolving', as to what that involves I dont know.

heh, yeah
the short story; I know someone who 'talks' to a dead german actor, she disturbed 'im once and he complained coz he was busy doing his 'evolving'.

I've known this person for some time and I've got no reason to doubt she isnt talking to 'im thus to me at least, its good authority

That's how it was, kissing honey lips.
