That's one of the points I was making to Dave, referring to the emotional state. But why does this happen? I kind of get what you mean when you talk about the "limestone theory." We've had similar haunting events occur while conducting many investigations into Morely Music Hall, it's made from Bedford Limestone, but with the evidence that we collected it was more of a intelligent haunting than residual and we had even taken EMF readings inside near the base of the building and outside beside the limestone completely around...we have yet to pick up any energy spikes from the limestone. I agree that we have picked up many EVP mentioning "old fashioned" names...such as Johna and William, ect., but that's as close as a residual haunting that has ever occured on any investigation that we have conducted. But what gets me is why would anyone want to come back a relive such a tragic event over and over again....not unless they don't know they're dead? and how would one intervene when it's not in anyway close to having an intelligent haunting effect? If the deceased cannot interact or have any means of a communication method then how can we as the living contact them or help? Just some more food for thought...Julie
Maybe they Just don't have a choice. I read a story in one of my Real ghost's books, about this woman who would see the same thing at the same time every year. She would see a man walk past her kitchen window, around to the back of her house, and disappear into a field behind her house. She did some research, and found that there was once a small lake(or pond, I don't remember which one) where the field was. Also she found out a man committed suicide in that lake by drowning him self about 40 years earlier, on the same day she seen him every year.
Maybe when some commits murder or suicide, they have to relive it with no notion of anything else but that. As a form of punishment from their creator or whatever for committing those horrible acts. As for us not being able to communicate or not being able to help them. I think maybe we are just not supposed to., Maybe it's just out of our hands.
LOL, It makes so much more sense in my head, I am no good at explaining this kind of stuff via typing.
Just my theories, I hope they make at least a little sense.
