ghosts

Postby D.O.P.R on Fri Apr 19, 2002 12:36 pm

An interesting subject in relation to 'Jack".
After a character dies, their 'soul' gets picked up by Jack. We also know, that if they concentrate hard enough they can come in contact with the physical world. Would these 'souls in transit' be concidered ghosts? If so, why are ghosts from the Civil War still on earth? Wouldn't Jack have sent them to judgement?

Making Jack chase them for more than a century? Whew. He's going to be pissed when he finally catches them.

Maybe it's because they were prior to his time? In our current time relation he has not been dead so long since we see him speaking at a mike quite clearly in the plane crash arc... The civil war happened way before he was even born so maybe it was the previous collector

I believe that places can "conduct" images much as how some metals conduct electricity. The actual souls are not there, but something very emotional happened there, and the area is recreating it as a form of discharging. A cloud builds up its own electricity, until rain causes it to discharge, so the land biulds up its own emotional charge, until a person's own feelings causes it to have a "discharge" of its own.

It's kind of weird to think that those ppl probably don't even know they're dead. Fighting wars which ended years ago.

Maybe it's a sort of punishment...or maybe (in the case of spirits who are more benevolent), it's a place they cared very much about and want to be sure that things are still "OK" there. If I explained why I think that, you wouldn't believe me.

Not to be a complete asshole, but clouds become charged by ionic particles in the air, and lightning occurs between two oppositly charged clouds, not because of rain.

Damn college education! Makes me learn things I could have gone my whole life without knowing.

Remember Hell has a different time to the mortal plane. In the Tet and Trixi arc we see a serial killer who "died years ago" but Jack has only been chasing him for 3 hours Hell time

I believe in gosts and such stuff, but I also think that only certain people can see or here them. Too me i feel these people are the lucky ones, unless they stumble apon some of the unfreindly ones, becuase I really would like to have an encounter.

Or between the ground and the cloud, or vice versa depending on charge.
