I have completely reversed my position on ghosts – and by extension the afterlife.
This small outburst of mine is inspired by watching an otherwise quite-good TV drama showing a female character calmly conversing with a recently deceased husband that only she (and us) can see. In time, it goes without saying that eventually the ghost will nod approvingly about a new relationship and be gone for good. Yes, just like that bit at the end of Return of the Jedi when Yoda, Obi Wan and Anakin all throw Fonz-like thumbs up gestures at Luke – all going “eyyyy!”.
Having said all that, I do know otherwise sensible people that will pay good money to see a stage show where Madame La Zongas de nos jours with hairdresser hairstyles converse vaguely with the deceased.
I am nothing if not open-minded. For one thing I hold the Massive in collective high esteem. I respect what you all think. So will anyone here raise their heads above the paranormal parapet and declare that, yes, there is someone there and it’s not total, total balderdash? Have you had an experience that can only be explained by there actually being an afterlife?
