      GHOST - A Book Of… ODD… STRANGE… SPINE-TINGLING HAIR-RAISING… TALES Look around you! Are we really alone in our existence, or are the things we see only the way we perceive them to be? Maybe they are only figments of our imagination...Oh yes, imagination! One of the greatest gifts we have as human beings. It allows us to be whatever we want, play out scenes and acts in our minds, or travel to far away planets. Why some scientists even believe that imagination is the one thing that separates mankind from the lower animals! But...what is it really? It must be very powerful because it is the category where people always place ghost, a figment of our imagination, nothing more, nothing less. Now let’s see... if I see a Ghost do I really want to tell people I see a Ghost? Their going to tell me that it was a figment of my imagination, and then they are going to suggest that it was a dream, or ask me what I was smoking or drinking. But what if you see the Ghost with me, and we are with a dozen people at the time? Well, then it becomes mass hysteria, and our credibility is brought under question. Beep...you loose either way. It is totally acceptable to tell Ghost stories though. Almost everyone has one. They are neat little items that are told around a campfire, or at late night slumber parties. Lately they have become the focus of many television programs, and very popular books. People love to read Ghost stories, hear them, or tell them ...just remember, don’t actually say you’ve seen a Ghost! (See Ghost Rule Number: 1). Anyway, whatever the case may be, I personally like to tell them, and have found over the years that they thrill me to death. I am not out to prove the existence of Ghost.... I think that is something that each one of us does for ourselves, I am simply telling some of the stories that I have heard over the years and that have stayed with me.
