quote:Originally posted by QuantumcatThat's the whole point .... all individuals agree on what exactly a dream is, even though they are different and have experienced it seperately to the others who also agree on what a dream is. The seperate individuals all agree, so it has to be real! People who have never been introduced to the idea of a "ghost" will never say they've seen one, though someone who has never been told the idea of a "dream" will still say they've experienced something that the rest of us agree that a dream is. I remember until I was about eight or so, I used to wonder what on earth the well-known "pins and needles" sensation was, and if I was the only person who experienced it, and whether it was something that everyone experienced. I asked someone and was told it was called "pins and needles". If the "pins and needles" was a made-up idea, I couldn't have experienced it without previously knowing what it was. People experience "ghosts" because they have already been told what the general idea of a "ghost" is, and so pretend that they have experienced it when they haven't. They can't say they've experienced it if they haven't already been told what a "ghost" is. Since the idea of "ghost" is vague and lacking detail, people put their own detail into it and that's why people's experiences of "ghosts" are different. Whereas if it is a real thing the details will stay the same no matter what, even if the general definition is vague, so the person cannot put their own details into their exoperience and therefore all experiences of this object will be the same!!!! Which means it has to be real!!!! People's experiences of ghosts are all different, therefore they do not exist!!!!!!!!!! I think I've just repeated myself over and over and I apologise, but do you understand what I am saying?!?!?!?!
donchiragjain10036, I was curious why you dug this topic up from 2003, especially as your post comprised a single word.
