In many ghost stories, you either have ghosts that can actively respond to their surroundings much like a living person would, or ghosts that regularly show up and seem entirely oblivious of anyone or anything else while they repeat a specific action (such as say, the last few moments before their demise).

Long story short, do you think these two both qualify as "ghosts" or are they fundamentally different entities? I remember reading something in some old 2000s forum which effectively speculates those ghosts who only repeat one action aren't 'proper' ghosts in that their soul already passed on and what we see is just some sort of psychic echo that was imprinted on the locale they haunt due to their usually traumatic death.
Meanwhile, those ghosts who could still react to various stimuli were 'still there' as proper ghosts. Curiously, old people suffering from dementia and Alzheimers supposedly are especially prone to turning into ones because their minds are too eroded to note they have died; leading to angry reactions when perfect strangers invade "their" home.

In the folklore of Central Europe, after death the soul goes to Heavem or Hell. If they go to Hell, their body and/or spirit/mind(hence why the German word for spirit and mind is the same: Geist) might turn into an undead as a warning to the living not to sin. While these undead walk the earth, regardless if they are corporeal or uncorporeal, they still can feel their souls burning and suffering in Hell which is the reason most undead wail, screech and howl and show erratic behavior.

I don't get the difference - wouldn't the spirit and the 'Geist' be synonymous?
Moreover, this wouldn't explain the nature of those ghosts who only repeat a single sequence.

>I don't get the difference - wouldn't the spirit and the 'Geist' be synonymous?
The difference is that the spirit/mind and the soul are different things. The body is composed of body, spirit and soul and while the soul goes to heaven or hell, your body and/or spirit can still haunt the physical world as a warning to the living.
>Moreover, this wouldn't explain the nature of those ghosts who only repeat a single sequence.
The spirit suffers from dementia with age, becuase like the body it is not immortal like the soul. Additionally the spirit can be forced the repeat an action as punishment similar how Sisyphus was punished in Greek Mythology.

Could you elaborate on the difference between the spirit and the soul? I always thought the two were synonymous.

Hey guys, /icup/ here with a question on how we're going to handle the next iteration of the Infinity Cup ( https://anon.cafe/icup/ )
We're trying to poll whether certain boards are interested in playing in the cup, or if there's some specific team that you'd like to see play. If you want to, please answer or add your own answer to the poll in https://poal.me/6x3j1u

I disagree, in part because we only know very little of our ancients and there's still a ton of stuff to unearth. Another thing that makes me wonder if ancient humans or even a completely different species of hominid had any control over our world is the fact that the time scale we're working with is extremely large. Dr. Stone might be feeding into my delusions, but still.

The iron itself was a major factor, but so was the introduction of blades/ spear tips that were cast (i.e, mass-produced) instead of forged.
At least in Mycenaean Greece, the idea is that the highly-centralized palace-style economy could only support a small, elite military force; as having too many soldiers too far away from whatever regent you had invariably sparked rebellions.

Now guess what happens if you have some nomadic tribes who have a much larger number of soldiers by virtue that virtually every male owns a weapon and knows how to fight. And guess what happens if these guys just show up and ransack the local "palace" alongside the regent.

In a way, you could liken it to the end of the medieval age, when knights were increasingly replaced by better peasants armed with pikes, crossbows (and, most important) early gunpowder weapons. Heaving heavy armor and a lifetime of training didn't help when some random peasant could just dismount you from your horse with his pike or flatly shoot you in the face with a crossbow.
In the same way, the nomads with Iron weapons destroyed the small warrior elite of the palace culture by means of superior number and superior weaponry.

Depending on where the entire "hacking wars" thing might go, we may even see a new wave by means of collectivized regular citizens doing digital warfare against various government actors.

I have heard many stories about ghosts huanting someone's home by moving abjects and making weird noises, but I never believed them. I always thought there must some logical reason for these "ghost encounters", surely spirits wouldnt open drawers and turn lights on and off to huant people, it just makes 0 sense. But it all changed last night. I was terrified and worried for my life, I completely changed my perspective on paranormal activities.

Last night me and my family were having dinner as usual, it was around 6 o clock and we were enjoying some take out Asian food from a local Chinese resturuant. My family is close with the man who owns the place and we go there often. As we were eating my dad told me I have to go to sleep one hour earlier, 8 o clock to be exact. He didnt explain why, which i found weird but i didnt think too much of it. Once we were done eating I went to my room to play zelda botw, and as I played time flew by quickly and it was now 8. My mom from across the house yelled that I have to go to sleep. I turned off the lights and went into bed like they told me to, but what they didnt know was that I had my 2ds with me. I pretended to be asleep so that I could stay up and play more video games, but sometime around 10:30 I started hearing weird noises coming from my parents room. It sounded like someone was clapping and chanting "ooh oh oh ah aah ah". This went on for 10 minutes before i started hearing some one or something  aggressively hitting the wall

Assuming they are divinely revealed? Well, why not.

Problem is, we don't even know for sure if the "original books" as such ever existed, or if they were compiled and selected from much older texts or oral myth. Historical revisionism was as much a thing as it is today - probably even more so, considering only a small elite could actually read and write.

Mind you, not that everything is fake. A good deal of stuff in the Bible is legit history, and Jesus most certainly existed. Whether he really was the Son of God or only was deified by word-of-mouth is another question, just like (to take a ludicrous example) whether Elvis is still around.

So what are Black-eyed children anyway? Ghosts? Vampires? Aliens? Interdimensionals?

The vampire theory seems to hold some connection in as much as vampires, too, traditionally are said not to be able of entering your house/sanctuary without prior invitation, bult ultimately they could be any sort of shapeshifters.
And I trust taking them in and supplying them with headpats won't do the trick, either.

What if the Black-Eyed children were not actually fully black-eyed, but had dilated pupils due to being drugged?
I remember reading one theory according to which the kids are basically victims of trafficking and are heavily sedated by their handles to keep them complacent. I'm neither a doctor nor a psychatrist, but this might explain a) aforementioned dilated eyes and b) their strange, off-tone behavior, and c) their insistence of you letting them into your house/car because they're locked up in the pizza parlor otherwise.

I mean, if these really were some sort of supernatural creatures, I doubt a simple "No" from a regular mortal would suffice to turn them away.

Got any theories about what's happening in national parks/forests where numerous people - sometimes during the same span of time - just up and go missing entirely, as if they were wiped off the face of the Earth? Missing 411 is a good series of books concerning these events and the occurrences surrounding them. Finding bones of the deceased miles from eachother, full search parties being conducted in an orderly fashion and not finding the person until a day or two after in a location which was already searched, mysteriously convenient storms happening during the search or soon after, etc etc

I find it unlikely that all the people who went missing actually ended up dying in the forest/park they were lost in, considering how the bodies were almost never found. A part of me thinks it's some human trafficking ring that picks up lost people in forests and scurries them off in their cars where they will then be taken to whatever facilities they have. 

Is there any possibility it's something supernatural? Maneating holes a la the Sarlaak from Star Wars spotting the forest floors? Skinwalkers?

Here's a link to the NPS Cold Case database: 
https://www.nps.gov/orgs/1563/cold-cases.htm
The list of people cycles irregularly (with the closing of cases with bodies found, NOT explained) and you can look through wayback to find descriptions of more cases. It might be worth the time to pin a google map with the locations each person vanished, to see if there's any pattern, shape, or places that have an unusually high incidence of vanishings.
A very recent high-profile case internationally was the disappearance and death of Richard Morris, a British diplomat, whose dead body appeared in a distant forest after vanishing on a run. One might cynically expect a murder, battery, or signs of animal attack, but in fact his apparent relocation and death came with no immediate cause or signs of struggle- in fact, police basically consider the death "unsuspicious," despite the facts that:
>They missed him on the first search, which included where he allegedly died.
>He left the trail, and the reason he left the trail at all is unknown.
>He had no history of cardiovascular disease and was an accomplished runner, so the usual causes of such spontaneous death are suspect.
Explicitly paranormal causes aside, it definitely feels like some MIB shit.

While I don't doubt China does some pretty ugly things to people, I do doubt they would go as far as to mass-import Americans into their country when they have more than enough people of their own to harvest. Not counting
 specialized fields such as sex slavery, where the fat old men may want a Caucasian blonde every once in a while.

If people are abducted in US national parks are abducted to pleasure a however vaguely defined "elite", I'd rather expect it to be for domestic consumption. Up to, and including cannibalism. Not because they believe in that Chinese traditional medicine baby pill hoodoo, but simply because they're getting off to doing things the average Joe is not allowed to.
