Hoping no one who really knows will answer me

The world of spirits is a world of questions.

Those ghosts — what do they do, just float around and watch us? What do they want to tell us? What do they long for? Why are they still here?

After they died, what happened? Did they find themselves in a tunnel, as described in near-death experiences, and did they also see a bright light? Or did they only wake up to their earthly surroundings? Did they hear a voice? What did it tell them?

We can never completely know the answers to these questions until we ourselves pass away. The one definitive thing is this: the world “out there” exists. All we can do is to prepare for it.
