Why are ghosts seen in clothing

Okay, I'll start my first discussion here.

Again and again I notice a point about ghostly apparitions or mysterious apparitions. There are repeated references to "the woman in the white dress" or "the man with the hat".

My very simple and also very disenchanting question about these apparitions is: Why do ghosts wear beautiful clothes if you please?

And now please no discussion àla "naked you would be ashamed".

When I assume the existence of spirits, I first assume that they are souls on the move, which make themselves noticeable through their aura, and could perhaps also take on physical forms. But how on earth are they supposed to "produce" material things like cloth or clothing?

I hope you understand the tenor of my question and look forward to a discussion with you.

That's a very interesting question.

I assume that you only wear what you were wearing at the time of your death. But is only my personal opinion

Some believe that ghosts look like the moment they died. That would explain why they wear clothes.

The substance that spirits are supposed to be made of is called ectoplasm. According to those who believe in it, ectoplasm can take a whole host of other forms, so not just human and animal bodies. This probably includes clothing.

So you believe that ghosts can "tinker" any kind of clothing out of ectoplasm?

Who wants to wear the same thing day after day ?! ;)

Ectoplasm ... okay, I've only heard the term from the "Ghostbusters" so far. Can you explain that in more detail?

Isn't that the stuff that was investigated that came out of the people during incantations?

I do not believe that. Some people believe that.

@ Hobbit22
This is the material ghosts are supposed to be made of ... if it exists at all. Nobody really knows what that is supposed to be

@ Nightstalker83
Yep

Sorry, then I got it wrong. I skimmed the part.

But there are so many inexplicable things in the world, why not that too?

They can no longer go shopping. Then make / conjure up clothes from ectoplasm or something similar? Yes why not

That's the stuff ;) It would be logical that the clothing consists of it, but the question why would not be answered. Vilt because it's just more familiar and for some reason you still cling to something. Vilt, ghosts wear clothes around it

I don't believe in an eternal, unchanging soul

@ dra280783
That is probably also all a question of faith

Well the objection might be a good explanation. From time to time there is talk of ghost apparitions in the form of dead soldiers. Who died in full uniform during a battle. For example

Neither do I 100%. But I am open to it and am interested in it. But it always means that EVERYTHING is transient. Therefore it has to be the soul too.

Yes, that's how I see it, if one can even speak of a soul.

I used to do a lot of work with ghosts

Right. But there are a few cases, at least I noticed that in documents etc. that there are also ghosts who are said to be seen more often in different clothes. Was it the same or several ghosts?

If so, my "theory" would be invalid

But the question of WHY can also be asked differently.

Why are it mostly women in white clothes e.g.

I don't really believe that our body rots after death and our soul ascends / descends.

But the ghostly apparitions must come from somewhere

Did you see them in the same place? As far as I know, ghosts are always tied to a specific place. For example, in the case of soldiers, to their cemetery of honor or to the battlefield on which they died. Or the classic castle ghosts that haunt their castle.

Yes, the ghost (s) should have been in the house.

Personally, I don't believe in it, but well.

So haven't you seen them yourself yet? I mean with the spirits, it's like with God. You either believe in it or you don't. In any case, there is no evidence that is accessible and understandable for everyone. Everyone creates for himself his own personal truth.
