It’s just a thought, but the more I study residual hauntings, the more I wonder if time can occur simultaneously and be only faintly captured by us as it’s occurring. Is it possible that everything that happened where you are standing is happening there now, past, present, and future? What about sensations of déjà vu? Could they be tied to time occurring simultaneously? I wonder this because in my childhood home I one time heard my sister banging on the wall and arguing with my mom and that event had happened long ago.
What would be the difference between residual hauntings and time occurring concomitantly? Well, in a residual haunting a single event that had occurred would replay as if on a loop. Not necessarily in real-time to the event. If all time periods occurred simultaneously, a glimpse of a residual would be a glimpse of a live event, but then if all time periods occur simultaneously it would replay continuously, held in some kind of alternate dimension and therefore appear to be residual.
Could an event be part of a continuum that is like the universe, without beginning and end?
Might things like alien encounters be nothing more than a momentary glimpse at our future? Could the sense of being watched be a moment when many time periods are occurring in the same place? Would haunted places in say England be haunted because there’s just so many events occurring in the same building over a millennium that they skim across each other and occasionally “show” themselves?
I like to throw a bit of philosophical debate out there now and again. I like people to think and wonder and ask questions.
Our answers are somewhere in the musings of those who don’t see things as linear but perhaps concomitant or infinite.
