Explore various ghost types by examining differences in appearance and behavior...
Ghosts have been observed in diverse forms by witnesses of haunting. This, sometimes, has lead paranormal investigators to believe there are different types of ghosts. But are there? Maybe, how ghosts look to us could be due to variables, such as how we are able to perceive them, the condition of the person's soul, the choice of appearance, etc.
We suggest researching different ideas and accounts of ghost conduct, below, comparing this with how spectres have been known to appear to the human eye.

Ghosts Types: Why the Differences?
Various anomalies have been witnessed or even photographed by ghost investigators, including balls of light, mists, black shadows and apparitions. Why the differences, and are they ghosts? These are good questions.
In theory, different appearances could be caused by varying factors such as differing wavelengths of light that the ghost is manifesting in before our eyes or even the condition of the person's soul, possibly. Is the ghost a negative or positive person, for example, and how might that appear to us when the body no longer exists? And of course, it is also conceivable that some aberrations are not ghosts at all. As example, could a ghost sighting, in some cases, simply be a figment of one's own imagination, a dream or a vision of some sort?
Still, differences in how ghosts might look to us have been photographed or video recorded. So, when looking at photographic or video captures, we need to strive to try and determine if the anomalies we record are actually ghosts or if they might be something explainable. But let's say the entity is truly there in front of us and definitely paranormal: Could some of these enigmatic organisms that we label as "ghosts" potentially be enlightened spirits or angels? As paranormal investigators, and especially with ghosts, to date, there are many questions and many theories we need to do a better job of scrutinizing.
