I ain’t afraid of no ghost.
Professor Frink: Great glavin’s ghost, he’s alive!
Mr. Burns: That’s right. I pulled a Jesus.
I am a big believer in the supernatural. In the words of Lydia Deetz, I have a tolerance for “the strange and unusual. (As) I myself am strange and unusual.” Do you believe in ghosts? always weeds out the weirdos. I, personally, am open minded. One of the well-worn tropes of ghosts in particular, is that they have unfinished business.
The notion that hauntings are the result of the disembodied soul of a deceased person, unable to move on to the afterlife, hinges on the premise that ghosts are somehow conscious. They have business to take care of on Earth before they can pass on.
The alternative hypothesis is that ghosts are somehow memories or recordings etched onto the material elements in this plane of existence. In some ways like sound recorded on magnetic tape. Ghosts are not conscious and are without agency, merely playing the same recording over and over. This explains why ghosts often pass through walls and their discarnate forms misalign with floors and ceilings; modern buildings do not match up with the structures present when they were still with the living.
Where am I going with this?!
I am back at SCA, a spectre. I haunt the studio and have precognition to boot. The curiously minded seek me out asking, what surprises are in store?
The question is, do I have unfinished business or will I merely replay the same recording over and over? I know I have unfinished business, and I will not move on until I have made peace with the material plane that is SCA.
I am in control of my own destiny.
In the original theatrical trailer for Ghostbusters, the now famous 555 number seen in the film was replaced by a working 1-800 number, which led to a pre-recording of Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. The number received 1,000 calls an hour, 24 hours a day, for six weeks.
