ok, yeah i know..but a post about photographing dead loved ones at their funerals sparked this question. i'm not talking about ghosts or spirits..or am i? in my adult life, there have been several occurances where i did a double-take on someone, thinking, ''OMG! that looked like...that was...it couldn't be..but she/he's... wtheck?'
i know the mind can play tricks, and there's probably some quasi-psychological reason for thinking i'm looking at someone who's passed on. but it happened just the other day, again! i even followed this lady around the store: her physical shape, hair style, posture, gait, even her clothing looked sooooo similar. when she turned and i saw her face, i nearly peed my pants!!!
I've come up with some fantastical stories of why the person is not really dead: Someone drugged them to make it look like they were dead (I never get to the WHY they would do this) and then after the funeral, they came and stole them, revived them and when they woke up, they had no memory of who they really were and so this person who took them gave them a new identity.
I've even thought about them being buried alive and after digging themselves out, they were stark raving made and lost their memory and now they are walking around not knowing their former life or their family! Kind of like those zombies in Haiti.

I've done this many times. I think I see my grandmother all the time, but she's been gone for 10 years! It's like you know they're dead, but part of you still thinks 'hey! maybe they faked their death and are pretending to be someone else!'
