Is it only my perception that in a lot of cases, these friendly/unfriendly spirits/beings, do for most of the time "live"/"exist" inside the very framework of Stone? Certainly there is a good chance the Stones at Stonehenge were "inhabited"? Houses built from brick and mortar dont have the same composition/molecular-structure as stone. So, they have "visitors" close-by whom exit/enter via portals into a variety of dimensions. A Castle like a Church has cold stone walls, thick available-housing for the haunting-spectre! Borley-rectory which had numerous hauntings unfortunately burnt down but parts of its construction concealed many "habitable-places" for ghosts/spectres to roam free. I cannot imagine what awaits in Vlad-Tepes castle! Elizabeth-Bathory too, those infamous names hold many spectres within their castle walls. Why should these spirits/demons leave, they have more right to be there than you or I. trouble is "their nasty cravings for damnation", to seek out blood, to harm in any way, never knows no bounds. As long as the Walls exist they will stay! An Exorcism is only good for ONE removal, and such is not guaranteed! The priest with his Prayers is really using "vibration" to penetrate the unseen workings of a haunted establishment. The special-words speech merely "moving the demon/poltergeist (an entity), from one part of the property to another. What we are talking about here IS NOT human-possesion but Property-posession. A human posessed may very well die, But a structure with walls/stone or mortar nope! This is a topic for discussion not a positive conclusion or treatise written in stone. however, Gravestones too may well conceal a unwelcome spectre, The Great pyramid and Lesser Pyramids Too may be harbouring unseen forces! The Infinite particles/atoms and molecules which inhabit our world ARE alive, which is instrumental in many Magical-achievments through cause and Affect. The Sword cutting-through-air perhaps cutting a Pentagram. The dagger. Why even Excalibur takes energy from mother-earth, he whom wields excalibur is truly Invincible as He or She holding this alien-vessel is an Instrument of CONDUCTIVITY, between the Sword and Mother earth, her energys infinite. The molecules of this Alien-sword slicing through steel like a knife cutting butter! Tis a wise Sage/Magi whom spends more time "in other worlds" than pretending to live in a manufactured illusion! So "What are your views my learned friends?" Speak and be knowledgable. richard
I think it depends. Spirits can be attached to a place, reside in stone walls but they could also be attached to a specific location. There might have been a building built on that location so that place can become haunted but the place remains haunted even if the building has long been demolished whereas in the first situation the spirits leave when the building or graveyard is demolished.
I personally think that it is locations that are haunted or become haunted and that there sometimes are buildings built on top of that. Think for example about an ancient graveyard, the house that has been built on top of it much later sometimes become haunted.
But there are also cases in which a spirit is attached to a specific building, stone gravestone or anything like that. hm i'm confused.. I guess both are possible.
That brick theory is why Alton, IL is considered one of the most haunted small towns in the world. During the Civil War, hundreds of soldiers died in the prison located in the center of town. When the war was over, the prison was taken apart and the bricks used to build the other buildings in the town. All the buildings have had at least one sighting of a soldier.
Nope, other people have the same perceptions as you do. Although I wouldn't go so far as to call it common I would say it isn't particularly rare to think these thoughts.
