The "natural" history of ghosts

From Sunderland Today:

Do ghosts have a natural lifespan on our mortal earth? It could be – though there are some ghosts that seem to defy such explanations and remain active for decades, even centuries. One such plagued a house on the other side of the river, at North Hylton. This house, known as North Hylton Grange, was demolished in 1949 after a fire, but its site is well known. It was here that a gentleman in Regency dress used to appear. Dressed in fine velvet, he would stalk the house, rattling doors and tapping on windows. As ghosts go, he was both active and remarkably solid. But then his "home" burned and was knocked down until nothing remained. And the ghost went with it.
It's a fun article, well worth reading... We've blogged about the Ghosthunter column in Sunderland Today before - since there are many more ghost stories from this part of North England to be found on their site, I wonder how they stayed off our radar for the last six months...

Personally, I think ghosts are more spirit than mind (opposite of a zombie, that has had its spirit detached), so they fade out when they forget why they decided to hang around in the first place.
