One might ask an alternative question as the original poster, namely Where are our very distant ancestors? I have never heard a story of anyone witnessing early man anywhere.
I find this as interesting as no one ever reporting having seen a dinosaur.
In this regard it is also interesting that PK tests on early artifacts dating back thousands and millions of years produce interesting and apparently correct results. However, of course one could say that this could be retrocognition or pre-cognition on the part of those participating in the tests as much as any real contact psychometric contact.
So time does seem to play a role, at least in what we think of as conventional apparitional and haunting behaviors. The question seems to be where is the dividing line in time?
Anomalous Phenomena is Unexplained not Impossible
Psi is Subtle not Absolute
Anything is possible, it'a all a matter of Probability

I think your quite right PhenomInvestigator. We have another forum topic called Oldest Ghost which has mentioned Romans and probably the oldest "supposed" apparition being that of a stone age horseman. Whether the stone age one is right I am not 100% sure.
So finding the oldest ghost may give an idea of when they may decay.......if this is how ghosts function.
could it be that before a certain time we were more "in tune" with the world around us and thus no ghosts?
What are these PK tests on artifacts and what were the results, please?
That depends on how far back to want to go and if we're about to get into the myth/legend type of accounts.
I will conceed that most recent and credible reports are of domestic animal ghosts (with dogs and cats neck in neck for the lead), unless you subscribe to the theory that some of the things that cryptozoologists are chasing around are actually a type of ghost.
Ironically, the only animal-type spirit I've had the privilage of observing personally was of a (great dane-sized) red fox, though an associate of mine I consider credible has related to me a story of an encounter he once had with a phantom horse.

Anyway, where are the land dinosaur ghosts then?
They're called DRAGONS and reports of their appearance were fairly common in the Classical World, continuing down to at least the Early Mediaeval Period. :)
I've just been thinking - might ghosts have half-lives, and if so might the half-life of a dinosaur ghost be considerably less than 70 million years?
I've actually heard reports of precolumbian native ghosts showing up in places. As for Nessie being a ghost, I did a hear an interesting story. Remember that movie "The Men Who Stare at Goats?" Well, there was a psychic portrayed in that who claimed to have made contact with Nessie "It's the ghost of a dinosaur," he said. Supposedly, the movie is based (even if loosely) on fact.
Don't forget the African sightings of Mokelembebe. It appears to be a Brachiosaurous or some similar, large, land-based dino. There are tonnes of sightings, yet no bones or physical evidence. Dino ghost?
Could Sasquatch sightings be visitations by early giganto apes, or "the missing link?" Native people in the Americas often say that the creatures are spiritual being, unable to be trapped in this temporal world.
Hi Hapkido1, welcome to Mysterious Britain. I must admit I had never heard of Mokelembebe ... obviously I am spending too much time concentrating on just Britain. After having a look at it though I think I'll be adding it to the websites Mysterious World section sometime soon:)
Thank you! I'm a huge fan of the cryptids and mysteries of the isles. Let me know if I can help with research. Also, I've only just gotten here, but where is the Big Grey Man? I've not seen him on the site.
Spynie Palace was the seat of the bishops of Moray for over 500 years; the atmospheric ruins now a shell of its former glory. The Palace - like many old historical buildings - has its share of traditions and ghost stories. Read More »
