Alright, so let's say that you die and you're given a prompt screen that tells you that you died and many stats about your life such as how many miles you've walked, how many chocolate bars you've eaten, how much money you've made in your lifetime, etc.

There you're given a tablet that tells you that you're dead and you're free to choose between haunting the earth for the next 100,000 years, or choosing to pass on. If you choose to pass on, all that happens is your soul is destroyed and life returns to what it was like before you existed. At the end of your 100,000 years of haunting your soul is destroyed.

Now, as a ghost you can do many activities that humans can do such as pick things up or talk, but you cannot perform any bodily functions such as eating or sleeping. You also cannot perform human activities for very long due to your lack of a body, you have a time limit of 10 minutes a day doing things such as moving things, talking, or if you want, writing a book.

Because you didn't die in a traumatic manner, you're also not tethered to the location of your death and am free to roam the world.


Would you take this opportunity? Or would you opt out of it? Also what would you do as a ghost?



P.S. exorcisms and house blessings won't kill you if you get into spiritual warfare with a priest and lose

Gonna add the first reply. I'd choose to become a ghost and then probably haunt whoever gets elected president.

I would do petty stuff like trip them or tip over their coffee mugs.

Maybe push the nuke button and start world war 3 if I get bored with being a ghost.

After spending all my life being forced to work boring jobs just to survive, I'd rather have eternal rest and have no more contact with earthly life.

I would because I could watch anime even when I'm dead. Also messing with people would be funny.

Sure, I'd become a ghost. But I wouldn't haunt people, I'd just observe things.

I guess, I'd haunt someone if I see them committing a crime on my path.

Would death cure me of my anxiety disorder? Because I'd really rather not spend 100,000 years with that.

You know, a similar idea like this was briefly touched on in the ghost whisperer at one point. There was an episode where someone with autism died but as a ghost he wasn't autistic anymore. Not to say that the change should've been as drastic as it was, but the part about the mind being free from bodily limitations made some sense.

I'm not sure I understand the dilemma. I'm presented with the choice of either becoming a ghost and effectively receiving super powers and a 100,000 year life span boost or vanishing from existence entirely on the spot. Why wouldn't I choose to be a ghost under those circumstances?

Suppose that makes sense, it's not like a ghost would be stuck with cancer if you died with it. But it is hard to imagine what my personality would be like without my anxiety. Thinking about it is making me a little existential, haha.
