BACK TO GHOSTS
Even with the coming of the modern age, there seems to be no disappearance of ghosts, spirits and supernatural things and beings. In effect as we begin to become more acculturated to the modern technological-scientific era, we strive to maintain our hold on to a "purer" past with its low tech, cultural values , family-orientation. Since the supernatural world has to do with the past it is invariably tied to family. Therefore, these supernatural things and beliefs are attempts to tie the past to the present and to show the world that to be purely technological and scientific, means to lose hold of the human essence, of family, ancestors, gods and our beliefs and values.
