What about plants?  They are alive but don't have brains or synapses.  Do they still produce energy?

I believe so. I personally believe that, they carry certain energies specific to species, which is the reasons some have metaphysical use, when there's no chemical/physical reason for us to respond to them. (Just to note, I don't think much of magic...)

Where are you getting the 10% from?  (I'm not challenging you, I'm just curious.  Haven't seen that factoid before.)

My basic biology lessons. On the food chain say a herbivore eats the grass, only 10% of the grass gets passed along as energy for the herbivore. If a carnivore eats the herbivore, only 10% of the herbivore's energy is passed along as energy for the carnivore.

They also measure electro-magnetic differences.  And sometimes they do find 'hot spots' in temperature.  It's got to be a lot of work to keep all that energy together though.  On it's own, heat energy will disperse.  So where is the ghost getting new energy to sustain itself?  They aren't eating food....hmm...this requires deeper thought on my part. 

See, you learn something new everyday. I didn't know that. As far as the energy source, I have no earthly idea. I'm an education mahor, so I've reached the end of my knowledge of basic science and physics.

I like your explanation.  I'd also like to see Everfool argue against it.   Wink

Feel free Everfool, I'm sorry if I'm one of those people who are stubborn. But this is what I believe, so if yoou find any serious holes tell me. I already think I'm a little crazy, so I wouldn't be suprised if you do too.

But I won't reply today, I'm having a *blegh* day and I'm tired, hormonal, and moody, so I don't think I could be as objective as need be for this discussion.
