  2. Diffusion of pollutants on the atmosphere.
  3. The movement of holes of electrical charge in semiconductors.

  • Ghosts have often been thought of as vehicles for justice. In Kenya, a murdered person may become a Ngoma - a spirit who pursues their murderer. In Russia, the rusalka is a spirit of a woman who drowned and now lures men to their death. She may be released when her death is avenged.
  • Ghosts can also be friends and protectors. Many people think that their deceased loved ones are watching over them and even guiding them.
  • Many people believe that death is not the end of existence and that the dead can communicate with the living.
