The idea of this theory is that once we get to know everything about spirits, we will no longer be afraid of them.
It’s human nature to be afraid of spirits because of the fact that is a specter of a recently deceased person who you might have known during their lifetime. There are many stories around which focuses on that subject, especially a family home that’s been around through generations from one member to another member of the family.
There are many theories out there which attempts to solve that mystery. Why are we afraid of spirits? No one knows exactly why, It really depends on that person who experiences the spirit.
