Mutual ghosts. This category includes ghosts of living people, and the agent and percipient as to see each other. In most cases such an agent is experiencing a great desire to be close to percipients (this desire can be caused by a feeling of loneliness, longing, love, or anxiety). Agent suddenly finds himself caught up in the immediate vicinity of the percipient, which, in turn, observes the agent. Mutual ghosts can be both individually and collectively. One possible explanation for this phenomenon lies in the fact that the agent can "projected" from the state, allowing a sense of alienation (see Uilmotskoe ghost); Specter on his deathbed.

Having reached the end of the bed, it turns sharply and, just swaying, gliding to the other end. With eyes wide open I have been closely watching its movements. They were uniform, monotonous, and made some strong impression. I could clearly discern the head, shoulders and arms, but facial features were very vague. I grabbed a box of matches, lit a candle.

However, after two or three minutes it became less pronounced. Its color is pale and blurred contours, and a few minutes, she completely disappeared. "

These circumstances are also firmly convinced the inhabitants of the house that these phenomena can not be explained by any conventional manner.
