Man's obsession with fire reaches far back into the dawn of life when he first encountered the heated glow of flames. The flames themselves, caused by the release of gases, mostly carbon, are incandescent (this, of course, is an over-simplified description). Fire is something else, too; it is evidence of a haunting. The release of carbon is precipitated by cosmic vibrations caused by the presence of one or more spirits -- either spirits in the material being burned, or perhaps spirits who died in a fire and are eternally attracted to the chemical reaction of flames. When you see flames flickering over charred wood, flashing orange, yellow, your are watching ghosts dance. Be very careful. They would love to cause harm to you and your property.
