Ghosts world of the dead

Ghosts traverse the land of the dead.

The ghost was one of the parts of a human, along with the body and the soul, or dæmon. After a human died, their ghost was guided to the world of the dead by their death, where it was ferried to the land of the dead by the boatman.[1]

Whenever a ghost enters the world of the living, it disintegrates into atoms that merge with the surrounding environment. However, a ghost could hold itself together for a short amount of time while in the world of living, as John Parry and Lee Scoresby once did.
