Thats according to Gary Hill, author of People Who Dont Know Theyre Dead: How They Attach Themselves To Unsuspecting Bystanders And What To Do About It (Weiser Books).
Hill says recently deceased John Paul II is probably not a hitchhiker his term for a dead person who attaches their spirit to a living person in an attempt to hold on to a physical existence.
Since the Pontiff died naturally, Hill says he knew what to expect in the afterlife and would realize hes dead and not bother to stick his spirit onto someone elses body, such as his successor, Pope Benedict XVI.
Hill thinks John Paul IIs spirit is more likely hanging out with other Catholics in heaven or, as he puts it, a less dense world, and hes very comfortable with where he is.
Hills book is a non-fictional account of how his aunt and uncle came to counsel dead spirits who take up residence in bodies that werent theirs.
It hits stores in June.
