* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: A variation. The movie never goes out and ''says'' that George is communicating with the dead. Since he only tells people things they already know, [[EpilepticTrees some people have speculated]] that he's really only reading people's memories of their loved ones and then telling them what they want to hear.
