That's funny, I don't remember dying.

Yes we are ghosts.

Blow an atom up to the size of a football field, the nucleus would be the size of a raisin and the electron orbiting the nucleus would be the size of a speck of dust. Between the nucleus and the electron? Nothing.

At the atomic scale if we removed all the spaces between the particles in your body you could dance on the head of a pin. You are 99.999...% made of absolutely nothing.

That gets even worse when you talk about what the particles themselves are made of, even more nothingness.

I found a nice little picture that makes it easy to understand just for all you ghosts.
