The game world is slightly bigger than our world..but most people on it are not aware of that.
There are just some locations that don't show up on any maps and that people tend to forget are real.

Locations like Innsmouth, Elborough, Arkham, Sunnydale...
In fact humans have a tendency to forget all supernatural occurrences (or misremember such events as dreams...or a movie they once saw)
Only extremely strong or very frequent supernatural incidents will make a person accept them as reality. Once that happens they will recall all of them as real.


----------------
Ghost energy (or Psychokinetc energy or PKE) is usual measured in Spengler.
1 Spengler is the minimum energy a ghost need to manifest physically.

A typical ghost would have between 3 and 6 Spengler.

Something like Gozer can be estimated to have around 25 Spengler

The background radiation in most parts of the world is about 3 milli Spengler.

Special towns that tend to forgotten by the general public tend to have at least 10 times that.
In fact Elburough has currently a background radiation of 67 milli Spengler


What is unclear is if Ghosts come to "life" because of the higher background PKE levels..or if the ghosts are the cause for the background PKE levels.

Ghost is a bit of a misnomer.
Ecto creatures are created when sufficent PKE fills an Emotional imprint in reality.

That means many Ecto Creatures are very simple minded.
No matter if they look like a floating green potato or actually have the form of a human.

But that is not always the case.
Luckily the smart Ecto creatures have a tendency to require very high PKE levels to be able to manifest and so are rarely encountered.


That Ecto Creatures are created by emotional impression can mean that a Ghost of someone can be created by a different person.
(There are probably hundreds of Elvis ghosts around))
Sometimes there can even be a ghost version of a person who hasn't even died yet
