Poltergeists: In Depth: The term “poltergeist” translates to “noisy ghost,” which is how 16th Century Germans saw the particular physical phenomena when they coined the term. Beginning in the early 20th Century and by the 1950s–based on hundreds of case investigations and research studies–parapsychologists formed a new model: living agent psychokinesis (PK).
Learn why this model holds up so well, how it helps us resolve the situations and how it connects to lab research on PK. Why do some people become poltergeist agents and why are “little poltergeists” so common?
We’ll also consider PK caused by apparent apparitions/entities, how the activity and experiences differ, and why apparitional PK activity is no longer called “poltergeist activity” here in the US.
Finally, we’ll look at the how the living-agent distinction is not necessarily made in other parts of the world, such as the UK, what recent analyses of activity in cases has revealed, and how much poltergeist activity in recent times has actually focused on electronic devices in our lives and happen in small ways to all of us.
With some focus on the work of the late William G. Roll, who formalized the model used for living agent PK, we’ll take a really close look at noisy ghosts!
The class will be recorded, and you will receive the mp3 afterwards, as well as a number of articles and supporting text documents.
