Poltergeist



The word poltergeist is German for 'noisy ghost' and refers to a series of paranormal disturbances attributed to an entity. Poltergeist cases are characterised by physical disturbances such as loud noises, knocks, taps, the movement or throwing of objects, voices and other phenomena. Reports of poltergeists have been studied for years.

Poltergeist activity tends to occur in bursts or to start and stop suddenly with no further activity before or after. Some poltergeist cases seem to focus on one particular person rather than to a physical location ( in particular young females ) leading some researchers to believe that the poltergeist phenomenon could be the result of psychic manifestations rather than a ghost or spirit.
