“Poltergeist” is a German word meaning “noisy spirit.” Current research indicates, that poltergeist activity may have nothing to do with ghosts or spirits because the activity seems to center around one individual. It is believed that this phenomena may be caused by the subconscious mind of that individual… in effect, psychokinetic activity.
The individual is often under emotional, psychological or physical stress (even going through puberty). Effects can include banging on walls and floors, the physical movement of objects, rearrangement of furniture, effects on lights and other electric appliances – even the manifestation of physical phenomena.
These events in almost all cases are understandingly terrifying to the people who are experiencing them. Poltergeists can also be hard to distinguish from other types of spirit hauntings.
