About this title


A study of poltergeist activity analyzes the evidence for the origins, existence, and behavior of such phenomena and examines the relationship between the levels of energy and consciousness in human beings and in poltergeist forces


Wilson, a prolific author of books on philosophy and the occult, makes a case by case examination of a variety of poltergeist occurrences in an attempt to synthesize a viable explanation for the poltergeist phenomenon. After looking at evidence from cases varied by time and location he comes to the conclusion that poltergeists are spirit energies rather than a form of psychokinesis. His ideas are controversial, but well argued and documented.
