Poltergeist occurrences are displays of energy that induce the movement of common household objects which ordinarily are held in place by inertia and gravity. At the same time the events reflect psychological tension between the central person and others, including investigators. Thus, the phenomenon combines physical and psychological processes. It is commonly referred to as recurrent spontaneous psychokinesis or RSPK. 
PART THREE: A MULTIDIMENSIONAL MODEL OF THE DECEASED STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Cardiac arrest and the near-death experience are two closely related phenomena. Some people who survived cardiac arrest reported experiencing an extraordinary realm that includes a dark tunnel and a
Poltergeist Phenomena : A Primer on Parapsychological Research and Perspectives
We present a basic primer for paranormal enthusiasts on the current state of parapsychological research and perspectives relating to phenomena traditionally labeled “poltergeist.” Topics such as case
Case report: A prototypical experience of ‘poltergeist’ activity, conspicuous quantitative electroencephalographic patterns, and sLORETA profiles – suggestions for intervention
TLDR
The striking quantitative electroencephalography, sLORETA results, and experimental elicitation of similar subjective experiences in a middle-aged woman who has been distressed by these classic phenomena that began after a head injury suggest people displaying these experiences and possible anomalous energies can be viewed clinically and potentially treated.
Parapsychological Phenomena as Examples of Generalized Nonlocal Correlations – A Theoretical Framework
Scientific facts are constituted as consensus about observable phenomena against the background of an accepted, or at least plausible, theory. Empirical data without a theoretical framework are at
Parapsychological Phenomena as Examples of Generalized Nonlocal Correlations — A Theoretical Framework

Entropy and Subtle Interactions
Entropy considerations are used to determine the types of subtle interactions (SI), or psi phenomena, that are consistent with the second law of thermodynamics. The analysis is preceded by a short
The Ouroborous (Part I): Towards an ontology of connectedness in ecopsychology research
In this paper we explore a new ontological foundation for ecopsychology research. Central to ecopsychology is the idea of the ecological self – the human self as a deeply interconnected part of wider
PREDICTIONS OF THE MODEL OF PRAGMATIC INFORMATION ABOUT RSPK
The model of pragmatic information (MPI) is applied to RSPK phenomena and leads to several predictions. The first prediction is that RSPK phenomena show two clusters of phenomena, which can be

Human Personality and its Survival of Bodily Death
TLDR
This book is a record of the life-work of a pertinacious and industrious student in a region beyond the borderland of present orthodox science, and has for its object the better comprehension and coordination of a multitude of human faculties, some of them recognised as real though obscure, others not yet generally recognised as existing.
Some Philosophical Questions about Telepathy and Clairvoyance
The founder of Psychical Research, though he has not yet received the honour due to him, seems to have been King Croesus of Lydia, who reigned from 560 to 546 B.C. He carried out an interesting
Geophysical Variables and Behavior: XXXIII. Onsets of Historical and Contemporary Poltergeist Episodes Occurred with Sudden Increases in Geomagnetic Activity
TLDR
Statistical analyses suggest that poltergeist episodes frequently begin on the day of a sudden and intense increase in global geomagnetic activity and suggest that these unusual episodes may be some form of natural phenomena that are associated with geophysical factors.
Principles of human knowledge, and, Three dialogues
Berkeley's idealism started a revolution in philosophy. As one of the great empiricist thinkers he not only influenced British philosophers from Hume to Russell and the logical positivists in the
Quantum Mechanical Actuation of Microelectromechanical Systems by the Casimir Force
TLDR
This work demonstrates the Casimir effect in microelectromechanical systems using a micromachined torsional device and shows that quantum electrodynamical effects play a significant role when the separation between components is in the nanometer range.
Physics from Fisher Information: A Unification
This book defines and develops a unifying principle of physics, that of 'extreme physical information'. The information in question is, perhaps surprisingly, not Shannon or Boltzmann entropy but,
