Poltergeist phenomena are commonly defined, in Parapsychology, as 'displays of energy that induce movement of objects which are ordinarily held in place by inertia and gravity'. It is a word derived from German, meaning, literally, 'noisy spirit' (poltern -noisy,geist- spirit) and phenomena can also include loud noises, the appearance of water, apports and asports (i.e. objects appearing and disappearing), and even spontaneous fires. Poltergeist phenomena are characteristically violent, physical and occur for a short time period (as opposed to longer term hauntings).
