Poltergeists and PhDs: An Interview with Dr. Christopher Laursen


http://mysteriousuni...topher-laursen/

I try to show my students that they are getting a skewed point of view in the mass media that differs significantly from historically documented experiences and studies of the super natural. I moved them to a more neutral standpoint—a method in the humanities called methodological agnosticism where you stand in the middle to get a comprehensive view of events and ideas. Then they studied more radical, experience-centred approaches.

Attitude is your acceptance of the natural laws, or your rejection of the natural laws

Quote

Christopher Laursen: As a historian, I focused on the poltergeist phenomenon in the twentieth century for my Ph.D. The poltergeist is a term ascribed to when anomalous physical events occur. Usually they happen in someone’s home, but also in places of business, schools, or even outdoors. People often report strange knocking or tapping sounds. There are objects that move, fly, levitate, appear out of nowhere. There can be spontaneous fires. Experiencers have a great deal of difficulty knowing what to make of these events. Usually the manifestations last a few weeks or months, then stop. Sometimes they last much longer.
