Quantum Entanglement and Poltergeist Activity

What Exactly is Quantum Entanglement?

The field of quantum physics can easily be mind-boggling for the average person. I know I have spent many hours trying to sort through material, familiarize myself with terminology and concepts, and make sense of the processes involved with this amazing phenomenon of science.

There are three men accredited with writing a physics paper on this very subject - Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky, and Nathan Rosen. In this publication Einstein refers to "spooky action at a distance" which essentially means it was discovered that two entangled particles exist in a complementary state. If one particle is altered in any way, then the other particle will be altered in the same way, regardless of their distance to each other.

Entanglement is traditionally performed and studied on photons because light is easier to manipulate and monitor than atoms or electrons. Typically light is beamed through a prism and the result is multiple rays of light which were entangled at the source. If one light beam is altered, all the other light beams are "communicated" with to respond in like.

It is a very strange phenomenon that we are really just beginning to understand. Our knowledge so far has created the technology of fiber optics and, more recently, the development of quantum computers.

Haunted Objects

Back in June of this year I wrote an article on limestone and its paranormal properties. In it the subject of haunted objects is briefly discussed as being explainable through quantum entanglement. This phenomenon creates what I am coining the term " paranormal plankton", and also offers an explanation as to how an object can take on emotional energy.

"On a molecular level, any object is able to take on energy or mass and incorporate it into itself through particle exchange. These objects can hold this energy for either short or long periods of time. One very strong type of energy that objects can absorb is emotional - the same energy you can feel after you walk into a room where a heated argument has occurred. The air is thick and feels electrically charged and you can almost feel the static permeating your skin. That's because it is." By keeping this in mind, what can be said about poltergeist activity?

Let's first take a look at a perhaps not so well-known case of a very strong poltergeist that moved into a auto repair shop in the country of Wales back in the 1980's.

Cardiff Bay, Bristol Channel
The Cardiff Poltergeist - Mower Services

This case is one that would even have the skeptics scratching their head because there were so many witnesses to the activity. Paranormal events were confirmed by "police officers, insurance officials, academics, a priest, and a large number of Mower Service's customers." This story is very unique for such an establishment.

John and Pat Matthews, along with brother Fred, were running this automobile repair center not far from the shores that you see in the above photo. The center had built up quite a loyal group of customers from the Cardiff area. They were doing pretty good. One day, however, things began to change:

      "John and Fred were doing some repairs on a car in the workshop area of their premises when suddenly they heard a tremendous clattering coming from the roof. Assuming that children were outside throwing stones, Fred went to investigate, only to find the surrounding area to be deserted." 

This event was the beginning of what John said was when the "spirit decided to move in." The new tenant, who was given the friendly name of "Pete", would, over the next few months, end up creating nearly all of the classic activities associated with poltergeists:

  • Disappearing Objects.  "Money would come up missing, then turn-up stuck to the ceiling or wedged in a crack in the wall."
  • Objects Levitating or Thrown.  It was documented that rocks, pens, and coins were thrown, sometimes on request.
  • Knocks, footsteps, rappings.     There were multiple instances of footsteps and playful child-like tricks played on family members or customers.
  • Scents and Odors.     Mysterious, overpowering smells were reported.
  • Electrical Interference.  
  • Physical Attacks.   A "large, heavy brick was hurled at Fred, narrowly missing his face."
  • Objects Powering Up.   Clocks, radios, and televisions are known to suddenly turn on, many times these items haven't worked in years or they aren't plugged in or have batteries in them. In the Cardiff case, motors and generators were found running overnight with no possible means of this happening.

From A Scientific View, How Is This Possible?

Although there are actually seven classic traits to poltergeists, I only want to focus on two of them - moving objects and disappearing objects. 

How it could be possible for "Pete" to throw objects, many times on command? An experiment was set up by several individuals at the Cardiff auto shop whereby:

     "All doors and exits were then locked and the remaining individuals sat around a large circular table holding hands. The group then requested the spirit to make its presence known and sure enough a stone suddenly landed on the table. This prompted one of those present to suggest that the group should record the responses by writing them down. Seconds later a pen was thrown from nowhere, again landing on the table."

These types of activities were performed very often by this intelligent entity. In an effort to quell "Pete", an expert by the name of David Fontana was called in to investigate. This report became very well-known and was published in the Journal of Psychical Research. I am in the process of obtaining this report and will share more information in a future newsletter once and if I have it in my hands.

The Hypothesis...

I'm hoping that I can make an undisputed assertion that an entity is made up of something. What that something actually is comprised of is still a mystery. Most entities can be seen with the physical eye to some degree (many times with peripheral vision) and so I would assert that they, just like you and I, are made up of atoms. The only difference is that we inhabit a physical body while they do not.

Because an entity does not have a physical body, it is able to move through walls, objects, and even people themselves. If you have ever felt a sudden intense spine tingle with no obvious source - well, that is an entity moving through you and disrupting your natural energies. I feel this phenomenon quite frequently.

This ability to pass through physical objects also gives them an ability to entangle with them. By placing a hand, foot, or other body part through a hairbrush, as an example, the entity will thus entangle with the brush on a subatomic level. This will happen within nanoseconds and so there is no real visible time between contact and movement of the object. Motion is fluid.

According to the properties of entanglement:

     "an action performed on one atom will reverberate on any atom entangled with it, even if the particles are far apart." - Scientific American

Entities therefore can put their subatomic imprint into an object and then manipulate the object because of this principle. The hairbrush then can be moved or thrown just as if it were performed in the physical realm.

Emotional energies like anger will increase the strength of entanglement (and as such the force and speed of a thrown object) just like an increase in the intensity of light can create multiple entanglements. A link to Technology Review supporting this claim can be seen by clicking here.

More Supporting Evidence

There are several ways that a poltergeist can be removed from a property or from an individual. The most common techniques involve a simple ritual of burning sage and allowing the smoke to ward off the entity. Some instances require the invitation of a priest to drive the entity from the premises.

There is yet another way to end a poltergeist, and this technique was used in the Cardiff case. After Pete became extremely disruptive, John, Fred and his wife finally decided to move from the Mower Services premises. Pete, not to be deterred, followed Fred home and began the poltergeist activity there.

     "In a final attempt to rid himself  of his supernatural sidekick, Fred consulted with a medium, who advised him to smash or break any items that the poltergeist moved or interfered with. Sure enough, this method worked and Pete never returned to visit Fred again."

Based on the information given on entanglement, it would seem that this phenomenon can work in both directions. Just as Pete is able to entangle with objects and make them move or be thrown, so too can the object affect Pete. By smashing or breaking the entangled object, Pete's subatomic link is broken and thus ends the poltergeist activity. What happens to one directly affects the other.

The Enduring Mystery of Teleportation

In my last newsletter that many of you received this photo should look familiar. It is taken from the television series Star Trek, which made its climax during the 1970's and 80's. I love the show and have many fond memories of watching James T. Kirk fist fighting with the aliens, Spock dropping someone with his classic neck pinch, or McCoy saying, "dammit Jim, I'm just a doctor!".

The idea of teleporting someone across miles of space seemed to be an impossible task 40 years ago and was left to the minds of science fiction writers. Today, however, we are making great strides to make this ability a reality. To quote Brian Clegg:

     "...entanglement makes it possible to transfer a particle, and potentially an object, from one place to another without passing through the space in between."

This would assert that there is a natural law (or probably more like several laws) that allow for teleportation to be possible in our realm as well as the spiritual realm. Even Albert Einstein reluctantly admitted that there is some merit to this mystery of entanglement and all of its possibilities. He called it "Spukhafte Fernwirkungen" 

This, of course, would have to prove that Einstein was wrong in certain theorems, especially his Theory of Relativity. We are well on our way to doing just that. A link supporting this claim can be found here.

The ability for an unseen or barely seen spirit to move or launch an object through the properties of quantum physics could be a possible explanation. Can we come up with a better explanation?

How About You, Poltergeist Entity?

     "...the quantum world has an extra unseen dimension through which apparently spatially separated objects can communicate as if they were side by side." - The God Effect

Within many poltergeist activities there are reports of objects disappearing either altogether or they will reappear in another location. This really can only happen in two ways:
  • Either the object is physically moved through the air and set down in another place or,
  • Entities somehow have an ability to manipulate the powers of teleportation to relocate objects much like a magician. 
In many ways disappearing objects do strongly resemble sleight of hand. How an entity can remove something without a trace and then have it reappear in another spot is a mystery that even quantum mechanics will have a tough time explaining, but with more research I would love to crack that nut. 

Closing Thoughts...

I believe that there are natural laws in the spirit realm that are easily accessible by entities but completely a mystery to our world. One huge way to better make sense of it all is through studying life at the subatomic level in our physical world and then seeing if and how these same principles can be applied to the spiritual world. The goal is to try and better understand life as it is here and to finally decipher the mysterious world on the other side of the invisible veil.

  1. Great article, Tim. (And loved the linked article on the 8-photon entanglement experiment as well!) "Spukhafte Fernwirkungen" is indeed a giddy idea. Physicist David Boehm has an interesting take on this as well, suggesting it's a matter of perspective, like looking at a fish from the corner of an aquarium and and seeing the fish's image refracted onto both glass plates so it looks like two fish instead of one. Maybe our limited 3D perspective is what causes the illusion, and if we had tge perspective of additional dimensions, we'd understand the laws of entanglement. Similarly, those other dimensions might account for intelligences we interpret as ghosts from our 3D-locked perspective. This might be tangential to the quantum line of argument you present (or maybe not, since "higher" order laws might reconcile the discrepancies of Relativity and QM -- or maybe that's an M-Theory discussion instead!) But again, fun stuff to read, and found your article stimulating. Thanks!

    1. Thank you Kym-n-Mark for your insightful comment and the kind words! I really like your mention of David Boehm and his perspective on how we see the world in which we live. The aquarium example touches nicely on the very subject my wife and I were just discussing. She proposed that by analyzing the physiology of the eye, one might be better able to grasp an understanding of how we interpret and understand the spirit world. Why can we see things with our peripheral vision and not with our direct vision? I think there is something to unearth with this line of thinking and I plan to incorporate your thoughts into this research as well. Thank you for the catalyst!

  2. This is the first time i am reading your post and admire that you posted article which gives users lot of information regarding particular topic thanks for this share.
