I have noticed something through my studies and research. I'd say a good 80% of pure poltergeist activity, (that is, as opposed to combinations of apparitions and potergeist activity,) seems to involve a teen or pre-teen in the house or establishment where the activity happens.
Now here's a question... are these people manifesting something that is already there or are they manifesting something all by themselves? A psychokinetic call for attention?
I am reminded about a Ouija experiment I sort-of performed in high school. Some of my friends were desperatly trying to communicate using a Ouija and I suggested that since we were "recieving" rather odd messages, we try concentrating on one object or other thing. We selected a table and lo and behold! The "spirit" came through and started giving us relatively coherent messages. When we asked his/her/it's name, it replied J-O-H-N C-A-R-P-E-N-T-E-R. Hmmmmmm. Looking at a wooden table and John Carpeneter is our "contact"? Also intesting to note was that the more recent "teen-scream" flick out in theatres was the re-make of "The Thing" directed by... John Carpenter. Okay, so it's not much but we all swore that the pointer did seem to move on it's own accord several times and the atmosphere did change in the room. Personally, I think we summoned up our own spirit as opposed to the spirit of a long dead woodworker or a horror film director.
Still, one of the clan using the board seemed to think we had just allowed a channel for the spirit. But as far as the answers we got, an appocolyptic war did not (to the best of my knowledge) break out in 1987 and I was not abducted when I was 24 years old by Arabs. So much for our "answers".

BUT! I admit, I saw that plastic pointer fly off the board with no pressure on it whatsoever.
So, do people conjour up their own poltergeists? I'd like to know what you think.
