I am not being facetious or fractious, I am serious, since the hypothesis is that it is either mental on the part of the person perceiving the phenomena, or is spiritual, and in which case the proper church can remove the problem, and since neither the Jewish or Catholics were able to neutralize the property, then that only leaves the mental illness -- I'm sorry, I probably didn't understand the whole thing.
Not at all, Leonard, because then about a hundred other people, and a score of animals, would also have to be mentally unstable. Far too many people witnessed very weird things in that house. I was thinking more along the lines of the clerics trying to drive out demons, when the problem was a ghost.
This is something we (the faculty) have been discussing at school, too. As some of you know, we have a (harmless) poltergeist, for want of a better word, on the upper floor of the school, who does things like collect board markers and stand them up in a corner, open windows, hide the electric kettle, and make the clocks run counter-clockwise. At this point, there are only two or three teachers who will go up there alone. The classes gather downstairs, and go up in groups. We've only been using that floor since c. 2001, and the "problem" was there from the very beginning.
Anyway, we're moving to a new school at the end of this term, and we're wondering whether the poltergeist is going to move with us, or is somehow bound to the old building, which will probably be ripped down.
