A teenage girl was experiencing a lot of poltergeist activity: objects falling off of shelves, even plumbing fixtures crashing down in her vicinity. People came from all over to study her. At one point, a Japanese crew set up cameras at different angles around the room. One evening, a cup flew across the room, crashed into the wall, and fell to pieces on the floor. The camera crew checked their footage the next day. What the unbiased "eye" of the camera "saw" was a flash of light crossing the room, then a cup smashing against the wall, and falling to the ground in pieces.

The mind is a very powerful editor.

Infrared cameras can pickup even more too!

There's a very entertaining older novel by Paul Gallico which deals with poltergeist and other apparently supernatural activities in an English country house: "Too Many Ghosts".

Great read and well-researched.

In the months before my mother passed away, she would talk to people we couldn't see or hear. Greet, chat, laugh, pause as if she were listening to them, then reply to them. I finally asked who they were, and she told me (even spelling the names). When I researched it, I found they were all people from the happiest time of her life and all were deceased. I believe the very old and very young are able to see and hear through the veil, as it were, separating heaven and earth. It was amazing and very reassuring.

It seems from the OP's responses that she is not seeking a non-supernatural response, in fact it appears she gets quite upset when a plausible explanation is discussed - but this is called "private speech" or "self talk" and is quite normal in toddlers up to pre-schoolers.
It's actually good development behavior.

I dismiss this as another case of "confirmation bias" - OP wants to believe in the supernatural and thus looking anywhere and everywhere for proof of it's existence. Everything is pretty much explained in her below admittance:

I'd have a psychic or exorcist check just to be sure.

Most likely since he is just beginning to learn to talk (you said he was slightly delayed) he is trying out his conversations including laughter. Do you ever study a long time on something only to dream of it and sometimes talk in your sleep? It is the learning process and why you hear young children screaming but obviously not in distress, they are just trying out their voices. Since he is not crying and falls back to sleep, just go with it. Now, if he tells you about some man or woman or child in the room at night who he has fun with...

OMG!!!!! That could be it! Make sure the window is secure!


Mom, I would suggest maybe sleeping in the room with your child for a night or two, to really find out what is happening. Maybe just tell your child you want to have a sleepover. Or perhaps move the child into your room for awhile. I'm getting chills just even thinking about this!

Yup. It's more common for kids to do it than for kids not to do it.
