32 years after the original poltergeist incident in Enfield, researchers taking a second look at the data have uncovered a groundbreaking difference between the sounds of the original transcripts and compared them to other more traditional sounds. What they’ve found is that paranormal disturbances bear an unusual characteristic that is entirely unique to the supernatural.
This sonic fingerprint present in EVP and other data gathered during the paranormal investigation at Enfield suggests that the sounds could not have been hoaxed by someone sitting or standing by and making the sounds on their own. The unusual fingerprint has many similarities with other EVP discovered by Dr. Barrie Colvin earlier this year. The result is very similar to the findings of Dr. Colvin earlier this year when he discovered a similarity between various recorded EVPs that were not found in other fake recordings created by the control group. Dr. Colvin has been researching the topic for quite some time and has taken the paranormal field into one of its first experiments that is readily reproduceable by other scientists.
In 1977 the Enfield poltergeist incident was making headlines all across Britain as two little girls, two boys, and their mother were terrorized by a mysterious entity that would make objects fly through the air, and even possess the oldest girl, Margaret and speak with an older man’s voice. Though the case was not considered a traditional poltergeist case, this was the term commonly used for lack of a better one. If the case were to be reviewed today, many would insist poltergeists are the result of pent up psychic energy brought on by emotional stress. Still, the incident is one of the earliest and most iconic events of its kind.
And the voices Margaret manifested are one of the focuses of Dr. Colvin’s research. Mr. Gary Playfair who originally recorded the incidents has officially welcomed the research, proclaiming that it is a much needed shot in the arm that will bring the paranormal field forward to the next step.
As for the Enfield house, there has not been a single peep of paranormal activity in the house since September of 1978 when just as mysteriously as the poltergeist appeared, it suddenly vanished never to be seen again. The unexplained incident was and still is one of the most well documented cases of a poltergeist invading a home. The incredible amount of evidence captured by Mr. Playfair and other witnesses has weathered the test of time surprisingly well and left no stone unturned. Witnesses to the events range everywhere from the family itself to Mr. Playfair, and even passersby walking by the house from day to day. One of the most dramatic incidents saw Margaret hovering past the window of her upstairs bedroom and seen by a witness on the ground. And between the knocking incidents, which communicated with the investigators and others in the area and the voice, there will no doubt be plenty left to keep Dr. Colvin busy in the future.
