Old English wyrd ‘destiny’, of Germanic origin. The adjective (late Middle English) originally meant ‘having the power to control destiny’, and was used especially in the Weird Sisters, originally referring to the Fates, later the witches in Shakespeare's Macbeth ; the latter use gave rise to the sense ‘unearthly’ (early 19th century).

The Ouija board story sent chills down my spine.. Oh my goodness, that was scary.... truly creepy.
My kids once mentioned a Ouija board and I told them I forbid it in my house and advised them to forbid it in theirs
too. I said there are some things that are just better left alone. I know some people don't believe in it, but I sure do.
The session ended there. But I never said GOODBYE, as is advised (stupid me knew nothing of this then).
Has many paranormal hot spots of activity.
Second floor – Witnesses have seen a garish Civil War hospital scene for a moment, when the elevator opened up. Probably the result of residual energy.
Guests and maids have noticed blood stains that appear and disappear at will on bedding in some rooms.
Entities of doctors and wounded soldiers have made themselves visible to the living, sometimes reaching out for help. Moans and groans of the wounded are heard
After the Nazi rise to power in Germany had increased antisemitism in the city, a silent boycott of Jewish firms began. The first steps of the Nazis in Innsbruck after the annexation of Austria (1938) were "Aryanization" of all Jewish firms, confiscation of the community archives, and seizure of the passports of all Jews. The institutions of the community were able to continue their activities for a time but in the fall of 1938 the community was ordered to disband and the rabbinate was dissolved. The Jews prepared for emigration. On *Kristallnacht (Nov. 10, 1938) the houses of all Jews still living in Innsbruck were raided and demolished, and the synagogue and the cemetery desecrated; 18 Jews were attacked and arrested and three community leaders brutally murdered. Subsequently nearly all Jews left Innsbruck, some of them settling in Ereẓ Israel.

All I know is there is some form of truth regarding non physical intelligence. Frankly, realizing cognition after physical death might be possible is not completely comforting. Training one's mind might be the only important task... it might be futile... but either way, it likely warrants more attention than Western civilization informs us.
