If I've read your post correctly, the event took place in your parents' home, in which you'd previously witnessed a number of paranormal
occurrences in common with your sceptical father (?).
In which case, the flying jewellery box was yet another such event.
You suspect ghostly/poltergeist activity, yet also suspect that readers of your post will discount or be sceptical of your appraisal (?), As in:
"If ghosts and such don't exist then what other forces are at play here?Could this be evidence of unintentional telekinetic ability? Or could
something have occurred in space time creating a brief 'wave' or some other 'force' capable of moving the object? "
Or you invite speculation regarding possible other forces as being responsible (?)
Well, it could well be, as you suggest, unintentional telekinetic ability. And your other suggestion, regarding 'blip' in space-time is equally
possible, I guess.
Really, though, a list of the (1) other paranormal-type events that you've witnessed in that same house would be helpful, along with (2) information
about those present on each occasion, and if possible (3) an indication of the timing of events (every month, each new moon or whatever is pertinent)
plus whatever information you can provide concerning (4)possible trigger events (arguments, anxiety, discussion of your resident 'thing',
sceptical or encouraging atmospheres, etc. etc.)
Some dwellings do seem given to paranormal type events and as you say, your parents' house appears to be one of these, providing you with the
opportunity to observe, even though as yet you don't know what, if anything, is responsible. As a rule though, objects don't usually launch
themselves across the room with no apparent cause. Your experience with the jewellery box struck you as having no reasonable cause, or you wouldn't
have posted the experience here.
You say: ' If ghosts and such don't exist ....'. But based in my own experience (and those of hundreds of thousands of individuals' accounts in
the past few thousand years alone) ghosts do exist. Whether or not they throw items is not something I'm qualified to judge, because the
ghosts I saw didn't do that. Maybe they do ?
Thankfully, I haven't experienced poltergeist activity, but what you've reported in the OP does sound similar to reports of same, or at least to the
early manifestations of it.
Maybe you need to consider how you'd feel if poltergeist activity escalated? Because apparently, polt activity increases if it's given attention.
So whilst isolated paranormal events may be interesting, continual poltergeist activity may become quite frightening (although, having just re-read
your post to learn this event took place a few years ago, it would seem there's been no escalation).
