# How to identify mysterious physics force affecting my objects?

I have some connected rigid body objects (a ragdoll). When I let physics do its thing, the ragdoll doesn't just fall - it acts as if some mysterious force hits it.

While investigating what might be the cause for it, I realized there's something (mysterious force) that affects the ragdoll. It's positioned roughly where the ragdoll is. To demonstrage this, if I duplicate the ragdoll and move the duplicate 2m to the side, the duplicate doesn't hit that mysterious force.

Here's how it looks (first 10 frames, slowed down):

For completeness, I also tried just moving everything around, and indeed there seems to be something roughly 2.5 meters above the origin:

Before I rewatch Stranger Things and look for clues there, any suggestion on how to find what's causing this strange behavior? How to identify that invisible force?

FTR, Here's the .blend file in question.

Thanks.

Note: this is a followup to a previous question I asked - at that point, I thought the problem was with the constraints between the objects.

To get rid of the copies, select Blender File as Display Mode for the outliner. Look for Objects and expand it. If you select everything in the viewport, then you can easily see in the outliner which objects are used in the viewport. Delete the other unwanted copies.
