I just used a Ouija (Talking) Board for the second time in my life, and for the second time of my life the Planchette (pointer) remained, regrettably, still. It's amazing how many horrible stories are apocryphally accepted. If a particle board with letters on it, accompanied by a plastic 'Planchette', could affect the spirit world, I'm so incredibly surprised, as should you be, that our modern science hasn't found a way. Maybe we should tell them about the Ouija. (The Mass Produced version ... mine was purchased TODAY at Goodwill and was released by Parker Bros. in '72.)
My grandmother doesn't even know. She was there, as was my Aunt Lynn. I showed her and she literally jumped back. She's an INCREDIBLY intelligent woman, but her religious holds provided an immediate repulsion. Even the checker understood my need to camouflage the box, and very easily and willingly wrapped it in newspaper and double-bag it.
What's the issue?
Well, what's more is that I've been a tarot reader since I'm 15. Who taught me? My Aunt Lynn.
How wonderfully confusing the art of faith. An issue is solved by it, but is easily subverted when the real world intervenes... or the 'new age'.
BTW: (or PS for you purists)
I still think there is a paranormal realm, though many atheists would say they are very adamant that there isn't. I have seen some very strange anomalies in my time, and even if they weren't 'Ghosts', they were still far beyond my scientific understanding. Keep your mind open, your pockets closed and your undies clean. You'll live a fuller life, have more to spend, and when they find your body under a buss they'll only have the odor of blood; otherwise they'd have the odor of blood and a mix of slight poo and some serious crotchal smegma. ... EWWW! :P~
