Ouija boards...
    #978448 - 10/21/02 01:13 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Anyone have any thoughts on these? How do they work...? I've never tried one before. I'm too scared  :crazy:

I think it reads somewhere on the box
"For entertainment purposes only."

I agree.

no personal experience but ive heard weird stories from many people.. they all really believed something supernatural took place.

one friend of mine said they asked a spirit how they were moving the little thingy and the spirit replied that they werent actually moving it but sort of like posessing the participant's minds and very subtley channeling their body movements.

i have no idea myself...
i know that people will believe what they want to believe, but that's not an answer

Yes. Read 'Ouija: The Most Dangerous Game' by Stoker Hunt.

There was a decent discussion in OTD about this. I won't double post what I already said there. Go look:

My personal opinion is that everything has as much meaning as you apply to it. You think its evil? It is then. You think its a silly meaningless game, it is then. That is my opinion.

i dont think i'll ever try it... looks quite scary indeedy. i think its a channelling related practice too, like Grav mentionned. heh. for that only reason i will never play around with it. some consider it as a game- im not sure how to define oui-ja myself - but it is from the kind of stuff that i wouldnt try, to avoid useless troubles lol.

"for entertainment purposes only".. whose entertainment?

Yes, they appear to work - two acquintencas whom I trust not to lie (ofcourse they can) assured me it appears to work - and is at least consciously not made up.
Just like tarot cards and I Tjing can be the manifested synchronicities Jung and M. L. von Franz wrote about but with a more 'usable' interface. Just like other oracles, or maybe even more so they can be WYSIWYG; self-deluding... or it can bring you closer to your higher self. If messages appear they appear to come from somewhere deep in your unconscious or superconscious... so far removed from your waking consciousness that you might think a different entity is speaking to you.. and in a way of course this is true - like we are all one and seperate at the same time.

One very curious example of the use of the Ouijja board in this day and age I found to be the Cassiopaean channelings... I don't necessarily believe what they write about our reality being Matrix like and that there is a hidden meaning or plot underlying the worldscene, and that all of us can be Matrix vectors - but it is interesting that the material is akin to what Steiner, Castaneda and Gurdjieff have been saying. More interesting I think it is that they somehow attract people that can write a bit more balanced and serious then most new age mumbo jumbo channel lovers:

"Decoding Signs"
http://dreambean.com/decodingsigns.html
"Shells of Reality"
http://www.cassiopaea.org/cass/sciullo.htm

Because of the situation in the US at the moment, which they see as the final stages of the Matrix Control System getting in line for the big fight for our collective consciousness they decided to move to Europe and put their house up in a lottery (chance: 1/4000). I think if you'd win and ask nicely they have an old orginal cassiopaean Ouija board laying around.

they work even better when every one is drunk. and the ones that glow in the dark are suposed to channel the most energy because of the chemicals that make them glow. but you know what makes them work the best.... is when you move them yourself and everybody around you believes that is is a spirt or somthing moving it. it is fun but you have to be very careful not to get caught or then every body else will stop believeing in them like I do.....

how they work? well a bunch of suckers sit there with their fingers on the thing while the smart guy slides the thing around and makes up a bunch of stupid bullshit to freak everybody else out.

they're BS.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Lol. How would someone explain the planchette (sp...) flying off of the board when no one is touching it? I think it is really paranormal channeling shit... I know I'm not going to fuck with one!

I thought you need at least 2 people?

*edit: I looked on my antique board and indeed the instructions say two people.

It won't work otherwise..
Both people will claim not to be moving it when one asks "Are you moving it????" but really someone always is.

I asked the ouija board who was moving it and it spelled out "sdam husan".
And I was alone too!
