The specific instructions will always generate a multiple of 9
42=4+2=6 42-6=36 36=9X4
29= 2+9=11 29-11=18 18= 9X2
The symbols at all multiples of 9, that is 18, 27, 36, 45, etc. are the same. Everytime you click the crystal ball, the symbols shuffle, and a new symbol appears at the multiples of nine.
So it appears to have 'read your mind,' but is in fact a function of the specific properties of the mathematical operation.
