Well, dont know what to really say to the link, other than the fact that I have first hand experience that divining (or witching as we call it) really
I am a geologist, and have been involved in many drilling projects. It was SOP for my driller to *witch* the area prior to sinking a bit, just to make
sure no utilities were in the area (and yes, we did have all utilities notified prior to drilling). I didnt believe it the first time, but after many
months in the field, it came to be a trusted part of our routine. He showed me how to do it, and I didnt think it would happen, but it did, with no
help from me.
I use 2 copper rods, bent in an L shape, held loosely in my hands, pointing forward. When I center these rods over a pipe (steel, iron, PVC, rubber)
they twist (yes, can feel it in my hands, no motive force from me whatsoever) towards each other. We calculated an approximate 95% accuracy rate.
I cannot explain any mechanism that would account for this, but to say that it does in fact happen!
Anyone else have similar experiences?
