There are some fascinating books on the subject by T.C. Lethbridge. His experiments with the pendulum went much further than simple yes/no stuff -
he discovered that you could "tune" the pendulum to different things by changing the length of the pendulum cord.
For example, say you want to locate gold: you swing the pendulum over a piece of gold and shorten the cord until it suddenly goes into a circular
motion - that is the optimal "rate" (as he called it) for gold. The same goes not only for substances, but for abstract things like emotions,
diseases, colors, temperatures, etc. Everything seems to have a unique vibration that the pendulum can tune in to.
The most fascinating thing of all was Lethbridge's table of pendulum rates in which he lists all the different things that he found to share the same
pendulum length - when you see how various things are clearly related to each other (colors, substances, emotions, places, etc) and the orderly way
they are spread out over the vibrational "spectrum", it's quite amazing.
