I thought this was a great idea for about 15 seconds of looking at it. lol. It is a great idea, and I think someone should build one, just for the
sake of showing that the glass/planchette will not move if a human is not using it. This device would take out all possibility of human interference,
so if it moved, it would be purely spiritual. Someone should make one and take it somewhere haunted,set it on a level surface, ask some questions and
let it do it's thing.
But then the flaw is... what if spirits cannot take control of metal and plastic. As other people mentioned, I think that they will probably have to
'come through' a person, since the machine has no conciousness or energy of it's own (besides perhaps Potential). Although this also takes out the
possibility of either proving or disproving the ouiji phenomenon, since the human variable must be left in, it seems. Unless you can train a cat, dog,
or similarly small-but-agile pet to use the Ouiji board. This way, it doesn't know language so it cannot influence it. Although getting it to sit
still and put it's paw on the thing for any period of time could be difficult. Maybe set a hamster ball up on the planchette with some sort of 360
degree wheel mechanism, so wherever the hamster rolls, the piece goes. Haha. Okay, now I'm just going off on a tangent. But I suppose if living
conciousness is needed, these are possible ways of addressing it.
I would also like to see someone make a free, Ouiji computer program that can simply make use of the computer mouse to control the piece. I can
probably get my friend to make me one in JAVA if I can figure out how it could work. And then another one that the computer answers entirely on it's
own. I'm thinking.... first a random number is generated for the length of the response, and then for each of those numbers, another number is
generated for each of those numbers which ranges from 1-26 for each letter.
You ask aloud, "Who are you?" and then press "Get Reply"
The program randomly generates "6"
Run 1. 9
Run 2. 1
Run 3. 13
Run 4. 2
Run 5. 15
Run 6. 2
These letters are then translated into corresponding letters of the alphabet.
Thus the computer's reply would be: IAMBOB
There would be a separate button which randomly generates 1 or 2, for Yes/No questions.
Thats about all I can think of at the moment.
