Hiding in plain sight
This thread I dedicate to exposure of all of the "sanitized" occult charms and other practices that pass for party games, curiosities, and legitimate science.
How many of us have seen the wedding-ring-hanging-from-the-hair pendulum answer secret questions? The usual explanation goes something like this: "I don't know how it works, it just works!"
And I don't need to mention the Ouija board, do I? Let us be vigilant for any new games or "science" which in reality are just the old religion dressed up in a new package. And by science, I specifically have hypnotism in mind. It's no coincidence that it's not admissible in court.
I encourage anyone to share their observations and experiences, as will I in a few more installments.
