What is a ouija board
- Basically, it’s a board, such as the one pictured above, you have to put your hand on a planchette, and the planchette is supposed to move around by itself and send you messages from the beyond
- The concept of “planchette writing” as a means of contacting the dead dates back to the Song Dynasty in China (1100 AD)
- But the ouija board itself doesn’t have ancient roots
- Ouija Boards had their roots in the Spiritual movement in the U.S that began during the 1840’s
- Elijah Bond and others decided to take this board and turn it into a patented toy during 1890’s
Is it real, is it dangerous?
- Some people have had some extremely bad encounters with this. Some say how it can unlock a portal into another dark world and let things in, you never want.
- Is it all in their minds or is it something genuine?
- Who really knows the absolute truth, but here is where you can read about people and their experiences
Is there a scientific explanation?
- Yes, there is! It’s called the ideometer effect, or basically the idea that your involuntary/unconsciously moving the planchette yourself!
- Here are some experiments and lots more information that support this notion
Fun and games
- Here’s an online version of the ouija. Maybe it’ll give you an idea of how it works. Don’t worry the online version isn’t “haunted”, just something to pass the time if you are bored!
