I'm curious about something. If the symbology really is of no mater, other than yes, no and unknown then does the material utilized become of importance? Sounds simplistic I realize but while I am not overly familiar with them I have heard of other similar systems where the yes, no, and unknown are not nearly as important as the material of each answer.

For instance, yes enscribed upon quartz. No enscribed upon some dark material such as flint or obsidian and unknown upon a conglomarate type of stone to represent the uncertanity of forming elements or elements that are still in motion.

Just to give an example of how I was shown.

You ask the question: let's say will I gain love in the near future?

toss the stones then read not only the words but also the lay order of the stones.

For discussion lets say the stones form an unknown farthers out, the yes and no stones touching each other. Then reading from outer most positin first.

The chances in the immediate future are unclear and still in motion. While it is possible the probability is slim based upon the yes and no stones touching each other. Then if the light is heavier reflected from one above the other then the probability might be closer to yes as that stone was more reflective of the light and caused you to focus upon it more.

Part of the purpose of the quartz being reflective of yes but also of birthing and light. Inversely, the obsidian reflective of engulfing and deep currents.. A conglamorate should be about 50 / 50 in light and dark colored elements.

Then what is the significance of calling it 'Alien rune casting'? Why put the thread in the runes section if it has nothing to do with runes? If it has nothing to do with aliens and nothing to do with runes then I don't see why you called it what you did. You could have just spared yourself a lot of trouble and us a lot of mental agony by calling it something like 'Three stone divination' and putting it in General Occult or something.

Just sayin'...

monsno: I think that if you incorporate those factors, It moves away from the project itself. Personally I wouldnt trust any answers from this system. Also if you ask any questions online then all he has to say is maybe and you cant say that the system was wrong no matter what the answer is.

to prove my point:

Will I be getting $5000 today?

I sent cran the answer in a pm.

I'm not saying I would use it nor actually trust to the law of chance and probability in it being right. Part of the reason I tried to explain what I was speaking about in more detail.

Those who cast bones or such might recognize the basic structure in what I was saying as a learning tool that is used for children many times. Granted I was sort of vague on what I said for there are many more parts to it, such as counting rolls, positions, stone shape, etc. Yep as children we were encouraged to play such games.

Though to be honest I am extremely leary of anyone that offers readings over the net.

With regard to your question of 5,000 dollars you might get it I bet I can send you that in monopoly money through pictures in a matter of minutes. After all your question did not ask about real money just an amount.

I think this falls into the discussion we were having the other day about complexity vs simplicity in magick.
