Continuation of 'Ideas of How Dowsing Works'----
A -Object Emitting Energy
I believe that all objects emit electromagnetic radiation continuously. There are some research findings to back up this claim. Could the radiation that is emitted from objects (both animate and inanimate) possibly be a "blackbody" type radiation, or a near infrared type? A blackbody is considered to be a perfect absorber and emitter of energy.....everything it absorbs it will emit back with no energy lost. Whatever type of electromagnetic energy radiation this is, it is not in the visible spectrum.....that is, we don't see it as light.
This radiated energy appears to be very weak and somewhat focused in its path......it appears to be like a curtain of particles that primarily radiates upward, at least as detected by the dowser.
>>Initial Test -- First, let's do a normal dowsing test on the setup that you have arranged. Holding the dowsing rods in the normal position, walk slowly over the test wire lying on the surface. Your dowsing results should be similar to mine. Your rods should cross inward or divert outward indicating that your body has detected the radiating energy from the wire.
Next, slowly walk over the target on a lateral path (longways). My rods move and continue to maintain a signal detection position until I step away from the end of the target.
>>The following test spurred my thinking about the nature of the 'signal' received from the dowsing target. I was able to set up the dowsing target in a basement room that I could completely darken. If you do this test, it is helpful to have an assistant.....that is, someone who could turn a light in the room on and off.
Assume the dowsing position in front of the target wire located on the floor. Have the light in the room turned off and slowly walk forward in the dowsing position, carefully stepping onto the target wire. When you reach that point where your body is centered over the wire target, have your assistant turn on the light in the room and note the position of the rods.
My Results: my rods indicated that the signal (radiation) had triggered the rod movement even in the dark room.
This test had me thinking about the nature of the radiation.....it apparently was not in the visible spectrum and yet the body was sensing the radiation both in a lighted and dark room test situation.
As a variation on this dark room dowsing test, I positioned a 'sportsman's' headlight with a red LED light beam aimed across the target. I had the red LED light beam turned on and aimed in the general direction of the target. Then I had the light in the room turned off and did a dowsing test over the target. My rods did not register a signal detection. I used the same test setup in a lighted room and still did not register a signal detection.
(Note: I used a 3-light sportsman's headlamp that normally is strapped on one's head for hands-free work-- ---the headlamp had white LEDs, red LEDs, and a white incandescent lamp; cost was about $15)
As a followup on the above red LED light test, I positioned a green laser pointer with its beam generally focused onto the target area in a lighted room. When I dowsed the target, I did not register a signal detection.
(Note: specs of green laser pointer used: 5 Mw, 532 nm wavelength, green; cost was about $10)
I discovered the same signal 'interference' when I used a TV remote control and held down a control button on the remote while pointing it at the target area. I dowsed the target with one hand holding the L-rod in the dowsing position and the other hand holding down a button on the TV remote control and aimed in the general direction of the target. Again, no signal detection, and no rod movement.
I have also observed in my outdoor tests under sunlight that the headlight red LED light beam does not appear to 'override' or interfere with a radiating signal from a target. The stronger beam laser pointer light, however, did negate any signal detection in an outdoors dowsing test.
(A Side Note: you can hold down a button on a TV remote control and look at the lens and not see any visible light. If you press a button and aim the TV remote control at your cell phone camera (or aim it at a digital camera), and the distance between the two is very close, you can see the flickering light beam of the TV remote control through the cell phone/camera viewfinder......a good way to test to see if the batteries are sufficiently charged in the remote control.)
The implications of the test of an LED and laser pointer light aimed at the area of radiation emitting from a given target appears to demonstrate that certain types of visible light interfere with this non-visible electromagnetic energy field. The TV remote control I used actually did not have a visible light beam (except as detected by the digital camera lens/viewfinder).
