Continuation of 'Ideas of How Dowsing Works'----

B. Detecting Component: Next I will discuss the eyes as a unique and important component of the  dowsing process.  General information available in the literature indicates that the visual senses contribute over 80 per cent of the sensory input into the brain (as compared to the hearing, touching, tasting, smelling, and other sensory inputs).  The research that I have read indicated that the eyes are able to detect only visible light.  (Note: some animals are reported in the literature to have eyes, sensory pits, etc. that detect non-visible light.)

My premise is that the eyes do 'register' some type of non-visible electromagnetic radiation and that the brain processes this detected signal unconsciously and sends signals via the neural pathways to the thumbs and externally to the body aura, and thus activating the L-rod movement.

First, let me describe basic tests that appear to support the premise that the eyes are the portals for the signal input to the human body.

Below I describe a test to show the relationship between the position of the eyes over the target and the curtain of radiation emitted from the target object.

Test B-1: With a normal dowsing setup, approach the target, but lean your head/eyes back as far as you can without losing balance.  Let your toes cross the target then stop your forward motion.  Slowly lean head/eyes forward until they cross the target.
My results = when my toes/feet cross the target, I don't have any rod movement, but when I lean my head/eyes forward and across the target, the rods move.
Person #1 results = same as above.
Person #2 results = This person had L-rod movement about 12 inches or so before reaching the target wire.

Other basic tests to demonstrate the function of the eyes as detectors:

Test B-2: With a normal dowsing setup, walk over the target wire with both eyes closed.
My results = no rod movement.
Person #1 results = same as above.
Person #2 results = This person had rod movement even with the eyes closed.

Test B-3: With a normal dowsing setup, walk over the target wire with the right eye closed and the left eye open.
My results = right rod does not move but the left rod moves.
Person #1 results = same as above.
Person #2 results = Right rod moves even with right eye closed.

Test B-4: Do the same test with the left eye closed and the right eye open.
My results = left rod does not move but the right rod moves.
Person #1 results = same as above.
Person #2 results = Left rod moves even with left eye closed.

For myself and person #1, these basic tests of closing both eyes, or one eye or the other, appear to demonstrate the importance of the eyes in detecting/registering a signal and triggering an unconscious response in the brain and neural pathways.  There also appears to be an association between the right eye and the movement of the right L-rod with a similar association on the left side of the body.
With person #2, closing both eyes or one eye or the other appeared to make little difference.......the rods still registered a signal.
