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

D. Contact #1 Component: Let me bring the hands/thumbs into the dowsing process.  The thumb is the most important digit on the hand.  It contributes about 40 to 50% of the total grasping/pinching function to the hand.  It appears to me that the thumb's function in the dowsing process is that of a neural pathway contributing 'pulses', rather than a physical grasping role.

Assuming that you have been performing the normal dowsing process with your hands gripping the handles of the L-rods and your thumbs have been lightly pressed against the handles, try this  variation on the position of the thumbs.

Test D-1: With a normal dowsing setup, approach and walk over the target with your hands gripping the L-rods handles, but pull your thumbs away from contact with the rods.
My results: rods do not move.
Person #1: same as above.
Person #2: The rods moved.

Test D-2: Next, do the dowsing test with one thumb in the normal contact position and the other thumb pulled away from contacting the handle.
My results: the rod moves on the side where the thumb contacts the handle, but the rod does not move on the side where the thumb is removed from handle contact.
Person #1: same as above.
Person #2: Both rods moved.

Test D-3: Change thumb contact sides and do the test again. 
My results: the rod only moves on the thumb contact side, not on the non-contact side.
(
Persons #1 & #2 not tested)

Here is an odd finding relative to the thumb contact test.
Test D-4: With the normal dowsing setup, tuck your thumbs down into your hands (fists) which are contacting and holding the rods and walk across the target.
My results: the rods move in the opposite direction from normal (that is, in my case, the rods crossed instead of diverted), although with a weaker and slower rod movement.
Person #1: same as above.
Person #2: The rods crossed normally and not in an opposite direction.

Optional Test D-5:  Wrap some regular kitchen tinfoil around your right thumb and do a dowsing test.
My results: the rod on the tinfoil-wrapped right thumb does not move, the rod moves on the other non-wrapped thumb side.  Try this on the left thumb with the right thumb uncovered........the tinfoil appears to interfere with the energy transfer from the wrapped thumb to the rod handle.
Person #1: not tested.
Person #2: Rod moved normally.

Optional Test D-6: I also have performed a series of single L-rod tests holding the extra length rod handle with both hands and the thumbs, one hand above the other, and thumbs positioned in different configurations (contacting handle, pulled back from handle, tucked into hand against handle).  You might want to do this series of tests and note which topmost hand/thumb appears to generate the strongest/quickest rod movement and which direction  the rods move.
