I'll make the runes with some beach stones.

I looked up dominos and seems there are different kinds;

Double 6
Double 9
Double 12
Double 15

What should I be using?

I also don't have a crystal or sphere. Any idea where I could acquire?

many thanks!

I picked up a box of Double six dominoes.

I also got some sort of translucent white crystal sphere about 2" in diameter that I can't remember the name of and a pointy crystal that looks like some sort of ice mountain, again with the name forgetting.

I also collected a big bag of flat beach stones to use as runes. Will try etching them tonight or on the weekend...

Think I'm in good shape.

Assigment 2
1) What do you think divination is, and do you think it is real?

I think Divination is a conversation/interaction with your subconscious, universal mind, deity of of choice, atomic resonance, glue that hold the universe together or whatever you want to call it.

I think it's real if you use it to effect some sort of change. If not it's just entertainment.

2) For the remainder of the class I want you to make a post in your assigment thread entitled Ethics. In that post I want you to write down what you think your ethics using dvination are. It does not matter if you have experience or not just write. Each time we do a section if something new comes up for you I want you to add to your post.. By the end of the class I want to see a revised personal ethics list .

Personal Ethics

I really don't know where to start. ummmm......yeah I don't know. I'll think about it.

Well in order for me to pass you on this part of the assigment you at least have to think of one thing... then after that you can add to it.

I would never use divination as a means to fleece people
I would never use divination as a way to manipulate people for personal benefit.

I will look at divination as a riddle or a metaphor and not take the results too seriously.

I will look at divination as a riddle or a metaphor and not take the results too seriously. But I hope you will take them seriously enough and listen . :)
