I'm unconvinced - it seems very similar to choosing tarot cards from a pack, if you ask me.
It certainly seemed to work for Eliza and Robert so I will reserve my feelings until we see further what happens.
I don't usually believe that kind of stuff but I'm sure it will be significant in the book.
That was one of the parts that really interested me. The mind is a powerful "convincer". If you can convince people that something like the Ouija board or tarot cards can foresee the future enough to make them really believe it.... I agree that it will play a significant part in the story.
I was a bit disappointed. I thought the oracle would be something more mystical and esoteric. I agree this seems more like tarot cards. I'm hoping there's a bit more to it... I agree the oracle will play a significant role in this story.
I also found this interesting, even if I don't believe in it. I think it is central.
Reminded me of the magic 8 ball.
>8 Andrew-theQM: And horoscopes... If you're a believer, you'll find something of relevance to your own situation in what is said/written.
>9 Sergeirocks: True. If horoscopes are positive I'm happy, if they are negative I just plain ignore them.
