Questions that don't work
– found by reason and experience
– the answers will be unreliable (try them!)
– you will get answers but they likely won't make sense or be randomly wrong
– there may be other categories of problem
Questions that don't have a Yes or No answer:
"Should I go left or right?"
Questions that aren't askable at the time:
"Will this work?"
The future doesn't exist yet so the answer is unknowable or is a probability.
Dowsing isn't fortune-telling.
Answers you want to be true:
"Is this answer impressive?"
Showing off almost guarantees it goes wrong.
Answers that would make you rich:
"So where's the gold hidden?"
Personal gain seems to obscure or switch off how it works,
as if there's a greater strength or priority
– "need not greed".
Questions that take dowsing for granted:
"Will I always get that answer?"
This affects testing dowsing empirically.
Questions you could answer by conventional methods:
"What would that meter say?"
See the previous item.
Questions that aren't meaningful in your life:
"What answer would Bill get?"
This affects testing dowsing objectively.
Questions that are unethical to ask (this is basically about invading personal space, which affects your approach):
See "Can I? May I? Should I?" in "how to use".
Questions that aren't clear or are ambiguous:
"Um, err, is it?"
Garbage in, garbage out.
Questions that are circular:
"Does dowsing work?"
Er, think about it :)
