Other than the Ouija board, one of the most popular methods of experimentation for those that have an interest in all things paranormal is now and was for many years (in the beginning of the 19th century for those that had an interest in mediumship and spiruality) was table tipping.

Table tipping in the early days of the past century was really considered little more than a parlor game or tricks. The basic technique behind it is quite simple. The group of people simply sits around a table, with each person resting his hands flat on the top surface of it. If everyone is patient enough, and prepared to possible do this for several sittings, they will almost always be rewarded with some sort of phenomena.



so is this really spitit communication or something else??

Been Proved its very easy to make table tipping look impressive.
The ones who actually end up moving it when it is moved by people is the two people standing/sitting diagnaly to each other (Axis), Id love to stand and watch when table tipping is been Conducted and watch these 2 peole very closely but of cos they wont know as it could be any side of the Axis. Maybe its unfair and be like tricking them but sceptics gotta do what they gotta do to rule this out. Also if believers believe it could be "Spirit" moving the table then they shouldnt have a problem by someone watching them. Maybe something to think about

Just because its been proved that its easy to move the table - it doesn't mean thats the case all the time.

It rained yesterday - it doesn't rain everyday does it?

Got to stop thinking in absolutes ...

If I was going to try this, Id just like to try it with a selected few from team tbh, that selected few being Andrea Jay Kris...............havnt a clue why just think that could possibly gain results so long as Andrea would be willing to accept that the table could possibly move with-out us moving it lol :wink:

A good way to indicate pressure on the table from the participants is to put a light table cloth on before starting. That way anyone pushing the table will bunch up the cloth!

also apparently the two people on the Axis of the table which is 2 corners could be the ones moving the table but not of course on purpose(unless they know they are doing it) depends on which way the table moves could be anyone if anyone is moving it without knowing it.
