Automatic Writing

Automatic writing is a traditional technique where a group of people place their finger on a planchette with a pen through it. Similar to glass moving or perhaps Ouija, this experiment will provide drawings, written words or letters in response to questions asked by the group. There can be no guarantee that this experiment will work, but when it does it brings some fascinating results!

Experiment Example

The below video is of a group of people on a works night out, none of them had ever taken part in an automatic writing experiment before. One of the team asks the spirit “do you like music”. The planchette then seems to draw what looks like a musical treble clef.

In the still pictures, you will see when asked for a symbol a bird was drawn; another shows a number 612 and some hearts, there was one heart drawn for every female in the room when asked “do you love the ladies”.
