X Ching

Variations on Bibliomancy - Videomancy

Bibliomancy is simply divination using a book, commonly the bible. The diviner will ask a question and then open the book at a random page, place their fingers on a passage and seek the answer in the chosen passage. Practitioners have used this method of divination for anything from finding inspiration to predicting the result of the US presidential election. It is similar to I Ching, Tarot and Horary astrology in that it invokes an answer to a question from the moment the answer is sought - the belief being that time has meaning; that every moment in time has particular qualities and from a holographic perspective, that information about the whole universe is available in every particle of the universe and can be accessed by any conscious entity.
I don't regularly practice Bibliomancy, but I have toyed with it in the past and it is an interesting idea. Instead I have developed a type of Videomancy - bibliomancy for the modern age, which is in itself more dynamic in nature. This is divination using TV series box sets and in particular the X Files. X Ching is therefore videomancy using box sets and collections of TV series. The idea is that you ask a question, choose an episode, enjoy the program and look for an answer to the question. While this is really only a bit of fun, it's worth a go just to see if you get a result. Recommended for this type of divination are TV series with changing themes and lots of episodes such as the X Files, The Waltons, The Twilight Zone, Buffy or Sex and the City. While I expect any TV program (or film) would work (or not) I expect some series will potentially work better than others for individuals. In any event if you buy a lot of movies on DVD, Blu Ray or Video and you can't decide which one to watch, this is a fun way of deciding.

Obtain an episode list for each season of the chosen series, alternatively write out a list of your movie collection, write down the season number and episode number or movie title on different pieces of paper - below is an example for the 202 episodes (plus the 1998 movie) of the X files. Put them in a box or a bag, mix them up, ask the question and pull one out. Watch that episode and see if you get the answer...which may be in the theme of the show, the dialogue, the end titles or the special features. Enjoy.
