thanks craig!!

Tea reading
that´s interesting
i have heard about it, but have never seen anybody doing it
can you elaborate a little?
do you see the future there or the personality of the people?... i am not sure what you read there? i mean.. what can you see?..
is it a special kind of tea that leaves some kind of stuff behind?
is it like the Rorshard Inkblot test? (which i studied since i am a psychologist)

I would think that it could be derived from African practices such as the reading of tossed bones, the reading of animal guts, and of blood. But early celtic people had similar practices. The pre-historic world was not as isolated as we assume, and these types of practices often travelled from culture to culture.

Here's my thinking. If it was adapted from Turkish coffee reading .. coffee originated in Ethiopia and Yemen. And african tribes have a history of household divination. I'm not sure India had similar practices or if they were common. For all we know, the practice of tea-reading may have originated in Ireland seperately.

I think the problem is that skeptics tend to look at the tools but not see the person using the tools. How can these things do anything? They're just tea leaves, coffee grounds, or sticks and rocks. It mustn't work.

I did predict the economic downturn and how severe it would be. But how can people predict the economy with just paper and ink?

When I briefly lived near Denver, we'd visit places like Taos or Sedona and meet similar sorts of people. Hippies, new agers, native americans and various colorful types. But then we'd return to the Denver suburbs and be confronted with shopping malls and skinheads. Your basic George Romero zombie film.
