Jeremy Clarkson uses dowsing

Post by Grahame »

Jeremy Clarkson finds water pipes on his land using #dowsing:
Sunday Times wrote:In perhaps one of the most un-Jeremy Clarkson things Jeremy Clarkson has ever done, on the advice of a neighbour (“called Charlie, who may be mad”), he set about location the Victorian pipes with a pair of metal coat hangers. Water divining, also called dowsing, is sometimes used in Steinbeck-esque, water parched farms in California, and is considered by many to be a pseudoscience.

“In my mind water divining is like ley lines and horoscopes,” wrote Clarkson in today’s article. “It’s nonsense. Two coat hangers will not react to the presence of water. Except for one thing. They do.”

Clarkson was amazed to find the metal in his hands going “berserk” in places. “I’d fire up the mini digger and, bugger me, right where the coat hangers had crossed, there was a pipe.”

Clarkson found the pipes all over his land, and even located the “massive Victorian underground water engine”. After replacing the pump and filling the tank at the top of the hill, he was confident it’d start doing its job again.

Raises questions about focussed intent, integrity of questioning etc,...generally stuff dowsers discuss, especially when asked how it works. Should it work when you believe it won't work?!

Somehow intent seems to have taken a miss here, but if it works without intent then all’s the better ,or was he just kidding and was really interested and hoping it worked, only just to save him money, which alone is a very powerful intent for some people ??
