I still find it kinda mind boggling. Never seen it done in person. Should technically not work. And scientifically is thought not to work.

One of life's mysteries I guess.

"science" has had to fudge its own data to make it "not work". When the results were too good the amazing randi switched to target to gold coins even though the dowsers said they were water only folks.

Of all the wild talents, dowsing is actually the most reproducible.
