Clarifying Cleromancy

September 17, 2013

Cleromancy is the casting and reading of bones, stones, and/or other natural (or substitute) objects. When cast, the materials display configurations of symbolism readable by a person attuned to uppermost Omniversal dimensions of Mind and Time, source of all archetypes. In religious terms, cleromancy is a dialing-in to God’s Intention, Will, and Judgment. In non-religious terms that represent PluribusOne™’s decoding of the Language of Nature, cleromancy is the conscious dilation of the upper human energy centers (chakras) to optimize communion with the uppermost dimensions of Omniverse: the three dimensions of Consciousness and first dimension of Time. The human energy centers are extensions of Source Energy Awareness (SEA), and just as flowers open to receive sunlight, humans are designed to communicate with SEA. 

More than seventy references to the practice of casting lots can be found in the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible. As there is no physical description of the lots the ancients used, our assumption is that various natural objects served as lots and that methods of use varied. The Bible recounts times when “God” was said to have directed the Israelites to cast lots for the purpose of knowing His Will with regard to such things as determining boundaries for land ownership, selecting office holders, and settling other matters requiring final authoritative decisions. In the New Testament the Apostles used lots to choose a replacement for Judas. Lots were also used sometimes to identify hidden facts and factors, including the guilt or innocence of an accused person. 

Among the ancient Israelites, as well as in other cultures, the use of lots was a sacred act performed by members of the priesthood. The priestly use of lots was publicly discontinued when people who were fixated in low chakras began using lots for game-playing, fortune-telling, and other purposes such as the Roman soldiers casting lots for Jesus’ clothing. Sortitian, including the practice of drawing straws to make unbiased (mindless) selections among candidates to perform unpleasant tasks, is not the same as the sacred use of lots although the process appears identical. The difference between profane and sacred usage is comparable to the difference between casual coin-flips and coin-flips backed by strong intent—a fact proved through scientific experiments. 

Lots themselves, whether taking the form of stones, sticks, or bones, are not the source of information although the quality of a tool always has an effect on the quality of a task performed. The right set of bones will fully reflect and resonate with the foundational principles of Nature; they will accurately signify the bone-like principles of Nature, principles that underlie the visible flesh of Omniverse. While the quality of instruments used to aid the focusing and functioning of mindful intent are important, it is the quality of consciousness—the spiritual development of the caster of the lots—that makes the difference between a reliable reading that leads to a positive result and one that may lead to a tragic result. The Bible contains accounts of all kinds of usage and consequences and generally discourages divinatory practices outside the priesthood. 

In the course of our research into cleromancy PluribusOne™ examined various “bones” widely used today by both professional and non-professional spread-readers. Dominoes are among the most popular tools in use. However, a close examination of both Chinese Dominoes and Double-Six Dominoes revealed that while both popular sets contain elements that correspond to the fundamental structure of Omniverse, neither set is correct or complete enough to constitute a high quality tool—both are flawed and essentially useless for more than playing parlor games. Cleromancy is not a game.
