    That *is* funny. Careful, the technique is catching.

    Jeff,

    I don't know what you mean by the technique.. in case you think I made it up, I did get 35.4

    I think the Yi thinks it's funny too..

    Oh don't worry, I believe you 100% LA. :-)

    The technique, IMO, was Dobro's approach when he started asking these funky questions of his. I think he kept getting 35.4 as a reflection of what he was doing at the time.

    (IOW, IMO 35.4 represented *what he was doing* - posting these seemingly trivial questions in a roundabout effort to ... well, to do whatever he was trying to do by posting them (I'm still not clear on that)).

    And yes, I do agree with you that your answer was ye olde Yi sense of humor cropping up...

    Well, this is interesting now because, from the very start, I have believed that Dobro did not really ask those questions and did not get those answers. I think he was just kidding.. I think..

    He's awfully quiet now but I wish he would clarify that.. am I too.. cynical?? Will you, Dobro??

    laughin softly here... Angel, I did exactly what you're now doing RE: 35.4. I started a thread in Open Space on 35.4. Then without realizing it, I myself had become 35.4: questioning, requisitioning, looking here and there... like a busy little mouse.

    It's hard not to put a Personage behind the Yi. There's more to humor than neuron reflexes. It still astounds me.

    Yeah, the thread with the stealth bomber and the squeaky squirrel.. (looked it up just now)

    So, the Yi was trying to tell me something, maybe to not be a busy little mouse.. hmmm..

    I do wonder if Dobro had a reason for picking this line or if he did it at... random! I predict that.. he won't tell!

    Lightangel - I didn't really ask those questions of the Yi. I used the 35.4 line because my understanding of it is a little bit along the lines of the Yi telling you: "Oh come on - get real - shape up!"

    Which is how I feel when people use the oracle for things they could figure out either on their own or by asking somebody else who knows. Things like: "Am I pregnant?" or "What does my girlfriend *really* feel about me?"

    When I posted the series of four threads, I was just having fun. So when I started to see how seriously some people were taking what I was posting, I was amazed - I thought it would be obvious I was cracking jokes. Or perhaps being funny is actually passive aggressive behavior. Dunno. I thought it was just being funny.

    Well, to me it was obvious that you were having fun, but maybe it was because of the way I "saw" the threads, like all at one time. But I can see how if somebody sees the first one, on its own, they might think it's for real, and then they see the next one, and only by the time they get to the fourth one they might start thinking this is strange..

    I thought it was funny.

    But I still think that you can ask any question you like of the Yi and you might get a response that is valid in some way. Maybe there are different Yis for different people (I know that has been speculated in this forum). Maybe my Yi is nicer than your Yi! . It played along with you and gave me a 35.4 when I asked about this.

    I didn't follow the "passive aggressive" bit but I don't think being funny is passive aggressive. I think funny is good. But.. what about your pizza.. did you really get 12???

    I think Yi answers any question, even when you ask many times, but it depends on you if you get the answer. If you think you are doing something wrong, or if you don't believe Yi will answer silly questions, or whatever other reason to doubt the answer, then no answer will make sense.

    That makes a lot of sense to me. Maybe you need to be a little 'innocent'.. just enough to believe that you can get an answer.

    I can look at it as if I'm talking to a friend. I might ask my friend: "Am I pregnant?" and they most likely won't say "get a pregnancy test" or they will say that but they will also understand the anxiety or the desire behind my question.. and they'll address that in a supportive way. A little later I might ask the question again and they might laugh with me or repeat the words of support they just said.. that's what you would expect from a friend.
