- A person through
which otherworldly entities speak, similar to
channeling. Classically the oracle goes into a trance. The word
also refers to the message received. People often see oracles
to ask questions or to be given insights to their future. In
the voices or mediums of the oracles were sybils, women priests,
who lived in caves regarded as the shrines of deities.The
most famous Roman oracles
were at Dodua, where Zeus was
thought to give answers through the rustling of the oak leaves,
and at Delphi,
where Apollo supposedly
spoke through a priestess. In both cases, oracular responses
came in such ambiguous ways that it was difficult to prove them
wrong. A famous Roman oracle was at Cumae, where the sibyl was
said to have drawn inspiration from Apollo. Oracles may also be
dreams and visions. The Urim and Thummim is called an oracle.

The formal bestowal of ministerial office, with the
authority of the Church publicly given by its agents competent
to ordain (bishop, presbytery). Since the Reformation wide
divergence has prevailed alike as to the form and theory of the
ministry, the liturgical forms used in ordination, and the
proper person to administer ordination. In the Eascern and Roman
Catholic Churches ordination is held to confer grace and
indelible character, and therefore not to he repeated. Many
Anglicans share this position. In churches of Catholic order
ordination is set in the framework of the Eucharistic liturgy
and restricted to bishops of historic succession, as was the
universal rule from the second to the 16th-century. The
essential form of ordination consists of the laying on of hands�
with prayer. Admission to minor orders is by the giving of the
appropriate symbol of office (out of which has developed the porrecijo
isssts-um e,sto rum). This
primitive simplicity has been retained by the Eastern Church,
and to it the Reformed Churches have returned. The practice of
laying-on-of-hands for ordination comes first from the very
ancient practice of the father laying his hands upon his sons to
confer upon them their various parts of inheritance. (Abraham,
Isaac, Jacob, Joseph). Since the Bible says that Christians are
inheritors of Abraham's blessing through Jesus, it seemed
appropriate to confer these blessings in the same way.

- Ouija Board:
- A board and pointer
used for divination and to contact the spirit world. The name is
said to come from the French for 'yes', oui, and the German for
'yes', ja - th9ough there are other claims. The board, which
has the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0 to 9, and the
words 'yes' and 'no' printed on it, is placed on a table.
Participants rest their fingertips lightly on the pointer, a
heart-shaped device with three felt-tipped legs. One person
poses a question, and the pointer is then supposed to move to
answer the question. Similar board-type instruments were used
for divination in ancient China and Greece. In the
mid-nineteenth century a similar device, the planchette, came
into use in Europe. The modern Ouija board is marketed as a
game, originally called 'Ouija Talking Board', and was developed
in the late 1890s by an American, William Fuld, who sold the
patent to the Parker Brothers game company in 1966. Ouija boards
became popular during and after World War I, when many people
were desperate to communicate with friends and loved ones killed
in the fighting. Parapsychologists regard the Ouija board as a
means to tap into the subconscious; critics of its use claim
that it is dangerous in that users have no control over
repressed material, which may lead to psychological trauma. Most
fundamentalist Christians condemn the Ouija board as dangerous
tinkering with potentially harmful occult forces and a tool of
- Ouroboros: (Greek Ουροβόρος,
snake", also spelled Uroboros in English)
- An ancient
symbol depicting a serpent or dragon swallowing its own tail and
forming a circle. Plato described it as as self-eating, circular
being as the first living thing in the universe—an immortal,
perfectly constructed animal. "The living being had no need of
eyes when there was nothing remaining outside him to be seen;
nor of ears when there was nothing to be heard; and there was no
surrounding atmosphere to be breathed; nor would there have been
any use of organs by the help of which he might receive his food
or get rid of what he had already digested, since there was
nothing which went from him or came into him: for there was
nothing beside him. Of design he was created thus, his own waste
providing his own food, and all that he did or suffered taking
place in and by himself. For the Creator conceived that a being
which was self-sufficient would be far more excellent than one
which lacked anything; and, as he had no need to take anything
or defend himself against any one, the Creator did not think it
necessary to bestow upon him hands: nor had he any need of feet,
nor of the whole apparatus of walking; but the movement suited
to his spherical form was assigned to him, being of all the
seven that which is most appropriate to mind and intelligence;
and he was made to move in the same manner and on the same spot,
within his own limits revolving in a circle. All the other six
motions were taken away from him, and he was made not to partake
of their deviations. And as this circular movement required no
feet, the universe was created without legs and without feet."
