I've seen others use an ovilus and I'm not a fan. We don't know what consciousness is or if ghosts even exist, so how exactly did someone figure out that an EMF reading of, for example, 0.1 mG equals "get out"? The box also says "for entertainment purposes only" and "this device should not be used by anyone with a history of mental illness". I think it's a toy.

Basically I agree - though the 'entertainment purposes only' and other disclaimer was just good legal forsight regardless of the manufacturers feelings about the uses of the device.
I can see the theory of how it would work (If you assume there are independently thinking spirits and these spirits want to communicate with us and they actually do have the ability to manipulate EM Fields with purpose.) It would require the entity to 'learn' a new language by manipulating EM fields to create certain words. If they have the ability to recognize the word that the device makes when they create a certain fluctuation in the field, then they have 1 word in the Ghost to Ovilus to English vocabulary. Repeat this 30 or 40 times and they can send halting messages. Even with all the assumptions made above it is still sketchy and probably requires an investigation team to spend a large amount of time over a number of investigations just for the spirit to 'learn' enough of the language to say anything important. All of that being said, our policy is to not discount equipment until we have field tested it, so we plan on getting one of these to test once we are done with our test of a 'Spirit Box' / RF scanner. (Things don't look good for the Spirit Box at the moment...everyone on the team has just begun to refer to it as the 'broken radio'.)
Thank you both for the feedback...makes me think twice about shelling out the money for this device. I do imagine that if there is an intelligent response, that language wouldn't be much of a problem. If the spirit box, which I find to be annoying with all that interference, responds in a foreign language, why not the Ovilus?
Makes me really think about it. Thank you! Carol.......
