The TFJD Oracle: An Oracle for the 21st Century 

In The Worldview Theme Songbook--Exploring the Feelings Behind Worldviews ,an oracle is described as "a person or procedure thought to provide wise counsel or good symbolic guidance with respect to questions as to how to proceed at life’s important crossroads.  It is a form of divination: the art or practice of revealing hidden knowledge, especially the foretelling / predicting future events." After recalling its ancient history, that book's account connects it to 20th century Jungian psychology / synchronicity, MIT physics professor Kerson Huang, and quantum mechanics / quantum random walks. With that characterization one might skeptically (and rightly?) connect this modern attempt at reviving interest in and using oracles with pseudoscience / nonsense. But many with a New Age / Mysticism worldview that appreciates Non-Rational Knowing and Positive Expectations are intrigued by oracles. They see evolution as a process  informed by a connectedness that some call a "cosmic mind" rather than random process. And quizzing an oracle in terms of putting a question out there to that cosmic mind. The TFJD Oraclewhere the letters are for "thinking, feeling, joining, and doing" codes is for them. 

This modern oracle is introduced near the end of The Worldview Theme Songbook, where complete instructions are provided for its use. If this is to be characterized as a "game" for one or more players, it would not be one associated with having fun, but rather with confronting uncertainty, perhaps even crisis. This is especially true where one troubled person seeks to pose a question for an oracle. As Huangwho with his wife has provided a modern translation and interpretation of the I Ching described it, he feels that “to consult it” is “to solemnize the moment.” And feels the function of an oracle “is to satisfy certain needs of the person seeking counsel."
