  1. table rapping

    Table rapping, also known as table tapping, is a form of communication often associated with séances or spiritualism, where spirits are believed to answer questions or communicate with the living through a series of taps or knocks on a table or other surface. These taps are often interpreted through a pre-decided code, such as one tap for 'yes', two for 'no', etc. Historically, this practice gained popularity during the 19th century spiritualist movement. The authenticity of this phenomenon is widely questioned and often attributed to trickery or psychological suggestive forces.
