Another thing I wanted to try out was the sound of carbon particles immersed in oil. The oild adds better insulation of the carbon particles to the compound and I expected the sound to be more calm. So I prepared another glass vessel, drilled holes for thumbtack electrodes I glued in, filled it with graphite powder and added Ballistol oil, a high quality oil that is not gummying.

In fact the sound was more steady an calm. With 40V DC bias at the cell I got a nice smooth noise signal with a soft overlay of spiky voices.

I heard some very personal messages in german, one predicted a heart attack for me, but I leave it up to to make your own interpretation and put them all here as a list.

 

Some messages had a very actual context for me. One said "Look to the window". My desk is directly in front of the room window. Then I was told I now learned my lesson very well to trust my inner feelings, what is entirely true. I also received one message that said "It will be like faxing". Actually I am working on a software named "SpiritFax" since a while and maybe this message was addressing it. 

Another one told me I would become  a "navigator" in november and the most stunning one was "Works good with the varnish". For a moment I was confused but then I realized they were addressing the oil! Ballistol oil has the color of amber and if you don't know what it is it looks like varnish!
