Scatomancy

Scatomancy (alternatively known as Spatalomancy, Spatilomancy, Cropomancy, and Spatalamancy) is a divination by studying the the size, arrangement, color and interaction of excrement.

Etymology

Derived from the Greek skor ('excrement') and manteia ('prophecy')

History

In ancient times, scatomancers were often influential members of their community called upon to assist in medical diagnosis and trial by ordeal. In kleptoparasitic, one of scatomancy's forms that popular in ancient Egypt, dung beetles were employed. These amazing insects were actually held sacred and immortalized by the Egyptians. They shape, roll and weave dung balls as a sexual display and courtship attractor. The beetles speed and behavior, as well as the appearance of the dung balls, were all taken into consideration for the prognostications.
The examination of feces and urine by physicians and folk medicine practitioners has also been performed since ancient times. Medicine men and women were knowledgeable on it, and made predictions as well as diagnoses from feces examination, resembling today's medical professionals and laboratories.

Methods

Keep in mind that the predictions of Fecal Fortune Telling are based on your first bowel movement of that day. If you do not produce any droppings before 12pm, It is impossible to predict that day's readings. If you cannot produce a movement before noon, we suggest more bran and fibre in your diet. It is helpful to keep a pad and pen near your toilet to quickly jot down the key dynamics of your ploppers before you flush, because once you flush, it will be gone forever.
