I watched someone dowse once with a crystal on a string above a rock. You could see their hand moving....
Bingo! Like my Rollrights man!
I don't actually doubt his sincerity. He probably believed the rods were moving of their own accord. That's the thing with the ideomotor effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ideomotor_effect if you missed it. There's probably better references out there but I really don't have time) - the person with the rods/pendulum really doesn't realise it's them that's moving it!
