The Rhetorical Oracle is an interactive personal contemplation DVD-Video that re-calibrates ancient technology to help audiences look at eternal mysteries in a contemporary context. The Rhetorical Oracle functions like rune stones, the i-ching or the tarot cards and evokes the presence of kinetic oracles of the ancient world. Magda Szubanski and John Clarke host a metaphysical journey that presents audiences with two active potentialities; the classical arts of divination and meditation.
