From: "Glyn" Date: Wed Nov 19, 2003 3:10 pm Subject: Glyn's Retro-Tasking experiment glynis5799 Offline Offline Send Email Send Email Invite to Yahoo! 360 Invite to Yahoo! 360 Hi PJ and anyone else who is interested :-), Carrying on from my previous post, here is the 'experiment' Actually there isn't much to it, it's just that IMO the results were quite impressive seeing how short Liz's session was. It may appear as coincidence to some, but not to me ;-). Incidentally I obtained Liz's permission to post this, and would never have mentioned it to anyone else without her say-so. *Warning, this is very long, so I'd stop here if you're not that interested...but I would prefer it if you carried on ;-) ............................................................. Parts from my email to Liz follow, and her session is at the end. My mail contains some personal information about my husband which I need to include, but I have snipped irrelevant bits: To Liz.. I'm interested in retro-tasking solely because I favour 'Future Memory' theory as to a possible explanation as to how 'psi' may work, and if so then it should be observable in a retro-tasking scenario. (Well actually I think FM may not be the whole story, but it's a start anyway if effect repetition could be demonstrated.) I said on PJs Board that I would like to observe it (retro-tasking) working. Some sessions that people do are much too long though...there's too much there, ...and quite frankly you could find 'evidence' of most things in the natural universe in some of them. LOL! I wanted something shorter. What I planned to do was to find one of my old shorter ones and study them, then go and open a book and the first picture I saw I would check for correlations. I had that procedure in mind..................................when I saw your session this morning. I didn't do it deliberately Liz, I hadn't even planned it that way, but when I looked at your session I immediately decided to go out of the room and the first picture I saw I would use as 'feedback' to your session.......as if I had just done the session myself and was opening the target feedback. It's an unusual back to front concept, but I think that is how retro tasking is supposed to work....?? Don't know really though as noone actually gives much detail re procedures to follow. LOL! Well, out of the room I went, and my husband was on his computer in another room. As I said, I was going to find a book and open it, but I saw he was looking at graphics on his machine. There were 'thumbnails' of a number of pictures there, so I asked him to make one full-sized. Now this is where it becomes interesting, or coincidental, or whatever.... because there is a bit of a background to this. About 18 months ago my husband was seriously ill. It happened suddenly on a Monday morning and he was completely incapacitated. I had to telephone urgently for an ambulance. Well it took a long time for him to recover, . Early on while he was recovering he decided he'd like to build a simple little model radio- controlled airplane (nothing fast), so he could try and get back into his hobby. He later discovered that it was the sort of plane that was meant to be flown indoors and he had nowhere to fly it as his club had no indoor facility......recently his club have obtained an indoor flying area, so my husband decided to build the model......only to find he'd lost the instructions. So....that graphic I used as feedback, turned out to be part of the building instructions that he had just downloaded from the supplier's website. Phew...sorry about all that Liz, but the background information is necessary, as you will see. Well I compared the 'feedback' with your session.......just had to didn't I? No nasty motives on my part, just pure interest. Now this is where you are going to have to take my word for it. I can send the picture if you are interested, but it is not so much the picture, as the whole overall concept/gestalt that is so very fascinating! I have copied your mail (sent) to Freevent below, with my comments in caps/blue. You will see some of your comments do not appear to fit, but an appreciable percentage do. I will NOT, *EVER* publish this or post it to someone else without your permission. It was an unintentional, spontaneous thing...but I could not miss the opportunity now could I? LOL! I think Future Memory *is* at work here, and it looks like it's yours...maybe this mail from me works like your 'feedback' for your session back in the past. If you are surprised (or experienced any strong emotion) when you first read this then it may have stood out back in the past when you did your session. Now *that* I think is how so-called retro tasking could be made to work. On the surface if that is so then it appears that the past is changed...whereas it is only the normal progression of events, the feedback that is picked up on being further over the 'horizon' than anticipated; that's all. Did I hear myself saying 'That's All'!? LOL! There may be a part I am playing too.Who knows? We have a way to go before understanding 'psi', but we will never do so unless we start to play outside the box a bit. .......................... Liz gave her permission, so her session (and my comments in CAPs) is below................ ............................ -----Original Message----- From: Elizabeth Hambrook [mailto:elizabeth....au] Sent: 16 November 2003 03:24 To: Freevent...ups.com Subject: [Freevent] RV on self G'day Tunde, Here's a session I did a while back. I had put a photo of myself in my pool with the instructions to describe target. Unfortunately I only spent about 5-10 minutes on this session. I wish I'd done more. The symbology is interesting.

Well that's it folks. Now I can almost hear some of you wondering what the fuss was all about ;-). However, considering the brevity of Liz's session, even if it was coincidence it was quite good :-). Well,you will draw your own conclusions; just thought some would find it interesting, and at least PJ has got a reply. LOL! Sincerely, Glyn Reply | Forward

It may appear as > coincidence to some, but not to me ;-). Well it might be, but there is probably more at work, given I've done this on fairly long sessions, which were quite good ones as well, and still been surprised. > Incidentally I obtained Liz's permission > to post this, and would > never have mentioned it to anyone else > without her say-so. Thanks. I once teased Dick Allgire that since he was so mocking about the subject I was going to use all his online sessions for my experiments, LOL! I never did but I thought it was a funny quip. Whether or not there are 'ethics' to that, I think depends entirely on WHY seemingly positive results can be seen from experiments. It may have nothing whatever to do with the viewer or session and everything to do with the analysis and DAT theory instead, for example, which would mean, that using someone's session would be no more invasive than say, asking a question, opening the bible or shakespeare with your eyes closed and pointing to a page and reading something expecting it to answer or apply to the question. (And personally, I think in the real world, nearly any session done for another person has potential group-energy issues to deal with. So I figure even if it WAS so, that's "the real world" and it's the one I have to function in, so I don't care if people were RTing mine.) > Some sessions that people do are much too > long though...there's too > much there, ...and quite frankly you could > find 'evidence' of most > things in the natural universe in some of > them. LOL! I wanted > something shorter. One thing you notice when looking through public sessions is that (a) a lot of the data is somewhat useless (I posted on that eons ago), and (b) what IS useful is often not helpful "out of context", so unless there were lots of viewers and analysis OR the viewer made decent "conceptual" contact with the target, it's iffy, and (c) many of the sessions have enough info to incorporate, as you said, much of the universe in them to varying degrees LOL. Add to that the research finding that about 30% of RV info pertains to about 30% of all targets, and that's at the pro level, heck probably more with lesser-skilled viewers. Then consider how many english words can be used in many different ways (as nouns, concepts or verbs for example). It gets a little complicated to separate all this out. > I immediately decided to go out of > the room and the first picture I saw > I would use as 'feedback' to > your session.......as if I had just > done the session myself and was > opening the target feedback. It's an > unusual back to front concept, Not entirely. Although I use a practice pool, I generally choose the envelope (or have my kid do it) after I do the session. Sometimes I use a computer program, and I do the session and then generate the target. I think it leans harder on the development of the belief systems. However for an extended series, you probably ought to set a less arbitrary means of selecting your targets, to make it less subjective. > but I think that is how retro tasking > is supposed to work....?? Well nobody's an expert. There are probably a few ways it could be done. I once posted a list of 'questions' that would have to be considered on the topic and it was long, and addressed many different ways such a thing could be set up. I guess the gestalt of the idea is simply that one has a session done by someone else on a target, and then one takes a different-target, and attempts to apply the session to the one newly-selected target, even though the session was not done with that one in mind. I might add that the archives have messages from both Paul and Joe about this. > it is not so much the picture, as > the whole overall concept/gestalt > that is so very fascinating! One thing I found interesting was the weird symmetry of coincidence that seemed present in the experiments I did. One thought that came to me is that perhaps our reality is actually based on a more limited number of 'basics' than we realize. Sort of like how art schools say that you start with a small number of basic forms and from those you can pretty much ad-lib to draw anything. It seems maybe our whole world is like that. > You will see some of your comments do not appear to fit, > but an appreciable percentage do. Well that goes for any RV session. Of course this might get partly back to the issue of viewing skill and detail. For example, Skip Atwater has the transcript of one of Joe's sessions on his website where he's talking about what turned out to be Mars. Well, he's saying things like "...the aftereffects of a geological cataclysm..." or something like that. That is a TAD specific, if you ask me!; it would be considerably more difficult to apply THAT level of "concept-depth" in a session to lots of other things, than most the sessions of developing viewers that I've seen. > Well that's it folks. Now I can almost > hear some of you wondering > what the fuss was all about ;-). Well it is fairly hilarious that there is even an airplane ref in the data. :-) Now you have to ask if that was YOU and your arbitrary target selection, or her. Might be good to choose a multi-target source (or even have other people give you one), and just grab the next target to apply to the next session. I still think Decision Augmentation Theory could be behind this. This could even explain why some people in science (any science) can research and get one result and others get another. Thanks for responding to that. I'd given up, lol! :-) PJ Reply | Forward

Yes, I cant rule out that something other than FM (or instead of) could be working, and my views are not set in stone. Maybe it was Lizs precall, and maybe mine too&.perhaps there was an interaction of some kind going on; or perhaps none of those. Decision Augmentation Theory? Now Ive heard you and other people talk about that quite a lot, but Ive never really read about it any detail; no excuse though, I will have to.. According to FM theory as per Dunne, it would probably have been Liz accessing her future memory of the final feedback (which would have been my email to her), and what happened in the middle was not that important to her. However, if this retro-tasking is still supposed to work without the person who did the session knowing anything about it, or getting any kind of intentional or unintentional feedback, then they would never have any future memories to access so there would have to be more to it than that. Maybe I was using Lizs session as a sort of question to which I wanted to find an answer&.as per your example of asking questions and opening books to find an answer, which made a great deal of sense..and that sort of thing seems to happens such a lot to different people. All I had to do in that case was find an answer that fit the question ; and I didnt have to go far&my feedback was only in the next room; although I would have had to precall it to find it without doing a written session of my own; but why not(?). I dont know though, my psi ability isnt usually that good&but maybe the sheer spontaneity of the thing may have accounted for the success&sort of beginners luck. However think there is something else at work too. I must read about DAT. There are paradoxes all over the *loody place, I know ;-). Its just getting the sequence of events right perhaps.. maybe because we are hopelessly stuck with only being able to experience cause and effect in a linear fashion (at a conscious level anyway), we just cant grasp the big picture here. The answer seems so near but also so far. Meanwhile we can have fun speculating until we die of frustration though cant we? LOL! > Well it is fairly hilarious that there is even an airplane ref in the > data. :-) Now you have to ask if that was YOU and your arbitrary > target selection, or her.

Yes, Im going to do that, it will be interesting to compare our results. Yes, the airplane data in Lizs session was impressive&..but what was much more significant to me was that in that same short session Liz also mentioned transmitter! Heck, transmitters and airplanes&..and the graphic was about radio-controlled model aeroplanes! Now, in a session that length&.well you just cant get a lot closer can you? If that was pure coincidence then I wish I had that sort of luck doing the lottery.;-). > I still think Decision Augmentation Theory could be behind this. > This could even explain why some people in science (any science) can > research and get one result and others get another. Thats settled&Im off to look up DAT so I know what you are talking about. :-) Thanks for responding to that. I'd given up, lol! :-) Everything comes to she who waits&...LOL!!

From: "Glyn" Date: Mon Nov 24, 2003 8:51 am Subject: Theories of 'Psi' glynis5799 Offline Offline Send Email Send Email Invite to Yahoo! 360 Invite to Yahoo! 360 Hi PJ, Below is extract from the Journal of Parapsychology, Vo. 59, September 1995, Decision Augmentation Theory: Toward a model of Anomalous Mental Phenomena by Edwin C May, Jessica M. Utts, and S James P. Spottiswoode. http://www.lfr.org/csl/library/DATjp.pdf It is an extremely interesting theory, and now I know what you are talking about :-). I especially liked the following sentence: In fact, DAT leads to the idea that there may be only one underlying mechanism of all anomalous mental phenomena, namely, a transfer of information from future to past And this one: A potential underlying mechanism for DAT is precognition. I was cherry-picking there, but Yes, yes, and yes :-)&.it is the same idea isnt it, precognition, the transfer of information from future to past. Personally though I think FM theorists would say something like the accessing of future information from the present. Sounds the same, but its a whole step further to propose that a conscious action made today can effect or affect a past event. I prefer to think of it as starting at box A (my mind today) and moving to box B( my mind tomorrow) and bringing some memories back to me at box A. I get in a real muddle trying to think of it any other way :-). Basically I think we are working from the same end PJ, but FM theory goes a little further in that it suggests a how precognition works, (ie obtaining memories from our own minds down the timeline), and Dunnes and ODonnells experiments do seem to point to that; Dunnes especially. Dunnes theory of Serial Time goes further towards a how, and it is complicated&.but IMO similar to some of the quantum mechanics ideas of today actually. Multiple dimensions, maybe out of synch with each other time-wise, &..and Dunnes idea of serial time(s)&&¬ too much of a stretch to see the similarity in concept. Sean ODonnell leans more towards a reality where all exists at once, but that we are only consciously aware of a present and a past in a linear setting, but we can learn to deliberately precall what we see as our future, to a greater or lesser extent. I have attached an interesting link. Have you heard of the Quantum Mechanical Theory of Psi? See below: http://moebius.psy.ed.ac.uk/Physical_H.html I liked this bit from the above page (talking about QMTP theory)&.. Psi is also seen as being independent of space and time. A requirement of hidden variables is that they must, according to a well-known tenet of quantum theory called Bell's Theorem, be non-local in nature. In real-terms this would mean that the space-time location of the system to be affected is not important: only the feedback to the observer is. Psi is also independent of task complexity. Again, the important feature is the act of observation, so it is only the feedback which is important. This does mean that some form of true feedback to the observer is vital. However, this again brings up the divergence problem although in this model, while future psi agents can also have an effect, it is argued that they can act only to increase the variance of experimental results rather than change what has already been observed. The value of feedback again&and it would *have* to be our memory of experiencing it&&.eh? ;-) We seem to be agreed then PJ, only slight differences of possible mechanism to argue over&.&LOL! Kind regards, Glyn
