Do personal religious beliefs affect rving?

A friend and I were sitting around talking about remote viewing and religious beliefs. We wondered if a viewer, who was an aethist, would react if they were given the target of the cruxification of Jesus? We also wondered how those with structured religious beliefs (like in the major Christian religions) deal with information from targets that do not support their belief systems? For example --- the big bang and orgin of mankind. If you came across Archangel Michael, what would you do? Would your belief hinder or help you view the target? When my friend found herself face to chest with Michael, she let him make the first move. She was curious as to what he would do. My friend did a slow merge with Michael (which was obviously fine with him). He was a massive presence. If my friend were Catholic or Mormon or whatever, would she had placed a lot of religious significance to the encounter? My friend basically thought it was very "cool" but did not wonder why he was appearing to her at the time. No, we were not drunk when we had this conversation. This idea came up over coffee. However, my friend chooses to remain anonymous at this time. Please address your comments to anonymous -- not to me. I am just the messenger. Looking forward to an active discussion. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

There are many good psi studies which could be reinterpereted from a quantum standpoint. Now, some people believe that quantum effects occur only in very tiny measurements. Henry Stapp (physicist) argued this point 5 or 6 years ago. Henry thought that the macro Universe is classical and the micro Universe is quantum. --I think that's silly & said so at the time. Since that time I have come to believe that the Universe all works the same way, whatever that is, and that the evidence for quantum effects is really better than *the evidence for classical physics.* To get a good classical result, the experimenters throw out everything else. Ask them yourself! The weird stuff early in the experiment is written off to startup problems and "gremlins". They run the experiment until their values converge. This assumes that there is a true universal mean from which their estimates differ by some error factor. *This may not be true*. [Note that I have not said the above is categorically true of experimenters, but only that it is very frequently true.] The location of an electron is not a quantity we-don't-know-and-must- estimate-statistically; it is undefined.

Shiva's teeth, how can anyone possibly doubt this? If you can *observe* something and turn in verifiable results, you have observed it in the quantum sense no matter what mode of observation you used.

These were the remote influencing results you wanted to get? Bloody nose, headache, pencil stuck into wall, and so forth? It doesn't surprise me that you failed. The anthropological literature and historical record are rich in accounts of remote influencing. The suggestion that none of this actually took place *because you and your cohorts could not do it* is absurd. Can yu stick pencils into walls by thought power in ordinary situations? If not, why should you popose this as a test for remote influencing? There is a large collection of good laboratory studies of psychokinesis. These are studies of remote influencing.

Influencing lotteries is an entirely different problem than influencing thought of a human being or sensitive electronics. Lotteries are hard because a) the Universe doesn't care whether a given bit is a 1 or a 5; and b) most state lotteries are crooked. Lotteries are a wast of time. Remote influencing certainly does work. Psychokinesis and healing are remote techniques. Shelley Thomson stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

On the other hand, if the target did actually exist in history - the Crucifixion of a man called Jesus ca. 20 BC - 30 AD, a viewer could view the event and view any phenomena which may have occured, darkening of the skys, piercing of the chest and flow of water...things described in scriptures. The fact the viewer was an atheist would make no difference since they are operating in the right side of the brain and only viewing and reporting what they perceive at face value. They may even perceive emotional impacts of the gathered masses. This same aetheist would perceive the impact and activities of a Buddha, a Mohammed etc, in exactly the same manner. A spiritual encounter with something identified as St. Michael would be more difficult to absolutely clarify. Keep in mind, a name or even a title does not translate well in Remote Viewing although an angelic perception may well overcome this phenomena. As to why a Christian Saint would appear to a mortal has and will continue be a theological question and certainly nothing which this poor ignorant Mick from the wrong side of the tracks in Belfast would want to venture an opinion. A viewing of Apollo, Zeus, Diana, etc..now that is something else...these were mythical deities with no real or factual proof of actual mortal existence therefore, viewing these fairy tales would bring into great doubt the veracity of the viewer. I should add, that I feel essentially as shortsighted with most (not all) reports of associations and psychic tea parties and conversations with alien beings but please not I do not have a similarly closed mind when it comes to Celtic spirits and Fairies...ironic..but like I said..I am Irish and we are allowed to be a bit eccentric..it is in our blood...

The fact that you could not do it certainly does not prove that others cannot. Why don't you read the research literature? There are *many* studies dealing with remote influencing. Rubik & Rauscher?

Gene, My question is: did this happen to Courtney Brown? His book is kind of off the wall. Was most of it psychic overlay, vivid imagination, or real remote viewing? I mean is Buddha really governing the Galatic Federation? Courtney self appoints himself to represent all of mankind! Underground bases of Martians, etc. What is going on here? I guess I just don't understand psychic overlay. Could that also be what happened when he and others saw a companion object with the Hale Bopp comet? I hope my questions aren't too elementary.

Jane-- I could tell from Gene's typing style that he was either: 1) Really wound up and writing faster than he could think of the right words in one of the various languages he knows; 2) Suffering from jetlag from one of his junkets--er, "business trips to exotic areas of the world on the taxpayers dime"; 3) A wee bit under the weather from too much association with this Guiness fellow he's always metioning (no, folks, we ain't talking world records, here); or 4) All of the above. I shall therefore graciously undertake to answer for him! ;-) What Gene was talking about is also known as "telepathic overlay." It was the subject of much discussion some months back on PJ's VWR group. Telepathic overlay is tuning in on someone else's thoughtforms instead of the desired target. This can come about in several ways. One is if the viewer is undisciplined or inexperienced, and he/she just picks up on someone's strong "vibes." Another is when several viewers are addressing the same target, and the viewer's subconscious gets confused and picks up on one of the other viewers. In this case, one might never know it happened, if the other viewer was "on target." Very closely matching reports is a POSSIBLE indicator in this case that TOL has occurred. A third way TOL occurs is when the viewer is tasked against a target that doesn't exist in reality, but only in the mind of the tasker. Perhaps, for example, the tasker believes a certain UFO event occurred, though it turns out the "event" was made up by someone the tasker mistaenly trusted. When tasked, the viewer "goes out looking" for the presumed target, but the subconsious finding nothing, it may sometimes latch on to the strongest "psychic signal" available--the beliefs of the tasker. In which case the viewer reports exactly what the tasker expected him/her to report, thus confirming everything the tasker originally believed. The irony is that telepathic overlay IS being psychic--it's just being pyschic in an unuseful and (usually) unfortunate way. I should point out that, though Ingo knows about this phenomenon, he did not teach us about it. We had to find out the HARD way! HaHa Gene--beat you to it! Enjoy!

I thought I would bring out a few fallacy in our arguments. Gene...one of the first requirements in achieving or observing the reality of something is *believing.* Granted, we don't necessarily believe ourselves to richness necessarily, however *believing* does provide a healthy attitude to allow for *possibilities.* Your conclusion locks out all possibilities on scientific method that STILL is unable to provide reliable and CONCRETE evidence on the nature of PSI. But if you are making a formal argument whether Remote Influence is possible or not, regardless of whether it is an opinion (since an argument is either valid or invalid, opinion or not), your argument goes like this: 1. World class (whatever that means) Remote Viewers weren't able to Remote Influence. 2. Impeccable, strict scientific test with tons of money backing this "laboratory research" did not show Remote Influence results. 3. Therefore, Remote Influence experiments shows no results. So, that was a valid argument. But you extrapolated this valid argument into.... 4. Remote Influence is a like "parlor trick." In other words, RI is not possible. THAT... is an invalid argument. Since the two premises above did NOT indicate whether the nature of Remote Influence exist or not. So, the lab experiment ( probably conducted in isolation of other INDEPENDENT labs in virtue of its classified nature) ONLY proved that there were NO RESULTS in the experimentation process that was undertook at that particular TIME in your presence at that location. I have taken the liberty of applying a philosophic conclusion on your comment. I am not stating that RI exist or not. To have a better impact in persuation, I believe you will have to look for a better premise to substantiate RI existence or non-existence. As for Shelley...as positive as she claims its existence, her only alibi is research made on the subject. We are not made aware of the conditions, so we are left having to research the material ourselves. That's fine and dandy, but is also doesn't provide a persuasive argument in the NOW. A psychic element like this is something I would prefer experiencing first hand, its parameters defined, and full "statistical" interpretation of its repeated results, and the players. Thus, I am ambivalent in accepting either story, since the its much need for proper embellishment. So that we "believe what we will" is a philosophical statement we can argue forever. But our issue is scientific evidence openly displayed to establish CONCRETE evidence. An issue like this is much too important and carries tremendous ramification for it to be stated dubiously to the readers. Respectfully, electrix stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hi Paul! Thanks for providing an excellent definition of psychic overlay. Now I have a better idea of what is going on. As far as Courtney Brown goes, well, I guess I can reach my own conclusion based on his book. I do have another question about psychic overlays and Jesus. A friend viewed the cruxification of Jesus. She saw the man on the cross. He was dying. All around his head was ALOT of energies. Are those energies originating from the man Jesus or are those energies overlays from the millions of people that send energy/pray to that image? Can current energy be sent back to a previous event and appear as the original event? Just wondering.... Thanks! Jane stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Re Saints visiting mortals. When first starting out in psychic phenomenae, but not really believing it I took a class in psychic meditation in about 1977. It was sort of a primitive RVing class..but an argument broke out about whether entities that were contacted ( and people were claiming this) were trustworthy. Well the instuctor got carried away about measuring the Love and careing of the entity and whether it was just trying to boost your ego. He then went into what I later found out was Pauls speech on Love in Corinthians 13. Suddenly a patch of light appeared next to the leader and formed into the face of a beared robed man. Iwas nonplussed but silent. then one of the others described the same face I was seeing and said that Paul had the same message. Measure your worth by Love and Faith and Hope but most of all by Love. Thank God he didn't evangelize..I might have turned Catholic. But he didn't, just looked me straight in the eyes and said, psychic things were fine but only Love could be ultimately trusted. Everybody walked out in stony silence. Thats it folks..honest. Bill Pendergrass. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Dear List: The debate over remote-influencing is causing evident tensions on this list. Since it is such a hotly controversial topic, with many heated opinions, I would like everyone to halt discussion of this subject as of the date and time of this post. If you must continue discussion, please take it to private e-mail. Could everyone please, for the meantime, refrain from making any further remote-influencing posts. Some of the people on this list have made comments which could be interpreted as offensive (or, perhaps just blunt to the extent that they can easily be seen as offensive.) I am tempted to remove access to this list for these individuals, but given the controversial nature of the topic, I can understand why people may of become agitated. I am also opposed to "authoritarian" solutions to problems, so I will instead give these individuals another chance. But be aware that anyone who makes a post about remote-influencing past the posting of this message will receive a written email warning. This will be followed by suspending of their access to this list if they persist. I would not like to have to switch this list to moderated discussion, but this may become necessary if people do not calm themselves down and try to discuss and debate subjects in a mature, calm manner. I am sorry this 'order' is necessary, but as List Owner/Moderator, it is my responsibility to ensure this list operates smoothly. As I have repeatedly said, I will *only* bring in rules and moderation if I feel it becomes necessary. Until recently, I felt the list was operating fine without the need for rules or moderation. I felt it provided a great example of self-restraint and self-control on the part of the contributors. However, my opinion on this subject may change if people are not prepared to exercise more self-control. The offenders (you know who you are!) should feel ashamed for their conduct. Some may be receiving private e-mails on this matter. Best regards, Steve Crietzman List Owner and "Moderator" stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

The whole Hale Bopp fiasco was - IMHO - a fine example of self fulfilling RV prophecies...Some people desparately want a great conspiracy to exisit in which governments / religious leaders / beings from the belt of Orion etc, are all involved in some sort of mutually agreed upon situation. It is always amazing to me that a standing President who cannot even conceal a moment of passion in a private office within in the Whitehouse seems to be able to conceal something so pervasive within the government that literally thousands of officials would have to be fully aware of and participate in the conspiracy. I DON"T THINK SO....So many people saw Hale-Bopp as some sort of second coming, some sort of clever alien ruse or some sort of deeper alien cover up that their minds simply made it so...I have told some of my old war stories so many times, exaggerating and adding now and then to please the audience, that I am not sure if I remember the real facts anymore...happens to lots of old soldiers...it is quite understandable how vivid imaginations and stray memories of old "B" grade black and white movies from the past could cause even someone as obviously intelligent as a college professor could also fall prey to the tricks of the mind...

hello paul good post! question : is the a way to check if there is an telepphatic overlay occured or not ? for example when remote viewing a target the tasker can add to the target definition that if the target dont exist then the viewer would get something else like the statue of liberty or will get nothing?

I hope some of you military guy's can help me with a few questions. I get pretty good general session data during RV, but want to know if there are better movement exrcises around a target. At the moment I move around like this: Move to target centre aquire, describe and sketch, Move 100ft above target centre describe and sketch. with exercises similar to these I get good data, but do you have any tips on how to fine tune this data, possibly by moving around the target, or any others? Any help would be appreciated. All the best... darryl stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

>> Darryl...(Neat name....)...anyhow, movement at a target is a tricky business at best. Not to be constantly tooting the horn of the monitors of the world...a monitor in your sessions would be able to assist you greatly in movement throughout the target areas...Now as to your own developed protocol....it is your protocol...use it if it works and don't worry what anyone else might say about it...too damned many experts in this business already...what we need is some real honest talent...I would caution you, however, not to become to rigid in your protocols especially those pertaining to movements...I tell my students the little story that it is quite possible for a person to eat a whole elephant but only if they eat it one small bite at a time...try to swallow it whole and the whole thing goes to hell....While on target, remember, it is not a liesurely tour through the park. There is probably a central theme to the target...a specific element or item which makes the target special. If you first focus on this element (while avoiding "door knobbing" - getting so close that you fail to actually see anything else ....), and spend some time with the central element, filling in the others bites of the elephant becomes easier and more clear. Try to take all of Disneyland in with one blink of the eye and you will see nothing...They key is to focus on key elements individually and then the peripherals and shazam...the magic occurs...

>I hope some of you military guy's can help me with a few questions. > snip > >Any help would be appreciated. > >All the best... > >darryl > Hi Darryl; Liam here. It seems to me you have developed a method which works well for you. Gene's answer was on the mark. I would like to expand on two of his points. First, at the military unit, determining when and where to move was the monitor's responsibility, not the viewers. The viewer might say " I think there is something important inside this structure." The monitor then MIGHT move the viewer inside the structure. The monitor is the one on the left side of his brain and capable of making logical decisions. The viewer is in contact with the signal line, and IMO is on the right side of his brain, and is probably incapable of rational thought (every notice how your spelling goes to hell when you are locked on a target. Of course that is how I spell normally) . Of course all this does not help you, if you are working without a monitor. When I work without a monitor I try limit my moves to gut level. I move where I feel I should move. A second alternative is what you are doing, "rote moves" the same for every target. The second point Gene made was the nature of the tasking. Most stage 3 and above sites, IMHO, should be fairly specific. If the tasking is to describe the physical condition of the Prime Minister, then that is what, in theory, the viewer will focus on. In this instance a description and skecth of the parliament building would not be helpful, except to tell the tasker that the viewer was close to the desired information. A third point, and I expect to take some heat rounds for this, is you may be expecting too much form a stage 3 skecth. IMO, the main value of a stage 3 skecth is that it puts the viewer in closer contact with the site. Some elements in the skecth will be correct, but others may be wrong or misplaced. The really amazing skecthes done at Ft Meade were done, not in stage 3, but at the conclusion of the session. After all this, I guess the only advice I have to offer is; If what you are doing works for you (and it seems to) then keep on doing it.

Everything I am going to say is strictly my opinion. I have no scientific data to back it up.It is based on my experience at Ft Meade and later. I believe we obtain information from the signal line by three different ways. The first is perception: You put your pen on the paper and take what the signal line gives you. This is the primary (maybe the only) way we get information in stages 1 through 3. The second way is "cueing." In stage 4 you "perceive" a structure. You then place your pen in the proper place to cue in the dimensions, color, construction, and purpose. You are now "cueing" the signal line as to the type of information you desire. The third way we obtain information is "knowing." This is information about the site that you "just know." You did not perceive it, you did not "cue" it; you just know it. How many times have you finished a site, looked at the feedback and said "I knew there was water at the site. You did not perceive it or cue and you did not report it. It was information you knew, but you were not aware you knew it. This is more obvious in ERV. an ERVer might report there is a second man here. When asked to describe the second man, the viewer might come back with a whole string of data. This was information the viewer knew already. He was not aware he knew it until the monitor asked him for the information. A carefully written summary will produce a lot of that "known" information that is not available anyplace else in the session. A word of caution; the monitor will need to decide if this is "known" information (in which case it is probably correct) or if this is post-session- analyses (in which case it is probably wrong.). Sketches drawn while writing a summary tend IMO to trigger a lot of this "known" information. Stage 4 and stage 6 sketches tend to be more accurate than stage three sketches because you have more site contact and you have access to "known" information and you can cue information while you are sketching. I did not mean to be so long winded. remember everything I said is only my opinion. Hope this helps. warm regards slainte May the force be with you Liam The blues ain't nothing but a good man feeling bad stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hi Darryl, I received your e-mail, have unpacked the file and taken a quick look. I haven't been able to do much more with it until now. I'll take a look at them tonight or tommorrow and will get back to you by e-mail about it. Promise. I'm sorry about the delay up until now. This brings up an interesting question: would anyone else like their favourite xRV sessions (or "sessions of choice") scanned and put online? I think it would be useful to have sample sessions online, and hopefully in conjuction with the CRV Training Manual which PJ is due to put online on the 5th June, should help to de-mystify CRV for many. Just a guess there, since I've not had professional xRV training or seen the manual yet. Naturally, I'm looking forward to getting to see this manual. I hope it's on time.

Absolutely true as in anything else. The two people claiming the most accurate and also the most far out RV obtained information have pretty much gotten on the stage, did their thing and came up with absolutely nothing. Their live demos came up zero %. But notice that they still have followers and student practitioners who are echoing their claims. So what is going on?

I've been around about as long and spent some time years ago looking for "Mr Psychic", the successor to Edgar Cayce, any successfull palm reader, ouija boarder, astrologer, etc. I came across ONE event that I would call a "hit". As long as I can remember, there were "fortune tellers"....even one of my aunts. ( She was indeed a family favorite in the parlor....but alas....to their credit no one bet their houses on the fortunes told.) Whatever the case, there is no widespread practice let alone accuracy and usefull results from any of these other forms of psi that I am aware of that has been publicly documeted. If there is please take my hand and lead me humbly to it. RV came on the scene quite differently than other psi.....government funded...documented results....a "recently" designed methodology....scientific studies.....widely listened to radio publicity....and the internet. I don't think any other form of psi has ever been given the same kind of publicity. Usually, it was that a specific individual could perform a specific kind of psi exteremely well.

Aloha Guys, Saw my name mentioned and thought I would say hello. I have worked pretty hard with the help of several others in putting the website up showing exactly what we are all up to out here in the Islands. We have tried along the way to look at everything as well as do our best to entice some of the CRV folks out for a working vacation.. We make no claims about unrealistic accuracy or the future of the world. A trip to our website should show we are trying very hard and producing some fair results. We have about 40 active members in the Guild and the big plus is that we get to train, evaluate, retrain, and practice practice practice. Currently we find that communication between ourselves, meeting, classes, email, phone etc is a very good support base for results. The feeling of being a part of a team or group makes a comfort zone for us to tackle problem solving. Any specific inquires just send us some email. Aloha Glenn stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Practical problem solving is a worthwhile use of psi skills. If one had the help of an MD or a psychiatrist, it would be quite easy to set up exercises along this line. I am thinking of remote diagnosis, which can yield information that is helpful to all concerned. Now, if you check out "Mind Reach," by Targ & Puthoff, you will see a well written and extensive description of the first SRI remote viewing studies. There is a large collection of research literature on remote viewing--try your local university library, under the heading "parapsychology." Re. practical problem solving, I can offer two examples. (Please bear in mind that most of my rv work is either astronomical or, if related to people, confidential.) First, when the Hale-Bopp Companion photograph was published and Courtney Brown announced he had rv'd it, and identified it as an alien object, I rv'd the comet myself to see if he was right. I hoped it was true. (I've seen amazing things in space and I've always hoped that something large would come close enough to be photographed by astronomers.) I was disappointed to find that there was only ordinary comet material present. There was a lot of this material, because it's a big comet...but there were no alien artifacts. Then I rv'd the photograph and saw the hoaxer gloating about his success. I thereupon sent Art Bell an email informing him that there was no Hale-Bopp Companion and the photo was a deliberate fraud. Bell never answered my email. He continued to have Ed Dames on his show, for reasons that appear to be related somehow to money. Want a copy of the email? --Re the cylinder filled with brown substance, the plant pathogen Dames has mentioned, don't worry about it. It isn't there. Item 2. It's undignified, but well, here goes. When the Paula Jones story *first broke* months ago, it was mentioned that in her deposition she described the President's intimate anatomy. I was curious & rv'd the situation. I sent emails to a few women friends about the result, because I thought it was funny. I'm sure they'll remember this email and at least one of them would be kind enough to serve as a witness if required. Eventually an English tabloid broke the story. I was right. It's not hard to get good rv results if the problem is of intrinsic interest. > Don't all forms of psi require practice? Sure. Every skill requires practice. > Whatever the case, there is no widespread practice let alone accuracy > and usefull results > from any of these other forms of psi that I am aware of that has been > publicly documeted. > If there is please take my hand and lead me humbly to it. Try a good university library. Psychokinesis has been very extensively studied, for instance.

Hi Rich, Shelia, List, >>Whatever the case, there is no widespread practice let alone accuracy >>and usefull results from any of these other forms of psi that I am >>aware of that has been publicly documeted. >>If there is please take my hand and lead me humbly to it. >RV came on the scene quite differently than other psi.....government >funded...documented results....a "recently" designed methodology.... >scientific studies.....widely listened to radio publicity....and the internet. Which all makes this subject a lot more interesting to the general public and science-minded folks - we're not talking your average psychic here, we're talking about a long-term project, funded by government agencies with millions of dollars of tax-payer money, to research, develop and use psychic ability under a strict, scientific protocol developed in some of the most prestigious scientific institutions in the US. It gives the subject a lot more credibility, and was no doubt enough to make even the hardened skeptic sit up and pay attention. Where I have a problem, and perhaps you'll share my concern here, is that so much of this data isn't out on the table yet. Rich, you are always calling for demos, and this is exactly what I'd like to see too. It's not considered to be "doubting" a musician if you use them to demo their talent. You want to see a demonstration, to gauge it for yourself, and have them show off their skills. Granted, it's a very different field, but the principle is still the say: show me the goods, I'm interested to see how you'll do! Asking a person to perform is not to imply they can't do it any more than asking the musician to do it. But perhaps we like to see it for our own eyes, rather than rely on second-hand stories. I've read through a lot of the scientific papers that have been published about psi (what I could understand of them! ;) While they are fascinating, and if confirmable, offer extremely compelling evidence, I have one nagging problem with accepting their findings, and that's we have to rely on the word of the scientists' conclusions and papers. There is no way to independently verify their findings unless we own our own lab. We can't get ahold of the data they used to reach their conclusions - we can only see their conclusions. Because we can't take a look at their FULL data, we can't do what so many researchers, including Joe McMoneagle, has said is important in this field, which is they need to be open to peer-review, criticism, etc. We can't do that by looking at their conclusions alone. We can't critique the conclusions (and so "test" them) because we can't see the "working out", so to speak. We can only see half the deck, we only know the end-result of their research, and we have no way of telling if their research was conducted properly, without error, until we get to look at EVERYTHING, or have that possibility for people who do want to obtain it. FAILING THAT, I think the only remaining option is the one that Rich has been calling for, for god-knows-how long: demos! Public, open, demos! So we set up our *own* lab, online. A demo lab. We have protocols, we have viewers, we follow a set of lab protocols to perform all the tests, sessions, collect all the data, and work with whatever we find. Just like a real lab would. Except it'd be an online lab. Okay, so perhaps it'd be a little more amateurish, but at least we'd all get to see everything. The entire process should be open to criticism, peer- review, etc. and should adapt and evolve as people throw criticism it's way, until the point where there's no more criticism because nothing wrong can be found in how the experiments are being done. Then, the real "fun" begins - people do their sessions, and the hits and misses start to be tallied. We start to build up our very own statistics, we can make our own conclusions from it, perhaps write the odd report of our own summarising how things are going and what we've found so far, etc. The most important thing? Absolutely everything, from drawing board to all the conclusions we make, will be on the website (or wherever), for all to see, to examine, to criticise, etc. No holes barred. I think if this sort of project existed, and we started to get the higher-than-chance results that the labs are claiming, we can say fairly safely "something is happening, and it's got nothing to do with our procedures etc." We can't say this about the labs because we can't see how the experiments were run. We have only the faith in the scientists to go on. But scientists are notorious for not trusting each other. Why do you think there are other labs out there trying to duplicate other lab's finding? Because they don't trust, or distrust: they're repeating the experiment so they can "see all, know all" and thus be able to tell if the *original* lab's data/conclusions was accurate. I've heard that oftentimes sloppy procedures have been used in the past that allow room for possible fraud, although I am not making these charges against the labs we're all familiar with. The point is, that until the entire process is openned up to proper peer-review (examination by peers) and criticism, we only know what the labs tell us. That's not comfortable for people who like to "know all, see all." In other words, scientists (whether they have a Ph.D. or they're just sitting at home reading science books, visiting websites and wanting to do their own bedroom experiments.) >> This is the attitude that baffles me the most. If we are waiting for >> someone to prove high hit rates, and not willing to take say even a 30% rate of >> success, which is an improvement over our normal state of consciousness, what is >> this game about?........ Actually, I'd be satisfied with a demonstrable and consistent above-chance accuracy rate *where the entire process has been fully open to examination and peer-review*, although if it is dangerously close to chance levels, I'd be more inclined to suspect the possibility that perhaps some unknown, unseen methodology errors may be responsible. As the controversial Ray Hyman stated, methdological flaws are often never spotted, and have assumed to all have been eliminated, only for years later a flaw is discovered, casting doubt on earlier experiments and results. The further from chance, and if protocols are virtually waterproof (I doubt it is possible to eliminate every possible vulnerability, all the time), then the more inclined I am to suspect some kind of paranormal functioning is really at work. Right now, I am painfully trying to tight-rope between the 'skeptic' and 'supporter' position of remote-viewing. I see merit in both arguments. I believe more information is needed before we can settle the debate for good, which is why I have so forcefully and brutefully pursued the Freedom of Information Act, and have attempted to gain information in other ways as well (such as requesting further information from labs involved in this research, and being cautiously supportive of projects such as the UT Skeptic site.) I hate not having solid answers, and I really don't feel there are any water-tight answers yet. Some might say I'm asking for the impossible. Well, if that's true, I'm going to lead an interesting life, on a constant quest for new information.. :-) >I'll buy that.....really....I spent a few bucks years ago in search >of...and again recently.

I have a query I hope all you CRV'ers, and military guys can help with: At stage 4, alot of good info comes through from the target, But then for stage 5, the signal line is broken and info then comes from storage within the brain synapses. After this Do we go back to the signal line for stage 6 or is all the information from stage 5 onwards from the synapses? For me it kind of feels like stage 5 is a hiccup between the flow of info that seems so flowing in clusters in stage 4 and 6. How important is stage 5 to the whole process? thanks for any help...

Listen, fella, this response is disgusting and completely out of line on this list. I did not flame anyone. I offered an example of a remote viewing in which I announced the result before the information was publicly known, and confirmation was subsequently available. I point out that I did not describe the information gained by the viewing on this list, or in any other public place. The Presidential privacy was not invaded by my disclosure of the fact that I was able to rv him. This is again, out of line. Where is our list moderator?

Well, you can order people not to think certain thoughts or entertain certain images, but you'll have just as much luck ordering bees not to buzz. I think it is more important to educate students in the value of privacy, and the appropriate use of any information they may obtain. You are not committing an error by obtaining information, because we can all do that by reflex when we learn proper techniques. But if you learn someone's secrets you are responsible for what you do with them. Note that the chain of circumstances that led me to rv the President started when he displayed himself to a woman who did not want that to happen. He is a public figure and not an inhibited man in any case. Furthermore, elements of Ms. Jones's description have become public knowledge without any effort from me, so my remarks on the list do not further infringe his privacy. And I point out again that I did not describe the anatomical feature--I merely mentioned that I had rv'd it and I was right. With reference to my "slick methods"-- I knew I'd get recognition if I hung around this list long enough--very early in my lessons I teach students how to preserve their privacy against remote viewing by other persons.

Perhaps, the topic should be Ethical Responsibility in Remote Viewing or the Code of a Remote Viewer. Then perhaps people wouldn't have to be "defending" themselves against unathorized intrusion in a person private life. I mean...if I find myself intruding on someones lifestyle, it should be equally fair for someone to intrude on mine, wouldn't we say? But since I wouldn't do that...I would like to think the same privacy is due me. This kind of mentality only serve to foster tresspasing and espionage (which I am sure there is enough of it going around already) and rampant degradation of a tool that could be utilize for the "benefit" of Mankind. I don't think scanning the Prez helps in this regard. And so that we know that I am biased...I am a supporter of the Man, whether is sexual appetite is verocious or not. I couldn't think of a "better" Presidents that could be in the White House today. But the Man is what we have. Why degrade what is in the tabloid and newspaper already. By the way, I am not here to argue politics. I believe Gene has properly address this invasion of privacy...as much as he considers himself a "Celtic Bear." At least he knows where to curbs his limits. This issue (Ethics), of course, falls under philosophy, and as we know...philosophers have flogged this horse to death and arrive at no pragmatic conclusion. I don't see this being resolved anytime soon on a mailing list like this. But before establishing a "defensive" posture and start the RV Cold War...it would be nice to codify the "proper" behavior for a Remote Viewer. That would be far more rewarding. And sure, just like there are "evil" doctors out there who would violate their Codes of Ethics, at least it serves to maintain balance and differentiate the bad apples from the good ones. The Code of a Remote Viewer would serve the Remote Viewers of the world just as well. electrix stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Shelley, > I'd like to see a discussion on the list, of methods of defending > against remote viewing. > > Is anyone up to this? You can try, it can't hurt! We need some new brain food after recent events, that's for sure. I already realise that some people may want to turn around and say "this is not possible, case closed", but we have to allow discussion on this topic, even if it's controversial. I do not want to get to the situation where controversial topics are being banned because some people over-react when the subject comes up. I encourage critical questions to/about remote-viewing and remote-viewers on this list. I do not expect anyone to have to accept the validity of psi based on 'faith in experts', and would rather people ask the difficult questions. (I see 'faith in experts' tantamount to the problems of scientism, as discussed earlier. When it comes to RV, I encourage people to have faith in facts and figures, not people. Everyone, keep replies polite, and if you've got something to say that you are not sure about posting (possibly offensive? Possibly impolite?), first send it to the list moderator for review: steve@..., and I will let you know if I feel the post is appropriate for posting. [--All the below is not to be quoted in public replies--] I would like to add that this is how I see the (previous!) situation, an elaboration. Shelley posted a post, in which she may or may not have been referring to the President's private parts when she said she'd "viewed the case." I would consider it impolite and offensive to talk about people's sexual parts on this list, even if they *are* in the public eye, but even worse so when remote-viewing is brought into the fold. She certain *did* refer to the Prez's private parts, but did she *view* them? Her language on that part is difficult to decern. Gene's reply, while heated, is certainly understandable. If we take that small step and say that Shelley was not posting about having viewed the Prez's private parts, just the case in general, and Gene misunderstood (giving both the benefit of the doubt), then that would just about "clear" both individuals from causing deliberate harm. But if we take a different small step - that Shelley *was* saying she'd viewed the Prez's private parts, then Gene's reply is tolerable and understandable under the circumstances, but that Shelley's was suspicious to say the least. And finally, if Shelley's post was meant innocently enough, just bringing the subject up under perhaps the assumption that people might get a quick smirk out of it and the subject would drop, then it would be Gene who really started off the fireworks, by turning around and calling Shelley many nasty names. So: we can see all as innocent, just Shelley as innocent *or* just Gene as innocent. Are any "proven guilty"? I'd say no. So, who to "blame"? As List Moderator, what matters to me is the smooth running of this list, not in casting blame or in dishing out punishment. I feel it necessary to air on the side of caution, without being too harsh, in order to keep this list from going down a questionable path. Shelley and Gene must now have their posts screened before posting to the list. This will continue to be the case for at least a couple of weeks, maybe later. After a certain amount of time, and I feel their posts have all been non- objectionable in that period, I will probably allow them to post as everyone else does - unscreened - until/if another problem arises. I will do the same for any other questionable subjects and posters that arise here. This is now official list policy for dealing with "a situation," although by no means do I relinquish the right to use a different judgement in different circumstances, with perhaps varying degrees of harshness. I have not banned anyone, I have not suspended posting privilleges for anyone. I am merely keeping a closer eye on Shelle and Gene's posts by pre-screening them, and this situation will probably be temporary. I think this is reasonable. My hope is that this will restore the list to normal, without having to resort to more drastic measures. I hope everyone will allow this topic to end now. Discussion of RV ethics is welcome to continue, if no mention of sexual behaviour is included.

As one who is a great believer in the ability of people to train themselves, and as one who has had up to Stage 4 training with Paul, I can say that if I had had the manual I would have 'gone it alone' and as a result would have missed a whole world of information that is just not present in the manual. If you are in the position of having to forgo training at present, I would encourage you to go to PJ's site and scour all the additional information available there in the archives to add to the information in the manual. Pay particular attention to what Paul, Gene, Joe, and Lyn have to say in response to questions, and continue to ask your questions here. Note that even though PJ has discontinued her public work re: RV, she is continuing her training with Lyn. Thanks to Steve, the process is ongoing. Shelia stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hello everyone, I was just going through my drawers today and came across.. some playing cards! My mind immediately flitted back to when Lyn, Paul and Joe were on the Art Bell show, and Lyn was talking about his success with black and red cards (so-called "binary" experiments because there are only two possible answers, with a 50% chance of each card being red or black.) I remembered Lyn claiming he'd managed 58.?% accuracy, and Joe McMoneagle once scoring 100% on 52 cards.. versus the average Joe's 50%. As a "semi" skeptic, I would find this kind of clear-cut demonstration/test of psi, showing these kinds of high scores, accuracy, VERY impressive. Then my thoughts flited to the UT skeptics site and all the criticisms that had surrounded it, plus all the confusing statistics we're always hearing about psi when it comes to remote-viewing distant targets: something (statistically speaking) that is far more difficult to analyse and understand for the laymen. So I thought.. what about trying a real, online, binary, black-or-red card psi test, which we can all take part in and contribute in? So no one could accuse me of cheating, I could encrypt the answer to the sequence of red and black cards into a file, and provide the key to unlock it after everyone had submitted their results. (Does anyone here use PGP who can vouch for this?) How about it? Anyone game? If enough people are interested in participating in these experiments, I'll look into drawing up some basic protocols to make sure the experiment is conducted fairly and properly. I'd welcome comments. And as for those of you who'd like anonymity - people can choose to be anonymous if they like, just like the UT skeptic site. I would like to be able to give people ID numbers though, like in the former RV unit. This will allow us to do experiments and better analysis later, e.g. focusing in on those people who seem to show a special talent at this, and perhaps working with them separately. It also allows us to refer to people individually without naming them, e.g. "viewers #4, #7 and #8 seem to have some very significant scores, obtaining a fairly consistent 60% accuracy rate. Viewers #1, #2 and #6 are getting ambiguous scores of 53%, while viewers #3, #5 and #9 are getting scores of between 48-52%." But why black and red cards? Because it should be an easy enough experiment to run, and the results shouldn't be too ambiguous. If the averages all point to a sum of 48-52%, with no exceptions, we can rule out that psi has been sufficiently demonstrated.. but that doesn't necessarily mean psi won't work in a different situation or different experiment, etc. It just means we wouldn't of had luck demonstrating it in this experiment. And if it shows a higher score than, say, 55% consistently? Well, I'm be blown away by it :) But I would encourage others to do similar experiments. I wouldn't want people to take my word for it. I'd welcome other people running experiments of their own, which they're in charge of and can be confident of the results of. Or perhaps we can change Experiment Managers after a certain number of trials, and someone else gets to randomise their cards, type it up, encrypt it, post it, etc. Any comments or suggestions on this idea would be welcome. Anyone interested? Would anyone like to take part? Anyone got any comments or ideas they'd like to share on this idea? (Note to Viewers: Would this kind of test be in the domain of Associative Remote Viewing? My point of view is that people should be allowed to use whatever methods they like. The interest will probably be on those who are scoring the highest marks, and from a scientific point of view, method is not important: results are. People will probably be monitoring those who are scoring continuously higher than 50%, and whatever form of psi is being used seems here to be unimportant, although declaring what method they are using might be interesting for those of us who are monitoring. Comments, suggestions anyone?) Best regards, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Howdy Stargators, I just got on this list in the last couple of days so it may be that the aforementioned book by Paul Dong and Thomas Raffill has already been discussed... If it has not, I'm curious about the thoughts of any others who have read this. (ISBN 1569247153, Marlowe, 1997, $12.95) From the back cover: "China's vast population, encouraged by a government that assiduously promotes psychic research, has developed an unusually high percentage of practitioners with psychic abilities. It is estimated that China now has five thousand psychic children, three to five-hundred psychic adults, and more than thirty super psychics who can be categorized in three essential ways: Healing Psychics (including cancer and AIDS healing) Predictive Psychics (able to envision the past and future) Regular Psychics (includes the ability, for example, to stop running carrs, walk through walls, change colors and molecular structures; it includes also telekinesis and unobservable flight.) These powers naturally came to the attention of the Chinese government, who wish to exploit psychic energy for military purposes." Regards, TB stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hi Shelia, Thank you for your thoughtful post. I am glad that the CRV Manual is finally online. If anything, I think it has reassured me a little on CRV and convinces me that training is probably a good idea But I am VERY glad it IS online. At least I had a rough idea of what CRV is about now, and have a good idea of what I'll be paying for. I'm a "try before you buy" kind of person, or at least, a "show me before I buy" person :) I think three things would convince me to pay for RV training (IF I could afford it): (a) knowing what I was paying for (which I now do, thanks to the manual being online - - PJ has been ever-lasting thanks :) (b) seeing example sessions and good recommendations so I know what the training and teacher are like (recommendations from friends are always helpful if you're not sure what you're getting yourself into..), and (c) Seeing a demonstration - "try before you buy." This is the one thing I'm still waiting for. Hopefully, if the Red and Black Card Test/Binary Test idea picks up, is workable, and enough people show an interest to make it worthwhile, it won't be long before I get a chance to see a test being performed. Then I'd be prepared to fork out my cash and get the professional tutoring. The CRV Manual has reassured me that professional training is important, the kind of reassurance that I needed. I wasn't convinced until now that CRV could not be lead from a manual. Even now, I think, given enough practice, it's still possible to learn CRV from the manual, albeit very difficultly.. >If you are in the position of having to forgo training at present, I >would encourage you to go to PJ's site and scour all the >additional information available there in the archives to add to >the information in the manual. I would have to agree with this. From my point of view, it was always the case I knew what to do, what not to do, what to look out for, what to avoid, what I should expect, what the limits were, what the weaknesses were, etc.. just.. not HOW to do it! :-) The CRV Manual answers that one, final, nagging question. Even if it does take a bit of work to understand it in places ;-) PJ's Viewer List was an invaluable tool (here in the UK that means "more than just valuable", BTW), and with the publication of the CRV Manual, I expect there would have been a barrage of new posts from new CRVrs who are manual-trained.. or are being manual-trained and need some help.. :) >Pay particular attention to what Paul, Gene, Joe, and Lyn have to say >in response to questions, and continue to ask your questions here. >Note that even though PJ has discontinued her public work re: RV, she >is continuing her training with Lyn. She's helped us so much in moderating a forum where everyone can develop their CRV skills, that I think it's only fair we give her the time to develop her own skills now. But she'll be missed. >Thanks to Steve, the process is ongoing. Well I try my best, even though my stubborn "no moderating posts" policy occassionally causes problems.. :-) I think there may be a temptation when moderating posts, to get into a situation, where you are making judgements on what is an appropriate or non-appropriate post, though your opinions might disagree with other people's. And if you're not sure if a post is appropriate, and you have high traffic, it might be tempting to put it to one side 'for now', and then just never get around to it again, as you start dealing with lots of other peoples you have to accept/refuse, accept/refuse, accept/refuse.. etc. I would like to try and keep this list open and unmoderated for as long as possible, and only made requests for topics to end if I think some list members are straying from discussion about serious psi/rv discussion. Not only does that save me from a lot of bother, but it means the list is somewhat more liberal, even if that makes it a little less secure. But after having a 'secure' list for over a year, I thought it would be interesting to try cracking open the floodgates a little, and allowing people to exercise their good judgement in deciding if their post is acceptable or not. I'll only complain if I think things are straying too far (such as the recently shot-down topic..) Best regards, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Gene, You should have been at Larger Universe if you want to see "free and open debate." Dozens of people digging at each other, making constant insults and personal threats, being rude and offensive, hurting people's feelings, and frightening off a lot of people. If you want a list where there are no rules, where people can insult others freely, be downright rude, and talk about everything from psi to UFOs, to alien abductions, government conspiracies, paranoia, big foot, Yeti, ghosts, .. go ahead and unsubscribe. This list *does* have boundaries: that is: polite and intelligent debate, not down-and-dirty insults. Am I alone in thinking this? Do people really want a free-for-all flamefest mailing list with no boundaries? Or would people rather I only limit posts that are off-topic or offensive? Because that's all I've been doing. Trying to keep things stable, friendly, and intelligent. I do not operate a moderated board. I let posts through. But when people like you and Shelley start insulting each other in public, talking about sex scandels etc.. on what is supposed to be a list about psychic functioning and professional remote-viewing procedures and methodologies, scientific protocols, etc.. it affects the entire list. I have received quite a few emails from people who have been upset by all this already. Does anyone here remember Larger Universe's BBS? It turned into a grave yard and was closed down because of heavy and constant abuse. It was a "free board." No rules. It died because of insults and abuse. Do you really want a list where people can freely and willingly insult others? That's not intelligent debate. Or where the signal-to- noise ratio is about 5:1? Then try a Usenet newsgroup. If you do, perhaps you should leave. I do not want to be seen running a BBS like that. I want this to be a professional forum for serious, intelligent, adult discussion on psi and RV topics. I would hope I'm not alone in that opinion. Comments are welcome at the Open Chat BBS, but *please* le's try and get back on-topic folks?

After reading it, I have to say I agree with you completely. The manual uses very technical language, and there was more than a few times I felt like turning around and asking "how do I do this part..? Do I learn this in stages?", only.. no teacher was standing behind me :) I think the publication of this manual will, in anything, *encourage* people to seek training - because they know what they'll be buying, and why the training is important, after reading/skimming through the manual. >I have been taught basic CRV, >and have had the manual for nearly a year now, but still have hundreds of >questions that unfurl the more you practice.

I'm hoping, if things get back to normal around here, that people will be able to ask structure-related questions and seek half the answers they need to "learn" CRV, from this list. Although I by no means expect the CRV manual or an email group to "replace" professional training; I believe that if anything, it will encourage more people to seek training, now fully aware that learning it from a manual is neigh-on impossible, certainly very tough. >The best thing the manual can >achieve are stopping some of the fraudulent people starting to take over the >RV field.

[stargate] Red and Black Cards Dear Steve and List, An interesting idea, especially for this novice. I am interested! Oddly, I've been playing a similar game with myself lately with a software CD called Avery Cardoza's "Casino". In it is a roulette game which basically mimics the real thing. I stink at the numbers part of this game, I can assure you. One day however, I was astounded by how many times I was able to "hit" with betting the color black vs. the color red. (I almost wrote Cardoza himself to ask if the software is 'fixed'!) Here is a question to put in the back of your mind regarding red vs black, at least in terms of roulette...do you suppose that because black attracts, and keeps HEAT that this would be why the blacks overwhemingly appeared as I mock-played? With cards, it would be different, yes? At any rate, I'm still testing this out....perhaps I can give more feedback as I progress. Best to all, Laura stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Re: [stargate] Signal direction Actually, Mary, this is interesting as I'd never given "travel" much thought when it comes to doing this. For me the senses of space and distance disappear and are irrelevant. There is simply a tuning into "something" which is neither near nor far. I've heard CRV' ers refer to the "signal line", a metaphor which, to me, suggests distance. I imagine pluggin myself into a cable which feeds me a signal from some distant point. I like the metaphor but it's not my experience. I don't know if your thinking that the viewers "send" their awareness somewhere could have anything to do with the viewing anomalies you've been experienceing lately. After all, each of us has to have _some_ kind of simplistic model to explain something which is probably ineffable. No matter how we conceptualize it (within limits, I suppose), it works. May as well agree with Liam that it's magic. It's as good as any other theory. :<) By the way, never heard a "dipstick question" from you on VWR. Don't expect to encounter them here either. >Dipstick question.

An interesting aside: When my children were young (ages 10-12) I did an experiment with them to see if they could "feel" color. I placed a series of 8 different colored cards face down and asked them to hold there hand over each one and tell me what color it felt like. I cued them that the greens to blues and violets felt cooler than the yellows, oranges, reds. They all (my neice also participated) had high hit rates of 70-80% on three runs each. They being young and enthusiastic and having been told by me that it was possible to feel color did not approach the task with any skepticism and I believe that partially explained their success rates. (By the way, I was blind to which color was where in the sequence). Just a fun thing to try. Shelia stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Having experience two aspect of RV...TDS and Workhop RV Healing, I have "felt" a type of spatial sense. In the Workshop scenario I had an impulse to "go somewhere" instead of maintaning the Workshop RV static type movement in having someone enter my space. In TDS RV The images pops and hovers slightly above and outside my head. I kind of envision this as an extroverting experience. In the Workshop RV, I am "looking at the inside of the mind." Biofeedback meditation provides even more of inner spatial field more so than the above. There I learn what it is to experience fleeting images with the intention of "grabbing it" before it evanesce, but way inside my head. One of my favorite exercises is visualizing.

Hello, My 14 year old son and I have frequently played a game suggested by Rob Abbot where you place 5 cards in a tableau and one turns his back and the other visualizes which card hes thinking about. My son and I both scored with p values < .01, but he was usually < .00001 using the binomial theorem for stats. Also if the sender "gazzed" at the card like in mirror gazzing "burning" in the position it got higher p values. If we used colors instead of postition to identify the cards the pvalues dropped to almost insignificant. So for us the color was not as strong a signal as was the relative position in the tableau.

Hello Electrix, John Grimes posted on psi list one time a report from a schiztophrenic who grew up with such severe delusions that he could not tell reality from imagination. However, he was able to finally screen his hallucinations by testing there content for stability and something else he did not clarify to well. This way he taught himself to functiontion in the normal world, AND ALSO he found that a third class of object exhisted the precongnitive vision. This was qualitatively different from hallucinations and from reality. It was much more stable and unchangeable than imagination, but not as much as reality. I am still trying to find him to get more incite into this fascinating screening process, which is at the heart of determining a true signal from noise.

I just wanted to make a few statements re: red and black cards first, to explain why I was interested in this kind of test. I based my own comments about colours on something that LynB said on the Art Bell show near to the beginning of the show (I know it was in the first hour, I believe the first 30 minutes.) Lyn mentioned he'd been doing an experiment involving red and black cards, and I'm sure the number he mentioned was 58.3% The amount of times I've re-listened to that Art Bell show! (..Mostly because only about 10% of his shows are credible, if that.. with 90% gone, it's either listen to repeats all the time, or tune into his usual array of sensationalism and fear-mongering to kill time..) Re: Your own experiment. I'm not sure I completely understand. Perhaps I'm just being a dumb Englishman and not listening/ reading closely enough.. ;-) What's a "tableau"? I'm sorry if this sounds like a dumb question - I've -heard- the word before, but don't know what it means or is refers to. Sorry. Perhaps it's an American/English cultural difference of some kind? Could you tell me a little more about this experiment? Was the name of the game to guess the colour, a symbol on the card? Perhaps if I knew what a tableau was, I'd have my answer. So, what's a tableau, Bill? Over to you! :) Best regards, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

I have seen the profile on pj's site and decided to give it a try, BUt it was real hard, I could not decide where to put things like dimentional data. My sessions contain clusters like: layered, structured, beams, supports. Very solid, thick, surface, floor. how do I break this down for profileing. Do I break it down? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated as at the moment I am finding profileing harder than learning Rv itself. All the best... Darryl We came... We saw...

My sessions contain clusters like: The session profiling you find on PJ's site is not something we did at the RV unit, but rather something Lyn Buchanan later developed as a way of making it possible to create data-bases to help track viewer performance. As such it is very useful, and you are certainly free to try it. I recommend to my students, however, that they NOT get involved in it until they are well advanced--not because it isn't useful, but because I think it gets in the way of learning to RV. It's hard enough to get around to doing the session. When confronted with the further drudgery of analyzing it all and breaking it down into various categories, you end up with two problems: 1) a great deal of inertia to overcome and a procedure that takes a lot of the "fun" out of RV; and 2) too much of an emphasis on analysis, when the whole idea is to get AWAY from analysis. This is not meant as a criticism of Lyn, merely an explication of my own assessment of this feature. I'd say I hope that helps, but it probably doesn't ;-) Enjoy!

Hi Steve, I'd be happy to explain the experiment a little further. It's not mine though its Rob Abbott a psychic in Portland, Ore. He said this was the easiest way he knew for beginners to demonstrate psi. And it certainly was for us. you place 4-5 cards in a geometrical arrangement. x x x x x for instance. then one partner turns his back closes his eyes and on signal thinks of NOTHING. The other partner focuses 100% of his intenstion on one of the 5 cards at the same time he says "blank your mind" ( its hard to keep a blank mind for to long even for Americans). The "receiver" then turns back and points to the correct card. You can use the bionmial theorem for calculating your probability. The sender is just as important as the receiver. My Son got the first 5 trials right and a longer series gave very small p vales (< .00001 that it was chance). I was a little worse p<.01-.001. Now repeating the experiment with red and black playing cards and cueing on color only gave worse results p<.05 at best. Cueing on numbers alone was also bad, whether or not it was a face cards gave intermediate results. So it seemed that geometrical position was an easier thing to cue psi with than color to us. Of course I did not try feeling the colors as temperature variations as Sheila suggested, and color differences on playing cards are not as extreme as one might wish, but I think there is some basis for thinking geometry is an easier cue than color. Yours Warmly, Bill Pendergrass Is that clear now Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

That is interesting...hopefully John gets on this line so that I can bug him to post the report again. I find this area to be very key in determining signal from noise. As a musician, I remember having to learn scales, intervals and certain tones. That part of my "hearing" at first wasn't there. So I had to learn how to listen to tones in my head to differentiate. I was able to establish relative pitch, although I understand some people are able to attain perfect pitch. This would imply that if we can attain command of frequency sound vibration by extended our Musical Hearing perception....perhaps we are not too far in determining Image Visual vibration by extending our Visual Image perception potential. I am exploring... who knows. electrix Bill Pendergrass wrote: > Hello Electrix, > > John Grimes posted on psi list one time a report from a schiztophrenic > who grew up with such severe delusions that he could not tell reality > from imagination.

Dear Electrix, the music analogy sounds quite cogent, but you lost me with that last bit. Could you expand on it . Also the self healed schizophrenic said that stability of a vision was not duration, but rather changeability. REmember in a dream looking at your dream watch. the face will always change and be nonsense, never stable. But true psychic visions, were essentially unchangeable for as long as they lasted. Ring any bells you RVers? I would love to hear him expand on that concept, and also on the effect of various treatments and drugs on the psychic as opposed to the imaginary visions.

Hi Bill! >Is that clear now Steve. Yes thanks, I understand now :) I know now what you mean by "position", and I think that psi is probably better at doing certain things better than others, or at least.. we're better at interpreting/receiving/understanding psi data better on certain assignments then others, such as pointing to a correct card - identifying by position - than by, say, choosing the right colour between red/black. But I also had another reason for proposing the red/black card experiment/ test, and that is I would like to construct some clear, straightforward, black-and-white demonstration/test/measurement of psi, that can be performed online and in which everyone can participate. Red/black would seem to be a simple and effective way of testing psi, which shouldbe useful/interesting *whatever* "side of the fence" people happen to be on. Skeptics get to monitor a mini "test for psi", though I'd hope skeptics would not base their entire belief/disbelief in psi on one online experiment :) And supporters (and open-minded skeptics who become convinced/ supportive of psi through all this), get to see the difference between chance vs. actual accuracy in the experiments. I've ever heard statistics of 25%, 30%, 33%, 35%, 40%, 50%, 75%, 85%, 100% (and probably a few I've missed) referred to as "the accuracy of remote- viewing." To make things even MORE confusing, the particular answer you choose for accuracy depends on how you wish to view the results. (e.g. is it 35% accuracy overall, or just 70% accurate, half the time? etc. etc. ad infinitum) I think, for skeptics and supporters alike, a way to reliably measure and test for psi, in a way we can all participate and be involved with, wouldbe very beneficial. An online system to explore the boundaries, abilities, weaknesses and short-comings of psi, I believe, would be useful and interesting, whatever 'side of the fence' you happen to be on. Would anyone be interested in taking part in such a 'exploring the boundaries of psi' online test? Thanks for your contributions, Bill. I'll certainly be considering everyone's ideas about how we could do this, and if there's enough support for the idea of some kind of online testing system, I'll get to work on setting one up, in which we can all be involved, at each step of the way. But of course, it depends how interested people are in the idea first. Anyone interested out there? Or even intrigued? :-) Best always, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

To expand on it would be pretentious of me since I am still a baby crawling in imagery. But I have notice that their is a difference between fleeting images (as in observing images during biofeedback) and let's say picture memories (when someone ask to remember something recently). For lack of better word...one seems to be "lighter" the other more "concrete"...or more, let's say "present." I am assuming there is some kind of frequency level resonation to these imagery. The reason the ear can perceive different tones is because they are resonating at a certain frequency level. Middle tone "A" is vibrating at a 440Hz. or there abouts (if my memory serves me right). Dreams, on the other hand, is a type of memory which has the quality of etherial...imagination. Turns out that I am also a natural artist (although, I have abandon exercising that aspect of me). But in developing a painting, I would imagine scenes , scenarios...which remind me of dreaming. Come to think of it, one of my favorite painters is Salvador Dali. He used hypnogogic state to paint some of his masterpieces. He would device a way of alerting him just when he was about to fall asleep and then visualize what he was about to paint. So, I think where I lost you is in the arbitrary assignment of frequency level to each mode of mental imagery. Presently, I don't think that kind of stuff can be measured. I can only go by "texture" at this point. electrix stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hello Steve, I'm definitely interested and would participate ( along with my more psychic son). The simpler the test the better, than statistics can be uesd to assess the results relative to chance. Terms like 25% , 50%, 75% etc. don't mean much statistically. Even 1% success could be way above chance and 95% could be only chance depending on the way the experiment is set up and the number of possible answers. Also you need almost immediate feedback to keep the players going, and computation of odds. Also, a comparison of scores with other RVers, and psychics might be challenging. It could be called "Beat the Psychic--challenge". Hey I'd even donate in on the winning pot! Good Ideas in my book, Bill stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hello Bevy, I owe you an e-mail, I believe...but I am getting swamped with mailing list communication, I am unable to get around to every posting. Each day, it seems acknowledgements fall behind. I have Steve to blame for my resurgent activity in posting..rats! I was suppose to be on a sabbath. I sent for your Correspondence kit just the other day. I also listen to your interview at Sightings. Your views align very well with mine regarding ESP. Through out these years I have developed ideas that are in tangent with things you said in the interview. It is always great to hear that I am not the only looney in town, LOL! So, I am looking forward in exploring the path you have already set. A friend of mine once did a Psychometric reading on me. I was astounded at what he could tell about me from holding my watch. He dipped in the present (about a certain person in my family and my feeling and relationship with her) and then told me about my future. Although, I can't say it was a concrete (it was somewhat general) future reading, I can say that what came to pass was not so far off. Of course, at the other end of the skeptic stick, we can say it was self-prophecy...but no doubt, he had me convinced that our vibration embeds itself in what we wear. The signal direction...logically stated, would necessarily have to be static. Of course all this is irrelevant to the results and more of interest to anatonomist. electrix stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

lol the color-sensing experiments was one of the basic skills being taught by the Soviets where I came in in their training processes. It is still one of the mainstays in thepractical training process of PSI we use, as it is a 'doorway' to the extended sense of touch.An extended version of this color experiment is in my next book as well. Aries Productions has just completed a new 25 card Color-sensing Deck which is available from Aries, Inc. Dept. L, POB 29396, St. Louis, Mo. 63126 USA at $6.50 plus $1.75 postage US, $3 foreign. for these very interesting experiments. Working with children is rewarding as they tend to DO what you tell them they can do. It is best to explain that it is merely a game, however, for obvious reaons. Many who are working on developing the PSI abilities from telepathy and psychic touch to remote viewing can work with a child quite easily. Keeping it on a 'game' footing helps to allow them to regard the 'games' as normal. Having done this many years ago, I can verify that it works very well done in this way.

imho working the red/black online might be a big bite for some people. It is an extremely efficient way of learning touch-sensing when you use an ordinary deck but remove all the Court cards. (they include yellow too) When in my learning phase in the early 60's I kept a deck on the bedside table and made myself 'do' ten every night. The experiment you are proposing here is similar to one of Rhine's where the shuffled symbol deck he used (confusing as 2 of the figures are composed of right angles) was to be predicted, as it would appear in order. I think some experiment involving red/black might work on the Stargate List, but I think the one you have had in mind is probably a bit advanced for most. Why not just start with 5 of them, and go from there? Bevy J stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

owing me a letter is not a big problem. Sometimes I am offline for days myself. By the Way, it is not 'vibrations' that affect what we use, wear, hold, it is the energies of our atomic structure. you'll find out a lot of that when you get your Course. :) Everything is energy, Einstein said that and he was right. And energies do 'throw off ' or radiate and affect other types of energy, and these throwoffs are what affect and interpentrate the supposed 'solids' around us, rocks, soil, etc.' and our own non-solid bodies throw off the same, which is captured 'inflight' so to speak, in these things we use, wear and hold. This is why your ring can provide solid information about you to a touch sensitive. Or a rock can provide information about seismic events in its former position in space and time. Or as in one of our current experiments, a dinosaur bone can hold the exact appearance, habits and living routines of its former owner...to be relayed to a remote viewing experimenter and/or touch sensitive. If you want to Post any of this on Stargate, feel free. Glad you ordered the Course. It's basic stuff. Have fun with it and let it take you wherever you want to go with this. After you learn what it teaches, just go on....and on...for this journey has no ending, there is always something else to study and learn. I've been on this journey for 36 years and no end in sight.... lol. ;) Bevy J stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]
