>DO NOT GO BACK to the site when you return.... I did NOT understand the comment about not going back to site. I thought Gene might have been saying something about the Stargate site or something else. I NOW know that he meant for us to NOT re-access the target after the initial contact within the session. (In my case with original ideogram). I have been taught to do a lot of moves when stymied and that includes time moves that RE-ACCESS the target. I had also been taught (Lyn & Paul) that targets would be earth based (probably in reaction to Ed and Courtney's unverifiable directions). When I had planets and galaxies in swirling motion, I concluded I was on an AOL tear, when in fact, I was target line. The rest is JUNK, as Gene points out. This was an EXCELLENT target to use to wrist slap the AOL tendency. Also the S4-S6 columns of CRV include the words Tangibles, Intangibles, etc and this is where one is SUPPOSED to gamble forth some nouns (labels, etc.). Regardless, I blew the session, no excuses. I'm glad of - 1.Gene gave the target, 2.Gene critically reviewed the session, 3.I had some contact with target line, and 4.I LEARNED something. Here is the session & review. >If enough folks come back with nice >answers, I may (MAY!!!) give you a second set of coordinates so you can go >back for a second trip... >Ghengis Gene...the Monitor from Hell... > and and course, here is your report...Now, before I begin...I demand that my students or viewers obey the rules...this is not an ego thing...it really does make a difference...therefore....I am discounting your second session...I will not analyse it or provide feedback....my instructions were to go to the target once and only once...heck, I even capitilized the statement...therefore .. your second session is totally invalid....(and in fact it is.....by the second session you had slipped into an classic AOL Dirve situation and everything you reported was controlled by that drive and bears no similarities to anything at the target...SEE THERE IS A REASON FOR ONLY GOING TO A SITE ONCE on the same set of coordinates... OK...that is the butt chewing...now lets begin... Session Content: S1 - Natural, Structure, Water clear, open, spacious, - AOL BK-Heavens, Galaxies - dark blue, violet, indigo, white, spotted, dark luminance,purple, burgundy, deep, foggy (s4?), blurry, misty, changing (S4?), motion, fluidic, gaseous, - AOL BK -gaseous planet, AOL BK-Bimini Atol, white, grey, blowing, whooshing sounds, grey blue, smooth, AOL BK -'something morphing into form/shape' , steel grey, navy grey, porous, airy, spacious, whirling, looping, repeating, undulating, swirling, spinning, AOL BK - tornado, AI BK - 'I feel dizzy' 'I feel involved', AOL BK - Violent natural event (NAG) AOL BK Castle Building Suspect (CBS), thin, permeable, gaseous, AOL BK - Debris in air, rising upward, lifting, (sketched something like a popped pimple), tan, taupe, grey, spacious, misty, (Now in S4) Tangible - 'Stuff in air' AOL BK - Mt St Helens, (S6 move to present time) Ideograms - "people", (why did you say this..."people"...nothing you have said up til now has any human elements in it whatsoever...this is really one of Lyn Buchanan's "Stray Cats"..drop it...no people here...trust me...NO PEOPLE" natural, motion, water, structure. Sensories- grey-green, smooth, pale, milky, misty, Intangibles- delicate, precious, fragile, reverence, dark blue, water, deep, dark luminance, cold blackish, bluishblack, Right about here is where the AOL drive begins...you started "naming" and "titling" objects and from then on it was a downhill spin...once you begin labeling and naming...you have to wake up the left brain to help you tie names to objects and each time you do that...the right brain becomes weaker..the session begins to deterioriate rapidly....and this one reached Mach II in no time... AOL BK - Titanic, sharp pointed, angular, murky, taupe, AOL BK - Bismarck, Tangibles- Structure (steel, big, strong, heavy, compressed) AOL BK - CBS on Sunken Ship - Took a Drive Break. Resume - At significant time of structure- cold, dark, dark greyblue, creamy, straight, flat, sheeted, walling, greygreen, thin, wispy, misty, airy, spacious, tan, green, smooth, horizontal, tall walling, rectangular, cornered, blunted, muted luminance, 'soupy' murky, S6 present time- Intangibles- Barren vacated, voided, emptied, solitude, rememberance, recollections, memory, reverence, AOL BK - Pearl Harbor - USS Arizona, S6 significant time Emotions at the site- fast paced, jerky, responsive, excited, frightened, alerted, D- tall, flat, airy, S- smokey, murky, T- Moving smoke, Emotions again- serious, certain, fatalistic, direct, important, focused, significant, Describe Motion- big, laboring, massive, hard, unstoppable, Intangibles (Purpose of Target?)- transport, cause, travel, move, 'en route', S6 to Just Before event - Emotions at the site- peaceful, reserved, cautious, apprenhensive, curious, Site Sensories/Intangibles- pale blue, pleasant, bright, white, blue, soft, peaceful, calm, placid pristine, Tangibles- Land/Water Interface, bright luminance, S6 Timeline- Event timing- apx 900-1002 AD. Duration- apx 50 yrs. S6 Clay - looks like a mushroom or bell. AOL BK Space Capsule Session Summary: The target is a manmade structure which now represents an event of the past. The structure is mushroom or bell shaped metallic object with a rounded conical top. There is an additional structure which is tall rectangular, pointed, angular, sheeted, flat and metallic. The event included a lot of swirling, smokey, murky, misty motions which filled the view field with varying degrees of hampered vision. There is water at the site. The event caused caused significant changes in shapes and forms. The event had big violent, massive, unstoppable motions. The people who experienced it were calm and peaceful prior to event, but suddenly became frightened and alerted. The event included a powerful rising and uplifting force on matter. People at present time think of site in a somber, reverant, and reflective manner. There is a barren, voided, loss feeling about the event. The purpose of the target was to transport, travel, move, and be 'en route'. The timeline places event around 950 AD with a 50 year duration. End Summary: End Session: The items I have darkened in your report are not valid..no way..not even close...they are AOLdriven and caused by your initial "need" tendency to label and name items... An onsite monitor would have caught you before this happened and backed up a bit ...everytime you "named" something, I would have made you tell me why you called it that..describe it to me...etc... Now .. that stated...there are no people at this site...never has been and never will be...For the first half of your session your were at the site...but since you did not nor could not understand what it was...you woke up your left brain and from then on...the session was not worth a tinkers damn... Near the Andromeda cluster is one of Earth's closest phenomenas known as a "Black Hole"...this one is called Cygnus 181...the target was this black hole...now go back and read the first part of your session and see where you went astray...Dave you had it .. but like lots of new viewers, if you look at something you do not recognize or understand, you feel compelled to label it so you feel comfortable with it...there is nothing comfortable about a black hole and no way you can compare it to anything else you have encountered since no one has ever been to a black hole... I told you it was a dimensional target...I have no idea why you chose to make this a time target......Anyhow...you did great for about ten minutes...good job...

>Thanx Bill for doing my analysis...in the future, I will send all of the >reports MY viewers do to you just to make sure they pass you approval... >Gene.. Gene, Please cut that out! Bill was only trying to be helpful and take part in a friendly manner. He didn't attack you in any way, and he didn't say anything bad about you. He wasn't suggesting that his analysis was perfect, that he could or is doing a better job than you, or that you couldn't do your own analysis. When I read his post, all I felt was that he was trying to offer a little support and *encouragement* to a fellow list member, to be friendly, and I suspect he only felt like contributing. It is nice to see people like Bill offering their own posts to this list, and being so supportive, and I'm sure he did it with only the very best of intentions. I find it worrying when someone can be so supportive and kind, and then you come off with this criticism of him. No wonder people feel intimidated, even frightened, by you. Gene, you might not be aware of this, and in fact I wasn't aware of it until I received several emails after my "write my if you have problems with anyone" post, but a lot of your comments *are* upsetting people and causing them to go into "lurk mode" for fear of "retailiation". People are genuinely intimidated by your posts and behaviour. I realise this is only your Celtic style, and *I* have got used to it now, but I have to think of everyone on this list, and deal with any problems that are brought to my attention. As list moderator, I find this latest news extremely disturbing. This is supposed to be *everyone*'s list. Everyone should feel comfortable and welcome here. It is supposed to be a place of meeting, friendship and learning. People should not feel intimidated into silence by someone else's attitude or style. That goes contrary to what I am trying to accomplish here. Someone even wrote to me saying they were *afraid* to post something on this list. Yes, afraid. The person only wanted to be helpful. The person wanted to post, and tell all of you reading this post, that Charles Tart would soon be on the Art Bell show. Because this person was frightened, (s)he did not post it and instead emailed this message to me because they (s)he was afraid of being flamed. My heart sunk a little when I heard that she was afraid of posting here. No one should feel excluded. Since the majority of emails referred to you directly by name, I must ask that you please try to be a little more understanding and tolerant towards other posters here. I am posting this publicly because so many people have written to me about this, and I wanted those people to know that I hear and understand their concerns, and that I do not want them to feel intimidated of contributing, even if all they want to contribute is a helpful or friendly post. If ANYONE feels intimidated or upset or otherwise does not want to contribute, I hope they feel they can trust me to write to me about this, and I'll see what I can do. I only want to make this list "safe" and comfortable for all would-be contributors. Everyone's contributions are welcome here, and everyone's unique point of view and perspective adds to our own, so we all lose if they decide to keep their own ideas and opinions to themselves. We lose an opportunity to learn. I am slowing coming to understand Gene, too, and I am sure Gene is not *meaning* to be offensive, so Gene, I have to say I can see your point of view, and that it's just the Celtic way.. to be blunt, even sarcy. But a lot of people here, whether you realise it or not, are finding that very offensive. So Gene, I must respectfully ask you to 'tone down' your posts, and bear in mind that bluntness and sarcasm can be deeply hurtful to other list members here, and to do your best to think of others and their feelings when you make a post to the list. They're human beings with feelings of their own, too. Your contributions are welcome, so I am not asking you to stop posting. Indeed, I hope you will continue to post. As I have said, all contributions are welcome and add to our own understanding and knowledge. We'd all lose out if you decided not to contribute, just as we lose out if others decide not to contribute. I'd just appreciate it if you could be a little more carefulful with the wording of your posts. Thank you. Regards, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Well then fine. Here is a black hole ~100 million times more massive than Cygnus X-1. Go ahead and code it into your targets, that way you can ride a really big implosion into oblivion. Seattle Bill Source: Space Telescope Science Institute Posted 6/22/98 Hubble Uncovers Dust Disk Around A Massive Black Hole Resembling a gigantic hubcap in space, a 3,700 light-year-diameter dust disk encircles a 300 million solar-mass black hole in the center of the elliptical galaxy NGC 7052. The disk, possibly a remnant of an ancient galaxy collision, will be swallowed up by the black hole in several billion years. Because the front end of the disk eclipses more stars than the back, it appears darker. Also, because dust absorbs blue light more effectively than red light, the disk is redder than the rest of the galaxy (this same phenomenon causes the Sun to appear red when it sets in a smoggy afternoon). This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image was taken with the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2, in visible light. Details as small as 50 light-years across can be seen. Hubble's Faint Object Spectrograph (replaced by the STIS spectrograph in 1997) was used to observe hydrogen and nitrogen emission lines from gas in the disk. Hubble measurements show that the disk rotates like an enormous carousel, 341,000 miles per hour (155 kilometers per second) at 186 light-years from the center. The rotation velocity provides a direct measure of the gravitational force acting on the gas by the black hole. Though 300 million times the mass of our Sun, the black hole is still only 0.05 per cent of the total mass of the NGC 7052 galaxy. Despite its size, the disk is 100 times less massive than the black hole. Still, it contains enough raw material to make three million sun-like stars. The bright spot in the center of the disk is the combined light of stars that have crowded around the black hole due to its strong gravitational pull. This stellar concentration matches theoretical models linking stellar density to a central black hole's mass. NGC 7052 is a strong source of radio emission and has two oppositely directed 'jets' emanating from the nucleus. (The jets are streams of energetic electrons moving in a strong magnetic field and unleashing radio energy). Because the jets in NGC 7052 are not perpendicular to the disk, it may indicate that the black hole and the dust disk in NGC 7052 do not have a common origin. One possibility is that the dust was acquired from a collision with a small neighboring galaxy, after the black hole had already formed. NGC 7052 is located in the constellation of Vulpecula, 191 million light-years from Earth. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

MaryD. >> Hi Mary and all, I think a better way to handle the situation is for Gene or who ever, to post the target coordinates,set a time limit, and sessions be sent directly to him for feed back. Then if people want to post-discuss their results, "I nailed it" or I "learned this and that for this session", have at it. Now though, I think Steve wants to create a target site-list? Another list for me to subscribe too? To keep the Stargate list as...... as.... as... what? Dry, boring, moderated, nice clean gentle discussions? (didn't we have one of those already)? ...Tepid tea..... when I like chilled shots of Sambuca, or a tall vodka cranberry. Relax Steve. You know the target discussion will bleed over to the Stargate.. whatever. I think the last target was great, the response was terrific, everyone learned something from it, newbies tried it out, spiced the list up a bit.. It was enjoyable Steve, reading everyone's sessions. FUN Steve. As to who is afraid of Gene? or afraid to post due to Genes exuberence? The Gene I know doesn't OVER react unless baited, or little 'innocent' digs are made "innocently' his direction........The man is just chuck full of life and fun...

Gene, This is blatantly false. About a year a ago I posted a simple request for information to you on the VWR list, and your response couldn't be interpreted as anything but a flame. I replied in a civil manner, hoping to clarify, and received yet another flame. Would you care for me to post the interchange for historical purposes? If you are so concerned about arrogance, I suggest you reread your own posts and practice greater insight into your own behavior. Michael R.

Hi Vikki, Actually A-S already had some interesting data from going down the shoot in the black hole and out into something(?) that could have been AOLed as a new universe. Such a model has been proposed that black holes open into new baby universes. So if she could do that, why not the Big Bang. No direct way to verify what is seen, but if something novel is seen, maybe theory will eventually prove it. Seattle Bill stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

>I really can't imagine anyone on this list being particularly averse to the >writings of Charles Tart. Besides, he wrote the preface to Bob Peterson's OBE >book, didn't he? Hi.. I'm afraid there's been a misunderstanding. The person is not frightened by Charles Tart, but frightened to post to this list! (Person) wanted to tell everyone about his appearance on Art Bell, but was frightened because (quote) "fear of flames". That person was not the only one! I am trying to make this list comfortable for everyone, and no one should feel threatened here. I asked people to get in touch with me if they had a problem with the list or anyone on it, and they did. A got quite a *few* emails, including a few that directly referred to Gene specifically by name (his was the only name people mentioned in these emails as being a problem to them.) .. Now... this is everyone's list, but somebody has to lay down the ground rules, and that someone is me, as I am the list owner and the only person who is able to use the administrative features of the list. I draw the line where people get hurt, or where the list's attention is being diverted for long periods of time from it's primary focus topic; serious discussion and debate about serious rv/psi. To that end, insults and flames are not permitted. Who determines if a post is an insult or flame (it is, afterall, a *subjective* thing)? Well, in practice it usually works like this: someone writes to me and says they were offended by X in post Y. I read the post they're referring to, and if I can sympathise with their complaint, and it is not hard to see the post they are referring to as an insult, then I uphold it and take some kind of action. The action I took this time, was simply to point out: (1) I'd received complaints about Gene and in general, (2) I asked Gene to tone down, and made a post saying I had read and understood the complaints. That's all - so far, anyway. I hope no further action will be necessary. It is easy to tone down an email, afterall. --List Rules for the Star Gate list (preliminary):-- By being a member of this list, and/or contributing, you are agreeing to be bound by these ground rules. If, for some reason, a person feels they *cannot* abide by these basic ground rules, I suggest that they unsubscribe. If they demonstrate they are unable to follow these rules, the list moderator may unsubscribe them himself, although will usually do this as a "last resort" option. I provide this list as a public service, free of charge, to the psi/remote-viewing community, without any condition other than the list rules below. It is within my rights, as list owner, to moderate this list in any way I feel is appropriate, and it is also within my rights, just to emphasise that this *is* a service I'm providing, at my own expense and for *free*, to close or suspend this list, with -OR- without reason, at -any- time. It is within my rights to interpret these rules and to carry them out in any way I feel is right/appropriate/necessary. If people have a problem with the rules or the way I enforce them, they should unsubscribe, but I would hope they would try to resolve the matter by e-mail first, as there could be a misunderstanding. To emphasise the basic rules: BASIC LIST RULES 1. No offensive posts are permitted (subjective; recognised as offensive if complaint is received, and complainant and myself subjectively both feel it is/ probably is offensive.) 2. The list is designed for rv/psi discussion only. The list moderator will decide if a list topic is productive or counter-productive to this goal, but will usually be fairly liberal in his interpretations of what constitutes an "on-topic" post. However, the list moderator reserves the right to be as liberal or conservative in his judgements as he deems necessary, with or without explanation being given. But especially no "spam", or "unsolicited commercial email" (UCE.) 3. List moderator reserve the right to restrict, suspend or cancel a subscriber's access at any time, with or without reason. The list moderator's decision is final and the moderator reserves the right not to enter into any discussion on the matter once a decision has been made. 4. I reserve the right to suspend or close this list at any time, with or without explanation. (This includes temporary down-time.) 5. (new) New targets and the discussion of them should be made on the new Target Discussion List. This is allow people the choice as to whether they wish to receive session summaries, analysis, etc. or just the general psi/rv discussion of the Star Gate list. 6. The moderator reserves the right, probably in extreme circumstances, to change list mode at any time so that list posts are pre-screened, i.e. moderated. (Envisaged need: if a large flame-war starts, and several people are involved, and there is sudden and urgent need to block several posts, e.g. the flames of a large flame-war.) This would only be a temporary status. 6. I reserve the right to review, add or modify rules at any time and to enforce them in any way I feel is right/appropriate. --End of List Rules-- I hope people see these rules as being fair, and common-sensical. It is not my desire to limit discussion, or to play big brother, and I will try to be as liberal, in favour of a poster, in interpreting these rules as I can. But I think the rules above should give people a good idea of the rules I operate under on this list, and lay the boundaries of what what I am prepared to allow on this list. SUMMARY - don't flame anyone - don't take this list for granted (I did not set up this list only to be given a guilt-trip should the need come for me to close it again) - try to keep on-topic (rv/psi) - especially, no spam or UCE. - please try to keep target discussion on the Target Discussion list and thus keep the Star Gate list free for other rv/psi topics. - these rules might change at any time CONCLUSION By subscribing or posting to the list, you are agreeing to these rules. If you do not agree, please unsubscribe now. These rules are designed for your own protection! (To protect you from flames or insults, to protect you from spam/UCE, to protect you from receiving dozens of off-topic posts that may not interest you, etc.) As a list member, you enjoy the benefits of the protection of these rules. If someone flames you, you can be assured that if you write to me, and I agree with you that it is a flame, and you wish it action to be taken, then action will be taken against the offender. You do not then need to worry about your posts being responded to with flames. The list rules are designed to protect the members of this list, so that they can feel safe and comfortable in posting and participating in this list. I want this to be a comfortable place, where people can feel secure and safe in posting their comments and ideas. Private replies to this post are welcome.

Dear Steve, It was said somewhere that the whole US effort concerning RVing raised from the discovery of a Russian threat in the 60s. May I ask if - you or somebody else on your list knows about that threat ? - Was it a threat coming from a Russian RV use ? - Does there exist an evaluation on this threat ? - Was it real or just disinformation ? - Is this still active in some way in the post USSR countries or somewhere else ? - Do you know docs or books about that threat, aside the classics (like "Psychic discoveries behind the Inron Curtain", by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder, 1970 and abridged 1997) ?

Hi Jean-Luc, Thanks for the questions! I know a little about the historical aspect of all this. Part of the reason for the US intelligence community's interest in starting an RV project, which began with projects like Scanate in the 70s at SRI, was apparently the strong Russian interest in parapsychology, and to paraphrase "if they have, and it works, and we don't have it, then we are in big trouble", or "if they have it, we have to have it too." The CIA knew from the beginning that this sort of project would be extremely controversial and wouldn't fit into the traditional intelligence business. Yet, they knew they had to give it at least a try, so they persisted, and.. well, the rest you know! But, yes, Russian interest in the subject did seem to kick off the US's interest in parapsychology. That, plus according to stories, the impressive survival "gut instincts" of certain military officers who seemed to always be in the right place at the right time, and never the wrong place at the wrong time.. If you don't mind technical reading, then I suggest you check out my own website, the Star Gate Documents Archive. Go to the "Electronic Reading Room" section and select the "Final Report (NBIT)". It is a scientific paper (about 150 pages), obtained by FOIA, which reviews Russian interest and scientific research into parapsychology, and highlights some of the differences between the US and Russian scientific approaches and opinions on the subject. It might contain information that's useful. The Star Gate Website is a collection of documents obtained by your US Freedom of Information Act, which I have scanned and put online for free. There may be more mentions of Russian interest, but the NBIT document is the only one that focuses solely on it. It's technical, but you may find it interesting! >- Do you know docs or books about that threat, aside the classics (like "Psychic >discoveries behind the Inron Curtain", by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder, >1970 and abridged 1997) ? I'm afraid I can't recommend any books.. sorry! If I find out about any, I'll let you know. Let me know if you check out the Star Gate website though, you might find something there that interests you (such as the NBIT document), although these FOIA documents are a little on the technical side. Oh, the address? It's up at: http://www.progressiveweb.net/stargate/ The Star Gate Documents Website I hope this information is helpful! Good luck in your research! Sorry I couldn't recommend any books - perhaps other list contributors can help? Anyone out there know any good books on the Russian interest in all this..?

Hi List, After Jean-Luc's post, I thought I would type up some excerpts from the Final Report (NBIT) I mentioned in my reply. The document focuses on the differences in approach between US-Western research into, as we call it here, parapsychology.. and the Eastern/Russian research, into "psychoenergics" (as they called it over there.) From page 5-6: OVERVIEW The great bulk of the papers reviewed during this study were found to be speculative, unscientific, and sensationalistic, much like the parapsychological literature in the West. There is one big difference, however, between this type of literature in the U.S.S.R and the U.S. The Soviet literature almost invariably shows interest in the physical and physiological mechanisms. An example is the interest in psychoenergetics, bioplasma, and psychotronics. The term psychotronics was coined by a French jounralist after the analogy with electronics, bionics, nucleonics, and others. The Czechs have adopted the term to replace parapsychology. The Russians have devised their own term-psychoenergetics. These new names were chosen to given the field of study an air of scientific and technological respectability. A fundamental question remains: does the name imply a basic difference in the approach and, if so, what effects can be expected from it? Judging from the available literature, the name does imply a difference in the approach of the Russian and Czech Investigators from that of most Western parapsychologists. Some of the differences are outlined below. (1) The Russians do not undertake studies like those of J.B. Rhine, in which remote card reading or other simple telepathic tasks are carried out repeatedly to gather statistical evidence. The Russians assume the reality of thought transference. Their best experiments are designed to elucidate the physical basis of these novel biophysical ifnormation transfer (NBIT) mechanisms. (2) Many of the Russian researchers that public in open literature in this field pursue their studies on their own time and at their own personal expense. They lack the resources to carry out well designed or long statistical studies. (3) Many Westerners remain convinced that parapsychology will never be explained in terms of physics. They cling to an undertone of a religious-like belief in trascendent mechanisms. The Russians, in contrast, reject such an approach; being doctrinaire materalists, everything has a physical, scientific explanation. Again, this line of reasoning reinforces the trend toward eliciting the physical mechanisms of NBIT. (4) The Soviets would not hesitate to use secrecy or deception to try to gain a small military or political advantage. This desire to gain a small advantage would undoubtedly lead them to try to develop NBIT means of communication if they assumed that it was technically feasible. Such attempts would obviously be cloaked in secrecy and camouflaged by false information. In reviewing Soviet and Western work on NBIT phenomena, it seems reasonable that serious interdisciplinary research and development is being carried on. Furthermore, there seems to be veridical indication that the Soveits have organized laboratories for just such programs. On the other hand, it is obvious that many Russian workers in this field pursue their research as extracurricular activity, with little or no funding. Thus, there are hints of secret work as well as indication that parapsychological research may be in disfavor. It may be that high quality, systematic reseach is officially approved, well funded, and well organized, whereas research in this field from "nonofficial" laboratories may be allowed to founder without funds, thus providing a smoke screen of poor quality work. If the Soviets did indeed establish laboratories for a systematic approach to this problem, in our opinion they are currently capable of making good progress. The literature surveyed varies widely in degree of sophistication. Most experimental papers given rather vague descriptions and insufficient data to assess the accuracy and importance of claimed results. Upon completion of the review, we found the bulk of what was considered to be creditable work centers around the activities of three principal individuals-Kogan, Adamenko, and Sergeyev. Of the theoretical papers, those by Kogan are undoubtedly the best and reflect the good thinking of an experienced physicist. Using physically acceptable arguments, Kogan demonstrates the possibility that ELF and VLF carrier waves might be part of NBIT mechanisms, and initiates an information theory approach to the study of NBIT. His ideas are much like those of Persinger and strike a resonant chord for all members of the team. The papers by Adamenko, on the other hand, are spotty with respect to knowledge of modern physics and physiology. He utilizes a number of poorly defined and unquantifiable concepts such as "bioplasma," "psi energy," etc. Nevertheless, significant contributions are made by him-particularly his study and explanation of telekinesis in terms of electrostatics. The papers by Sergeyev shows the effectiveness of a radar signature expert turned to analyzing electrophysiological events. He shows some interest- ing new possibilities, taking into account that the noise in the signals not only contain statistical random variations, but that the carriers also may have non-stationary drifts. His work also seems to suffer from the lack of an interdisciplinary approach. Furthermore, he is probably responsible for the development of at least one and perhaps two remote physiological sensors. CONCLUSIONS From the review of essentially open Soviet literature, the following conclusions are made: (1) The Soviets have done significant work on signal extraction, statistical, and information theory approaches to novel biophysical information transfer mechanisms. (2) The Soviets have done creditable work on the electrostatics of telekinesis and have probably now turned their attention to the psychophysiological aspects of the phenomenon. (3) The Soviets have an interest in remote physiological monitors, have developed one or two new instruments, and are probably involved in R&D in this area. (4) The Soviets had and probably still have an interest in the physics of NBIT transmission mechanisms and are probably doing research in this area. (5) There is a developing interest in the Soviet Bloc to apply psycho- physiological training methods (similar to biofeedback) to develop control over NBIT mechanisms. (6) All the Soviet research that has been reviewed suffers from the lack of an interdisciplinary approach. (7) The Soviets are investigating the psychopsysiology of multimodal, programmed stimulation as a method to entrain physiological rhythms and produce changes in states of consciousness. (8) A systematic, interdisciplinary approach to NBIT by the Soveits would require only a modest commitment of resources. A small number of key personnel with an adequate supporting staff of engineers and technicians could make substantial headway in this area. At this stage, in our opinion no unique technological breakthrough is required-only careful investigation. In addition, no unique features such as physical plant, facilities, services, or equipment would specifically identify an NBIT R&D laboratory from other types of laboratories. These conclusions are drawn in spite of the fact that most of the published material we have reviewed is confusing, inaccurate, and of little value from a scientific point of view. In this respect, the review team may have erred in the directon of trying to make too much sense from a small data base. The following sections of the report provide a critical review of Soviet research, by topic, in support of these conclusions. -- The rest of the report is up at: http://www.progressiveweb.net/stargate/ Goto "Electronic Reading Room", then "Final Report (NBIT)", if you'd like to read on! Jean-Luc, I hope this information is helpful. I know it's probably not exactly what you were after, but since you brought up the topic of Russian research, I thought I would post this. Hopefully it's helpful! Best regards, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

<< anything intresting that you got from RV the Big Bang or the time before it? Eyal >> .... Hi Eyal :-) No, I don't have much interest in how our current physical universe was created. This physical universe we are currently using as our main viewpoint, is just another learning experience. All of our thoughts-actions simply just keep adding more beliefs for us to believe in, there by making it seem larger and larger (another belief :-), but then again, was this why it was created? hahahah ;-) We are artists in living.... we are great!

What I do like to do is 'feel', and by feeling energy I have found I also can 'know'. I dont need science to prove 'it' to me I just simply 'know it' and that's all just fine with me. I have great affinity with the blackhole, the energy, the sensual feel of it, curious, virgin, wee infinitesimal particles all about me, safe, secure, trusting, fresh exploring new life, beautifullllll, we, the black hole and I, exchange I guess beliefs, what ever the phenomena, Eyal, I love it...... kind regards ~Terri~ stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

I am breaking my self imposed lurk for a few chosen words. Those of you who feel frightened or intimidated by my presence...now is the time to delete me and go crawl under a blanket until the big bad man goes away. Steve has told several of my colleagues that he had 4 or five complaints against me from people who were "FRIGHTENED" (his capitalization..not mine), intimidates and "FEARFUL" of me and my comments. Well lets put a face to you fears. I have included my picture...See no horns...but of course any good satan knows how to conceal them. For all of those 4 or 5 people (whoever you might be), who feel you cannot speak up in my presence...well let me note that since Steve decided to publicly pillory me, over a dozen of the folks who are serious learners, people who still do not grasp the fullness of the magic, the people who should most benefit from this site, have taken up my offer to contact me directly...No fear in their posts. No intimidation. No frightened quivering cowards among them. Just honest REAL people who want to know about RV in terms we can all understand. I have taken the time to answer each one of them...(so much for not being sensitive heh Steve...). I take very personal any comments concerning the worth of the "old way" we did RV...it worked wonders and it still does. I take great umbrage at anyone who attacks the magic. It is is magic and it will continue to be magic no matter how many PHd's try to prove it otherwise. I have been teaching RV to individual students for about three years now...(so much for me not caring heh Steve...)...and I do not charge a penny. I owe this to RV and it is my dues for the magic is has brought me...(so much for my lack of feeling heh Steve...). My students always wind up being my friends and my advisors...I listen to them and learn from them..(so much for my arrogance heh Steve...)....One of my students is beginning to teach now herself...and I could not be more proud and more helpful to her...but then the folks who contact me directly know just how helpful I really am. As to my liitle experiment with coordinates on the net...ah yes....somehow that must have really upset the sensibilities of the folks who I have scared to death since I got over a dozen responses...and answered each one personally with a private repeat PRIVATE analysis of their session. I did not post their results unless they chose to do so themselves or gave me permission to do so...(so much for intimidating them heh Steve...)....Of course the PHd began to attack the results and I let them without saying a word until one of them chose to stick his PHd into business that it did not belone...and all hell broke loose because I had actually attacked one of the intelligentsia on the website that seem to have the inside track on truth and experience as opposed to we poor plebians out here who just believe in the magic and do it for the pleasure of the magic. The result of my challenging the ethics of one of the intelligentsia was the attempt at my public humiliation...unfortunately it did not accomplish its purpose...I am not humiliated...it takes more than intelligentsia and Saxons to humiliate me...far more...Instead...I have chosen to allow the rest of you to now sleep in peace for the ogre .. the demon of the net...has gone silent for a while...I will let everyone post their conclusions of why we began RV in the military in response to the Russian program no matter how far off you really are...I will even let people talk about my Mentor, Instructor and Friend, Skip Atwater as the person who identififed the big bad Russian threat even if he wasn't...it's OK...lots of people seem to prefer pat answers to the truth so you can all come out from underneath the covers now...read the answers that call themselves truth and know that the gremlin of the airwaves has gone into quiet hiding...and will spend his time helping those who are not quite so frightended of the dark...

Hi Glen and all, Liam here. I thought I would jump in here real quick with my Irish charm before Gene, who is just a dumb Mick from the wrong side of Belfast, responds. >> >Not to take anything from what Mr. Atwater, but the awareness of America of >the Russian Psi-Research came about in the normal way. Actually, that is partially correct. In approximately 1978, Skip was given the mission of organizing a project to see if there was a Soviet threat, and if there was a threat, to come up with ways to counter that threat.. The project quickly evolved from a counterintelligence project into a collection project. But in the early days Skip was very involved in researching the threat. Obviously by 1980 or so, Skip was involved full time in the Ft Meade project, and was probably not very concerned with the former counterintelligence project. However, Skip is man with incredible intelligence and energy. He is knowledgeable across the RV field as well as many other areas. I am sure he kept up on what was going on in other countries, although he may not have had access to all the message traffic. Seeing I do not know what has been declassified, let me say this. There was, and still may be, an agency tasked with monitoring the development of RV/PSI in other countries. Enough said. It was the kiss of >death to the program with its' move to DIA which was an Agency with no >charter to actually collect intelligence. It is in fact a consolidation and >clearing house for intelligence product from agencies empowered to collect. >Why would they do that if someone didn't want it all to go away. > >Aloha ... Glenn Glen, I was the person who moved the Project to DIA. Although you have identified the GENERAL mission of DIA, you are mistaken about the charter. Once again, enough said. Given LT Gen Odom's hostility to the project, DIA was the best choice possible. Another option was NSA. If we had gone that way, we would have been doing one hundred percent COMSEC (Communications Security) Boring. Boring. The project would have died within a year, as the viewers lost interest in what they were doing. And of course General Odom moved from the Army Chief of Staff for Intelligence over to the Director of NSA That made me look like a genius. I do not want to sound to egotistical so let me add. I did have advice from Skip, Gene, Paul Smith, Lyn, and Ed Dames. They also thought DIA was the best option available. Based on their advice and my Irish intelligence and survival skills, I picked DIA. BTW, We were able to work operationally at DIA. Not trying to start an argument Glen, we could not discuss it over the internet any way. Hope this clears things up. slainte May the force be with you. Liam stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

<< I believe that the person who identified and evaluated the psi information gap between Russia and America was Skip Atwater, Jean-Luc. You may want to contact him for further information and if there is any declassified information on this topic. Kind regards Angela Thompson Smith The Inner Vision Research Institute >> ....... really feel I'm getting in too deep here, don't really care much BUT.. Skip Atwater was one of the original people called upon to work the DoD RV program after the CIA decided to pass it to DoD. Skip, a military officer, took the data provided by the CIA program and applied it to military research. While he certainly spent a great deal of time studying the affects of Soviet RV programs...he did not discover them... he only worked against the fact the Russians were known to be experimenting with RV...he was given that info by the CIA...Also...the reason we looked into the Russian RV program was to determine if they were good at PK..good enough to change missile settings in flight.When we figured out that no one could do that and that PK was very local...matter of feet not miles...then we continued our research in using RV for viewing their targets. They existed for almost ten years, according to Wheatons version of history...during that whole time they were operating illegally...nothing could be further from the truth. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Dear List: I just received this email from Gene. Gene has just been suspended from the Star Gate list, and I was thinking how to break the news when I received an email from Gene, forwarded to a dozen people. Clearly he wants this to be brought out into the open, so I am addressing this openly. Below is my reply to his post. Those who disagree with my decision and feel my rules are unfair should unsubscribe peacefully, while those who agree by them are welcome to enjoy the protection of a moderator who will be happy to defend you from personal attacks and insults and be prepared to take action against trouble-makers. >I am no longer permitted to post on the Stargate...I take it this means you >have kicked me from the net...pity Steve...you really should reconsider...I >will make it very well known to your other members that you have done this and >why....This is not an adult reaction on your part..I really expected more from >you.... Gene, You can threaten me all you like with further action, but I will not change my mind. Yes, you are indeed suspended from the list. I was planning to send you a mail later today or earlier tommorrow listing my reasons, but anyway.. I don' have time to think how to put it now, I just have to do it.. I have taken this action it because you insulted, upset and frightening several innocent members. Several people were scared of posting. And when I inform you of this, your response is to belittle these people's feelings by calling them "cowards" (your word) in your recent post. I expected more you of YOU, Gene, but then I guess that means we are a disappointment to each other. Don't expect me to lose any sleep on it. You promised me that you would "be good" when you re-joined the list after the troubles of last time. Well, I trusted you, Gene. But you lied to me. By your own admission, you attacked someone on the list. I later found out several people had been insulted and upset by your comments. You were nasty and insensitive to several people. That is a bannable offense and I have no hestitation in exercising my rights as list moderator in removing you from the list. I am making this post publicly as you have indicated you wanted this public by forwarding it to a dozen or so people. For your insensitive, and argumentative behaviour that has hurt so many of my list members, who I have promised to protect from that type of behaviour, I have decided to remove you from the list. You insulted others, you attacked others, you insulted me and you showed zero respect for the rules of the list (which you previously had agreed to respect as part of your return to the list). You are suspended from the list, yes! I am sorry this was necessary, but you left me no choice. If you cannot follow the rules of the list, you must leave, either voluntary or by force. I decided to remove you. I'd had enough. Moderating a list where you were a member was always difficult, and you always seem to cause trouble. It was within my rights to remove you, and I have exercised my rights to do so. No explanation was necessary but I gave you one anyway. Don't expect any sympathy from me or for me to be frightened or intimidated by your post. Your days of intimidating others on the Star Gate list is over, Gene.

Must be the full Moon:) What a pickle. Genghis Gene, has a way of both endearing and irritating many, sometimes both at once LOL that is part of his charm :) and quite apart from his impressive knowledge, which will be sorely missed here. Steve, has taken on a huge endeavor providing this service, and in doing so feels responsible to his subscribers. In the end, all we can do is what we feel is right. Given Steve's explanation I see his point and respect his position as moderator to protect the subscribers who were afraid to post. This is a very tuff call, Im sure none of us would like to have to make. After presenting the situation and asking for Gene's support Steve got a response, not unlike the problem he described. Be honest, not many would let that go. "Can't we all just get along...." Rodney where are you when we need you.. Im sure most of us would like to find a way to work things out, but if someone does not monitor the playground sometimes the big kids play to rough and the smaller kids don't get to play at all. With a little restraint everyone can play, and learn. Maybe after a cooling off period, if he would like to, Gene could come back, Im sure Steve will still have his rules in place, after all it is his playground.

>I just received this email from Gene. Gene has just been suspended >from the Star Gate list... Steve, I want to thank you and offer you my support for this decision. I was neither intidimidated or afraid of Gene, nor did I mind his insults. I did not complain about him. What I did feel was that he lowered the quality of the interactions on the list. Because of him, the signal to noise ratio was always poor ( too much noise, too little signal). I finally set a filter in my email program to send all his messages to the trash. Unfortunately, I am sure some list members did not know how to do that or did not have that capability in their software. New members, of course, do not do that sort of thing. I'm sure that many newcomres got a very bad impression of the list before they learned how to deal with him. You certainly gave him more chances than I would have had I been in your shoes. Unlike tradtional remote viewers, I *do* predict the future daily as a psychologist. The principle I use is simple: The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. A person with Gene's particular type of personality disorder is not going to change. He made that abundantly clear. Your decision will surely improve the quality of the Stargate list. Thanks again.

Hi Yaana! And hello list.. :) >Genghis Gene, has a way of both endearing and irritating many, sometimes both >at once LOL that is part of his charm :) and quite apart from his impressive >knowledge, which will be sorely missed here. I have to agree with you completely here, Yaana! Despite Gene's ever-controversial and often trouble-causing personality, his experience and insights will be missed. I can only hope that with his departure, some of those people who were worried of posting will step forward, and others will feel safer in contributing, and between them, they'll be able to make up for some of what has been lost. >Steve, has taken on a huge endeavor providing this service, and in doing so >feels responsible to his subscribers. In the end, all we can do is what we >feel is right. Given Steve's explanation I see his point and respect his >position as moderator to protect the subscribers who were afraid to post. Thank you, Yaana. It is comforting to know that someone else is able to see things from my perspective on this matter. Being a list moderator is not an easy job, and my respect for other list moderators has grown enormously through the experience of being one for the Star Gate list. Difficult decisions are a regular part of the job. Often, whatever decision a list moderator makes is going to be unpopular with a certain portion of the list they are moderating. It is easy to delay or postpone making these difficult decisions, in the hope the problem will just go away, but this often results in no action being taken, where infact it should. After recent events, my doubt on what to do has slowly dwindled, in favour of suspending Gene's access. While it is not possible to list all my reasons, logic, emotions, or thinking behind this decision, in general, I made the decision I did because my suspicions that Gene might be offending people, was confirmed after receiving some 5 emails from people who have been frightened off of posting and had felt intimidated or hurt. It is impossible for me to say whether this was intentional on Gene's part or not, but the end result was still the same. However, the lack of any apology for the offense he caused, after it was brought to his and our attention, coupled with his post which criticised myself and the list rules, and repeating insults to those same people he had originally insulted, by branding them "cowards", was the confirmation I needed that action was necessary. After taking the suspension action, and preparing to write an email to Gene, Gene decided to write to me, warning me that if I didn't recant and allow him back, he would basically "expose" my action against him. This did not deter me or frighten me, as I had already justified the action in my mind, and felt it was the only proper cause of action to take. At least five people were counting on me to do something, and it had become a case of either Gene being above the list rules, or not. Always wanting to treat people on equal terms, I decided Gene was not above the rules of the list. And, despite his informational value to the list, this could not justify his actions and words against fellow list members. Gene's post merely reinforced my belief that Gene has the potential to come across as threatening to other members of the list. I felt put into the shoes of those people who had emailed me their concerns by his email to me, and knew how they had felt when they said they'd felt threatened or intimidated by him. >This is a very tuff call, Im sure none of us would like to have to make. After >presenting the situation and asking for Gene's support Steve got a response, >not unlike the problem he described. Be honest, not many would let that go. Yaana, you are right, it was a difficult decision for me, a "very tuff call". I did not take this decision lightly, but after a very long period of time, culminating with his lastest post. But it is not the first time I have wondered if action against Gene was necessary. For many times in the past, I have wondered "is this a flame?" after reading one of Gene's posts, each time letting Gene have the benefit of the doubt. Steadily, his posts started to seem more like flames than brashness, but I still remained liberal in my interpretation and let it go. Since I had received no complaints, I figured that no one was upset, and therefore no action was necessary. Eventually I made a post, asking if anyone had a problem with the list or a subscriber, to get in touch. Before I knew it, five emails came in about the tense atmosphere they felt the list had, many referring to Gene by name, and some stating they they were upset or hurt by Gene. One person, who I hope has been watching my own reactions to all this, and is reading this now, even said that they were frightened of posting because of the fear of being flamed. Well, after hearing this, I felt that action was needed. I decided to raise the issue in public, since it was evidently a bigger problem then I first thought. When this proved fruitless, and only seemed to solidify the problem, I decided to suspend Gene. It was not a single post that lead to Gene's suspension, but a series over a long period of time, and about 5 personal emails to me from people who had felt hurt or intimidated by Gene, plus Gene's reactions to hearing about all this. All were pointing in the direction of suspending Gene's access. >"Can't we all just get along...." Rodney where are you when we need you.. >Im sure most of us would like to find a way to work things out, but if someone >does not monitor the playground sometimes the big kids play to rough and the >smaller kids don't get to play at all. With a little restraint everyone can >play, and learn. That's a philosophy I share with you, Yaana! This playground of ours should be big enough for all of us. The big kids should leave the little kids alone, but if they do not, someone should come out and restrain the big kids in order to protect the smaller ones. Hopefully the big kids will realise that bullying gets them nowhere, and they are better off playing on friendly terms. I'm sure Rodney would have some things to say about those big kids and little kids.. >Maybe after a cooling off period, if he would like to, Gene could come back, >Im sure Steve will still have his rules in place, after all it is his >playground. And it's a playground that I hope everyone will be able to enjoy, knowing we have a special 'anti-bullying' policy here :) It's a safe zone, and nobody should feel afraid of coming forward to play.. or contribute a post! (I hope those 5 or so people are reading this! :) If Gene were to apologise in full to those he upset or frightened, and to agree to be bound by the list rules as everyone else is, it is still possible that Gene can return. But unless that happens, I feel Gene's return to the list is unlikely. But that can change.. the future is a very long time.. Thanks for your support, Yaana. Trust me, it was a difficult decision. I feel it was the right one, but realise there may be those who disagree. But, at the end of the day, this is a playground with rules, and I have to set some. It takes someone to interpret those rules, and that person is me, too. I felt that there was only one option in dealing with Gene, and it's not one I enjoyed taking, but I feel it is one that had to be taken. I just hope that most, if not all, people on this list can understand and respect my decision, even if they may disagree with it. I am simply trying to make this list a comfortable place for everyone. Thanks again, Yaana. Take care, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

>They existed for almost ten years, according to Wheatons version of >history...during that whole time they were operating illegally...nothing could >be further from the truth. > Hmmm lets get a couple of things straight here. "Wheaton's version of history?" We all have our own versions of history. It's when we get together and exchange information that we get closer to the truth. After 22 years in Intel (not the computer chip people) I have a very full and sometimes colorful idea of history. It doesn't mean that all the beliefs I hold are the truth. I only have my piece of the puzzle not yours or anyone else's. I am constantly adjusting my knowledge base. After 2 decades in Intel I know many things others do not, I have been involved in many projects others will never know about. The same stands with others, they worked in areas and conducted intelligence work that I was not privy too nor should be. It is the nature of the business. Disdain in ones reference to another is ill appreciated especially when we don't know each other. The free exchange of ideas, concepts, history and friendship will evolve the history we all share.

I hope you will not keep us all in suspense. RV and seems to be firmly tied together with ETs/UFOs and often Mars. PJ refused to let the subject pop up to any extent on her e-mail list. Perhaps she had a good reason. Ed Dames gets a lot of flack about his RV data on Mars and Martians.....so does Courtney Brown and its only fair to say that I put a lot of salt on the subject myself but I enjoy the stories. Actually, its a little closer to home than the black holes out there. Also, with our Mars orbiter out there, it may be possible to verify some of the claims. I suspect it will be harder to verify that there IS NOT any life or artifacts. I believe Ingo Swann did a "project" on one of the planets and obtained data years before our space probes found and verified it. (Don't have the hard copy handy.) Angela Thompson also reportedly did several psi sessions on ETs both on and off earth. Most recent, to my knowledge is Prudence Calabrese who claims to have regular visits from a "grey". I wonder if anyone has targeted that subject. Rich stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

(snip) >Why are Gene, Liam, Skip to be trusted (in an rv sense of course. ) Skip is totally dedicated to the purest monitoring possible and to the mission, to the exclusion of any personal bent, desires, fears, etc. (The term STRAY CAT means "Subliminal Transfer of Recollections, Anxieties and Yearnings to Consciously Accessible Thought". That is, when a person goes into a session, they carry with them their memories, fears, and desires. When some perception comes through, they tend attach one of these to the perception, in order to make some sense of it. In so doing, they develop a STRAY CAT (AOL). Monitors have the double duty of not only noticing the AOLs of the viewer and helping them avoid the resulting traps, but also having to deal with "monitor's AOL" or "monitor's CATs". It is Skip's total dedication to the mission that causes him to seek only the purest information possible. He has an uncanny talent for controlling not only his viewer's AOLs, but also his own. Liam is one of those people who, to put it in the terms of the sergeant who "welcomed" us into Basic training all those many centuries ago, "If you ain't someone I can trust with my life, my wife, and my wallet, I don't want ya here!!!" Liam is one of those people. When I lay down on the ERV cot or the dental chair, and Liam was in the room as a monitor, I knew I could trust him with my innermost self. I never worried about the session, and just turned it all over to him. It was the same way in the CRV room. I knew that he was both professional and caring, and wouldn't do anything to hurt either me or the session I was doing, or the information I was trying to get. You'd have to know him to see what I mean. Gene, as you have read over the past weeks, may have come to us as a take-charge kind of interrogator, but he is the kind of person who wants nothing more than to do a job right. Right after that initial session I had with him, I asked Skip to not assign me to any more sessions with him as monitor, but in time, I came to see, both in the database and from the talk among the other viewers, that his drive to do things correctly overcame his old interrogator habits, and in the end, he became one of the monitors I would always trust. This carried over into the CRV session, as well. Gene mentioned that another person was in charge of monitoring for CRV. It was mainly because of my distrust for that other person's (very horrible and unprofessional) monitoring skills that I started asking for Gene's assistance in the CRV session. Someone off the street would have looked good beside that other guy, but in the CRV sessions, just as in the ERV sessions, Gene's drive to do things correctly and professionally was the key factor which made him someone whose skills I would rank up there with the other two in terms of total trust. >Why is the issue of trust so important? As both Gene and Liam have said, when you go into a session, you can come out in a somewhat less-than-alert state, and may need someone who will help keep you from walking into walls. But even far above that, there is the in-session trust. That is what I am talking about when I say that I trust them. The viewer is there to find the truth (hopefully). If you can't trust your monitor to come into the session without his/her own preconceived notions and beliefs and be totally willing to have those personal life-long belief systems shattered by something the viewer finds, then that monitor is not there totally dedicated to finding the truth. You're best to work without that monitor. For example, if someone monitors for you and is the type of person who makes everything into an ET target, a government conspiracy, a spiritual entity, an altered or parallel dimension, or whatever other axe they have to grind, and can't set it aside for the session, then they will interpret everything you say in the light of their own biases. Their questioning, interpretation, even what things they copy down as you say them will be filtered through their "recollections, anxieties, and yearnings". You, as a viewer shouldn't have to deal with that. If you can't trust your monitor, don't use them. >With what do you entrust them? First, you entrust your self to them, since you will be in a semi-altered state and pretty defenseless. Most people wouldn't have someone monitor for them, though, if they didn't already at least trust the person's basic integrity along these lines. More important, you are entrusting your perceptions to them. Like I say in the above paragraph, if they aren't willing to set aside all their preconceived notions, biases, and have their entire life's moorings shattered by what can be found in any session, then they aren't there for the truth. What you get should be what they report, even if it threatens their entire beings. Anything more or less means you can't completely trust them. >Why would you not trust others? As ERV monitors, simply because of the lack of training. If I were to see that someone new were a good monitor, then I would use them. Wanting to monitor and being a good monitor are two different things, though. Wanting to be your best and being your best are separated by a wide chasm known as "training and experience". As CRV monitors, I do trust a lot of other people. In my Viewer training courses, I train each viewer to be a monitor, as well.

My post was about the recognition of too valuable people struggling over style and acceptance of their responsibilities, but each person will make of it what they will. I believe Gene's passion comes from his life's' experience and need to share it, and Steve's from stepping up to the plate and taking responsibility for his creation, that does not make either wrong or bad as human beings, it just highlighted a conflict in chosen style. It seems that everyone either hates or loves Gene, even after having been his target I fall in the later category, because I respect his work and know he has earned his stripes in life, but I would not personally choose his communication style, I have enough trouble with my own :) No one said we had to become Genebots to honor the man or his work I'm just another kid on the playground, hoping everyone will play nice ; ) Aloha Yaana stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Ah, I'm glad my open display of ignorance about this matter produced such an enlightening response, and I am also grateful for the speed of it (no, I'm NOT being sarcastic (you know how online stuff can easily lead to such misenterpretation..))

Interestingly enough, people seem to always maintain a "version" of the past. It would almost seem to me that the past is just as dubious as the future in that people's "viewpoints" tend to filter the "reality" of things. Glenn occasionally has illuminating things to say which I can't possibly argue with. Indeed there is a field of free exchange in sharing past events since no one person can really account for the gestalt past. We all share a past that needs to expressed and collected as a whole to get a clearer picture. It takes an insightful person to realize that past event can differ from person to person and to staunchly hold on to that "personal" past belief can be the downfall of accurate knowledge base. I am nor proclaiming that we should be "open" minded, since that in itself is what creates MORE problems. I suggest being "active minded" --- meaning analyzing information that enters our sphere of knowledge and discard what is contrary to what is harmonic. Yet, to still maintain an attitude of flexibility to discard the belief held if it doesn't work or compute any longer. A most difficult thing for human to do since we seek information to anchor our belief and belief system to operate in this world. Sometimes it is important to re-evaluate the information we get. I suggest that we recognize when an information, especially past information, is worth molding over...and if the information is of any significance in knowing since we look to see if it can be of USE in the present as well as future speculation. Any information that is of no USE is not worth getting emotionally trampled by. This brings me to a RV question...how can we determine the truism of the past when all of our history has been written from the "viewpoints" of historians? Is it healthy to discount our RV information when it doesn't necessarily match with past "historic" events as written or accounted for by its author? electrix stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Re: [stargate] The Question of Trust Really cool Lyn...with your expressed thought I can only say that just by your candid comment, I can trust your intentions. I can think of a couple, presently, that I can entrust my mental states in doing RV. I really get turned off by ego display. It is one thing to know one's subject...but it is quite another to go about "advertising" one's own prowess and hammering it in as Commandments. (And so that my statement does not get interpreted "negatively" by previous RV commentators, I am must add that this is my sole opinion. It is NOT a dig on other professional viewers that I have had the chance to meet or communicate). I believe many of us have lost the value of being humble in a culture and society that demands that we display our credentials. I would feel much more comfortable with the attitude of a buddhist priest anytime. Trust also evokes an interesting aspect in regard to RVing in the process. I have found that when engaged in learning RV, we get emphatic ways of doing or thinking *something* according to the instructor's view. Almost as if it was a command. I believe that to be under a sensitive altered state, this can be detrimental to the mental health of a person. Not that they would crazy or something, but rather embed wittingly or unwittingly "hypnotic" belief suggestions upon the viewer. I find this element similar to a psychoanalyst engage in the process of allowing the patient to uncover the truth for himself. There should be definitely cardinal rules that we should follow in regards maintaining trust in the way of, let's say, a doctor to his patient. I think it is also necessary for the viewer not to "feel" invalidated in viewing since, sometimes, the result of the process may not be so obviously objective --- but subjective enough to warrant the potential that the viewer is right regardless of whether it compliments "reality". I know this is tough since, I myself don't have an answer on how to handle this. I know, however, that in esoteric targets such as where ET's are involved, it does not meet my reality base and these events shouldn't have to be imposed on me as a "fact." I have no doubt that in the entire universe there are other forms of life. But I believe that the introduction of ET encounters and RV impressionistic "stories" to the un-initiated are polluting the reality of those of us who have not encounter with such a situation. I know that I have personal experience that should remain private and that the decision is based on whether it is helpful to a society or whether I am asked to elucidate towards purposefulness. It is for the above reasons that I would be interested in knowing if the RV community would want to create a non-profit Association or Organization that would keep the balance between what is proper behavior and establishing validation to those Remote Viewers that subscribe to "positive" Organizational tenets in using the technique as well to advance it in any practical or pro-active way. I am not sure if there is such a group...but is one I would be interested in voluntarily supporting. electrix Lyn Buchanan wrote: > Just noticed that this message came back rejected by the mailer daemon > because, it says, the address stargate@... doesn't exist.

I eventually built up the courage and sent him my results on his outbounders and he was incredibly supportive. Now, as to "Gene's drive to do things correctly and professionally" reminds me of when I was 19 and we were learning the pub trade, in Exeter, Devon, UK. There were two training pubs. One was run by an OK lady, the other by a complete bastard of a man, I can still remember his name, John Chown. In 2 days he reduced me to tears more than once and he terrified me. Yet I learned more from him in that 2 days, than from the woman in 2 months. I always regret I didn't get the opportunity to have that 2 months with him. When we were told we were going to the woman for training, my heart dropped. I just _knew_ he was a far better teacher and could have taught me so much more. Because he was exactly like Gene, "the kind of person who wants nothing more than to do a job right." My driving instructor was the same. Yet I passed first time. Gotta say something...

As I sat down to de-lurk for a tad, and wondered what to label this, the immortal words of Brer Stephanopoulos lumbered to the fore... While we don't have an economy in a monetary sense here on this list, we do have an economy of information on remote viewing primarily, and secondarily on the "program" ("Stargate" being one of its many monikers). For whatever my tiny little old opinion is worth (I'll be the first to say "not much"), I think we should keep our "economy" in mind. I've known Gene for a couple of years or so and have nothing but the HIGHEST regard and respect for him, and I can say the same for Paul Smith. I have the same regard and respect for Liam and Lyn, although I don't really know them. Although I subscribe to this list, I usually find myself reading selected traffic (delayed) due to time constraints. Of the traffic I do make time to read, it usually comprises output from four folks... Yep, Gene, Paul, Liam and Lyn. I'm sure the reason why it's usually those four above any others is obvious, but in case not it's because they are THE four voices of knowledge relative to the others. And THAT is the reason I subscribe. NOT for socializing, nor for ANY other reason... I've subscribed to a handful of lists over my years on the Internet, and I've seen all the personality issues that are flourishing here on all previous lists. The only ones (lists) that survived for any length of time seemed to eventually have migrated to a Moderated format. Otherwise, it's sniping here, sniping there, focus gets lost, people leave, new ones arrive and the process repeats until someone (list owner) finally pulls the plug. So, to recap, I put forth the suggestion that, to maintain the viability and integrity of this discussion list, it move to a Moderated format. If that were to happen, it may not necessarily put an added burden on the list owner... just a different one. And one which could, if desired, could be rotated among more than one person.

Jean Luc I thought we went over that 'threat' stuff when you were here. The 'threat' consisted of 'their' having done so much in training viewers, telepaths, etc., and the continuing 'fear' of their having developed persons who could do Remote Influencing. ;) No worry there. There was no overt threat. It seemed like a techno-gap, and indeed it was . If you have read the book recently mentioned on stargate about the Chinese 'super psychics' you will know that although there IS an overt threat reported in that book, their RV program is in its infancy - literally - and they are way off base in not only their lab controls but in their concentration on children who can open flower buds or read with their ears... :) If you want to go research why their programs were thought of as a threat, research the articles on 'Psychic Warfare' from the Washington Post, I believe. Mostly columnist Jack Anderson's articles on the subject. Ostrander and Schroeder's book came out later, I think 68 or 69. Their interest was sparked by the same articles. But the materials from which I began my own training are of the 1961/2 era. The USSR was at that time ready and willing to share what they were doing to train ordinary college students to learn this skill and related skills. (thank goodness) There was no threat implied. And it was from that same era that I was able to draw more information and protocols to learn RV for myself. In 64 the Iron Curtain came down on further developments over there and it was hard for me or any other researcher to get any access, but not impossible. Fortunately. Threats usually emanate from Politicos, not scientists. Bevy J U.S. Psi Squad stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Otherwise, it's >sniping here, sniping there, focus gets lost, people leave, new ones >arrive and the process repeats until someone (list owner) finally pulls >the plug. Tom...I must totally disagree with your statement regarding the survival of lists. I host several lists..the eldest of which will turn 3 years old this fall. I do not moderate (in the sense of pre-reading and editing posts) any of them. I do have a very clear set of standards that each member receives upon joining. There are no flame wars and other than the occasional growing pain they remain pretty constant. Why? Because for the most part they are a family. Like any family, however, sometimes someone does something that irritates another member...like taking their pet peeve out and stroking it at the dinner table. Now, while I'm sure not everyone likes peeve fur floating around their food, it's my job, as the virtual mamma, to find out why the peeve was brought to the dinner table. Was the peeve in Cousin Sam's pocket and he forgot about him, bringing him out just for a wee bit to stoke for a few minutes and then put away? Or did Cousin Sam deliberately bring the peeve to the table knowing that Cousin Alice was allergic to peeve fur? To find out..I would take Cousin Sam aside and ask, remind him that peeve's should really be left outside to play with egos, especially during dinner and other family gatherings. On the other hand, sometimes it's not really Cousin Sam's fault as Cousin Eddie's wife, being new to the family, saw the peeve in Sam's pocket and dangled a tastey tidbit in front of it causing the peeve to leap from Sam's pocket, run across Cousin Alice's lap, setting off a series of sneezes and alot of rustling and clinking of dinnerware. In this case, I would have to remind Eddie's wife that tidbits should be offered to peeves and egos outside and only after dinner. It causes all sorts of behavior problems if you start feeding them at the table. Cousin Eddie would be brought into the conversation as I would want to know if he had informed his wife of the family rules regarding demeanor expected at the table. Cousin Alice would also be reminded to take her medication as she knows there are peeves present and they set off adverse reactions for her. That being handled in the privacy of the kitchen, the other family members are not present at the actual discussion. During these discussions sometimes you find out things that weren't really obvious before...like the big eggplant with olives for eyes and celery stalks for legs, while intended to make the table festive, actually scared the piddle out of some of the kids. What do you do in that case? Well you bring the children over and show them it's nothing but a big ol'eggplant and there's nothing to be afraid of. If they're still afraid of the eggplant, then perhaps they aren't quite ready to sit at the grown up table and should remain at the kids table for a bit longer....until at least they aren't intimidated by an eggplant. In regard to people leaving and new ones arriving..that in and of itself is the nature of lists. People join a list and it either isn't a good fit or it is. Sometimes they find what they are looking for and when that no longer serves them they move on, others stay because it becomes more than a list to them, it has become a family. It has been my experience that occasionally you will get a group of people that mesh and they remain together, I have been fortunate enough to have shared lists with some folks for five years. When that happens..it's wonderful. We don't always agree, but like a family, we respect what the other has brought to the table >>So, to recap, I put forth the suggestion that, to maintain the viability >and integrity of this discussion list, it move to a Moderated format.

Just a thought. Again, I beg to differ, Tom. Prereading every post is extremely time consuming. Add to that editing and routing it back for corrections and you've just created a list that's no fun for the person starting it. That's why lists get the plug pulled. When you start a list, it is generally because you wish to enjoy it...when it ceases to be enjoyable then what's the point of continuing with it? For security reasons and continuity (unless a formal clearly written set of rules or standards are in place and disciplinary measures outlined clearly as well) allowing passwords and administrative functions to be dispersed between people is not a good idea. Just my two cents.....I'll be out in the yard....my peeve needs attention. Siochain, Vikki stargate : Message: [stargate]

From: Curran2106@... Steve: There are a few things you need to know and understand. First and foremost are the the type of membership you have on your list. Two of the members are US Government officials like myself and I have a professional association with these two individuals in my professional duties. Three others are potential students of mine and two are current students and two are former students who now act as my advisory staff on matters related to RV. I made comments concerning your management of the list none of which were maliciously directed at you. You chose to respond by maligning my integrity, discretion, morals and character. I have the same security clearance as the President of the United States and as such, I must maintain a life style which permits me to undergo frequent detailed examinations of my background. As noted, two of the members of your site are professional colleaques who are often approached during these investigations and asked questions about my loyalty, integrity, morals and character. Now you have publicly maligned and impugned me on these issues. The maintenance of my security clearance is a requirement of my profession, therefore you public impeachment of my character may have well damaged my future within the government. I spent two hours with my attorney this morning at Sunday rates. This two hours cost me just under $400.00. His recommendations and the direction he is taking this matter is as follows: 1. Your comments on my character were improper, malicious and slanderous in that co-workers in my organization were given free access to this data. My ability to work with these individuals has now been placed in jeopardy. 2. You then compounded the issue by continuing to impugn and malign my character after suspending me from the net, thus eliminating any ability of myself to view your comments or to comment on their validity. This personal assault at that time took on other legal ramifications in that it was done in seclusions from the injured party, myself and therefore under US law, any findings for compensation would be trebled. 3. You maintain data on me which is professional in nature in that my comments reflect my abilities and experiences in the art of RV. This data cannot be used by you in and further discussions without my expressed permission and should be eliminated from you archives as soon as possible. 4. Your summary elimination of my access to your site is your right. Your continued decryment of my methods, comments and character were inappropriate at that time and therefore my attorney STRONGELY suggests you immediately reinstate me to prevent the impression that further maligning and impeachments are being discussed "in camera" (behind closed doors) so that the injured party cannot witness nor comment on the impeachment and malignment. My attorney has notified me that the age of sufferage in Great Britain is 18 years old and that a unique relationship exists between the US and Great Britain in relationship to copywrite and slander. Perpetrators are not secure in either country from the suits levied by citizens of the other. He is drawing up the papers for this suit at this time and will proceed if his determination is that sufficient evidence exist to carry the suit forward. He reiterated his strong recommendation that you grant access to the postings of your net to me immediately although in deferrence to your rights...you can refuse my postings unless they are to comment on any further maligning of my character. I have also been advised to send this note to at least one other member of the website to preclude any reply that indicates the message did not get through. Please advise when you have reinstated me.

My response to Gene's email. -- Gene, Your e-mail has been received and understood. However, to the best of my knowledge, e-mail is not a legally recognised method for giving legal notice. If you wish your lawyer to contact me, please have him write to the following address: Steve Crietzman 49 St Gilberts Road Bourne, Lincs. PE10 9XD United Kingdom If you really feel it necessary for this issue to be brought through the courts, at no doubt huge expense to both myself and you, then that is of course your right. I would however, ask you to consider a less expensive option before resorting to such drastic measures. I would prefer, of course, the chance to speak to you by telephone, or to discuss this issue on a more personal level, so we can attempt to reach an understanding between us that will hopefully resolve all this issues, without the need for expensive legal ligitation, which has no guarentee of success and will only cause further frustration for everyone, as well as upsetting myself, my family, my friends, colleagues, and others. I suspect it would be an extremely expensive, traumatic experience for myself and my family, and I would hope that you are not so intent on this drastic coruse of action that you will not consider, or at least attempt, a less drastic method of resolving our disagreements and differences. If you would like to accept my offer of a polite phonecall to discuss these issues, and hopefully reach a mutually-satisfactory resolution to this problem, please call me on +44 1778 393472. I can assure you I only wish to do what I feel is in the best interests of all concerned, and I seriously believe, at this present time, that my suspending you from the list was within my rights and was the proper cause of action. I am not so rigid that I am not prepared to change my mind if convinced otherwise, however. Gene, if you would like to accept my offer of a phonecall to resolve this, that will hopefully save both myself and yourself a lot of unneces sary trouble, before resorting to any more drastic measures, please contact me. A long, drawn-out, confrontational lawsuit, assuming you filed one, has no guarentee of success, would be extremely expensive to file, and there are much cheaper ways to hopefully resolve this problem, that do not require a lawyer or courtroom. I hope you will consider giving diplomacy and discussion a try outside of the courtroom before you consider proceeding any further. I'm only human, Gene. Please consider that phonecall.

Also, is anyone aware of any viewers who have >undergone EEG testing (or MRI, or any other type of modern brain testing >during RV.. > >Thanks to all, >-Tao_Sk8r > Hi All; Liam here Excellent question, and one that I do not see people beating down the doors to answer. I will give it a shot. First I need to let you know where I am coming from. There are two schools of thought when it comes to RV. One school is the Newton School. This school is concerned with discovering the scientific reasons behind RV and believes that scientific solutions improve the quality of remote viewing. The other school is what I call the Irish School. The Irish School believes RV is magic. When you discover something that makes the magic work better you incorporate it into your style, whether it makes since scientifically or not. I belong to the Irish School, in case you had not guessed. OK, having set the stage, lets look at CRV first. My Newton friends tell me there is no altered state involved in CRV. It is done in the Alfa state. I can buy that, however there is a not to subtle shift, at least IMHO. The problem is for me now, to try explain that shift. It is a slight numbness in the brain (not precisely but that's about as good a description as I can find). For those of you who have boxed, it is a little like walking into a medium hard punch. You are not really hurt but you are stunned for a second. There is a slight withdrawal from the physical. There is a slight shift from the here and now. (If I sound like I am faltering.....I am.) I find once my students have worked a few sights they become familiar with the feeling. Not a good answer, but the best I can do for now. Any CRV monitor is familiar with this shift. You watch a viewers eyes as he/she is getting ready to go. All of sudden there is a slight click and then he/she puts the tip of his/her pen on the paper and you give him/her the coordinates. If you do not believe there is a shift, try talking sense to a viewer after he/she returns from riding the signal line for an hour or so. How do you achieve that shift. Paul Smith plays unbelievably bad music at incredible decibels. Lyn kept busy with a scheduled time for the session. I relax for awhile, daydream and then just before beginning the session I say a little prayer. Do not meditate. It will put me to deep and alter the Alfa state, at least IMO. So one medium to medium good prayer and away I go. My wife is part Native-American and follows the Red Road. She started smudging before working a site. This seemed to improve her accuracy. (The Irish School does not keep statistics). Many of my students follow the Red Road and they also begin smudging with the same results. I am not Native American and I do not really follow their ways, but what the hey. It seemed to work for everyone else, so I started smudging. Worked for me also, so I added it to the magic. Now for ERV. Here there is a change in the state at least according to my Newton friends. But the signal line feels the same as it does in CRV, only several times stronger, IMO. Here I meditate to prepare myself to work. I will not go into detail about the meditation. I also smudge before working ( I do not know why Magic works. I just know it works if I do certain things.) There is a feeling I have when I am ready to work. There is a tingling and lightness in my arms. My mouth is dry and my speech is slurred. My brain is a mess and it is impossible to make logical decisions. I check from time to time during the site. If that feeling is gone from my arms I meditate for a few seconds and get it back. The problem is, particularly working without a monitor, of going too deep. I go away. I do not where I go or how long I am there. When I come back I do not where I was. To make it short, there is a window in ERV. If you are to shallow you come up above the window. If you are too deep you go below the window. You have to stay in that narrow band between the two. It is not really all that difficult and you do get better with practice. It is still a whole lot easier when you work ERV with a monitor. I know this was pretty disjointed. I hoped it helped. slainte May the force be with you Liam stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

>Hi All; Liam here > >Excellent question, and one that I do not see >people beating down the doors to answer. Yes, it does occur to me as somewhat unusual that my request has stirred up so little in the way of response.. I thought it was an important one to ask because I've studied the RV phenomenon in as in-depth a manner as I've been able to with various freely available resources, and have never seen any discussion of the practical matter, the method if you will, that is used to enter the needed state.. This is crucial to me, cause I've grasped what straws I can, and seen various RV protocols, but little on methods, and this leaves me at a loss as to how to proceed into becoming a halfway decent RVer.. >I will give it a shot. Thank you VERY much, from what little I've gleaned about you, I know that your opinion on various matters is held in high regard by much of the RV community, and I appreciate your description, as 'unscientific' as it may be.. >First I need to let you know where I am coming >from.

I belong to the Irish >School, in case you had not guessed. Yes, I've read enough of your postings to place you firmly in that camp, and, with that I'll add that I reside firmly in BOTH camps, oddly enough.. I believe that RV IS indeed majick, and that to some extent scientific study of it, and related phenomenon can never cause an important enough paradigm shift in terms of methods, to really alter the face of RV, as it were.. However I do believe that a scientific understanding of what goes on in the brain during RV, and other mind super powers (to paraphrase Ingo) might lead to some helpful developments in the area of methods.. I think that explains my take, although it does sound somewhat contradictory I think careful literal reading of it will reveal my meaning.. >OK, having set the stage, lets look at CRV first. >My Newton friends tell me there is no altered >state involved in CRV.

Yes, I take your meaning here, and I think I may have been mistaken about Beta, and my slight dyslexia transposed Alpha and Beta.. Anyhow, I've used several 'brain machines' or light & sound devices and flipped through various states with them, in hopes of becoming familiar enough with the states to achieve them without the devices, and unfortunately never had any spontaneous RVish phenomena take place.. Anyhow, the point of all this is that Alpha IS actually an altered state. as beta is the normal waking one (to disagree with your friends, not you).. >The problem is for me now, to try explain that >shift.

That's actually pretty good, and sufices as an answer to the lesser of my questions.. I really, in retrospect might have opted to omit it, since describing altered states of any magnitude is always almost beyond the realm of words, and therefore virtually impossible to describe.. I guess what I really was attempting to ask was about the practical, hand-on methods for getting to the requisite state.. Not that you haen't done a pretty good job of answering this question, but merely to redirect any future answerers of the question (of which I hope there will be many, and I hope to hear from all viewers on the list, no matter exerience level).. >How do you achieve that shift.

There is a distinction here that I think is important, while in some areas I side with the scientists, I TOTALLY agree with the principle of adding things which work experientially, and this concept, IMHO shouldn't be alien to science.. >I know this was pretty disjointed.

Re: [stargate] Back to Star Gate : about the RV Russian threat Lyn here. Please forgive this if it sounds impertinent. It is actually a need to clear up some confusion and/or ignorance on my part. I was only with the program for about 9 years, and so there are probably many things I don't know about everyone who was involved before and after me, but I would like to fill in any gaps that may exist in my knowledge.

If that's already been done, please let us know where in the archives to look to read it. Like I say, I am not trying to be accusatory here, but I have had people whom I have never heard of or met before come up to me in crowds and announce loudly (so others could hear) that they worked with me in the project at Ft. Meade the same time I was there, and didn't I remember them there? I have even had two people offer me money to say that they were in the project with me so they could start charging people for visualization training. Needless to say, after such incidents, I am sort of sensitive about hearing of people who were involved in the project, but of whom I don't know anything. There were many such people, I have just become cautious. I know that Steve has probably already found out about Glenn's and Aquaserene's backgrounds, and would probably vouch for them, but these are two people I'm not familiar with, and like I say, would just like to fill in any gaps. Nobody knows the whole story, but I'm trying to pick up new pieces all the time. Thanks. No offense - just wondering, as I'm sure others are.

The intel community at large was busy doing its own thing. One of those specifically concerned individuals was Skip. Even as late as 1992, when I retired from the project, we were still collecting information on the methods, practices, projects, etc. of other countries involved in parapsychological warfare/research/you name it/etc. Russia was just one of them, and not really one of the most important. The tracking of other efforts was a continual part of our jobs - just to add to an already busy work schedule. As I understand it, the earliest reports of Russian efforts came through normal intel sources, but then Skip and some others took up the project to investigate the information and to collect more, report, and advise.

Hi All, After receiving several comments suggesting I switch this list to moderated mode, and considering the recent troubles on the list, among other things, I am afraid I feel it is necessary to switch this list to Moderated Mode. This means that posts must be approved by the moderator before they are allowed to hatch over the list. I still intend to be as liberal as possible, and allow posts through unless I see good reason not to. The only noticeable difference is that I will react to many mails before they enter the list, as opposed to once they've already been posted for all to see. I am sorry to those of you who are opposed to moderated lists. I can only promise these people that apart from the fact that posts to the list will appear in packages (as I logon and approve messages each day and send the messages off to the list), there shouldn't be much of a difference to the list itself, although it should be easier to manage in many ways (and harder in others). I hope you all can understand my decision. I have been able to hold off on switching to moderated mode for quite some time, despite some really tough challenges in that time, but for greater security, now feel that it is important the list be switched to moderated mode. In all other respects, however, the list will basically be the same. I am sorry for any inconveniance this decision may cause, but the effects should, hopefully, be negligeable.

> Anyhow, the point of all > this is that Alpha IS actually an altered state. > as beta is the normal waking one (to disagree with > your friends, not you).. Just as a point of technicality...during the "waking" state we switch in and out of states. For example, most of us who drive to work are usually in an Alpha state. If we are concentrating we are also in Alpha state. Paradoxically, when we REM (dream) the brain wave emission are the the same as Beta as we are awake!. In fact, it is hard to tell the difference on EEG results. I believe science seek to understand the nature of the phenomena to classify and categorize the result so as to reproduce the SAME method, unequivocally, across the board. Thus, the idea that an exact principle can be derived from its study would signify that others are able to apply the same principle to get the exact same result. It is a part of the Scientific Method. Of course, Science has its limitations on the phenomena of psi in that it is a crude tool for a phenomena that is outside of scientific realm. Then there are those who "just like to drive the car and not worry about what is thumping under the hood," as a colleague of mine recently stated. Nothing wrong with that...except when we seek to transfer an exact knowledge to the recipient and it doesn't work as efficiently as it could. We all, to a certain extent, rely on both...we just tend to lean more on the one that validates our belief. electrix stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Aloha Lyn, I am distressed somewhat that my comments about the origins of the Intel knowledge of the soviet bloc Psi-threat failed to give Mr. Atwater his due. Even after trying to make it clear that I in no way was minimizing his contributions. As always in Intel some dynamic person made things happen, pushed the ball to get it rolling and kept it rolling by tireless effort. That person I have no doubt was Mr. Atwater. Sorry about the confusion. It seems I am in an environment where each word or idea must be measured carefully. I will be more precise if I can. Aloha Glenn stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hi Glen, I was going through my files and came across a copy of an unclassified document that someone sent me, way, way back. It is entitled Soviet and Czechoslovakian Parapsychology Research dated September, 1975 and prepared by U.S. Army Medical Intelligence and Information Agency and the Office of the Surgeon General for the DIA. The authors are Louis F. Maire III and Major J.D. LaMothe, MSC. So, this seems to be the first authenticated documentation of the U.S. becoming concerned about Soviet bloc psi research. What was Skip Atwater's role, then, in assessing the Russian psi threat? (If that isn't classified).

same principle to get the exact same result. It is a part of the Scientific Method. Of course, Science has its limitations on the phenomena of psi in that it is a crude tool for a phenomena that is outside of scientific realm. >> Right, but psi is not outside of the scientific realm. Science just hasn't defined a unified theory of quantum mechanics and relativity adequately which takes into consideration the non-material physical reality of consciousness. The following discussion lists address the subject of scientific approaches to consciousness: Physics@... (For info you can go to the Intuition Network website) Quantum-Mind@... (To subscribe you can e-mail Listserv@...) prf@... ( I'll have to dig around in my old e-mail for the subscription address) I find all of these lists informative and in a number of ways, but my background is in psychiatry so this approach tends, as Electrix pointed out, to validate my beliefs. The issue of consciousness and physics is addressed at both the Physics and Quantum Mind lists, while the prf is the Parapsychology Research Forum. Jack Sarfatti has been kind of directing the conversation on the Physics list, while Stuart Hameroff has been moderating the Quantum-Mind list out of the University of Arizona's Consciousness Studies area. The PRF is a moderated forum which is contributed to by professional parapsychological researchers from a variety of institutions including PEAR, Rhine, Koestler, the University of Nevada etc... There are many scientists from a variety of fields seriously studying the various phenomena of consciousness and the implications for psi but without some better defined consciousness research it will take a long time to get there. I am pretty much a lurker on these lists as I do not possess the credentials to communicate as effectively as I would like with most of the contributors, but I am learning a great deal.

Hello: I've been wondering if anyone out there has tried ERV during a lucid dream (dream state where one is totally aware he/she is dreaming)? This seems like a good platform for EVR work, where one could still perform some basic protocol targeting something, but was still in fact asleep, anyone know? Bill stargate : Message: [stargate]

Hi Electrix, No, everyone is still here.. there are just a couple of things happening behind the scenes that caused a slowdown yesterday. There shouldn't be any more slowdowns. Sorry for the delays, but relax, everyone is still here Electrix! Best regards, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hi Bill, I used to have lucid dreams fairly frequently. While this might not be the answer you are looking for, I felt I'd better chip in my experiences with regards to lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming is dreaming while being fully aware you are dreaming. You usually gain at least some degree of control over the dream while in this state. Whenever I realise I am dreaming, I always want to get up and fly in the dream - something about flying just seems so natural and relaxing.. However, I often set aims for myself to carry out when I become aware I am dreaming. In the dream I don't seem to "remember" the aims I set myself, and I do not appear to have any access to my waking/conscious memories, I only know about the "here and now", i.e. the dream. If this is common to everyone, I can imagine the problem: people would become aware of the dream all right, but would forget to carry out the remote-viewing they've been tasked with. Not unless they have been giving themselves repeated messages not only to test if you are dreaming (the way lucid dreaming is programmed), but also to program themselves to do a remote-viewing when they become conscious. It seems to take a while of repeated 'drilling in' of these messages before the sub/unconscious (not sure which is the correct term), gets what you are trying to tell it. The best analogy is like the earth and the sea, or let's say - a pool. If the sun is hot, it may take no time at all for the earth (which represents your conscious in this analogy) to heat up. It's easy to memorise something and drill it in. But the subconscious (the pool) takes ages before it heats up. It needs to be constantly drilled for a long period of time with that sun's heat. I.e. you need to be drilling home the message "I want to lucid dream/am I dreaming now?" It can take weeks before this will settle into subconscious, however. ON THE OTHER HAND, there is a plus side. When the sun stops, the land/earth will quickly cool off, but the subconscious, again, is slower to respond, and it will retain heat for longer without being drilled. It's slow to adapt. So, if you stopped the lucid dream exercises, my guess is that you'd still have them for a while, say another week or so, but eventually, they would stop naturally, and it would again have to start practising, for say a week, before they'll start again. This is merely my own experienec with the subconscious mind and lucid dreaming. I'm not offering this advice as an expert, but merely my own experiences with lucid dreaming. It's my opinion that the slow nature of the subconscious/right brain in a dream would make it very hard to remember to carry out logical instructions your conscious mind/left brain desires. I'd like to hear from anyone else who has had lucid dreams experiences and to know if they have experienced any similar restrictions within lucid dreaming, and especially about the 'speed' of conscious vs. subconscious mind 'programming'. I hope this information is useful. Best regards, Steve. stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

> I've been wondering if anyone out there has tried ERV during a lucid > dream (dream state where one is totally aware he/she is dreaming)? Hi Bill and all (I've been studying online etiquette from Liam): I can't speak from experience, but I am coaching someone who is quite adept in attaining lucid dream states. The reason we cultivate LD's is for a launch platform for OBE's. We have had a great deal of success in getting her to both states, but maintaining control is TOUGH. It seems the SC mind is like an inquisitive child, and has a difficult time caring what the waking mind has determined it should be interested in. From this, I would infer that RV protocols would be very difficult to adhere to. Like Steve says about flying... who cares about work (RV), when you can fly? I apologize if this response has gotten horribly off-topic. Greg stargate : Message: Re: [stargate]

Hi, my experience is that after declaring all my physical impairments before beginning a RV session I will be ok. The pains won't bother me during the session, in fact I can hardly feel anything, just what's at the target site, like whether it's cold, hot or scary there. The physical pain (headache, etc.) comes back about 30 minutes after session ends. When I do ERV it seems I block out my physical problems totally. I am not even aware of my physical presence.

Yes. I hate to be nit-picky here, but the answer to your exact question is found in the rules and requirements for proper conduct of an ERV session. Those requirements are: (partial list) 1. You have to have a monitor to follow the protocols. The monitor must be trained in specifically ERV protocols, and not vary from them. If you don't know what those protocols are, then what you'r doing isn't ERV. 2. The monitor must first allow the viewer to get into a hypnogogic state and then provide cueing (usually coordinates, like in CRV) which will bring the viewer onto target. 3. The monitor must be trained and adept at keeping the viewer in the hypnogogic state, sometimes for hours on end, without letting him/her either wake up or go to sleep. This is a REALLY hard task to do, and takes not only training, but real talent, as well. 4. The monitor must be trained in guiding the viewer to gain perceptions without imparting information into the session. This is a MUCH harder job than it sounds. 5. The monitor must be trained in recording information about the viewer, and at the same time, keep track of where the viewer is at the site, what the viewer is doing at the site, what the viewer is perceiving at the site, etc. In addition to recording all that, the monitor must also record time hacks to track the progress of the session. 6. The monitor must fill out all reports after clearing up any confusion on his/her part, then review the report with the viewer to be certain there are no misunderstandings. 7. The monitor must both prepare the viewing room for the session and clean/clear the room afterwards - janitor duty. 8. The monitor must then do all the final paperwork, briefings, etc. As you can see, there are three things in all those rules which answer your question. First, the viewer has to remain in the hypnogogic state and be guided through it while answering verbal questions asked by a monitor. People in the lucid dreaming state can't be asked questions by an outside person, and even if so, couldn't answer. Lucid dreaming is not done in the hypnogogic state. Second, you can't have an ERV session without a monitor. No matter what people tell you ERV is, the fact is that you just can't do ERV alone. You have to have a monitor. Third, the monitor must specifically be trained in and must be working ERV protocols. If anything else being done, it is not ERV. There is as widespread a misunderstanding about ERV as there is about CRV. "ERV" isn't just "viewing while half asleep". It is, in fact, a very formatted and strictly structured form of viewing in which certain requirements are met. If those requirements aren't met, then it may be good stuff, it may be "viewing" of some other kind, it may be productive, it may get you the answers you need, etc. - but it isn't "ERV". Now, as to your question about productive "viewing" while in the lucid dreaming state - that's another thing altogether. Stephen LaBerge says that it can be done, and done quite effectively. He has how-to books out, and teaches a course in lucid dreaming, out in California. If you haven't read his books, I would suggest that you get one. It is very enlightening...... but it isn't ERV. The Monroe Institute gets you into a state which many have likened to lucid dreaming, and have shown that some rather effective "remote viewing" can take place while in that state. From what Joe tells me, it is very productive ...... but it isn't "ERV".

Thank you Angela Thank you Aquaserene Thank you Bevy Thank you Electrix Thank you Glenn Thank you Liam Thank you Lyn Thank you Ron Thank you Steve And THX to the eventual forgotten persons from the list... Thank you so much for your contributions on the "RV Russian threat" topic. It was a pleasure to read you and to discover so many new pieces of the still in construction puzzle of the international RVing community :) Yes, of course you raised new questions (among which : what is exactly RV counterspying ;-), or which are these countries having a still active RV unit :), or is there somewhere an interesting RVer international who's who to read ?, or...) but it wouldn't be fair to monopolize longer the talk.

Another interesting theory that has been put forward by Gertude Schmeidler is that psi is processed in the same way as regular perception and uses the same neural processing. It is possible that the signal line is received differently but the processing appears to be the same. Kind regards Angela Thompson Smith Inner Vision Research Institute
