Remote Viewing Practice

Postby MikeJamieson » Mon Mar 10, 2008 5:26 pm

I was thinking that soon I would have to devote an upcoming part
of the article series to a discussion of the history behind the actual
development of the standards and methodology for RViewing.

I've had a copy of the manual for a long time now. Often reading it
over the years.

I've also had some exposure (indirectly) to the nature of training
offered by many popular psychic training schools. Thanks to a guy
who spent the thousands of bucks back in the 70s or early 80s to
get that training.

Also, I've had exposure to an in depth education to ALL the esoteric
traditions on this planet, taking many units of classes at Humboldt State
University back in the 1970s and continuing that education on my own
(often involving direct examination of the various new religious movements
so popular back then).

So, I feel pretty confident that I can sort out the nature of various influences
on the development of RV practice.

Besides, I used to hang out at that same coffehouse that Sarfatti did, during the same time period! I should be an expert! :-)

Sorry to see the argument going on. I have missed some twists and
turns in the road here recently. Obviously. Thankyou to everyone for helping
in sorting things out.

For the record, I already have Hal Puthoff's thoughts on my question.
That, and everything else, will be a part of the articles on RV methodology.
Come to think of it, maybe that should be the focus (after some sort of
nifty little summary of the history up through the 1995 demise of the program?). That way we can branch off into related "spiritual/psychic"
technologies, and people may learn some tools to use in the process.
(Like learning how to RV themselves, for example!)

We trust your ability, Mike, to follow the leads and provide citations and sources for everything - cutting through all of the hype. It's one of the major reasons that I've been pleased to have you as a member here all this time.

an "earlier" CRV manual

Postby MikeJamieson » Tue Mar 11, 2008 8:09 pm

The above looks like a "rawer" version of the Smith/Swann manual
(which was posted on the internet in 1998).

It's based on 3 1/2 years of training under Swann.

Have you all seen this one also? It was new to me.

Norman Dixon and preconscious processing......

Above describes a work and study of what is also known
as subliminal perception. Dixon's two main works in this
area were (according to Paul Smith) key resources in
the training of RV methodology.

Swann's primary "guru"

Postby MikeJamieson » Tue Mar 11, 2008 8:46 pm

In either chapter 24 or 25 of his online book, Swann reports
on the various key influences on him. The main one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Steiner

That chapter surveys many of the movements of that time!
(Included is his description of involvement with Scientology
courses.)

Anyone else remember also the "Silva Mind Control" group?

Here's the chapter in question:

I noticed some of the titles already noted by Paul Smith.

I must say Ive been a bit dubious about Remote Viewing ever since Yuri Geller was involved with it, however, after seeing a programme on TV about it a year or two ago Im probably on the wall now.
So Id be interested in the subject

Hi Chorlton, I'm just hearing about some work being doing in the UK
now. Will pass that on when I learn about it.

I think its one of the only real 'powers' that can be tested,....... to a point.

Ive always wondered if it was related to Deja Vu. The most bizarre incident I went through was on a shopping trip in Limoges when we went wandering and went round a corner which opened out onto a square and for some reason I recognised the place, even to the point of knowing there was a small cafe across the square and round the corner which was out of sight of where wer were at the time. Curious.

This is interesting...

Deja vu 'recreated in laboratory'
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/5194382.stm

I get Deja Vu a LOT. (Deja Vu all over again?) 8)

The explanation that makes the most sense to me is for some reason what you're experiencing gets stored in your memory *before* your consciousness gets to process it… normally it’s the other way around (or perhaps occurs simultaneously)… then (some number of milliseconds later) when your consciousness finishes what ever it was doing (thinking about boobs?) and gets around to “processing” new input it “feels” like it’s coming from your memory… because it is! Or something like that… :)

In musician’s terms it would be like soloing a delayed effects channel return with the delay feedback set to zero. (i.e. 100% wet, no dry signal)

No new physics (e.g. parallel universes or retrocausality) required… :D

HMMMMMM
I did consider that, but I had to walk right across the square to see if the cafe was there after recognising it so that would mean the delayed action would have to be near continuous over a period of time.

Ive also toyed with the idea of some sort of memory being carried through the generations in sperm or ova. I mean why not, many other characteristics are carried down through the years.

Then again AD using your idea I would be thinking about boobs all day long!! haha (Im a dedicated perv, definatley a boob man)
