                                                       WHAT IS "REMOTE VIEWING?"



                                       



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Remote viewing is the purported ability for a viewer to gather information on a remote target consisting of an object, place, or person, etc., that is hidden from the physical perception of the viewer and typically separated from the viewer at some distance or time.[1][2]

The Parapsychological Association describes it as a form of extra-sensory perception, usually attempted during experiments in which the percipient tries to describe a distant location or the environs of a distant agent. The term was introduced by Russell Targ and Harold Puthoff in 1974.[3]

As with other forms of extra-sensory perception or mentalism, the objective validity of remote viewing is generally disputed.

 HISTORY



The Stargate Project was one of a number of code names for government "remote viewing programs". Others included Sun Streak, Grill Flame, Center Lane by DIA and INSCOM, and SCANATE by CIA, from the 1970s, through to 1995. It was an offshoot of research done at Stanford Research Institute (SRI).[4]

The Stargate Project created a set of protocols designed to make clairvoyance a more scientific process, and minimize as much as possible session noise and inaccuracy.[citation needed]

The project was eventually terminated, according to the official report at the time, because there was insufficient evidence of the utility of the intelligence data produced. David Goslin, of the American Institute for Research said, "There's no documented evidence it had any value to the intelligence community."[5]

In 1995 the project was transferred to the CIA and a retrospective evaluation of the results was done. The CIA contracted the American Institutes for Research for this evaluation. An analysis conducted by statistician Jessica Utts showed a statistically significant effect, with some subjects scoring 5%-15% above chance, though subject reports included a large amount of irrelevant information, and when reports did seem on target they were vague and general in nature.[6] Skeptic Ray Hyman concluded a null result[6] and based upon both of their collected findings, the CIA followed the recommendation to terminate the 20 million dollar project.[5] Time magazine stated in 1995 three full-time psychics were still working on a $500,000-a-year budget out of Fort Meade, Maryland, which would soon be shut down,[5] which occured in 1996.[7]

CRITICISM



According to Dr. David Marks in experiments conducted in the 1970s at the Stanford Research Institute, the notes given to the judges contained clues as to which order they were carried out, such as referring to yesterday's two targets, or they had the date of the session written at the top of the page. Dr. Marks concluded that these clues were the reason for the experiment's high hit rates.[8][9]

Dr. Marks has also suggested that the participants of remote viewing experiments are influenced by subjective validation, a process through which correspondences are perceived between stimuli that are in fact associated purely randomly. [10]

Others have said that, the information from remote viewing sessions can be vague and include a lot of erroneous data.[6] The 1995 report for the American Institute for Research "An Evaluation of Remote Viewing: Research and Applications" by Mumford, Rose and Goslin, contains a section of anonymous reports describing how remote viewing was tentatively used in a number of operational situations. The three reports conclude that the data was too vague to be of any use, and in the report that offers the most positive results the writer notes that the viewers "had some knowledge of the target organizations and their operations but not the background of the particular tasking at hand."[6]

Remote viewing (RV) is a procedure developed by parapsychologists at the Stanford Research Institute to allegedly perform clairvoyance under controlled conditions. Somewhat similar to astral projection, the phenomenon involves a belief in the projection of consciousness to remote locations, and is considered a pseudoscience by mainstream scientists.

Remote viewing (RV) is a form of clairvoyance by which a viewer is said to use his or her clairvoyant abilities to "view", i.e. gather information on a Target consisting of an object, place, person, etc., which is hidden from physical view of the viewer and typically separated from the viewer in space by some distance, and sometimes separated in time (future or past) as well.

Remote Viewing is distinguished from other forms of clairvoyance in that it follows a specific experimental 'protocol '(or some variant of it). The critical aspect common to these protocols, proponents contend, is that the viewer is 'blind 'to the target in the sense of being given no (or negligible) information regarding the target being viewed.

While proponents call the Remote Viewing technique "scientific", there is a minority acceptance among scientists for this phenomenon. Critics claim the experiments relied heavily on subjective interpretation of the results and claim that the experiments lacked repeated confirmation under rigorously controlled scientific conditions.

As someone who has listened to Art Bell's "Dreamland" on talk show radio, as well as George Noory's "Coast to Coast AM" I'll bet I've heard interviews with every major remote viewer around. While I can buy the scientific approach most remote viewers engage in, their findings sure disagree with each other. Some see a future for earth that is filled with hope, but if you listened to guys like Ed Dames, one might as well quit the day job, empty out the bank account and go off on a big long party, because according to him "it's all over." So, IMHO it's really questionable whether remote viewing is any more accurate that other psychic or intuitive approaches. I've heard a whole lot of predictions from remote viewers for the future, but ultimately their score card doesn't necessarily seem any better than the vast majority of other psychics who make prophetic statements. However, I have also noticed that when remote viewers target something from the past or from our present that can be substantiated in physical reality, they do have a fairly good track record.

So maybe this only means that in terms of remote viewing the past and present can be substantiated in the great "all that is" by objective evidence, but when push comes to shove the future is still up for grabs?
