The Basics of Remote Viewing
Remote viewing is a practice in which a person can seek out impressions of a distant object, person, or location. This is done by purportedly sensing information with the mind. Usually, people who practice remote viewing can provide information about objects, people, or locations that are hidden from ordinary sight.
Ingo Swann is a self-proclaimed psychic, artist, and author who claimed to have the ability to read minds. Swann co-created remote viewing with Russell Targ and Harold E. Puthoff. However, there is much controversy surrounding his claim. Here are some facts to consider when evaluating Ingo’s claims.
Swann was born in Telluride, Colorado, and was the son of a truck driver. He was fascinated with the Milky Way, and later went on to co-found the Stanford Research Institute for Remote Viewing. The remote viewing research he conducted during this period was later funded by the CIA, and the project eventually led to the Project Stargate.
Ingo Swann, an author of the book “UFOs and UFOs”, claims that he has had remote viewing experiences and has worked with the CIA. He has worked with secret agencies and has a secret history with them. He even claims to have visited a secret underground facility near Washington DC, where he was taken to watch a huge UFO that was due to come over a lake.
Ingo Swann’s research helped develop the process used to study remote viewing. He developed an experimental protocol that involved exposing subjects to specific patterns of the circumcerebral magnetic field. This significantly changed the subjects’ subjective experiences. In addition, subjects were asked to sketch and describe distant stimuli. Their ratings of accuracy were correlated with the proportion of unusual seven-Hz spike activity.
Ingo Swann was an influential figure in the field of PSI. He was the leader in numerous scientific and governmental projects that sought to understand the power of the human mind. His work has been featured in most popular books about PSI, including four volumes in the popular Time-Life series. The methods he developed were ultimately used by thousands of people.
In 1978, Ingo Swann was involved in remote viewing experiments conducted by the U.S. Army and Stanford Research Institute. This clandestine initiative was known as “Project Stargate”. The project involved psychics spying on the Soviet Union and using their abilities to monitor their activities from Palo Alto. It later became the basis for the movie “The Men Who Stare At Goats.”
West Virginia/Urals Sites viewings
Remote West Virginia/Urals Sites viewers have been able to identify a secret underground facility in West Virginia. One viewer was able to identify personnel and codewords within the facility. Another was able to describe the site’s above ground and underground terrain. The third person was able to identify a large crane in Semipalatinsk, USSR.
Information transmission in remote viewing experiments
Information transmission is the process of sending information from one place to another. This process is possible in some cases, but it is more difficult in other cases. For example, if a remote viewer sees an object, it will be difficult to translate the information into a meaningful description. However, there are methods that allow remote viewers to communicate their thoughts and feelings. One such method is precognition. This technique uses a set of rules to help the viewer understand the information that is being sent from one place to another.
The study’s methodology has been criticized several times, but subsequent replications have provided ample scientific evidence. Moreover, a growing number of individuals are demonstrating high-quality remote viewing. One of these individuals is the talented Hella Hammid. The most convincing results, however, were generated under the control of the program monitors.
The first phase of the experiment involved a long-distance remote viewing experiment conducted on a research center in Semipalatinsk, USSR. This experiment consisted of three phases. In Phase I, the experimenter provided the Subject S1 with map coordinates in degrees and minutes, and the target facility’s designation as an R&D test facility. After the subject gave the description, the experimenters activated the remote-viewing activity.
In 1974, the SRI’s research into remote viewing was published in the Nature journal. In this article, Pat Price, a research associate, described the experiments. He was stationed in a Faraday cage at SRI International Labs and was given thirty minutes to view the target location.
In the same year, the declassification of intelligence documents led to the publication of the phenomenon. Governments began to fund remote viewing research, funding about US$20 million over two decades. Over the course of these two decades, the intelligence community and scientists conducted 154 remote viewing experiments involving 227 subjects. Puthoff suggested that the primary focus of these experiments was assessing Soviet threats.
In a study, a Washington, DC think tank with ties to the government evaluated the data collected through remote viewing. The study’s methodology included a control condition to test for chance factors in the process of remote viewing. In addition, independent judges evaluated the results by sending descriptions and visiting the target sites. Ultimately, the results did not support the hypothesis of “remote viewing.”
Implications of remote viewing
The first step in understanding remote viewing is to consider how it works. The term remote viewing describes a phenomenon in which a person can observe an object and describe it without the use of words. The person may describe the target by naming its shape, size, color, and smell. The person may proceed to describe more specific ideas as they practice remote viewing.
The term remote viewing has been used to describe the phenomenon of nonlocal consciousness. In these experiments, the subjects are asked to provide detailed information without their conscious awareness. Usually, the information requested should not be disclosed to the person requesting the information. In this book, physicist Russell Targ explains the scientific implications of remote viewing and provides detailed exercises for cultivating psychic abilities.
The scientific method used in remote viewing is based on the concept of resonance, vibration, and frequency. Researchers believe that these phenomena can be mediated using nonlocal perception. However, the exact mechanism by which this happens is still unclear, despite the numerous reports and studies. A recent study investigated the effect of light and darkness on remote viewing, and whether they interacted. The researchers used randomized targets and a free response description to assess the effect of light and darkness on participants’ ability to perceive objects.
In addition to investigating the scientific aspects of remote viewing, the researchers also sought to discover the possible uses of this technique. Some people say that remote viewing can help in locating missing people or finding mineral deposits. However, the results are highly variable and may not be useful for finding objects lost in the world.
While the results of the first trial of remote viewing were almost photographic, the researchers also observed statistical yields above chance expectations. In contrast, later attempts to duplicate the results found a mixed bag of ‘hits’ and apparent failures. The findings of these trials may be a harbinger of a broader phenomenon.
Despite the limitations of the study, researchers have been able to create a method that allows them to view objects even from far off. For example, they could use a computer that reveals the location of a subject. This technology can be used to monitor people’s mental state or perform other functions.
