Remote viewing - When will someone lead?

This week I left my membership to IRVA (International Remote Viewing Association) behind with the announcement to the admin that I would not be renewing the $50 fee.

Nearly two years ago after a long time watching IRVA from the outside I decided to try to participate from the inside to see if this could bring some much needed enthusiasm to the field of remote viewing - after all you have to be in it to win it - or so I hear.

Once inside these enclaves it soon became clear that this was another organisation like many others that really did nothing with the talented and enthusiastic people who work and run at the grass roots levels of the field. That the main aim of the organisation had become lost over time and now its only real aim was to keep itself alive, like a dying man hooked up to a tank of oxygen, one more breath, one more breath...

Time after time in forum discussions I saw talented and dedicated remote viewers who cried out for projects, full of ideas for expansion and modernisation beaten down with demoralised attitudes and excuses of money, time and resources.

So after nearly two years I would not renew - we are in financial turmoil across the globe and I couldn't justify $50 membership fee on a randomly produced black and white newsletter containing reviews of old remote viewing books and conference highlights where people talked anout the so called glory days of remote viewing in the 1970s.

I get around within Remote viewing community and will work with anyone who works properly and who will share and over the years I've discussed and met with many remote viewers, many of which cry out for and want leadership, want a direction to follow, want help and companionship on the learning journey that is remote viewing - the question is, if IRVA cant do this then who will.

Its a crying shame really because like we have all seen on report cards from teachers in our deep pasts there is the writing 'could do better' scrawled across the history of the organisation.

I guess time will tell.

Tha Art of the Ideogram in Remote Viewing

The Art of the Ideogram.

The Ideogram is a cornerstone of the CRV (Controlled Remote Viewing) methodology created by Ingo Swann (Circa 1979-1988) as a consultant for SRI. The Ideogram has also been adopted by the following mutated forms of CRV but at times it’s been given less of a prominence in these later methodologies.

Firstly what is an Ideogram?
Simply put - An ideogram is a pictorial representation of an idea or concept.

For example:

This drawn symbol or shape is now commonly known to represent infinity. It cant possibly show everything that a concept like infinity means - but its shape and form represents the concept of infinity.

In CRV, the Ideogram represents an instantaneous reflex capture of the remote viewing target in picture form. A pictorial summary of the target.

The Ideogram takes the form of a reflex action with no drive form the conscious mind as it skips across the pages at a lightening pace. The Ideogram is then lightly probed to extract its ‘feeling’ its ‘form’ and its sensory impressions.

In essence in the many years of doing ideograms they have become known to me as an object of beauty, an art form, an expression of the entire target and every single bit of data, captured within a sweep on the pen.

Each and every single ideogram is different and although some have common features like straight or intersecting lines representing structures, most ideograms have that like bit extra, a subtlety that radiates the needed information. The key is to ta
ke the time to respect, explore and decode the ideogram properly. I’ve seen student want to skip this target of the remote viewing process in their willingness to sketch or delve into the depths of a target, yet it’s all here wrapped up in a beautiful, purely creative and personal expression of the target.

Over the years I have come to see ideograms as single works of art - a pure unaltered expression of the remote target, untouched by noise as it momentarily explodes form the creative mind on to the paper and dissipates in a nano-second
. I can look back on a remote viewing session containing multiple layered ideograms and with the hindsight of feedback - I see mapped in the swirling lines and unconsciously created ‘art’ a map of the target laid bare, waiting to be probed and discovered. Lying within the ideogram is a creative language stronger and more intense than any language of words.

A Recent example:

This is an ideogram recently created in a remote viewing project for a missing person.

At the point where the random target number ended you can see the creative explosion of information travel through me, into the pen and then on to the paper. You can trace the flow of the pen in the great arcing swirls and downwards as it records a life form, labelled [a.].

Then it skips across the page wanting to impart more information, which it does in a secondary explosion of sweeps and swirls reaching across the white void. This second Ideogram is labelled [b.] and when probed it indicates the confused, heavy, stifling, busy, mental condition of the target life form. This is a nano-second of creative expression, detailing a complex mental condition involving depression and sever confusion. On probing I can sense this, see it and feels it, a cloudy puffiness that takes over all.

The creative side of me sees this Ideogram as a thing of beauty a swirling form of energy as if reaching out across the pages with a story to tell.

It turns out the Missing person is a male with a severe mental condition who is prone to episodes of confusion, and who is still missing, presumed dead.

For the practitioners out there - remember to take your time and have fun with the Ideogram part of the process, it’s the creative side of you expressing the target in ‘your’ personal language. It also shows that behind all the acronyms and words that remote viewing IS an artistic process and that your Ideograms, sketches and even your pages of information are like little galleries filed with works of art., your art, learn to love and respect them.

For those methodologies or practitioners that have bypassed or relegated the Ideogram to a secondary position in your process - you need to re-evaluate this, go back and give it another try, look deep into the action and expression that explodes form both the target and from within in each of these little artworks.

All the best...

Remote Viewing the Nina Reiser murder

Remote Viewing the Nina Reiser murder

As one of the remote viewers who worked this project I would like to share this final report with you (I did not author this report).

This is a story about the disappearance of the mother of two young children, in Oakland, California, a city of 420,000 people, across the Bay from San Francisco. Oakland is known for many things – sharing the Bay Area with San Francisco, its exceptionally sunny weather, its vibrant multi-ethnic mix, its professional sports teams - the Raiders and the A's - and for its very high murder rate. It is not known for the disappearance of mothers in the Oakland hills.

The main thrust of this report is to follow the history of the disappearance of this young woman named Nina Reiser, including the efforts to find her, both conventional and with remote viewing, the trial that resulted, and the surprising aftermath.

We will present the story as it developed. You will see the deployment of remote viewing by a professional team and get a good sense of how a remote viewing project unfolds. Both verbal and graphic data from remote viewing sessions will be included. We will present the large amount of relevant data that a team can produce while not consciously knowing what the objective (or target) is. We will also show some of the challenges such a project faces and difficulties that arise as the remote viewing data is received by the project manager. We will include the considerable amount we got right, and an important facet that we got wrong.

This report shows the blind remote viewing work of a small dedicated team of remote viewers and an outside dowser as they try to piece together this complex missing person case, that has now transformed into a murder and recovery case. The remote viewers work together using differing methods and styles and are located all over the world.

All the best...

Simulating the universe - my theory on the Remote viewing mechanism

How the magic happens.

I sit here in a fairly blank room at a desk waiting for the world around me to collapse inwards and the target to reveal itself. Each breath deepens my withdraw from the physical world as I slip into my cool down meditation.

I’m nearly there now – everything feels distant, the sound of children playing in the street outside muffles into the background, the feeling in my arms and legs fades and starts to leave me without form, this is when I know I’m ready to remote view and I can almost feel the target pulling and tugging at an elastic connection where my third eye should be – the target is ready to be explored.

The target for today in half way around the world from me, 3,000 miles away to be more exact. We are remote viewers and not superman we don’t actually zip across 3000 miles of time and space to the physical target and touch it with transparent fingers caressing it to find its sensory details, But sitting here in my room I can access imprinted data about that remote place in tiny ripple like waves of impressions. This information about the target is all around us and available to all of us.

The good news.

Science is finally catching up with the seer. Quantum physics and theories like the holographic universe theory, now present a scenario where remote viewing and psychic become normal traits of a world where everything is connected in time and space. Everything in the universe and beyond is connected. A non physical web of non local interconnectedness carries information to and from the far reaches of space as and when they are called by our thoughts and our intentions.

So here I am, relaxed, ready, and with the mere action of thought – whoosh I am instantaneously immersed in a pool of information about my request, the target.

This is where I must clarify, we don’t actually go to the target, but as we have access to all information about the target. Parts of the brain, including Mirror Neurons try to sympathise with the target and using our collected life experiences and memories to date we build a simulation of the target in our minds piece by piece.

“The human brain has multiple mirror neuron systems that specialize in carrying out and understanding not just the actions of others but their intentions, the social meaning of their behaviour and their emotions. Mirror neurons allow us to grasp the minds of others not through conceptual reasoning but through direct simulation. By feeling, not by thinking."1

Also that gut feeling you have, the intuitive one that steers you in the right direction – mirror neurons. These have now been found surrounding the heart tissue. 40,000 of them directly communicating with the brain – this is called ‘the little brain in the heart’ and these neurons seem capable of short and long term memory

Now the bad news.

Yes everything is connected ad we can as humans, chill out and drop ourselves into a living expanding Internet of data. The problem is we all crave full broadband speed and quality – streaming full screen video like data with sound, yet we don’t yet have an internal broadband modem and the data tries to stream through to us from the target in spits and spurts form a much smaller connection – not unlike one of the first modems at speeds of 14,00kbps.

Yes we have access to any and all the information in the universe – the downside is the present connection can only accommodate something like these old Internet modems (4kb per second). For those of you non technical a standard website image 6cm by 6cm will be anything from 10 - 60kbs. This interprets to 3 – 18 seconds to fully build the picture. Because the data pipe is so limited the image or in our case target information has to come down in small parts , chunks or clusters of data. We then have to recompile the separated small parts of data at our end to recreate the image of the target. That’s OK we at least have a connection. We may have to wait longer and work a little more to build our final pictures but it’s a connection after all. Just work with what you’ve got.

Back to the remote viewing or simulating the target.

I’m sat there pen on paper initiating contact by the mere thought of the target. Bang it’s there – In an instant a snapshot of the target has been communicated. It was fast, really fast, like an inserted 1 frame subliminal image in a movie, I saw it but didn’t really see it – this was a gestalt or in internet/broadband terms a preview image – a small glimpse of the real thing, just enough to get a sense of something – colour, shape of general form. This I record with gusto using the ingenious ideogramatic language I have now adopted as my own. This you can see as my hand possessed of its own actions speeds across the page creating beautiful arcs and forms as it moves to interpret this instantaneous snapshot of the target into a swirl of lines.

I move on through the acclimatising stages of a learnt RV method approach to remote viewing. Each stage building the intensity of the data by pure weight of accumulated data. In the mid stages of the learnt method, the singular pieces of data start to come faster and in clusters of two or more impressions when I key myself by saying ‘what doe the target feel like when I touch it’;

‘Cold, hard, solid, angled’

You see I’m not actually touching the real target, but form the interconnectedness we have to all things I know what it would be like if I did touch it and from inside of me memories of me touching something like the target are called into play and used in the simulation. The whole act of remote viewing is building a simulation of the ‘actual’ remote target from past experiences. The mirror neurons see the snapshot of data and try to mirror or mimic this target data with our remembered and stored experiences. These Mirror neurons which could be our key or the root to being psychic could also be part of our downfall in remote viewing (more later).

Creating or simulating scenarios using mirror neurons is a normal everyday activity for us all, we all sit there and think/create a scenarios in our minds of what might unfold as we prepare dinner later that evening, or what might occur in the forthcoming business meeting. Our minds construct and play out the scenarios thousands of times a day, all using stored experiences and memories to predict an outcome or remote view a future event in our lives.

Anyway back to the viewing….

Like the old days of the Internet parts of my internal processes wait and watch as an image of the target stats to form in the deep places of my mind. Line by line, piece by piece like the old interlaced images on the Internet, the target image slowly and randomly reveals itself and indistinct parts of it start to make sense in the chaos of the emerging image.

Then more data clusters come through;

‘Tall, linear, red, structure’

My mind grapples with this information – somewhere in my internal memory, items are searched and a match is made to the data. But this isn’t an exact match. The mind is seriously trying to copy, mimic and simulate this target and the only tall, red, linear structure I have experienced is the Eiffel tower.

Before I know it this semi fitting piece of simulated data is inserted into my picture and simulation. I know as a feel ling from my internal snapshot that is developing of the target, that it’s not quite right – there nothing big enough for the Eiffel Tower to fit in to here – no other data seems to match it. So I can if I catch it right, I mark it as an AOL (Analytical overlay) – a guess but one that does hold some correct information about the target.

This is the problem or flaw with remote viewing. The mirror neurons are prone to adding to the simulation of the actual target data that is a very close match but not a 100% match I personally feel that this is due to the desire of the viewer to want to get the target named, once it’s named it feels more real and physical. This desire over time can be overcome and trained out by the viewer and the need to have the final naming recedes allowing for AOL’s to be less and also less harmful.

In a nutshell –the universe is all connected which means we can know anything about everything anywhere. When we think or active our intent towards a target this then stimulates the Mirror neurons to mimic and create a simulation of the target .Using our learnt and remembered experiences, a picture of the target is simulated at a distance. If we don’t have all the correct experiences sometime the next best memory/experience we have is used in the simulation which causes AOL or small errors.

So there you have it, after ten years of doing it every week these are my present thoughts on the remote viewing mechanisms - Given this I also have some thoughts on improving your remote viewing and or Remote viewing in general;

Games – computer games where you play in computer simulated worlds I feel enhance the development of remote viewing. The mind after a time gets used to creating 3D simulated environments. Ask any gamer who has played a map for a hour – in their mind they can in 3D move around and simulate that map and act out scenarios.

Experiences – Remote viewing and probably ALL psi abilities are linked to learnt experiences. We bring to the table what we have learnt in life. This is why we are always better at remote viewing targets we have actually been to and experienced in real life – the data is always richer and more positive form these. This is not just my personal experiences but has been noted time and time again. This is because the simulation is using data that is a 100% match to recreate the simulation by the mirror neurons.

So to be a better remote viewer experience and observe more. It’s another reason why feedback is so important to remote viewing – feedback allows data to be recognised and stored as experiences for you to use again. So go out into the world and touch more objects, feel and observe the textures and the sensations. Build that library of experiences especially the sensory experiences.

Words – learn more – the more ways you can express, simulate the data that is crying out to you the more accurate you will be with remote viewing and simulating the target. Expand you vocabulary and you expand your remote viewing capabilities.

Finding the best remote viewers – this process might be best determined by finding the people who have the bigger/better Mirror neuron systems. Coincidentally there are I would say more men remote viewers than women there may be a good reason for this. Men are very visual they like to watch things. Of course this is one of the reasons why porn is so prevalent. But mirror neurons maybe at play here as well.

“In yet another realm, mirror neurons are powerfully activated by pornography, several scientists said. For example, when a man watches another man have sexual intercourse with a woman, the observer's mirror neurons spring into action. The vicarious thrill of watching sex, it turns out, is not so vicarious after all.”*1

Maybe there are more male remote viewer not because of porn, but because men are generally more visual – who knows but its food for thought.

Remote viewing - The UFO extraterrestrial problem (excerpts)

Looking thru my many archive boxes in the attic which contain thousands of pages of remote viewing sessions and just about anything I could find online about the subject circa 1996 to present day, I came across this insightful article form the jedi master of RV himself Ingo Swann. This article resonates with me in a time whereby we still have no answers to the abduction and UFO riddle and yet we the practitioners of RV could find the solution just like Ingo describes - the only catch getting a qualified group of remote viewers to actaully work togther on it.

The UFO extraterrestrial problem (excerpts)
By Ingo Swann.

Anyone who has been keeping up with UFO and ET-abduction news during the last 30 years must realize that Earthlings have a problem that is increasing in scope and meaning. It goes far beyond the exciting technological possibilities hinted at by UFO hardware and the allegedly "advanced intelligence" of beings who create and fly it.

As UFO-ET abductee evidence increasingly shows, we Earthlings are being sexually farmed and harvested, without our cooperation, for our genetic materials and for purposes that are completely obscured by the ETs, and which must be considered ominous.

We Earthlings have surrounded this dreadful activity with cultural avoidance, scientific skepticism, giggles, argumentation, divisive speculation among UFO researchers, wholesale media debunking, and apparently with deliberate government disinformation. There is nothing wholesome about ET activity or about our confused responses to it.

When UFOs inhabit our sky, confuse radar, and cause government concern, and thousands are abducted by ETs, we definitely have a UFO-ET problem. [But] we have not defined the problem per se. Many are uncertain that we even have a problem, and until the nature of the real problem is established, many can ignore UFO-ET issues altogether.

The problem does not reduce to human terms. UFOs and ETs must be understood on their own terms... The situation, as managed and mismanaged so far, fails to uncover the one common denominator that we and the ETs have (besides their interest in our genetic materials.)

All abductees and many who have sighted UFOs insist that ETs communicate with them by telepathy, via an outright, undeniably psychic method.

Using an outmoded description of telepathy, they are the psychic senders while we are the psychic receivers. This form of communication makes it patently clear that they possess psychic abilities and communicate to us through ours.

The ETs psychically "read" or "scan" human mind contents, and abductees report their own awareness of this. Psychic communicating and scanning is reported in all abductee stories. Yet human UFO-ET researchers have not followed up on it. Researchers avoid the psychic issues altogether, and few of them are willing to become involved with psychic research. Mainstream resistance to their mission is difficult enough without incorporating psychic research, the other topic which the mainstream resists vigorously.

If abductee evidence is accepted, however, as it increasingly is, then we also have to begin accepting its overt psychic foundations. The ETs communicate with us psychically. They could not do so unless we too possess a psychic substructure through which the communication can take place. We have a common psychic denominator, and it seems strange that I should be the first to make an issue of it, because it has been identifiable since the Betty and Barney Hill abduction in 1961.

We are on the undeveloped end of the matter. This is largely our own fault because our mainstream societies, religions, and sciences are unalterably opposed to psychic research and psychic development and have taken very active social measures to suppress them. Considering this active social suppression, something very ominous rears its head vis-a-vis ET psychicness and human psychic suppression throughout history.

If they possess developed psychic capabilities and we undeveloped ones, it is feasible to assume that, if we developed ours, we could achieve some measure of penetration into ET motives, activities, and purposes. It is clear they will continue to have immeasurable psychic and real advantages over us as long as we do not develop psychic capabilities and permit the issue to be completely ignored.

It should be clear to us that they are not eager for us to develop psychically enough to enable us to psychically assess them. It is possible to deduce that the reason psychic research is resisted and debunked in our societies may originate with them and not with us. We as a species may have been mind-entrained by them to attack and destroy our own psychic capacities.

"Telepathic communication" is the one single common denominator of all contactee and abductee experiences. This telepath is two-way: from the ET, or their androids, to humans; and since ETs know what humans are thinking, from us to the ETs. Why then do some researchers stand in awe of ET psychic powers but laugh when our own psychic potentials are suggested to them?

We could at least try to meet psychic power with psychic power. For example, a hundred people who have successfully demonstrated psychic abilities could be asked to focus on the UFO-ET problem and build up a psychically-acquired information pool. The results and conclusions of this pool would place us in a mess no worse than the one surrounding the UFO-ET situation today. Some new, if unorthodox, insights into the problem might emerge.

Some time ago, I wondered how many people have had intuitions or psychic perceptions of UFOs and ETs beyond those reported by abductees. I have had some, but 20 years of psychic experience has confirmed that better overall pictures are obtained by correlating many psychic inputs. The average man or woman could easily provide significant clues when those clues are integrated into a larger scenario.

Experience has also taught me that many people are reluctant to contribute psy impressions because of potential ridicule, or because they feel the matter should be left to psychics or established researchers. Come on, people, we are being kidnapped and genetically farmed, and the next abductees may be you or your children. A larger ET picture is being built up by them. We need to penetrate the ET scenario before it is too late. This is no longer a matter of parapsychologists, debunkers, skeptics, scientists, media slapstick, and so on. We need to go to work psychically no matter who we are.
