Remote Viewing

I’m debating whether to participate in this experiment at the Laboratories for Fundamental Research in Palo, which explores “how your nervous system can automatically predict the future.” I’m fascinated/obsessed with the LFR’s Cognitive Sciences Laboratory, and their mission to understand & fully utilize anomalous mental phenomena such as remote viewing, clairvoyance, ESP, psychokinesis, consciousness, perception, etc. They’re one of only two labs in the US to seriously study anomalous mental phenomena, despite the “giggle factor” so prevalent among American scientists when it comes to parapsychology (meanwhile, other countries exploit anomalous mental phenomena thoroughly.)

I’m particularly intrigued by remote viewing, and from what I’ve researched, it can be quite successful not only for locating state secrets, but sometimes predicting the future and solving mysteries of the past. In fact, members of STARGATE (a now defunct top secret remote viewing operation) used to call notable successes “eight martini” results when remote viewing data was so mind-blowing, the team had head to a local bar to recover. Joseph McMoneagle, one of the most successful remote viewers compares remote viewing to baseball. He says no player will hit a homerun every single time, but when they do it’s worth all the training and hard work.

I’d love to be involved in CSL’s latest experiment, if only to meet a few of these scientists (or maybe a remote viewer!), but I’m not sure if I want to spend an hour being startled by loud noises. Think Dr. Venkman administering electrical shock in Ghostbusters.
