Remote Viewing & the Possibilities of Consciousness
This is a small section taken from Rick Collingwood's book Go Deeper entitled 'It's all in the Mind'.
Reality vs Consciousness
Reality is constructed by consciously observed perceptions within third dimensional time space and matter. Whenout-of-body explorers claim that they passed through solid walls during their experiences, they are contradicting perhaps the most fundamental perceptions of human observers. Science condemns such assertions as either fraudulent or hallucinatory because if they were accepted as legitimate, our entire conception of reality would collapse – an appalling prospect, challenging the credibility of science, religion, the churches and all self-appointed observers.
Time is a dimension, though not a spatial one. It is a necessary extension to our awareness of space, and so we usually describe our reality as three dimensions of space plus one dimension of time, the so-called 'our-dimensional space-time continuum' Four-dimensional space, on the other hand, though mathematically describable, is a concept virtually impossible to visualize.
Key Books on Remote Viewing
Some of the scientifically proven capabilities of human consciousness can be investigated further in any of three books. Lyn Buchanan who was a remote viewer operative in the US Army and for the DIA penned the first book, 'The Seventh Sense'. This book is accurate and informative about the history and mechanisms of Remote Viewing. The second book, 'Psychic Warrior', was written by David Morehouse about his experiences with the US Military and the NSA during his involvement with the psychic spy programs, some of which were codenamed operations Stargate, Centre Lane, Sun Streak and Grill flame. The book is titled 'Remote Viewers, the secret history of America’s psychic spies', and was written by Jim Schnabel, a freelance science writer. It is a fascinating, accurate and well-researched book.
Fort Meade military base in Maryland, USA, is one noted remote viewer establishment where operatives projected into what is termed “the ether” whilst conscious left brain activity (reasoning) functioning. Monitors sit with the remote viewers, giving instructions and taking notes on the often astoundingly accurate impressions reported back by the viewers.
A considerable amount of scientific research was documented on the methodology, accuracy and effectiveness of these sessions, at the Stanford Research Institute, whose web address is printed later in this chapter for further exploration. Because there are too many variables within third dimensional existence to ensure that the future is fixed in the present, the name 'Probable Futures' was assigned to what is viewed of perceived future events.
Some interesting quotes in Schnabel’s book…
- A part-time Christmas-tree salesman remote-viewed his way into the heart of a super-secret National Security Agency installation buried deep in the West Virginia Mountains.
- The same psychic described previously unknown details of a high-tech Soviet military research facility, details that were later confirmed by satellite.
- A bizarre wave of paranormal visions haunted a group of scientists and physicists doing psychic research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
- A woman in Ohio psychically found the location of a crashed Soviet bomber in the jungles of Zaire, helping a CIA team to recover the wreckage before the Soviets got there, and earning praise from the then US President, Jimmy Carter.
- An Army remote viewer was the first in the US intelligence community to describe the Soviet Union’s new Typhoon-class submarine, while it was still indoors under construction.
- “I never liked getting into debates with the skeptics, because if you didn't believe that remote viewing was real then you hadn't done your homework.” – Major-General Edmund R. Thompson, US Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, 1977-1981, Deputy Director for Management and Operations, DIA, 1982-84.
- “There were times when they wanted to push buttons and drop bombs on the basis of our information.” – Dr. Hal Puthoff, a former manager of the remote viewing program.
