Remote viewing requires you to stay awake.
Not always. There are many different methods.
with Remote Viewing, you are never really leaving your body or sending your soul onto a different astral plane....instead with remote viewing, you are
trying to see all those different dimensions and places while fully concious and using your perception to formulate accurate description of what you
think your mind eye's is tapping into.
I agree that you never leave your body, but I'm not sure about the "sending your soul" part. The basic theory on why Remote Viewing is possible is
that there is an infinite conciousness that exists across the whole part universe, like a web (or more technically, a grid.) The idea goes that your
soul is actually separate and omnipresent, but you can tap into it and it conveys messages through your mind, but your mind likes to mess the signals
up quite a lot and it doesn't come through as clearly. At least from what I can remember. I am a bit rusty on the specifics.
It is also worth noting that in Astral Projection, you can "actually" go to the thing you are looking at and see it with your own eyes right in
front of you. An advanced APer can go to targets at will. Whereas RVers only see things in their mind and stay in one place.
In layman's terms, basically Remote Viewing is planned trip, while Astral Projection is an unplanned one.
Not the best wording. I would say the only "unplanned" Astral Projection is a spontanious out-of-body experience or a near-death experience. The
rest of the majority is people who are conciously trying and planning to project.
I suppose Remote Viewing could be unplanned as well, but it would be much easier to disregard than an unplanned OOBE. Just think of all the times
images or thoughts have popped into your head and you don't know where they're coming from...
