What is Remote Viewing? A good question. Even ones that use the technique don't quite know how/why it purportedly works. Here's my information on
Remote viewing is a kind of extra sensory perception (ESP) for lack of other knowledge about what it is. It's the ability of remote viewers (RV'ers)
to locate and 'view' objects, locations, people and even possible to travel space & time with the technique.
Using a set of protocols (predefined rules), a remote viewer can perceive any target, any person, place or object in time and space and any distance
or time away. The target can be across town or across the world or across the universe and time and space are MEANINGLESS. A major difference from ESP
and remote viewing is that IT CAN BE LEARNED by virtually ANYONE with training and practice.
It was seriously looked at by the United States government in several top secret operations and programs. The following operations were undertaken to
study and/or utilize the advantages that remote viewing would obviously afford the users. Such as: Spying without the use of any tangible aviation or
satellite hardware, view any secret/unknown bases, enemy or otherwise and many other useful advantages.
The following were some of the known US mil operations names regarding RV, they involve
Stanford Research Institute (SRI)
Some of the prominent RV'ers
are Ingo Swann
, one of the founders of remote viewing, Ingo Swann is an artist recruited by the CIA
and SRI to conduct remote viewing and to further the techniques. From the WIKI:
Pat Price, one of the early remote viewers
Paul Smith, credited with authoring the CRV training manual
Russell Targ, cofounder of Stanford Research Institute's investigation
Joseph McMoneagle, one of the early remote viewers
Ed Dames, formerly associated with PSI TECH, Inc.
Courtney Brown, founder of the Farsight Institute
David Morehouse, remote viewer during Stargate program
David Marks, the critic of remote viewing

PRG (Stanford) would seal a target in an envelope. This envelope would be given to a group of people who would enter a car. Once they were in the car
the envelope would be opened and the target they were to drive to would be revealed.
They would then drive to the target and try to visually send an image back to Ingo. He would then try to pick up on the target and reveal what it was.
His success rate was incredible. It got to the point where he would tell the controller where the people were heading sometimes before they opened the
"I remember once when given co-ordinates on a world map he drew a perfect picture of the island which was the target." (David Garner, PRG,
And this story of Ingo's RV ability:
Prior to Swann's visit I arranged for access to a well-shielded magnetometer used in a quark-detection experiment in the Physics Department at
During our visit to this laboratory, sprung as a surprise to Swann, he appeared to perturb the operation of the magnetometer, located in a vault below
the floor of the building and shielded by mu-metal shielding, an aluminum container, copper shielding and a superconducting shield. As if to add
insult to injury, he then went on to "remote view" the interior of the apparatus, rendering by drawing a reasonable facsimile of its rather complex
(and heretofore unpublished) construction.
It was this latter feat that impressed me perhaps even more than the former, as it also eventually did representatives of the intelligence community.
I wrote up these observations and circulated it among my scientific colleagues in draft form of what was eventually published as part of a conference
Why/How Does Remote Viewing Work?
I don't think we have a definitive answer to this question as yet.
No one knows HOW remote viewing it works, only that it does work.
However some theories are presented. One is that it is related to quantum physics and the "Matrix Code". A user is somehow able to tap into the
UNIVERSAL MIND or matrix, a sort of universal warehouse of all knowledge.
