Thanks for wasting our time telling us that you're not contributing to the thread, but I guess you wouldn't be taking such effort to post something
contrary if you weren't a little bit curious, like I was once.

i'm not going to try because you are telling me some numbers, how i could ever possibly begin to imagine where that envelope sits to try and see
inside of it, what i will do is think and what will come to me is what ever my mind thinks of when i think of the numbers/letters on the envelope
it's not remote viewing it's probably an agents test

No it's not remote viewing, but it's a blind target, set up with honest intentions, for people who honestly would like to give something like this a
shot. From what I understand about it, the meaningless numbers are completely meaningless and are the only way "in" to what you might see but don't
say anything in and of themselves.
They're just random numbers on the envelope holding the target. The more blind and impossible to "view" the better. You're not looking for
anything with your eyes, right, you're looking through your eyes not with them as Blake wrote.
I would love to see a deeper discussion about the possibilities of remote viewing, people's experiences with it, what makes it different than other
alternative means of getting information, what is similar, what works, what doesn't, what sorts of targets are worthwhile, what ones are a waste of
time. I figured if there are any open minded people out there they might possibly be here, on Skunk Works.
You could do so much with RV, you don't even need an image (even though these last two targets have been images, since that's just the way I decided
to do it). I could have just as easily written down "The Next President of the United States" of "A view on the surface of Venus" and to your
mind, at least so I've been told, it's just the same as an image.
So if I write "The next President of the United States" and somebody draws a picture of a tall dapper man with dark skin and thinks maybe it's an
actor they recognize, I would say that they're close to the target (assuming Obama wins the election), do you see what I mean? Even though I didn't
put a photo of somebody there, the mind's eye would pick out images and symbols, not the actual photo.
So if there's a photo in an envelope in a city far away of the Eiffel Tower and somebody Remote Views it, and ventures a guess like "I see a tall
tree, I smell metal, I see a child holding its parent's hand, it looks like a spider" well that's much closer to the symbolic mark compared to "I
see a dry desert, I taste ocean air, I see a turtle", right?
Okay a nude Bea Arthur is a real stretch to link to the Eiffel Tower, but hey I'm an optimist and never pretended to be objective, I think you have
way more latent ability for this sort of thing than you or I realize.
It's not a matter of trying very hard with your brain to see something, the harder you strain the harder it would be to see anything at all, you have
to be open minded and relaxed or you will scare away the little subtle feelings. I probably wouldn't be very good at it either at first. Fortunately
for me, I'm just the guy stuffing the envelope not putting his neck on the line and venturing a guess.
I think DogHead is brilliantly on the right road, posting the first thing that jumped into the mind, sneaking up on the subconscious mind before it
can withdraw from all the attention. Certainly this is more than simply a game, I think it's a very good starting point for discussion.
I suggest you take a guess and keep it to yourself if you're more comfortable doing that, but do check in for the answer to see how close you came,
who knows you might have the chops to be the next Ingo Swann and not even know it?
