WOW lot's of post and I have to mention something I found very interesting.
Common theme is a simple shape: circle, square etc etc...
Whenever I start off a remote view my mind will cycle through common shapes. I am thinking this may be the initial stages...you've asked your brain
to comprehend something that really has no visual nothing to optically "see". So the brain tries to cycle through known objects.
I often disregard these initial shapes and request my "mind's eye" to add shadow, form, function, movement (if any). Scents and tactile features,
colours (not always apparent and often the images appear almost as negative images)
Moving past the initial cycling of known (familiar shapes) takes less than a nano-second I'm sure...the standard for RV practices is 3 minutes of
actual viewing and note taking. This is done a multiple of times increasing the time limits for each "viewing".
I have stated I don't follow the standard LOL and for the most part I don't. Issues with conformity I guess.
My point is I think if posters were to try to move past the common and most recognizable shapes they first see, they might start hitting on something
beyond, apples, oranges, hourglass shapes...
On day two or three...some recurrent shapes remained and I made notes of those in my pictures.
Seriously it had never been a conscious thought until now, that the common shapes "seen" or thought of immediately during a "view" or whatever you
want to call it...may be a simple initial stage.
I'd love for some posters to retry!! (more work for hank though HAHA), let the common images cycle through your mind - and then make a mental push
PAST them...after three minutes make notes or a quick drawing of what you "saw". If the initial shape seems to be recurrent...make a note of it...if
it expands into something with more detail - definitely make a note of it.!!
Sorry I just felt a need to remark on it. It was kind of significant for me personally seeing it in so many posts.
