Exercise in Straightline Remote Sensing - Second Installment
If the mirror in the exercise of the first installment is being moved to another location, a picture may pop
up for the viewer, for example a vase.
What if there is no vase at the location where the mirror
was pointing? What if there was a horse standing at
that exact location? It seems that the result of the viewing
must have been wrong! Right?
False! Whatever the viewer sees, the viewer is seeing!
If the viewer sees something different from what other people
are seeing, then there are several possibilities to
explain this circumstance:
- a) The "other" people were grossly incorrect in their observation, or were intentionally trying to invalidate the viewer's perception;
- b) A "true" viewpoint of an existing object has been seen which was hidden from the other observers (cp. "The Blind Men and The Elephants" parable in PNOHTEFTU);
- c) The viewer saw the object(s) at the exact location, but it was in the past or in a future;
- d) The viewer saw the object(s) at the exact (concurrent) time and location, but in a Parallel Universe;
- e) The viewer saw the object(s) at the exact (concurrent) time and location, but the viewer selected a different domain of perception (explained in the next installment);
Any combination of above possibilities is thinkable, and does
occur in real life. One should also consider the following points, which are all accepted by "traditional" mainstream science:
- Each and every spectator changes the events currently unfolding, willingly or unwillingly, by just simply observing them.
This was first expressed by Heisenberg's observation, yielding his
famous "Uncertainty Principle." Most recently, CalTech's scientists
supposedly changed the characteristics of a laser beam over a distance, without any time delay involved. This feat, if real, is attributed
to the "entanglement phenomenon," a "spooky action at a distance" (Albert Einstein).
- If 10 people witness a car accident, there will be 10 DIFFERENT reports of what happened. Adding a remote viewer to the same will give an eleventh report.
- A tornado starts with a seemingly insignificant micro-event. The new science of Chaos Theory shows, in an astounding manner, how creations unfold from the nervous jitter of a single electron. The effect that may result from even a short and space-limited observation of a single person can have dramatic impact on the events to follow. In short, it "does" make a difference who else (other than the remote viewer) is looking at an event.
All this may even occur if the observation of the viewer was
totally correct to begin with (which is close to impossible
as it will be shown in the next installment of "Remote Sensing").
This means that the first order of business should be to gain the
confidence of accepting one's perception as what they are:
one's own perception.
Invalidation of one's perception is a severe aggression of one's
own integrity. Since invalidations have happened to a person
innumerable times in the past, it is a good idea to build up a
certain level of confidence before even beginning with remote
In any case, it is vital to figure out what may have happened
when a new invalidation occurred.
In addition to all this above, the viewer's observation may have
been distorted if:
- f) the viewer saw a picture in his/her own memory from the past;
- g) the viewer made up a picture instead of observing what's there (mockup)
- i) the viewer saw a picture that SOMEONE ELSE, at the same or a different time/space location, was seeing;
- j) the viewer perceived the memory of someone else;
- l) the viewer perceived the mockup of someone else;
- k) all of the above happened in a Parallel Universe;
- m) all of the above happened at a different domain of perception (see next installment).
After confidence in one's own perception has been restored to
an acceptable level, the factors f thru m must be minimized.
While remote viewing, itself, is of little interest for individual
liberation, per se, all of the above has very much to do with it.
It seems obvious that one should be able to look through and
be untouched by invalidations of any kind. And it also seems
essential that one becomes able to "see things as they are,"
or, since this is ultimately not possible, to at least come
closer to a clear perception of unfolding events.
Gotamo (the "Buddha") promoted the ancient techniques of
observations of things "as they are" as the most basic tool for
reaching spiritual liberation. "Looking through" (Pali: vi-passana)
is a practice that is finding, very fortunately, a much wider
audience these days.
Most remote viewing experiments will attempt to investigate a
pseudo-static event, such as the existence and modalities (color,
form, etc) of a vase in a room. These are pseudo-static events
that are error-prone because "reality" does not contain static
events-- everything is in a constant flux.
At the time of remote viewing, a person is in a heightened state
of awareness. In such a state, a person is dramatically
more inclined to view things in a way that is closer to "reality,"
but which is hidden to the "common" mind. The latter is, more
often than not, filtering existing perceptions to such a degree
that abstractions occur which may have nothing to do with the
actual observations of the person.
In the "Little Purple Notebook" (PNOHTEFTU), all exercises
emphasize viewing dynamic happenings in a continuous, rather than
literally jumping to conclusions.
For example, if the viewer sees a curved line, the perception
should follow the line in a continuous, uninterrupted way.
Let's say the line comes back to where the viewer started.
Instead of abstracting "this is a circle," the viewer is
encouraged to take the sequence of perceptions as they happened,
and to begin with exploring new avenues, based on the fixed
point of the curved line.
The successful learning of a new skill happens through repetitive
comparison of one's action with the emerging results.
Therefore, instead of jumping into the stars, it is necessary
to train one's skills of remote viewing in an environment
in which instant feedback and gratification is possible.
For this reason, the second exercise will still be carried
out in the vicinity of one's current body.
