TOPICS

What is the significance of electromagnetic signatures detected at the target in remote conscious interactions?  What can we learn from their time profiles - onset and decay time, plateau effects, etc? What about characteristic frequencies/ intensity ratios, or the sign of the energy - is there an actual non-dissipative energy transaction between sender and target, a length scale-specific, topological "remote metabolism" underlying all classes of remote mental interactions, as per Pitkanen? 

Are such signatures subject to constructive/destructive interference as a result of multiple operators' focus? Do they correlate with the length of intent application? Do they affect only the material target, or the surrounding space as well, as suggested by Tiller's experiments?  

Are there any correlations between sender and target electromagnetic signatures - frequencies, polarization, phase, etc? What are the implications of this electromagnetic signature on the physiology of living structures - for example, does it play any role in phenomena like Bigu,  or "super-efficient metabolism", as Prof. Roy has dubbed this qigong effect? How can we connect it with Gariaev's and Popp's models of endogenous coherent EM fields and their role in contextual, holographic genetic regulation? How can we adapt this EM signature effect to further develop Backster's work on inter-species communication, or to investigate the mechanism at work behind Germine's ERP effect?

What is the earliest physiological detector of psi information in the transduction pathway to conscious awareness? How do various structural and physiological responses (such as DNA/cell membrane/microtubular conformation, galvanic skin response, brain evoked potential and EEG) line up time-wise in anomalous perception tasks such as presentiment or telepathy? How central is the role of the brain in anomalous perception and what does that tell us about the mind/brain boundary?

What determines the direction of information flow in nonlocal interactions? For example - between healer and patient, between sick and diseased cell populations (with possible application to cancer research via Gariaev's notion of "contextual DNA reading"), or between various participants in remote viewing protocols? How can we distinguish between anomalous perturbation of a system and anomalous cognition applied to the selection of particular moments in order to tip the apparent distribution of random processes toward the intended outcome (see "Decision Augmentation Theory" by May and al.,1996)? In a very ingenious thought experiment (see "Time-reversed human experience: experimental evidence and implications"), Radin and Etter have proposed using a Markov chain approach to determine whether an apparent PK effect is in fact a forward-running process (anomalous perturbation) or one running backwards (pre-cognition). Can we adapt such methods to determine "the arrow of time" in other scenarios? Can we use standardized physical/biological models to measure a subject's "strength of intent" versus background noise/opposing intent? And how can we begin to evaluate a target system's susceptibility to retro-pk, or "causal inertia" (per Braud)?

Known effects on  biological systems;  biological structures as signal processors (cell membrane liquid crystals; microtubules, DNA and other biopolymers; the hydrogen-bonding of water) 

Modulators and characteristics: distance, shielding, feedback, directionality, reversibility

Multiple operator interactions

Measurable correlates 

Directionality and specificity: beyond the homeostatic paradigm; the role of imagery; experimental directions

Imprinting intent: the memory of water, phantom DNA, healing adjuncts and surrogates

Is there a "psi protocol"? What mindset and techniques are conducive to the enhancement of psi function, which are the modulating variables, and what is the range of success we can expect in the average population?

What is mental focus: relaxation versus concentration; how it may enhance psi function
"Syntactic rules" of guided visualization: are some techniques more effective than others? What is the ideal time profile (ie frequency, duration, local sidereal time) of application?
