REMOTE VIEWING DEFINITION
"The acquisition and description, by mental means, of information blocked from ordinary perception by distance, shielding or time." (SRI-International Definition)
"Remote viewing is a novel perceptual discipline for gaining information not available to the ordinary physical senses. Used extensively by so-called "psychic spies" during the Cold War for classified military projects, it has a long history both as an intelligence gathering tool and as the subject of research and applications in the civilian world." (From the International Remote Viewing Association, http://www.irva.org )
I. IN-SESSION DATA COLLECTION AND INTEGRATION
Variations in physical perspective on the target. Scale integration. Connecting spatial elements. Maintaining spatial and temporal focus. Data versus Context versus Tasking Intent. Data integration versus Meme Complexes versus Noise. Viewer profile.
II. ANALYSIS AND GROUP INTERACTION ISSUES
Examples: The effect of client/tasker/monitor/analyst/other viewers on the RV session. Identifying probable telepathic overlay in post-session analysis. Entrainment and masking. Consensus analysis and other group tasking methods.
III. PROPOSED EXPERIMENTS AND THEORETICAL MODELING
Examples: Methods for evaluating the RV data. Creating abstract vocabularies. Identifying the direction of information flow. Simultaneous versus delayed intent alignment. Evidence for psycho-physiological entanglement. Metabolic and electromagnetic signatures of RV. Lifetime and strength of target contact. Masking of information.
What target-intrinsic properties increase its prominence in remote viewing, in addition to its Shannon entropy (May, 1994) - and why? How does a target's cultural/social significance correlate with its prominence in remote viewing and what does that tell us about possible "field resonance effects", as postulated by the Global Consciousness Project?
What is the basis of target specificity in nonlocal interactions, what is the threshold of "entanglement activation" and what determines the duration/strength of the connection between two or more points in such nonlocal networks?
Target "lock-in": is there an intuitive confirmation? What we know about subject-target resonance.
How is information coded nonlocally? How is it retrieved?
