The Physics of Remote Viewing

The Physics of Remote Viewing:

Human Test Particles at the Interface Between Mind and Matter


"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, )


Plain and simple, we do not understand how remote viewing works. What passes for the science of RV is a very elaborate set of empirical rules, many of them highly successful - forming various methodologies taught by individual RV schools. However, there is no consistent, comprehensive physical theory available to support these methodologies. We have very little insight into physiological or metabolic correlates of RV function, not to mention apparent interactions with physical targets and group interference effects.

It would appear that the only major research resource the RV community currently possesses is a large number of motivated, experienced and fundamentally curious human beings. Everyone who has taken up the practice of RV has more questions than answers about this extraordinary phenomenon. Everyone who is serious about the practice of RV is devoting many hours of intense work every week in order to maintain and improve their skill. And nearly everyone has, sooner or later, faced up to the frustrating paucity of RV research papers in the current scientific literature.

It is our belief that your questions, your curiosity and your serious commitment to this field can be put to immediate use toward the development of a real scientific model of RV. A century ago, Rene Warcollier and his experimental telepathy group laid the foundation on which remote viewing emerged several decades later - with nothing but pen, paper and hours of creative thinking in the way of "experimental equipment". There is no reason for which this pioneering research cannot be continued by today's generation of remote viewers. As the work posted on the HRVG website ( ) clearly demonstrates, such projects can easily be based on the collaboration of individuals from different corners of the world, working at their own pace and in their own environment: the only requirement is a clear understanding of the protocol and a willingness to share one's results with the rest of the community.
