What is Scientific Remote Viewing? The Farsight Institute defines it thusly: "Scientific Remote Viewing (SRV®) is a trainable mental procedure that can assist a person in obtaining accurate and detailed information from distant locations and across time. Simply, SRV is a controlled shifting of awareness that is performed in the normal waking state of consciousness. SRV uses the human nervous system in a way analogous to the way an astronomer uses a radio telescope. Using SRV, the human nervous system acts as a tuning device that connects us to an underlying field of nature through which knowledge of all things is possible." ~ http://farsight.org/SRV/whatis.html What SRV is NOT: SRV does NOT involve an out-of-body experience. SRV does NOT use hypnosis. SRV does NOT involve an altered state of consciousness. SRV is NOT channeling. ~ http://farsight.org/SRV/whatis.html You can find out more information about The Farsight Institute, projects they have done and see abbreviated videos of some of their remote viewing sessions online at URL: http://www.farsight.org My Personal Opinions: I enjoyed the book & movie versions of "The Men who Stare at Goats". However, the idea of remote viewing may not reach the levels of popularity it truly deserves due to efforts to discredit projects, studies and scientific data collected. When a project is properly committed to and follows procedural accountability guidelines it can be an outstanding experience. We play a little with the concept in our "What's in the Box?" thread. [found in the Games section] Some may choose to reject the idea out of hand, or remain skeptical of any number of variables with regard to Remote Viewing. I look forward to a healthy debate and discussion.
