Remote Viewing (R.V.) stems from the theory that it is possible for an unnamed mind faculty to correctly deduce accurate facts about the information that is impossible to acquire using conventional means. For example, the ability a person describing precisely the contents of a shipping container yet, in real life, the individual has never had any contact with ships of the harbor is remote Viewing.
While there is no doubt that a considerably high number of scholars consider R.V. as a close ally to psychic powers, influential state and federal agencies including and not limited to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Defense Ministry have gone on record for having utilized them to boost security measures. The objective of the study below is to highlight, discuss, and provide a real-life example of remote Viewing, its role in the CIA, Stargate Project as well as the fundamental steps in R.V. learning process. Below are additional facts.
Remote Viewing Definition
The concept of accurately acquiring a specific amount of data regarding an unknown subject is remote Viewing (R.V.). Psychological experts and behavioral gurus indicate that R.V. exists in everyone in the world. Renowned co-founder of Sony Akio Morita stated that R.V. is in every one of us. The only difference is that, like singing, other people in the world are outstanding in the skill. While others can learn the skill, others are born with it while most of us can go as far as humming a famous song by a popular artist.
The history of R.V. is traced back to the era of the Cold War. During this time, research indicates that the differences between the United States government of that time and that of the Soviets were silent engaging in endless psychological battles. As a result of wanting to combat the threat that each of them posed to the other, both parties decided to develop the R.V. as an official military training program. By the end of the 70s, the United States administration had already got hold of the technology vital in not only learning R.V. as an individual skill but also sure enough to use it in their military advantage.
The Role of Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in the History of R.V.
When R.V. was in its inception stages, psychic experts from SRI: Hal Putoff and Russell Turg engaged with Swann, their first R.V. subject. By the end of their test, Targ and Hal had ascertained that Swann had psychic powers because he could affect the temperature of a thermostat that was miles away from their location.
Remote Viewing Training
Steps involved in R.V. training
1. Choose Targets from a Wide Scope
Learning R.V. is possible since it is like any other skills. First, request a close friend or family member to choose 5 images cut from different newspapers or magazines. Keep in mind that all these images must base on real world aspects, to ease the likelihood of accurately stating the facts.
2. Ask the R.V. assistant to put the Pics in an envelope
Secondly, request the friend, family member, or R.V. assistant that is close to you at that time to put the images in an opaque envelope. Note that all images must face down during this process. Finally, ensure you view each of them slowly as you put them away.
3. Envision the First Target
The third major step is to create an impression about any of the images that you saw. The objective is to deduce imprints that might have been surrounding that environment at that time. For example, if the first site was about a child reaching out to grab a sock, try to recreate that scene and state was that the image has not captured.
4. Connect all Dots
When engaging in R.V., do not even for a second stop to doubt your impressions. The enemy of successful R.V. training is holding back from the flashes of ideas that you get at first when you recall an image.
5. Grab an Aerial View
The final step is to imagine floating in a serene and calm environment while you draw the final impressions. Ask for feedback from your friend and keep repeating the process until you master its basic techniques.
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Remote Viewing (R.V.)
As it may have already come out in the previous bit of this study, influential global organizations like the Intelligence Defense Agency coupled with the CIA initially used R.V. for boosting the efficiency of security strategies of the United States and the Soviet Union of that time. The R.V. in the CIA perspective is grouped into four major categories that each agent needs to be familiar with, before enrolling for the process. The four subjects are Post Session Analysis, Target Selection, R.V. Session, and finally, R.V. Session Preliminaries. Below are additional facts
· Target Selection
The CIA termed most R.V. projects are covert, creating the impression that should the information of the R.V. proceedings reach dangerous viewers, the state will decline any knowledge or association of the same.
· R.V. Session Preliminaries
The events that led to a specific R.V. session are crucial. They are used when ascertaining the reliability of the data collected by the end of the session. Preliminaries mean that the R.V. sessions need to be held in not only calm and peaceful situations but also favorable to the R.V. subject and assistant.
· The R.V. Session
The third category was the R.V. session itself. Vital skills to uphold during the session, such as integrity and accountability, were part of training in the CIA. The objective was to infiltrate all possible threats using as minimal as possible physical contact.
- Post Session Analysis
The final category of the R.V. project for the CIA was the outcome of the session. Researchers and other stakeholders needed to know everything there is about R.V. For example, short- and long-term health threats and socio-cultural interests. In other words, the CIA and other impressive security agencies in the world have at one point gone on record to state that some of their military success and prowess is owed to covert operations and projects like remote Viewing.
CIA Project Stargate
At the mention of Project Stargate, the first thing that crosses the mind of a reader or researcher out there is the famous U.K. psychic celebrity who could bend spoons using his mind. As news about this guy traveled all around the world, the CIA decided to hire Uri Geller, the spoon bender. The primary focus was to use the psychic powers of Uri to tell whether CIA agents can display telepathic patterns accurately. As such, project Scanate and Stargate were the code names that the CIA used to define the mission whose purpose was to prove that psychic powers are real, and that is possible to create a real-life picture about a different person or situation far away from the real thing.
This moment marked the inception of Project Stargate. When the U.S. government hired Uri to work in its secret military operations, word began going around about the advancement of project Stargate. In 1970, during the initial years of Project Stargate, renowned scientists and experts were proved to go on record stating that the technique had not scientific evidence, terming the whole concept as shady. However, with the passage of each second that the CIA got to increase its scope of knowledge about R.V, other superpowers like the Soviet Union and the United Kingdom felt like they were under the threat of a time bomb. For this reason, the U.S. government continued to use project Stargate for as long as two and a half decades. Conversely, the more life changes and socio-political interests keep changing; Project Stargate had to be canceled for the overall good of everyone in society.
In 1998, scientists from the SRI filed a motion to bury all contents of project Stargate. Due to the endless controversial issues that were raised continuously by concerned stakeholders not only in the U.S., project Stargate came to an inevitable end. However, in 2001, the U.K. government decided to take up the flame from where the U.S. government had left. Less than two years into the R.V. mission, the project was abandoned due to unfounded evidence. While history proves that both states set aside different projects involving psychic powers, evidence proves that both nations have been spending sums of money into paranormal activities. Voices in the streets have it that both states may have realized the dangers of running a scientifically baseless operation and deemed it fit to end the whole thing. Alternatively, another theory states that they might have denied all allegations in public, but secretly went on to further the research. The real thing is that there is usually more to life than what meets the average eyes. In a whole new twist of events, the United States government eventually exposed and terminated Uri Geller’s contract after he officially failed to bend a spoon in live television. The whole Project Stargate and the CIA topic is mostly cloudy, and most of all, no evidence left behind.
How to Lean Effective Remote Viewing Skills and Techniques
In the previous sections of this study, it came out clear that remote learning is like any other skill or technique that can be studied, mastered, and taught all over again. As such, while the CIA may have scrapped the overt operation out of its books. Nevertheless, the internet has a way of never forgetting. Several non-governmental organizations are still using supernatural powers and psychic abilities to help save the world from dangers that barely meet the typical critical public eye. Here are the tips to keep in mind when you want to learn R.V. skills and knowledge.
· Choose a Peaceful Location
Remote Viewing requires a great atmosphere in the sense of calm and quietness. Research proves that the results of the data collected during the sessions varied according to the intensity of the noise. In most cases, the noise that the subjects were subjected to before, during, and after the session. Benefits of selecting an idyllic site stretch far and wide including and not limited to safety, health as well as finance.
This technique may seem simple on paper, but the truth is that nothing has been any far from the real thing. R.V. requires calm and peace, which can be easily achieved through relaxation. Keeping the mind occupied with less threatening and engaging scenarios like a game of chess or checkers before the R.V. session can go a long way in helping the subject master ideal relaxation skills during the session.
· Clear the Mind
Even though it is scientifically impossible to clear the mind, try, and focus on one thing or none at all. Clearing the mind can be easy or hard, depending on the skill involved. For this task, try clearing the mind by exercising a 90-second Navy Seal breathing technique. It involves inhaling and exhaling softly for 90 seconds and breathing out widely after that.
· Choose a Focal Reference Point
To ensure that the impressions drawn during the session are more real-life relatable as imagined, you are expected to choose one final higher ground location. Here, you will list all imprints like before; the difference is that you will relate them with an aerial perspective of thinking. For example, if you were describing a bombing environment, make observations in the point of view of a survivor of the experiment.
· Write and Validate all Impressions
The final step is to record everything you see in a written record. This will be read to you once you are done with the session. Validate your impressions by accounting for each record.
Remote Viewing (R.V.) is as crazy and impossible to imagine as it sounds. However, if the voice of successful stories like Sony’s Aiko Morita history and the CIA secret covert operations are anything to go by, who can tell the dimensions of the truth? To this point in the study, it is already clear that remote Viewing is far more intense than it seems on paper. We live in a world of strange happenings, well, what else is new?
