Remote Viewing Institute Issues Grave Call to Mainstream Science

Emory Mort reports for Reality Sandwich:

The Farsight Institute, a non-profit organization focused on the scientific application of remote viewing, recently released a challenge to mainstream science: organize a tightly controlled, publicly viewable scientific display of the phenomenon of remote viewing in return for mainstream recognition of the validity of the phenomenon itself. And do it in the narrowing window of a vanishing 2012 timescape.

Dr. Courtney Brown, an Atlanta-based professor who directs the Institute, has spearheaded the development of a novel Prometheus Protocol for conducting scientific Remote Viewing experiments. He uses multiple world-class, military-grade remote viewers in sophisticated ways that are able to be, and have been, followed and verified by the public. Brown is urgently requesting the attention of the mainstream science community, which lags behind the findings of some pioneering exploratory scientists…

    Not dubious sounding at all…nope totally must be right because they can see THROUGHHHH TIMMMEEEEEE

    Isn’t this stuff some sort of extension from empathy? like telepathic communciation?

    • Jin The Ninja

      i think so, yes. but it’s been infinitely catagorised, re-catagorised and seperated from other forms of psychic phenomena.

  • feint_ruled

    These guys don’t seem to get it – the onus is on them to design the experiment, then submit the results for peer review.  Having said that, sounds like the JREF would do what they want, is that million dollars still up for grabs?

    • Monkey See Monkey Do

      They already have designed the experiment and collected the results. They want to do a public screening. Read the article.

      • feint_ruled

         I don’t think the article is clear on that at all. Anyway, I followed the links to their website and this is the sort of thing they have under “public experiments”

        I’m not seeing much scientific rigour there!

        • Monkey See Monkey Do

          So many institutes have called for public screenings that they should at least have the oppurtunity to be falsified.

          Many institutes do value academia and the scientific method aswell. This institute has a good rep. http://noetic.org/

    What utter bullshit. The burden of proof is on you assholes. Stop coming up with ridiculous excuses. 

  • Liam_McGonagle

    One of the neighborhood lads originally pursued his own studies in remote viewing to look at nekkid people.

    But it turns out there are some obscure laws that come into play here in Wisconsin, and one unforeseen consequence of this research was a black eye, a broken telescope and a restraining order. 

    Which is probably just as well, since this is Wisconsin, if you know what I mean.

    Remote viewing is only possible with strong, entheogenic drugs. 

    • Calypso_1

      Endogeny….weeeeee!

    • http://www.facebook.com/rthoneunomia.celine Threedinium

      Really? I found an old 1986 training manual yesterday (I think it’s military possibly) that doesn’t mention any entheogenic substances at all, merely outlines an extremely strict structure of practice to effectively develop the skills within a scientific context. I haven’t really attempted to try it as it emphasises the fact it’s not a stand-alone manual and is more about detailing the scientific methodology employed for posterity.

      I think the copyright is safe to upload, I’ll dig it out again in a while and link in.

     I challenge any of you sceptics to read up about it properly and then be quite so dismissive :-)

    • David Howe

       already did.

    “If select and important leaders of mainstream science recognize the reality of remote viewing, then we at The Farsight Institute will conduct a major and extended sequence of remote-viewing demonstrations that will satisfy nearly all people with respect to this reality.”

    Mainstream scientists like to see evidence *before* drawing conclusions. I know–fucked up, right?
