In a classic
series of carefully controlled experiments at SRI International,
physicists Hal Puthoff and Russell Targ have shown that the human mind
can produce evidence of its ability to see at a distance, and also to
anticipate the future.
In their protocol one experimenter goes to a distant target, which
is selected randomly for him en route, and a subject in the laboratory
tries to describe the target scene, both orally and by sketching on
paper. The experimenter in the field uses a random number generator to
select one sealed envelope out of a group held by a controller
accompanying him. The selected envelope is then opened, and that target
becomes the target for the experiment. The targets are preselected with
rigorous protocol by a group not involved in the experiment.
In the experiment shown here, the target selected was a rather
unusually shaped playground merry-go-round, with handrails made of bent
pipes, as shown in the two photographs. The laboratory subject, in
addition to describing the scene verbally, made the sketches shown at
the right. As can be seen, the channel is noisy, but there is definitely
signal in it.
Puthoff and Targ also obtained some of the best experimental results
when the laboratory subject was asked to describe the scene which the
field team would see in the future, the target selection via random
number generator not yet having been made. A wide variety of subjects—including
persons hostile to parapsychology—were
used by Puthoff and Targ in their experiments, with good results.
Each particle of mass in our bodies represents one closure of the
entire universe—yielding a
holographic reality—and deeper
communication with ourselves is identical to communication with the
universe, including any part of it, at any distance. Furthermore, in
hyperspace the future and the past are all present. Since a particle
does indeed exhibit a four-dimensional component for 1/137 of the time,
each particle does connect to the future and to the past. With selective
tuning and kindling any part of the holographic reality is accessible.
However, because of the smallness of a single selective signal in the
midst of the totality, the channel is quite noisy. For this reason
skilled psychics—persons who have been
found to have a greater fidelity of selective tuning—can be expected to
produce better results than the normal person.
Puthoff and Targ's results have also been successfully
repeated by other experimenters.
