It is well-known among remote viewers that double-blind methods in tasking the target to the viewer is important in order to prevent (among other things) telepathic overlay, which can result when the tasker or monitor unconsciously transmits mental data to the viewer in a way that can corrupt the session. Stanley Krippner provided data that this may be possible during research in the 1960s:

“16 male and female volunteer Ss were equally divided into two groups — hypnotized and relaxed. During hypnosis, or relaxation, telepathic communication of post card-size reproductions of famous art objects was attempted by staff personnel. Following this, all Ss napped or further rested. In both instances Ss recalled their imagery or dreams. Finally, both groups reported dream content one week after the attempted telepathy. Three judges rated the degree of individual correspondence between imagery and dream reports and the “target” pictures. Results suggest: (a) one person’s thoughts may find their way into another person’s imagery, and (b) hypnosis may speed up this “telepathic processing.” …


Although as far as I know, the method of counting is not articulated in the Pali Canon itself, subsequent Buddhist scholars and meditation teachers have found that it is a useful means of helping the easily distracted focus their thoughts. In his book Mindfulness in Plain English, Bhante Gunaratana explains that the purpose of counting is to help the mind focus solely on the breath. You can cease counting after your mind is sufficiently focused on the breath, and it is therefore a means to an end rather than an end in itself.

There are several methods of counting, although it is important that this counting is done silently and in the mind rather than verbally. One method of counting is be silently thinking “one, one, one, one” until the lungs are full. Then, while breathing out, count “two, two, two, two” until the lungs are empty. Repeat this pattern, gradually increasing by one. It is also possible to rapidly count to ten while breathing in and then rapidly count to ten again while breathing out. A variation of this involves counting up to five while inhaling and then counting up to six while exhaling. …


Failure to dissolve attachments to objects of desire and aversion that prove hindrances to Enlightenment are strengthened by failure to take seriously the reality that death, aging, illness and separation from what is dear to us are inevitable, and that the state of our kamma depends upon our understanding this reality. Nothing we love our hate will endure forever, and even if it does last much longer than we do, the termination of our current incarnation will render its endurance irrelevant to us. …

Air Marshal Sir Beresford Peter Torrington Horsley, KCB, CBE, LVO, AFC (25 March 1921–20 December 2001) was a senior Royal Air Force commander.

“I don’t care what people think — it was what happened. I would say they come from another planet somewhere in the universe but not in our galaxy. They are benign, not aggressive and, like us, are explorers” (Peter Horsley, on his alleged alien encounter)

Air Marshal Sir Beresford Peter Torrington Horsley enjoyed an impressive military career: He was an air-gunner for the Royal Air Force, pilot, flight instructor, and even the personal pilot of Major General Sir Miles Graham. After World War II, he was appointed Adjutant to the Oxford University Air Squadron in 1948. …

The Catalina Islands

Although many remote viewers are familiar with both the unusual activity surrounding what military remote viewers believe they have identified as underground alien bases at key hotspots (Mount Hayes, Mount Nyangani, and Mount Perdido), fewer are aware of remote viewing work that has been conducted on ET activity near the Catalina Islands, where, according to Preston Dennett, there may be an underwater alien base. …

Like the CIA and the DIA, the NSA was gravely concerned about the impact of psychic ability on national security. In 1981, they decided to look into exploring the possibility of mind control and wanted elite groups of highly gifted psychics but were afraid of “morbid people of talent” compromising their efforts. To remedy this, they wanted to construct a worldwide database of psychics (perhaps one of our own is lucky enough to be counted among those marked out!). …


I had an extremely intense “dream” that I am convinced could not have been a dream due to its realism and very unique and bizarre quality.

I am riding my bike with my friends and I tell them I have to go because “the greys are taking me to the dentist.” I don’t know if I literally told them this or if I had even been hanging out with friends at the time or if it’s just my mind constructing a scenario to make sense of something. …

Image from the 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film

When Lori Williams set out to explore her target, she had an immediate intuition that it was “Big Foot” or “Sasquatch,” and therefore marked it down as an analytic overlay. I really appreciate how she emphasizes that “Nouns tend to identify, rather than describe”; when remote viewing, we want conceptually low-level, concrete data that describes, not abstract or conceptually high-level data that identifies. She describes a very tall, furry, brown humanoid that is smelly, dirty, bipedal, ugly, has large teeth and long arms and legs. …

Mt. Shasta, California’s highest volcano

Mt. Shasta, California’s highest volcano, has been seen as a spiritual and paranormal epicenter for a while, popularized in the Western consciousness with the help of books like Frederick Spencer Oliver’s A Dweller on Two Planets, which claims that survivors from the sunken continent of Lemuria have made Mt. Shasta their home. He speaks of a complex of tunnels underneath the mountains and of individuals occasionally surfacing in white robes. …
