Remote viewing is defined as the ability to acquire accurate information about a distant or non-local place, person or event without using your physical senses or any other obvious means. It’s associated with the idea of clairvoyance, seemingly being able to spontaneously know something without actually knowing how you got the information. It is also sometimes called “anomalous cognition” or “second sight.” Many of us experience this from time to time as an intuitive flash of insight that turns out to be correct. Many well-known entrepreneurs and business people, like George Soros, Conrad Hilton, Thomas Alva Edison and Akio Morita, the co-founder of Sony, have attributed their business success to this ability. And we’ve all seen natural psychics perform seemingly amazing feats of mental skill on TV. The difference between natural psychic receptivity and remote viewing is that the latter is a trained skill, a controlled process, that the average person can learn to do, to some degree or another.
This ability seems to be distributed in the human population in varying degrees just like musical skill, some people are really good at playing an instrument, but almost everyone can hum or whistle a tune. Another way to look at Remote Viewing is that it is a method of tapping into the mind of the “Universal Consciousness” and transcending space and time to bring forth the unconscious and superconscious into the consciousness. This technique is also known as the controlled extrasensory perception to gain information or visuals from a subject who is not physically present. Using a set of technical rules, the remote viewer can learn how to perceive a target – a person, object or event – that is located distantly in space and time. It is said that a remote viewer can perceive a target in the past, present or future, located in the next room, across the country, around the world or theoretically, on another world or in another universe because time and space do not exist.
