The Outer Limits of Belief

For most people, Remote Viewing challenges the limits of belief  What other subjects stretch our ability to accept extraordinary claims, even when evidence is strong, data is good and credentials are excellent?   Look at the following subjects and references:

Reincarnation:  Ian Stevenson, PhD: Children Who Remember Previous Lives: A Question of Reincarnation (revised edition).  and Jim Tucker, PhD: Life Before Life: A Scientific Investigation of Children’s Memories of Previous Lives. One of the most interesting cases is: The James Linegar story: see on YouTube.

UFO’s: See these documentaries:  Out of the Blue and The Unacknowledged. Also, Navy Piolet David Fravor, YouTube.

Astrology: Rick Tarnas, PhD: Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View, 2006.

TelepathyEntangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum RealityDean Radin, PhD.

I feel my sense of boundaries and beliefs perturbed by these accounts, yet the disturbance is within the part of myself that contains collective concensus beliefs: this is fascinating. Morphogenic fields that incline one to believe and think, as the population that surrounds oneself?

Remote Viewing: Fact or Fantasy?

Clairvoyance has been recognized as a perceptual channel of awareness, which some people, in the course of their lives experience periodically, or sometimes  frequently. Today this ability has been researched extensively, and is re-named, Remote Viewing.

In my book, A Guide to Luminous Places, I suggest that one variety of the experience of Heaven is exactly this: Remote Viewing, in full color, fine detail and as a 360 panorama of innumerable vistas and views, dimensions within, that have been referred to by cultures worldwide and throughout recorded history. Today, for most people this fantastic channel of awareness is only hinted at by myth, legend, art, and written sacred texts; yet is rarely experienced, why should this be?

The channel of inner Remote Viewing has been established as very probable, by research scientists Russell Targ (Limitless Mind: A Guide to Remote Viewing and Transformation of Consciousness, 2004) and with Harold Putoff, PhD (Mind Reach, 1976). Also, former US military Intelligence personal: Lyn Buchanon, Joseph McMoneagle and Paul H. Smith have written books about their methods and experiences with Remote Viewing; be sure to see their YouTube presentations.

Most modern people today find these findings incredible, almost to the point where they might say, ” I would not believe it even if it were true”.  It is like the response to the phenomena of Quantum entanglement (Quantum Physics): it just seems impossible. Wikipedia presents many of the criticisms and possible flaws in Remote Viewing research protocol, and this appears to support the consensus reality, as believed by most modern people.

I believe that our collective (subconscious) consensus, concerning the nature of reality exists as a cultural morphic field (Rupert Sheldrake, PhD: The Presence of the Past: morphic resonance and the habits of nature: chapt. 14 The Fields of Human Societies and Cultures – Group Minds.1988. Also, see:The Sense of Being Stared At: and Other Aspects of the Extended Mind, 2003) and it conditions each person living within its boundaries toward a personal inclination to believe as the majority do, it compels this within its territory. Leaving the territory, to another country or land (the remote Amazon, or Himalayas, etc.) and the story – program will fade or change. Isolation in remote wilderness locations can accomplish this easement toward another point of view, and a different experience about the limits of reality.

Many people have had the experience of remote viewing, especially in dreams and hypnogogic moments between waking and sleep. Yet few people have the financial means, or time, to go out and verify their perceptions.  Upon occasion, precognitive remote viewing while dreaming can provide real time environmental feedback, confirming that this channel of awareness does occur, unpredictably, for many people at some time in their lives.

The Range of Light

Myron Stolarhoff lived near Lone Pine and enjoyed frequent hikes and backpack trips into the Range of Light, named by John Muir.

Another fascinating person, Franklin Merrill Wolf, also a Stanford graduate, lived in the same area, and extensively explored inner states of consciousness without the use of psychedelic drugs. He wrote two books: Pathways Through to Space, and Consciousness without An Object. These books are classics in the field of consciousness research. Franklin, his wife, and community members hiked into the Range of Light, and they developed meditation sites in the mountains near their homes.

The Range of Light (YouTube), the Whitney Mountain Range, and the area above Lone Pine is extremely rich in atmospheric air ions (AAI), also called negative air ions (NAI), or what I prefer to call energetic air. This very high level of energetic air is due to the naturally occurring radioactive elements uranium, radium and radon – which are exposed by the mountains. Cosmic rays from outer space is an additional source of energetic air (via muons) , and it is a very significant at higher elevations; the weather in this region usually provides cool temperatures plus low humidity that extends the brief lifetime of energetic air.

“There is a light that glows continuously in the universe. It is eternal, ever-present, and unending. This light is the source of life. It can be for each of us the source of joy, wellbeing, aliveness, in fact that which makes everything in life charged with exuberance and gratitude at the miracle of being. We can be filled with wonder and excitement at participating in the enormous adventure of life. This light is infinitely expressive, constantly seeking ways to manifest in ever-unfolding, ever-increasing varieties of expression. We, humankind, have the opportunity to be the channel for the expression of this light. As the most developed creatures on the planet, we have been granted attributes which permit us to unite our inner self with this indescribably beautiful light, to be an expression of this energy, and to share in the joy and delight of the unfolding processes of Life.”     Myron Stolaroff                                                         Thanatos to Eros: 35 Years of Psychedelic Exploration, 1994.

Myron was a friend of my father, Charles Adams.: he was with PR, and it was his job to know people and be friendly. In the 1960’s, they were associates at Ampex,  Redwood City, California.

Energetic Air and Health

Negative Ions – How Do Neg Ions Influence Our Health?   Listen to this YouTube- podcast!

Summary of: The Biological Impact of Small Air Ions:  Dr. Albert Krueger.

Neg Ions, negative air ions, negative small air ions of oxygen:  these are all names for the same thing, which I prefer to call energetic air. The energetic element in air is oxygen: it can receive energy from muons –  galactic and solar cosmic rays, alpha particles – radon; electrostatic fields (as with electrostatic type air ionizers); rain drops, waterfall spray, and ocean spray from crashing waves (the Lenard Effect).

In the 1980,s there were quite a few air ionizers on the market, including Radio Shack. Now, most are gone. Why? Many people are not aware of any effects from these devices and others do not notice significant changes in how they feel or think. Honeywell offers one or more models, and there are several others listed by Google and Amazon. I believe these devices are worth trying, not just one model, but at least several. In an enclosed space, such as  bedroom, small office, or car the levels of energetic air generated by this technology can be useful and effective.

The big problem is you cannot ionize, effectively, many indoor atmospheres when there is excess dust, dander, humidity, and the 1000’s of possible synthetic molecules that out gas and slowly disintegrate continuously from all materials.

Nature can only maintain negative air ions in certain environments, at certain times.
