Ever since I began posting information about remote viewing on my site, more and more people have been asking about what it is and how it works. At first, I thought this would be a simple topic to write; however, I began to realize that there is a lot of information presented that might not be easy to grasp. In this article, I am going to provide a simple overview of remote viewing and, generally, how it works. This way, readers will have a cursory knowledge of this interesting technology as a basis for further reading and research.
--- What is remote viewing? ---
People tend to confuse remote viewing with psychic abilities. Indeed, they do seem similar in their results, but remote viewing is more of a technique or technology than it is a mystic science. In reality, there is nothing mystical or mysterious about remote viewing at all.
Remote viewing is purported to have begun during Cold War when CIA and military decided to use this technology for remote spying. However, through research, it has been found that forms of remote viewing have been used for centuries by various civilizations.
Remote viewing allows us to look at other places and times without ever leaving our seat. It allows us to examine information and situations that we would otherwise never gain access to in our lives. Everyone can do it as, at one time, we were all able to use it. However, over time, this ability was pushed aside through religion, society, and by blocking our own creative subconscious. By opening that doorway again, you can use remote viewing for a multitude of applications including enhancement of your own life.
--- The Universal Library ---
Consider human brain. Indeed, as small as it is there is no conceivable way that we can store all of information that we know in there and expect it to function efficiently. Additionally, since we all have same brain, where do spurts of genius and inspiration come from? Finally, with stories of people who have had half of their brains removed due to illness or trauma, how can they still function as normal human beings?
The theory is that brain is not only a control center for human body, but it is also a massive receptor and connection to Universal Library, also known as "The Matrix." Every piece of information every known, and that will be known, exists in this library and is available to us at any time that we want to reach out and grasp it.
Everything and everyone has a place, or a coordinate, within this matrix. Essentially, anything that uniquely identifies a piece of information in Universe can be used to locate and access that information and its relationships --- including our individual selves.
--- Where did that come from? ---
As we grow, we eventually fall to beliefs that society and religion places on us. Our subconscious becomes that place where "evil lurks" and where we toss our old garbage that didn't work for our conscious mind. Basically, our ability to feel and see outside of ourselves diminishes and falls prey to "collective conscious." This is where we all exist in our grounded, every day world. However, there is also a "collective subconscious" in which we participate and yet, we don't even know exists. Have you ever wondered where an idea came from? Albert Einstein, Steven Hawkings, and many of intellects of our day and age in science, business, and entertainment all get these "flashes of genius." It is not so much that anyone is "born a genius." It is fact that they are born with ability, and belief, to access information that is available to us all. Consider idiot savants and autistic children. How can they do what they do? Where are they if they are not here?
All of our true intellect comes from our subconscious. Consider a situation where we have no creative subconscious. In such a case, everything we have ever done is everything we will ever do. We would become "stuck" because we would have no way to change directions by applying new ways of thinking to old ways of doing. It is creative subconscious that allows us to devise new and better ways of doing things and our conscious mind takes that new information and enhances our reality accordingly.
--- Analytic Overlay ---
One of more interesting abilities required of a remote viewer is use of all senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. Another trait that is required of remote viewer is ability to accept information for what it is and focus subconscious so that conscious mind doesn't interfere with incoming data. In both cases, this is a difficult task as we are raised to allow our conscious mind to filter out unnecessary information acquired by our senses and only use information that applies to our current situation and our existing beliefs and knowledge. This is known as "analytic overlay." An analytic overlay is closest logical thing your brain knows based on attributes of new idea or information.
For example, analytic overlay occurs when we've acquired a considerable amount of information during a remote viewing session and our conscious mind applies this information to something we already know. For instance, four or five pieces of information might be characteristics of a particular item that your logical mind can identify. In this way, your brain turns target into something that is familiar, thus misguiding your session.
