4.- Toward a Scientific Understanding of Remote Viewing

The Russians have been the world experts in biophysics and especially biophysical energy fields since the late fifties, concentrating their research on military use and areas such as telekinesis. They have also investigated the existence of specific psi genes that promote and mediate remote viewing. Their greatest achievements lie in the discovery of the biophysical fields involved in psychotronics, which led them on to develop a biological basis for remote viewing.


Advances in developmental cell biology during the last ten years have enabled the science of biophysics to include psi. Remote viewing uses biophysical fields to enable perception to occur outside of the physical body. This can be explained as biophysical awareness, or a sixth sense, and is the basis for out-of-body experiences, clairvoyance or remote viewing, ESP and telepathy.

The physical body is surrounded by a mantle of electromagnetic energy. In fact, our eyes pick up this low-level light emission, but 90 per cent of it is filtered out in the thalamus area of the brain, the part that deals with attention (Figure 2). The thalamus is controlled by the brain’s limbic system, which looks after our emotions, decision-making and memory. The information that gets through this mental filter is fitted into a visual mental model which we see as reality.


The advanced mental training involved in remote viewing enables the remote viewer to clear the neural and mental blockages that make ordinary people perceive but a pale shadow of the real world. Children are taught to see the world as their parents and teachers do, and in the process they condition themselves to block out imagery that does not conform to the norm, such as auras around people, imaginary friends, empathic awareness and the ability to read body language that enables the child to know how another person is feeling.

Once visual perception is unfiltered using remote-viewing training programmes, auras, the emission of visible light around people, can be seen. Stimulation of the brain by the use of autovisualization can affect brain function so that deeper more relaxed states of mind, which are the gateway to remote viewing, can be achieved. The Russians discovered that visualizing a set of physical actions, such as gymnastics or shot putting in the mind's eye, enabled Soviet athletes to train their bodies to better accomplish the athletic event.


They also discovered that autovisualization of the immune system could boost its efficiency. Dr Carl Simonton developed this methodology in the United States. He taught cancer patients to visualize their immune system's white blood cells eating cancer cells. Autovisualization was found to increase the life expectancy of these terminal cancer patients. I have found that autovisualization of the brain itself can alter consciousness and develop remote-viewing abilities without recourse to expensive biofeedback and EEG machines, as used by the Russian and US military for remote viewing.


The electromagnetic field around the body consists of infrared and visual-range radiation, together with electric and magnetic fields. My research interest has been in the biological and biophysical basis of paranormal phenomena. Since the body has an intrinsic electromagnetic mantle, could this electromagnetic field be projected outside the body? As discussed before, Dr Ross Adey, of the Brain Research Institute of the University of California, carried out research on how the human brain could be controlled by the use of pulse-modulated microwaves.


Research in this area of microwave mind control was begun by the Russians in 1953. Dr Adey has given us a pathway by which electromagnetic fields can directly affect the brain and body. Research shows that tiny levels of microwave radiation, if they carry ELF waves, can kill, make the victim mad, or change behaviour. Could information gleaned by roving biophysical electromagnetic field effects be the basis for remote viewing? These electromagnetic fields could be picking up information, then transferring them to the brain.


Could remote viewing be a case of mental radio, one mind picking up what another mind is seeing by mechanisms similar to a wireless tuning into a radio station? Russian research pointed to ELF waves being the carrier for remote-viewing information. ELF waves below 20 cycles per second can pass through the cranium and be picked up by the brain. Remote viewing could well work on an analogous mechanism. It seems a valid basis for remote viewing. Unfortunately it is not the whole picture.

The Sunday Times reported that Ingo Swann, in a remote-viewing session, was asked to look at Jupiter. He reported that the planet had a ring around it. At the time this was thought to be incorrect. Swann assumed his 'discovery' was a mistaken view of Saturn. In a 1977 account of their findings, Hal Puthoff counted it as an error. Two years later, Voyager 1 sent back pictures of Jupiter showing the planet did indeed have a ring around it. No time delay in Ingo Swann’s remote viewing of Jupiter had been noted. This indicates that electromagnetic radiation is not the carrier for remote viewing. Experiments have been conducted in which remote viewers try to look at distant locations from shielded rooms which block out all electromagnetic radiation. The shielded rooms offer no impediment. The conclusion to be drawn is that something other than electromagnetic radiation must be involved in remote viewing.

As an experiment, I built a Faraday cage room from which to carry out remote-viewing experiments. A Faraday cage room is a metal lined enclosure that is earthed so that it blocks out electromagnetic radiation. I experienced no negative effect; in fact it seemed to boost remote viewing by blocking out extraneous signals. Russian remote viewers regularly psychically visited US facilities supposedly protected by electromagnetic flytrap field generators, such as those deployed at Dulce (a miles deep super-secret US base) and Cheyenne Mountain, home of Strategic Air Command. All of this adds weight to the idea that something beyond the simple mental radio concept, where electromagnetism is used as the radio wave, is acting as the carrier for remote viewing.


Normally, people function in the beta state of consciousness (Figure 3), which pushes EEG measured brain-wave frequency above the 20Hz threshold and there is no contact with calcium efflux events (see page 00). If these events, which intimately affect brain function by controlling the neuronal connections, are, as I believe, an integral part of all psi operations, the general public will not be affected or exhibit parapsychological talents to any marked degree. Since the general public operate in beta, normal consciousness acts as a barrier. In day-to-day life, their thoughts have no conscious effect on what goes on in their own brains. Remote viewing can be seen as new programming. We need to be able to input directly to our own brains in order to alter the programming.

Alpha training, encouraging work in the 7-14Hz range, seems to open up psi abilities. If neuronal calcium efflux events are crucial to psi operation, we can begin to see a reason why simple techniques of alpha training and biofeedback bring on paranormal functioning in humans. Ed Dames has confirmed that military remote viewers operate in theta. This is a brain-wave frequency of 4-7Hz. It may be that the lower frequencies in the 6-20Hz window, are more powerful for psi activity. Since the energy of the electromagnetic wave is related to frequency, if we lower the frequency of the brain waves, we can think with less energy, and more energy is available for remote viewing, which is therefore more efficient. Theta consciousness is the doorway to remote viewing and psi.


To understand what is really going on beyond the electromagnetic bandwidth of remote-viewing events, we need to look at a reappraisal of physics. In the early part of this century, Dr Erwin Schrodinger and Werner Heisenberg formulated the basic laws of quantum mechanics. This theory describes the physics of the subatomic world. They maintained that in the world of quantum mechanics, subatomic entities such as the electron could behave not only as a particle, but also as a wave (Figure 4). This ability is supposed to disappear as the entities get bigger, so that in the normal world it is non-existent. What if the biophysical fields used for remote viewing are not composed of electromagnetic radiation, but are a new form of quantum fields? If this were so, then these large-scale quantum-mechanical events could explain how the biophysical field can be in two places at once - over the target site and over the remote viewer.

Dr Tom Bell developed the theorem of quantum mechanics named after him, which shows that a subatomic particle, or photon, which splits in two is forever linked; each separate particle, which was at one time a unit, shares the same characteristics. If the biophysical body is a quantum field, then when it splits into two for remote viewing, each component part would know what the other paired biophysical field was perceiving. Quantum transmission could explain how information is passed from remote-viewing site to remote viewer. In quantum mechanics, the notion that an entity can be in two different states at the same time is common place and is called superimposition of states.

The whole theory of quantum mechanics is dependent on Schrodinger's wave equation, developed from wave theory. In this mathematical relation, the probability of finding a particle is given by a function that follows wave mechanical principles. So instead of a particle being localized, it is smeared across space and one can only give a probability of finding it until it is properly observed. This equation states that quantum events are non-localized potential possibilities. The observer collapses the quantum wave function to produce an event. It is as if the act of observation deflates the many potential quantum wave functions and forces it to manifest in only one specific fashion.


This would mean that, in theory, while remote viewing, the biophysical field of the remote viewer travelling to the target site may in fact be a quantum wave function which may be smeared into many possible states. Upon arriving at the target site, the remote viewer's biophysical body may have difficulty manifesting - like dreamers trying to wake up in a dream. This could be the reason why remote viewing is hit and miss until the viewer is adequately trained. It may also explain why remote-viewing information is patchy, then suddenly there can be bilocation, where it seems as if the remote viewer is actually at that distant location.

In one well-known experiment, Schrodinger sealed a living cat in an airtight container with a poison gas canister which could be activated by the decay of a radioactive isotope. The isotope had half its life left, equalling the time for which the cat was to be incarcerated. Since there was a fifty-fifty chance of the radioactive isotope decaying and sending the lethal signal to release the poison gas, the cat had a fifty-fifty chance of surviving.


But according to quantum mechanics, the cat is composed of a wave function that, until observed, is smeared out, making the cat both dead and alive until an observer opens the container and collapses the quantum field of the cat, which is now linked with that of the radioactive decay of the isotope. This experiment demonstrates how subatomic quantum effects can indeed have real-world effects. Superimposition of states, the cat being both dead and alive until observed, upon which the cat suddenly becomes either dead or alive - not both as previously.


Could remote viewing be the result of a biophysical field moving in a parallel reality, which is contiguous with our own but only makes itself known to us in the quantum realm? Perhaps this parallel reality is seen in lucid dreaming and out-of-body-experiences and is glimpsed in daydreaming states? Australian aborigines have a range of beliefs about this dreamtime reality. Perhaps remote viewers are relearning abilities that our ancestors knew of millennia ago.

Perhaps we must debug old operating systems, getting rid of the mental viruses which dictate habitual ways of thinking and acting. It is possible to upgrade this bio-software so that you can achieve your full potential with respect to remote-viewing abilities. To this end, you must have a thorough understanding of the various tools you will need to interface with your biophysical vehicle, and of the biophysical field itself which acts as the conduit for remote-viewing information, in order to become aware of the other quantum reality to which modern man has blinded himself.


The former Soviet Union has been researching psi genes for decades. KGB operatives were told to pick up people displaying paranormal abilities for use in their vast parapsychological research projects. One theory thrown up by current research is that there are secondary and primary psi genes.

  • Secondary psi genes are those that facilitate biophysical integration with the organism and which produce the code for richer and higher function neural networks to interface with the biophysical energy. These secondary psi genes make a clearer channel between brain and energy body.

  • Primary psi genes are those that give enhanced remote-viewing capability by the specific nature of the proteins for which they produce the code for, acting as psychotronic amplifiers, biophysical batteries, and other more obscure phenomena which are involved with biophysical processing, storage and utilization.

It appears that some people’s bodies act as natural psychotronic generators, storing psi energy. The more of these primary psi genes you possess, the more biophysical energy is available for remote viewing. Some people are natural power houses of such energy.

The high basal stress levels of western man release a torrent of neuro-hormonal and electrical stimuli that appear to switch off the psi genes. In effect, stress keeps us 'normal'.


How could stress interfere with remote viewing? It has been found that the brain is directly connected with the immune system. When we are highly stressed, the brain through its nerve connections and by hormonal routes, causes a variety of stress-related proteins to be released into the body, some of which inhibit psi-gene activity. More importantly, the high state of anxiety keeps the person out of the theta state, which is the doorway to the paranormal and hence remote viewing. So learning to switch off the negative feedback cycle that keeps you in a state of anxiety is vital to initiating remote viewing.


Dr Gerald Edelman, a leading neurophysiologist, has formulated the theory of neural Darwinism. This postulates that neurones, which are the connections between brain cells, compete with each other by natural selection. It is as if each brain cell and each connection fight each other for survival. Only the fittest survive and in the case of the brain, that means only those connections which are frequently used. In the process, neural networks form which have the capability of primary consciousness; or in plain language, the connections make a pattern of brain cells so that the subject can be aware of what is going on around it through the senses.

This work, taken in conjunction with Russian research and my own, lead to the intriguing possibility that there is a mechanism by which the biophysical body may begin to develop the ability to think separately from the physical body. If we practiced remote viewing, perhaps the biophysical body is developed from a latent state to one in which it has a mind of its own?


Many cell developmental biologists believe that the human genome does not contain enough information to turn a clump of fertilized egg cells, called a blastocyst, into an embryo. Morphogenetic fields are needed to switch on specific gene groupings dependent on their position in the blastocyst in the womb. These biophysical morphogenetic fields switch on specific genes and turn off other genes, all based upon their location in the clump of cells. If they are near the top axis, they become eye and gullet cells, at the bottom axis, an anal opening, in the centre of the blastocyst the gut tube, on the surface, skin cells, etc. Biophysical fields hold the information to tell each identical cell to be different depending upon position.

It was a profound revelation to me when I realized that the biophysical field contains large amounts of information not held in the genome, and that it can control gene expression. Like the neurones affected by neural Darwinism, perhaps morphogenetic fields could evolve through primary consciousness to high-order consciousness? In effect, by exercising the biophysical body using remote-viewing techniques, the morphogenetic fields of which it is composed might evolve with long practice to become self-aware.


The theta state is important because it allows the normal person imprisoned in consensus reality to escape the shackles of the real world. The summation of everyone’s belief is amplified by their group psi-fields and the six billion people on the planet produce a very powerful psi-field that effectively hides paranormal phenomena.

In order to escape consensus reality and practice 'impossible' paranormal phenomena such as remote viewing, the psi-operator must attune his biophysical body with the Earth's biophysical field. By this means, the much larger biophysical field of the Earth can erase the effects of the PDF generated by humanity. The theta state allows the remote viewer to resonate with the biophysical field of the planet. This boosts the biophysical field of the psi-operator to the extent that paranormal phenomena can become possible. The Earth resonates at about 7.8Hz, the natural frequency of the planet. Theta begins at this frequency. It is as if the biophysical body of the remote viewer in the theta state resonates with the planet's biophysical field at the magic 7.8Hz.

In order to enter the theta state, it is better if there is a group of you. The group's biophysical fields join together when remote viewing is carried out in unison. This merged group consciousness boosts the remote-viewing capacity of all the remote viewers in the group. By working in teams, there is a synergistic amplification of remote-viewing potential in all the individual members of the group.


The leading authority on language is Noam Chomsky, who has put forward the idea that:

'the language organ was not an adaptation, but a mystery, or a hopeful monster. It was something that perhaps would be illuminated some day by physics, but not by biology.'

Chomsky proposed that the structure of language is primarily fixed in the form of innately specified rules and all the human baby does to learn language is to reroute a few neuronal pathways that make that person into a Spanish speaker, say, rather than an English speaker.


According to Chomsky, the baby does not have to learn all aspects of language from scratch. Instead the baby is born with the equipment to express language and merely has to rule out a few possible neuronal pathways and rule in a few others. It is as if children have the programme for language already in place in their brains. Chomsky goes further and maintains that it is easy for even 'slow' children to learn a language because they are not really learning anything. A few developmental triggers set the language-acquisition process in motion and a few environmental factors guide the process into the shaping of whatever country's language is spoken, for example speaking English with an Australian accent. My theory is that learning remote viewing follows the same process.

It seems that babies are born with the ability to speak, and given the correct stimulus, this innate characteristic just develops. How can language be hardwired into the brain and if it is not, what information storage system facilitates rapid learning of language in infants? As we have seen some developmental biologists believe that morphogenic fields shape the amorphous clump of egg cells into a fully differentiated baby.

  • Could biophysical fields act as carriers of such information?

  • Could consciousness itself be in the biohysical field?

  • Could this be the scientific reality behind Athur Koestler’s phrase, ‘the Ghost in the Machine?

I believe that that the brain and the biophysical field can both be conscious, independently of one another (Fig 8). When they work together, there is a synergistic amplification of function. Humans possessing biophysical fields that have the potential to be conscious, explains out-of-body-experiences, dreaming, doppelgangers, and a host of other paranormal phenomena. Dr Sheldrake has suggested that if we are influenced by morphogenetic fields from particular individuals to whom we are linked, then it is possible that we might pick up thoughts, images and feelings from them, while we are waking or dreaming, even though they may be thousands of miles away.


In controlled ESP, the operator sends his biophysical field to interact with the person being scanned. In spontaneous telepathy, other people’s biophysical fields might impinge on our own, causing their ideas to enter our heads. This for example may be as prosaic as knowing someone is going to ring or visit us, just before the event occurs, or it may be the remote viewer looking inside the monitor's brain to see the target to be remotely viewed. The world of soul and spirit is in these scientific terms, filled with morphogenetic fields and be a place of luminous biophysical quantum reality, a reality scientists only glimpse in the subatomic realm of electrons and nuclear particles.


To become a powerful remote viewer or controlled telepath, the biophysical fields that comprise our mind would have to evolve through primary consciousness, the state of being aware of surroundings, to high-order consciousness, where the biophysical field is self-aware, a process which as we have seen is analogous to the development of consciousness by neuronal selection in our own brains.

To achieve this evolution of the psyche, we would have to train our biophysical fields to become fully aware. Raising the consciousness of biophysical fields is very difficult because we are programmed from birth to believe they do not exist. When children mention their awareness of this biophysical world, they are told to stop daydreaming and grow up. Biophysical awareness is suppressed and our psyche remains stunted. What we think is our mind is in fact the brain, whilst the psyche lies in the biophysical arena - and we normally only touch upon them in dreams and daydreaming states.

Remote viewers have to develop their biophysical fields to become aware of their surroundings, which enables them to view information in distant locations. This takes time and practice.


The brain has around it a morphogenetic field like the rest of the body. This field effects calcium efflux, the movement of calcium ions out of cells. Calcium efflux events effect the synaptic connections between brain cells. Therefore the morphogenetic field not only is influenced by the state of activation of synaptic connections, but it influences every synaptic connection. In effect we have a synergy between the morphogenetic field and every synaptic connection in the brain

If the morphogenetic field is part of the biophysical field, which the author posits is a quantum field, then every interaction in the brain can be stored in the biophysical field’s quantum computer. The biophysical field can be thought of as synonymous with the mind. Whatever happens in the brain is recorded in the biophysical quantum computer mind.

Quantum entities can be in more than one state, or place at any given time. So the quantum computer can overlay the body and a distant remotely viewed site simultaneously. Thus the mind can become aware of distant events and places by its non-locality and the biophysical field records the remotely viewed site by quantum computing.

The biophysical body can then download this information into the brain by globally changing the potentiation of the synapses in the brain that can pick up the remotely viewed information. Puthoff found that the temporal lobes of the cortex of the brain were involved in remote viewing.

So this appears to be one of the sites in the brain where quantum computing information of the biophysical field is turned into synaptic changes that the brain can analyze as remote viewing information.

In the process of developing mind-over-matter abilities, the biophysical vehicle, which surrounds us all, needs to be developed to the point where it can work independently of the body. This has been known for centuries by shamans, witch doctors and so-called magicians, though not perhaps in those terms. For them, a long apprenticeship is needed to energize the initiate’s biophysical field. The teacher takes his pupil to many power spots; the neophyte's biophysical body acquires energy from these sacred places and swells in size. Combined with specific training to programme the biophysical body to become self-aware and finally act independently as a conscious biophysical vehicle, we have a well-developed methodology for developing mind-over-matter ability.


When we factor in the paranormal forces of each individual human on the planet, each of us can have a massive effect on the future outcome of events. If we think of the future as a quantum-mechanical event, along the lines discussed on page 00, it can be in all possible states until it is collapsed by the act of observation. Since there are six billion human observers, the particular future that is manifested by the group is dependent on the PDF. As the PDF defines what is possible and what is not possible, only a small subset of possible futures is ever revealed. Of these, only one becomes the future we all will live in.

An example of this is the national lottery. A large percentage of the population are willing their numbers to come up with all their might. This situation generates a lot of emotion, which as we have seen is conducive to generating paranormal phenomena. These people are using all their latent paranormal powers to influence the balls telekinetically, as well as subconsciously to remotely view the future numbers. As we have seen on page 00,US researchers, such as Robert Jahn, have found that people can influence the falling pattern of ball bearings, or the random counting of a computer, using telekinesis. By generating such emotional desperation, the national lottery amplifies this telekinetic effect. A remote viewer trying to foresee the outcome of events, has to look through a paranormal blizzard of conflicting telekinetic intents where tens of millions of people are subconsciously trying to influence the fall of the numbered balls in the lottery machine.

On ‘The Paranormal World of Paul McKenna’ shown on British television, the audience was asked to concentrate on six specific numbers. When the lottery was run, two of these numbers came up and a third came up as the bonus number. The National Lottery immediately changed its rules, so that if too many people got three numbers, it would not be obliged to pay them.


The areas of the brain which are involved in remote viewing were studied at the Stanford Research Institute by Hal Puthoff, funded by the CIA. His team found that the temporal cortex is active while a person is remote viewing. The cortex is used for visualization and the occipital cortex is used to process visual information. The older limbic system which lies beneath the spongy grey matter we call the cortex, is used for decision-making. All our decisions are taken on an emotional level; we intellectualize them afterwards. The limbic system mediates information processing, the hypothalamus being used for memory and the thalamus for attention. The reticulate gyrus is also concerned with information processing. Since emotional content plays such a large part in remote viewing, the amygdala, a small structure in the limbic system, which is concerned with emotions and is the pleasure centre, is also involved.

Research seems to indicate that remote-viewing information is transferred to the brain by quantum mechanical interactions between the biophysical body and the brain. At a higher level, memories from the biophysical body and from the brain are transferred by use of biophysical fields which affect the neurones; this is tied up with control of calcium concentrations in the brain.

Cell developmental biologists have found that the morphogenetic fields which control cell activity can change the calcium levels in the cells by use of field effects. These morphogenetic fields enable the biophysical body to control cellular chemistry and what takes place in the cell nucleus (Figure 9). We have so many avenues of communication between biophysical body and brain that the interaction must be seen as hierarchical; in a similar manner to how competitive cell death establishes primary and high-order consciousness in the brain by means of Darwinian selection. At the top of the hierarchy in the brain is the temporal cortex, which combines the remote-viewing data into the complex mental image.


The areas of the brain which enable precognition are little understood. American experiments in showing people pornographic photographs which are present in a larger pack of non-emotive pictures, such as those of the countryside, have shown an elevation in physical responses five seconds before the pornographic photo was observed. The responses were measured by sophisticated devices like lie-detectors. This was taken to indicate that at a deep subconscious level, precognition of emotive events occurs.

Airline records show that planes that are about to have fatal crashes have an abnormally large number of cancellations prior to take off. In combat, this sixth sense of danger is heightened. Vietnam veterans tell of numerous paranormal experiences such as remote viewing of mines, bullets being seen in flight, Vietcong traps being sensed. Fighter pilots have to develop a sixth sense which is called situational awareness - a brain state where both hemispheres of the brain are working equally and in synchrony. It is an almost Zen-like state, where there is no chaos inherent in one’s thinking and everything seems more real. Situational awareness means the pilot instinctively taking in a wealth of information, evaluating it, and reacting correctly, with a panoramic view of everything in his or her mind's eye. American fighter pilots call it 'having the clue'.

If both hemispheres of the brain working in synchrony brings about almost precognitive vision for the fighter pilot, it points to brain-centre balancing being a key aspect of looking into the future. When the remote viewer enters theta, this balancing of brain hemispheres takes place naturally.

Theta brain rhythms also enable more of the information received from the biophysical body to be left unmolested. Ninety per cent of the information we receive is filtered out by the thalamus, which is in the limbic system of the brain. Neurophysiologist Karl Pribram of Stanford University, describes perceptive filtering as the Bowery Effect. The Bowery was an elevated railroad in New York, which was demolished. After the late-night service ended, the police were inundated with phone calls reporting something strange happening at exactly the time the train would normally pass through that neighborhood; this went on for months after the railway had gone. People were subconsciously picking up on the lack of noise at the time they were expecting the train and panicking because they did not hear the train passing. Consciously they thought something was wrong, so they phoned the police.

Theta enables us to unblock these mental filters that blinker us to remote viewing and other paranormal phenomena. For precognitive remote viewing, we have to look at how the brain hemispheres process information.

The left hemisphere of the brain deals with data and thoughts in a step-by-step manner. It runs through data in a linear fashion moving from a to b to c. The right hemisphere deals with thought processes in the form of a mental map, where the relationship between data is as important as the data itself (Figure 10). Finding patterns in data is one of the right hemisphere’s abilities. It carries out parallel processing. Ideas are connected to make a bigger picture, like linking notes to compose a symphony. Perception for remote viewing the future appears to be processed by the right hemisphere. Since the right hemisphere is visually connected to the left eye and field of vision, future events which are remotely viewed can appear to glide into one’s mental field of vision from the left-hand side of one’s awareness. The left hemisphere seems to process past events. It is connected to the right eye and field of vision. In one’s mind's eye, events the left hemisphere processes can appear to come into the left field of vision. When remote viewing the past, the mental image appears from the right-hand field of our mind's eye.

This apparent flow of mental images can be explained by the different activities each hemisphere of the brain undertakes. The right side of the brain controls the left side of the body and since this part of the brain can handle patterns and parallel processing, it finds it easier to look at data concerned with probabilities, which describe possible futures. The many possible scenarios we run through our heads before making important decisions to try to evaluate the wisdom of our choices is mainly right hemisphere based. This type of evaluation of possible futures is the mind-set we run to forecast the future of our actions, which is also used by the right hemisphere of the brain.

When the left and right hemispheres are working in synchrony, you experience ‘having the clue’ and there is some evidence to show that pilots may be naturally better at remote viewing. The theta state enables situational awareness, where the information can be quickly passed between right and left hemispheres for evaluation. Theta consciousness enables right-hand dominant brain action such as dreaming to take place and therefore is the perfect state for precognitive remote viewing.

The hundredth monkey effect

As we have seen, groups of people concentrating on the same site at the same time amplify their remote-viewing capabilities. There is a merging of the biophysical quantum-state functions of the field effects involved that boosts remote-viewing efficiency. This is the hundredth monkey effect. A Japanese monkey learned to get rid of the sand in its wild rice by washing handfuls of it in the sea. Other members of its troop copied this behaviour. Once a hundred or so of its peers had learnt this action, the behaviour miraculously appeared in other monkey troops on other islands, far removed from its original progenitor, even though the monkeys never came in contact with each other.


My research into biophysical field effects and how they can interact with other members of the species seems to indicate that when a threshold number of biophysical fields belonging to a group have learnt a new meme (see Page00), the intent for that meme is spread by spontaneous telepathy. The first US remote viewers spent 12 hours a day, seven days a week, for 18 months, learning remote viewing. This training time has now been cut to six months. I am informed they are also more accurate than the original trainees. Remote viewing is becoming easier to learn because of the hundredth monkey effect. In the future, many more people will be able to practice remote viewing and with greater accuracy.

In remote viewing, the paranormal operator develops his biophysical body in a way akin to the training shamans used to inculcate paranormal ability in their students. Once the biophysical body has been developed, it can be projected and can become aware of its distant surroundings and can then return to the physical body.

In remote influencing, the biophysical vehicle of the paranormal operator then travels to the target and the biophysical field merges with that of the victim. Since the paranormal operator has a more developed biophysical body, he or she can overpower the victim's undeveloped biophysical body. Taking over the victim’s biophysical body, the remote influencer's biophysical body can then upload the codes which are used to interact with the victim's brain. By this method the remote influencer can begin to operate the natural calcium efflux in the victim's brain.


A considerable number of the memes we acquire throughout our lives degrade health and mental and physical capacity and capability. Memes are acquired mental software which mould our neural networks in unique ways. Speaking a language, driving a car, are all acquired memes. Memes are highly contagious and resist being eradicated once they are in your consciousness. An example is giving up smoking - once it has become a habit it is hard work to stop. These negative memes will resurface unless they are replaced by positive ones.

Memes - mental software

Ideas have the power to spread through a population almost as if they have a life of their own. It was Dr Richard Dawkins, the eminent biologist, who first called these contagious ideas memes; they have also been called mental viruses. In remote-viewing parlance, positive memes used to inculcate the remote-viewing state of mind are referred to as new mental software or success software. These switch off the negative mind-sets that keep individuals in a state of anxiety, inhibiting remote viewing. If you imagine a world full of infectious mental viruses and their mutants, which use humans as their breeding grounds and carriers and which are passed on to other humans by word of mouth, culture, the media, or by biophysical means, you can see the sense in which our world is shaped by memes.

Table manners, throwing Frisbees, wearing fashion shoes are all memes. Our culture is built up from a complex composite of memes that define who we are, what we think and what we do. hey are pre-eminent in defining society. It might be thought that we all have free will and can do whatever we want. Unfortunately, the situation is not so simple. People can only think and do what they know. In my view, memes are biophysical fields that mould the brain's neural network, i.e. the ideas that are carried in the biophysical field of the meme are transferred into a patterning of the neural network of our brains. The memes that comprise our culture are hardwired into our brains. As explained earlier, language is itself a set of memes found in the biophysical field.


How can remote influencing interact with the brain to plant hypnotic suggestions which are subconsciously acted upon by the victim? A brain structure which seems a likely candidate for the remote-influencing effect of biophysical fields is the supplementary motor area (SMA). Researchers in this field have postulated the interface between mind and body is in the SMA, an area which lies in the top centre of the brain, underneath where the soft spot used to be (see Figure1, page 00). When you decide to carry out any conscious action, the SMA is the first part of the brain to register an excitation potential. Every time you decided to do something, this is the first area which generates electrical activity.

The SMA was first identified in the 1920s by the late Canadian neurophysiologist Wilder Penfield. It was a chance discovery in his search for the epileptic initiator in the brain. Neurophysiologists Robert Porter and Cobie Brinkman surgically placed micro electrodes in the SMA of a monkey. They found that one tenth of a second before the monkey pulled a lever to obtain food, the brain cells in the monkey's SMA fired off electrical signals. SMA activity was well ahead of the cells in the motor cortex, the area of the brain concerned with muscular control.

In the 1960s, the neurophysiologists Luder Deeke and Hans Kornhuber discovered a method for measuring tiny electrical signals that ran through their patients' scalps. They discovered a readiness potential, i.e. nearly one second before carrying out a simple conscious action, the brain generated a gentle increase in negative electrical impulses. This negative electrical potential was the brain's means of preparing to make a conscious action, and was greatest in the SMA.

A research group headed by neurophysiologists Per Roland and Nils Lassen of the University of Lund in Sweden, in the 1980s, used radioisotopic scanning to look at blood flow through the brain. They found that blood flow in a specific area of the brain which is in use is proportional to brain activity. They discovered SMA and motor area excitation during conscious action. It was when they carried out a variation of the motor sequence test that they discovered their momentous and controversial results. In a slight modification of the experiment called the 'internal programming test', a patient was asked to perform the same difficult motor sequence test in his mind but with no physical action.


When patients carried out this test, there was no increase in the blood flow through the motor area; in comparison, the SMA had as much increase in blood flow as if the actions had been carried out. When the action became habitual and could be carried out with no conscious thought, the increase in blood flow in the SMA vanished. This meant that the SMA had been pinpointed as the part of the brain that determined conscious action. If you told someone you were going to do something and your SMA did not fire, you had no intention of carrying out that action. Similarly, if the SMA fired, you would carry out the action as stated. The SMA is the conscious intent beacon in the brain, which lights up every time you consciously will yourself to carry out an action.

Sir John Eccles, a famous neurophysiologist, was excited by this discovery. He stated:

‘It is important to recognize that this burst of discharge of the observed SMA cell was not triggered by some other nerve cell of the SMA or elsewhere in the brain... So we have here an irrefutable demonstration that a mental act of intention initiates the burst of discharges of a nerve cell.’

Eccles drew the conclusions that each conscious activity produced different excitation potentials in the SMA; a neurological code is being played through the SMA; and the non-physical mind is actually using the 50 million or so neurones in the SMA region as if they were controls of some sort, rather like a pianist playing the keys of a piano. These learned sets of sequential neurological code, Eccles believed, are the process of a lifetime of learning physical action, and language.

It seems then that the SMA mediates the flow of information between the biophysical body and the brain. This occurs because every time you make the conscious decision to do something and you carry it out, the SMA fires. By using directed attention on your own SMA, you can programme your brain to carry out actions you wish to do but always make excuses not to do, e.g. giving up smoking. Self-activation of the SMA is the best means of self-motivation and if done correctly is invariably successful. Visualizing an action in your mind's eye has almost the same effect on your body as carrying out that action. I come back to the example of athletes who go through their performance in their mind's eye to get into 'the Zone' of ultimate performance. Alpha and theta states are normally necessary for getting into 'the Zone’ but by programming your SMA while visualizing performance, the brain is programmed to carry out the action no matter what negative stimuli.
