A New Scientific Experiment Involving Prediction and Multiple Universes (Updated 20 March 2010) Principal Investigator: Courtney Brown Remote Viewing the Future: A Way That Works — Design A The experimental design that consistently works well to predict the future involves having the target chosen in the future. That is, a remote viewer is told to conduct a remote-viewing session that describes a target.
The Farsight Institute, a non-profit organization focused on the scientific application of remote viewing, recently released a challenge to mainstream science: organize a tightly controlled, publicly viewable scientific display of the phenomenon of remote viewing in return for mainstream recognition of the validity of the phenomenon itself. And do it in the narrowing window of a vanishing 2012 timescape. Dr.

May 18, 2012 — Modern day soldiers who mutilate enemy corpses or take body-parts as trophies are usually thought to be suffering from the extreme stresses of battle. But, research funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) shows that this sort of misconduct has most often been carried out by fighters who viewed the enemy as racially different from themselves and used images of the hunt to describe their actions. "The roots of this behaviour lie not in individual psychological disorders," says Professor Simon Harrison who carried out the study, "but in a social history of racism and in military traditions that use hunting metaphors for war.

High performers have an astonishing integration of brain functioning (Photo: Bjørnar Kjensli) Brains of such performers function in a way that makes them have peak experiences. These experiences are characterized by happiness, inner calm, maximum wakefulness, effortlessness and ease of functioning, absence of fear, transcendence of ordinary time and space, and a sense of perfection and even invincibility.

Theodore Nash sees only a few dozen patients a year in his clinic at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. That’s pretty small as medical practices go, but what his patients lack in number they make up for in the intensity of their symptoms. Some fall into comas.
