1. June's Remote Viewing challenge - instructions

RV instructions

Welcome to the second Remove Viewing challenge. Everyone is invited to join. No special skills are needed. It costs nothing.

The second Remove Viewing will be just like the first. The ASD Psiberdreaming Conference 2003 featured a Remote Viewing contest organized by Dale Graff. Like the previous time, we will again follow Dale Graff's approach closely. There is one difference. It is a secret who is playing "Dale".


Special occasion

The date and time for the RV were selected by the target provider, and mark a special occasion. June 8th is the day of a rare Venus transit. This transit is speculated to bring the world enhanced psi possibilities.

The transit itself takes seven hours. We tried to pick a time that would get as many people as possible close to the time of the transit.

Target and date

Dale's approach means that the target provider will be actually at the target location, and will try to send the target to the viewers for 30 minutes. The target provider makes photo's that will be shown later.

The date is set for Tuesday, June 8, 2004. The target provider will start sending at the following time:

- Sydney, Brisbane: 7pm (sorry)
- Istanbul: 12 am (only just after)
- Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen: 11 am
- London: 10 am
- New York: 5 am (best seats, and most of you are early birds, right?)
- Los Angeles: 2 am (anyone here from that timezone?)

For more times, see Time and Date.com

Too early? It will also work when you do it later.


Submitting results

There are a few rules when you want to officially join the challenge.

You're expected to send in a description of the location, obviously. One or more sketches will greatly help. Email your results to the target provider of this month, at the following email address: RVTarget@yahoo.com, and make sure to do so within 72 hours after the start of this challenge. Simply add three days to the time above.

Please note: this is a new address. Do not use Laura's address that was used with the first challenge, use this new one.


Discussion of the results

After the three days, I will open a discussion thread, introduce the target provider to you all, and ask you to post your results online.

About deciding who wins. It depends on what we consider important about the description. We could approach it as a way to locate the target. Or we could approach it as an exploration of the target. I suggest we give more weight to the first, the usefulness of the description for locating the target.

There are no other guidelines yet on deciding who wins. The target provider will accept advice on how to decide, but is the only one who gets to make the final decision.

Good luck!

Harry

P.S. Did I mention the challenge is open to everyone? Give it a try, it's fun! There's a webpage with some background information.

Okay Harry - I'm in again - this is the "round earth effect" isn't it! You post late your night - and here I am waiting in morning sunlight to respond.
The time's not bad either Harry - decidedly better than the last time.
And fun to make it coincide with the transit of venus.

The timing's pretty good for end-of-night dreaming for us on the East Coast of the U.S., too!

Harry -

I have to agree with Curt that the end of the night dreaming potential here on the East Coast is going to be fun!

Looking forward to flipping over to the other side of the RV challenge this time around.

Peace,
Laura A.

Hi Harry;

I am in too. Much more excited this time. I think I am gaining my self esteem in awake RV experiences after last month. This time I will also try precognative dreaming before the sending time and mor focused at the time of sending which is a good time for me. I wish luck to everybody - ilkin

Hi all,

Kathy, on the internet it usually feels like you are following after me, but with this RV we will all be following you and Victoria. And any other Australians who join.

Good to hear everyone likes the time. It would be fun to have somebody from Honolulu too.

When submitting, make sure to mention whether it is a RV or dream you are submitting. You can do both if you want, but only one of each maximum.

Even though I bombed on Dale Graff's last year I will keep trying I will join in from California and YES some of us are on PST time (L.A.)

If I understand your instructions we don't know who the sender is or the target place? We are trying to dream of the place?

Thanks, LizLynne

Hi LizLynne!

Good to see you here. Well, it can only get better, and I'm sure it will.

I learned there was one PST time viewer the previous time. With you, there are now two. More are welcome of course.

Yes, the place is what's needed, and it can be anything anywhere. Even in Honolulu.

I added you to my RV mailinglist, so you'll get a reminder. Anyone else who wants reminders for this and future RV's, email me at hbosma@xs4all.nl, and I'll add you to the list.

Hey Harry and Psi-sters (and brothers) it'll be fun to be all hanging together in an RV...

Maybe Phil King from Honolulu would join?

I'll be there too, but I will probably try to have a precognitive dream, because on Tuesday 11 a.m. my boss expects me to concentrate on my work instead of on a remote viewing target location!

Nice to let this RV challenge coincide with the Venus transit.

Cheers,

Berthe

Now, here's a thought: since we are going to be viewing the target object from a number of different locations around the globe, some in the same time zone (more or less north or south of the target), many others not (east or west of the target), it might be interesting if it turned out that the perspective from which we viewed it represented the direction it was in relative to where we are situated! This is where the sketches might come in handy.

Then again, my dream for last month's contest featured both a directional view and a bird's eye view.

Interesting idea Curt. I usually have a hard time determining east or west, but as you point out, perhaps the direction reveals something. I'll ask the target provider for east / west information.

Berthe, Kay, nice to hear you will give it a try.

Diana and Bjo, welcome too. That's two more for the west coast.

Craig, I couldn't find the address of Phil, but Rita volunteered to invite him.

I don't think it would be so important for the remote viewer to know what the direction was (though I frequently do have a sense of this in my dreams, and pretty nearly always in waking life), but perhaps if each of us gave our general location in our posts, our target provider could work this out and see if there was any correlation.

Bumping this up as a reminder that the RV will start within the next 24 hours.

Curt, I'll pass your idea on in the email reminders I'm going to send now, and request to include a general indication of the position of the viewer.

Harry -
I was discussing the RV challenge with some folks last night and my wife suggested another wrinkle: what would happen if 2 or 3 people served as senders of the same target? Would that enhance the strength of the message?

Hi Curt,

That's an interesting idea. I was also thinking of trying without sending, see whether we really need it. Combined we could first do one without sending, followed by one with multiple senders.

Another thing I've been thinking about, is a prize for the first viewer to reach "as-if-there" accuracy. That will be something that could perhaps start with a next challenge.

Hello Everbody;

My remote viewing responsibility is successfully over, eventhough my computer tricked me a little on downloading the photos and information to send.

Please send your RV descriptions, sketches, impressions, etc to: RVTarget@yahoo.com. In the email, please explain to me if you are submitting a "waking" RV or a "dream" RV description before the deadline. Please write every little detail you remember which may be related with our interesting target. Remember the Venus transit will have positive effects on our psi and you still have time.

Good luck to everybady.

RVTarget
