I think you should switch to Decaf.

I think Penn and Teller (the magician guys) pretty well blew the whistle on this BS years ago, IIRC.

I think Ingo Swann may be legit, but Ed Dames is another story altogether.

Ya know what’s weird?

Right now I’m making a bootleg CD of outtakes from Hüsker Dü’s classic double LP Zen Arcade, called “Complete Zen”.

Listening to the original album over, and over, and over again – helped me make it through a lot as a young man.

My belief is that it’s somewhat delusional, so I put down “possibly” – because there’s got to be some good mystical shit in life to offset all the “bad” mystical shit religious types try and shove down your throat.

As the atheists say; what good is eternal life if you have to wait until you die to get it?

What’s pathetic is when people try and make money off of someone’s quest for spirituality – that’s unfogiveable.

Have you ever read "Conversations with God" parts 1, 2, or 3?

Pretty good stuff.

I think that there is quite a lot we still have to learn about our universe and our minds.

The .GOV has engaged in remote viewing research for years.

A guy named Skip Atwater was supposedly the operations and training officer for the Army Intelligence remote-viewing surveillance program STARGATE. He worked closely with SRI International and is the head of the Monroe Research Institute.

My brother's gf was involved in a hit and run car accident,
and as she was telling me over the phone about it, I said
it was a metallic green 1970's continental or cadillac that
hit her car. She asked me how the in the hell did I know that,
since she didn't tell me what kind of car it was and she didn't
talk to my brother yet.
I told her it just popped into my head.
That stuff is very true.

You know what? I'd like to un-remote view whatever the hell that thing is in your avatar.

I didn't vote since I didn't see the choice "you are crazier than hell" which I wanted.

Is it possible or are the exponents who profess this skill simply self deluded and only "think" they go places?

You should know better by now if you have studied zen that there is little line between thinking and being.

I'll say 'possible' but I'm VERY skeptical -- possible because there's a helluvalot we don't know about the human mind. Skeptical because if it were possible, teenaged boys would be figuring it out to go check out hot women.

This thread is worthless without Chi.

I believe that remote viewing may be possible when one reaches a certain level of enlightenment.
I have seen pretty convincing studies that yielded very positive results from the participants.
It is interesting to note that the CIA and the US Army thought enough of remote viewing to spend millions of dollars researching it in a program called "Stargate". You can read more about it here.

It's not only possible that they're deluded, it's just about certain.
