Here is a Brief History
of Our Public Demonstrations of Remote Viewing
In 1997, we conducted our first public demonstration
of remote viewing over a period of a few months. The goal was
both to show people that remote viewing is a real phenomenon,
as well as to demonstrate our use of remote viewing procedures.
During the demonstration, we encountered unanticipated problems
that made our results seem ambiguous. We were initially disappointed
with the difficulty of doing publicly what seemed so easy to
do privately. But the ultimate result of this demonstration was
equally unanticipated, and very positive. It forced us to begin
an extended period of research in which we attempted to diagnose
the difficulties we encountered. This period of intensive research
produced some remarkable results, and we finally understood what
happened with our earlier demonstration. In the Fall of 1999
we began our second long-term public demonstration of remote
viewing, one that we hoped would be of interest to many people,
from serious scholars to those simply curious. This new demonstration
required outside participation, and many watched and participated.
