Statement from Mr. O’Donnell
Parts of the explanations presented below about the reasons for the success of remote viewing may, at first, seem somehow difficult to comprehend for some individuals.
Mr. O’Donnell would like to strongly emphasize that the audio training tapes are phrased on purpose using common language that everybody, from children to adults can easily understand. These tapes are so powerful that Mr. O’Donnell guarantees that from the first time that an individual listens to the first tape, he/she will enter a state of altered heightened consciousness within the first ten minutes of listening to the tape in a relatively quite environment. No matter who the individual is.
The most important goal for Mr. O’Donnell is to allow the desired results to be achieved easily and with great success for the ones who shall desire to evolve to a higher level of understanding and mental operation.
Mr. O’Donnell is nevertheless considering the possibility of making more information available for free download from this site to anyone who desires it.
This material is an attempt at explaining scientifically the Remote Viewing phenomenon and its relation to the time/space equation.
Advance RV ( remote viewers) may have most probably experienced the web of life to the point where they often have some problem figuring if they are witnessing the present, past, or future. It is quite likely that they will particularly enjoy the information made available on this site as an adjunct to their higher evolutionary scale of understanding.
Q: How is it possible to visit instantly any location in the universe in the present, past or probable future? What happens to space/time?
A: According to the non-locality (bridging of space/time: Space and time does not really exist at the level of particles) principle of quantum physics that was proven experimentally in 1982 by the research team of Alain Aspect working at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Optics of the university of Paris, France, the inequality of John Bell had been finally violated and the Einstein/ Poldowsky/Rosen (E.P.R.) paradox finally solved.
Hence Einstein had been wrong in refuting quantum mechanics principle of non-locality because he had conceptual problems with its extraordinary implications upon our so-called material world and the nature of reality.
To the layman this means that Einstein erred in assuming that speeds faster than light were impossible and/or that space and time did not operate at the quantum level (particle level).
By extension we can say that it seems that our phenomenal world is in reality supported by an indivisible reality , non-local (at that level space does not exist), and non subject to the restrictions of time (time does not seem to have any meaning at that level).
This is equivalent to saying that no element (alive or inanimate) in this universe is separate from another , although at the level of individual perceptions of reality it certainly seems to be so!
This correlates strongly with the Holographic model of the universe that the physicist David Bohm postulated as an explanation for the paradoxes that quantum physics raises.
David Bohm, who was one of the preferred students of Einstein at Princeton University and was part of the “Manhattan project” ( the development of the American A bomb during WW II), was considered before his death in 1992 as one of the greatest theoretical quantum physicist.
Bohm was puzzled by physical phenomenon such as the “Quantum-Tunneling effect” which is at the base of the semi-conductor theory and gave us the creation of the transistor, microchips, Josephson junctions in Super-Computers etc..where a particle such as an electron seems to “know beforehand” if a barrier that it will encounter is strong enough to repulse it back , and if this is not the case, the particle literally “vanishes” (dematerializes) itself before encountering the obstacle and “rematerializes itself ” on the other side of the barrier.
For Bohm who took its clues from the model of the hologram, if as quantum physics suggests our universe is non-local and infinitely interconnected at some deeper level of reality, instead of viewing a particle as a material object traveling through space, it might be better to view it as something that unfolds out of a deeper level of reality that he coined ” The Implicate Order”: a gigantic multidimensional holographic reality (outside of the realm of space/time) made out of vibratory light carrying information that would encompass the totality of Creation.
This “Implicate Order” would spread its tentacles to every sentient unit of Creation as it goes through a constant dance of unfolding itself into its mirror image as the “Explicate World” (i.e the reality perceived by our senses) and projects to each observing individualized piece of consciousness the illusion of a material world “out there” at the level of conscious awareness.
The implicate order ( let’s call it the web of life) is where all possibilities are there and time/space has no meaning.
And the “Implicate Order” keeps on projecting out onto the consciousnesses witnessing the explicate world what we perceive as reality in a step-by-step fashion.
After each unfolding, there is an enfolding back onto the “Implicate Order” (while the sentient unit of mind become unconscious again) and the fetching of additional pieces of information that will unfold back holographically to the same unit of consciousness (as that unit becomes aware i:e conscious again of the next step of the show of Creation).
So that in effect what a unit of consciousness considers a flow of situations is but a succession of discontinuous sensory imagery being projected on-and-off to an entity.
Therefore all an entity is, is a processor of information filtered through his senses that it translates as its reality. And that allows him/her to act upon (co-create) it by choosing the next step.
This would explain the reason, if we accept that reality at the macroscopic level is discontinous under the illusion of continuity, why in Quantum Physics according to the “uncertainty principle” only the location of a particle at the microscopic level can at any point be precisely described but that its real trajectory cannot be known and remains “fuzzy”.
It is the contact with the Higher Self (interfacing with the Implicate Order) that allows one to bridge instantly space/time.
This is why Remote Viewing is only possible and effective when one operates from the perspective of the higher levels of the subconscious mind.
If this level of merger with the higher level of the subconscious mind is not reached, too much static (noise) interferes in the viewing and one might fail while attempting to view a remote site in the present, past or future.
Ingo Swann who was the main remote viewer at he Stanford Research Institute (second largest scientific think tank in the U.S.) and who was instrumental in attracting the attention of the C.I.A. , D.I.A. and other branches of the U.S. security establishment, realized early enough that he was projecting his mind into a web of predetermined possibilities. He was capital in the setting of a training protocol for future Remote Viewers.
Q: What do you mean by the brain being the processor of information?
A: The human brain has remained until now one of the major enigma of modern science. Neurobiology is studying extensively the biochemical reactions within the brain and sees the effect that emotions and thoughts have upon its very complex electrical and bio-chemical machinery. However the question remains: are the changes seen, the result of thoughts and emotions or the cause of it? It is like the old paradox of who came first: the chicken or the egg?
The question asked is as follows: can the brain analyze and understand itself? Is it some sort of giant computer or more than that?
It is through this machinery of roughly one and a half kilo (3.3lb) that each individual constructs his/her own universe.
When one says that he/she sees, hears, touches, tastes etc.., it is in reality the structures of his/her brain that see, hear, project tactile sensations, olfactory and gustatory perceptions etc…
The “outside world” is an abstract world made out only of waves and vibrations. One needs a brain to be present for the decoding of these waves to be done in a manner that would give us a sensation of “a material world out there”. Without one’s brain or with a defective one , one would hear nothing, and be plunged in darkness.
For instance light waves are a particular type of electromagnetic waves, vibrating very rapidly at over 100 billion times per second, that cover a spectrum, depending on their frequency of vibration, from the infrared (least vibratory and undetected by the brain) to the ultraviolet (also invisible to humans) with all the colors of the rainbow in between.
The light of our material reality, as we perceive it, becomes light only after being decoded by our brain.
Vision results from the simulation of nerve cells in our retina, signaling patterns of light intensity and color, which are “decoded” by the brain in order to give us the impression of spatial reality and separate objects.
The most remarkable feature of visual perception is its ability to convert semicontinuous packets of energy information received at the level of the visual receptors of the brain into individual objects and events, all from the same pulses of electricity running along nerve fibers.
Sound operates in the same way. For individuals that are not deaf, the brain decodes vibratory waves of a frequency roughly between 20 and 20,000 cycles per second onto different sounds whose intensity has to do with the amplitude of these waves.
For touch, pain, and temperature, physical receptors convey stimuli as nerve impulses to a region of the brain called the thalamus that conveys it to region of the cortex called the sensory cortex.
For olfactory senses (smell) and gustatory senses (taste) more complex mechanisms are at play, some of which have not yet been understood.
Therefore, one would tend to imply that the brain, as the central sensory computer of a human being or an animal, would also be the seat of his thoughts. This, in the experience of Mr. O’Donnell, is not the case. And as we shall see some neurophysiologists are of the same opinion.
Q: Isn’t the brain the seat of thought itself?
A: Although thought seems to arise from the level of the brain, one cannot localize a thought within the brain but only observe electro-biochemical reactions to it.
Research done over 30 years by Benjamin Libet, a neurophysiologist (extensively covered in chapter 5 of Fred Alan Wolf book “The Dreaming Universe”: New York, Simon and Shuster 1994) together with brain surgeon Bertram Feinstein at Mount Sinai Hospital in San Francisco, using electrodes implanted in the brain and on the scalp of voluntary subjects, has shown surprising results.
In the now famous 1979 paper on “subjective referral”, Libet proves that it takes roughly from 500ms (1/2 of a second) up to a second between the occurrence of an event and its conscious registration by an individual witnessing or experiencing it.
As an example of this paradox, let us imagine that an animal darts in front of your car. Your brain is theoretically able to react to a stimuli within one hundred milliseconds. You slam the brakes and avoid crushing the animal.
What is at play here? Libet argues after numerous physiological measurements that the person becomes in reality aware of the animal no less than 1/2 a second after the incident. Calling his theory of consciousness “time-on theory” Libet claims that the person reacting is not aware of reacting from up to several hundred milliseconds up to a full half a second later. However, his reaction occurs within 200 milliseconds of the original event, and when interrogated later about the time of his awareness of the action that caused him to react, the person always responds as if he became conscious of the incident at the time of the initial stimulus. In other words, “his memory ” has been altered in order to antedate the conscious awareness of the original stimuli to the real time when it occurred. Libet calls this the “subjective antedating hypothesis”.
Therefore in the aformentioned example, you become aware of the animal in your path 500ms to 1 second after the initial event (real stimulus: real moment when the animal darts across the road). However, it seems that from some unconscious level of yourself the decision is taken, before that interval of time necessary for you to become aware of the event, to break and avoid the animal.
Although, when asked about when you became conscious of the animal, you will invariably refer it to the real time when the animal crossed your path, this is not the real case since your brain only registered that event consciously, as shown in the electrical trace, 500ms to 1 second later.
It certainly was not your conscious volitional mind but rather a part of your subconscious mind that then recoordinated in awareness to your conscious mind the false memory of having been consciously aware of the event “without any time delay”.
A similar example can be cited in a skier who, as he is going downhill a mountain very fast, suddenly encounters in his immediate path a tree or a precipice. He will immediately try to avoid hitting the tree or fall over the cliff. However his brain will only register that dangerous situation 500 milliseconds latter! In this case, if the awareness of the event were to originate from the level of the brain with a half a second delay, the poor skier would most probably loose his life or injure himself badly! But that is generally not the case. Therefore, we seem to find that his thought processes seem to originate from His deep subconscious level, external to the mechanistic brain. This level seems to monitors him on a constant basis. For the same reasons, the brain would rather appear to serve as an interface decoding the somatosensory vibratory signals of what the individual perceives as his reality.
The brain seems to act more as a filtering system than as the seat of thought and volitional action-reaction.
It is the deep subconscious (one might call it soul) that probably really takes care of, and thinks for the individual.
If volitional thought (decision) are made from within the unconscious (subconscious) mind without showing signs of conscious decision at the level of brain, the brain might be functioning as a processor of information that would give us the ability to perceive our world holographically in a way similar to what a virtual reality computer would create..
Therefore, all the brain might be is a processor of information and a somehow temporary storage of memory. Permanent memory seems to be located at the level of the deep subconscious mind.
