Eighteenth and nineteenth century physical science had completed and embellished the “golden age of a mechanistic and deterministic models of the universe” where the universe and its constituents are ruled by rigid interactive forces that can be measured, phenomena that can be predicted using mathematical tools, and where the universe or any system operating within it is made of the sum of its parts.
Light was thought to be an electromagnetic wave vibrating in an undetected, and later experimentally disproved media: “the ether”, at certain rates of vibration that would define its color. It was part of the electromagnetic wave spectrum that allowed one to perceive an electromagnetic wave as heat, light , radio waves, or other electromagnetic radiations depending on the frequency of its vibrations. This spectrum had been well-defined by the equations of the English physicist James Clerk Maxwell in 1864.
Man’s biology was reduced to a mechanical system albeit of extreme complexity, and thought was perceived to be but an epiphenomenon of the mechanical brain.
All this was very hygienic, logical, and comforting. It allowed to view the so-called invisible world of spiritual forces or entities as a personal unproven hypothesis, and permitted the justification of atheistic concept to be scientifically sound. Basically it allowed for purely atheistic politico-philosophies alike communism to find a sympathetic resonance within the “intelligentsia” and the masses.
It also gave a great mechanistic impetus and approach to the fields of biology, microbiology, psychology, neurobiology, and the allopathic technical mechanistic approach to the health/medical sciences. Technology was “king” and the understanding of interactions between well-defined separated systems would bring the possible conquest of disturbances and imperfections in the “machinery” of biological entities.
Man having created a new religion called “science”, which revered himself and his intellect, had the perception of having attained a Godlike control over nature.
By the end of 19th century the ultraviolet catastrophe – as it came to be known – put this whole hygienic view of the world in question, and the theory of “quanta” of Max Planck was introduced in 1900. The German physicist Max Planck introduced the notion of packets of energy that he called “quanta” in order to explain why the wavelength (color) of the radiation given off by heated objects did not rise in a continuous manner but in discontinuous spurts from value to value as they grew hotter. Danish physicist Niels Bohr, who was to become later one of the fathers of the “Manhattan Project” that developed the first US A-bomb during WWII, used in 1913 the theory of “quanta” of energy in order to prove that the whole world of atoms was full of “quantum” jumps. An electron could jump from one level of energy (so-called orbit) to another without appearing in-between these states. Discontinuity had been introduced in our equation of the universe!
In 1905 Albert Einstein defined light as made of quanta of energy or particles that he coined “photons” in his famous paper explaining the photoelectric effect for which he received a Nobel prize in 1923. He nevertheless acknowledged that light could also be defined as a wave, depending on the mode of observation used in a chosen experiment, and the particle/wave duality was introduced in our attempts to grasp the mysteries of nature.
The new physics of the beginnings of the twentieth century gave a mortal blow to the deterministic principles of the old school of thought. Time and space became relative notions according to the theory of relativity of Albert Einstein. Quantum physics stated that all particles of matter could be viewed either as material bodies or as waves. It allowed for one electron (or any other particle) to be in two locations at once (double slit experiment), and proved that one could not predict the next location of a particle by knowing its present one.
In the strange world of quantum physics, particles dematerialized themselves into waves (such as in transistors) and rematerialized themselves later into particles. This depended on the type of experiment they were subjected to, and most importantly: the choice made by a conscious observer as to how he or she would view these particles.
To most theorists, the phenomena of nature existed only as determined states as a conscious observer witnessed them, either directly, or through the artifacts of a measuring device. Quantum mechanics was born, and with it our view of reality would be forever changed.
In order to comprehend events in the phenomenal world, one needed to introduce a major variable that had until then been ignored: The consciousness (self reflective thought) of the observer. Without the perception of a material world by a conscious entity, there were great doubts as to the existence of that material reality independently of its observation.
In other words we make a potential reality manifest itself by our choices, even retroactively through time and immediately across the perceived infinite space, as the two experiments mentioned hereafter have proven, to the surprise of most physicists. Or, in other words, volition and free will operate outside the confines of time/space, and our impression of making choices is but a delayed awareness of events that higher levels of our minds have already made for us and therefore project to our awareness (ego) as a holographic packet of sensory information, post facto. We are therefore, at a higher level, the maker (subject) of our reality projected to one’s self (object) within the web of probabilities of the quantum world that we “materialize” for both the subject and the object that are but two mirrors of one same reality: Consciousness, defined as self -reflective awareness.
Very advanced “remote viewers” know at which points volition is part of the higher levels of one’s self and at which points it is made available to the lower (conscious level), as the quantum self or higher self merges with the lower self (ego).
Our courses attempts to allow the conscious part (reactive sensory apparatus operating as intellect) and the much higher vibratory mind (deep subconscious level) to merge with each other in awareness in order to allow a human individual to be more in control of one’s reality and probable future. At the level of the higher mind time/space is instantly bridged. “Remote Viewing” and especially “Remote Influencing” allows one to connect to that level.
Mr. O’Donnell only mentions quantum physics in order to allow for the comforting view of reality of most individuals to be shattered and at the very least questioned. Each one is to find his or her own truth, using eventually his or her own path. The course is only meant as a guide to a new world, an opening to a new way of viewing and experiencing reality.
In 1982 at the Institute of Applied Physics and Theoretical Optics at the University of Paris, France, the team of physicists composed of Alain Aspect, Jean Dalibard and Gerard Roger made what may prove to be the greatest scientific discovery of this century. They proved experimentally that the world is non-local or non-separable. This is equivalent to saying that space, as we perceive it to be, does not exist, but is an illusion of our senses. Projected by whom? This is the big question that science tries to answer.
In the same field of quantum theory, time is not only relative but one can experimentally change the past, as the delayed choice experiment, carried out by scientists in the 80’s at the University of Maryland and the University of Munich has proven.
Although this all seems to belong to the realm of science-fiction, it is a reality, albeit hard to accept, for all the minds that dwell in the world of the quanta: a world full of seemingly contradictions, surprises, and a certain sense of humor.
All modern disciplines are nowadays affected by it, short maybe of modern biology, neurobiology and surprisingly psychology that are still embracing a mechanistic view of thought and have not, as yet, been able to define it.
Quantum physics gave us the invention of the atomic bomb, the transistor, the computer chip, laser and devices using laser light as a conduct for information, Josephson junctions in supercomputers, superconductors etc.
You should never doubt your natural-born ability to operate at such a high vibratory level of thought. This ability has been proven since antiquity, and is still utilized successfully by highly secretive intelligence units belonging to the major world powers.
This is one case where a dose of skepticism in the field of thought orientation and exploration is unhealthy, and the fear of ridicule even more so. You have to become open-minded, as a child is. All major shifts in scientific thought have incurred the ire of the static-minded old Praetorian Guard of proven inadequate sclerotic systems that are beginning to hit too many walls loaded with points of singularity.
The methods taught in our courses are probably part of the dawn of a new paradigm shift in scientific thinking that will revolutionize and change the “old classical scientific concepts” of the late 19th century that still rule for most of us our interpretation of our perceived material reality. This will have major implications in the natural and health sciences, the biological perceptions and their assumed correlations, all other phenomenal science, and the understanding of what the mind is.
If we are in the process of constantly creating our reality by thinking about it in an individualized and global manner, and that science reflects but a snapshot of our attempt at understanding our Creation, a major shift in our thought- perception will induce totally different ways at experiencing the phenomenal world and controlling it to our desires.
All aspects of our lives in this new Millennium will, most likely, be profoundly transformed by it.
The introduction of consciousness as a major factor in the equation of reality by modern quantum physics is at the core of one of the major paradox of so-called psychic research. According to quantum physics, the thought of the observer has an influence upon the result of an experiment. Therefore, if we are co-creator of our reality by mere thought, the natural imbued skepticism of many scientists and their methodologies introduce a negative bias in the results that they would obtain in thought experiment such as “remote viewing” etc.
In other words, in order to achieve 100% success at proving the efficacy of “remote viewing or influencing ” one would need to deal with scientists and tests subjects that are of the firm belief of the easy achievement of such mental feats, which would automatically be called a bias experimental protocol by the skeptical scientific community. That is why the best results at remote viewing were always achieved within intelligence and military secret units that pragmatically only cared about bridging time and space effectively using mental technologies, and were not the least concerned about peer recognition and the fear of being ridiculed.
“A human being is part of the whole, called by us the “Universe” – a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.”
Mr. O’Donnell wants to categorically state the followings: All the practical beneficial results of operating at such a high vibratory state of the mind, of which he singles out only a portion thereof below, are and were known to so-called shamans, yogis, ancient cultures, monks, Kabbalists etc. Many have unfortunately solely used it to insure a sense of power and control over other human beings. This is not the stated purpose of our remote viewing course and especially of our Remote Influencing training. Every individual of mankind can easily reach these states that, as a matter of fact, are close to the state where each infant is a birth, when the conscious and the subconscious mind are not yet well perceptually separated and when Theta (4 to 7 cycles per second) and Alpha (8 to 13 cycles per second) waves predominate in the E.E.G. tracing of the infant’s brain.
Operating at a low Theta state (around 4.5 to 5 cycles per seconds) with retained full awareness seems to be correlated with highly successful remote viewing abilities.
It is Mr. O’Donnell contention that the lower the frequency at which most of the brain’s cortex operates, the lesser it filters out messages from the deep unconscious where neither time nor space exists. A realm that one of the greatest quantum physicist of our century, David Bohm, called the Implicate order: indivisible and mirror image of our reality. This is the domain of the delta level: less than 4 Hz (vibrations per second) of the cortical region.
This is not magic: black or white. The spiritual aspect and the comprehension of what is happening is within every human being. Each and everyone has access to it. Quantum physics has only brushed experimentally the big question: has matter created mind or mind created matter? Even though the later is strongly hinted at, the real proof is within the laboratory of one’s own mind. Not within an external technological laboratory apparatus. Although time and space have been experimentally bridged within major research physics labs recently, the implications have yet to seep through and into mankind’s psyche.
In the famous laboratory experiment of modern quantum physics called “the delayed choice experiment” even the past was changed in order to fit the present. Which means that instead of the normal cause-and-effect logic that we are accustomed to, in that case the effect chosen caused the cause to change accordingly. This means that our present choices changes the memory of our past. This original experiment first proposed by the physicist John A. Wheeler in 1978 as a thought experiment, was confirmed experimentally in 1988 under strict laboratory conditions using electronic, ultrafast pocket cells, by two groups of physicists working at the University of Maryland and at the University of Munich.
By correlation , one can say that since our only lived reality is the present, and that we live neither in the perceived past or the probable future, changing the “memory ” we have of either the past or the future greatly influence our reality of the “now”. This is explained in basic terms in the course, and will be developed further in more advance courses, especially for advanced students that perceive it .
Undoubtedly, the most important realization about the nature of reality in the history of mankind was made and proven through a series of experiments conducted at the University of Paris-south in 1982 by a team of optical physicists led by Alain Aspect. These experiments, using high speed switching mechanisms and photons (particles of light) produced by mercury vapor, proved without the shadow of a doubt that the famous mathematical inequality of the theorem of John Bell published in 1964 had indeed been violated. This expressed for the average person, not versed in the highly complex world of quantum mechanics which gave us the transistor, computers , superconductivity etc…., that space is “non-local” which means that it is illusory and the world is not composed of objects that added together form the Universe. Rather, the “subject” viewing the “object” form an indivisible whole where everything is related, and everyone influence everyone and everything else. In other words, there exists a realm outside of space/time where all events of the fundamental processes of nature and life per se operate outside of space/time but generate perceived realities within space/time. Non-locality means that this domain is everywhere and nowhere in particular , everywhen and nowhen. It is nowhere and now&here.
Although this is a truism within the physical sciences, many branches of science still hold dearly to 19th century classical mechanics, and fearing the profound spiritual implications of this reality, are still happily creative in a dangerous cul-de-sac, without long-term vision.
It is great time to go back to the basics and walk back the illusion and enslavement that we created within technological quasi-religious beliefs. Therefore, use the methods given to fashion to yourselves a better present and future. Create and decide to be HAPPY! Everything will unfold from then on, and trust will replace fear for the betterment of all.
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 training sessions 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 most importantly it did in fact imply that space and time do not operate at the quantum level (particle level) at a level of background radiation made up of “pure information” shared instantly across all the manifested realities i.e. universe(s).
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 discontinuous 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 semi-continuous 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”.
As of 2008, the upcoming outcome of a decision could be found in study of the brain activity in the prefrontal and parietal cortex up to 7 seconds before the subject was aware of their decision
Therefore in the aforementioned 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 coordinated 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 somato-sensory 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.
