But first, a little background. I had the luxury of attending the Greater Los Angeles Area Mensa Regional Gathering (GLAAM RG) just last weekend which means, in short, I was hanging with a bunch of uber smart people and listening to a bunch of fascinating lectures on everything from our relationship to apes to the subject I'm about to get to: Precognitive Remote Viewing.
I'll be covering this in two parts:
I. How to see the future!
II. How those vile Skeptics view precognitive Remote Viewing
I. How to see the future!
Precognitive Remote Viewing is a really fancy way of saying "our ability to see things that are beyond our senses" which, to some degree, we're all capable of doing! But, what's more, this includes our ability to see into the future.
I'm going to give you the "How to develop your Foresight in a few easy steps" session in a little bit (if you're really attuned, you'll already know what they are. After all, you can see the future), but first I need to confound your little brain by saying the word "Quantum" a lot:
You see, we're all Conscious Quantum Mechanical Self-Programmable Computers and our Quantum Consciousness is interconnected with everything in the universe... past, present, and future. To quote Paul Tillich:
"We accept the present and do not care that it is gone in the moment that we accept it. We live in it and it is renewed for us in every new 'present'. This is possible because every moment of time reaches into the eternal. It is the eternal that stops the flux of time for us. It is the eternal 'now' which provides for us a temporal 'now'"
We exist in the past, present, and future all at once. In fact, we are Quantum Mechanically connected to everything in the universe. It's no wonder we can "see into the future"; we ARE the future!
Now to the part you've been waiting for. Let's find out what the future holds!
STEP 1: Grab a piece of paper and a pencil.
I'm going to show you two pictures at the end of this blog entry... and only one of them will be the correct one. The thing is, you already know which of the two pictures is the correct one, and you also already know what each picture is going to be since they, like you, exist in the "eternal now". You can already see them. And now we're gonna prove it.
STEP 2: Clear your mind of that pesky intellectualism. Skepticism hinders foresight.
While your mind is clear (it might take up to a half hour to clear it) think about the "Correct Picture". Write down (or draw) whatever impressions you get from your subconscious. They could be geometric shapes, they could be words, etc. Remember, you already know what the "correct picture" is. Take your time, I'm in no hurry.
STEP 3: Really, write down whatever your subconscious prompts you to.
I'm about to reveal the first of the two pictures. Remember this may not be the correct one. Here it is:
PICTURE NUMBER 1:
Here, now look at what you drew/wrote down on your piece of paper. Your subconscious might have picked up the bright blue or the brown. Do you have words like "blue", "like the sky", "large", or "brown"? Did you draw a large triangle? or many little circles or rectangles? While you were viewing this image with your subconscious, you might have reacted to the people instead of pyramid. Do you see any connections between your drawing/writing and this picture?
Maybe not. Maybe you were reacting to the other picture. Remember, we still don't know which one is the "correct picture". Here's the other one:
PICTURE NUMBER 2:
Look at what you wrote down/drew on your paper. Did it, perhaps, include words like "dense", "yellow", "people", "green"? Did you draw a circle, maybe? Perhaps you were subconsciously drawn to the building on the bottom, and so would have written words like "white", "bottom", or maybe "foundational"? Do you see any parallels between what you wrote/drew and this picture?
Now, to reveal what the correct picture is! You're about to learn a lot about yourself in the next few moments!
Here's the correct picture, the one you were trying to see with your psychic abilities:
THE CORRECT PICTURE
And this is the correct one! Now we need to talk about how you determine your psychic potential.
This test will fall into one of three categories (Hit, Miss, and Pass) depending on which picture you were describing. If your paper is describing the Hot Air Balloon picture (the correct one), mark this test as a "Hit". If you were describing the Pyramid (which means that you knew what the correct answer was, but decided to describe the other one, anyway) mark it as a "Miss".
If you were nowhere close to either one, chances are you were distracted while you were trying to view the two pictures with your Quantum Subconscious. Mark it as a "Pass".
II. How those vile Skeptics view Precognitive Remote Viewing
If you actually thought you could see the future (and your fragile self-esteem simply can't handle the grim truth) just stop reading. In fact, go away and die, because Logic is about to EAT YOUR BABIES!!!
This method of testing for Precognitive Remote Viewing actually demonstrates:
1: How amazing the human brain is at seeing similarities.
2: The Texas Sharpshooter logical fallacy.
Q.E.D., new age morons!
But let's not just whisk away an entire industry just with the Texas Sharpshooter fallacy. Let's show you the fruits of these tests:
Person A got:
Hits: 325 Misses: 210 Passes: 391 Total: 926
Person B got:
Hits: 41 Misses: 22 Passes: 39 Total: 102
Person C got:
Hits: 80 Misses: 42 Passes: 76 Total: 198
(I got these figures from the PowerPoint presentation that Marty Rosenblatt, from the P.I.A., used during his lecture.)
let's look at the percentage of total hits, shall we?
Person A: 35%
Person B: 40%
Person C: 40%
Given the high possibility of getting hits anyway, it seems odd that the percentage would still be so low. And, if Precognitive Remote Viewing, like Mr. Rosenblatt was suggesting, is an effective tool our government can use for finding enemy military installations (or we can use with our investments in the stock market), 35%-40% seems a little too low to be reliable.
What I'm about to say, at least to me, proves that this is a complete scam... and the P.I.A obviously knows it.
They DON'T COUNT PASSES!!!
Let's say that again, just to make everything clear:
They DON'T COUNT PASSES when they calculate their accuracy!
This means that the accuracy looks quite a bit better... in fact, too accurate to be a coincidence:
Person A: 61%
Person B: 65%
Person C: 66%
Gee, if they ignored Misses, too, the numbers would be even more astounding.
