Remote Viewing 2010 Masthead

UPDATE MAY 22nd 2010: Our thanks go out to all of those who participated in this experiment. The experiment is now closed. Results will be made available by June 20th 2010.

Between January 4th 2010 12pm and May 21st 2010, PSICAN is running an "open to the public" Remote Viewing experiment... where we want you to give remote viewing your best shot.

Continuing reading for full details.........


What Is Remote Viewing?


As defined by Paul H. Smith: "Remote viewing (RV) is a skill by which a person (a "viewer") can perceive objects, persons, or events at a location removed from him or her by either space or time. In other words, one does not actually have to be there, nor does one need any so-called "physical" connections, such as television, telephone, etc., to gain information about the target. RV exploits and improves upon what is more commonly called "psychic" ability (an overused word that has accrued unfortunate connotations), and works whether the target is in the next room or on the other side of the planet. Neither time nor any known type of shielding can prevent a properly-trained remote viewer from gaining access to the desired target."

While Remote Viewing can trace it's origins back to ancient times, it was during the 1960's through 70's that RV experiments were being conducted by both the US government and civilian research organizations such as the ASPR. These studies provided fascinating results despite the CIA having released in 1995 a research report stating that RV was not an effective intelligence gathering tool.


PSICAN's 2010 Remote Viewing Experiment:


As this experiment is internet-based it will for obvious reasons not be following the strictest of scientific-based protocol. However, we do feel that it should provide some interesting information, and will be useful in determining whether or not we shall be pursuing more scientifically-rigorous experiments in the future.

The experiment will follow the "coordinate remote viewing method" or CRV. The envelope we are using, (a standard white mailing envelope 24cm x 10.5 cm -or- 9 1/2" x 4") was given the target # 40728 (as determined through a random number generator... see below...) which is written in black marker on the front...

The Envelope



The item which we are using for the viewing (the item we want you to tell us about,) was then inserted in the envelope, sealed with the seal signed by PSICAN director Matthew Didier in red marker to ensure it is not tampered with...


Sealed with a Signature


The envelope has now been placed in a secure location.

We ask participants to focus their thoughts on this geographic location where the envelope marked #40728 is being kept...

A warehouse in Toronto, Ontario (in the former city of Scarborough, Ontario,) at geographical coordinates 43° 46' 60 North and 79° 15' 0 West.

The envelope is on a wooden shelf, approximately 12 feet up from a concrete floor. The shelf is unfinished wood held supported by a metal frame. It shares the shelf with some large empty cardboard boxes. The room it is in is illuminated by florescent lamps.

We can not provide any photos of this location (interior or exterior) as we do not wish to give anything away in terms of exact location... although this information, it should be noted, may not be directly related to the item in the envelope.

If you wish to help us out with our experiment and be a part of this test, see what you can detect as to the contents of the envelope based on the information and anything else you feel is helpful and click the link below... and remember, there are NO "right or wrong" answers, as all data is very helpful and relevant!

PLEASE NOTE: Only one entry for help per person before proceeding. Open to international residents. Findings and results will be posted in mid-June 2010. We thank all of those in advance for their participation.
