Psychic Silverware by Paul H. Smith

Welcome to the Remote Viewing/Remote Perception Blog

I promote a radical idea: That we humans are more than a mere collection of physical parts and processes. Why is that radical, you wonder? Since people first became able to think, haven’t  most of us, really, deep down inside believed that human nature was partly physical, yet partly “something else”?

From the days of the early Greeks, and perhaps before, there have always been materialists around—people who thought that nothing existed that wasn’t in some way physical. But since the 1950s or 1960s the certitude has grown that human beings are just complicated pieces of biological machinery—essentially “machines made of meat.” It has become the fashion, especially in science, to reject the idea that there can be anything to humans beyond what can be measured or explained in physical terms. Such thinking leads to an unavoidable conclusion—there is nothing in human nature that is spiritual, or non-physical, or psychic in the ESP sense of the word.

From my own studies and experiences, I know this modern “scientific” belief is mistaken—is its own sort of fantasy. I have discovered for myself that humans are “more than their physical bodies” (as consciousness pioneer Robert A. Monroe aptly and often put it).

This blog documents my own experiences, thoughts, and ideas from more than three decades as a military psychic spy, philosopher, and student of human perception and consciousness. Its main theme will be remote viewing and remote perception, but as I add entries you will also find posts ranging into broader areas of consciousness, intuition,  non-local knowing, and perception as well.  Grab a hold—the ride starts now….

(NOTE: The topic of ideograms is of most importance to those learning or practicing controlled remote viewing. But they are something that anyone interested in remote viewing should know at least a little about.  Recently, ideograms have become a matter of controversy in Facebook remote… Read more
