In response to the many questions we receive about remote viewing and the perception process, we have decided to post a Q&A series of articles to answer the most commonly asked questions. We hope you will enjoy it.
This is part one of a five part question and answer series (Q&A) on perception based remote viewing, also known as Solo ERV or SERV.
Each article in the series will contain frequently asked questions about perception and remote viewing.
We will address questions on a variety of remote viewing experience levels. Some of the questions will be for those new to remote viewing, other Q&A will be for experienced and advanced remote viewers.
Visit ProjectJedi.net for answers to questions you may have never thought to ask! If you have questions about remote viewing that haven’t been answered you can always visit the new open group on Facebook. So far I’ve seen a lot of friendly people there heavily interested psychic abilities, health topics and sharing knowledge.
You can view a sample video from the Project Jedi Remote Viewing Training DVD Set here.
From Ted Talks on YouTube: “Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding — she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.”
This video starts out mild enough, but be prepared to be moved by the powerful emotion. For those who have had a stroke, you may want to share this video with those who you feel “just don’t get it” when you have tried to explain to them what is happening to you.
You might be asking: What does having a stroke have to do with the question “Who Am I?”
A simple question, but if you have been searching you know there is no simplistic answer that can fit into one sentence. Jill illustrates her experience, her unexpected jolt from her ordinary routine of daily life, in such a beautiful way that you cannot help but question your reality from yet another perspective.
It is my personal opinion that you are not learning about the world around you unless you are provoked into even more questions. Wisdom is found along the path, not in the destination.
From Florida State University’s the “Science U” section:
1950’s to Present
A. Three important studies provide links between smoking and lung cancer:
1. On May 27, 1950 Journal of the American Medical Association: publishes first major study
2. In same issue, “Tobacco Smoking as a Possible Etiologic Factor in Bronchiogenic Carcinoma: A Study of 684 Proved Cases,” by Ernst L. Wynder and Evarts A. Graham is published.
3. A Sept 30 British Medical Journal, study by Richard Doll and Bradford Hill reports that heavy smokers fifty times as likely as nonsmokers to contract lung cancer
B. P. Lorillard introduces Kent cigarettes, with an asbestos filter. 1952
C. Dr. Ernst Wynder paints tar on mice backs and causes cancer—first definitive biological link in 1953.
D. 1954 Phillip Morris hires David Hardy to defend against law suit by Missouri smoker who lost larynx to cancer in 1954. Same year, Marlboro man created and advertised as “Delivers the Goods on Flavor”
E. “See It Now”—CBS—First television show on tobacco in 1955, which resulted in TIRC Tobacco Industry Research Committee
F. First Surgeon Generals report: Smoking and Health in 1964.
G. Marlboro Country ad campaign launched in 1964 as “Come to where the flavor is. Come to Marlboro country. Marlboro sales grow at 10% per year in 1964.
H. Women allowed to roll cigars in Cuban factories in 1960’s
I. Phillip Morris controls Miller Brewing Co. in 1969.
J. Surgeon General confirms link between maternal smoking and low birth weight in 1969.
K. RJ Reynolds Tobacco becomes RJ Reynolds Industries, Inc. in 1970.
L. TV ads for tobacco products banned in 1971
M. 1971 Cigarette companies begin sponsoring major sports events.

I wonder what a much older Don Draper would have to say when he found out there would be no more cigarette ads on TV…
Read the remainder of the 20th C. timeline as well as significant events dating back to 6000 B.C.
The Florida State University Research Foundation has an excellent section on their website for Tobacco Education called Science Tobacco & You. There’s a Hangman game that threatens you with tobacco tar instead of a noose. In the teacher’s edition of the timeline are highlights of tobacco history, from pre-15th C. to the present, nicely summarized.
There is a wealth of information on this website and it’s easy to become sidetracked. Before diving in, it might be a good idea to read the navigation guide, which explains what structure was used to amass the available information.
Science, Tobacco & You is based on the premise that science is a learning processes that involves looking, thinking, asking, and sharing. The organization of this Website utilizes this idea.

One aspect of remote viewing is developing good habits such as consistently eliminating current distractions and foreseeing possible distractions during session. But what about when there isn’t any practical way to rid yourself of environmental distractions?
What would you do?
I began my training very close to this bell. I timed my practice sessions to just after midnight and just after noon if at all possible.
I am trained in the methods available on the Project Jedi Remote Viewing Training 4 DVD Set available at ProjectJeDi.net
It is better to improvise, using the tools available to you, than to insist on ideal conditions in which to operate.
“The wind does not break the tree that bends.”
Several methods were discussed on the Project Jedi Remote Viewing DVD Training Set for creating a CRN (Coordinate Reference Number). You are not limited to these methods and you are encouraged to create your own reliable methods that work for you.
It is a good idea to be able to produce numbers sufficiently different from what you or others may happen to create and attach to an assignment. The goal is to have a unique number associated with every photo or cue assigned to a remote viewer.
By feeling comfortable using several methods that properly suit the purpose, you will be better prepared for non-optimal conditions (This is an example of the “no excuse” mentality for implementing RV for your own survival.)
When you have decided to introduce a new method into your preparations for obtaining random numbers for a CRN, test it out first.
Here are a few questions you should ask yourself about the resulting CRN: Is it truly random? Is it random enough to be used in emergency situations? Is it not random, but acceptable as a last resort? Will you actually have easy access to the needed materials when it comes time to create a CRN? Is the method simple and fast enough to be practical? Is there any way to streamline it? Do you like using it?
Practice the process without creating an assignment you will actually remote view. Have you found it good enough to use to make one or two CRNs when you have no other options, or is it better suited for creating batches of practice photo assignments? Do you feel confident in using it?
One common way to select numbers is by using an online random number generator. Many factors may stop you from creating a string of random numbers in the manner you are accustomed to, but don’t let that stop you from using acceptable protocols for remote viewing. For the moment, if you are reading this off of a website, an online random number generator is a completely viable option.
However, never put all your eggs in one basket.
What other “number generators” do you personally have readily available?
The quickest way to acquire numbers suitable for a CRN is to rely on knowledge of the date and time. This method creates a 12 digit CRN. The first half is the date, expressed as a string of six numbers representing the year, month and day in whatever order you usually use. The second half is the hour, minute and second, of the moment you looked at the clock, expressed in either civilian or military format.
Be aware that you do not have an equal chance of all of those digits being 0-9. You can further customize this number by replacing the first number of each six digit set with your initials or some letters from your name.

The latest from the UFO Phil website:
For Immediate Release
January 11, 2011
Colorado Springs, CO — A man who has gained notoriety by appearing on national radio shows like Coast to Coast AM with George Noory now says he wants to build a mountaintop version of Giza’s Great Pyramid. Phil Hill –better known as UFO Phil –claims ancient Egyptian pyramids actually served as massive stone “power stations”. Hill also says these monolithic generators were originally designed and built by alien beings.
On his website at http://www.ufophil.com and in a video posted on YouTube, Hill claims to be in possession of “secret blueprints and schematics” crafted centuries ago by humanoids from another galaxy. The blueprints allegedly reveal the formula for using an Egyptian pyramid to generate hydrogen gas, which can then be used to “power ships, vehicles and everything”.
In a 2010 interview on the popular nightly radio show Coast to Coast AM, Phil explained his plan to generate energy from atop Pikes Peak in Colorado. He also expressed his desire to “beam that energy to the entire world” free of charge. In January 2011, months after the original interview, UFO Phil revealed the power plant will generate hydrogen gas from a full-sized stone pyramid in the Rocky Mountains.
Hill has not given a firm timetable for the completion of his Pyramid. He says, “I’ve started on the foundation. But, I am waiting for the city to approve my permits.” Hill also admits the mayor of nearby Colorado Springs won’t return his phone calls.
UFO Phil is a published composer, documentary filmmaker and self-proclaimed “man of science”. For more information, visit the official website at http://www.ufophil.com.

There was a debate in the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for some time about whether the shrinkage observed in the hippocampus — a structure involved in learning and memory — was the result of the stress or was a vulnerability factor for the disease.
We know that high levels of cortisol — a stress hormone — can kill neurons. So you could argue that the stress and stress hormones that cause PTSD could also result in the reduction in hippocampal volume. This is the so-called neurotoxicity hypothesis.
On the other hand, individuals who get PTSD could have some underlying genetic or structural susceptibility, one characteristic of which could be an already smaller hippocampus. This is the so-called vulnerability hypothesis.
Researchers at Stanford have published a paper that adds credibility to the neurotoxicity hypothesis.
The researchers followed a cohort of 15 recently diagnosed PTSD patients age 7 to 13 over the course of 12 to 18 months. They tracked the sizes of their hippocampi at the beginning and the end of the interval using MRI images and also measured their cortisol levels.
The researchers found that over the interval the sizes of the hippocampi in the patients went down.
Our results support the hypotheses that PTSD symptoms and cortisol levels at baseline are associated with changes in hippocampal volume over an ensuing 12- to 18-month interval. Specifically, we found that severity of PTSD symptoms and cortisol levels predict a reduction in hippocampal volume from baseline to follow-up when controlling for pubertal maturation and gender in children with a history of traumatic stress. This is the first longitudinal study in PTSD to document an association between hippocampal changes with PTSD symptoms and with a marker of stress, cortisol levels. These longitudinal findings help elucidate previous cross-sectional reports of smaller hippocampal volumes in PTSD populations. Our results are also in accord with animal literature reporting on the neurotoxic effects of glucocorticoids in the hippocampus. Our results stand in contrast, however, with studies identifying hippocampal volume as a vulnerability factor. Although, this study was not designed to address the vulnerability factor hypothesis, our exploratory analyses suggest that hippocampal volume was not a risk factor for development of PTSD symptoms….
Our cortisol findings address a potential mechanism by which stress can alter the hippocampus. There is substantial animal literature demonstrating the neurotoxic effects of glucocorticoid in the glucocorticoid receptor-rich hippocampus. Glucocorticoids can also exert their neurotoxicity indirectly via accumulation of extracellular glutamate. High levels of glucocorticoids have been reported in children with history of maltreatment and PTSD. Elevated cortisol levels suggest that high levels of stress lead to activation of the HPA axis and cortisol production and that this leads to hippocampal toxicity, which results in poor inhibitory activity from the hippocampus unto other centers, such as the HPA axis itself. The putative neurotoxic effects of cortisol on the hippocampus may depend on at least 3 factors: (1) the developmental stage of the structure (the hippocampus glucocorticoid receptors density may change throughout development), (2) the level and sustainability of cortisol released, and (3) the severity and/or chronicity of the stressful events.
Other studies have attempted to follow patients with PTSD, but they have been done on older patient populations that have often had PTSD for much longer. This is a confound in the ability to measure hippocampal volume changes because chronic stress may not cause changes and stress that is far removed may have given the brain time to recover.
The recognition that stress does shrink the hippocampus rather than that a small hippocampus is a susceptibility factor for PTSD may have consequences in terms of patient treatment. In theory, we would like to short circuit the shrinkage of the hippocampus by some pharmacological means, or maybe we could improve function by providing cognitive training.
