Purpose of the RPK Experiment

(Updated May 22, 2013)
The blog posts below are a running account of an experiment that began on August 14, 1965. It has taken this long to get it this simple and for technology to be available.

The present design is a descendant of the 1980s "PK Party" (spoon bending) developed by Jack Houck. Its purpose is to experience and explain the phenomenon of remote psychokinesis and to understand its uncertainties.

We are attempting to produce an NCR (non-consensus reality) event in a CR (consensus reality) frame of reference in order to learn how to apply what physicist/psychologist Arnold Mindell calls The Edge between Physics and Psychology in his seminal work Quantum Mind, published in 2000. We believe that this process will lead us to a more mature understanding of our physical and psychological capabilities, which will in turn help us develop deeper social responsibility for our planet in terms of raising our individual and collective awareness. We believe that this will help transform societal attitudes from ideological needs to subdue, dominate or control each other or other beings of all kinds (animate and inanimate). We believe that this can happen only by partnering and supporting each other in raising our mutual awareness in creative ways.

RPK setup as of April 30; Updated: 10 May 11

RPK Setup as of 30 April  2011
On a shelf in the upper left is the surveillance chamber housed in a light-tight box made of white Baltic birch wood with sliding door.

Directly below is the surveillance monitor showing a four-quadrant screen. The lower left and right screen quadrants display two live views of the hanging objects taken by cameras set at a right angle. The upper left quadrant is blank, while the upper right is unexplainedly dark. (This is supposed to be a live view of the setup taken by a webcam positioned in the room's ceiling.)

To the monitor's immediate right is the black box recording system on top of which is a webcam taking a live picture of the monitor screen for the Internet.

In the center of this photo is the stand-alone PC tower that is connected to the Internet. To its right is the monitor of the setup as it appears to viewers accessing it with ID and PW.

Below is a recent shot of the Admin screen of current viewers (edited) of the biofeedback (BFT) setup. This needs to be updated since the power-outages of October 2010 and February 2011 during which data were lost. This accounts for most of the blank areas in the menu titled "Last connected".
