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.

Brown out data loss.

Posted: 6 June 12

On Monday, June 4, we had another lightning strike generated power outage at our home where the RPK equipment is located. This time it was a "brown out", which I'm told by experts can be more trouble than a "black out" for electronics. In our case all the BFT data was wiped out as far back as January 15, 2012. Bummer!

Fortunately, I had logged in all ID/PW data into the hand-written log book for participants that had viewed the system since then. I did have to re-enter all those ID/PWs, hoping that no one tried to view the system beyond what I have logged .

I will post all those viewings in an updated table below:

To be continued....

Something Unknown... The movie

Posted: 28 February 2012

"Something Unknown...."  DVD cover

A couple of nights ago Birgitta and I viewed the 2009 movie "Something Unknown is doing we don't know what..." that oldest son Nick brought to our attention earlier in the month.


I was surprised to know some of the people in the film, including Jack Houck, developer of the PK Party (spoon bending).

Nick replied,
 "...very interesting.  And now the powers that be claim that remote viewing (RV) is a sham. I think your whole history with psy was represented in that movie..."
I replied:
"Yes, you are correct about my "whole history with psy" being represented in that movie. Thanks for bringing it to my attention... Friend Jack Houck, Steve Schwartz and others are prominently presented! I didn't realize until this film that RV was used to locate Saddam! Who are 'the powers that be'?"
Nick replied:
 "Well, that was a quote from a TSA supervisor when he was shaking me down at the ... airport."
I replied:
Yeah, right.... LOL. See above pix and links.

Regarding Table 1.

Posted: 20 February 2012; Updated: 

Notice: From now on, this site will not accept anonymous entries. We took down and edited a long exchange with someone who originally identified as "Anonymous". From now on I will refer to him/her as "A.T." because much of the exchange was valuable to the objective of the experiment. That included "Table 1" that was generated during A.T.'s rigorous participation.

Welcome Rebecca of Logan

Posted: 11 Jan 12; Updated: 5 Feb 12  (See: Table 2)

My first attempt to move the red disk 5:41 p.m. CDT to 6:41 CDT 1.10.12. Here is a chart of the minute during which the red light came on beside the letter E in the lower quadrant of the monitor:

I saw a red light come on beside the E that is in the lower left window. My thought at that moment was that of the Butterfly Effect and I was breathing consciously and sending it to the red disk. I had been holding in consciousness the natal APPEAL of my Mean Node (Scorpio 24) in its outward activity, meeting the inward influence of Mars at RESOLUTENESS (Virgo 23) and where these two meet in reciprocity of influence -a unified message--in the present occurring transit. The crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one man-these are those who want to hear what he will say-those coming out from their high places to listen to the one in the valley of simple means, who simply would be heard. He is appealing and they are responding. Yet he must know illimitable patience and adroitness, as does the animal trainer. There can be no force, only encouragement and patience. He must simply keep doing what he is doing. He must be resolute in his patience that he will be heard and that what he is saying will eventually make a difference. Illimitable patience is that patience which cannot be limited. There is no negative association with it. Like God with us, his message is, "All is well. All is well." And so my thoughts and breath were this, "All is well. You, Red Disk, will move when you move. Until then, I will be resolute and patient in my appeal to you!" And I breathed. And the light went on beside the E. Equanimity! The synchronized meaning? Cancer 22, the breath (Ascendant):
A woman awaiting a sailboat:  EQUANIMITY - When positive, this degree is a sure insight into the meaning of chance events and the current drift of circumstance.(And when negative, senseless dependence on acidents of fortune.)
Creative poise and quiet range of perspective which give real power to the human soul, endowing it with its gift for sustained interest in the present situation and its constructive attitude towards each ramifying potentiality of things to be. Here man exalts his destiny as he is aware of the shps that may come in for him, and he learns that it is through the consummation of idea and not the pyramiding of facts that life achieves its more enduring reality.

Her third session:  0:31:01  1/12/2012 @ 16:47:50
Her fourth session: 0:22:59  1/15/2012 @ 21:56:15  (in cooperation with friend Ron)

Good morning, Eugene. Yes, we did the one viewing together on Ron's notepad. We saw the red light and white star appear three times during our viewing. We've had a wonderful time sight-seeing here! (It is my first time in NYC.) ...
On January 30, Eugene wrote:

Still pending is an examination of the MDV surveillance record to compare with Rebecca's and Ron's results of Table 2. Physicist helper Dr. Quinn M. is scheduled next Saturday (Feb 4) to help me with this.

In the meantime, I think I may have solved the puzzling artifact mystery on the MDV record! Last week during a most intense windstorm, I noticed the red recording lights of the MDV on and glowing. As I inspected the MDV video screen, both hanging objects were swinging significantly. The wind appears to be the culprit! It gets the house vibrating! I had not considered such an outer effect would have such a significant inner effect on our secure RPK system! 

Now, we have to inspect the MDV record to separate this wind effect from a possible RPK success. An RPK success would be when only when one object was moving and the other was not. Next Saturday, we will find out!

Rebecca, last night (3 Feb) my young physicist friend Dr. Quinn M. came over to help me examine the MDV record and compare them to the results of Table 2. We were excited that we might see just one of the objects moving, which would have been a major scientific event! Alas, there was no correlation. Even though the recording cameras had been triggered for reasons we cannot yet explain completely (wind on the house will trigger the cameras sometimes) there was no evidence of either of the objects moving at the dates and times given in Table 2.

A.T.'s last dance.

Posted: Friday, 6 Jan 2012.  Updated: Friday, 20 Feb 12

On Thursday, 5 Jan 2012, A. T. wrote:

Dear Eugene,
Please Activate my final ID and password I will try my final view tonight , I dont know what time..whenever God makes me wake up ..it would be my final view..Ask Birgitta to pray for me..If something happens, I want you to know my aim was making you happy and Accept it as a gift from me, thats all,,,and if nothing happens , please Pardon me for my disability...And please Dont ask me to view it again. [Emphasis added]

On Friday, 6 Jan, A.T. wrote:

Dear Eugene,
Despite your final ID/PW [it] didn't work like we agreed, but as I felt I was ready I tried since your 16;50 PM till 17 ;1 ..but nothing happened in your "RED" object while many things happened in this Red subject , here in [my city]...thanks for your project..it helped me to see my own "potential creative energy" in my recent dreams.

To this message I replied on that same date (1/6): 
...The first thing that has become clear is that you and I have come to the end of your participation in the RPK experiment and I thank you most sincerely for your willingness to participate to this point. I have learned much about the limitations of the system and how to manage it better. Because of this, I am downgrading the priority of the RPK experiment. Below is what I wrote last night:
I am surprised that you had problems with the "final" ID and PW. Are you sure you entered the correct ID and PW that I sent to you? Just to double check, will you please send them back to me exactly (copy and paste) as you entered them into your computer? Also, I see that you re-entered the same ID/PW for viewing #15 as for #14, which did work and I have added to Table 1. 
 My friend, it looks like you have become bored with the experiment. This I can understand. It is not unusual for scientific research experiments to encounter unanticipated problems. I have been working on this experiment since 1965 and still persist despite all the problems and puzzles encounterd along the way. This persistance is because of the way the idea struck me way back then when I was a nuclear scientist, which was similar to the flash of insight I had in the fall of 1960 for my doctoral dissertation thesis. 
A.T. replied at once (1/6, 11:15):
Dear Eugene,
I am glad you are glad..I was worried you are sad.I entered exactly the same ID/PW you wrote to me yesterday several times..when I saw your sacred code didnt work I became sad and I lost my high energy that I gathered through my midnight meditation at that special night only for the RPK,..then I enetred ID-8 but it didnt work eighter..then I sent a message to you that it didnt work and you didnt answered..I said "God I dont know why something such easy stopped me" but as I promised you to end my job, I connected by ID-7 again but it seemed red was laughing at my meditation..Eugene, I very much like you become successful..but I cant make you hopeful such you became about my ability thats why I ended the exam, I am not tired of working with you..it was fun for me.Consider the end of your dream , you will reach the abondance you need..I wish you were at room when I wanted to try,,I wish the final code worked..Isnt it strange it didnt work?..Whenever I ask something from my God he answers me easily, But I didnt ask him forcefuly to make me successful in this experiment, I gave the end to his own hands. Do you think I made mistake? I am not sure it was the end last night ..

And then A.T. commented Jan 6, 1:24 PM:
I will come back when I learn the dance rules better,,SEE YOU, my friend ...

A.T.'s Dance Continued

Posted: 1/3/ 2012;  Updated: 2/20/2012  (See Table 1.)

February 20, 2012:

Below are the results of a useful exchange with "A.T", who lives on the other side of the world. Because our exchanges eventually diverted from its original purpose, I felt it necessary to edit many personal exchanges, review the integrity of the experiment, and re-examine my own intentions. "A.T.'s" participation has been a healthy challenge and I hope one day we will take up where we left off. To use Robert Heinlein's famous concept, I am now in "grokking" mode, but still believe "A.T." has the potential to make this thing work.

Table 1 presents a running account of A.T.'s viewing sessions of the biofeedback (BFT) view of the RPK system, beginning with session #1 on 12/15/2011. Notice that there are several "undetermined" viewing time sessions (#3, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 12). This is due to an unsolved setup problem with the recording technology. To bypass this problem (or when I can figure out the extraction mathematics!), "A.T.", as the viewer must view the system using a series of one-time-only ID/PW codes supplied via private communication. If A.T. forgets this restriction and instead uses the same ID/PW again, an indeterminate number in column B is produced. If done correctly the viewing time in column D should be the same number as in column B.

If this restriction is too cumbersome to remember and track, we may have to reprogram the BFT system to limit all sessions automatically to one view only.

On December 26, 2011, I was on travel and A.T. decided to wait until I returned before resuming A.T.'s participation in the experiment with session #12 on 1/3/2012. A.T. has expressed participation in terms of a "cosmic dance" with the selected (red) object, to which I heartily agree. I believe A.T. will know when "Red" decides to join in the dance and we will then check the surveillance record. It makes a rather boring protocol become more interesting.
