Purpose of the RPK Experiment

Original post: 13 July 2009.
(Updated 17 July 2018: see PS below)
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.


PS. Rebecca Hardcastle Wright has given this experiment a clearer current explanation of purpose. In her Exoconscious Proposal: The Common Ground of Consciousness Science and Psychic Intelligence she writes "Today, extraterrestrial experiencers join growing numbers of vocal psychic experiencers: near death experiencers (NDE), out of body travelers (OBE), mediums, psychics and healers. Together these groups are urging, if not pushing, consciousness science to build a body of experiments and theories regarding consciousness as a non-local field. This growing psychic research has not gone unnoticed by classical scientists. Many of them are beginning to acknowledge consciousness as a fundamental field of reality... Exoconscious experiencers have living confirmation of the Extraterrestrial Presence. These experiencers have the potential to birth a social movement confirming the extraterrestrial presence. They have the power to propel the UFO/ET information mainstream in ways not possible with classical science."

David and Sarah Paolini join the RPK, Phase 2 Team

Posted: 2 January 2019

David and Sarah Paolini
Have joined the RPK, Phase 2 Team

Today (Jan 2) I received word from David Paolini that a system of four Night Owl HD USB Webcams are on their way to be installed in the space illustrated below.

I met David late last October at a conference in Albuquerque, in which Caroline Cory was a presenter.

Caroline Cory presenting, but having tech trouble. David Paolini is sitting on the floor directly below and in front of me sitting on a chair. The irony here is that David and I would not have met, had this tech trouble not developed! Caroline mentioned during her presentation that this was the first time in 20 years of making such presentations that she has had such a problem!

Below are three views of the RPK, Phase 2 device located in the northeast corner of my home office. This is where Round One will be launched, hopefully this month and part of February, which will consist of three to five runs to be attempted by experienced influencers. The final protocol will be developed once the system is fully set up and functional.

After Round One has successfully ended, the Phase 2 device (designed to be a stand-alone portable system) will be sent to a more permanent location in the Exoconsciousness community. There it will be used for screening, training and teaching purposes.
It is expected to join other PK experimental systems that exemplify other approaches.

Two webcams will be placed at right angles to focus on the hanging objects.

One of the four webcams will be focused on the hanging 3 objects from outside the clear cylinder, looking north. A second will be located beneath the cylinder looking up. The third camera will be set to view the overall NE corner as illustrated above. The fourth camera will be focused on a split screen monitor, connected to the internet, so that influencers have the private biofeedback option of viewing their respective influencing attempts.

To be continued as Phase 2 evolves...

RPK, Phase 2 Core Prototype

Posted: 15 December 2018
Updated: 19 Dec 18

Phase 2 Core Objects
Toy tennis, soccer & 
basketball designs

15 December 2018. Getting ready to launch RPK Phase 2.

Have decided to have some fun with Phase 2, Round One coming soon. (Intended launch date is January 15, 2019).

Since I don't want the five designated influencers to get bored, I thought they might want to play around with one or more of these three hanging toys during their scheduled individual runs. 

(Actually they aren't really balls at all, but are disks of eraser rubber for elementary school kids stuck together. There are three designs composed of 1" dia x 1/4" thick disks.) 

Phase 2 Core Prototype with hanging objects

[Notice that the tennis ball design is the heaviest object in the center, consisting of 3 disks glued together, hanging on a spring. The other two objects on either side (without springs) are a single soccer ball and a double disk basketball.

All objects are hanging on high strength nylon fish line attached independently from tiny holes drilled through a 6"x 6" x 1/4" cold rolled steel plate atop a 6" dia x 6" high clear plastic cylinder. (This keeps objects that are moved independently within the cylinder by external influencers from affecting each other.)]

19 Dec 18.

Long time friend Dr. Ed Storms helped me machine key components for Phase 2 of the RPK experiment in his well equipped Cold Fusion lab and machine shop in his Santa Fe home this past week. We are getting ready to launch Round One sometime this coming January.

BTW, as Ed machined these items, his own LENR (low energy nuclear reaction) experiment in the above photo was successfully producing excess energy.

This prototype RPK device will be a stand alone, portable system. After it checks out in my home, it will be sent to a permanent place to function within the exoconsciousness community with whatever upgrades are suggested by the results of Round One [involving five separate runs by five individual, experienced influencers].

Discussing Round One of RPK, Phase 2 experiment with Caroline Cory

Posted: 2 December 20018

Dinner with Caroline Cory, Birgitta and me at Albuquerque Hotel Chaco
On October 26, at a Stargate to the Cosmos conference in Albuquerque, Caroline and I met to discuss the current status of the RPK, Phase 2 experiment, for which she is one of the five designated "influencers". 

This stage of the experiment is intended to develop a screening and training device for teaching skills in remote psychokinesis. We are hoping to launch Round One in early January 2019. Caroline will be stationed for her at-a-distance participation in either California or Utah. The other four potential influencers are in Southern California, New Jersey, South Africa and Albania.

Reviewing RPK, Phase 2 redesign with Quinn

Posted: 9 October 2018

Eugene and Quinn Marksteiner

I've been frustrated in redesigning the Phase 2 by including all the feedback I've been getting from good friends and respected scientists who have taken an interest in this project.

LANL's Dr. Marksteiner is one of these enthusiastic physicists and has been aboard since the beginning in 2009. In considering changes needed in upgrading Phase 2, he now suggests three (!) hanging objects with compelling reasons. 

I'm now busily working up a new bill of materials needed for Step 1 of the new protocol.

FB Note to RPK Influencers

Eugene's Lament of 22 Sep 18 on FB

Written on FaceBook on Saturday, 22 Sep 18:

To my current RPK influencer friends in California, South Africa, Albania, Utah, Arizona and New Jersey, 
I am soooooo sorry to have missed an important international Zoom conference call this morning with Rebecca Hardcastle Wright, et al!!! Such an unfortunate SENIOR MOMENT! I had been looking forward for at least a month to participating in the latest "Mastermind" discussion with the newly developing Institute for EXOCONSCIOUSNESS and to report on the latest design change for my RPK, Phase 2 experiment and updated protocol.

Again, sorry for the delay in contacting you all before launching Round One of the new protocol. This time we will have more fun in getting this back online! You'll see.

Until later, please be patient with this old guy!

24 Sep 18. And then this morning I happened upon this anonymous handwritten note to a general FB audience:

FaceBook Note on 24 September 2018

It had been posted by [Phase 1] influencer Kyra Kitts, and I immediately responded: 
Oh, Kyra, how timely this message is for me at this very moment!!! 
To which she replied: 
Zhenya, I’m so glad! You are an amazing being. You deserve miracles and recognition, my real friend.

Sometimes, as this, such synchronicities exemplify the "real magic" that Dean Radin describes in his newest book. I had only moments earlier finished talking to fellow scientist friend Ed Storms about the four-part synchronicity example that Radin mentions in his book on pages 82-85/260, that Ed and I are reading and discussing in the Kindle version. 

Given my senior moment lament of 9/22, I needed this!

Conversations with Dean Radin

Posted: 17 September 2018
Updated: 19 Sep 18
Dr. Dean Radin
On September 15, 2018, Dr. Dean Radin and I became personally acquainted for the first time on a first Skype call. In that first conversation we discussed his new book, 

"Real Magic: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe", which I'd just begun reading.

Then we scoped out who else, besides us two, was working with PK, especially micro, macro and 'massive' RPK. This included George Weisman, Mike Weliky and Caroline Cory. 

In our second Skype call on September 17, Radin asked about my technical background and how I had come to develop my RPK experiment concept, beginning as far back as summer 1965. He was particularly interested how my current RPK design had evolved, which began with my solicited USAF proposal at Eyring Research Institute (ERI) in Provo, Utah, in 1978-79. Even though that proposal went unfunded, it eventually led to Jack Houck's invention of the now well-known "PK Party" in the mid 1980s. 

(Jack had been one of the anonymous referees of my USAF ERI proposal. In the mid '80s he and I would become personally acquainted in Southern California, where I had become engineering manager for a small aerospace firm and mutual friend, physicist inventor Bob Beck, from ERI had introduced us. I and several of my sons participated in some of Jack's early PK Parties.) 

Radin then concentrated on my RPK, Phase 1, and the details of the one and only successful "strike" that had taken place in summer 2015 in Los Alamos (affected by influencer Kyra Kitts while in San Luis Obispo, CA). As Dean concentrated on how specifically the two hanging objects had moved, during that singularly successful event, he asked a question that had never occurred to me. Q: how were the two objects connected? A: through the lid!  

It explained the secondary slight "bouncing" of the second object just a second or two after the primary object had "swung" in a pendulum movement. That is, although the two hanging objects were separated from each other in the transparent core container, they were nevertheless connected through the container's lid, which allowed for a mechanical transfer of movement up the tiny stainless steel spring of the primary object to the lid and down the spring of the secondary object a second or two later. 

Dean then asked if I had the recorded evidence of this event and if anyone else had observed it. Yes, one person, LANL physicist Quinn Marsteiner, who had helped me build the motion-activated camera monitoring system in 2009. The video results were clearly recorded on the monitoring system's hard drive in 2015, which I had sent to the Special Collections archives of the University of Utah in April 2018, after deciding I was done with the experiment. Unfortunately, I had not known how to capture that video evidence off of the hard drive of that recording system before shipping the now crippled Phase 1 equipment to the U of U.

Two questions remain: 
1.) where will Phase 2 be located 
2.) how will the new system be re-designed (i.e., Protocol Step 1.0)?

To be continued on next post: serendipitous Skype call from a new participant yesterday evening (Sep 18), who lives in SLC and who may be able to recover the video data from the hard drive of Phase 1 equipment now at the library archives! If he succeeds, I will post that link here.

Sep 19: PS. If anyone wishes to comment on this or any other blog post on this thread, I am having difficulty figuring out how to allow comments to register herein. Pending my overcoming this problem, please feel free to email me at enkovalenko@gmail.com.

The Concept of Mass vs The Nature of Consciousness

Posted: 8 September 2018
Updated: 16 Sep 18

Jean-Pierre and me

Saturday, 8 Sep 18. Good friend  Jean-Pierre Julian, assistant professor of physics at Grenoble University in France, met me today for a couple of hours at the local Film Festival Coffee Shop.

Jean-Pierre comes to the Los Alamos National Laboratory once or twice a year on a consultancy assignment and usually looks me up. We met several years ago at the local Russian Orthodox parish, having been introduced by our mutual Orthodox priest friend, Fr. John Hennies (now retired and living in South Dakota). 

Today we discussed our respective brushes with mortality and then Phase 2 of my RPK experiment. Jean-Pierre is one of several credible international scientists with whom I can discuss such subjects. 

Saturday, 15 Sep 18. We met again at the same place before he leaves for home on Monday. This time we discussed a new book I'm reading by Dean Radin, chief scientist for Institute of Noetic Sciences, called "Real Magic: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe". It was interesting for me to better understand Jean-Pierre's religious experiences (as well as mine!) from the perspective of Radin's use of the term "Real Magic" as differentiated from the typical pejorative use of 'magic' in use in our society today, meaning "illusion, skilled deception, sleight-of-hand", etc. Take the "c" from magic and wonder about its ancient use....
