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."

RPK Experiment, Phase Two: A Fool's Errand?

UC Berkeley trained physicist Dr. George W. called me on May 6, 2018 to discuss my conversation with Caroline C. the previous Sunday (4/29) after having suggested earlier that morning that she and I get acquainted. It was uncanny timing--again.

To explain: after closing down the RPK experiment in March 2018 and sending the equipment to the University of Utah archives with suggestions for a phase two (should anyone be interested), I received a call from George, who had originally called me from his office in the Philippines in August 2013, after becoming aware of my experiment via the internet. He wanted initially to show me his own live version of what he called “telekinesis”, which was something I had been stubbornly, but unsuccessfully trying to do for over 50 years! (He had actually been trained to do this years earlier by Russian teachers at the St. Petersburg Bio-Sensory Institute!)

After George's original 2013 call and my witnessing (via Skype) his telekinesis device: a small, thin paper-like object slowly twisting on a fine silk thread inside a transparent "cone" on his office desk (while he continued talking to me!), I wondered then in my amazement if continuing my version of psychokinesis (PK) was now anything but a fool’s errand.

Nevertheless, something prompted me to stay stubborn. The significant difference between our two approaches brought a deeper sense of insight to my mind, although I could not yet verbalize it. (Even so, I kept remembering our first attempt in July 2009, where there had been an unexpected, apparently massive, but scattered result! See: https://rpkexperiment.blogspot.com/…/first-remote-pk-party.….)

After the above-mentioned first attempt at RPK on my apparatus at my place, we abandoned the "party" approach and focused on having a single "influencer" attempt to move just one of the two objects that were suspended within a closed, light-tight, air tight box, containing two motion activated cameras at right angles to record any movement at any time, without regard for witnesses and open to being viewed via the internet to viewers with ID and password. 

In December 2013, after reviewing George’s and my versions on my RPK blog, friend Kyra Kitts suggested she thought she could make mine work after all when she learned that George could not do so when he came to my home in October 2013 to inspect my setup. Kyra and I then worked out a new protocol. See: https://rpkexperiment.blogspot.com/2013/12/rpk-system-reactivated-temporarily.html.

Using the new protocol, Kyra's attempts became critical because of her attitude of openness. During one of her sessions she succeeded in actually moving one of the target objects without affecting the other! No one else has yet been able to do this, among many around the world who had attempted to do this in real time bio-feedback terms. Although the successful effect of one of her sessions was small, it was clearly detected and recorded by the equipment's movement-activated cameras. These data are now on the equipment hard drive currently at the U of Utah special collection archives. 

[NOTE: I was unsuccessful in copying that hard drive evidence onto a disk or thumb drive to present in this space. That will require someone more tech-savvy than I to access and operate that hard drive.]

To be continued... Phase 2 protocol suggestions
