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:

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."

Wrestling with RPK Phase 2 Protocol with Quinn Marksteiner

Event: 4 August 2018
Updated: 15 Aug 18

Quinn and son circa 2014

You may remember that it was Quinn, who was in on the first attempt at RPK in 2009 with Jack Houck and influencer Norma in California while Quinn, Birgitta and I were here in Los Alamos to work the experiment with each other over a telephone conference call. This was before we had added the movement-activated cameras because of the unexpected and apparently massive results on that first run. [See: https://rpkexperiment.blogspot.com/…/first-remote-pk-party.…]

It was Quinn who helped build the subsequent supporting equipment with motion-activated cameras and internet connectivity. And it was he who witnessed the one successful strike in 2015 by Kyra Kitts, before I shipped off all my Phase 1 equipment last April (2018) to the University of Utah archives, believing I was done with this experiment and leaving a note in the box sent to the university with suggestions about a phase 2, should anyone be interested to continue. I mean, I thought I was finished with it!
I hadn't counted on George Weissmann jumping into the project only weeks later via Skype and email, urging me to continue and introducing me to other influencers, beginning with Caroline Cory and Rebecca Hardcastle Wright, which pulled me back into phase 2 sooner than I had dreamed would happen.
It was fun to introduce Quinn to Caroline Cory's E.T. Contact film and Rebecca's Exoconsciousness work, which was all new to him. So, I was eager to have him rigorously review DRAFT 3 of the protocol, which we spent all afternoon doing today (4 Aug 18).
That is the reason for this post, my friends. Quinn had much to say about how we should restructure the protocol, which I hadn't thought of, so that the experiment can withstand the skeptical scientific slings and arrows that will inevitably come flying after we launch the new protocol.
