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."

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

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

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....

To be continued....
