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."

RPK Phase 2 four week equipment test run

Posted: Monday, 11 February 2019

LANL physicist Quinn Marksteiner came over last night to help me get a four-day test run going. (This is a Round One pre-launch exercise before involving five "influencers" in different parts of the globe in of Phase 2. )

It was Quinn's idea to have three hanging objects (instead of the original two identical ones in Phase 1). He had an important question about why I chose to make each of these three new objects different sizes (weights). I'll address that question later.

Phase 2 four-day test run in process as of Sunday (Feb 10) evening.

If you click on this picture to enlarge it, you may see that the cameras are recording. (See small square icon in lower LH corner of each quadrant.) The dark quadrant is because camera 4 is turned off.

Selfie with Dean on Skype, Monday, 4 Feb 19

My intention for this conversation was to vet a latest protocol for Round One of the RPK, Phase 2 experiment. We didn't quite get that far because of new questions from Dean about the design and a suggestion for including an accelerometer on the wooden housing.
