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."

Letter to RPK Phase 2 influencers

The three objects

To: RPK Influencers Extraordinaire!
Bless you all for staying the course as we all managed to get through Round One of Phase 2 of the 3-object RPK Experiment! It has taken 6 months!

I had hoped to consolidate results this week to share with you all. But since my Navajo tech, Terry, is out of town this week (whose expertise I need to copy all your electronic runs onto memory sticks or disks to compare the electronic record with your respective log notes) I am delayed in producing a final report. There continues to be puzzling effects, which need to be accounted for.

A few days ago an RPK blog commenter named “Oracle” remarked that he/she was frustrated by having her/his smart phone misbehave while trying to communicate telepathically with a friend while texting at the same time. This gave me pause. When I asked Anita if she had similar experience, she said yes and with more than one friend. This may be an effect we need to be alert to in considering the above-mentioned puzzlings.

Am also having misgivings, not only about the current Night Owl surveillance equipment, but my own competence in understanding the settings. A few casual comments by some of you and others commenting on my RPK blog post have caused me to re-evaluate the internet-connected electronic approach. All this will need to be discussed with others, such as physicists George, Mike, Dean, Ed and Quinn. 

Finally, last night I had a surprising 5-hour conversation with Larry, a newly discovered author right here in Los Alamos, who has written “Searching for Mind over Matter”, which has given me a whole new perspective (from a background of psychology and electrical engineering!) on this experiment. My sense is that Larry’s insights and experience will have much to say about redesigning Phase 3, should we want to continue that direction. I introduced him to the existence of the Exoconsciousness community, which he was unaware of.

More next week when Terry returns.
