Book Summary by Jed Bendix

   Rene Warcollier, who Joe McMoneagle refers to as the “father of remote viewing,” was a French chemical engineer and parapsychologist. When WWI broke out across Europe, Rene soon found himself in the army, carrying a gun and heading toward the frontline.

Lucky for Rene and us, the French were in need of chemical engineers. After the French army realized their mistake, they gave Rene different orders, which kept him well away from the frontlines.

   One of Warcollier’s friends and associates was Dr. Charles Richet. Dr. Richet received the 1913 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for his discovery of the anaphylaxis reaction. In 1918, Dr. Richet helped form the International Metapsychic Institute in France. With the formation of the institute, Rene and Dr. Richet started doing research together in the field of parapsychology.

   Warcollier’s intent was not to prove the existence of ESP. American and British researchers had proved the existence of telepathy he believed. Rene wanted to show what takes place during telepathic communication of drawings. Moreover, to discover what laws govern telepathy.

   During his research, Rene developed three concepts crucial to understanding and performing ESP. The concepts involve: models of the mind, information transfer, and signal-to-noise ratio.

   “Models of the mind” refer to certain mindsets people cultivate and how they perceive reality. This includes emotions, ideas, sensations and mental images.

   “Information transfer” recognizes how a telepathic signal is broke-down and reassembled between sender and receiver. Transmitted information is broken-down into bits and pieces and sent through the space-time continuum.

Additionally, the process includes how the reassembling of this information takes place in the receiver, and how the “meta” or subconscious mind of the receiver makes the information available to the conscious mind.

   “Signal-to-noise ratio” can be defined into two segments. First, “signal” refers to the information transmitted. “Noise” refers to what distorts, dilutes, or disturbs clear reception. (Note: Warcollier and his associates identified sixty different aspects of telepathic signal noise.)

   When examining the data regarding telepathic research one can see different aspects at work. These include: parallelism, latency, dissociation, analysis, synthesis, syncretism, movement, pragnanz, emotional factors, and imagination.

   “Parallelism” is described as an inclination of similar telepathic impressions or pieces to cluster according to likeness. An example would be telepathic transmitted geometric figure of a square. The receiver would not receive the image in his or her mind’s eye as a square with straight lines.

Instead, what may be received are two or more right angles scattered in space. It is as if the subconscious induced movement into a stationary object. This would be successful telepathic reception.

   Why did the receiver mind’s eye see two right angle lines in space? One explanation is that our telepathic memory has no trace of a specific geometric figure such as a rectangle or circle. Instead, within us there resides only angles and arches. These elements align themselves in an assortment of positions. It is a way for an image to group itself together in a “parallel” pattern.

   Latency means to have a time lag between the transmission of a thought and its reception into some type of form in the receiver’s mind. This delay can be several seconds to minutes to days or weeks.

When an impression comes into consciousness the timing of it depends upon the receiver’s own rhythms, incentives, and needs drawn from his or her own personality. Sometimes “latent” images will overlap one another forming a colossus of an image.

Example, a target of a circle is
sent followed several minutes later by a square. The “latent” image of the circle will superimpose itself upon the square.

   Dissociation is the methodical breakdown or separation into parts of an image. Reception is due to consecutive discharges of the elements of the telepathic image from the receiver’s subconscious into his or her conscious mind.

These discharges do not resemble specific thoughts or after images, but are forms that convey themselves in a symbolic representation rather than discernible thoughts. An example would be of a receiver clearly drawing the image of a shoe. However, the receiver would not realize that the target was a shoe even after drawing it.

The target remains masked to the receiver even after successfully drawing it. This is due to a series of strong signals that come in bursts to the receiver and only bits and pieces arrive one at a time.

   Analysis also called fragmentation is the breakdown of an image into pieces without regard for its visible elements. The receiver emotional issues can bring about this breakdown or fragmentation. For example, imagine the target is that of the planet Saturn.

When the receiver attempts to draw it, the rings suspended above, and with a transmission shaft showing rotation below. Another example of analysis is that of an inverted image. A black object appears as white and a white object appears as black.

   Synthesis is the restoration of a complete image from pieces or segments. “Synthesis” frequently unites separate components taken from the original drawing, which are not acknowledged as pieces to the receiver.

An example would be a target of a circle with a noise inside it. One possible scenario is that the receiver draws a picture of the circle but puts the nose outside it. Another possibility would have the receiver combining or drawing into one part of the circle a representation of the nose.

The receiver is unaware of both objects. However, the two separate drawings together create a representation of the target.

   Syncretism is the inclination to gain a complete sense without differentiating the pieces or distinguishing the details. Sometimes the telepathic messages are received not in pieces but globally.

There is completeness to the picture even though the arrangement and the separate pieces remain indeterminate and muddled. For example, a winged bat could be a target. The receiver simply draws a man wearing a robe with his arms spread out.

   Movement implies activity. Additionally, it means there is a tension in the pictures received by the mind’s eye. Repeatedly, in telepathic drawings, there is manifestation of “movement” and it often has supremacy over other aspects of what is apparent. A windmill might be received as “spinning around.” This impression of spinning may also come before the appearance of any visual images.

   Pragnanz is a Gestalt principle that states all organized processes tend to be as good or complete as possible. Gestalt theory attempts to comprehend the wholeness quality or structure of each insight or response.

With “pragnanz” the relationship between the target and its background are important for the overall impression. An example would be a target of a watch on wrist. The receiver would draw the watch along with part of the wrist.

Another example would be a target of a house with the sun shinning down on it with heat rising off the roof. The receiver would indicate the sun, house and as well the concept of heat rising.

   Emotional factors are important to the remote viewer. Each individual has different emotional states related to life events and stimuli. Different “emotional factors” are the main reason no two remote viewers working on the same target will respond to it the same.

This is because the target has been filtered through the subconscious or meta-mind of the receiver. The receiver, due to a target’s strong graphic nature, may repress or totally omit it. Imagine a car accident as a target.

One receiver working the target may be able to draw the bloodiest details. However, another receiver working the target would omit the accident scene altogether and may draw a happier outcome.

   “Imagination” is when certain elements of the target seem to stimulate certain associated memories. The memories that have been stimulated then come into consciousness. For example, a remote viewer works a target showing flowers at sunset.

The scenic beauty of the target stimulates a memory of the remote viewer, which he incorporates into his drawing. This associated memory may be a scenic waterfall, a picture from a previous read book or a person whom the receiver associates with beauty.

   Telepathy and language. To quote Warcollier, “Telepathy is a means of communication without words. When language is used, it is highly symbolic as in dreams, and the impressions are frequently condensed into linguistic symbols that conceal the basic telepathic message.” Here is an example of how transference of a telepathic target written in language will transmute into symbolic form.

The written target is “Minneapolis.” The receiver may respond in one of two ways. First, the receiver may produce a visual memory of the city of Minneapolis. However, maybe the receiver has no previous memory from upon which to draw.

The more likely scenario is the mind will produce a symbolic form of association with the word “Minneapolis” like seeing in the mind’s eye “miniature apples.”

   Telepathy and thought. To quote Henri Pieron, “In its elementary form thought represents nothing more than successive evocation, by means of mnemonic mechanism, of sensory impressions of images, more or less completely revived…

One individual will think chiefly with the coordinating centers of the visual images; another will express this thought in speech; still another will listen to his inner thought as if to speech, using solely auditory and verbal images.”

   Another way to understand thought is to think of it as a learned behavior.

   One study shows thought does not depend upon language. Moreover, most telepathic communication takes place in picture or symbolic form. When a receiver draws on paper his impressions of a target, the drawing is not a thought, but it is the best representation of the remote viewer’s thoughts.

An example from the book best describes this symbolic nature of language. Additionally, it shows how we as humans label or name objects, due to our need to separate the items in our environment. A clear case of this involves the aborigines. “The Australian Aborigines call a book ‘a mussel’ because it opens and shuts like the bi-valve.”

   What this all boils down to is this: telepathic transmission and reception between the sender and receiver both are dependent on their memories, behaviors and emotions to form a symbolic picture of what is sent and how it is received.

   In conclusion, to study telepathy is to study a symbolic form of language. I should note, only a very small percentage of individuals can receive actual words sent telepathically. Warcollier’s research helped unlock the laws governing telepathic communication and that it is not without flaw, largely due to individual models of mind, signal-to-noise ratio, and the process of information transfer.

Rene was delighted to discover telepathy does allow us to become aware of a connectedness to all living organisms. Even if the message is late (latency) in arriving, it still carries the impact that a wondrous event has taken place.
