Book Summary by Jed Bendix
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.
One of Warcolliers 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.
Warcolliers 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.
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
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.
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 minds eye as a square
with straight lines.
Why did the receiver minds 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.
means to have a time lag between the transmission of a thought and
its reception into some type of form in the receivers mind.
This delay can be several seconds to minutes to days or weeks.
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 receivers subconscious into his
or her conscious mind.
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.
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.
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.
Movement implies activity. Additionally, it means there is a tension in the pictures received by the minds 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
Another way to understand thought is to think of it as a learned behavior.
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 viewers thoughts.
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.
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. Warcolliers 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.
