What is it?
Remote viewing is the practice of consciously seeking out another location mentally; receiving images, sights and impressions of the location or object in question. Remote viewing is generally regarded as pseudoscience and has no scientific basis, how ever there have been some sessions with surprising results. Usually, a remote viewing session will have two participants. A controller and a viewer. The controller assigns a code to an object, and, focusing on the code, the viewer attempts to see what the object is.
Remote viewing is similar to astral projection. Both share the same concept of bilocation. Remote viewing differs however, as the viewer never loses physical consciousness, and can easily return to a waking state.
Remote viewing has been investigated for military purposes. The most well known programme Project Stargate, with aims to research the military potential for remote viewing.
