The sense of being watched
« on: March 05, 2016, 09:59:17 PM »
Rupert Sheldrake was interviewed on Joe Rogan's podcast a while back. Rupert talked about the sense of being stared at, and how people are able to detect when they are being stared at about 55-60% of the time, which he says has been repeated hundreds of thousands of times to reach a very significant effect. He said that children under the age of 9 show the most significant effect, and talked about when he tested his son Merlin at the age of 4. His son correctly detected when his father was looking at him 40 times out of 40 trials, 100% accuracy! His son wanted to switch roles and see if his father could do the same. Rupert guessed correctly 11 out of 20 times, and doubt was introduced to young Merlin. After that, Merlin was still able to tell if his father was watching him at a percentage better than chance, but nowhere close to 100%. This is certainly interesting in itself.

Rupert suggested further experiments to test this idea, such as using an empty 5-story building with closed circuit cameras on each floor. The subject would visit all 5 floors of the building, and an observer would be observing one of the 5 floors via the closed circuit TV. The subject would then have to guess which floor was being observed.

I would assume that the 5-story building experiment would show some kind of significant effect, even if it were a small effect.

Then I got to wondering, like with RV and other paranormal experiments like Dean Radin's and Daryl Bem's, if time would not behave as we expect. For instance, in Radin's experiment, the subject's stress response is detected several seconds before they are shown a disturbing image. In Bem's experiment, in which a person selects whether an image will be on the left or right of a computer screen, the subjects perform at chance for most images, but when the images are sexually explicit the subjects perform above chance. The interesting thing about Bem's experiment is that the computer does not select the image until after the person clicks on the left or right side of the screen. My thought regarding the building experiment is, what if the observer was not shown the CCTV video in real time, but after the fact? My guess would be there might still be some effect shown. That would certainly be interesting!

the astral double would probably arrive at the intended time hence a sensitive observer would pick it up. also, a sensitive staree would also be able to do that with clairvoyance alone.

I suspect if you make sure their hair is up and focus at the back of their neck;

And if you have the person watching be someone with a hostile relationship with the person being watched, or failing that, a sexual attraction to them;

results might be best.

In my totally informal what-I'm-sensitive-to it seems to happen with those dominants...

I think what is often left out of psi trials like this is making it MATTER.

Yes, I think the psi stuff is hard to bottle up in a lab for repeating results as well because it does seem to kick in more with stuff that matters, has more emotional kick to it, etc. instead of just being dry experiments. I read Sheldrake's book about the Sense of Being Stared At and found it very intriguing.
...I wonder if the reticular activating system of the brain-mind complex has something to do with it...the RAS, with non-psi factors, screens out a lot of material in the environmental input to keep us from being totally overwhelmed with input. We get used to some input as well that might seem jarring and bothersome initially...an example would be if someone lived near an airport, visitors might be bothered by all the jet noise that is really close by--but the people who have lived in the home for awhile may have become more accustomed to it.

Plodder: yeah, agreed.

I also wonder about the degree of this. In other words, in some models our 'energetic being' is vastly larger than our body. Someone 30 feet away (even if unknown to us as present, say behind a wall) might literally be "sharing" atomic space with us -- at least, moreso than someone 3000 miles away (I mean we might all be sharing, at a universe level where rocks are part of us too, but at some point it exceeds sane discussion, so I'm sticking to the more obvious limits). So maybe we are aware of staring in part because the 'attention' is actually part of us, too, not just of someone else.

There is an energetic dimension to staring. when you focus your attention on another person, you move a part of your energy on that person's body. many people recognize, consciously or subconsciously (getting agitated, movign around, hair standing up, ears reddening) that someone else's energy is in your space.

There are stories that long hair actually helps in this regard.  I read a story months ago about Native Americans losing their ability to "track" and sense enemies when they received regulation military haircuts.   Here is a similar article:

I wonder with heightened psi (it seems to ebb and flow at times for many, I think, as hardly anyone is at their best in any endeavor or skill every moment of every day) if some could differentiate a different sort of vibe from being watched physically, to being watched via RV or OOBE, to being watched via a hidden web cam or some other sort of technological means?

Probably tough.

But a reputable source said that each person viewing you has their distinct energy-signatures... so you would def know who it is. but perhaps not where. but guess its just a matter of skill.

Easy explanation.

All predatory animals including pets ... and children under the age of 7 are predominantly in THETA state. Children as they get older will mostly be in ALPHA, then older children to adults are always in BETA. THETA is where precog abilities are strongest. Now, adults can learn to be in predominantly THETA state. Takes lots of meditation.

Plus, I've always wondered why American RV circles are satisfied going into ALPHA state when there's better success while in THETA which is at the doorstep of the matrix in DELTA. Europe and Russia get deeper in meditation when they do their viewing from what I've seen. Too much interference with ALPHA.

* TEN THOUSAND ROADS REMOTE VIEWING AND DOWSING PROJECT

Since its opening in 2003, the TKR Project has created and sponsored online opportunities for Remote Viewers and Dowsers. We provide free information, and community for all viewers (of all psychic methods, backgrounds, experience, and perspectives on psi), and an array of software utilities and projects offering real-time viewing within an appropriate RV protocol.

The Ten Thousand Roads (aka TKR) project is independently managed and webmastered by a diverse collection of viewers from around the "online RV field". All viewers from all paths are welcome. Everyone has an opinion and don't think any you see represent TKR (even if volunteer staff, who are viewers too, say it) or the RV-subject or the RV-field: for every viewer with one viewpoint, there are many with different perspectives too. If you don't see yours represented, step up and add it!

Feel welcome to excerpt text or screenshots to communicate about the project or RV, and we always appreciate links back to us! Try this link:
http://www.dojopsi.info/forum/ for the forum, or
http://www.dojopsi.com/tkr/ for the hands-on viewing area.

Like free RV Stuff? Help make it happen for everyone.

* Quotable Quotes

This clearly indicated that belief and disbelief played some kind of psychological role regarding positive and negative manifestations of ESP. [ . . . ] That the basis for rejecting and debunking ESP might not reside in logic and reason, but in the fact that disbelievers were dysfunctional regarding it, came as something of a bombshell.
-- Ingo Swann
If you [...] don't speak up and shout down the skeptics, then it's YOUR nascent superpowers that are quailing before their ridiculous stupidities. [...] The WorldWide Web is yours, you know. Not theirs.
-- Ingo Swann
In other words, all of us are more the same than we are different. That we give overwhelming attention to our perceived differences gives rise to much of the human drama.
