Subject: Personal Value in ARV Time Loops dennanm
I was thinking this morning about your ARV stuff and it occurred to
me to wonder about the personal value of a given outcome.
For example, I assume that the reason lotteries are difficult isn't
just because they're numbers, but because we have various belief
systems in the way of our winning the lottery. If we didn't, we
would ALREADY be winning the lottery or similar things -- with
alleged chance or luck being the determinor, not RV.
I find that risk of humiliation often inspires my ego to do better
about RV than I might otherwise, LOL. It's 'survival' I guess.
I asked Dr. Ed May about results-based outcome in psi. E.g.,
punishing the psychic vs. rewarding them depending on how they did.
I sound like an old Russian, LOL. He said plenty of that research
has been done -- it makes no difference. Hmmmn.
So finally getting to the point here, I wonder if -- apart from the
issue of RV itself (which we can't avoid) -- totally mundane,
meaningless things targeted in ARV, might have less 'resistance' that
could manifest in displacement, then things which DO have meaning to
the viewer, even mildly.
E.g., will someone else's mailman come closer to 9am or 11am; will
the vehicle parked in space X at Y date/time be blue or something
else; I don't know, I'm just trying to think of really boring, fairly
I am wondering if the general hit rate would be higher because there
is less psychology in the way related to the outcome.
On the other hand, it could be lower because one bored the viewers!

That's a good example of what makes the line of questioning so
difficult, because the categories effecting displacement are really
unbounded and viewer psychology would have to be presumed to be a
legitimate category. Unfortunately too, a correlation here might very
well fall into the category of things that can't be tested, predicted,
compensated for, or controlled.
I'm very anxious to get to the point where I will hopefully get some
yes or no answers.

Well Scott I admire your enthusiasm. I'm sure you'll get somewhere
with an answer if you keep at it, and those kind of answers can help
the entire field.
I seem to do badly, then better, then well, then I'm really excited
about how well I'm doing, and then it's like I fall off some cliff
where I'm just TERRIBLE -- to the degree that actually, the terrible
itself SO far exceeds chance, it is obviously a form of psi-missing
that is psychologically based.
I am finding the entire process to be pretty damned annoying.
I think I am going to go back to what I was doing the last time I did
this badly... I starting doing sessions that were 5 minutes long - no
longer than 10 minutes - about 5-8 in a row, every night, precog. My
goal wasn't depth of data it was just practice at diving into a
target, and practice at getting data quickly, and then letting go --
if it doesn't come quick, forget it -- to try and train myself
against the virgo-angst crap that often pervades my RV. Looks like
it is time for that again, sigh!
Let us know how your ARV goes. I have always been tremendously
interested in ARV, but generally feel it takes more than one person
to do and I work alone. I've read all of Greg K's pages but I like
his writing personality as well as anything RV-related he's doing. I
really do hope that what I call the 'layman researchers' will find
some answers that there is no funding in science to find. Given the
efforts made to prevent psi research, I think it will be a delightful
irony if after all that effort made to crush the field and prevent
research, a few inspired general public folks come up with various
keys that someday end up being part of blowing it all open. Proving
that you can curtain funding and you can intimidate educators but you
can't keep a good man down. ;-) So to speak!
