Remote viewers are able to close their eyes, focus on a person, place, or scene, and receive impressions about it instantaneously. The target could be thousands of miles away in a sealed box or envelope or in the same room in a box or envelope. It demonstrates that in the greater reality, there is no space.
The most remarkable characteristic of remote viewing is that it is testable instantly. The remote viewer can be asked to describe an object, picture, or scene thousands of miles away by just having a number or other code associated with the target. The remote viewer's accuracy can be checked immediately. Remote viewing has been demonstrated to be accurate in a multitude of sessions.
The account that follows describes Glenn Wheaton's response to a skeptic who wanted proof that Mr. Wheaton could remote view something inside an envelope. The skeptic's name is Hideyuki Kokubo, a Japanese researcher. This is the description of what actually happened. It contains Mr. Wheaton's sketch along with the picture Mr. Kokubo had concealed in the envelope. The author is Dick Algire, a member of the The Hawaii Remote Viewers' Guild. He refers to the video that was taken during the challenge. Photographs from the videos are available at this link: http://www.hrvg.org/newsletter/2002-08/feature.html . Other observers were also present during the challenge, eliminating the opportunity for contamination of the results.
On December 4, 2001, a Japanese researcher named Hideyuki Kokubo visited members of the Hawaii Remote Viewers' Guild in Honolulu. At one point he had Glenn Wheaton in front of a video camera, and handed Glenn a target envelope, a pen, and a sketchpad. "Work my target?" he asked.
The envelope had a target ID written on the outside: SEA-NTQ. That is the only information given to Glenn. With the video camera rolling Glenn sat down and began not a full remote viewing session, but a demonstration of "tagging."
In the first still frame from the video you can see Glenn preparing to work. He was given absolutely no frontloading. The target was sealed in an envelope and known only to Hideyuki. The target could have been any event, location, building, person, anywhere on earth.
Glenn begins "sweeping" the blank sheet of paper with his left hand. As he does this he closes his eyes and looks on Blackboard for a visual ideogram - a one and a half second glimpse of the target.
He begins sketching the outline of a face. Within about 3 minutes he states, "It's an old woman."
As he works Glenn executes quick "spontaneous ideograms" on the page and then probes them for data about the target.
Another quick probe to retrieve data, and details about the woman emerge. Glenn states that she is a Japanese woman, and that she is between 83 and 89 years old.
Glenn struggles to draw the hair the way he sees it. He describes the hair as "old woman style."
Still trying to draw the hair just right, he says there is a lot of white in it. It is wispy and fine. He gestures that it is curved under at the neck and ears.
After working for about 10 minutes he is finished. The target, he states, is an elderly Japanese woman - 83 to 89 years old, very smart, with gray/white hair.

And this is the photo that was in the target envelope. Hideyuki later said, "I was very impressed. I was trying hard not to show my amazement. I have no doubt as to Mr. Wheaton's psychic abilities."
Remote Viewing Objects
Source: R. C. Hogan, Ph.D.
Dr. Hogan, author of this Web site, has done remote viewing for a number of people to demonstrate that it can be done. In 2004, Dr. Hogan did a series of remote viewing sessions for Bill Walker, Senior Software Engineer (Distinguished Member of Technical Staff), at Avaya, Inc. You can see Dr. Hogan's remote viewing at this link to Bill's Web site (http://home.comcast.net/~wjjw/rv-sessions.html).
I learned in 1998 that I had remote viewing ability. Since then, I have demonstrated it for people regularly. Bill Walker, a software engineer, asked me to demonstrate remote viewing for him. I knew that he lived in New Jersey somewhere, 600 miles from me in Illinois, but other than that and his name, knew nothing about him. In a series of sessions, I viewed a variety of objects he placed on tables, and viewed objects in the environment around the tables. You can see the results of the sessions at Bill Walker's Web site (see above link). Three examples from the sessions follow. Bill walker took pictures of the objects and placed my sketches with the verbal descriptions next to the pictures.
Remote viewing by others, especially Dick Allgire

These sketches were produced under blind circumstances. The viewers were given meaningless sequences of letters that represented a picture stored away from the viewers' sights. They were not able to see the pictures until all had drawn their sketches. What follows is the sketches alongside the targets.
This is the quotation that precedes the Hawaii Remote Viewers' Guild presentation of the pictures:
These are images produced by viewers during their training at Hawaii Remote Viewers' Guild. All the work was done blind, which means the viewer was told nothing about the nature of the target. Viewers are given only a target ID, which is a random set of letters and/or numbers signifying the target.
Critical examination of the studies of remote viewing
AN ASSESSMENT OF THE EVIDENCE FOR PSYCHIC FUNCTIONING
Professor Jessica Utts, Division of Statistics, University of California, Davis.
In fall 1995, Professor Ray Hyman (University of Oregon) and Dr. Utts prepared a report assessing the statistical evidence for psychic functioning in U.S. government sponsored research as part of a review done by the American Institutes of Research (AIR) at the request of Congress and the CIA. The study that follows is taken from that report.
7. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
It is clear to this author that anomalous cognition is possible and has been demonstrated. This conclusion is not based on belief, but rather on commonly accepted scientific criteria. The phenomenon has been replicated in a number of forms across laboratories and cultures. The various experiments in which it has been observed have been different enough that if some subtle methodological problems can explain the results, then there would have to be a different explanation for each type of experiment, yet the impact would have to be similar across experiments and laboratories. If fraud were responsible, similarly, it would require an equivalent amount of fraud on the part of a large number of experimenters or an even larger number of subjects.
What is not so clear is that we have progressed very far in understanding the mechanism for anomalous cognition. Senders do not appear to be necessary at all; feedback of the correct answer may or may not be necessary. Distance in time and space do not seem to be an impediment. Beyond those conclusions, we know very little.
I believe that it would be wasteful of valuable resources to continue to look for proof. No one who has examined all of the data across laboratories, taken as a collective whole, has been able to suggest methodological or statistical problems to explain the ever-increasing and consistent results to date. Resources should be directed to the pertinent questions about how this ability works. I am confident that the questions are no more elusive than any other questions in science dealing with small to medium sized effects, and that if appropriate resources are targeted to appropriate questions, we can have answers within the next decade.
