$3,000 prize offered for remote viewing research

The prize will be awarded to the best 'research proposal investigating some aspect of remote viewing.'
Organized by The International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA) in partnership with iRiS Intuition and named in honor of French chemical engineer and parapsychologist Rene Warcollier, the 'Warcollier Prize' is open to anyone regardless of their affiliation or academic background.

The IRVA was founded in 1999 to create an organization that would "provide a mechanism for evaluating the discipline called 'remote viewing', encourage scientifically sound research, propose ethical standards and provide overview educational information to the public."

Remote viewing itself is the alleged ability to see remote objects or places using only one's mind.

While the existence of such a concept remains unrecognized by the scientific community, declassified documents have revealed that the US government was once very interested in researching it.
Some claim that it was even used during the Cold War to spy on Soviet targets.

Researchers interested in applying for the Warcollier Prize must submit their applications by July 15th.

"Proposed research should directly involve remote viewing or investigate some aspect of human consciousness relevant to remote viewing," the briefing reads.

The winner will be announced on August 15th.

Nothing... The brain may fire electrical signals for a short time after biological death, but once dead, you will experience nothing.

This was really addressing how people consider the mind separate from the brain. The mind is the same as consciousness, the same as psyche and the soul are as well. Without the brain to generate this thing we call the mind (which is only 5% of us), there simply isn't a mind/consciousness.

How can anyone create a "reliable" test without it being tested by participants to test its purpose?  Unless the tests they have so far proved nothing, but that would not be because the tests are not reliable, it is because the claimants are.

Ah, I read your post differently.  I do agree 100%. Without a working brain, we would just be vegetable flesh bags.

Yep. The tests are so easy to design.

Considering that 95% of our lives are subconscious, we might end up as nothing but motorized instincts. Meh, who knows.

James Randi has done all this and even when someone actually got it right, it was NOT remote viewing, but very clever cheating. Here is how it was done Like all alleged psychics, their 'gift' is not in their psychic abilities, but in other areas.  Empathy is one 'gift' your normal bog standard alleged psychic has, and many do not need to try to hard to get the clues. The believers often do not realise how many clues they are giving, even before they open their mouths.

Didn't say they were.   I just explained it to you.  The eye test is still testing visual information interpreted by the mind.  A remote viewing test would also test visual information interpret by the mind.  Is that clear enough for you?

Really?  You don't mentally interpret anything you see?  bull****. You reading these words proves that the mind does interpret visual information Anyway it's the brain that constructs the visual information collected by the eyes, it's the mind that needs to interpret it.  In the case of remote viewing the information isn't collected by the eyes.
