APPI awards prizes for remote viewing and announces a conference

Disclaimer: has no affiliation with APP. We just like what they’re doing. In October we wrote about the Applied Precognition Festival. Today, we’re publishing a follow-up and an  announcement of the next Applied Precognition Conference. This information was given to us by APPI.  Three remote viewers won cash prizes totalling $1,750 in the first Precog Pro Contest sponsored by the Applied Precognition Project Institute (APPI), a nonprofit organization, at the November “APP Fest” in Las Vegas. Contest winners were Henry Gilroy ($1,000 prize), Christine Umholtz ($500), and Joyce Wahlberg ($250). They successfully predicted the outcomes of seven football games and one horse race using precognitive remote viewing—a protocol for gathering information from distant targets using intuition rather than the intellect or the usual five senses. Henry Gilroy (center) earned a $1,000 prize with six hits (successful predictions minus misses/passes) on eight sporting event predictions. Christine Umholtz earned $500 for her second-place win with three (net) hits, and Joyce Wahlberg (pictured separately) claimed $250 with one (net) hit. Marty Rosenblatt (right), APPI president, presented the awards.  Joyce Wahlberg   The Applied Precognition Project (APP) will return to Las Vegas from June 22-25 to host the APP 2017 Conference. The conference theme is: Consciousness is FUNdamental, Remote Viewing: Health-Wealth-Wisdom. “This is our yearly opportunity to gather with friendly like-minded people, who are interested in expanding their consciousness and improving their remote viewing skills,” said Marty Rosenblatt, APP/APPI president. Speakers will include:...

CIA published STARGATE project documents online

Several days ago, CIA published 13 million pages of declassified documents online. Part of this archive are documents related to the Remote Viewing and other research into ESP that SRI (Stanford Research Institute) conducted in the 70ies. This program was known as STARGATE. Some of the most talked-about documents there are concerned with the testing that was conducted on Uri Geller, a famous and controversial figure in the world of both stage magic and psychic abilities. After conducting this series of tests, the researchers concluded that Uri Geller ”demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner.”...

Invitation to Applied Precognition Festival

Ready to have some fun learning more about your natural precognitive abilities?  At the Nov. 10-13 APP Fest in Las Vegas (Henderson), participants will predict eight sporting events, rub elbows with great speakers, and interact with people who have similar philosophies about psi. Three attendees will win cash prizes in the first “Precog Pro” contest ranging from $250 to $1,000, plus the opportunity to become a “professional precoger” with the APP Institute (APPI). Winners will be determined by subtracting the number of misses from the number of hits on predictions for seven football games and one horse race. “APPI – a 501(c) 3 foundation – wants to partner with people who have high, consistent and verified precognitive hit rates, “ said Marty Rosenblatt, APPI president.  “APPI’s current viewers have demonstrated reliable hit rates of 65 percent or better.” Establishing applied precognition as a profession is one reason APP and APPI maintain statistics on the group and personal level. Approved as nonprofit organization in February 2016, APPI is an offshoot of the Applied Precognition Project (APP). APP officially began in December 2012 with the mission to “publicly explore, research and apply logic and intuition/emotion to predict future outcomes, enabling participants to evolve personally while contributing to the elevation of global consciousness.” APP Fest speakers will include Jeff Mishlove, Steve Braude, Charley Tart and John Herlosky. Attendance at APP Fest is...

Double-Slit experiments with mind-eye observers explained

Dean Radin of IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences) with a great talk explaining the results and implications of the experiments that IONS ran for over three years. The experiments purpose was to see if the non-physical “consciousness” is the one that affects the results of the famous quantum mechanics double-split experiment. Participants were both advanced meditators and people all over the world, over the Internet. The results are very promising, with about 5 sigma of confidence that there’s is an effect. The effect itself is small but the implications are enormous. The talk is very approachable and easy to follow. Take the half hour and see...
