Obviously a TV remote control.

One guess as to the most popular remote viewing topics. — Unsigned, by: 82.198.250.5 / talk / contribs

Attempts at remote viewing have led to contacts with alien Intelligences so there is an overlap into the channeling of Galactic Masters or Atlantean preists. Hamster (talk) 19:34, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Is there a link to a descriptive of 'the remotely viewed coffee pot (and whether the viewer will have to refill it)?' 171.33.197.73 (talk) 16:12, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Presumably this [1].

Cats, however, #do# have remote viewing - and thus know when you are opening their tin of food or suddenly start yowling at something that you cannot see. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 16:49, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

The historical arguments against[edit]

All that is needed for remote viewing to 'work' is a writing implement, a writing surface and 'an absence of distractions' - so if it did exist there would be examples throughout recorded history. What we have, however, is 'maps of the afterlife and other fantastical' - which cannot be corroborated from actual sightings.

There are also varying abilities to put descriptions given into visual form, and people who have learned enough about the aspects of particular environments and landscapes to be able to deduce aspects of an unknown equivalent. Anna Livia (talk) 10:07, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
