Applications: The 1973 Remote Viewing Probe of the Planet Jupiter - Rings around gotta be crazy!

Connections Through Time - Issue 21:  October  -  December 2003

Swann (April 27, 1973): "Very high in the atmosphere there are crystals, they glitter, maybe the stripes are like bands of crystals, maybe like rings on Saturn, though not far out like that, very close within the atmosphere. I bet you they'll reflect radio probes. ..."

(See below for sketch of Ring in raw data.)

Time (March 19, 1979, p. 86):
"Coming within 278,000 km (172,400 miles) of the swirling Jovian cloud tops, the robot survived intense radiation, peered deep into the planet's storm-tossed cloud cover, provided startling views of the larger Jovian moons and, most surprising of all, revealed the presence of a thin, flat ring around the great planet.  Said University of Arizona Astronomer Bradford Smith: 'We're standing here with our mouths open, reluctant to tear ourselves away'."



 Session Sketches by Ingo Swann


The Jupiter Probe experiment took place in 1973 at Stanford Research Institute (SRI).  Ingo Swann was the remote viewer.  Dr. H.E. Puthoff and Mr. Russell Targ were the primary experimenters.  The following is from the report written by Ingo.

PURPOSES OF THE EXPERIMENT: (1) To try to ascertain if long-distance remote sensing could extend to a very far distance; (2) to record the time it took before impressions began to be given, and (3) to compare the impressions with published scientific feedback.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE EXPERIMENT: A far-distant target and the expectation of scientific feedback.

TARGET SELECTED: The planet Jupiter.

FEEDBACK EXPECTATION: Technical data and analyses drawn from information telemetered back to Earthbase from NASA spacecraft and which information would be published in scientific media: the Pioneer 10 and 11 "flybys" of 1973 and 1974, and the later Voyager 1 and 2 probes of 1979.

DATE OF EXPERIMENT (#46 in a series): April 27, 1973. The first Jupiter bound NASA spacecraft, Pioneer 10, was already en route to the planet, but yet too far distant to send data back to Earthbase, principally at Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL).

RAW DATA YIELD OF THE EXPERIMENT: (1) One standard 8-1/2" x 11" page containing three drawings; (2) two and 1/6th pages of verbal data recorded and transcribed.

The first reactions to the Jupiter Probe experiment were universally negative, including those of the sponsors. The core of the problem was that the raw data included mention of rings and mountains. Prevailing scientific wisdom as of 1973 against the possibility of Jovian rings and mountains was quite adamant at the time.

Both the rings and the mountains have been verified as well as a long list of other predictions - see the report for the details of the original transcript and a synopsis of the 14 predictions now confirmed by scientific and technological feedback.  We will not repeat that information here, but we consider this a must-read for anyone interested in remote viewing.  The only ones who should not read this document are those skeptics who already know they will not change their attitude toward remote viewing.

Ingo clearly took the point of view while doing this session that he, at least his consciousness, was at the site in present time.  For example, the following is from early in his RV session where he has already identified a "planet with stripes".
    6:06 "So I'm approaching it on the tangent where I can see it's a half-moon, in other words, half-lit/half-dark.  If I move around to the lit side, it's distinctly yellow toward the right.
Since Ingo was, of course, experiencing the information in the present, it was and is quite natural to communicate the info in the present tense.  Precognition may still be at play, since some of the info that Ingo acquired could be from the confirmatory data obtained many years later.  Possible sources of information are the astronomer quoted above who first witnessed the Jupiter ring data, and/or a future manned mission to Jupiter, and/or Ingo's own paper on the RV probe of Jupiter that has now  been read  by  many  people..  

Precognition is based on conscious experiences, which always occur in the present, being potentially available throughout all space and time.  This means that future conscious experiences are available in the present for "probing" by consciousness.  Thus, talented/trained individuals can essentially go wherever consciousness has been, or will be.  So, Ingo Swann's consciousness effectively visited Jupiter, and precognition may have helped him get there!

This viewpoint is another way of referring to a "conscious universe" or a "holographic universe" or a universe where the unconscious/subconscious mind has access to all and communicates with the conscious mind, etc.  The primary advantage we see to this viewpoint is that in designing a new application, intentions can be focused on future feedback channels.  And, as future feedback becomes actualized, this feedback can be viewed as part of the source experiences feeding the initial remote viewing sessions.  We believe this approach will serve to more closely link the entire application into a successful unit.
