Non-spiritual Remote Viewer! Part II
Also the US government "Remote Viewing technology" (CRV-manual) can be downloaded in its totality for free on the net as it is now in the public domain. I find very interesting that this particular company should refer to "capitalizing on their concept of remote viewing". I checked their prices (well of course, after the good results I got from your courses, I was interested in maybe testing another method, so I wanted to see what their prices were). The two cheapest ones were 200$ each and they were for learning how to win at gambling and how to find your ideal mate (considering they talk about themselves as holding the flag for real, technical, "traditional" RV, I found those titles a bit out of the RV-repertoire though a fun idea in itself). But to buy those you were first required to take the two previous courses, 500$ each. (The second course was said to cost 700$ but if you had purchased the first one at 500$ you'd get the second one with 500$. The only oddity here being in my mind that you were supposed to have gone through course number 1 before you were allowed to buy number 2, there's no way you could order the second one for 700$! Very noble in my mind to give a discount that doesn't really exist)
Even the basic prize of 500$ per course is a lot lot more than the Academy of Remote Viewing asks for RV and RI put together. So the question rises of course who is capitalizing here? You need to pay at least 1000$ to go through their course, to begin with. That is not a small sum of money.
Also if they talk about you specifically as being greedy I wonder... When I approached you I had no extra money and wanted to hear if you had any used courses that you might sell cheaper. What you answered was that if I did a diary on all my experiences with the course, you'd give me the RV course for free. No matter how I try, I can't see this to be a very greedy act. You didn't even know who I was, but were ready to give your course away as a gift in return for something I would have done anyway - a diary of my experiences. This request on its own proved to me that you were really more interested to see how well your methods work. I remember the vivid discussions we had on my results. You were not pretending to be interested. You WERE intensely interested.
And about "latching on the RV-term to garner credibility from the scientific acceptance of a program that got its start in the confines of military intelligence." Well, I'd say if this company accused others of doing this, then it is exactly the same thing they themselves are doing. They did not invent RV. None of them were in military RV units. They are using certain methodologies in their approach to the skill. You are also using a methodology (which BTW after combining it with the RV and RI courses that you teach and using some aspects of the army manual I find to be efficient and working). Besides, referring to "scientific acceptance"... Is it really there? As far as I remember, there is quite a debate going on whether RV is "legitimate" or not, or "scientific" for that matter. The question still lingers: was money wasted on programs like Stargate and Grillflame etc? So the only thing really you can rely on are the results. You put yours on display. People's feedback with real email-addresses. Anyone can contact them and check their experiences. You are not in between there, trying to control what is said. Quite honest behavior in my opinion.
