JNLRMI, Journal of Nonlocality & Remote Mental Interaction
NONLOCAL INTERACTION AND INTERCONNECTIVITY
In this short report, we bring you another source of scientific information on various aspects of life physics. We focus here on:
The Journal of Non-Locality and Remote Mental Interactions (JNLRMI)
JNLRMI is a free online journal offering its readers a forum for the scientific investigation of our human potential. Based on current research in physics, parapsychology and complementary medicine, and drawing on the discipline of meditative arts such as qigong, the discussion will revolve around the nature of space-time, causality, and individual selves; focused intentionality as a tool for shaping personal and social reality; the cultivation of mental energy and "psi" abilities; and the creation of global resonance to ensure a peaceful, meaningful and humane future for our planet.
The function of JNLRMI is to:
1. create a network of physicists, biologists, physicians, healers and consciousness researchers to identify the frontiers of our theoretical understanding of nonlocal mental interactions
2. develop concrete proposals with respect to the possible mechanisms and dynamics of nonlocal communication
3. pool our experimental expertise and equipment in order to design and carry out innovative protocols based on these proposals
4. promote this area of research to the scientific mainstream
5. establish contacts with potential sponsors for future experimental studies
As mankind winds down its survey of the globe and its cultures, there seem to be but two directions left to our restless sense of adventure: the exploration of outer space, with its implicit quest for other worlds and civilizations; and that of the Mind - or our inner dimensions. Both ought to be pursued in parallel - for while space offers us continuing challenges and inspiration, it is only through the mastery of qi, our mental and spiritual potential, that we will ensure a fulfilling future for our species.
What we propose, therefore, is that we look at this Mind - not with the neuroscientist's eye, not with the theologian's eye, but from the pragmatic point of view of, say, a martial arts student trying to cultivate his/her inner abilities. Joseph McMoneagle, one of the first and most prominent "explorers" of Remote Viewing, has eloquently argued that the discipline and mind frame required to make any significant progress along this path is very much like that required of a serious martial arts practitioner: in fact, he jokingly calls it "RV-do". The cultivation of an ego-free attitude, perseverance, objectivity, open-mindedness, an ability to accept failures no matter how great one's skill, and a healthy, playful curiosity that keeps one looking ever-forward - these are, recognizably, not only the marks of a good qigong student, but also those of a good scientist.
We will therefore adopt the metaphor of martial art for the exploration of what we believe is both a new science and a new ethics: as physics, parapsychology and complementary medicine converge upon the mind's hidden dimensions, let us re-think the discipline and aesthetics of our daily lives.

This is an evolving list of topics addressed in the present and coming issues. "It is based on what we perceive to be the critical questions around which future research should be organized, and (we hope) it will allow our readers ample time to articulate their views on subjects such as:
- known effects on physical and biological systems
- modulators and characteristics: distance, shielding, feedback, directionality, reversibility
- measurable correlates (see more in II)
- directionality and specificity: beyond the homeostatic paradigm; the role of imagery; experimental directions
- current observations: can we draw any conclusions about the substrate of intent?
- target "lock-in": is there an intuitive confirmation? What we know about subject-target resonance
- imprinting intent: the memory of water, phantom DNA, healing adjuncts and surrogates
- intent as a probability perturbation instrument
II. An experimental basis for psi
- pooling technologies in parapsychology and alternative medicine
- measurable correlates of psi function
- biological structures as signal processors (cell membrane liquid crystals; microtubules, DNA and other biopolymers; the hydrogen-bonding of water)
- what is the basis of brainwave synchronization and physiological changes ("super-ESP") in distant healing and DMILS?
- energy blueprints, bioinformation channels and "jump-starting" healing processes: the connection between physical/emotional trauma and "body memory"; DNA expression, morphogenesis and morphogenetic fields: where does the signal begin, and what is the connection to mental intent?
- bioemissions: the key to stadardizing psi effects? Can biophoton measurements be used as the experimental basis for psi variables? Transfer of bioinformation through biophoton transfer
- revisiting the ELF theory: the Earth as a cavity resonator, project Tesla, and the problem of non-attenuation; the Schumann frequency as "healing frequency" across cultural systems; thalamic silent phases, brain entrainment by environmental frequencies, and the question of global resonance (the Global Consciousness Project)
III. Time and causality paradoxes
- retro-psychokinesis, or turning causality on its head
- precognition versus remote viewing "bleed-through": what does it tell us about the nature of time?
- the transactional interpretation and other "solutions" to the quantum puzzle
- Barbour, Deutch and the vision of a frozen masterpiece: if time is illusory, what is the meaning of action?
- does psi require a reinterpretation of space-time, a new fundamental force, or only further investigation of our cognitive hardware?
- psi energetic theories versus the problem of non-attenuation
- target specificity and the nature of correlations
- the spacetime/mass-energy equivalence: is consciousness next? PK interactions with fundamental forces and their implications
- the measurement problem in QM, parallel universes and intent: are we simply choosing our favorite scenario?
V. The healer mind
- Is there a "psi protocol"? What mindset and techniques are conducive to the enhancement of psi function, which are the modulating variables, and what is the range of success we can expect in the average population?
- what is mental focus: relaxation versus concentration; how it may enhance psi function
- "syntactic rules" of guided visualization: are some techniques more effective than others? What is the ideal time profile (ie frequency, duration, local sidereal time) of application?
- lifestyle and the cultivation of psychic energy
- the future of medicine: when will mental techniques show up on prescription pads, and which are the first principles we should begin to discuss with our patients?
VI. The One-Mind model
- is there supporting evidence? (Mark Germine's model; Sheldrake's morphogenetic fields; the Global Consciousness Project; Grof's and Jung's accounts of transpersonal/archetypal memory activation; Savva's biofield transfer)
- the question of reincarnation: what are the limits of the "self"? (that should keep us busy for a few thousand years!)
- creating collective reality (Seth)
- Teilhard's omega point
VII. What are the social and ethical implications of this "new" potential?
- the new face of medicine
- forensic parapsychology
- an intuitive leap over the quantum abyss?
- shaping personal reality
VIII. Theoretical Approaches to the Psi Paradigm
- reviewing proposed models
- reassessing the "critical questions"
