Diverse Perspectives: What Distant Healing, Remote Viewing, and the Afterlife Suggest About Nonlocality
Pamela Rae Heath
In the past, nonlocality was only of interest to religion and philosophy. However, recent advances in physics have brought the topic into mainstream science. It behooves us to understand what the possible implications of this could be. One way to get a sense of these, is to move beyond dialectics to empiricism by considering other processes that appear to involved a significant degree of nonlocality: distant healing, remote viewing, and (if channeled messages are to be believed) the afterlife. The latter is particularly interesting, as it is often spoken of as being limitless, without the normal boundaries of space or time. Controlled remote viewing is likewise able to access information across space and time, while distant healing can be time- displaced and occur at a considerable distance. We will briefly look at what insights these can give us, including what resulted when "the implications of nonlocality" was used as a remote viewing target.
