    IRVA Board Directors Dale Graff & Debra Katz explain the framework for a new initiative that will promote & support research.

    IRVA 2020 – Extended Remote Viewing - Dreams and Synchronicity

    The reality of remote viewing (RV) and other forms of psi indicate a fundamental principle exists that activates and synchronizes these occurrences. This principle has a global and possibly cosmic reach, and can be detected by examining sequences of events during psi/RV projects. To illustrate the existence of this synchronistic principle, I review the remote viewing, precognitive dreaming and intuitions that occurred during a month long search for General Dozier during his abduction by a terrorist group in Italy in 1981. Other experiences are reviewed consistent with the synchronistic principle when finding family roots after 100 years and timely incidents canoeing in the Arctic. I also consider an alternative perspective involving interaction or synchronicity with “the future.”

    IRVA 2018 – Psi Dream Vigilance

    This presentation begins with a review of my three unusual dreams on the same night in July, 2017 and how they correlated with personal associations, previous psi dreams and a First Sight Theory (FST) perspective. FST is a concept recently proposed by James Carpenter, First Sight: ESP and Parapsychology in Everyday Life that considers psi as a primary sense that links with subliminal perception and memory as an integrated ongoing subconscious process with a main goal of species well-being and survival. I was certain that these three mysterious dreams were significant and resulted from my focus on psi dream vigilance but could not understand why they occurred. Two days later an unexpected email solved the mystery by providing information on one of Ingo Swann’s dream scripts and some of his paintings. It was sent by Maryanne Bilham, producer of a documentary about Ingo Swann. She was seeking comments on his dream script and paintings from a dream consciousness point-of-view. Two on my three dreams closely resembled Ingo’s dream sketch and dream narrative. One dream correlated with the symbolism in one of his paintings. I discuss the subconscious factors of why these dreams may have occurred and the symbolic aspects of some of Ingo’s paintings from a Jungian perspective. The presentation concludes with the relevance of First Sight Theory for evaluating dreams, the value of psi dream vigilance and considers how certain dream imagery may provide insight into the psi process.

    IRVA 2017 – Dream Remote Viewing Workshop

    Can you dream your way to accurate remote viewing data? Dale Graff and Nancy Smith will guide you through a two-part interactive workshop that explores how the dream-state can be used to RV. In the first session, participants will be given the background necessary to do a simple dream-RV session, and assigned a target. That same evening, they will go to sleep intending to collect relevant information about that target. On the conference’s second day, a debriefing session will take place, and target feedback will be provided!

    IRVA 2016 – Tomorrow’s News Today: Can Information Flow Backwards in Time to Affect us Now?

    Can remote viewing and psi dreaming reveal emerging worldwide situations and present photographs that link with designated events? More importantly, is a continuous subconscious interaction between the future and the present an integral feature of the physical and mental universe? To answer those and related questions presenter Dale Graff and colleague Patricia Cyrus pursued a recent research project whose goal was to show that the psi process can present reliable information about future global events. They did this by exploring how a linking target protocol can create a usable signal that flows backwards in time retrocausally. Come hear how the results of this recent series of 33 exploratory psi dreaming and remote viewing projects gave good evidence that information from the future did indeed interact with the brain’s cognitive processes in a time-reversed, retrocausal sense. In short, information appears to have flowed backward in time to affect the present. Come see striking examples of the session data and the targeted news photographs that did not exist at the time of the viewings but which, when later published, confirmed the perceptions of the research participants. As an added bonus, the presentation also shows how this time-reversed approach can obtain a signal from the future that can have a valuable impact on present decision-making.

    IRVA 2015 – Free Ranging In The PSI Domain

    PSI is a general term for a range of phenomenon with various labels that include remote viewing, precognitive dreaming, telepathy, synchronicity and some forms of intuition. This presentation reviews mental imagery that can occur during waking or dreaming experiences involving psi projects or during other types of awareness states. Understanding the cognitive processes that may be involved in their creation provides insights into some aspects of psi and how psi information is accessed and transferred or presented to consciousness in remote viewing or in dreams.

    My interest in mental imagery began in 1970 following a traumatic wilderness canoe journey in Quebec, Canada. I refer to this imagery as “mind movies.” These “movies” provided evidence of psi, including remote viewing.

    To explore the basis of these experiences I began a systematic study of a variety of mental imagery resulting from informal psi experiments performed with others and me as participants. I explain how these experiments with either target observer or double blind protocols using a variety of pictorial materials as psi targets provided some understanding of the cognitive processes and how imagery may be constructed from fundamental pre-existing blocks, or bits, of perception. Precognitive objectives, when the psi target had not been selected at the time of perceptions, provided additional insights. When the photos in future newspapers were psi targets, some of the photos did not exist at the time of the remote viewing or dream session.

    Synchronicity, or meaningful coincidences, as an aspect of psi may be a primary ability of our conscious/subconscious mind. A dramatic coincidence that occurred during recent travel illustrates synchronicity and precognition. I refer to this as “the incident at Harrisonburg, VA.”
    I conclude with a discussion of a potential quantum physics concept that could have relevance to psi, including remote viewing, and wonder if the various aspects of psi can be interpreted from a unified, universal holistic principle point-of-view.

    IRVA 2009 – Exploring the PSI Process

    Psi researchers seek statistical proof of psi phenomena, while psi practitioners pursue a variety of psi applications. But the independent psi investigator, who delves into aspects of psi phenomenology that often are neglected by others, also plays an important role. This presentation explores a variety of informal psi projects involving Dream State Psi (DSP) and Conscious State Psi (CSP)/remote viewing. These two alternative approaches to psi each give us unique insights and new perspectives into the psi process from both cognitive and quantum physical points of view. Specific and sometimes striking results illuminate some of the hidden variables that can help or hinder accurate psi perceptions. Most of the projects presented here come from recent work that uses a variety of pictorial target types, employs several different targeting concepts, and involves either currently existing targets or targets yet in the future. Most of the future targets were as-yet unselected photographs that would not be published until three to five days later on specific pages in certain newspapers. This presentation will hopefully lead to a lively exchange of ideas and generate much constructive debate.

    IRVA 2002 – A Review:Discovering RV at FTD Recent Intercontinental Distance RV and Psi Dream Experiments Illusions as Psi Targets

    Dale Graff became involved with the government remote viewing program in 1976 when he played a crucial role in its preservation, and was involved in the program in one capacity or another for the following 17 years. He will speak about some of the highlights of those times, including the remote viewing project that was the first to make the newspapers — the finding of a downed Soviet TU-22 bomber/reconnaissance aircraft in Zaire, Africa, when all other intelligence means had failed. Mr. Graff will also speak on his recent work involving ESP in dreams.
