Here’s my theory on how remote viewing works, using quantum mechanics concepts. Please Google any terms you aren’t familiar with for supporting information.
First, we must accept the three-dimensional space we perceive is holographic, meaning matter as a physical phenomenon is purely perceptual. See Holographic Universe theory. Matter is no different than thinking of a sound and hearing it clearly in your head. Physical space and objects are not fundamental. They are only perceived, and we perceive them via a coherence of quantum data. Our lived experience is very visceral, but it’s just a coherence of data, residing in a higher-dimensional matrix. In abstraction, we’re like a computer video file.
All this data comprises the cosmic substrate, which is multi-dimensional, as described in M-Theory. The whole acts much like a computer hard drive, and wave-function collapse (the coherence of quantum data as we perceive it), is akin to creating a new file.
Einstein describes existence as states of relativity. We can think of these “files” as the relative coherences of quantum data through time. Importantly, “time” is a misnomer in this respect, as it’s just another term for relativity. That’s key to understanding how remote viewing works.
You may know it’s possible to recover deleted files from a computer hard drive. Remote viewing is like that. Some people call the cosmic equivalent the Akashic Records. I just call it data. I once heard someone describe the process of recovering deleted computer files like the card catalogue system at a library. Even if you take a book off the shelf, the card catalogue entry still remains on the hard drive. Quantum data behaves similarly.
As quantum data coheres and de-coheres (anything from me typing this post and then stopping, to the Twin Towers coming down), relative states are created. Like the library book, those data are not lost after de-coherence.
As an aside, you may have heard that all the cells in our bodies are completely replaced about every seven years. You may have also heard the matter used in cell regeneration could come from exploded stars. What if the raw matter data still contained information from the star and its previous uses? In addition to remote viewing, that may also explain the Starseed phenomenon. That’s another topic but it’s a good example of how previous relative states may also persist and manifest in our lived experiences, outside of remote viewing.
If we accept all the above, we can say human perception is just an expression of the cosmic substrate, and not separate from it. Thus, when a viewer is sufficiently “tuned” to the data repository (check out the research on neural activity during meditation), they can call “files“, or relative data-coherence sets, at will. The viewer is essentially mentally re-cohering the target relative state.
As another aside, in that respect, remote viewing is like watching and interacting with a re-play (not going back in time, because again, time is just data-relativity). That would explain why viewers don’t create grandfather paradoxes (referring to the time travel thought experiment about killing your own grandfather to prevent your birth).
