You don't have to be psychic to be a "remote viewer."
"It's not channeling or out-of-body," said "Cosmic Voyage" author Courtney Brown. "It's a shifting of perception through a mechanical method."
Brown said remote viewing is like being blindfolded and then dropped into Rome. Once you've arrived, the blindfold is removed and you can smell the smells and observe people walking around talking a different language.
Advanced remote viewers sometimes work alone, but they usually use a monitor. Brown said his monitor also is his instructor, a former high-ranking person in the U.S. military who wishes to remain anonymous (as do most people connected to remote viewing).
While in a non-ordinary state of reality, the remote viewer stays in contact with the monitor through verbal communication.
"The monitor guides you through your target," Brown said. "The monitor can tell you to do more things and gather information that you wouldn't think of on your own while in this particular state of awareness."
The mechanical method of remote viewing consists of seven stages in which the unconscious mind feeds information to the conscious mind in a way that is understandable. In stage three, for example, the remote viewer draws an initial sketch of the target. In stage five the remote viewer is instructed by the monitor to obtain details regarding specific structures, such as the furniture in a room.
Remote viewing is not new, Brown says. He thinks ancient seers were probably using remote viewing.
"But what they were seeing was explained in the context of their own culture, so they might not have really understood what they saw," Brown said.
Take Adam and Eve, for example. Brown said he saw Adam and Eve in a remote-viewing session, but they were not naked primitives in a lush garden. Brown believes Adam and Eve were extraterrestrial genetic engineers who were responsible for seeding the planet with a new species that evolved into humans.
One of the biggest discoveries Brown has made through remote viewing is that in subspace (a non-physical realm), linear time no longer applies.
"When you remote-view a past or future event, there's no experiential difference," Brown said. "You're just there. If you send somebody else back to that same event, they can actually find you remote-viewing them. So you become part of the past."
Brown said time doesn't exist unless you're stuck in it. He believes it's possible that some of the UFOs flying around may actually be piloted by future humans who are keeping tabs on what's going on in their past - what we perceive as current time.
"It sounds weird, but I suppose you could be watching a ship fly by and you, as a future human, could be in it," Brown said.
Only 19 remote viewers, mostly descendants from U.S. military programs, are trained. Many more viewers are needed because of the number of targets to be explored.
Our government, Brown said, has known the real story about UFOs and extraterrestrials for some time, courtesy of their remote viewers. Since he has the same information now, he understands why the government wasn't and still isn't sharing.
Brown said he's not particularly concerned about military retribution for publishing a book on a topic that was once considered top secret. In fact, he has actually become more sensitive to our government's handling of the UFO phenomenon.
