According to the United States Department of Defence “Remote Viewing is the learned ability to transcend time and space to obtain information on people, places and things, remote in space-time and to gather and report intelligence information on the same.” Their statement did not specify that the information is obtained by the human mind alone, using structured methods based on scientific research.
Coordinate Remote Viewing is often confused with Astral Projection or Out of Body Experiences, but they are not the same! Remote Viewers have trained the mind to obtain information from anywhere in space and time through application of a specific method and structure. We are not going to sleep or in deep meditation during a Remote Viewing session. You will be conscious, but in a flow, much like a person driving a car or playing the piano.
