The Journal of Non-Locality and Remote Mental Interactions
"Knowledge, Discipline, Vision"
As of 06/01/2012, our new home is
Genetic Regulatory Architectures,
Past and Current Issues:
January 2002: Vol.I Nr.1
The function of JNLRMI is to:
1. create a network of physicists, biologists, physicians, healers and
consciousness researchers to identify the frontiers of our theoretical
understanding of nonlocal mental interactions
We look forward to everyone's contributions, as long as they are factual and well articulated (preferably in an article format). Research directions, practitioner insights and an emerging discipline of living are to remain the central focus of our discussion, and will be given publishing priority. For more information on the discussion programme, or to subscribe, please see below.
Journal issues will be published three times a year and will include the following sections:
1. Core papers and interviews
To submit an article or letter to the JNLRMI:
All submissions are assumed to be original and are copyrighted under � JNLRMI. However, authors may subsequently re-submit articles to other publications, provided they make reference to the original publication in JNLRMI, including date and issue designation. We welcome full-length articles, letters, brief comments, experimental ideas and related references (such as web-published papers, web sites and books).
You can enter your at www.emergentmind.org/contacts/contactinfo_post.htm (automatically archived) and/or e-mail them to Lian Sidorov at firstname.lastname@example.org HTML, .DOC and .TXT formats are preferred, but .PDF will also be acceptable in most circumstances. Articles and letters will be archived and retrievable under the EmergentMind.org keyword-searchable database.
As mankind winds down its survey of the globe and its cultures, there seem to be but two directions left to our restless sense of adventure: the exploration of outer space, with its implicit quest for other worlds and civilizations; and that of the Mind - or our inner dimensions. Both ought to be pursued in parallel - for while space offers us continuing challenges and inspiration, it is only through the mastery of qi, our mental and spiritual potential, that we will ensure a fulfilling future for our species.
What we propose, therefore, is that we look at this Mind - not with the neuroscientist's eye, not with the theologian's eye, but from the pragmatic point of view of, say, a martial arts student trying to cultivate his/her inner abilities. Joseph McMoneagle, one of the first and most prominent "explorers" of Remote Viewing, has eloquently argued that the discipline and mind frame required to make any significant progress along this path is very much like that required of a serious martial arts practitioner: in fact, he jokingly calls it "RV-do". The cultivation of an ego-free attitude, perseverance, objectivity, open-mindedness, an ability to accept failures no matter how great one's skill, and a healthy, playful curiosity that keeps one looking ever-forward - these are, recognizably, not only the marks of a good qigong student, but also those of a good scientist.
We will therefore adopt the metaphor of martial art for the exploration of what we believe is both a new science and a new ethics: as physics, parapsychology and complementary medicine converge upon the mind's hidden dimensions, let us re-think the discipline and aesthetics of our daily lives.
This is an evolving list of topics to be addressed in the coming issues. It is based on what we perceive to be the critical questions around which future research should be organized, and (we hope) it will allow our readers ample time to articulate their views on subjects such as:
- known effects on physical and biological systems
II. An experimental basis for psi
- pooling technologies in parapsychology and alternative
III. Time and causality paradoxes:
- retro-psychokinesis, or turning causality on its head
- does psi require a reinterpretation of space-time, a new
fundamental force, or only further investigation of our cognitive hardware?
V. The healer mind:
- Is there a "psi protocol"? What mindset and
techniques are conducive to the enhancement of psi function, which are the
modulating variables, and what is the range of success we can expect in the
VI. The One-Mind model:
- is there supporting evidence? (Mark Germine's model;
Sheldrake's morphogenetic fields; the Global Consciousness Project; Grof's and
Jung's accounts of transpersonal/archetypal memory activation; Savva's biofield
VII What are the social and ethical implications of this "new" potential?
- the new face of medicine
VIII. Theoretical Approaches to the Psi Paradigm
- reviewing proposed models
Access to the journal is free, as is our e-mail reminder (synopsis and news) for each issue. If you like, we can also add your name/website to our Participants' List: this, we hope, will foster a sense of community and create more of an "informal conference" setting for our discussions. The focus of our next issue will be announced at the time of e-mail notifications. Responses to previous articles and further comments on the subject will be published on a weekly basis.
