RSPK and consciousness


Journal Article (Review)

We review some important RSPK cases and discuss physical theoretical concepts that may account for the phenomena. A major problem for the RSPK researcher has been to identify the energy that causes object movements. As a first step in understanding RSPK, Puthoff proposes that the agent makes coherent the random fluctuations of the zero-point energy (ZPE), a plenum of electromagnetic energy that fills space and interacts with gravitation and inertia. Joines has previously suggested that the RSPK process involves psi waves from the agent. The ZPE concept fills in the picture: Psi waves produce a coherent signal directed at a physical object and ZPE provides the energy for RSPK. In the light of the ZPE theory, Joines analyzed the attenuation effects in the Miami, Olive Hill, and Tina Resch cases. The best fit was the product of an exponential decay curve and an inverse distance curve, suggesting that the ZPE may be the connection between psi waves and electromagnetic waves. Friedan's theory, presented in his book Physics from Fisher Information, has implications for the understanding of how RSPK and psi information can be acquired by physical objects, including human observers and information taken to be a physical entity that can flow from one system to another.
