|Abstract:||Remote Viewing (RV) using a multiple-agent/multiple- percipient design was attempted by a team of professional and amateur paranormal investigators. The study was divided into 2 stages. Each stage consisted of 2 parts: (a) a single-agent mode and (b) a multiple-agent mode. It was hypothesized that a committee of 3 agents would produce a stronger RV effect than a single agent. In both modes, a committee of 3 percipients was used. Stage 1 was run mainly to test the methodology, and for Stage 2 necessary changes were made to the percipients' visualization techniques. A total of 20 randomly selected sites were visited by the agent(s), and on each occasion, percipients privately recorded their mentations for each site, and the 3 mentation reports were then combined into a single report pertinent to each site (the mentations of individual percipients could not be identified in the combined report). Mentation reports were independently judged. In Stage 1, the directional hypothesis was not supported-the RV effect produced in the three-agent mode was not better than that produced in the single- agent mode. However, in Stage 2, the directional hypothesis was supported, although the performance of three agents was not significantly better than the single agent's performance. Evidence was found in two of three tests that a change in pro attitude may bring about a change in RV performance. The RV effect (expressed as ES = z/[radical]n) replicated that of the mean ES norm for the free- response domain found by J. Milton.|
