In arguing that remote viewing can be taught through training our consciousness, one suggests that consciousness is a separate entity from the brain. Consciousness is a scientific mystery and there are many theories that exist regarding its origin. It has yet to be proven that consciousness isn’t defined by a monistic philosophy: that mind and matter are the same “stuff”. Remote viewing suggests a philosophy of Dualism, that there is a rigid distinction between mind and matter. It also suggests that there is such thing as a collective conscious, that our minds are all entangled somehow and interact with one another. In reality, it is very possible that the physiological processes that occur in our brains directly manifest our individual consciousnesses.
