If remote viewing research is an effort to bring psychic experiences into the lab in order to study them in a scientific way, then it would naturally follow that this would entail trying to understand the phenomena apart from any emotional or subjective factors. For if psi is authentic, then to be consistent with the scientific method, the experiences and processes that mediate them must exist in an objectively measurable way. So I am thinking that such omissions were not intentionally excluded or redacted. Perhaps instead emotions are one of the factors that these researchers attempt to eliminate in their experiments in order to control for their effects.The one thing that surprised me about all of the texts I’d read was the lack of mention about any “feelings” which accompanied the psychic connections. This absence was strikingly missing because most (I’d estimate more than 70%) of the psychic messages I’ve received have included - or elicited in me - an emotional context.
Of course, the fact that the texts I’ve read about remote viewing lacked any overt mention of emotional context could also be purposeful. It’s not impossible that any recognized emotional aspects could have been excluded - or even redacted - in order to present a more clinical and sterile face to the studies.
Also, I do understand what you mean when you describe the feelings that accompany a psychic message as being incongruous to how you were feeling when you received the message. But interestingly I have developed into quite the opposite of you when it comes to how I allow these emotions to affect what often appear to be psychic messages. But it is only because I have been wrong so many times as a result. That is to say the event that I thought I was receiving in conjunction with a strong and incongruous emotional content never turned out the way I would have expected. Of course, that may just indicate that I am not very psychic. But in any case, even though I still have these types of experiences, I usually just filter them out and go about my business. So if my experiences in these matters are consistent with the approach of the remote viewing researchers, then I can also understand why they would try to eliminate emotions because of the false positives that they seem to elicit. I hope all that made sense.
