Somewhere in that interview he was commenting on the near-perfect match between some of my drawings and the target. His statement was something like, "Joe provides this kind of spectacular detail about twenty percent of the time. " This statement was made along with other statements that reflected a target hit rate of about sixty to sixty-five percent. But in this statement, he was specifically referring to near perfect drawings, something that rarely happens in remote viewing. Unfortunately, when it was edited, it was taken completely out of context.
Unknown targets are filled with problems. As an example, a totally unknown target, like a UFO sighting, makes a very poor target. Even if you have a perfect description of the area in which the sighting has taken place, you are still left without any information that can validate specifics about the actual target—the UFOs. In my experience, the chances of stating UFO material obtained through remote viewing is correct are very close to zero. Likewise, the existence of a totally unknown target is almost never checked out on the ground.
People do this in a lot of different ways. " Well, I'm talking about the same kind of thing. For instance, the way a person shifts in a chair might tell us when we are getting close to a correct answer. How people fold their arms during a conversation or what they do with their hands transfer information as well. Even where and how a person moves his eyes while answering a question can tell us whether we are right or wrong, or if they are inventing a response to throw us off the track, or if they simply don't know.
