Akashic Records, Collective Consciousness, and Remote Viewing
Akashic Records, whose name is derived from the Sanskrit word "Akasha" meaning "space", are supposed to contain all knowledge from all human experiences in the Universe. The Akashic Records are frequently described as a library that is constantly updated whenever any person anywhere thinks a thought. The mystic Edgar Cayce (March 18, 1877 - January 3, 1945) claimed to be able to answers questions about health, astrology, and reincarnation by accessing the Akashic Records when he was in a state of self-induced trance. The Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) based in Virginia Beach, offers a variety of therapies in keeping with the spirit and philosophy of the Edgar Cayce readings. Edgar Cayce Centers are now found in 25 countries and each year attract thousands of curious people, scholars, researchers, philosophers, and even health care professionals.
Interest in mysticism and paranormal phenomena seems to fulfill a human need for absolute knowledge which science cannot provide. Some companies are running very profitable businesses by encouraging people to explore the power of their subconscious by tapping into the Universal Energy which is within the reach of enlightened individuals. There is a web site that for $98 Dollars will sell you six cassette tapes to teach "remote viewing", a technique to access subconscious and universal mind information in space and time so that present, past, and future events are revealed.
Akashic Records, Collective Consciousness, and Remote Viewing are philosophies for which there is no proof and which cannot be scientifically verified. Remote viewing (the current version of "clairvoyance") is a fancy way of doing thought experiments, or brainstorming about something that you know nothing about. Any findings produced through remote viewing or access to Akashic Records without physical observations or background knowledge cannot be much better than wild guesses. We can have a greater awareness of our surroundings and can even make some insightful predictions by paying close attention to our perceptions and by using our power of deduction.
One Million Dollar Challenge: The James Randi Educational Foundation, a not-for-profit organization which was established in 1996 to promote critical thinking, offers a prize of one million Dollars to any person who can demonstrate any psychic, supernatural or paranormal ability of any kind under mutually agreed conditions. To date, the prize remains unclaimed.

Hello! I need a help! Can akashic records be an infinite library?
Can I find what i want there?

Unfortunately, akashic records are a figment of somebody's imagination. While in theory they are infinite and contain everything, you cannot get anything out of them.
You are better off searching the Internet for answers to your questions.

Well this is the most interesting site in the context of the metaphysical and learning about it through objective study. Nothing wrong with that. But I do object that paranormal activity or experiences are nothing more then fantasies. Many real and documented studies and videotape evidence has been objectively studied and verified from a scientific point of view. And although it is most challenge to quantify data based on psychic ability or paranormal phenomenon (real or imagined), there is enough empirical data to support that in many cases (not all) there is no scientific explanation or objective data to quantify an experience and make it valid in scientific terms. Still doesn’t mean it’s not real. Just not verifiable to those who need scientific data to prove the existence of that which eludes them.
If we had proof of the infinite then there would be no need to search for the Truth during our brief journey in the physical world. The quest for truth is a part of life itself and by that we find the meaning of life as well as the afterlife. The two are intimately intermingled, what limits our perception of it can be explained by virtue of the limitations of the physical body itself. Overcoming physical reality as it merges with spiritual attainment is the never-ending purpose of the human soul.

Cherry's comment describes the typical dichotomy between the "spiritual" and "real" that must be considered in trying to prove or disprove something in a scientific way. Since science does not recognize the existence of "afterlife" or "soul", there cannot be any meaningful scientific dialogue about these concepts or their implications.

Administrator, I like your comment "You are better off searching the Internet for answers to your questions." I don't know why the one million dollars prize remains unclaimed... if we can go to akashic and know the future...

Nice article. I don't have a problem with anyone saying that don't believe in something that can't be proven... if I did that would point to a problem within myself not outside of myself. Clairvoyance is utilized in the act of remote viewing but they are not one and the same. Similar to how telepathy could manifest via clairaudience or clairsentience. I have read many remote viewing readings and many also will pick up things with their clairsentience.
