The presenters you meet here and with whom you interact are experts in domains of key interest to remote viewers, yet some of them appear here in a remote viewing venue for the first time. We have purposely limited enrollment to a small, select group for the very reason that we want you to be able to enjoy the insights of and interact with these luminaries without having to compete ferociously for their attention, as often happens in much larger conferences and meetings.
