Remote viewing can give information about distant planets without using a lot of expensive equipment. It is much faster than the speed of light. When viewing ET civilizations give up the idea that they evolved at a particular location. Think in terms of panspermia, migration and colonization. Humans did not evolve on earth but colonized it in the distant past with the permission of even earlier inhabitants. Our civilization has gone in reverse, and we are now primative compared to our ancestors.
Using Kepler 186f as a remote viewing target, I see that it is uninhabited. There is at least one other planet in the system. According to my ET channels this system is not claimed by anyone and is open to colonization. Travel there is possible through a worm hole. It is going to take a while but perhaps humans from earth can colonize this system in the future.
