Remote viewing is a mental ability whereby a person (a remote viewer) can describe impressions of, sketch, and model a target that is 'remote' from them and not available through their normal senses. Remote viewing is an intuitive ability related to being psychic, ESP or PSI.
Remote Viewing is a psychic skill originally developed and utilized as an operational intelligence gathering tool for the United States Military and Intelligence services from 1972 – 1995. A January 1979 SECRET progress report from SRI to the D.I.A describes Remote Viewing as:
"Remote Viewing (RV) is the acquisition and description, by mental means, of information blocked from ordinary perception by distance or shielding, and generally believed to be secure against such access."
- SRI quarterly progress report for the DIA – Jan 10, 1979 – H.E. Puthoff, I. Swann, G. Langford.
Remote viewing was created and developed primarily within Laboratory environments. This means that it was done under controlled conditions for research purposes. Within this developed 'protocols' that define what we call Remote Viewing. Proper remote viewing is done within a strict science-based protocol.
1. The remote viewer is kept unwitting of either the nature or identity of the target until after the session is completed (BLIND).
2. Remote Viewing Sessions are conducted in a setting that prevents knowledge of the target "leaking" to the viewer. These measures are important to insure that the viewer does not receive non verbal body language, hints or clues about the target in any way other than what would be considered "psychic."
3. The Remote Viewing data is recorded so that it can be later checked for accuracy.
4. Feedback. The experiments have a level of feedback that allows the Remote Viewing data to be scored for accuracy.
5. Remote Viewing is not spontaneous and is always used within a set project with a set target and protocols.
Remote viewing is NOT used to give "psychic readings," "tell fortunes" or other sorts of popular classical psychic activities of this nature, but is rather a means of doing serious scientific research and for performing operational tasks in criminal investigations, government intelligence work, commercial applications and alike.
Like Martial Arts, remote viewing can be done in a number of ways as long as its all done within the protocols (above). Most people follow or favor a method championed and used by the U.S. military or one of its modern variants. More often than not called (CRV, TRV, TDS,) and so on.
From 1977 to 1986 Ingo Swann working as a consultant for SRI (Stanford research Institute) the second largest think tank used by the U.S. Government, was tasked in creating a replicable and teachable method of Remote Viewing. This he Called Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV). This forms the basis of most of today's off shoot variants. This generally involves an unfolding and expanding six stage process of recording subtle impressions through words, sketches and diagrams onto paper.
Learning the art of Remote Viewing is like training for a martial art – it takes a combination of natural ability and many years or practice and dedication to become both confident and competent. Remote Viewing is as much about learning about yourself and how the universe speaks to you as it is a method to transcend time and space.
Remote Viewing isn't how it sounds – like ‘viewing' a movie of unfolding psychic impressions in your head. Remote Viewing is more like a mixture of very subtle senses and sensations; touch, sounds, smells, tastes and many more subtle impressions and feelings all working together to try to tell you what the target is. Remote Viewing is like a gradual opening of a window to the target where each impression builds on the one before, slowly revealing the target to you.
What started as a Top Secret $20M U.S. military intelligence program more commonly known under its umbrella name of The Star Gate Program, to combat the cold war Russian psychic spies, has now grown into a worldwide civilian Remote Viewing community with the original military remote viewers now teaching this art and their students expanding out in the world and setting-up their own private remote viewing companies and using this skill in many new and exciting ways.
