The Military CRV training manual

The Military CRV training manual

December 1st - 2008

For years it’s been hard to learn CRV (Controlled Remote Viewing) and I have seen it being mis-explained and misunderstood many times during this time in discussions and comments. For this reason I have collated some of the important and descriptive documents from both the CIA released archives and from the public domain in one place to help or educate those interested in this trainable psychic method.

Within this packed file there is:

  • SRI - Co-ordinate Remote viewing (CRV) Technology 1981-83 briefing.
    - from a paper authored by Hal Puthoff and the consultant Ingo Swann.
    I have included a ‘briefing version’ of this paper as it has more explanatory references to the CRV process and the R&D of stages 1-8.
  • Special Orientation Techniques - Stages 1-3
    Author - Hal Puthoff - 1984
    Overview of the first three stages of training with examples.
  • Special Orientation Techniques - Stages 4
    Author - Hal Puthoff - 1984
    Overview of the stage4 of training with examples.
  • Special Orientation Techniques - Stages 5-6
    Author - Hal Puthoff - 1984
    Overview of the stages 5-6 of training with examples.
  • Tom McNear CRV Training notes/manual -circa - 1985.
    One of Ingo’s first and possibly one of his best students training notes/manual in document form.
  • Paul Smith CRV Training notes/manual
    circa - (1996 onwards in the public domain) The modern most well know and used CRV manual.
  • Daz Smith Open Source CRV guide (2005)
    - my 'loose' guide with examples to use with the available material to help explain it better for those attempting to use CRV form the available material.

1985 CRV training manual/document - found in the Stargate FOIA archives.

Whilst part of the way through organizing the entire archives into chronological order I found this doc which to me a CRV student is like a holy grail. This doc is an earlier version of a manual of Ingos famous six stage CRV methodology. What's different for me about this document is that it feels less military in its overall feeling and the addition od diagrams and an actual CRV session makes it an easier insight into how this method works.

I feel this is a great document and a great insight into Ingo's thinking and for those stuck on some of the elements like Ideograms its a great find.

The gem in the crown is near the back, a hypothetical set of stages past the stage 6 going from 7 to stage 11. And boy some of the expanded stage ideas are mind blowing! (see below)...

Analytics is the ability to make a yes/no decision without producing AOL. This also gives the viewer the ability to "recognize" numbers and letters. This is a further development of Stages IV and V. This has application in the recognition of addresses in search problems and code breaking. This stage is in the process of development by I.Swann. According to Mr. Swann this development is proceeding well.

This, too, is a concept of 1.Swann. This was originally believed to be Stage VII until he realized analytics actually preceded it. Stage VIII will allow the viewer to produce phonetic/sonic sounds which, it is hypothesized, will allow the viewer to produce the name of persons, places, and things at the site. In my experience these signals, which I have produced, have at times been very accurate. An example of this is "Carribah", which was produced when tasked against Karriba Dam.

Stage IX is a follow-on to the Stage IV emotional impact (EI) column. The EI column is the place the viewer discusses the "feelings" of people at the site. If the viewer is "in-touch" with a distant persons feelings the next step would seem to be a more complete telepathic link. Stage IX would be broken into two phases:

PHASE I would be receiving telepathic signals from the site area. Again, this is very similar to Stage IV EI.

PHASE II would be transmitting telepathic signals to the site area. Once we understand telepathic signals well enough to receive them the next step would be to transmit them.

Stage X would be mind-over-matter, also known as psychokinesis (PK). We have very little understanding of PK, but we do know it
exists. If Stage IX is telepathic signals which effect people, it is logical the next stage would be RA signals which effect "things".

Stage X would be divided into three phases:

PHASE I Would be affecting or interacting with "things" at the site.

PHASE II would be teleportation of things from the site. Teleportation is an element of PK. Once we can interact with things at the site the next step would be to "bring things back from the site".

PHASE III would be teleportation of things to the site. Once we can remove things from the site we should be able to send them as well.

This is the most diffiE-ultstage to under s tanT.-Time is considered another dimension, but there may be many more. Mathematically it is considered that there are infinite numbers of dimensions.
Stage XI would be broken into at least two phases:

PHASE I would be altering time at the site. Time could be frozen, moved forward, or moved back. The implications of this are mind
boggling. I believe this is the first stage where we could truly effect (alter) the future (as well as the past and the present).

PHASE II Maybe by the time we reach Stage XI we will understand enough about alternate dimensions to use this phase. I believe
there would probably be an additional phase for each additional dimension we discover.

I realize these concepts are difficult to grasp and impossible to believe, but, they are a natural flow of the signal and it is for this reason I included them. Only time will tell,whatever time is.

The Military CRV training manual (1990s)

It’s primary purpose was to capture and preserve for posterity Ingo’s methodology. The very first page declares that it was "prepared to serve as a comprehensive explanation of the theory and mechanics" of CRV, and as a "guide for future training programs."

- Paul H Smith


I acquired a copy of the Military CRV training manual late in 1997 whilst attending a CRV training course in London, England. Shortly after this Palyne 'PJ' Gaenir posted a copy of it on her website in 1998. For extensive supporting material for the manual and an extensive resource of remote viewing information Pj's famous site is here.

The CRV manual in its current state is not the absolute learning tool for remote viewing and CRV. What it is, is a supportive tool allowing a valuable insight into the training techniques created by Ingo Swann and the team at SRI and developed over years by the American military. The manual is as I myself have found a fantastic tool for the development of this remarkable skill - BUT I stress it is used to it's best when accompanied with the knowledge of a skillful Remote Viewing teacher.

In an email communication with ex military viewer Paul Smith about the CRV manual he gave me this text to add to the download.

"It represents CRV in its purest form, and any departures from the principles it contains should be examined at long and hard before they are accepted. There are already a number of alleged "product improvements" based upon the CRV manual that not only are not improvements, but if they aren't just changing "happy" to "glad" or adding superfluous embellishments, may even be outright eviscerations of CRV's principles and effective methodologies. In considering these "new versions" of CRV methodology, it is definitely a case of caveat emptor. I see as a positive benefit of posting the manual that some of the chicanery and foolishness may finally be unveiled that has been able to persist around derivatives of CRV because the "bottom line" hasn't until now been available. There are of course those who will offer as their excuse that this manual represents obsolete technology. My response is that none of its derivatives have thus far demonstrated anything better--or in most cases even as good--under similar constraints".

Open Source CRV

Updated 22/6/2012:
I have now revised my Open sourcse document - the current version is version 3.0.

Its now mid 2005 and heading fast towards 2006. To be honest I though I would see an updated Military CRV manual or a real tool and guide from one of the long-time established ex military remote viewers by now - but this has not appeared.

So I decided to create my own! I have named this 'Open Source CRV' which is what I hope this technology would and should be. Anyone should be able to learn this skill if they have the fortitude to 'go the distance' in terms of dedication and the time it will takes.

This technology homed and created by Ingo Swann and used by the US military for twenty years does not belong to them alone - it belongs to us all.

Download Open Souce CRV - version 3.0

Over these last nine years since PJ first put the Military CRV manual online its still just as hard and just as expensive to get any 'real' training in CRV. So with Open source CRV you can use this in tandem with the military CRV manual. I tried to explain some of the scientific and hard to understand elements from the manual in a way that the everyday man speaks.

Open Source CRV is not a method on its own, and is NOT a definitive and NOT an absolutely correct way to use CRV. Its my interpretation and use of the military CRV manual and methods I have been trained. Its essentially a guide toward using the military CRV manual, in the absence of any others.

Open Source CRV includes, diagrams, descriptions with 'real CRV examples' and a real CRV session as an example of format.

UPDATED 22/6/2012 - OPEN SOURCE CRV - A guide to using the CRV manual
(Version:3.0) (2.2MB)

Please if you have any comments and ideas for this guide then let me know! As its a work in progress. Open Source - means open to all!



ROV RV - This is a small descriptive piece I wrote recently to explain my thinking of the Remote viewing process and how it appears to work for me:

"During a remote viewing session I feel like I am both an ROV (remotely operated vehicle) and I am also the remote operator, watching this limited view but not able to be there physically."
