Frontloading and Throughput in Remote Viewing - A System Analyst Perspective

Eight Martinis - The State of the Art of Remote Viewing Issue 3

March 2010

Twenty-plus years have passed since remote viewing was declassified and brought to the civilian sector. Thousands of hours have been spent training people, honing skills, refining abilities and analyzing results. As we work with it, the process of remote viewing has and is continuing to evolve. No healthy organization or profession encourages stagnation, and as such, enough time has passed that I would like to present some current thoughts regarding the use of frontloading.

Customer service, utilization of resources and quality results in a timely manner. These should be things we strive for as minimum performance standards in any professional arena. These same indicators should seriously be considered as remote viewing continues to move into a more structured commercial market.

Logically, the remote viewer who punches a time clock and consistently produces the most accurate work in the shortest amount of time may be the remote viewer who is gainfully employed. (read more at Issue 3)

Linear thinking is useless in a nonlinear world

Eight Martinis - The State of the Art of Remote Viewing Issue 5

June 2011

My interest in precognition, synchronicity and non-locality began with my study of nursing intuition. Eventually, after two hours of rudimentary instruction at a "psychic fair" I sketched a remote viewing target for the first time and my world changed, never to be the same. I felt a deep sense of duty toward my fellow man after sketching that target. The concept of remote viewing or our ability to do it was, and still is, essentially unheard of. Not making a personal effort to share something that could so significantly impact the potential of the evolutionary process of the human race and the human condition would mean I was participating in and perpetuating a travesty in every sense of the word.

Not on my watch.

The title of this article, "linear thinking is useless in a non-linear world" is a quote from Rowan Gibson's Rethinking the Future: Rethinking Business, Principles, Competition, Control & Complexity, Leadership, Markets, and the World. The concept represented in the quote also makes sense when applied to human interaction in the nonlocal environment, currently defined as remote viewing, or anomalous cognition. Remote viewing is an information gathering tool that uses the communication of the conscious and subconscious minds to gather sensory perceptions across time and space. Freeing the mind of the boundaries of linear thinking is the first step in a process of many as we learn that it is possible to function in the nonlinear world of the nonlocal environment.

Viewing Through Flashbang (or better still, in spite of it)

Eight Martinis The State of the Art of Remote Viewing Issue 7

The Controlled Remote Viewer in training and practice modes is a remote viewer striving to become proficient and accurate. "The student rarely realizes that the end goal of those first sessions is not to get the target. The real goal is to have the two minds {subconscious and conscious} work together on a common task." (Buchanan)

Post-session feedback, or "mind candy" is an essential part of training and practice as the trust and reliability of the two minds develop as a working team. "As an understanding of the individual viewer's work patterns emerges, new session transcripts and reports are filtered against those patterns, perception by perception, word by word, to test, retest, and refine the accuracy of the indicators compiled for that viewer. The more sessions the viewer has performed, the more accurate the filter becomes, and the more correct the resulting information presented in the {operational} report." (Buchanan)

The crv student moves gradually toward Operations / Applications Mode. Students are aware that in Operations Mode the target is always an unknown and feedback may be either delayed or never provided by the customer for various reasons.

We do well not to forget:

"The protocols, or procedures, used within the intelligence collection or applications side of Project STARGATE were developed and based on the remote viewing protocols designed, tested, and developed within the research side of that project." (McMoneagle).

Target of the Week Discussions are part of Lyn's crv learning opportunities. We recently resumed them after a hiatus of several months, expanding them through webinars as a learning opportunity for viewers across the remote viewing community. The webinars also offer the opportunity for people new to remote viewing to be able to come and listen as we discuss sessions, examine structure and answer questions as time allows.

Controlled Remote Viewing and Era III Medicine

Eight Martinis State of the Art of Remote Viewing Magazine, Issue 8

December 2012

"The problem is, the skeptics and the materialists won't look at non-local data at the level of biology and psychology. They will grant you that non-local phenomena occur at the quantum level--the level of the very small, such as atoms and subatomic particles. That has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. But the notion that these things can happen at the level of the psyche and at the level of biology is just not being entertained. They have some classical ways of dismissing the kind of data that I have been focusing on. They paint it with the term, "parapsychology." They will say, "Oh, that's just parapsychology." But it doesn't matter what it's called. The real question is, "Is the data good?" And if the data is good, then the materialists are in a world of trouble, and the materialist way of looking at things by saying that "It's just all matter and energy" falls flat on its face. (Dossey, MD)

Introduction The art and science of medicine utilizes critical thinking skills as both intrinsic catalyst as well as evaluation tool for dynamic growth. As the understanding of time, space, consciousness physics and non-locality changes, our understanding of humans as holistic systems within systems must change with it. It is imperative that medicine take a pro-active and strategic position monitoring conceptual research and development across all scientific disciplines to optimize our understanding of human science and the human condition. This article will provide information toward Era III Medicine by 1)utilizing data collection from human interaction with and within the nonlocal environment using Controlled Remote Viewing demonstrating human diversity and inclusion 2)discuss considerations regarding the impact of human science, cultural diversity & inclusion as they affect the interpretation, analysis & scoring of rv data 3)offer thoughts contrasting previous analytic scoring models with less emphasis on diversity & inclusion 4)provide examples of rv sessions.

Ground Report from a CRV Newbie - Ronald Kuhn & Teresa Frisch

Eight Martinis - The State of the Art of Remote Viewing Magazine, Issue 10

November 2013

Would you like to become a remote viewer? My name is Ron Kuhn and I'm on my way to becoming a Controlled Remote Viewer. I would like to share my experience as a newbie because maybe if another newbie reads this, it might help them. Anyone can become a remote viewer if they are willing to put in the time and effort. You can read books, watch DVDs, or attend a seminar and successfully remote view a practice target. You get out of the learning experience what you put into it and more. It can be a very rewarding experience and change your life for the better, forever, but if you are like me, you might need more than that to become proficient.

I read the books, watched the DVDs, and attended some seminars. All I got was confused. I sat down on my back porch one Sunday afternoon and decided to try and break down the process of remote viewing. I wanted to understand all the steps and terminologies. What works for one person doesn't always work for another. I can tell you what works for me. I hope this is helpful for you. Read more at

CIA Sponsored American Institutes of Research (AIR) Remote Viewing Report in 2016: The View From Under The Bus

Eight Martinis The State of the Art of Remote Viewing Magazine Issue 14

May 2016

Circa June, 1972. Word on the street in the intelligence community was that the Soviets were pouring significant resources into the study of parapsychology. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) responded, establishing a classified program that researched the development of human mental, intuitive abilities. Talented psychic Ingo Swann joined Dr. H. E. Puthoff at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), in Menlo Park, California (Puthoff, 1996) to see what could be learned. Research led to Operations, and for the next twenty-three years the American citizens were unaware that they had funded the training and development of psychic spies who could describe locations, activities and events anywhere in time and space. They named the process Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV).

The program was the proverbial red-headed step-child that nobody in the intelligence community wanted. Sponsors changed, funding changed, even its name changed but from 1972 until July of 1995, it managed to survive as Grill Flame, SCANATE, Center Lane, Sunstreak and eventually Star Gate. The CIA had brought the program into the world and the CIA seemed determined to take it out.

Catching Smoke The CIA wasn't the only group interested in learning more about the elusive human component of intuition. A nurse named Patricia Benner, mentored by Hubert Dreyfus and Richard Lazarus, was working toward her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkley (Benner Associates website, n.d.) across the San Francisco Bay, northeast of SRI's Menlo Park location.
