The intuitive, subconscious mind can, with practice, accurately describe and report sensory information such as smells, sounds, tastes, colors, sizes, and shapes using CRV / remote viewing. CRV / remote viewing in general is typically not as accurate in describing and reporting analytical, conscious-mind types of information such as alpha numeric (letters and numbers).
CRV was used in operations by the military as an adjunct means of intelligence gathering from 1978 until it was declassified in 1995. CRV training and instruction was brought to the public sector by former members of the Star Gate Unit after it was declassified. Several variations have developed since, with some tracing their roots back to CRV. Each methodology has its own reporting mechanism and professional format.
