Chapter 34

It took me awhile to understand the data presented in this chapter.


The first time that I looked at the session, I thought that there must be some mistake. Perhaps my tasker gave me the target coordinates for another cue, or perhaps I made some serious decoding errors, or perhaps there was just a mystery that I did not understand.


My initial reaction was simply not to accept these data. I even put this session back on my shelf with a question mark on it. This just could not be our future. I would not accept it. Why would we voluntarily choose this future?

Upon reflection, I decided that I simply needed to continue to be totally honest with all of my data. I would do the best job I could to interpret these data, and then I would let my readers make up their own minds. But one thing is certain, our future is not what I initially expected before beginning this project, if these data are correct. My problem is that I could not easily let go of my idiosyncratic values. I could not let go of the past. I had difficulty accepting the fact that the future may be much different from my preconceived notion of our destiny.

The data in this session will speak for themselves. If I have interpreted them correctly, then I have let go of the past sufficiently to realize that our future will be guided by a vision greater than my own.

The essential cue and qualifiers for this chapter's target are as follows:

TARGET 3409/2390
Protocols used for this target: SPP

Human civilization on Earth in a future time frame in which the Galactic Federation succeeds with its current agenda involving humans (at a time in which it would be optimal to view the outcome of the Galactic Federation involvement with humans). In addition to the relevant aspects of the general target as defined by the essential cue, the viewer perceives and describes the following target aspects:

• the macro society that exists on Earth
• the human society that exists on Earth
• the most significant other ET society that exists on Earth

19 May 1998
11:22 a.m.
Atlanta, Georgia
Protocols: Enhanced SPP, Type 2
Target coordinates: 3409/2390

My first ideogram in Phase 1 suggests that the macro-society is large with many subdivisions. It is complex, but also homogeneous in some sense. I also perceive a number of sub-macro groups, varying in size.

Moving to Phase 2TM, I perceive a macro-society with some degree of homogeneity along at least one dimension, such as cultural, experiential, or racial. There are political divisions, but the intensity of the divisions is moderate to low. There is a focus on physical activity. The society feels "asleep" or quiet in some way, as if they are waiting, and perhaps have been waiting, for a long time.

The quality of authority in the society is diffuse and its concentration is weak. There are a few authority attractors that hold the attention of the society. The dominant ideology is political, and everyone is aware of this. But again, this ideological theme is weak in the society. The populace is divided into factions, and the members of these factions are bonded by mild group allegiance.

Most of the activities for the members of the society are focused on the physical realm, and language is used extensively. I perceive that the subspace realm is supportive of activities on the physical side, and there is intense interest among the physical beings in developing a subspace relationship. I perceive that the physical beings are a bit desperate in some fashion, and they may be looking toward the subspace side of existence for help.

The various factions within the macro-society participate with each other. They acknowledge differences in the society, and are generally supportive of group variation. The significant leader of the macro-society is a male. He is a bureaucrat or technocrat. He supports the sub-macro groups through his administration of social programs.

I perceive three groups in Phase 3TM. I label the groups conventionally



G1 is very small, and it may be a single subject. The subject feels masculine. Most major decisions for the society flow through him. He does not have a fully developed political orientation. He is more of a neutral but compassionate administrator. His activity is mostly in the physical realm. While he is not charismatic, he is respected for his administrative capabilities. He maintains a wide-angle perspective of the problems of his society.



This group is small or moderate in size. It has a single or primary focus for authority, but that authority is not rigid. The group is generally homogeneous. The political orientation of the group is in its infancy. The activities of this group contain a significant focus on subspace. While they use language extensively, they also engage in telepathic communication.


The group is admired by other members of the society. The group members are aware of their privileged status in the larger society, and they are somewhat protective of this status. Their minds are calm, but there is an underlying nervousness among them, deeply felt. G2 apparently has a mildly charismatic inspirational or religious leader.



G3 is the largest of all the groups examined in this session. There are more numerous physical variations within this group, perhaps many of genetic origin. There is a diffuse concentration of authority but the authority is strongly felt on the individual level.

The ideas that dominate this group reflect a focus on better times ahead, a salvation of some sort. There is a significant level of subspace activity with this group, and this activity may be spiritual in nature. The members of G3 hold all sorts of mixed-up ideas relating to subspace, many of which are simply superstitious. I sense that the subspace realm is very supportive of this group, even of their superstitions.

The other groups in the macro-society are a bit careful of G3. Currently, G3 is under control, but it could change and this group could become more volatile.

There is a male inspirational leader in this group. He is an opportunistic rabble-rouser with no specific agenda who is driven to his activities by boredom with his life. I get the sense that G3 is comparable to the lower class, or common masses. The common people feel primitive and fearful in some way.


The Macro-Society Developmental Trajectory

The beginning of the developmental trajectory is a peace period for the civilization. There are many subjects, religions, and even advanced artwork.

At some point after this peak period, there is an irreversible decline in the civilization. There is a time of great change.
Following this time of great change, there is a period in which the civilization hibernates or sleeps. This does not mean that the people in the civilization are hibernating. Rather, it is the culture or the civilization itself that is dormant.

After the period of dormancy, there is an awakening. The society emerges from the quiet period and begins new activity. During this time there is a brief period of development.

At this point the society leaves. They abandon their previous home. They simply pick up and go.

At the extreme end of the examined trajectory there is abandonment. Ruins and relies of the past are all that remain in this place of origin. At the end of this trajectory the previous civilization is essentially dead in terms of a linear continuation of the past. The society has left this place. They have begun to live in an entirely new way, and in a new location.



What was so difficult for me to accept in these data is the development trajectory The remainder of the session simply examines the society at a single point in its future. But the developmental trajectory is much more extensive in its perspective, and it is this wider view that contains the greatest surprise.

Earth is our current home world, our place of origin. It is also the nest that incubates humanity. But because of my remote viewing experiences, I am beginning to view all of humanity as a hybrid between individuality and a collective. I sense that the individual nature of our personalities is an asset that will persist and develop through time. It is a positive ingredient to our overall sense of who we are. But we are also a large group with a collective consciousness. In a sense, we, as a collective, are somewhat like a single complex organism.

If one examines a hive of bees or an ant colony, it is easy to view these collective entities as a single organism. The individual bees or ants cannot exist outside the collective. Indeed, the various individual bees and ants can be viewed as organs in a larger entity, although the organs can walk about independently, and they are not all covered in one skin. But none of the parts can exist alone. These are extreme cases of collective entities.

It has often been mentioned that the Greys seem to exist as a collective. Their extensive telepathic capacities allow them to share one another's thoughts with no barriers separating individuals. In general, one might say that they are more collective than individual. Humans, on the other hand, seem to be more individual than collective, at least currently and perhaps this will be a permanent feature of our aggregate personality.


But both humans and Greys have individual and collective identities, and the differences between the groups are really variations in degree. Indeed, the current activities of the Greys suggest that they are attempting to incrementally move their collective consciousness in a direction that emphasizes the role of individuals.

What strikes me so strongly is that individuals form collectives, and the collectives evolve with a coherency that gives clear definition to the evolution of societies across time. There will always be individuals in any society that vary in their particular development, both physically in terms of age as well as with regard to the maturity of their personalities. But the societies are truly unique when compared across time.


Humanity of the Dark Ages is totally different from humanity of the late twentieth century. When reading our own history as a planetary civilization, clearly the collective that we call humanity has evolved from a continuum of previous states to become something totally different today

What this all means in terms of the remote viewing session is that the collective entity that we call humanity is destined to leave this nest we call Earth. These data do not say that humanity will be defeated in any way Rather, they indicate that our home world will one day have completed its purpose. We will not exist on this planet through all eternity. We will not forever depend on this rock to define ourselves. We will grow. We will hatch.


And we will leave our protective shell behind.

In my reading of these data, I see a galactic existence for humanity. This is the true meaning of the Galactic Federation's agenda for us. We will not be the "Earth people" forever. We will be humans, and we will live throughout not only this galaxy but the universe. We have already seen this happening among other species.


Apparently the Greys do not now live on only one planet. Their cities are ships in space. In the future, some of them may again locate themselves on a planet. But even that would only be for a distinct period of time.

  • And what of the Martians?

  • Are they not also planning to finally leave their world of origin behind?

  • Can any species stay in one place forever?

It is probably true of all species that survive, that their collective destiny rests not on any one planet, but in a universe, and perhaps beyond. What was so hard for me to accept in these data is now obvious to me. We too will evolve collectively to a point where we must leave our place of origin. We too will abandon this planet one day. We too will live among the stars.


This is our collective fate.


As individuals, our destinies will ultimately be our personalities, and there will always be variations among us. But as a group, as a civilization, would we really want anything less than a destiny as cosmic explorers in a universe of challenge and wonder?

Chapter 35

For years now I have led a public battle to build an institute dedicated to developing our new science of spirituality. Some have taken our efforts seriously, but most have marginalized our work into the corners of their minds that they reserve for the bizarre and the ludicrous.

  • Is it worth it to publicly confront a society with ideas for which they are so poorly prepared?

  • Is it worth the public scorn, the professional ostracism, the financial risk, the personal pain?

People spend their entire lives running the race of time, living physically while pushing aside the question of the practical relevance of spirituality. Eventually they find themselves on their deathbed with the realization that all their achievements in the physical world are inconsequential relative to their ability to answer with certainty the question of whether their personalities will survive the demise of their bodies.

Readers, if you can hold in your mind the possibility that even one of the remote viewing experiences that I have described in this volume actually happened, then you realize that remote viewing is not possible in the absence of a soul. Unless some aspect of ourselves is nonphysical perceiving anything at a distance, or across time, would be impossible.

My experiences in consciousness have demonstrated to me beyond doubt that my soul is real, and that the soul of every human being on this planet is equally real. Since one does not physically "go" to any place when remote viewing, obviously there is something else about us that is already at the target location... at all target locations.


What other mechanism could possibly explain the ability to perceive something accurately without any physical connection to that thing? Is there any possible way to explain the phenomenon of remote viewing other than to accept fully the scientifically verified reality of the unbounded nature of human consciousness, a consciousness that does not depend on the human body for its existence?

My remote viewing experiences have also led me to understand God differently. I no longer look to some distant Heaven to find my Father. I now understand the meaning of the words once told by a wise sage: God is within.

I once had a remote viewing experience where I perceived what I believe to be the essential beginning of the universe. There was a shape of light that somewhat resembled a spinning cloud or vortex. In the middle of the session, I questioned what to do next once I had perceived this enigma. In one of the columns of my Phase 4 matrix, I cued on the idea of a suggestion, inviting my subspace mind to offer a hint as to the meaning of this experience. The response was immediate. I sensed that I was to cue on God.

My conscious mind was confused by this suggestion, and probably as a consequence of this, the idea carne to me that I should cue on someone who could explain this to me. I then cued on Jesus in the matrix. For reasons that I will explain, I have long considered him our older brother, in a literal sense. I suppose I intuitively felt that he would be sufficiently experienced and wise to know what to do in this situation. Instantly I sensed my awareness shift to include this being's flavor of consciousness, and I sensed him suggest to me that I should abandon fear and plunge into the vortex that I perceived. I did so.

The vortex was alive. There was the sense of a huge consciousness, and as I extended my mind across this consciousness, I felt stretched like the skin of a balloon, although not uncomfortably so. It then became clear to me that this being was terribly alone, and sad beyond measure. It had spent an eternity by itself, slowly evolving, until it finally grew to a point at which it could end its pain.

Then, in one sudden burst, I experienced this being's solution. The being essentially blew itself up, or at least much of itself. As I followed the outward rush of the being's fragmenting expansion, I perceived that it experienced a new joy that nearly overwhelmed me. The being did not die.

At first the bits and pieces of the larger being were too small and immature to even be aware of themselves. Neither were they aware of their own origin. From this point began the most profound evolution of the original being. It had become a parent to the fragments of itself.

The fragmented parts began to experience existence in a way that seemed independent of the parent. Initially they did not understand that they were literally part of a single larger being. Yet as they continued to grow in experience, they matured and developed an intense need to know how they carne to exist, and indeed, the reason for their existence.


This led them eventually to seek and discover the reality of their parent, their loving creator. It was at this moment of realization that they understood that they were their parent, and that their own growth and evolution was also the growth and evolution of their parent.


The parent had created a way to look back at itself through a mirror of a multitude of individual consciousnesses.



We have a divine heritage.


What I have understood from my experiences in consciousness is that we are the fragments of God. By definition we are all made in his image. When I look at all those who surround me, I realize that I am looking into the face of my own Father. Now my readers can understand my motivation for pursuing research into consciousness. I view all human actions as part of God's own efforts to grow and to understand himself. Understanding consciousness is to understand God. I continue my research because nothing is more important to me than to know our Father.

This struggle to scientifically demonstrate our spiritual nature will ultimately succeed, but we need to differentiate individual battles from the war. What at first may appear as a total failure in one instance can later result in great achievement for the bigger picture. If the goal is to promote a global understanding of our composite nature as well as to demonstrate the fact of our divine heritage, then there can be no doubt of the eventual outcome.


The spiritual urge of every soul to overtly recognize the truth will eventually drive all of humanity in the direction of self-realization. This would have to happen because it is in God's nature to evolve, and to eventually rediscover himself through the experiences of his children. To say that we will ultimately f ail to see the truth about ourselves is to say that God will malfunction in his own evolution. In my view, this is not possible.



What role do the extraterrestrials play in this human drama of soul development? Ever since September 1993, when I had my initial exposure to remote viewing, I have become increasingly aware that many of those technologically advanced beings who are active on or near Earth have a deep respect for the human need to experience life without external coercion. I have been struck by the patience of these extraterrestrials as they gently prod a resistant human population that wants to bury its collective head in the sand like the proverbial ostrich.

In my opinion, if the Galactic Federation wanted to conquer this planet militarily, it could probably wipe out all human defensive infrastructure in a matter of minutes. The Greys alone, acting for the Federation, could do this without further assistance due to both their numbers (in terms of ships and personnel) and their extremely advanced technological capabilities.


Yet my experiences with them suggest that the Galactic Federation is enormously concerned with our welfare, and they want to avoid any trauma that could negatively affect our future collective evolution. My perceptions indicate that they respect and value us and what we may become more than we understand our own potential destiny. However different these beings are from us, in my view, friends such as these are more valuable than anything I know.

In particular, from what I have been able to fathom of the essential nature of the Greys, they are driven by a desire that I have not seen matched elsewhere to evolve toward an ultimate communion with our Heavenly Father. To them, spirituality is all that matters. That, in essence, is what makes them so different from us.

The association of the Greys with the Galactic Federation makes sense to me. That larger organization accepts and even embraces the spiritual ideas of the Greys, or at least the right to pursue these ideas. But the Galactic Federation does not demand control over its participating species. For example, it did not prevent the Greys from ruining their own home world through wanton abuse of their environment.


Nor did the Federation stop the Greys from originally interfering so dramatically with their own genetic makeup, an act from which they are still recovering today. From the perspective of the Galactic Federation, it is the right of a species to learn from its own mistakes, however severe these mistakes may be, as long as the species does not deprive another species of its own freedom to do likewise.


The Federation does not want a universe of species that act like dogs on a leash. My observations indicate that the Galactic Federation embraces a philosophy that values the freedom of all species to achieve a unique destiny, to mature in their own ways through God's school of the living experience.

The Reptilians are a different matter entirely. The group of Reptilians currently interacting with humans appear to be a faction of a larger species, essentially a renegade group with a totalitarian political twist. I am completely aware that there may exist some people who have interacted with the Reptilians (including some UFO "abductees") who would describe their interactions as very positive.


But my remote viewing data suggest that the Reptilians as a group have an agenda for humanity that does not favor our interests as a species. They have their own interests in us, and they tend to strongly control that which they feel they need to control in order to serve those interests.

Perhaps the Reptilians view our penchant to destroy our environment as the irresponsible behavior of a species that could not survive on its own without a controlling and wiser guardian. They possibly view themselves analogously as prospective parents, and humans as orphans in need of adoption. Well, those prospective parents rule with a hard hand, and I for one would rather grow up without them. Should we fall under the Reptilian influence for an extended period of time, we would risk losing our ability to determine our own fate. We would trade our freedom for the caretaker ship that comes packaged with an enslaved race.

I do not think God would want to live the way the Reptilians want us to live. Because I view all of us as evolving fragments of our parent, I find it impossible to separate our own spirituality from the matter of the extraterrestrials. As a species, we are going to make a crucial decision in the near future. Our decision may be to accept the responsibility of our own destiny which may include inflicting horrible environmental abuses to our world as we fight to understand ourselves and our true potential.


Alternatively, we may abandon the difficult commitment to forge a future for ourselves that contributes meaning to a struggling universe, and instead choose a path that continues the pathology of controlling our masses with secrecy and manipulation.



There is no one person who will cause this planet to change. There is no one ET event that will cause all of humanity to go through that crisis of understanding. There is no one group that will force the major news outlets to report the truth about the extraterrestrials, the soul, or even God. For every person who makes an effort to awaken humanity there are millions of others who are doing their part as well.


Some of these others fly UFOs. Some are subspace beings who we label guardian angels. Others are common people who intuitively know that the truth has been hidden from them. Some petition Congress for hearings on these matters. Others write books and articles that call for greater openness.

As for myself, I will continue to speak. I will also continue my work at The Farsight Institute. And I will ensure that the Institute maintains its commitment to an expanding research program from which so many have gained both knowledge and inspiration.

Eventually our collective struggle will bear great fruit. Eventually, all of God's children will grow out of their state of confusion and accept the reality of a universe filled with life.

Eventually, all of our brothers and sisters will recognize our common destiny, and our divine heritage. When this happens, we will not be at the end of our evolutionary march. All the evidence suggests that we will then only begin to recognize the meaning of infinity and thus of the truly long-term consequences to our Parent's gift of life to us.

Whenever we remote view, we extend our awareness across time and space. We can do this because we are already omnipresent. Remote viewing is an introduction to a greater future for our personalities. It proves that we have the ability to break out of our narrow intellectual confines and to see the universe more as God sees it.


When we allow our minds to roam the heavens, we are truly, and literally, seeing with the eyes of God. When we learn from what we see, we grow both individually and collectively With that growth comes a natural desire to evolve further, to see more, to learn more, to be more. This is the destiny of infinite positive evolution, which flows from our divine heritage.

We fight not to establish our right to explore and to grow within a wondrous universe. Rather, we fight our selves to accept a right that was already granted to us. No one, but no one, can take this right from us unless we voluntarily surrender it. Let us
seize this moment and define our evolutionary course for millennia to come. Listen not to the purveyors of fear. Fortune favors the bold. Let this be our mark in the universe.


Let this be our destiny.

Appendix 1

Specialized procedures in SRV are performed in Phase 5. Below are thumbnail sketches of some of the Phase 5 procedures normally included at the end of the weeklong introductory course.

Phase 5 requires a worksheet and a matrix, each on separate pieces of paper. The worksheet is labeled P5w, and the matrix is labeled P5m. The worksheet is positioned to the right of the matrix. All Phase 5 pages are assigned the same page number followed by the letters a, b, c, etc. for subsequent pages (such as 23a, 23b, etc.). The Phase 5 matrix is identical to the Phase 4 matrix. Also, P5½ matrix entries are made identically to P4½ en tries.

1. Timelines:

Have the viewer draw a horizontal line in the center of the worksheet. The viewer should then locate the target time, the current time, and the time of some significant event that is well known. The viewer should not be told the actual identification of the significant event, other than that it is event A. The viewer can also be instructed to probe the timeline for other significant events. Each event must be labeled generically e.g., event A, B, C, and so on. The viewer should not probe for a specific year, only an event.

2. Sketches:

Analytical sketches (more detailed than Phase 3 drawings) can be drawn and probed in the worksheet. Data obtained from the probes should be entered in the Phase 5 matrix. Lines can be drawn in the sketches to symbolically connect various places or objects. The viewer can switch from one place or object to another by alternately probing the separate parts of the drawing. Alternatively, the viewer can be instructed to move from one part of the drawing to another by following the line with his or her pen that connects the various parts. (See sliding.)

3. Cuing:

In Phase 5, the monitor can suggest cues for the viewer to enter into the matrix that may be too leading for Phase 4. These cues can be from the viewer's Phase 4 data, or they can be the monitor's words. Again, cues originating verbatim from the viewer's data are entered into the Phase 5 matrix in parentheses (); data from the monitor in brackets [ ]. Moreover, all monitor originating cues should have some obvious connection to the data obtained earlier so as to minimize the risk of "deduction peacocking," a phenomenon in which one deduction leads to another, and then another, etc., until a fictional storyline develops.

4. Locational sketches:

The monitor instructs the viewer to draw a map, say, of the United States. No edge of the map should come within one inch of any edge of the Phase 5 worksheet paper. The monitor then says the name of a well-known location (usually a city). The viewer then automatically places his or her pen on that spot and quickly draws a line to the target location. No further monitor instructions are required other than to say the name of the original location. The line must be straight and rapidly executed. A slowly drawn or curved line indicates that the conscious mind interfered with the flow of the data.

5. Symbolic sketches:

These sketches include some part or aspect of the target about which further information is needed. For example, using the Phase 5 worksheet, a circle can be used to represent a person being viewed, and a square can represent a governmental organization, and so on. The viewer is not told exactly what the symbols represent. Rather, the viewer is told a generic version of their nature (e.g., target subject, target group, etc.). These generic identifiers are written near the symbols. A line is then drawn connecting the symbols.


The line is labeled "relationship." Probes of the symbols (using the viewer's pen) and the relationship line yield information that is then entered into the Phase 5 matrix. If the symbols represent physical items, then the labels are placed in the physicals column of the matrix. The word "relationship" is entered in the concepts column in square brackets. All data are entered in the matrix.

Movement exercise for Phase 5: Sliding: The monitor can instruct the viewer to move from one location to another in a controlled fashion by having the viewer make a small circle on the Phase 5 worksheet. This circle should be labeled "A: location #1." Preferably the viewer may write something more meaningful but still non-leading, such as "A: on top of the structure." Another small circle is then drawn on the worksheet in a position relative to the first circle such that this position is sensible.

For example, if the viewer is on top of a building, and the monitor wants the viewer to descend into the building, then the second circle would be below the first. The second circle is then labeled accordingly (e.g., "B: inside the structure"). The viewer is instructed to connect the first circle to the second circle with a line, and then to retrace this line slowly as needed in order to go back and forth between the two points.


The viewer can also simply touch points A and B with his or her pen to shift quickly from one location to another. Alternatively, a cue placed in brackets (e.g., the words "building/inside") in the physicals column can achieve a similar result. However, sliding (down the line connecting points A and B) is useful if the monitor thinks that the viewer might profitably control the rate of movement, perhaps because the monitor suspects that observations made along the path of movement may be valuable.

Since there are no known distance limitations to this procedure, sliding is useful if the two locations are very far apart, such as two star systems. Often sliding can be used in combination with another technique. For example, the initial movement between two points can be accomplished with sliding, while subsequent movements can be quickly accomplished by having the viewer simply touch either of the connected circles.


To enter data into the Phase 5 matrix, A and B are placed in the physicals column of the matrix inside square brackets, e.g., [A]. The data following A in the physicals column are related to point A in the Phase 5 worksheet. Data following B in the physicals column are related to point B in the Phase 5 worksheet.

Appendix 2

The Farsight Protocols described in the previous chapters are called Basic SRV. In the advanced courses taught at the Institute, these procedures are modified significantly in order to exploit the greater capabilities that are possible with trained and competent viewers. These modifications are called Enhanced SRV.

Enhanced SRV resolves two problems inherent with Basic SRV. The first problem concerns an inadequacy in the use of Phase 1 data. Basic SRV collects and decodes a number of ideograms in Phase 1 that address various aspects of the target site. These ideograms are among the most important pieces of data in a remote viewing session because the conscious mind has almost no chance to interfere with the collection of these data.


Yet because the intent of the session is to proceed as quickly as possible to the later phases where more valuable data are collected, the Phase 1 ideograms are essentially thrown away as the viewer proceeds further into the session.

The second problem arises because viewers enter Phases 2 and 3 with a jumble of impressions left in their minds by all the gestalts in the various ideograms of Phase 1. For example, if four important target aspects are identified by four separate ideograms in Phase l, from which aspect will viewers report, say, temperatures, and in what order?


If the target is a campsite in Alaska in the middle of winter, the viewer may report both the heat of the campfire as well as the cold of the surrounding snow. This mixture of gestalts continues throughout Phases 2 and 3, and viewers typically spend a great deal of time in Phase 4 sorting things out.

Enhanced SRV procedures resolve both of these problems. The enhancements also improve the quantity and quality of data that are collected throughout the session. They shorten the time needed to descriptively separate the various target aspects in Phase 4. The enhancements also produce operationally useful Phase 1 data relevant to each individual ideogram.



Using Enhanced SRV, viewers begin their sessions by taking the target coordinates and drawing the ideogram in the normal fashion. They then write "A:" and describe the movements of the pen with words. The ideogram is then probed for primitive and advanced descriptors. Following this, the viewer writes "B:" and declares a low-level guess describing the gestalt that is reflected in the ideogram (such as "structure," "subject," "No-B," and so on). AU of this is identical to Basic SRV.

The viewers then write "C:" underneath the B. The ideogram is then probed repeatedly, searching for low-level Phase 2 descriptors, but any data that is allowed in the Phase 4 matrix is also allowed here. Viewers do not force anything, allowing whatever is perceived to arrive freely


This method of probing is called "free response." You will remember that in Phase 2, data are always collected following a fixed structure (sounds, textures, temperatures, visuals, and so on). This fixed structure approach is still not used in Phase 1, but viewers can mentally remind themselves of a few of the categories of Phase 2 should they need assistance in initiating the flow of data. Probing the ideogram five or six times is often typical at this point, but viewers can probe the ideogram however many times as may seem appropriate should the data continue to flow. The data are entered vertically down the page.

As viewers collect more data under C, they will notice that a dim and vague mental image of the target aspect that is reflected in the ideogram begins to form. For example, if the ideogram reflects a structure, then the viewers will begin to develop an intuitive mental picture of the structure. Either directly underneath or to the left side of the column of data under C, the viewers then write "D:". A sketch is then made of this aspect of the target (such as a structure) underneath D.

All of the above is ideally done on one piece of paper. Thus, with Enhanced SRV, viewers obtain a complete collection of data for each ideogram, including a sketch. This solves the problem of having all of the ideogram specific data being scrambled into only one Phase 2 and one Phase 3. But note that we have not yet "assembled the pieces."

Viewers then repeat the above process in normal Phase 1 fashion, taking the target coordinates between three and five times, seeing if any of the ideograms return subsequent to the appearance of a different ideogram. Most viewers tend to take the target coordinates five times since this allows them to obtain five complete collections of ideogram related data, including five separate sketches. Once an ideogram reoccurs, or after taking the coordinates five times, viewers proceed to Phase 2.

Phase 2 is mechanically identical to that in Basic SRV, but now the viewer is free to "stand back" and look at the overall target site with a wide-angle perspective. The data are not limited to a particular gestalt (i.e., one ideogram). The sensory perceptions from all of the perceived gestalts compete (in a sense) for the attention of the viewer's subspace mind. Thus, the data that are perceived in Phase 2 are generally those that make the strongest impressions on the viewer 's consciousness.

Phase 2 prepares the viewer to assemble the previously collected Phase 1 sketches into one composite sketch. This new sketch is performed in Phase 3. The Phase 3 page is positioned lengthwise (which, again, means the long side of the page is placed horizontally). Viewers can spend some time constructing their Phase 3 sketch, carefully contemplating the intuitive feel of the emerging sketch and placing each component in its appropriate place.

None of the previously sketched Phase 1 drawings need to be placed in the Phase 3 sketch. Indeed, many accurate Phase 3 sketches often do not appear elsewhere in the session. But viewers can place modified forms of any of the previously obtained sketches in the Phase 3 drawing should the intuitions be so directed.



Enhanced Phase 4 is highly interactive and nonlinear. With Basic SRV, the structure is predominantly sequential and linear, taking the viewer from one step to another, allowing minimal structural flexibility. This limits the intrusion of the conscious mind into the data collection process. Advanced practitioners of SRV are sufficiently familiar with both the structure of the session as well as the "feel" of the data such that they can take advantage of a greater degree of structural freedom as they interactively pursue their quest to understand the target.

Using Enhanced SRV, viewers work with five pieces of paper simultaneously. Each page is used to accomplish something different from that of the other pages. The first page is the normal Phase 4 matrix. The viewers work the matrix and go after the "Big Three" in the same fashion as with Basic SRV. However, there are some differences in the way viewers conduct other aspects of Phase 4, all of which are described below.


Tactile Probing

With Enhanced Phase 4, viewers extensively use their hands, and even their bodies, to explore the target. Once viewers have a mental image of the target, however fuzzy, they can then use their hands to "feel" the target, both externally and internally With external probing, viewers tend to run their hands over the outline of shapes of things at the target site, like structures, mountains, and even faces.


With internal probing, viewers press their hands (usually from top to bottom, although there is no rule here) through the target, perceiving internal aspects of structures, and so on. In one of my own sessions, I clearly perceived that a structure had three floors during an internal probe. I made this determination using my hands. I also perceived that there were subjects on the third and first floor of the structure.

Tactile probing is not limited to the use of the hands. One can also place one's head, or even one's entire body into the target at any given spot. For instance, in the example above, I then placed my head inside the structure to take a look at what was on each floor. This was done by literally bending my head forward while sitting at my desk and placing my head in the middle of the projected image of the structure. I then discerned that the top floor contained two subjects, one a male and the other a female. The bottom floor had a large number of subjects milling about.

Sometimes a viewer needs to explore a larger image of the target, or perhaps a component at the target site, such as a complex structure, or even a tunnel that goes through a mountain. To accomplish this, the viewer can back away from the desk and mentally project the image of the target into an empty area in the room. The viewer can then walk or crawl into the target or target component to perceive what is necessary

After all tactile probing is completed, the viewer returns to the Phase 4 pages and enters the data in the appropriate places. If the data are verbally described, then the viewer enters the data as ordinary column entries, or as P4 ½ T entries. Here, the T represents "tactile."


Phase 4 Sketches

If at any time during the session a viewer obtains a visual image of the target, or an aspect of the target, the viewer must sketch this image immediately Such mental images can arise during the process of probing the matrix, but they can also result from tactile probing of the target. In Enhanced Phase 4, there are three sketch pages. These pages are labeled Phase 41, Phase 4E, and Phase 4L, where the I, E, and L represent "internal," "external," and "landscape," respectively Instead of page numbers, the viewers write "a," "b," and "c," respectively, in the upper-right-hand corners. All pages are positioned lengthwise.

When perceiving a visual image, the viewer decides whether the image is internal or external. An internal image has a sense of being inside something else. For example, the viewer may perceive the inside of a room, or the inside of a piece of technology If the image is the first obtained during Phase 4, the viewer places the letter A in the physicals column, and then circles the letter. The viewer then goes over to the P4I page, marks a corresponding circled A, and then draws the internal image.

If the mental image conveys the sense of being an external view, such as the outside of a structure, an object (say, a chair), a subject, or anything else, then the viewer follows the same procedure described above, but places the sketch on the P4E page. If this is the second sketch in Phase 4, then the viewer writes a circled B in the physicals column of the matrix, and on the P4E page. The drawing is then sketched near the circled B.

The Phase 4L page is similar to the Phase 3 page. Phase 4L is for putting pieces together. Many target aspects sketched on pages P4I and P4E can be located and redrawn in modified form in the P4L representation of the target. Phase 4L sketches are wide-angle representations of the target. The pieces can be assembled with considerable deliberation as well (that is, there is no reason to rush a P4L sketch). However, the viewer does not have to draw a detailed Phase 4L sketch.


Nor do any of the P4I or P4E sketches have to be transferred to the P4L drawing. Sometimes a P4L drawing is simply a larger or more detailed version of the most important aspect of the target. But the goal is to create a P4L drawing that displays a more complete perspective of the target than is available in any other Phase 4 sketches.

The Phase 4 matrix and sketch pages should be placed in the proper arrangement before beginning Phase 4. All four pages are arranged in a rectangular pattern, like tiles on a kitchen floor. In clockwise order, the matrix page is placed at the lower left, then the P4I page, the P4E, and finally the P4L page, next to the matrix page.

This arrangement creates a fluid interactive working area. The viewer must not have to search for the correct page when the need comes to move to a particular sketching area, or when referring back to other aspects of the target.

Most viewers fill up multiple Phase 4 matrix pages. After the first matrix page is filled, that page is removed and a new matrix page is inserted in the same spot. If the page number for the first matrix page is 9, then the next matrix page is number 10, and so on. The sketch pages use letters. When the session is finished, all of the numbered pages are stacked sequentially first, followed by all of the sequentially arranged sketch pages.

When probing sketches (part of the "Big Three"), viewers sometimes use the back end of the pen rather than the point when probing is extensive. These data are often shown to others, and are sometimes displayed on the Internet as well as in print. In this way advanced viewers avoid degrading the publication quality of their data by scattering too many probing marks on their drawings.


An Analytical Worksheet in Phase 4

It is often necessary to explore the target in Phase 4 using some of the analysis techniques of Phase 5. This is particularly true of symbolic diagrams that allow the viewer to describe relationships between various subjects, or between subjects and objects. Such abstract diagrams are not sketches, and thus cannot be placed on a sketch page. These are executed on a Phase 4 worksheet page, or Phase 4W page, where the W represents "worksheet." The viewer creates this worksheet together with the Phase 4 sketch pages.

The Phase 4W page is set lengthwise, and "P4W" is placed centered at the top of the page. The page "number" is d. The worksheet page does not need to be arranged in any particular place in front of the viewer. Normally it is kept to the side until needed.

A symbolic diagram in Phase 4 resembles that done for Phase 5. The viewer needs to draw two symbols (if there are two components to the symbolic diagram), label these symbols, and then draw a line between them and label this line "relationship." The viewer then enters the labels for each of the symbols in the Phase 4 matrix in the appropriate columns, all along the same horizontal row.


The word "relationship" is placed in square brackets in the concepts column on the same horizontal row as the labels for the symbols. If one of the target aspects being explored is a subspace aspect, then the label for that aspect is entered in either square brackets or parentheses in the subspace column.


The choice of square brackets or parentheses is determined by whether or not the word used to label the target aspect originates from the viewer's own data (which would normally be the case with a solo session). If both target aspects being explored are physical aspects (such as a subject and a structure), then the labels for both aspects are placed in the physicals column, separated by a slash, in one set of either square brackets or parentheses.

It is permissible to combine one square bracket with one parenthesis if one label does not originate from the viewer 's own data while the other label does. For example, entering "[central target subject/structure)" in the physicals column indicates that the words "central target subject" does not originate from the viewer's own previously obtained data, yet the word "structure" is an earlier matrix entry.

The viewer then probes the symbols on the P4W page, as well as the relationship line, and enters whatever data results from these probes in the Phase 4 matrix.


A New Level-Two Movement Exercise

Most target cues contain a variety of diverse qualifiers that address separate aspects of a target that the tasker wants explored. In order for advanced remote viewers to shift their awareness through these separate aspects, a modified form of a level two movement exercise is used.


The cue is as follows:

Move to the next most important aspect of the target and describe.

This cue is often used three or more times in a session. One stops using it when either repetition or tiredness appear. Advanced remote viewers do not use level one movement exercises with as much frequency as novices, since they do not lose contact with the target as easily.


Thus, advanced viewers have more time in the session to execute a larger number of level two movement exercises. Experience has shown that the above level two movement exercise is highly effective in assisting a viewer to obtain a wide variety of target data.



Whenever viewers have a two-response question that needs to be answered in a session, they can use an advanced binary procedure to get the answer. To execute a binary viewers put a letter (circled) in the concepts column of Phase 4, just the same way one would put a letter in the physicals column while making a sketch of something in Phase 4. Viewers then go to the Phase 4W page, write the letter (circled) and then do the binary procedure on that page.


To do the procedure, viewers first write the question that needs to be answered. They then draw a long rectangle with a line down the center. The possible answers to the question are written at that time, one above each half of the rectangle. Viewers then put their pen in the center of the line that divides the rectangle, and the pen flies immediately to the correct side. An arrow head is added at the end of the quickly drawn line. Viewers then probe the centers of both halves of the rectangle to confirm their findings.

Binaries are very common in Enhanced SRV, especially near the end of a session. Some viewers even ask if they have satisfied the purpose of the target cue (or if they need to continue with the session). The following is an example of a binary procedure.

Appendix 3

The traditional use of remote viewing has been to perceive physical objects, structures, individuals, groups of people, and activity Only rarely has remote viewing attempted to explore societies or social organizations. The previously existing protocols were not designed to do this, and so even the best remote viewers were severely challenged in this regard.


Since I am a social scientist by profession, naturally my interests led me to want to use remote viewing to examine politics and societies. I developed new remote viewing protocols that directly address social and political concepts. These are called Social and Political SRV Protocols, or SPP.

This appendix explains how the new SPP protocols work. Readers should realize that our subspace minds are not limited to only describing physical information. Nothing is hidden from the human soul, even descriptive information regarding other societies.


We not only can perceive places and events, we can use remote viewing to examine how entire societies operate regardless of their location, or even the time when they existed.


SPP Phase I

SPP has five phases. It begins similarly to SRV, although preprinted templates are used throughout all phases of SPP. Copies of these templates can be found (free) on the Internet website,

Phase 1 of SPP is called "Macro Entry." The "macro" aspect of the target is its largest population unit. For example, if the target involves a country, the macro aspect would be the overall population of that country. The goal of Phase 1 is to describe the various groups that make up that overall population. Thus, we are "entering" the larger society and breaking it down into its subcomponents, one component at a time. The choice of subcomponents is often determined by the target cue (which is not shown to the viewer until after the session is completed, of course).

In Phase 1, the target coordinates are taken as usual, followed by an ideogram. The ideogram is described in the normal fashion. The viewer then probes the ideogram and declares the basic descriptors, which are typically

(1) physical or subspace, and

(2) beings, subjects, or animals.

With SPP we are fundamentally interested in describing the characteristics of organized living entities. It is therefore important to perceive what kind of entities we are examining, and whether or not the entities are physical beings living in physical space.

The viewer then probes the ideogram again in order to determine if the distributional characteristics of the target population are at the macro, sub-macro, or micro levels. If the ideogram is describing a population at the macro level, the viewer perceives that the information associated with the ideogram is of the highest level of social aggregation relevant to the target. For example, if the target was a multilevel approach to Israeli society, the macro perception would include the intuitive sense of the entire populace, both Jewish and Palestinian.

After probing the ideogram, if the viewer perceives a sub-macro quality, this indicates that the viewer is discerning distinctions between the separate groups in the society. Returning to the example of Israeli society, this could mean that the viewer is starting to perceive the separate Jewish and Palestinian populations within the Israeli society, or perhaps the subpopulations within these large groups.


For example, among Jewish Israelis, there are a minimum of three distinct subpopulations (The Ashkanazi, Sephardim, and Falasha). Using another example, if the macro target was Belgian society, the two major sub-macro components of that society would be the Flemish and French speaking populations.

If the viewer perceives a micro-distributional characteristic to the ideogram, this would indicate that the ideogram represents the smallest aggregate unit within the population that is permissible given the target qualifiers. This could be small groups within a population, or perhaps even a single individual, although this is not the typical use of the distributional ideograms.

The viewer then attempts to identify the type of distribution that is captured by the ideogram. For example, the ideogram could describe the distribution of species within a population. On the other hand, the ideogram could identify the distribution of authority, culture, ideology, political orientation, or even group fragmentation of a society.

The viewer then probes the ideogram once again to perceive the distinct social components or groups that are associated with the target. If the viewer perceives descriptive aspects of these groups, then the viewer describes all of this in Phase 1.

In the final part of Phase 1 the viewer draws a schematic diagram of the society or the social component identified by the ideogram. The various parts of this symbolic diagram can be labeled in general terms.
Phase 1 is repeated between three and five times. With each repetition, the viewer takes the coordinates, draws an ideogram, and then probes the ideogram.


Usually each repetition of Phase 1 addresses a separate aspect of the target population. Thus, for example, if the macro target was Belgium and Phase 1 is repeated three times, then the first pass may identify Belgian society, the second the French speaking sector in Belgium, and the third the Flemish speaking sector.


Phase 2TM

Phase 2TM obtains more detailed information of the largest unit (macro) of the target population. For this reason, this phase is labeled Phase 2TM (for target macro). If the purpose of the target is to describe the society of United States, then the target macro would be the overall population of the U.S.

The viewer enters information from top to bottom, typically probing on the punctuation (often a colon) at the end of each cue, as with Phase 2 in Basic SRV. But SPP uses some other probing techniques as well, such as focus ratios.

Focus ratios identify a binary division of a target populace. A focus ratio is the relative proportion of one type of activity when compared with another. For example, the subspace/physical activity focus ratio describes how much target activity resides in the subspace arena relative to the amount that resides in the physical realm. If the target was a prayer meeting, then one would expect the subspace/physical focus ratio to be higher (reflecting more subspace activity) than if the target was a football game (assuming, of course, that people are watching the game rather than praying for a victory).

Focus ratios can be used for many purposes. In SPP their primary usages are to estimate the level of subspace (relative to physical) activity and to identify the relative usage of telepathy for communication within a population when compared with physical language.

Phase 2TM also uses a specialized technique to analyze relationships. The first instance of this technique is in probing the collective relationship between the psychology of the subspace and physical aspects of the macro target group. The relationship procedure has three columns. The middle column is always labeled "relationship." When examining the subspace and physical psychological relationship, the left column is labeled "subspace" while the right is labeled "physical."


The procedure begins by having the viewer probe the subspace column, and then draw an arrow to the center of the relationship column. The data that are perceived are entered into the relationship column. The viewer then probes the physicals column and draws an arrow from the physicals column into the center of the relationship column. The data, as before, are entered into the relationship column. This is repeated until the flow of data subsides.

Phase 2TM also uses this technique to explore the psychological relationship between the macro and sub-macro groups. In this case, the left column is labeled "sub-macro groups" while the right is labeled "macro-society." For example, if the macro-society was Germany during the period of the Nazis, the sub-macro groups might include Catholics, Protestants, Protestant peasants, Jews, etc. The relationship between the larger society and these groups would be perceived during column probes and subsequently entered as data in the relationship column.

The final specialized Phase 2TM procedure in need of description here is the "consciousness map." This is used to extract emotions and concepts associated with the collective consciousness of the target populace. This consciousness can have two aspects, subspace and non-subspace. "Non-subspace" is used as a label instead of "physical" since there is no need to assume a binary structure to all life. There may indeed be levels of existence within which many beings live that are not as dense or heavy as human physical reality, even though some such levels may be close to that of physical reality.

The consciousness map procedure uses both non-subspace and subspace columns separated by a circle with a dot in the middle. In each of the columns, there is a space for emotions and concepts. The viewer executes the consciousness map by probing the center of the circle (the dot) and then drawing a line to either the emotions or concepts space under each column. The circle represents the collective consciousness of the target populace. The dot in the center of the circle locates the viewer in the center of that collective consciousness (as compared with a peripheral location, say, within a sub-macro group).


Phase 3TM

Phase 3TM is a schematic representation of the target macro. Again, the "target macro" is the widest angle perspective of the target as it is defined in the target cue. The Phase 3TM incorporates both Phase 1 and Phase 2TM data. By the time the viewer completes Phase 2TM, the viewer is beginning to have a fairly complete perspective of the larger society as defined by the target cue, as well as many of the important groups that are located within the target macro. All of this is sketched in Phase 3TM.

Schematic representations of the target often employ a circle or other representative symbols, as well as lines that connect the symbols. The viewer labels each representative symbol. Each symbol typically represents a group within the target macro. The convention is to label the various groups in the target macro as G1, G2, and G3.


It is not advisable to identify more than three groups at this stage, since a remote viewing session using the SPP protocols and three identified groups will likely take two hours to complete, which is about the maximum amount of time most people can productively spend remote viewing in one sitting. It is permissible to identify fewer than three groups.

It is often possible to understand how a society is organized by examining the schematic representation of the various groups within it. For example, if the schematic representation of the target includes a series of concentric circles, this would indicate that the society has a central core around which all other groups are organized. On the other hand, if this schematic representation includes separate circles, none of which have the same center, then the groups may be more autonomous in their organization, and there may not even be a central core to the target macro.


Phase 4GB

Phase 4GB follows Phase 3TM, and it closely parallels the structure of Phase 2TM. The "GB" in Phase 4GB stands for "group breakdown." After the target macro is sketched in Phase 3TM, the various groups that are identified in Phase 3TM are then examined sequentially in Phase 4GB, one at a time.

In the beginning of Phase 4GB, each particular group is identified. The identifying words are those that are used to identify each group's representative symbol in Phase 3TM. When Phase 4GB is completed for one group, a new set of pages are used to initiate the same data collection process for the next group, and soon.
Each repetition of Phase 4GB ends with a summary of the data in this section labeled "Phase 4GB OPEN."


These summaries act as crucial points of synthesis for the viewer. The summaries allow the viewer to tie various points together that might otherwise be left unconnected given the sequential nature of the template.
Societies are not made up of isolated and separate individuals.


Wherever there are sentient beings, they organize themselves. Groups and social structures are the natural outcome of subjects who interact with each other. These organized collectives have their own intelligence. Individuals participate in groups, and just as individuals make decisions, groups also make decisions. All of the subtleties of group intelligence are perceivable to the remote viewer.


For example, the group intelligence of a riot is much different from that of a tea party. Similarly, the society of Germany under the Nazis during the 1930s was much different from Canadian society in the 1980s. The remote viewer typically perceives all of the component data for each of the various groups identified in each execution of Phase 4GB. In Phase 4GB OPEN all of the component parts can be brought together to more clearly describe the total sum of all of these parts.


Phase 5: Macro-Society Developmental Trajectory

Much remote viewing evidence suggests that time does not exist. Rather, it appears to be a limitation of perception. When we live in the physical realm, we focus our perception sequentially and events that are in the past are available to our minds only through memory. But when we remote view, we directly witness the actual events. Thus, all events in the past, present, and future still exist, and it is our perceptual limitations that create the illusion that only the present exists.

Phase 5 contains a line that, at first glance, appears to be a timeline. But time is irrelevant here. We are not interested in measuring months, years, or days. Rather, we want to describe the flow of history for a society. Phase 5 begins with the identification of a beginning and an end in a society's developmental history. These points are labeled A and Z. These points "bookend" the period of interest for the given society.


The viewer then probes the line connecting points A and Z to determine the location of other significant points in the society's development. The viewer then enters the data for each one of these points in the appropriate spaces below the line. The viewer also describes the periods that lie in between the primary defining points. These periods are identified in Phase 5 by the two boundary points surrounded by square brackets (as with [AZ]).

Sandra Martin, President of Paraview, Inc., is my agent and friend. She is also a very beautiful soul, who has supported my efforts to report my remote viewing research for the better part of a decade. She was with me when hardly anyone had heard of remote viewing. When times were rough she never doubted my ability to contribute something positive to the world.


While she is a successful businesswoman, I have never known her to act selfishly. She lives for a higher purpose, driven by a desire to help our planet. Why I deserve to be represented by her, I do not know. But to those in the Heavens who sent her to me in this lifetime, God bless you.

I am grateful to the many people at Penguin Putnam who have supported my remote viewing research. I have often wondered if it really could be luck that those who work with me are some of the best and most talented people in the publishing business. Some of those people have moved on in their careers. But I remember every one of them. In particular, I am grateful for the inspiration and assistance of Todd Keithly, Danielle Pérez, Brian Tart, and Kari Paschall. There are many people at Penguin Putnam whose names I do not know, including line editors, publicists, and others whose work I have admired. I have been blessed to work with all of them.

Since 1996 I have been involved with an expanding group of extremely talented remote viewers who have been trained at The Farsight Institute. By interacting with them, I have grown immeasurably, both as a viewer and as a person. I could not have written this book without their help and encouragement over the past few years.


When I looked into their faces, I knew that all of this was real, and that all of our mutual struggles to share our experiences with a doubting world was worthwhile. In particular, I am grateful for the continued support of my friends and colleagues, Matthew Pfeiffer, Joey Jerome, Adele Lorraine, Richard Moore, and Denise Griffith. These are very spiritual people with deeply settled intellects. The many others whom I have not mentioned I also hold dearly in my heart.

Special thanks to my wife and my son. A wise African friend once told me that one's family is one's base. I did not understand this when he told me, but I have now experienced the truth of his words.
