TRV 101: Frequently Asked Questions - Folders
TRV 101: Frequently Asked Questions - Folders

   Q: Regarding cue cards in envelopes… I notice that envelopes are required to be white/plain. Envelopes I am currently using have zipcode boxes pre-printed on them. Will that confuse process or is it acceptable?

A: It is advisable to use plain envelopes to avoid any possible complications during the TRV learning/training process.

   Q: When doing the target of the week, in addition to the number sequence, is it acceptable to also include the notation "Target #__" on the file folder?

A: (Not "number sequence" -- Target Reference Numbers). Go ahead, the annotation will not create a problem.

   Q: I suddenly had a thought. Is c/lee a comet, planet or a rock with a really high albedo? Can you give me a good cue to determine the gross characteristics of the object?

A: The failsafe, tried-and-proven, foolproof TRV method:

   Copy/download any astrophoto of the target object.

   Circle the selected point in the photocopy, and write the word "Target," along with an arrow pointing to the circle.

   Place the TRNs at the top of the photocopy.

   This sheet now becomes your Target Reference Material. Prepare a target folder.

   Write the word "Target" along with the TRNs on the folder. Place the sheet inside the folder. Unambiguous target = unequivocal data.

   As always, it is best to run the target blind.

   Q: Today I TRV'ed a target photo instead of a target site due to a clerical error by my partner in the creation of the target envelope. She was sleepy when she was setting it up and forgot to assign a name. Ironically it was a very good session for me got lots of great data like slick and chemical I even picked up on the circle drawn around the target in the picture. However there are three pieces of data that would fit the target and not the photo. I.e. outside, moldy and dripping. All of these would fit with the target of a river bank. So my question is did I morph in data from the actual target, or are these just extremely coincidental AOL's?

A: In cases such as these, unless the photo itself was specified as the actual TRV target, then descriptive/perceptual elements of both "targets" will be present in the session -- unconscious will engage both targets (i.e., the remote site & the Target Reference Material) at the same time.

   Q: I have just finished viewing mod 1 and am developing my targets. At the moment all I have are catalogs at my disposal, no geographic materials or formations. Questions:

   1. Are single items acceptable i.e. shoes, coat, gloves, clock, animals?

   2. In naming my target, how specific should I get? "cat" vs. "white fluffy kitten"?

   3. Can I use a landscape view that has text printed on top of it?

   4. Can I use actual items, as long as they're in the file and properly named such as: paperclip, bobby pin, pressed dried flower, pen, etc...?

   5. Do I need to use only the numbers on the checklist or any pair of 4 digit numbers?

   6. Can I use a pair of 3 or 2 digit numbers?

A: In the beginning, stick with "gross geographical features" until your basic TRV skills lock in. These are by far the easiest targets for beginning trainees. You need not have training feedback (target reference) material (usually photos). But, in training theory, for feedback to be most effective, it must be (1) immediate and (2) aesthetic -- photos are the aesthetic element.

   Otherwise, just select specific named features -- features that are familiar enough to you, so as to allow for ease of comparison with your TRV session results, for example:

   The Statue of Liberty

   Your neighbor's garage

   Loch Ness

   Pike's Peak

   The Mojave Desert

   The Great Salt Flats, Utah

   and so on.

   Stick with (Matrix recognized) habit (ritual) of using a set of two 4-digit numbers -- any will do, as long as they are ambiguous enough to keep you blind. (In this regard, it is best to allow someone else to assign the Target Reference Numbers and, if they know what they are doing, even the TRV targets).

   Re. question 3: There are certain problems that you could run into here, particularly if the target name on your folder/envelope conflicts with the writing. For instance, if the name on your targeting folder was "The Alps," and if you happened to have a magazine photo of the Swiss Alps, but the article accompanying the photo was discussing the resort town of St. Moritz, then both aspects of the Target Reference MaterialTM might very well show up in your data, i.e., mountain and structure gestalts. Remember, anything in that envelope influences the 'view' that your unconscious takes. However, you could easily eliminate this potential bugbear by changing a couple of things, to wit: Simply circle a homogeneous alpine portion of the photo (or photo copy) and, nearby, write the word "target," along with the reference numbers, and draw an arrow pointing from the word to the circle. Then, instead of labeling your folder with any description at all, simply write the word "target" again, next to the Target Reference Numbers on the outside of the folder. Your remote target is now unambiguous -- you will perceive only elements of the mountain gestalt.

   One more thing to remember (even though it is covered in the tape): If only the TRN appears on the outside of the folder, without a target name of any kind, then unconscious will consider the target to be whatever is in the physical folder, i.e., you will be 'remote viewing' and describing a piece of colored paper.

   Questions 1, 2 and 4 address other important aspects of TRV cueing, but save them for later -- I am sure that you are already experiencing information overload.

   Q: I had someone cut out and target a picture out of a National Geographic for me. After doing the session, and looking at the magazine picture closely it became apparent it was a very lifelike detailed painting. My question is: In this type of situation is it typical to have picked up the information as if it were an actual event. The painting was of a 50's style streamlined train running through the desert.

A: It's not a good idea to use a painting, unless the painting is the actual target.

   Q: To anyone who can answer this...

   I have just gotten the intro tape and I have been creating target envelopes as instructed. I was wondering though, if it is acceptable to create a database in a computer with the target name and number for the entry, for example, you would have

   6675 4427 The Eiffel Tower

   as an entry and of course the remote viewer would be given the number and the result would be checked against the entry in the database. This wouldn't be too different from remote viewing the number that Major Dames posts as the target of the week unless he actually creates an envelope.

   I'm a system administrator by trade, so I am just looking for a way to minimize the paper and be able to create a bona fide database. =). With this, you could easily create a small program or a script to take a list of sample target sites and randomly generate numbers for them and store them in a database, further "blinding" the remote viewer, especially if he or she is working solo (I ran into a problem where even when I generated about 20 different targets I would still sort of remember the target according to the number-- I have good memory).

   Any input or comments is greatly appreciated.

A: A number of archived posts address this topic. There is no problem at all with your idea, but bear the following in mind:

   Per modern learning theory, (this is especially apropos in the early stages of TRV training), feedback should be immediate -- and aesthetic. Target Reference Material, in the form of a colored photo of the remote site, ideally fits the 'aesthetic' qualification. So, be sure to attach an appropriate feedback photo to each TRV elementary training target in your electronic target pool.

   One more thing: from time to time, check to insure that Target Reference Numbers (your in-the-blind TRV 'prompts') are unique for each target in any given target pool. Otherwise, target morphing will occur -- unconscious attention perforce tasked with two (or more) jobs at once, vitiating the quality of your work.

   Remember, too, that the Matrix recognizes Cartesian coordinates (ergo the original term "CRV"), which are always unique (as far as space, not time -- added dimensions require different Matrix pattern reference pointers). But, for beginners, do it by the book.

   After you master intermediate skills, you may/can dispense with Target Reference Material, unless doing so would obfuscate unconscious attention tasking. So doing creates the possibly of a useless TRV data dump, resulting from the formulation of a complex (possibly ambiguous/equivocal) cue -- because a good reference "map of the Matrix pattern target area" was not employed to assist unconscious attention with its task. Then again, poorly selected Target Reference Material can screw up a perfectly cued TRV session, for similar reasons.

   Q: My wife has been ripping apart my National Geographic collection (something I did not ever foresee happening much less condoning)to get pictures of suitable targets. My question is ... If the caption on the picture reads "Rub Al Khali Desert, Near the Shaybah Oil Field" and she circled it putting the target ref numbers next to it. Is it reasonable to get data that could be associated with the oil field even though it is not in the picture?


   Q: I have watched the tape regarding how to prepare targets. I'm wondering if it is ok to deviate just a little. Does is hurt NOT to use the manila folder (which goes into the envelope)? Instead I had my sister make up a bunch of targets where she wrote the name of the target and the target numbers directly on the photo which was then placed in a smaller envelope and the target numbers were placed on the envelope. She used a big black marker & put an X on the backside of the photo so there was no question as to which side of the National Geographic page contained the target. I know it is not the same format but it seemed like it accomplished the same thing & was less expensive for me. Is this ok? It seems to work. Any harm done?

A: No, no problem at all, except, do not place the "X" on the 'non-target.'

   Q: On the radio you mentioned that you would be targeting the Alien photos on his site. I remember a while ago someone said you can't use computer images as target reference material.

   If we would like to try targeting these photos what would the target cue be?? Ill make an attempt:

   Raith Photos/Alien (but theres 2 of them?)


   Raith Photos/Obolisk craft thanks

A: Anything can be used as Target Reference Material. The cue, however, must be correct -- it must reference the intended target.

   1. Download a selected photo. Begin with a series of TRV probes.

   2. Prepare a target folder; label the target folder "Object" or "Target" (handle this as a topical search, ergo the italics).

   3. Circle the "object" ("target") in the photo, and place the TRN's next to the circle. Place this in the folder.

   4. Stay in structure; the Matrix will take it from there. You will require at least several sessions for a proper investigation.

   Q: My husband and I are wondering, when you TRV a photograph from a magazine, can you pick up on other aspects not in the photo? For example, I cut out a photo of some children on a sled, sledding down a snowy slope, and when I cut out the photo, I trimmed it just around the sledders, so that all that is in the background is some of the white snow they are sledding on. When my husband remote views this target, would he also pick up on the surrounding area, i.e., maybe the rocky mountains, the sky, etc, even if it's not in the photo? Could he view the cameraman? How would you know you were successful, if you were picking up on these other surrounding things, but they aren't in the photo?

A: Read the archives. The answers to these questions are all there.

   By the way, was your target the photo, or was the photo Target Reference Material/training feedback?

   Q: The activity in the photograph (i.e., the sledders) was target reference material, not the photograph itself. I hand wrote on the front of the photograph, "sledding". Also, printed on the photograph (it was from a magazine) was "Rocky Mountains". You'll probably think I'm an idiot for asking this, but...where are these "archives" you are referring me to?

A: A verb cannot be a TRV target. The Matrix (remember: unconscious is both your best friend, and the master problem solver) went for the next best thing, of course, which was the (remote) event, identified by your Target Reference Material. The background (literally) data produced in the session provided the necessary context, (i.e., snow, incline, trees, etc.) such that the proper meaning could be extracted during analysis. Otherwise, the results of a single TRV session against your selected target could be misinterpreted as downhill racing, roller coaster, or any number of similar things.

   As your TRV skills advance, you will find that, the first Stage 3 sketch will depict, in symbolic form, all of the necessary context (site "aspects"), including the key aspect (the "target"), necessary to piece together the solution/answer to the Matrix-addressed problem/query.

   It is important to remember that TRV consists of three separate tasks, all must be performed correctly for optimum results:

   1. Cueing

   2. TRV Structure (the skill)

   3. Data analysis

   Since experience (including lots of mistakes) is the ticket to success, you have no choice but to roll your sleeves up and jump in.

   It is downright fascinating stuff, though. After all these years in the field of remote viewing, I still find my work exciting; there are some real adventures to be had, "out there" in the Matrix.

   Q: Suppose a word or phrase is in code, could one circle the word or phrase, assign it a TRN and run a session to determine its meaning?

A: Yes. In a similar fashion, TRV is also a very powerful tool to decipher the (lost) meaning of any epigraph/ideograph/hieroglyph (e.g., Easter Island script). In fact, in the hands of a student or professor of ancient (or future) history, TRV could be employed to compile a virtual rosetta stone for any alien languages).

   Q: I was wondering if you write a cue like the one we had, and then place target reference material inside of a specific event, would you get a combination of both the event in the photo as well as the general data in the cue?

A: Yes

   Q: Or does your mind automatically narrow in on the event in the photo?

A: Yes

   Q: For example, if the cue is The Alps, and I put a photo of a team of explorers in bright colors setting up a camp, am I going to mostly get the camp and the explorers, or mostly the Alps, or both?

A: If the cue is only "the Alps" you may get aspects of the campers (regardless if they are in bright colors or not), however, a disciplined TRVer will mainly focus in on collecting data about "the Alps."

   Q: This water thing is tough! I still can't distinguish my event ideograms from my water ones.

A: Concern yourself with your cadence and pace and TRV structure. Stop worrying about what your ideograms look like. The data will surface in the other stages.

   Q: Recently the friend that is making targets for me tried to place a watch battery into the target folder. I was able to discern the target to be small and metallic by the end of the session, but all of the other attributes were nonsensical. Just wondering if it's possible to place a real object in the folder instead of creating a target like "watch battery".

A: Yes. Alternatively, one may also attach a tag, with the written TRN's, to the target object. Keep in mind, however, that this class of targets (i.e., objects) will not elicit a lot of S4 data. So, employ two tools to extract more information:

   1. Target geometry (including a move to the inside of the target).

   2. An advanced movement (see instruction in archives), such as "purpose," "function," "origin," "source," etc. But caution is advised here: 'purpose' or 'function' would yet again lead to a dearth of S4 data, if your target happened to be a grain of sand, for example.

   Q: I have a few wildlife pictures (tigers, birds, etc) and I want to do some training sessions using them as feedback. What would be the best way to cue them in this case?

A: You just did. Note, however, that if you did not have a target reference photo, and labeled the target folder "tiger," then you could end up describing any tiger, at any time -- Matrix choice. Animals and groups of animals -- prehistoric, as well -- are good training targets, primarily because they help the new TRV'er learn to discriminate between various types of life forms.

   Q: Here was the target my husband prepared: A photograph of a small island (more of a tropical rock, really), sticking out of turquoise sea. He circled the island on the photo, with an arrow pointing to the circle, wrote "target", the target numbers, and the name of the island next to the arrow. Here's the question: if the island was circled as the target, and there happened to be a ship wreck just off the beach, underwater (unseen, unknown), would the mind possible RV the more interesting sunken ship, or if the island was circled specifically as the target, would the mind stick to the job at hand? If the first were true, how could one ever know if what he/she was TRV'ing were real, or imagined?

A: 1. Preparing the target in that manner restricts the search and constrains unconscious to the island, unless you are working it as a Module 2 (full session) project. Then, the island will be perceived as the target; any novelty will arise as site aspects.

   2. TRV was created to solve for unknowns. Like any other skill, confidence (trust -- not faith) is acquired via training and practice against knowns, where session feedback is readily obtainable.

   Q: Hi, I am new and working on Mod 1. I am haveing a small problem. I know that you said the random target numbers is nothing but for record purposes, But I quickly memorize (not on purpose, but it just happens) them on the envelops, thus causing me to associate the image with a certian number. So, to my question is it ok for me to use the same number on all the envelops to help stop this?

A: Don't do it; as long as only one target envelope is on the table, it will work -- but will lead to complications, later. Just have a second party assign the random numbers.

   Q: Ideograms are no longer a problem, I think. I'm going through the list much faster, and I even wrote down two words this morning without looking at the checklist! Unfortunately, I seem to hit every single mistake possible while learning.

   My current problem is photos with something on the back.... My S3 sketches are mixtures of the photo I meant to TRV and the photo on the reverse side....very confusing. Someone mentioned this before, I think circling and pointing an arrow to the right photo would work, right? Also, my colors are all whacko... I get three shades of red in a photo that has only yellow and green, but I don't get the yellow or green! I suppose my unconscious and I just need practice....

A: You are not TRVing the photo! The photo is your training feedback! The targets are actual, remote geographical sites, not photos of them.

   Q: Those target reference numbers are random!!! Don't go out buying an atlas! The "coordinate" numbers are simply assigned to the target for organization purposes... You can technically just say "Ready...Set...Go!" and draw your ideogram. I'm not sure about the South Pole, but for pictures, if they are uploaded to a URL, you can simply put an IMG SRC html tag in a message...

A: Cartesian coordinates work perfectly (for geographic locations). Remember, TRV's roots were CRV (Coordinate Remote Viewing). The original experimental program was termed Project SCANATE, an acronym coined by Ingo Swann (for "SCANning by coordinATE").

   Q: In the tapes you mentioned that when you have a photograph, of a place as an example, in your target folder that you would come into it or view it from that frame of reference. My question is if I want to view the place exactly as is shown in the photograph would I continue to use "From the top of the target" or would "From the front of the target" be more appropriate?

A: Yes, when using a photograph in your target reference folder the unconscious will habitually drop in at the point where the photograph was taken. However, remember unconscious is attracted to novelty, so, if there is something interesting there, like an event (keeping in mind that everything is an event) in the near future or near past, unconscious will inevitably be attracted to that data. You can use either or both 'from the top of' or 'from the front of' - movements are used to get closer to the target. So, try 'from the front of' and see if it gives you the specific data you seek - which sounds like replicant representation of a photograph (?)

   We cannot redefine the idea of a target in the collective. A picture of a target is still 'an event' This is a problem that *cough* continues to riddle the experimental ARV'ers.
