Why Was This Target Chosen for the TRV Contest?
By Joni Dourif, President of PSI TECH
February 8, 2002
Last December we held a TRV Contest in response to a continuous stream of requests to do so. Since
PSI TECH's TRV Advanced Training System is on the verge of release, I thought that this would be
a great opportunity to give the advanced tapes to a winning Technical Remote Viewer (aka
TRVer). However, then I had to go about the task of choosing an appropriate target for the
contest. I didn't want to choose one that would be too easy and I didn't want one that would too
difficult either. So, I thought about it for a few days and decided to choose one that we (PSI
TECH) have been using as a training target for over ten years. To my pleasant surprise, over the
weeks to follow, we had many contest entries. Sessions were sent in from throughout the United States and Canada and
several came from overseas. Yesterday, when the target was unveiled, many people asked, "Why
did you pick that target?" So, I decided to make the answer to that question the subject of
today's The Signal Line E-zine article.
PSI TECH's President Joni Dourif with the target feedback
The target I chose was "The Statue of Liberty." This is a bit of a trick target because it resembles
a person, however, it is a man-made structure. A trained TRVer perceives the ideas of "life-form"
and "man made" within the first few minutes. Then as the viewer progresses through the TRV
protocols, going from general gestalts to more specific percepts, the next ideas that inevitably pop
up are "water, people and activity". The sketches begin to resemble concrete angles with a flat
surface on water and intangible ideas emerge such as: "patriotic and discovery." As our TRVers
get closer and closer to the target, emotions from the people who are present (real time) at the
target site begin to percolate up. Emotions such as "amusement, happy, and awe" in conjunction
with tangible data such as: "island, concrete, landmark, and crowds." Most sketches around this
point begin to mimic images of the unique winding stair well inside of the hollow Statue of Liberty structure.
Several contestants ended their sessions at this point, concluding that the target had something to
do with the "events involving the current war on terrorism." However, had they continued pursuing
the data by employing their skills, they would have realized their rush in judgment.
The TRVers, who continued to persevere against this target, next began to perceive more sophisticated
intangible ideas such as: "historical, right of passage, new land, liberty, freedom, and
immigration." This target is rich with intangibles. The sketches around this point also become
more refined and begin to resemble a crude figure with an arm in the air, on top of an angular
platform, with signs of water at the base.
Now, the emotions of "amusement and awe" of the people at the target site in conjunction with
the ideas of "patriotic and freedom" begin to paint quite a different picture.
Now, let me tell you that every single contest entry (that was in TRV structure) actually "got the
target." Not one of them missed it. However, only a few followed through with a thorough
investigation of the target site and finished downloading the rest of the data. So, in actuality, the
Statue of Liberty is not a difficult target to perceive but it is a very rich one. Rich in history,
meaning, functionality, image and structural detail. This has been a great training target for years
because of the fact that the TRVer who perseveres until the session is completed ends up sketching
the target so successfully that the corroborating data make the end conclusion an obvious one.
Congratulations to (one of) our European TRVers who won the contest!
However, there were many runners-up, as well. Like I said everyone "got the target." Some just
stuck with it longer than others. The
winning session is translated from a foreign language into English, by the viewer, and is posted below for all to see.
