"What Is Bilocation?" And An Elizabeth Smart TRV Data Update

By Joni Dourif, PSI TECH President
March 21, 2003

      Bilocation is a word that any avid remote viewing researcher will come across and it is also an experience that all remote viewers have while implementing the TRV® protocols. Technical Remote Viewing® is still a fairly young technology, having only been introduced and put into use for twenty years, since 1983. We have had to develop new terms and definitions as this skill grows and becomes more popular to effectively explain how it works and why it works. Bilocation is one of those words that have been given new meaning by the science of Technical Remote Viewing and therefore it is often misinterpreted. I am continuing our series of TRV Public Education by explaining what bilocation means in TRV terms and what it does and how we deal with it. I am presenting this is a Q and A format using actual questions that we are asked the most frequently.

1) I have often seen the term "bilocation" used in descriptions of how TRV works. What exactly does it mean?


In the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, it is defined as:

Main Entry: bi·lo·ca·tion
Pronunciation: 'bI-lO-"kA-sh&n
Function: noun
Date: 1858
: the state of being or ability to be in two places at the same time

In PSI TECH's TRV Generation II Dictionary, it is defined as:

Bilocation: The required mind state for accurate remote viewing to occur. The remote viewer's attention span is split in half so that half of the viewer's conscious attention is at the target matrix site and the other half is with the viewer tending to TRV structure.


In TRV terms it is quite literally being in two places at once. After the TRV protocols are initiated, the viewer's attention splits. One half of the viewer's conscious and unconscious attention is at the target matrix site (or the target blueprint in the collective unconscious) and the other half is with the viewer's senses tending to TRV structure. Bilocating in TRV structure induces a heightened sense of awareness referred to as "a state of high attention." This is the optimal mind state to effect the remote viewing process.

Some of the physical symptoms of bilocation are:

A) Pausing as if in a daze
B) Forgetting what to do next
C) Waving the pen in the air
D)Misspelling words
E) A disregard for the surrounding activities
F) Rhythmic rocking or tapping
G) Decreased eye movement and blinking
H) Forgetting common words and names
I) A Dazed look in the eyes
J) Decreased body movement.
K) A wavering walk

In the beginning of TRV training, one should not try to operate a vehicle until at least 15-20 minutes after ending a TRV session.

2) When in a state of bilocation, should we lose all perceptual contact with our present environment (i.e., the room we are TRVing in or even our bodies) and be completely absorbed in the target site?

Only half of your perceptual attention is in the room with you (in your body) tending to TRV structure and the other half is (or should be) exploring the target matrix site. If one half lessens or goes over more than 50%, then the viewer will begin to feel like they are "off target" or like the target has become an experience (and then you forget to collect data.) It is essential to maintain a 50/50 balance while bilocating. That is why the speed (cadence and pace) of the TRV structure is so important.

3) Sometimes I find myself in a daze after performing a session. Is this related to bilocation?

Yes, the dazed feeling is the hang over effect of bilocation. This feeling is most pronounced during the first few months while the TRV trainee is first installing and learning the TRV protocols. However, it does dissipate with time. The hang over effect never completely goes away (according to our empirical research) but it does begin to dissipate more quickly after one becomes accustom to the TRV structure and routine. Getting up, walking around, drinking water and writing your session summary helps to dissipate bilocation more quickly. We recommend not trying to analyze the TRV data until at least 20-30 minutes after ending a TRV session.

4) How do we effectively manage our attention to be focused at the target site, while another part of our attention remains attending to TRV structure?

We have found that the actual TRV protocols induce the perfect state of bilocation. The viewer must progress in a rhythmic type of cadence and speed, going from decoding the ideogram in stage 1 to the stage 2 sensory data and the kinesthetic contact of the Stage 3 sketch and then to the sorting of abstract data in the stage 4 table; all the while dealing with imagination and personal feelings according to the way TRV structure dictates. It's a perfect system.

5) Is there any way to "force" bilocation to occur?

We can induce a forced state of a 50/50 bilocation by adhering strictly to TRV protocols. There is also a more vague and less precise type of bilocation that is forced by using the Ultra Meditation and Brain Supercharger products (available at These other states of bilocation are induced for various reasons such as passive learning, stress reduction, and/or relaxation.

6) People who utilize altered states or O.B.E. experiences do not write down information while they are in their mind states. Isn't that a more exciting and fulfilling experience?

Yes, there are people who practice OBE's ("out-of-body" experiences) who recount having thrilling and profound experiences. The OBE's were experimented with for Intel collection purposes in the department of defense before remote viewing protocols were discovered. The results were minimally successful because the person who had the OBE could not effectively recall the details and information that they were meant to gather on their data collection mission. They tried having a monitor sit next to the person while he or she was in the OBE state to document the data but the experience itself still often overwhelmed the OBE participant. The part of consciousness that sorts out information and places it into categories does not engage properly in an uneven state of bilocation; thus the OBE participant had no tool box to work with for data collection purposes.

7) After about 12 level 1 targets, during an S3 sketch, I began seeing an image to the left of my vision, which later turned out to be a darkened piece of an arch way. I'm not sure if this was the beginning of bilocation or something else? After doing a few movements, does bilocation slowly creep in and does it stay there until you consciously make it go away?

The process of the TRV induced state of bilocation is the mandate to collect information using all of our senses. That includes, visual, smells, sounds, tastes and kinesthetic contact. However, we are also dealing with the other 50% of our conscious state that is suppose to be tending to TRV structure. When we slip out of TRV structure, (this usually occurs by slowing down) imagination and judgment begin to infiltrate the data collection process.

Signs of infiltration are:

A) Slowing down
B) Trying to discern if you are "on target" or "off target"
C) Worrying about being wrong or right
D) Questioning the outcome of the TRV session
E) Trying to guess what the target is
F) Becoming creative with the data
G) Persistent distraction of external stimuli
H) Continuous engagement of personal feelings
I) A feeling of knowing what the target is

(All of the above stated symptoms of infiltration occur while the remote viewer is remote viewing.)

8) When bilocating, are we actually "going" anywhere?

This question is often asked by RV researchers and RV novices. When we are exploring a target via TRV, we are directing our attention to a specific blueprint (or topic) in the collective mind (or The Matrix.) As we initiate the TRV protocol and become bilocated, we begin to sense the target, smell the target, hear the target and see fleeting images of the target, as well as kinesthetically feel the target. We can actively experience the target while we passively document its data. We do not actually "go" anywhere even though at first it may feel that way. As we learn how to manage our attention, we become accustom to the feeling of bilocating only the required 50%.

It is difficult for a non-TRVer to understand this process because it is very much like trying to explain what it feels like to swim or ride a bike. One does not really know about swimming or riding a bike until one has had the experience. It is difficult to explain TRV also because there was not another method like it beforehand, so there is no comparison or template to fall back on. This is why there is the continuous necessity to separate remote viewing away from the rest of the parapsychological and psychic processes. The ideas of TRV were scattered throughout the fields of psychology, philosophy and parapsychology but it wasn't until 1983 that these idea were formulated into a breakthrough method that created a teachable system that any person could learn: Technical Remote Viewing.

That's all for this week…

An E. Smart TRV Data Comparison Update

March 21, 2003

      As the news trickles out about what really happened to Elizabeth Smart, we will keep an ongoing watch on how our TRV data compares to the actual sites and events and release information as it becomes known.

       Last week, we discovered that Elizabeth had been taken to an area and held only miles from her family home from June to October. This area was also only miles from "This is the Place Monument Park" that PSI TECH indicated, in August, was the closest identifiable unique feature to Elizabeth's location. This Is The Place Monument sits within state owned property which borders the neighborhood where the Smart famliy lives

       It is important for us to compare our data as it surfaces in this case in order to perfect our analysis data collection strategies and to keep the public informed of the facts.
