How Optimum TrajectoriesTM
Can Affect One's Future
By Joni Dourif
January 4, 2002
Every year, since learning Technical
Remote Viewing®, on New Year's Day, I have made a point of
remote viewing my Optimum Trajectory for the following year. I have
noticed some very subtle yet profound changes. I attribute these
dynamics to my traditional practice of performing OT's (Optimum
Trajectories) on a regular basis.
Joni Dourif, President of PSI TECH
The Matrix, which Technical
Remote Viewers access to download information
from during a TRV session, is both static and dynamic. The Matrix is like
a giant library of collected consciousness in which there is stored patterns
of information, like blueprints or books, of all that exists, has
existed, or has the potential to exist: events, ideas, things, places,
thoughts and people. It is dynamic because it records all thoughts and
actions of all that lives, breathes and grows. Every thought that one
thinks, and actions proliferated, adds a paragraph or page to a book which
is simultaneously growing with the added recorded data.
The Matrix is also
static because all the thoughts and actions that have
previously occurred have been recorded and are stored like pages in a
history book. We call these "Current Trajectories." An individual's
thoughts and actions in numbers and over time create cultures, and the
actions of cultures ultimately create entire eras. These past deeds have
created "grooves" in the fabric of the Matrix and like a well-traveled
path in the forest, determines the direction of a future destiny. This
is a known phenomenon. Most
people are swept up into these paths because it feels easiest, like the
path of least resistance.
(Click here for a poignant poem on "The Calf Path.")
We can live our lives
following our "current trajectories," not ever
realizing that an alternate, more fulfilling life could be obtained as
simply as "just a slight step to the side." Optimizing our lives
certainly is not a new concept to western culture. The past three
decades have deluged us with self-help mania. We have been presented
with books, music, meditations, spiritual healings, physical exercises,
health foods and more to help us to partake and possess life's optimal
offerings. However something was missing.
Many Remote Viewers at PSI TECH have
found that we are able to take that
first step to the side and slip onto our optimum paths by utilizing TRV
technology. We discovered that in order to follow our Optimum
Trajectories, we had to perceive them first.
Perceive not visualize.
Perception is that sixth sense that we learn to
tap into by learning TRV. Visualization is forced imagination designed
to influence mood. Do not confuse the two because they are diametrically
opposed to each other.
Perceiving ones Optimum
Trajectory is an active procedure because we
have learned to download data using a specifically designed application
but paradoxically the download process itself is passive. It is a robotic
function which allows free flow of data. The skill itself is the effort
but continued practice of the application empowers us to download more
data as we improve our TRV skills
The concept of these
"trajectories" or grooves is similar to that of
a field. If enough people walk in the same direction, in a field of tall
grass, eventually a path is worn - a trajectory. In these current
troublesome times, for
example, enough thoughts and ideas and actions from so many people
regarding racial and religious hatred has built up over such a long
period of time, that the inevitable current trajectory is war. On an
individual level, this
holds true as well. Now imagine you can TRV your Optimum Trajectory and
remove yourself from the morass. Perhaps you will become aware of a new
may present in the form of an idea, or an abandoned dream,
reoccurring fleeting thoughts, or perhaps in a completely new concept. Every individual is different in this regard and the optimum
opportunities can vary from a phone call away, a trip to be made, a
choice made clear, or a feeling manifest. The possibilities are
abundant and often times, they are just running parallel alongside you.
That simple step
aside can offer you a direction that can lead you to
optimum happiness and fulfillment. The more you TRV your "Optimum
Trajectory" on a regular basis, the deeper the groove you create along
the path of your personal
future. You have actually opened it up and helped your Optimum
Trajectory come into fruition. When this begins to occur, after many
times over the same
path, the event or trajectory becomes so locked in the "Matrix", that
living an optimal life feels effortless and eminently fulfilling.
Happy New Year!
Note to trained TRVers. I cue it "Joni/Optimum Trajectory," purposely
leaving the qualifier "open ended" so that I can compare and measure the
sequence of times and events from the past years' trajectories. More on
One of Joni's favorite poems:
The Calf Path
One day, through the primeval wood,
A calf walked home, as good calves should;
But made a trail all bent askew,
A crooked trail as all calves do.
Since then two hundred years have fled,
And, I infer, the calf is dead.
But still he left behind his trail,
And thereby hangs my moral tale.
The trail was taken up next day
By a lone dog that passed that way;
And then a wise bell-wether sheep
Pursued the trail o'er vale and steep,
And drew the flock behind him too,
As good bell-wethers always do.
And from that day, o'er hill and glade,
Through those old woods a path was made;
And many men wound in and out,
And dodged, and turned, and bent about
And uttered words of righteous wrath
Because 'twas such a crooked path.
But still they followed -- do not laugh
The first migrations of that calf,
And through this winding wood-way stalked,
Because he wobbled when he walked.
This forest path became a lane,
That bent, and turned, and turned again;
This crooked lane became a road,
Where many a poor horse with his load
Toiled on beneath the burning sun,
And traveled some three miles in one.
And thus a century and a half
They trod the footsteps of that calf.
The years passed on in swiftness fleet,
The road became a village street;
And this, before men were aware,
A city's crowded thoroughfare;
And soon the central street was this
Of a renowned metropolis;
And men two centuries and a half
Trod in the footsteps of that calf.
Each day a hundred thousand rout
Followed the zigzag calf about;
And o'er his crooked journey went
The traffic of a continent.
A hundred thousand men were led
By one calf near three centuries dead.
They followed still his crooked way,
And lost one hundred years a day;
For thus such reverence is lent
To well-established precedent.
A moral lesson this might teach
Were I ordained and called to preach;
For men are prone to go it blind
Along the calf-paths of the mind
And work away from sun to sun
To do what other men have done.
They follow in the beaten track
And out and in, and forth and back,
And still their devious course pursue,
To keep the path that others do.
But how the wise old wood-gods laugh,
Who saw the first primeval calf!
Ah! many things this tale might teach --
But I am not ordained to preach.
Sam Walter Foss (1858 - 1911)
Answers to Technical Remote Viewing®
By PSI TECH Staff
January 11, 2002
Q. Have you had many "natural" psychics learn Technical Remote Viewing? Does
having developed ability help or hinder their training?
A. Over the years that I have been training people at PSI TECH, I have witnessed many different types of
people who already possessed varying degrees of previously developed psi functioning.
Let me give you some examples of what I mean; We had trainees who in the beginning would not only TRV
their blind target but would also include the target data and sketch the next target in the file cabinet. There
were others who were tuned into telepathy and would include the tasker's thoughts and preconceived
notions about the target. In other incidents, if the tasker changed the target at the last moment the viewer
would include the discarded target and would overlay sketches and data with the final chosen target data.
One time a trainee requested a "double blind" target exercise (i.e. the tasker/monitor was also blind to the
target). The monitor decided during the first S3 that he knew "which target was in the envelope." The
viewer sketched the incorrect false target in the taskers' mind along with the actual and correct target in
the envelope. There was another trainee who sketched amazingly accurate geographic locations and
people's faces from the beginning of their training. There was another who frequently (from the beginning)
perceived accurate names of the target - this is rare. There was another, who could perceive numbers
accurately from the beginning which is even more rare. (He now discerns numeric codes and works as a
highly specialized contractor for the FBI.) I could go on with many more stories of these types of incidents.
People with naturally endowed psi functioning tend to take larger data bites but due to the (previous) lack
of a structured system (i.e. TRV) there was no way to regulate the data flow therefore they would be subject
to "data dumps" where most of the data was lost or caught up with imagination. Usually the initial ten
percent would be accurate and the rest skewed.
TRV structure is a natural system which enables the innate human psychic function to control and embrace
the entirety of the perceptual data flow, thus, allowing them to recognize and separate out imagination from
psychically perceived data. This leads to correct discernment of data and eventual precision accuracy in the
The challenge to learn TRV for "naturals" is usually working through the initial lack of the "experiential
impact" during their perception retrieval process. Before TRV training they had come to rely on only one
aspect of their perceptual antennae, usually kinesthetic (physical) or emotional functions. This causes an
overload of data flow and subsequently overwhelming feelings accompanied with an inability to deal with the
Another common obstacle is a tendency to "pigeon hole" data and to impress others with one or two pieces
of flashy (usually novel) data. Natural psychics who have derived their identity, income or fame using their
psychic talents have the most difficulty. This is usually because the change in the data distribution system
challenges an established sense of security and feels more like a threat.
Installing TRV structure allows the perceptual data flow to utilize all of the person's senses (physical,
mental, emotional) in a controlled and precise manner so that we may assimilate the data in manageable
bite size pieces resulting in minimal data loss.
Naturals can be more challenged then others at learning TRV because they need to set aside their
previously acquired methods and impose discipline and a new regiment. They normally have a harder time
staying in structure, slowing down the data flow and discriminating imagination from data.
Those who work hard and stay in structure can become extraordinary "all star" TRVers. However, without
installing this skill thoroughly, they are just another random-inconsistent-psychic and there's nothing new
Q. Should I not TRV if I have a cold? It's just minor, no cold medication or anything, but I know you've said in the
tapes if you're tired, hungover, etc...it will impede the session. I'm not tired or anything, just sniffly. Will that
A. As for any other attention-required skill, a cold (see Physical Inclemency comments in your course) will also
affect the quality of your TRV session.
Q. I had this happen to me on a target you didn't give me. I was in S3 and moved to the next aspect. When I got
positioned and started placing the pen to the paper, it felt like the paper was an inch thick and I was pushing
through it. I developed tunnel vision and felt like I was moving towards that spot on the paper. I started
sketching then pulled away. I assumed this was bilocation and took a bilo break. I was able to back out very
quickly and felt solidly in the here and now. Was this indeed bilocation?
A. When "bilocation" occurs during a TRV session, the viewer is beginning to shift into an altered state, and a
'break' is indeed required. If you do not take the break, the flow of true site-connected data will come to a
grinding halt, and imagination will take you on a magical mystery tour of your head. The experience of
bilocation is exciting, however -- but then again, so is driving off of a cliff in your car -- both experiences
eventuate in their own forms of disaster. Eschew the 'experience' -- go for the data. This is why altered states were
abandoned, and what the development of TRV was all about.
If your friend happened to be dying of an unknown liver disease, would you rather "experience" her liver,
or accurately describe the cause of the problem?
Q. Is there a "TRV Lite?" It would be for something really basic, like:
"car keys/present location."
Since you all have done this for years, don't tell me that if you lose something or just need a quick answer you
work an entire TRV session just for that? Have you had any success with just asking your body to take you to where your car keys, wallet, etc. are
A. There are no short cuts in Technical Remote Viewing. Would you like the professional pilot of your next 100-mile flight to skip preflight
checks and flight plan? After all, it's just a little "lite" hop. ;-)
Q. If an 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 RV'ing were real, or imagined?
A. Preparing the target in that manner restricts the search and constrains unconscious to the island, unless
you are working it as a project. Then, the island will be perceived as the target; any novelty will arise as
site aspects. 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. Can children successfully learn TRV?
A. A nine-year old can do well with basic TRV skills (S1-3), but is
ill-equipped to tackle intermediate techniques. Young children lack the lexicon to accurately describe certain events and experiences (e.g. - a child
would not be able to perceive if someone was in mourning and could only describe the person
as being "sad.") Just have her/him sit down at the table, with you as their trusted coach, and treat the learning process
like a game -- no more than 10 minutes at a time, no more than 2 sessions a day.
Q. I'm just beginning TRVing.A friend and I have done 3 sessions, 2 of them with
reasonable success, all things considered, and one RIGHT ON! It just blew
me away how well this system works...I haven't a clue as to why...but it
does! Is it too
late to enter the contest? Can beginners participate? How to enter?
Thanks for making this available to the public. It has broadened my
horizons already with potentials and possibilities. What fun! I look forward
to getting acquainted with fellow TRVers!
A. I'm happy to hear of your success.

Technical Remote Viewing®
Is "Site Specific." What Does That Mean?
By Joni Dourif, President of PSI TECH
January 18, 2002
Question: "I recently saw a remote viewer claim that remote viewing targets from
a target pool (a stack of blind targets that are separately prepared) doesn't work. As I regularly successfully work targets from the online pool, I
was surprised that a remote viewer would state such a thing. Is working targets from a pool problematic when viewers or taskers are not properly trained?"
TRV is a "site specific" method of gathering information.
The reason why Technical Remote Viewing broke the mold in the world of psychic intelligence is because of this very
Joni Dourif, President of PSI TECH
We all share the same five sensory pleasures (and pains) in life; sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste. The manner in which
we utilize each of these senses to collect information is a standardized method. It is also an autonomic process which we
achieve without conscious learning. But how about language? How did we learn to communicate using words?
Someone had to come up with a vocabulary and then we had to train our vocal chords and tongues how to talk.
Talking, unlike our autonomic abilities, still has to be learned. The methodology is a standardized process that we all share
and because it works we do not question whether we have the ability or not. Learning a language "is a known" ability.
We have been doing it for a long time.
However, if I told you that in order to learn Japanese you cannot be exposed to English, what would you say? You
might point to any Berlitz school in the USA. If I told you that you could only learn one language, what would you say?
You might point to the European continent where learning several languages at once is a common occurrence.
It seems that we all have recognized "intuition" for a long time and many if not all of us have experienced it in some way
or another in our lifetimes. Some of us experience it in dreams that come to pass and some of us just have a "feeling" -
some of us "hear" our intuitions and some of us "see" them or "smell" them or even "taste" them. Some of us "touch"
them or manifest them kinesthetically on our skin. But what do all of these intuitive experiences have in common? They
are all information gathering mechanisms that are considered to be "psychic".
The TRV discovery represented a breakthrough because it documented the system in which our brains and minds collect
and gather psychically derived information. The TRV protocols embody the structure of the human beings' natural psychic
Once we were able to come up with a model of how it worked, we were
able to design protocols which mimic the natural process. It proved to be a
consistently repeatable process. We developed a language for intuition and like learning all languages, it improves with
So, if it is suggested to you that you cannot TRV because of another target, book, or picture that is lying near your target, then ask that
person if they cannot tell the difference between Japanese and English or Spanish and Chinese. If an infant can distinguish
these differences certainly an adult human mind can, can't it?
However, there is only one way to really know that this is true and that is by doing it.
Cuing Technical Remote Viewing®
By PSI TECH Staff
January 25, 2002
Question: "I have not yet learned TRV, but often see the term "cuing" used in reference
to the way remote viewers prepare targets and search for information. How does this work?"
Before one remote views a target, one must first "cue" it. The word "cue" literally means, a word or signal used to prompt an entrance, or a signal to begin or enter. When used with Technical Remote Viewing, the cue is the prompt that tells the Matrix what information you need to remote view. It works much the way a library does. When you ask a librarian to get a certain book for you, she asks you what book that might be. For example, The Portable Jung, edited by Joseph Campbell. She would then look under title, The Portable Jung, and you would be directed to the location of the book. If you did not know the specific title of the book, the librarian would turn to the next most specific information on the subject, Jung, and type that into the computer. Although it isn't the specific book, the computer would give me a list of books by Jung, or about Jung, and we could narrow the search from there. When you cue a target, you are doing the same thing. How specific is the information you want to remote view? If you want to remote view the assassination of John F. Kennedy, you would cue the target specifically as if it were a book; thus the cue would look like this: John F. Kennedy/Assassination event. You begin with the most general information, in this case, John F. Kennedy, followed by a slash, then the next most specific part of the cue, in this case, Assassination event. You could continue to add qualifiers to the cue, working to refine it to give you even more specific information about the event. If you do not specify, you are leaving the cue up to the "librarian" or the Matrix, which will deliver information it "deems" the most useful or important. It still remains somewhat of a mystery how the Matrix, or universal mind, picks and chooses the information it supplies in a general cue, and appears to often be user specific, in other words, different information is often given to different viewers. So the more specific you are, the more precise the data you will download from Matrix, just as in a library, when you are looking for a specific book or subject matter.
There are certain problems that arise with cuing. One of the most common is that different words mean different things for different people. For example, say you wanted to find out the purpose of a specific person or group. The word purpose is a very individualized word. A better word to use in your cue might be collective plan, or current plan/plans. Another situation might be that you are trying to locate an item that is missing. Say, you left your bike parked outside a store, and when you came out it was gone. Now, some might want to cue the target: Jane Doe's Bike/thief. The problem with this cue is the word "thief". You are assuming that the bike was stolen, when something else might have occurred. Perhaps a friend of yours saw that your bike wasn't chained, and thought he should move it to a safer location for you. Perhaps a policeman came and moved it for some reason, or perhaps it was in a bike rack with other bikes, and one looked just like yours, and that person took your bike by mistake. While all of these examples are highly unlikely (let's face it, the bike was stolen…), you should never make any assumptions when cuing a target. A better cue to start with would be Jane Doe's Bike/present location.
Another problem that can arise from improper cuing are nonsense cues. One should not assume the reality of something when preparing a target. The classic example is that of Darth Vader. Suppose that a future generation of TRVers dug up an English language newspaper with the very intriguing name "Darth Vader" mentioned in an article. Darth Vader could be assumed to have existed as a real person, whilst the name "Pee Wee Herman" might be assumed to be that of a cartoon character, but Pee Wee would produce a solid TRV target, with similar descriptors from session to session. Not so for Darth Vader as a cue -- an individual viewer would not be able to draw substantive conclusions from any number of sessions -- they would be 'all over the place,' as we say in the TRV profession -- other than that the target relates to abstract ideas connected with an extinct genre of entertainment, and some symbolic figure.
Let's say you wanted to verify a "UFO experience" someone believes that they had. If you cue the target: Jane Doe/UFO encounter, you may run into difficulties. First of all, what if it was not a "UFO"? You don't know what it was. All you know is that you had an unexplained experience. A proper cue would be: Jane Doe/Glowing Ball/Experience. This cue doesn't assume a UFO, or an encounter, but merely narrows your search to information on the experience you had.
An interesting word that can be used in some cues is the word "seed". For example, say you wanted to TRV the meaning of a certain dream you had. Say the dream was swimming in a sea of snakes. On first thought, you might want to cue it: Swimming in Sea of Snakes Dream/meaning. However, you must recognize that multiple/complex meanings could be present in a dream. Also, like a snowball that picks up debris and trash as it rolls down hill, dreams tend to behave similarly (and many dreams have no "meaning"-just the unconscious performing "housecleaning" at the end of the day). The cue that has been found to be most effective in this case is: Jane Doe/Swimming in Sea of Snakes Dream/Seed. In other words, you are asking the Matrix what was the target element that "seeded" (spawned) the dream.
Words are extremely important when cuing, and it is important that a TRVer becomes very conscious of the cuing process. For example, say one wants to know if one is pregnant. If you write the cue this way: Jane Doe/Womb/Present Contents, you will run into difficulty. The qualifier, "present contents" should be changed to "present time", as a womb contains a lot of stuff, with or without a child.
The main problem people run into with cuing is assuming. Don't assume anything. Say you wanted to learn more about psychokinesis. At first impulse, one might cue it: Psychokinesis/Cause. But this is making assumptions about psychokinetic events. It is best to begin with a specific event: Jane Doe's house/yesterday/picture dropping off of wall/cause, or similar cues.
The Matrix may not apply the same kind of logic that individuals do regarding cues. One student asked PSI TECH if this cue were appropriate: radio station's name/financial gain/optimum trajectory. He wanted to ascertain a radio stations method(s) to employ in acquiring the funds needed to maintain operations. The cue is faulty for a couple of reasons. First of all, the radio station in question is both an enterprise, consisting of a number of people, interacting in complex ways, as well as an ensemble of physical structures. That complicates cuing to no small degree. The structures do not have "financial" trajectories, the enterprise does. Now say, unbeknownst to the cuer, a deadly tornado is in the cards for tomorrow afternoon, and the radio station happens to be ground zero, then (without a skilled TRV eye) you might not be able to make sense out of the resulting Idea Template which may depict an empty or flattened structure, with its usual occupants/owners huddled together in Farmer John's root cellar, miles away. The radio station can't "make money", the enterprise can. In the case of this target, the range of performance objectives needs to be narrowed and tighter parameters need to be established in the cue. What are the stations existing and possible sources of capital? If say, advertising is a key source, then use TRV to assist here. We can use the Matrix as a crystal ball to only some degree. It can't do all of our thinking for us.
When cuing your target remember: Go from the general to the specific. Be as specific as possible. Choose your words carefully. And never, ever assume anything. For students who have questions regarding specific cues, you can ask one of the on-line support staff either in PSI TECH's chat room, or in the TRV online classroom. Happy cuing!
TRV Reveals Terrorist Plots
February 01, 2002 SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- In his State of the Union Speech
on Tuesday, George W. Bush revealed that detailed plans have been found in Afghanistan containing
diagrams of American public water facilities. This information was reconfirmed
Wednesday in a report issued by the CIA.
One day after the attacks in New York and Washington occurred on September 11, PSI TECH established
a Remote Viewing Counterterrorism Task Force. This team of fourteen trained Technical Remote Viewers was
tasked with collecting information related
to plans of future acts of terrorism in the United States.
In our October 6th, 2001 Preliminary Report, we stated,
"The attack events that are cued up in our near future
appear to involve using natural resources as weapons,
like infiltrating water supplies using air and/or wind.
The idea of condensation is also present."
News reports published
in November by the Hindustan Times and
The New York Times contained information that verified the aforementioned data from PSI TECH's 911 Project
Preliminary Report. Sketches and calculations were found in Kabul for the manufacture
of a "helium-powered balloon bomb filled with anthrax." The office where
these plans were found was headed by Bashiruddin Mehmood, a Pakistani nuclear
scientist detained in October in Islamabad for alleged links with Osama bin Laden.
"One apparatus or device that we locked on to looks like
an oval shaped balloon or buoy. It is intended to leak and/or
seep highly toxic substances into the air and water and
contains the characteristics of a "time bomb."
In the CIA report issued on January 30, 2002, the terrorists' interest
and potential use
of toxic substances was confirmed. The CIA stated:
"Terrorist groups also have expressed interest in many other toxic industrial chemicals -- most of which
are relatively easy to acquire and handle -- and traditional chemical agents, including chlorine and
phosgene and some groups have discussed nerve agents."
"Terrorist groups are most interested in chemicals such as cyanide salts to contaminate food
and water supplies or to assassinate individuals."
In the State of the Union Speech on Tuesday night, January 29, 2002, George W. Bush
"Our cause is just, and it continues. Our discoveries in Afghanistan
confirmed our worst fears, and showed us the true scope of the task
ahead... We have found
diagrams of American nuclear power plants and public water facilities,
detailed instructions for making chemical weapons, surveillance maps of
American cities, and thorough descriptions of landmarks in America and
throughout the world."
When presenting specific information about the future plans of terrorists,
months in advance
and prior to confirmation,
the data is sometimes initially passed off as pure speculation by those
unfamiliar with the power of TRV technology. But those familiar with
PSI TECH's task force know better.
The crushing defeat of the Taliban in Afghanistan has now given investigators
access to the real and detailed plans
of Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda organization. PSI TECH's TRV data
published in October now speaks for itself. The
following news reports and the President's recent
statements confirm the value of Technical Remote Viewing's use
as a valuable adjunct intelligence collection
method. Quite simply, it is an inexpensive (learned) skill that
can effectively forsee terrorist plans and events four
months in advance of the hard evidence obtained through conventional means. TRV
can be used by properly trained individuals for use in their own personal
safety. It is now obvious to all that the government does not want us to
get too comfortable thinking that we are in the clear or out of danger.
Technical Remote Viewing (TRV) is a structured set of
proven protocols and a highly disciplined
rigorously applied learned skill originally utilized by U.S. Department of Defense
to solve the toughest national security
Founded in 1989, PSI TECH is a privately held company and the first to
bring this skill out of the confines of secrecy and into the private sector.
Technical remote viewing is now taught to leaders in science and technology
as well as civilians in all walks of life. PSI TECH provides its worldwide pool of TRV students
with ongoing technical support and specialized advanced training.
PSI TECH's skilled remote viewers have an edge on the future with
more information resources they can use to protect their home and family.
CIA: Threat of Weapons of Mass
Wed Jan 30, 2002 7:06 PM ET
By Tabassum Zakaria
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The threat from terrorists using a weapon of mass destruction has
increased since Sept. 11, and extremist groups appear most interested in chemicals like cyanide salts to
contaminate food and water supplies, a CIA report said on Wednesday.
The Sept. 11 attacks used hijacked planes as weapons to destroy skyscrapers in New York and
damage the Pentagon near Washington, killing about 3,000 people. It was followed by an anthrax
scare that killed five people and revealed the country's vulnerability to biological warfare.
Since then, extremist groups appear to be increasing their search for weapons that could destroy large
populations using chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear agents, according to an unclassified CIA
report to Congress.
The semiannual report on the acquisition of technology relating to weapons of mass destruction
covered Jan. 1 through June 30, 2001, but a special section dealing with the post-Sept. 11 threat was
"The threat of terrorists using chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear materials appears to be
rising -- particularly since the 11 September attacks," the report said.
Information and technology on weapons of mass destruction was widely available from the Internet and
the former Soviet Union, the report said.
CONVENTIONAL TACTICS FAVORED
Several of the 30 foreign organizations the United States has designated as terrorists have expressed
interest in weapons of mass destruction, although terrorists would probably continue to favor
conventional tactics such as bombings and shootings, the report said.
While extremists, including Osama bin Laden, were seeking a nuclear weapon, there was no evidence
that they had acquired one or the materials to build one, the CIA report said.
"Although the potential devastation from nuclear terrorism is high, we have no credible reporting on
terrorists successfully acquiring nuclear weapons or sufficient material to make them," the report said.
"Gaps in our reporting, however, make this an issue of ongoing concern," it said.
Bin Laden, accused by the United States of masterminding the attacks on America, has pursued
development of chemical and biological weapons in his al Qaeda organization and has had a long
standing interest in nuclear materials, the report said.
"We have uncovered rudimentary diagrams of nuclear weapons inside a suspected al Qaeda safe
house in Kabul. These diagrams, while crude, describe essential components -- uranium and high
explosives -- common to nuclear weapons," the report said.
Among the weapons of mass destruction, extremist groups appeared most interested in chemicals that
could do widespread damage to food or water supplies, the report said.
"Terrorist groups are most interested in chemicals such as cyanide salts to contaminate food and water
supplies or to assassinate individuals."
INTEREST IN TOXIC CHEMICALS
"Terrorist groups also have expressed interest in many other toxic industrial chemicals -- most of which
are relatively easy to acquire and handle -- and traditional chemical agents, including chlorine and
phosgene and some groups have discussed nerve agents," the report said.
"We see lesser interest in biological materials that appears focused on agents for use in small-scale
poisonings or assassinations."
On Tuesday, President Bush accused Iran, Iraq and North Korea of constituting an "axis of evil" for
their alleged pursuit of weapons of mass destruction. The CIA report, completed well before the
speech mentioned all three countries, among others.
It repeated assertions made in an earlier report that Iran remained one of the most active countries
seeking to acquire weapons of mass destruction from abroad.
Iraq was believed to have the capability to produce chemical and biological agents in a fairly short time
and had probably continued research and development associated with its nuclear program, the report
"The Intelligence Community remains concerned that Baghdad may be attempting to acquire materials
that could aid in reconstituting its nuclear weapons program," the report said.
On North Korea, the report for the first half of 2001 said: "We assess that North Korea is capable of
producing and delivering via missile warheads or other munitions a wide variety of chemical agents and
possibly some biological agents."
North Korea, during the second half of 2001 continued trying to procure technology worldwide for its
nuclear program, and the CIA assessed that Pyongyang had enough plutonium for at least one, and
possibly two, nuclear weapons, the report said.
Rumsfeld, Mueller Warn of New Attacks
Fri Feb 1, 2002 1:29 PM ET
- Military and law enforcement officials warned Americans to remain alert as terrorists could be
planning new attacks, far worse than those of Sept. 11.
In separate briefings, FBI Director Robert Mueller and Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld stressed the need for Americans to remain vigilant.
"We're still on a very high state of alert, and we will be for some time,"
In addition, the FBI has issued an advisory to public utilities across the
country warning that a computer from an alleged associate of Osama bin
Laden contained engineering information about dams and reservoirs.
The advisory came amid positive news about one threat, however.
Officials issued a warning last week to the nation's 103 commercial nuclear
reactors that terrorists were planning an airplane attack on a reactor, but
officials now say that threat has been deemed not credible. Officials say
the threat was old, uncorroborated, and the warning was prompted when
it resurfaced through different channels.
Photos of U.S. Sites Found
Other threats continue to concern authorities, however. Officials told
ABCNEWS documents previously found inside Afghanistan raised fresh questions about security
ABCNEWS has learned the documents include photos and diagrams of the U.S. Capitol, major
American cities — including Los Angeles — and power and water facilities, all apparently studied in
detail by bin Laden's advisers. As one senior intelligence official told ABCNEWS, "these clearly
weren't just tourists awed by the architecture."
The documents were mainly pictures or maps with circled locations. Since the documents did not make
any reference to dates, methods of attacks or a specific attack, government sources do not consider
the new information a high-level threat.
At the same time, CIA Director George Tenet sent a report to Congress saying crude diagrams of
nuclear weapons were found in a suspected al Qaeda safe house in Afghanistan. Officials say there is
no indication that terrorist actually have such weapons.
Mueller said Thursday the U.S. campaign in Afghanistan had diminished the ability of bin Laden's al
Qaeda terrorist organization to launch a major attack.
Still on High Alert
With the Super Bowl this weekend and the start of the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City next week,
Mueller said agents are closely monitoring potential threats and strengthening security measures.
"We've moved heaven and earth to provide security, whether it be the Super Bowl or the Olympics,
and I think we've done a good job in enhancing the security," he said.
Mueller said officials know al Qaeda-trained operatives are scattered worldwide, with some perhaps
inside the United States. Some have been arrested, deported and are currently under surveillance.
"There are sleepers in some countries capable of carrying out additional attacks," he said. "We're doing
everything we can to identify those and to make certain those who have the potential for committing
future terrorist acts are addressed."
"Can I say there are none in the United States?" Mueller added. "No, I will not say that. Do I know for
sure there are some in the United States? I would say I believe there are, but I cannot say for sure."
A New War, a New Approach
Rumsfeld, who was pitching the Bush administration's proposed $48 billion increase in the 2003
defense budget at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C., said the traditional approach
to war and security would not work against today's terrorists.
From attacks on computer systems to biological warfare to missile attacks on U.S. cities, Rumsfeld
said the nation cannot rule out any threat.
"Our challenge in this new century is a difficult one — to prepare to defend our nation against the
unknown, the uncertain, the unseen and the unexpected," Rumsfeld said. "Let there be no doubt that
we will likely be surprised again."
Among the lessons Rumsfeld said had been learned from the Afghan campaign was the need to fight
wars using every weapon at the nation's disposal, including economic, diplomatic, financial, law
enforcement and intelligence capabilities; the importance of increasing the communication capabilities of
troops on the battlefield; and the need to no longer wait for attacks to be carried out, but to take
preventive and pre-emptive action.
Mueller said a secure computer network allows the U.S. military, CIA and FBI to share documents
found in Afghanistan. Up to 10 FBI agents have been in Afghanistan to help with the interrogations of
captured Taliban and al Qaeda forces. With some prisoners now in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where
the questioning facilities are better, the agents will not be needed as much in Afghanistan.
The FBI director refused to discuss in detail what agents have learned documents recovered from
Afghanistan. He said the videos of five suicide bombers released by the State Department two weeks
ago have provided useful information.
However, Mueller said, officials still have not been able to determine when the videos were made.
Mueller also added that Saudi Arabia has been helpful in the sharing of various documents and praised
Egypt, Yemen, the United Arab Emirates, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan for their efforts in the war

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 Kyle, and is posted below for all to see.
