2. How often should one remote view to become and
Answer: This will vary, depending on the viewer's desired level of proficiency.
Typically, a viewer who wants to develop and maintain remote viewing skills
at a high level of proficiency will remote view at least twice each week.
This viewer may also act as a monitor from time to time as well. Remote
viewing (full sessions) more than three times a week for an extended period
of time can sometimes produce a level of tiredness (as with any other type
of activity), and if this happens, the viewer should take a break for awhile
in order to approach the remote viewing process fresh. There are exceptions,
of course, and some viewers report both (a) finding the time, and (b) enjoying
to remote view more often.
3. Is it better to view solo or with a monitor?
Answer: Solo sessions and monitored sessions are both useful in their own
ways. Monitored sessions are particularly useful for training sessions and
for conducting sessions on operational targets. Operational targets are
those for which remote viewing information is required for an applied remote
viewing project. In such cases, the monitor can judge whether or not the
viewer has completed the data requirements for the session prior to ending
the session. The monitor can also suggest useful movement exercises to the
viewer in order to assist the viewer in focusing on the appropriate target
elements such that the data requirements can be met. Advanced SRV is designed
to assist the viewer in obtaining similar levels of target completeness
without the use of a monitor. Nonetheless, monitors are sometimes useful
in suggesting movement exercises in Phase 4 of Advanced SRV. Remote-viewing sessions done for public demonstration are typically executed solo.
4. What is the difference between the basic science
stuff done at The Farsight Institute and RV applications?
Answer: Basic science of the remote-viewing phenomenon involves conducting
experiments to better understand the phenomenon itself. This is what we
do at The Farsight Institute. This is much different from conducting remote-viewing sessions for the purpose of finding out information about a target
so that analysts may act on that information. RV applications are designed
for this latter purpose. For example, remote-viewing sessions that were
conducted by the U.S. military for espionage purposes are RV applications.
The Farsight Institute normally sponsors only basic science experiments
relating to the remote-viewing phenomenon.
5. How long does it take to become a good remote
Answer: One can have profound remote viewing experiences rather quickly,
since the ability is considered innate to all normal humans. But to become
really good at remote viewing is like anything else - practice and training
are important. It might be useful to compare remote viewing to studying
a musical instrument. As with any musical instrument, one can make sound
quickly, but it takes longer to be able to consistently make beautiful
