SRV® Vocabulary List

Advanced SRV - Of the three current forms of SRV (Basic, Enhanced, and Advanced) that are used to describe physical targets, this is the most sophisticated. It involves the use of complex pre-printed templates, highly-structured spacial and temporal moving exercises, and significant detail in sketching, probing, and analysis. The intent of the Advanced SRV procedures is to assist the viewer in assembling a more coherent picture of the target by “gluing” various partial perceptions together. This is often used to produce a map of the target and its surrounding environment.

Basic SRV - This is a version of SRV that is used by all beginning viewers. It incorporates all of the essential components of Enhanced SRV, but it does not utilize some of the more advanced sketching and movement procedures.

Bilocation - At some point during the SRV session, the viewer's attention is so strongly directed toward the target that the viewer's awareness is split between his or her physical location and the target site.

Concepts - these are intangible attributes of something that is perceived using SRV. For example, the ideas of "good" or "important" are concepts.

Cue - one or more words used at various points during an SRV session in order to direct a remote viewer’s perception to focus on a target, or perhaps to perceive specialized information for a target. The first cues used in a remote-viewing session are the target coordinate numbers. Subsequent cues are entered into the Phase 4 matrix.

Data types - When remote-viewing sessions are conducted under certain conditions, the data obtained from those sessions are classified as being of a certain “type.” There are six types of remote-viewing data.

Type 1: Solo, viewer front loaded (rarely done, data are usually of poor quality)
Type 2: Solo, viewer blind, target selected from a pre-determined list of targets by a computer or some other tasking device (commonly done)
Type 3: Solo, viewer blind, target assigned by a human tasker (commonly done)
Type 4: Monitored session with monitor front-loaded and viewer blind (very common during training)
Type 5: Monitored session, monitor and viewer blind (commonly done)
Type 6: Monitor and viewer front-loaded (rarely done, data are usually of poor quality)

Decoding - The process of trying to figure out how to describe an intuitive feeling about a target or target component using words.

Deduction - A deduction has two aspects. First, it is a mental conclusion (as in "to deduce") reached during a remote-viewing session. It represents logical mental analysis that may or may not be correct. Second, a deduction is a subtraction from the flow of data. The procedures of Scientific Remote Viewing require that a viewer declare (and thus rid the mind of) all deductions. This is necessary so that the viewer does not carry the impression of the deduction into the remainder of the session, thereby compromising the data.

Emotionals - refers to the emotions that are associated with a site. These emotions can originate from beings actually present at the site. However, a site may resonate with emotionals due to previous or even future events. Emotionals do not refer to emotions experienced by the viewer, which are VFs.

Energetics - a sense while remote viewing that a significant amount of energy is being expended at the target location. This energy can be of any type, such as kinetic or radiant.

Enhanced SRV - a version of SRV that is used by more advanced viewers. It includes expanded sketching procedures as compared with Basic SRV, as well as more specialized movement exercises. (See also Advanced SRV.)

Event - a cue that is used to direct a viewer's perception to a target location during the time of some significant activity.

Gestalt - From Webster's Third New International Dictionary, a gestalt is a "configuration of physical, biological, or psychological phenomena so integrated as to constitute a functional unit with properties not derivable from its parts in summation." With remote viewing, gestalts are normally represented with ideograms (see below).

Guided deduction - a particular type of deduction that occurs at regular intervals in the procedures of Scientific Remote Viewing. In general, such deductions are allowed to occur at specified times so as to release (and thus rid the mind of) analysis that may be developing in the mind during the session but is as yet undetected.

Ideograms - These are marks that are drawn very quickly by a remote viewer, normally in the beginning of a remote viewing session. Ideograms often resemble squiggles, sometimes curvy, sometimes straight, and sometimes with angles. The various characteristics of the ideograms tend to reflect aspects of the target for the remote-viewing session. Thus, there are ideograms for gestalts associated with mountains, structures, land, air, movement, subjects, water, and so on. Ideograms that reflect more than one gestalt are called "complex ideograms."

Magnitudes - the magnitudes of the various dimensions that are perceived in Phase 2 and Phase 4 of Basic and Enhanced SRV.

Matrix - a collection of labeled columns written on a piece of paper while remote viewing. Data are entered into the appropriate columns during the remote-viewing session.

Monitoring levels - When the viewer has a monitor who is listening to and guiding the remote-viewing session, then the level to which the monitor is involved with the data collection process needs to be stated before the session begins. These levels are defined below.

Level 1 (Type 5 data): The monitor does very little guiding at this level. The monitor's primary role is to suggest movement exercises when the data flow slows or stops. The monitor also corrects any deviations from authorized procedures. The monitor can also guide the viewer with respect to a script that specifies movement exercises at certain points during the session.
Level 2 (Type 5 data): The monitor is actively engaged in directing the remote viewer by suggesting numerous movement exercises whenever they may seem appropriate. The data flow does not have to slow for the monitor to suggest a movement exercise. The monitor also corrects any deviations from authorized procedures. The monitor can also guide the viewer with respect to a script that specifies movement exercises at certain points during the session.
Level 3 (Type 4 data): The monitor's primary role is to suggest movement exercises when the data flow slows or when the viewer no longer seems focused on the target. Using occasional movement exercises only, the monitor should ensure that the viewer achieves the maximum degree of target description possible by the end of the remote-viewing session. The monitor also corrects any deviations from authorized procedures. The monitor can also guide the viewer with respect to a script that specifies movement exercises at certain points during the session.
Level 4 (Type 4 data): The monitor is actively engaged in the data collection process by offering numerous movement exercises that assist the viewer in focusing on the most important target attributes. The data flow does not have to slow for the monitor to suggest a movement exercise. The monitor also corrects any deviations from authorized procedures. The monitor can also guide the viewer with respect to a script that specifies movement exercises at certain points during the session.
Level 5 (Type 4 data): The monitor is actively engaged in all aspects of the data collection process. This includes an evaluation of all or most data entries. This type of monitoring level is appropriate for occasional use only, or in certain instructional situations. The monitor can state the word "check" after each datum that is appropriate for the target, or the monitor can remain silent if it is unclear whether or not a datum is appropriate. The monitor can state the word "reject" if a datum is inappropriate for the target. The viewer records all data, but puts a line through all rejected data entries.

Movement exercise - an SRV procedure that relocates a viewer at a new location relative to the previous target perspective.

Numbered target aspects - (See target aspects)

Outbounder - A person who physically travels to — and witnesses — a target location as a means of guiding the perceptual focus of a remote viewer. The remote viewer is usually tasked with describing the target as seen by the outbounder. (See also "temporal outbounder.")

Phases 1 through 5 - separate phases of Basic and Enhanced Scientific Remote Viewing. The specific phases are structured as follows:

Phase 1: This phase allows the viewer to make initial target contact based on the target coordinates.
Phase 2: This phase increases the contact with the target. Information obtained in this phase includes sounds, textures, temperatures, visuals (such as colors, luminescence, and contrasts), tastes, and smells.
Phase 3: This phase involves an initial sketch of the target.
Phase 4: Target contact in this phase can be profound. Phase 4 involves the use of a matrix within which to enter the data.
Phase 5: In this phase, the remote viewer can engage some limited conscious intellectual activity to do certain specified tasks. This is where time lines and geographical locational diagrams are performed.

Physicals - physical items that are perceived and identified in SRV.

Senses - sounds, textures, temperatures, visuals (such as colors, luminescence, and contrasts), tastes, and smells.

Session time - the date and time that a remote-viewing session takes place.

Signal/signal line - the data stream that is perceived during the SRV session.

SRV - Scientific Remote Viewing.

Structure - the formal procedures of SRV. "Remaining in structure" refers to a viewer closely adhering to these procedures during a remote-viewing session.

Subspace - anything that is on the other side of the physical divide. Such things include subspace beings (for example, spirits), but can also include subspace planets, vehicles, and virtually anything else that may or may not have a parallel in the physical realm.

Target - something that is described by remote viewing. Typical remote-viewing are places, events, or people. Targets normally are specified with respect to time and date.

Target aspects - Often it is useful to place two or more numbered target aspects in a target cue. These are normally locations from which the viewer is to perceive the target. The remote viewer is only told how many target aspects exist for a given target, and the viewer then executes movement exercises at precise moments during a session to place his or her perspective at that location before continuing the session. Target aspects are more effective than target qualifiers (see target qualifiers) in shifting the location of a remote viewer’s perspective.

Target directional - In experimental research, the first page of an SRV session often uses a form called a "target directional." This form contains perspective instructions for perceiving the target. The target directional contains no content information regarding the identity or characteristics of the target. Content information (the identity or description of the target) is restricted to the target specific (see below).

Target qualifiers - This is a list of two or more items that the tasker wants the remote viewer to observe during the remote-viewing session. Qualifiers help define a given target, especially when the target is not accompanied by a picture. Target qualifiers are not as effective as target aspects (see target aspects) in shifting the viewing perspective of the remote viewer.

Target specific - the actual content of the target, such as a place, subject, event, etc. The viewer sees the target specific only after a remote-viewing session is completed.

Target time - the date and time of the target event.

Targeteer - This is HRVG vocabulary, which is synonymous with "tasker" (see "Tasker")

Tasker - This is the person (or even a computer program or randomized dynamic process) who chooses what the focus of perceptions for a remote viewer is to be, which is the "target." Thus, the tasker picks the place, event, person, etc. that the remote viewer should describe. With all remote viewing, the tasker must keep all information related to the target secret from the remote viewer. High quality data can only be reliably obtained if remote viewers work "blind," which means without being told anything about the target in advance of doing the remote viewing. There are many levels of controls which can be used to separate the tasker from the remote viewer during the data collection phase of a remote-viewing project. When computers are used to task a remote-viewing session, computer programs typically pick a target at random from a pool of potential targets. Other randomization processes can be used as well, such a digits in a stock market index, atomic decay processes, etc. (Synonym: Targeteer)

Temporal Outbounder - This is a person not located in the present who has been predesignated to cooperate with a remote-viewing experiment. Typically, this involves a person in the future who is assigned the job of "tasker" (the person who picks the target for an experiment), in an experiment in which the remote-viewing data are collected in the past. For example, if the remote-viewing data are collected in January to describe a future (and unknown as of January) event in February, a tasking temporal outbounder can pick the target in March from the pool of anything that happened in February. This is done in some experimental designs as a means of separating the tasker from the remote viewers in time.

Tasking time - the time and date that a person assigns (i.e., determines) a target for a remote-viewing session.

Viewer feeling - an emotional response by the remote viewer to something that is perceived during the remote-viewing session. SRV requires viewers to declare (and thus to rid the mind of) all VFs to prevent contamination of the data with internalized emotions.

Viewing time - same as session time (see above)
