Personnel for the Mysteries Project
Experimental Design Architect and Analyst: Courtney Brown
Target Design: All targets are written by Courtney Brown and then approved by Lyn Buchanan and Glenn Wheaton. This process assures that all targets are written appropriately given the training background for the HRVG and CRV viewers.
CRV Personnel Assignments
- Daz Smith
- Pat Sage
- Rising Sun Touch
Group Manager: Teresa Frisch
HRVG Personnel Assignments
- Viewer 212
- Allergic Kid
Group Managers: Lyn Buchanan and Glenn Wheaton
SRV Personnel Assignments
Experimental Design Architect: This person designs the experiment, including its organization, data-collection procedures, etc.
Analyst: The analyst writes the summaries and analyses for each monthly experiment.
Project Manager: This person oversees the overall project from start to finish.
Remote Viewer: The remote viewer collects perceptual data using a structured method of data collection. The data are normally collected using paper and pen, although some remote viewers use other recording methods.
Group Manager: This person coordinates the activities for a particular remote-viewing group within the context of a multi-group project. This involves communicating with remote viewers, making sure remote-viewing sessions are submitted on time, and following through on various tasks associated with coordinating group activities related to the project.
Session Assembler: In some situations, a viewer is not technically capable of transmitting a remote-viewing session to the session collector (see below). In such situations, a session assembler serves an intermediary role by receiving the remote-viewing session from the remote viewer, and then scanning the session into a computer as a pdf document. The session assembler then sends the session to the session collector as an email attachment. The session assembler can also transmit a session to the session collector as a fax. The session assembler is normally someone who has regular contact with a given group of remote viewers and who has a computer, a scanner, and a fax.
Session Collector: The person who collects all remote-viewing sessions, normally as pdf or faxed documents. The session collector is responsible for encrypting the sessions using 256 bit encryption. The session collector can also work as the web controller for the project.
Web Controller: The web controller takes all of the encrypted remote-viewing sessions from the Session Collector and uploads them to a publicly accessible web site for distribution.
Target Writer: A person who completes the structural design of the targets chosen for a remote-viewing experiment. This person does not necessarily need to be the tasker. If a tasker is used in a public remote-viewing experiment to choose a target for the experiment, the tasker may then give the target to a target writer to rephrase the target such that is has an acceptable grammatical and structural form suitable for the experiment. The target writer may also obtain graphical imagery to supplement the target definition. The Google Earth software is often useful for obtaining royalty-free target imagery. The primary task of the target writer is to polish the target chosen by the tasker such that the target has all necessary components and is written in an acceptable format.
