Revisiting Remote Viewing Stage 5

The IRVA Remote Viewing Conference 2021 wrapped you over this past weekend, 10-12 September 2021. It was a resounding success, great attendance both physically and virtually, excellent presentations and thought provoking discussion. Wait a second though… I think revisiting remote viewing stage 5 may be warranted.

Why would I suggest revisiting remote viewing stage 5? One of the talks I was looking forward to was Thomas (Tom) McNear’s presentation on “Phonetics: Discovering CRV Stage Seven”, specifically to see how this may relate to my own experimentation with phonetics. This presentation was astounding, not to take away from the of that, it was mind blowing. the first portion was a quick run through remote viewing stages 1 through 6 to provide context and build the foundation for the proposals and ideas being brought forth for continued development of stage 7 methods and training. During this primer I was immediately struck by Mr McNear’s remote viewing stage 5 example. What is this format? It’s elegantly efficient, direct and well laid out, a nice mind map sort of branched layout but not as chaotic. I’ve seen these images and notes years ago from Mr. McNear’s notes manual available from the CIA FOIA site, however I think I must have scrolled over it. This format is brilliant. How the F did I miss this years ago digging through archives, largely due to the herculean efforts of Daz Smith’s work making these documents available. Yes, revisiting Remote Viewing Stage 5 merits some potential review on how we format this as civilian viewers.

I can only speak for myself of course, for me remote viewing stage 5 has always been a bit… well, laborious and disorganized. I think many viewers omit and/or skip stage 5 altogether, there’s also a bit of discussion whether or not it should be used and included in training. Interrogating the signal line; looking through AOL, emanations, the stepped list formatting – it has never really “flowed” well for me personally. I’ve tried using some mind mapping types of formats over the years, this does work better in my opinion, but still a bit chaotic. Behold Tom McNear’s example however:

It’s simplistic and efficient, maybe that’s due to the insanely great handwriting. I dunno why, but I find this hierarchical format strikingly perfect – it really makes a lot of sense to me. Admittedly I work in IT too, my brain likely processes and identifies with this sort of direct hierarchical structure more so than others. That’s also the beauty of remote viewing methodologies, there are many, and eventually we all settle of something that works best for each individual.

The way the root ideas to be interrogated further are identified, underlined and session origin referenced is concise. Easily back tracked by an analyst. The way subsequent ideas are further drilled down through and branched out makes it clear to follow through. The continued underlining and categorization as the tree grows allows this format to be followed quite easily. It’s a fantastic format, absolutely stunning. I know I may never have such clean lines and handwriting, but revisiting remote viewing stage 5 is definitely on my agenda this year. Thanks Tom McNear and IRVA.
