ASSOCIATIVE REMOTE VIEWING by Jack Houck
Published August 1986 Revised 2‑8‑89
REMOTE VIEWING is a term coined by Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ to describe a form of psychic functioning historically known as clairvoyance.1 Dr. Puthoff and Mr. Targ, both formerly with Stanford Research Institute (SRI) International, have researched this phenomenon since the early 1970s, and their results are published in several books.2 Their research was concentrated on training selected individuals to "see" or "view" a scene or event that was occurring at a distant location. In addition, the ability to "view" the scene at different times -- past, present and future -- was established. One particularly significant outcome of this research was the discovery that viewers could reliably access remote information when they were asked to describe a scene, but that they were not as reliable when the target was a number or a letter. This discovery led to the development of associative remote viewing (ARV) in which a scene is associated with a particular message. A group of scenes is chosen, each scene having a different message associated with it. When the viewer's perception corresponds to one of the scenes, the message corresponding to that scene is accepted.
