Associative Remote Viewing (ARV) Explained
ARV Course Description
Associative Remote Viewing, or ARV, is not a method of remote viewing. Instead, it is a way of tasking a remote viewer to obtain a certain kind of information. Any workable method of remote viewing can be used for an ARV project.
You can think of the function of ARV as a way of "sending back" information from the future. The purpose of ARV is to help make decisions in the present about a future outcome or event.
Usually a binary-outcome event is involved. An example of a binary-outcome event would be a football game, where either one team will win, or the other will (in many of these sorts of events, there is a slight chance that there will be a tie, but we'll ignore that for now).
Another example is whether a stock will have gone up or down in value by a certain time, such as the closing bell of the stock market.
Associative remote viewing works by associating a concrete or descriptive target with each outcome. The target associated with what will become the correct outcome will be viewed by the viewer before the event takes place. After the event has happened, the viewer is then presented with the correct target as feedback to "close the loop." An example will help you make sense of this:
Let's say there will be a football game between Texas A&M and the University of Texas Longhorns tomorrow. We want to know who will win the game before the game is even played. (Maybe we want to place a winning bet, or be able to show off for the guys!) The problem is, if you frontload a viewer by asking who will win the game, the response will usually be no better than chance - there will only be a 50/50 chance that he or she will be right. In other words, it would essentially be a guess.
On the other hand, if you ran a typical blind or double-blind remote viewing session, there would be major problems trying to structure the tasking and analysis to arrive at a recognizable answer, making such an approach impractical.With ARV, however, you avoid all these problems. Let's continue with our example.
To predict the outcome of the football game, we'll pick an apple to stand for the Longhorns winning, and a pencil to stand for A&M winning (we are thus "associating" the apple with the Longhorns winning and a pencil with A&M winning). The person doing the "tasking"—in other words, the one who first decides what needs to be done, then assigns the "task" or mission, to the viewer—will tell the viewer, "Describe the object I will hand to you the day after the game has been played and the outcome decided."
If during the remote viewing session the viewer describes something round, red, and sweet-smelling, the tasker concludes that the Longhorns will win. We will assume the Longhorns do win. So the tasker will hand the viewer an apple at the agreed upon time after the game has been played so the tasker will know for sure that the apple was the correct response and can have it ready for the viewer.
Objects aren't the only targets that can be used. For RVIS, Inc.'s ARV course we will use photos that are chosen to be as different from each other as possible.
Though ARV is simple in principle, there are numerous complications that must be considered in order to do it successfully. These will be covered in the course curriculum, in addition to the basics of the process.
