(S) This report provides documentation of a remote viewing session conducted for the purpose of orienting a remote viewer to the protocol which will be used in the remote viewing training program at Stanford Research Institute (SRI), Menlo Park, California. 2. (S) This remote viewing session contained very little target correlation from an objective point of view. Ambient room noise disturbed the remote viewer. The remote viewer was very depressed prior to the session. He has been having family problems which have had an emotional impact on him and has been unable to set aside thoughts of these family problems for several days. The remote viewer understood the possible impact of his emotional/mental state on the remote viewing process. He wanted to attempt a session even though conditions were not ideal. The "outbounder" or "beacon" behavior was not ideal. The "beacon" arrived at what he believed to be the right target moments before the "on target" time. He then realized he was at the wrong target and sped to the correct target just seconds prior to "on target" time. This state of confusion, "wrong placeness", and "I'm not supposed to be hereness", is predominant throughout the verbage of the session. 3. (S) The protocol used for this session and which will be used in later training is detailed in the document, Standard Remote-Viewing Protocol (Local Targets) by Harold E. Puthoff and Russell Targ, November 1978. 4. (S) Following is a transcript of the viewer's impres- sions during the remote viewing session. At TAB'A are drawings made by the viewer reference his impressions of the target site. At TAB B are photographs of the target site. At TAB C is a post-session interview.

(S) Post-session interviews are conducted after the completion of a session to provide the selected Remote Viewer with the opportunity to express himself concerning his viewing experience. 2. (S) Several of the subjective comments made by #28.5 during the session were relevant to the behavior of the "beacon" during the session. One comment which was made by #28.5, "I felt as though you (the "beacon") were close by", was particularly relevant in that the designated target was across the street from the remote viewing room. #28.5 agreed that his emotional mental state had an impact on his ability to physically relax and concentrate on remote viewing. 3. (S) #28.5 and #28 worked very well together during this session. #28 was noticeably reserved prior to the session and was unable to motivate #28.5 prior to the session. Once into the session, however, the situation improved and both #28.5 and #28 were enthusiastically involved in the exercise. orrinr'T Approved For Release 200 A-RDP96-00788R000900510001-7
