(S) This report provides documentation of a remote viewing session conducted for the purpose of orienting a remote ivewer to the protocol which will be used in the remote viewing training program at Stanford Research Institute (SRI), Menlo Park, California. 2. (S) The remote viewer's impressions in this session showed no target correlation. Of unique importance to this session is the fact that the preselected, randomly generated designated target ( a retail store) had gone out of business and did not exist at the time of the session. When the "outbounder" or "beacon" discovered that the target no longer existed he stayed in the immediate area hoping that the remote viewer would "find" him in spite of the obvious problem at hand. The remote viewer was unaffected by ambient room noise and appeared to be physically relaxed during the session. He seemed to have trouble focusing on his images and his images did not fit together or appear to be located together. 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 the drawings made by the viewer reference his impressions of the target site. At TAB B is a post-session interview. No target photographs are enclosed as the target did not exist at the time of the session.

Just great sweeping curves in the pipes, like half moons. #7.5: Okay. You're much too close to be able to understand what it is. You're looking at it too close, from the perspective that you don't normally look at it. You have to step back from it. Step back from it a few feet and look at it from the normal perspective.

You've given a very good description of them. Now, you have told me that you saw him walking across the board and that's very good. We've got a great deal of information about the area. Let's work on putting that area in relation to other items. Now the way we're going to do that is you're going to go to the center of the area.

I don't envision a whole building of it. Going south down the road there is some concrete structures across the road from the target . . . I sense the whole area is very, very dry.

Its very. . . It appears to be a very simple target, I don't. . . Outside of the pipes, I don't see anything significant about it. The fence feels significant. The platform feels significant.

But there didn't appear to be a center support. It all appeared to be on a wooden type platform. But then when I looked at the edge of the wooden platform from the side it was low, like. . . this design. With a piece that came off, like this and this is thepiece that I sensed that he walked on. . . I saw big fences. And those little fences. Okay, and this was definitely chain like type. And, a . . the sheet metal appeared to be in this shape and it was blue. Like a rolled edge to it here. And I guess it kind of went back like this. Almost like the promitory of something or at the point of something coming out. And there was a . . . like an aura around this tip. It was a . . was a. . was a very brilliant. . I guess it was reflecting sunlight. Looking down, I sensed that the road went this way. North and south. And that the edge of the road was all gravel and dirt and that this was a large grassy area. And that the pipes were over in this area. . . Great deal of sand in here. This was very green grass and trees. Trees all back in here. Buildings are down here somewhere. Ididn't get any form at all.

But then looking from one side you could see through them like they were all inter- connected, like this. And then there was some form of angle irons or something. Other pipes that were connected like this. Just a. . I don't even know what the function that could have. Just a hodge-podge of pipes. #7.5: Okay. #19.5: I just couldn't get my mind off of these pipes. And there appeared to be some form of . . . a . . well, let's say, some form of wood platform that went underneath it. I did sense one other unique feature there that I couldn't get back to. I couldn't. . I had trouble with. I sensed a rounded corner. That had dirt, like this with grass all going around it and the dirt was all in here. Almost as if it was prepared for or already had some form of plant life planted in it. You know, but I don't sense it as being a formal planter, but it was more like just a raised area of ground if you will. And that this was like of a clay material. I kept wanting to say concrete. But its not concrete. I kept wanting to say brick, but its not brick. #7.5: Okay, fine. #19.5: This, I sensed was over here somewhere near the sand. #7.5: Okay, now you said one of your very first images, you were looking down a tube or something and then there was something very clear.

(S) #19.5 felt forlorn after the session. He appeared confused during the session and when he was told that there was no target he became depressed and frustrated. #19.5 remains eager to do remote viewing but wishes desparately that things go better the next time around. 3.
