The International Remote
Viewing Association (IRVA) has as its
objective to be:
an organization which would provide a mechanism for evaluating the discipline called "remote viewing", encourage scientifically sound research, propose ethical standards and provide overview educational information to the public.
As part of this objective, IRVA has sponsored Remote Viewing conferences since the year 2000. This year's 2002 conference was held in Austin Texas and focused on "Celebrating Thirty Years of Remote Viewing". Many of the key players who participated in the early years of the government sponsored RV work were present and gave papers. These included Ingo Swann (keynote speaker), Mel Riley, Lyn Buchanan, Paul Smith, Skip Atwater, Hal Puthoff, Russ Targ, Dale Graff and Stephan Schwartz.
Our ARV (Associative Remote Viewing) presentation charts are here.
More background information on ARV, and how to apply it, is here. In the presentation, the 5 protocols that we completed were summarized and results were presented. Our most significant findings concern the reality of beginner's luck.
