Note: This class was conducted in the Order of the Golden Pyramid community’s chatroom. (Wayfarer had another commitment.)
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.
Welcome to another installment of our Remote Viewing class.
Tonight, we’ll be talking about AOL breaks, and possible some more history, depending on how the time goes.
Do you (or does anyone else here) have any questions arising from previous classes, before we get started on tonight’s bits?
*looks around and doesn’t see anyone typing*
I’ll take that as a “no.”
Unfortunately, Wayfarer had another commitment tonight. While it’s possible he might pop in and comment at some point, he won’t be taking part much or at all.
I will be reading back over this lecture tonight when I get home
Sorry I could not take part
hmm… nothing that I can think of. I wasn’t here for the last one
I’ve been a little out of practice too tbh
Marcus: No problem. With folks around the world in this community, there isn’t a time that works for everyone. Text is convenient that way, though, in that it can be read asynchronously.
Red: No worries there, either. Last Friday’s class was a history lesson. When exactly you review that one doesn’t make much difference to understanding/following tonight’s.
Will be looking into the lecture later, have had all my Fridays full
Fair enough. No worries.
We’ll be starting with AOL breaks.
As you know, “AOL” stands for “Analytical Overlay.”
This is the interference from the so-called “conscious” mind’s guesses and attempts to take control of the project at hand.
The human mind just works that way: bits of data are picked up, and the mind wants to make a pattern with it…
Well, actually, it wants to find a pattern in it, but if it can’t find a pattern it will create one.
The concepts that show up in AOL are not always wrong. If you get a sharp mental image of a stone cathedral in Stage 2, and you (correctly) list it as an AOL, that doesn’t mean that the target can’t actually be a stone cathedral.
It’s just that the target could as easily be an inukshuk, from the same fragments of data the mental image of the cathedral was built from.
But you know all that already.
(… except maybe what an “inukshuk” is. It’s a construction of stones, often in the approximate shape of a human form, traditional in Canada’s far north.)
What you might have overlooked – because a surprising number of people overlook it – is that you’re supposed to declare the AOL aloud as you jot it down.
And you ought to declare it as an “AOL break” to remind your own mind that you’re not following that “lead.”
Jot a quick description of the AOL.
Our example above, the description could be “stone cathedral.”
Then put your pen down.
Don’t go into lots of details in describing the image or impression.
The idea in recording it is to get it out of the way.
Any questions or comments at this point?
Without the “break” part of the AOL break, there’s a tendency for more bits of the same AOL to keep showing up.
It’s a detail I hadn’t really given much thought to, in previous AOL discussions, but I was reminded of the importance of it by a recent blog post by Dr. Paul Smith.
Yea, *that* Paul Smith.
The guy who compiled the CRV manual.
Here’s the post in question: http://rviewer.com/Remote_Viewing_Blog/uncategorized/how-not-to-take-a-break/
How do you determine it’s an AOL?
Hi, Mr. Funkles and GM
Whats the lecture on?
GM: Generally speaking, if you’re getting a coherent image or commentary, instead of snippets of data at stage 2 or 3, assume it’s AOL.
Mr. Funkles: It’s on Remote Viewing.
GM: For example, for Stage 2, if the data you’re getting is along the lines of “rough, grey, flat, rocky” and so on, those look like legit data for that stage. A mental image of a cathedral or a mental image of a scene from a Batman movie would be AOL.
Even if the target is a cathedral in a scene from a Batman movie!
Figuring out whether the data did in fact come from the target is the analyst’s problem. Not the viewer’s.
Or, put another way, if the data you’re getting is not an adjective, list it as AOL.
It is not remote viewing proper, but I did mistake my brother for a police officer earlier
Black and blue. dressed neater than casual. metal. very shiny. proably an officer
My brother was wearing black pants and blue shirt with shiny silver pin stripes.
Raos: That’s the same idea, yes.
So, regardless of accuracy and precision, a logical image from snippets of data is AOL, yes?
A common misconception is that AOL is always wrong. It may or may not turn out to be accurate.
It will mess up everything after it, though, if it isn’t handled correctly.
Also, as we’ve mentioned before, any session that lacks AOL listing is almost certainly garbage.
Yea, yea, I know: we keep harping on this.
That’s because it’s important.
And also, it’s because somehow people had the idea that AOL was to be avoided or suppressed.
Or – just as bad – that “only beginners had AOL, and you grow out of it.”
“Only beginners need leg day”
Any other questions or commentary?
Alrighty, then. I think we’ll call it a night.
Thank you for participating.
Have a lovely evening.
Thank you, Rainsong
