What are we talking about?

“Spontaneous Remote Viewing (SRV) is a random format of wiring between virtual reality and levels of consciousness;
Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV) is composed of discovering the correct wiring and bringing the random format under conscious control.”

[Source: Ingo Swann, Remote Viewing? Hey, Guys! What Are We Talking About? (Part 1), 8 Dec 1995]

CENTER LANE was one of the code names of the Military Remote Viewing programme, covering the 1983–1984 period, the time when Ingo Swann trained 5 Military remote viewers — Tom McNear, Bill Ray, Paul H. Smith, Charlene Cavanaugh (Shufelt) and Ed Dames — in the CRV method that he had developed together with Hal Puthoff.

The purpose of this project is to erect a structure for preservation of core CRV principles and practice. We understand that this body of knowledge is held by a small group of individuals who were directly trained by Ingo Swann, and have decades of invaluable experience. Our goal is to capture the essence of these principles and preserve this body of knowledge, so it can evolve in alignment with the principles and be handed down to future generations.

The Center Lane Project is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to transfer the knowledge and principles about original CRV to the next generation. We offer free information to inform and educate the public about the specifics of Controlled Remote Viewing and additional benefits to our supporting members.

One of the most prominent misunderstandings is that remote viewing refers to the innate ability of psi functioning and remote perception, rather than just a way of using those underlying abilities.
