Farsight's Session Analysis Machine (SAM)

SAM is a computer-based method of objectively analyzing remote-viewing sessions. It works equally well with all types remote viewing methods, not just Scientific Remote Viewing®. To use SAM, a remote viewer conducts a remote-viewing session, and then enters the data into form that distills the essential observed characteristics of the target into a numerical data set. There are nearly 100 potential target attributes that can be selected on the form by a remote viewer to describe the remote viewing perceptions. These attributes range from descriptions of surfaces, structures, subjects, temperatures, noises, plus lots more. (Click here to see a nonexecutable sample of the SAM form used to input remote-viewing data.)

The numerical SAM data are then collected as a data set that describes each remote-viewing session. Similar types of numerical data sets are constructed for all targets that are used for analysis with SAM. The data sets for the remote-viewing sessions as well as the data sets for the targets are then input into a computer program (called the "SAM Program") that is designed specifically to analyze SAM data. This program utilizes a variety of procedures to compare data for remote-viewing sessions with data for actual targets. The SAM Program is used to calculate the statistics published on this web site that analyze remote-viewing data. These statistics are objective measures that can be used to evaluate the ability of a remote viewer to correctly describe a remote-viewing target.
