Stage Six Notes

If Ed did not mention "orrery" after being asked at least twice about bracketing an event using planet positions, etc. with whom do we contact in PsiTech?



The orrery (there are several applications) is a TRV Stage 6 tool, (in this case, a diagram) used to assist in establishing (rough cut!) time fixes that are WITHIN A SINGLE PLANETARY REVOLUTION of the Sun -- past or future -- from the viewer's present time. Use it sparingly and properly.

Employ an orrery the following manner:

1. After completion of your idea template (never before!), and prior to execution of your summary, place "S6," at the top of a new sheet of paper.

2. At the center of the page, draw a 1-inch diameter circle, and label it with the word "Sun" (our star).

3. Draw a concentric circle around the 'Sun' at a distance of about 3 inches. This is the orbital path of a selected planet (it is best not to use Earth) -- let's say the planet Mercury.

4. In a fashion similar to a spontaneous Stage 3, within about 6 seconds, allow you body to locate the position of Mercury AT THE TRV TARGET TIME. Draw a small circle representing Mercury at that point on the orbit.

5. Draw an arrow indicating the direction of Mercury's motion, along the orbit. Set this page aside.

6. Label a new page with "S6" at the top. Repeat steps 2 & 3 (above).

7. Now, quickly and carefully allow your body to locate Mercury along its orbit, PRESENT TIME. Draw a circle at that point.

8. End the session, and write your summary.

Overlay the two sheets of paper (Stage 6 worksheets). Is your target in the present (i.e., same position for Mercury on both diagrams)? Past or future? How far? Look at the length of the arc -- the distance between Mercury at the present time and at target time. What fraction of the orbit does this represent? In this example, since Mercury has an synodic ("orbital") period of about 116 Earth days, this will be a fractional amount of 116, the number of days (very roughly) from the present. For best results, a group of trained TRVers WORKING THE SAME CUE should collate and average their results.


(Dr_Doom) So, that means follow-on sessions, using only specific features, taken from your earlier I.T.

(Dr_Doom) Number the most interesting features in the I.T. [1], [2], etc.

(Dr_Doom) Then, place the I.T. in front of you, and begin a new session with a movement: "From the top of [1] SSBP

(Dr_Doom) do this for each feature, OR

(Dr_Doom) stick with a single feature (e.g., the man-made object in your posted Venus session) and turn the session into a target geometry

(Dr_Doom) There are no Stage 4 pages in a TG session

first, we want detailed drawings and clay model
