Leonard (Lyn) Buchanan is one of the “remote viewers of the first hour” and has been integrated into the projects of the military unit in Fort Meade since 1984. His abilities were very complex, which must certainly have been a reason for his recruitment. On the one hand, Lyn was very linguistically gifted, mastered Japanese, Mongolian (at that time the only Mongolian linguist in the US military), German, Spanish and Russian. He combined his talent for languages with a degree in psychology in the field of linguistic psychology. He used the same skill to deal with computer languages and was already an expert in the field of computer programming and system design. On the other hand, he had had “psychokinetic” events all his life, which is why he was also classified as a PSI talent.
Lyn was transferred to the remote viewing unit in 1984 and remained there on a special duty for the remainder of his military career. He worked there as a database manager, as a non-fiction bookkeeper and as a trainer of the unit.
After retiring from the US Army in 1992, he founded the company Problem> Solutions> Innovations (P> S.> I) . P> S.> I was originally a pure data analytics company, but the ambiguity in the company name later found its way, and remote viewing later became the company’s main line of business.
From 1992 until the authorities officially distanced themselves from remote viewing in 1995, Lyn continued to train viewers for the military unit. Then the training business switched to the civilian sector. Lyn Buchanan’s aim has always been to get CRV out of the realm of the “spooky” and to de-establish and further develop it as a method for civil research. He views CRV from a technological point of view and, in constant research and development, created computer-aided analysis techniques that are intended to support the work with remote viewing.
Lyn also provides a free public service to the police and other publicly funded investigative organizations and agencies.
This work was originally carried out under the name “The Assigned Witness Program”. The name for the program came about by coincidence one day when Lyn was working with an investigator. He asked the investigator what information was most needed. The investigator replied, “Well, what we really need is a witness.” “No problem,” Lyn replied, “we can assign one. (English assign = German assign, instruct) “For the first time, the investigator saw the scope of this new tool and asked,” Do you think you can assign someone who actually witnesses something that has already happened? ” Lyn replied: “That’s exactly what we’re doing.”
Like so many other remote viewers, Lyn also deals with art . In fact, it turned out that the proportion of artists in the RV area is significantly high, a fact that has to be acknowledged separately again elsewhere.
