Stage IV

Excerpt from the original CRV manual by Paul H. Smith:

With the successful accomplishment of Stage I-II, the viewer has become subject to an enormous flood of information available from the site. Previously, such a flow of data would have been overwhelming, and those circumstances in Stages I through III in which the viewer found himself so inundated would have required the taking of a “Too Much Break.” At this point, however, it becomes both possible and necessary to (1) establish a systematic structure to provide for the orderly, consistent management of the volumes of information that may be obtained, and (2) facilitate and guide the viewer’s focusing of perceptions on ever finer and finer detail of the site. This is accomplished through the use of an information matrix which is illustrated below. Stage IV is a refinement and expansion of the previous structure to facilitate more complete and detailed decoding of the signal line.
