Binary Remote Viewing

I'm curious if the concept of "binary remote viewing" (or anything comparable to this term) is to be found in 
the discussions to which you refer, or the circles in which you're active.

"Binary remote viewing" as I'd use the term would refer to RV experiments in which exactly two  locations or 
"environments" would be set up located as close as possible to one another for convenience, but made as different as possible in character to make potential remote viewing as effective as possible.

[Example, just off the cuff: two adjacent rooms:

* a "cold room," held at a chilly temperature; decorated entirely in "cold" colors and icy themes; pictures of snow, ice, eskimoes, polar bears on the walls; cold tub of water with chunks of ice in the middle of the room; etc

* a "warm room", held at a warm temperature; decorated entirely in "warm" colors and warm or tropical themes; pictures of warm sunshiny themes; maybe a blazing fireplace.

One can obviously think of other examples, but the basic objective is just two different environments, designed to be fully acceptable to participating subjects as being clearly as different and distinguishable from each other as possible.]

You can see what's coming: experiment involves starting with a long string of binary digits; in each successive 
trial in a long string of repeated experiments, the "transmitting" subject goes into either the cold or the warm room depending on the next digit, 1 or 0, in the binary string (which is of course random and only revealed to anyone at the last instant before each trial); and transmitter attempts to transmit to the remote viewer, or remote viewer attempts to sense, which room, i.e., which binary digit is being sent.

Bottom-line measure of remote viewing success is then, what is the "channel capacity" of remote viewing? 
Specifically, how many bits per second can be transmitted from "transmitter" to "receiver", over a long series of many trials?

A Google search on "binary remote viewing" brought up nothing. Does this concept, or something like it, find any resonance in the remote viewing community?


Yours truly, AES
