Well, Stella... up to a point BUT...
... With RV, you are supposed to "set aside" data that isn't a feeling or a description. That's the term Courtney and Prudence came up with, rather than "Analytic Overlay", AOL, which is how it's described in the CRV manual.
Noun data, you are going to have elements that are similar to the target, but there will be bits of your own bias mixed in there.
This is why you declare it, as a "Set Aside", or as "AOL". You can come back and try to unpick the data later, by doing another ideogram and trying to focus on where the truth ends and fantasy begins.
David Morehouse has an interesting term for personal experience, used to match RV data sensations with what the viewers own experiences and data are. He calls it "Personal Rolodesk", IIRC.
This is where Farsight wants to go away from the military programme and SRI research, by renaming the conventions,. For instance, most people had never heard of the internet company "America OnLine" in the 1980s. They were around, but the interweb hadn't been invented. HTML web language still being put together.
When Courtney and Prudence started working together in the mid 90s, they both wanted to have something that was unmilitaristic. And not ambiguous like "AOL". They went different ways after the Heavens Gate fiasco, with Courtney working on SRV way of looking at RV, and Prudence doing Trans Dimensional Systems.
They both very much wanted to avoid ambiguity. And I'm pretty sure they were both set up over the HG mass suicide which was partly triggered by Hale Bopp fiasco, with the RV feedback being doctored before it was posted to Courtney and accepted "in good faith".
I never worked with Prudence, but I have worked with Jon Knowles who did do things with TDS. So I'm not really antagonistic towards any of the schools involved with RV.
And her 7 part training video from the days when TDS was really in operation are still on YT. Some people found her laugh too much to take, but she did like her humour.
HG were always going to mass suicide. It was their plan. It's just they found the Hale Bopp RV project an excuse to carry it out.
