Lory and David Golden — (I’ve dubbed them “Team Golden”) — used ARV to correctly predict the 2018 Triple Crown winners. The three “jewels” of the Triple Crown in American thoroughbred racing are the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. As part of the Applied Precognition Project’s FirstGroove horseracing group, Lory viewed for each race and David, her husband, judged Lory’s transcripts. The FirstGroove group’s predictions were posted to the APP prediction list prior to the races.
On June 8, the APP FirstGroove group used ARV to predict that Justify would win the 2018 Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9. Five gave confidence rankings ranging from 3.5 to 5 for Side 1 (yes) when tasked with (yes or no): Will the odds-favorite horse JUSTIFY win the 2018 Belmont Stakes? A sixth prediction was a Pass.
The group also made a prediction June 8 based on the color of the horses’ saddle blankets, which are linked to their post positions at the starting gate. Lillian chose BLACK (#6 Gronkowski), the Place horse (second), and Patsy chose YELLOW (#4 Hofburg), the Show horse (third).
Congrats to all!
An Ethnographical Assessment of Project Firefly:
A Yearlong Endeavor to Create Wealth by Predicting FOREX Currency Moves with Associative Remote Viewing
By Debra Katz, Igor Grgić, and T. W. Fendley
Abstract—More than 60 remote viewers contributed 177 intuitive-based associative remote viewing (ARV) predictions over a 14-month period. These viewers comprised pre-established, self-organized groups cooperating under the rubric of “Project Firefly” (PFF), and were supervised by experienced ARV group managers operating under the umbrella of the Applied Precognition Project (APP), a for-profit organization exploring precognition and leveraging ARV methodology as an investment enhancement tool.
Based on predictions from the ARV sessions, PFF used the Kelly wagering strategy to guide trading on the Foreign Exchange (FOREX) currency market. Viewers performed under typical scientific protocols, including double-blind conditions, appropriate randomization, etc., using a variety of ARV application methodologies. Investors, many of whom were also participants (viewers and judges), pooled investment funds totaling $56,300 with the stated goal of “creating wealth aggressively.”
Rather than meeting that goal, however, most of the funds were lost over the course of the project. Beyond merely reporting on an extensive remote viewing experiment, the present study is an examination of what went wrong, providing lessons learned for further ARV research whether involving for-profit activities or basic research, as the principles are relevant to both. Associative remote viewing is a research paradigm that harkens back to early days in science where competent non-academic researchers can provide datapoints and breakthroughs in a field typically peopled solely by professional researchers.
Adapting a form of ethnographic study, we refer not only to the statistical results produced by the PFF effort, but also employ a mixed-methods qualitative approach to exploit the information and insights contributed by numerous participants about what happened, what worked, and what didn’t. This creates a reference we believe will be useful for those conducting future applied precognition projects involving multiple participants or groups. We feel that the insights gleaned from this study will improve both ARV experimental design and execution of research protocol, benefitting professional and amateur researchers alike in their future ARV experimen- tation.
Our thanks to the Journal of Scientific Exploration for publishing the paper and to our fellow participants from the Applied Precognition Project for their efforts.

In January, Laila S. shared these two hits on the APP Discussion list:
TARGET 145523: “I scored it a 5 and the other photo site was a 3 because of the great precepts I received for it. Because I am in three different groups, this hit makes 5 in a row, the second time I’ve had such a run. Although I’m crafty and talented with my hands in so many other ways, I don’t enjoy drawing and never have. Hence, I force my Self to draw ideograms, so they may appear to be rather rudimentary. It’s a little frustration of mine that I just work through because I otherwise love doing ARV.”
TARGET 445968: “I still consider myself a newbie, having started ARVing last May. I’m sharing this because I received more written precepts for the photo site I didn’t choose and went with my gut feeling on this session. My ideograms show the shape of the racket handle, her hair pulled back (fish shape), the ball and her wisps of hair sticking up on her forehead. Although the background in photo site A was magenta colored, I received the precepts of blue and baby blue, both of which showed up in my target photo site B and that weighted heavily for me.
TARGET 646875: Posted to the APP Discussion list by Mou M.
Two members of APP’s FirstGroove group scored hits Monday by correctly predicting that Mystical, the odds-favorite horse at the time of the prediction, would not win Race 8 on Nov. 13 at Turf Paradise racetrack. Both self-judged their sessions, Rich giving his transcript a confidence ranking of CR 6.5 on the Targ scale, and Donna scoring hers a CR4.
Lory G. with the FirstGroove Group correctly predicted that the odds-favorite horse would not win Race 8 on Monday, Sept. 18, at Louisiana Downs racetrack. Lory’s husband judged her transcript and gave it a confidence ranking of CR6. Congrats also to FirstGroove member Donna for her correct prediction (she rated her transcript a CR4) .
