Introduction by Dan Eden

A few months ago, ViewZone Magazine received requests for information on a phenomenon called "remote viewing" which has been, and likely still is, an area of great interest to the military and other covert intelligence gathering organizations. We interviewed and received letters from a number of people who were involved in this research. As a result of the information we gathered, it was clear that there was some validity to this ability to "see" things that were hundreds or, sometimes, thousands of miles away from the viewer.

 While the military preferred to use words like "protocols," we were told that anyone could develop this ability with some instruction, and that this skill represented just one of many dormant abilities that reside in our brain and psyche.

 The intelligence community has kept many of these "protocols" classified and unavailable to all but a handful of people. But these abilities are the birthright of every human and, thus, their teaching and development can never be kept secret. 

The compiler of this series of lessons, Dr. Max Sandor, wishes to make it clear that he is not describing any classified protocols in these exclusive reports. In fact, he does not wish to use the term "protocol" and prefers to avoid the term "remote viewing," rather providing instructions on the development of "Straightline Remote Sensing."

 Dr. Sandor is about to release an important guide that details these abilities— something he calls his "Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape This Universe," or "PNOHTETU." This whimsical title conceals some of the most prolific writing on a topic that will ultimately change our destiny.

For many years, only two photos existed showing this shy and modest man whom many call "Humble Max": A secret service photo made in Cambodia, and Gunter Zielke's historic "El Monte portrait." (Of course, there is also Diane Dornbusch's famous oil painting.) Now, with sheer luck, an off-duty paparazzi saw him riding into the mysterious Haines Canyon, known as the home of many strange creatures. Thus, this picture was taken on March 28th, in the Year of the Lord 1998, right after the revelation of Prep Trap Example 2. 

Maximilian Joachim Sandor incarnated as a male bipedal mammal in Berlin, Germany, and was called Joachim Herbert Steingrubner until he, for some obscure reasons, decided to change his name. He holds an Engineers Diploma (E.E.) and a Ph.D. in Computer Science, and has studied such diverse topics as Mathematics, Indo-European Languages, Electrical Engineering, Life, Universe, and Everything. After roaming Europe for many years, he moved to California (in the fall of 1984) and worked there as a Computer Engineer and as a Consultant. He has worked exclusively for the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) since 1996. 

Having had interested in the questions of life and death since early childhood, he came in contact with books of George Grimm in early 1977. Grimm's clear and concise presentation convinced him in a very short time that Gotamo Siddharto's teachings had a solid basis in reality, far from the many cultural distortions that make up the picture of today's prevailing "Buddhist" circles. 

As early as Spring 1978, Max was thinking of writing a contemporary summary of Gotamo's ideas, still seen predominantly through the filter of Grimm's perception. It has taken twenty years— until the time seemed right— to finally start this project. 

In the meantime, he has studied a variety of modern technologies of the mind, many of which are better not disclosed. Tired of pseudo-scientific attempts to forcefully bend Gotamo's teachings into the framework of contemporary "Science," as well as the romantic glorification and illogical myths around the "Buddha," he rarely engages in private or public conversations about the aspects of Gotamo's teachings. 

It comes, therefore, as quite a surprise that he is now indeed compiling the "Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape From this Universe."
