Since I'm Silva trained and not a CRV grad there is a bit of a terminology
barrier for me.
Would someone please tell me what AOL stands for? I feel sure somehow that you
guys aren't talking about an ISP. :-)
Moderator's Note: You're right, sorry about that. Here's a few.
AOL = Analytical overlay. When assumptions (of any degree or kind) cause one to
either process/warp data, or filter what is received. (Sometimes the processing
is accurate, so these can be accurate or way out in left field.)
AI = Aesthetic impact. A descriptive that has 'feeling'. Some are obvious
(beautiful, gross), some depend on how you feel when the data comes ('big' can
be a simple descriptive, or an AI). The recent session posted by Jason Shapiro
had an interesting example where he declared "familiar" as an AI.
S1-S6/P1-P6, Stage/Phase. The stages in CRV commonly taught publicly. S1 is
generally 'ideogram' work (ref: Rene Warcollier), S2 'descriptives', S3
beginning sketching, S4 conceptuals, S5 is actually a 'tools' and analytical
level, S6 has a variety of things including modeling and advanced sketching.
(There are other alleged Stages/Phases but they are not usually part of what
most people have learned in CRV/TRV/SRV training.)
