So What is Remote Viewing
With remove viewing, someone in onme location ‘sees’ what is going on, at any distance, given only a map reference. (See here for previous post)
Russell Targ and Harold Puthoff, working at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) cooperated with psychics, using various protocols. A target (usually a place) would be chosen randomly and someone would go to the place assigned (usually through a map reference). The subject, in a Faraday Cage, in other words without any access to electromagnetic information, would ‘tune in’ and then would draw what they saw.
As is evident in the examples shown in the old Horizon programme, the ‘hits’ were simply extraordinary. It is hard to see what they achieved and to still maintain that it was all by ‘chance’ or by picking up on cues or fraud or any of the other ways the phenomenon was explained away.
One of the most successful subjects was Pat Price. See below for the accuracy of the target he was able to envisage using only remote viewing.
So, it’s rubbish, right?
Actually, not! Now, under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), it is clear that the official denials were simply convenient lies. Those scientists most vociferous about the ‘impossibility’ look a little bit like shills now, seeking to prevent serious consideration of the implications of the mind being quite distinct from the body.
That is in many ways still the case. The only difference now is that we have abundant evidence that Remote Viewing was being successfully employed by the American military (and we must assume the Chinese and Russian military too), and the denials were a distraction.
Here is a screen shot of the CIA page presenting a link to some of the Targ Puthoff research.
“Kept top secret for “national security” reasons, hundreds of thousands of pages of remote viewing documents were carefully stored away as the nation’s remote viewers gradually refined their ability to produce drawings of what they saw at a distant location. The existence of the program was flatly denied. Finally in 1995, a small percentage of these documents were released to the public through the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act), proving the existence of the program. Even this small percentage released amounts to nearly 100,000 pages of official remote viewing documents.”

At the time, anyone suggesting that was so would be labelled a conspiracy theorist. In fact if you suggest to the average person in the street nowadays that these powers exist and are used by the military and intelligence services you will still be considered a ‘conspiracy theorist’ even though the evidence is now available for all to see.
But two things have now become clear. The military and intelligence services in the USA were doing ‘psychic’ research and were using sensitive and unusual individuals to ‘mind travel’. They were also quite happy to deny they were doing this and label those who asked awkward questions as nuts, conspiracy nerds or worse.
One of the best or most successful of the psychics employed was Ingo Swann. His story is given below, and involved ‘viewing’ parts of the solar system in his mind. In an autobiography that he wrote, he claims to have viewed parts of the moon in great details. His extraordinary story can be found in various of his many books, including this one, here.

Short example, with Russell Targ – 5 minutes
The most famous of all remote viewers was a flamboyant civilian by the name of Ingo Swann. This remarkable man was noted for predicting in 1973 what NASA’s pioneer probes to Jupiter would find once they reached the gaseous planet for the first close-up view ever. Swann sealed copies of his predictions in envelopes and gave them to many noted scientists who were later astounded at his near 100% accuracy. He also scared military security by being able to literally read files locked in a thick safe on a secure base.Fred `Burks Wanttoknow.info

And today … ?
We now can be reasonably certain the US military and intelligence agencies were using psychics to do remote viewing. Evidence of this is now in the public domain because of the FOIA. In the 1980’s and 1990’s those suggesting this was the case were considered credulous fools with no scientific acumen.
Why would we assume that the intelligence and military would have simply stopped what is – on the face of the evidence – a very effective means of espionage? Would anyone ‘whistleblowing’ today be believed? Or would they be dropped in the dustbin marked ‘conspiracy’.
Given the documentation of this piece of recent history is now available, and given also that the implications for science are so huge, is this another case of the dog that did not bark?
The very fact that this has not been the subject of in depth journalistic exploration is itself intriguing, is it not?
