"The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

RE: REPTILIAN PARALLEL WORLDS

 

What can I say...I knew the truth for a long time, but always thought I was alone in knowing it.

 

How was I supposed to know that others knew the samethings...& we all received it from the same source?

 

The history behind how I learned these things, and how others learned them as well, seems almost trivial and too tedious to put to task my writing skills and memory. So just let it be said coincidences are more than just carefully timed 'arrangements'.

 

All the acid trips and meditations, all the mental aerobics of weight lifting, bodybuilding and martial arts, all the Tai Chi and Yoga,,, all of it, worked it's way into my etheric streams... But that last hit of DMT & the final unforgiving Kundalini surge eventually broke through the last defense mechanism of a tired mind.

 

I started putting it together from the phone calls I would receive right after certain rituals. The Enochian rites always brought black helicopters circling over my property. At times, I felt a consuming E.L.F. wave eating at my solar plexus. Certainly, some of the lesser effects were undoubtly from the intensity of my magick, but there were some effects I knew were from external sources.

 

My inner circle of friends consisted of mainly magi and psychics. All of them sensed the white noise that was relentless inside my head. They figured I pushed the proverbial envelope one too many times...but even they weren't ready for what was about to face all of us.

 

The morning edition of the small town newspaper carried a small report on the third page that a multi-colored object, triangular shaped object, buzzed over the mountain range about a block from my home. There was also a small explosion, but there wasn't any evidence of a collison. Coincidentially, a small rock fell from the sky as well, and that was the impact we all heard and felt. Unlikely I thought...

 

Perhaps there wasn't any evidence because the remains were scooped up by all them black helicopters that woke me up that morning.

 

Maybe I should have a better look.

 

I took off to the charred remains of clearing in the woods where the object fell, and true...the site was cleared, no remains, just what looked like a brush fire that got out of hand. Oh well, hell, was just one of them things I suppose.

 

Later on that afternoon, a knock at my door brought me face to face with 3 men all wearing expensive suits. I don't know anybody that wear suits, as I could sense they were some sort of 'official big shots' Heh, I was correct this time. "Could we have a word with you, Mr. __ __"

 

Huh,,,they even knew my name.

 

"Nope I said, I'm busy" as I closed the door. I could of sworn I heard one of them mumble "We'll be seeing ya soon"

 

"Yeah right" I thought...but somewhere in my subconscious, I knew he was right...

 

Well, he was right. Later that night, I heard some raccoons eating through my trash barrel. Going ouside to clean it up, I was in close proximity to those 'officials", though there were only 2 of them now.

 

So, I figured, if I didn't talk to these dudes, they would always be around my property, so what the hell... "what's up?" I casually snickered.

 

I don't remember much after that. I lost track of one of the guys as I was speaking to the other. I woke up by my back porch, smelling ammonia or something similair to that odor.

 

2

 

I had a wicked headache, and later on during that early morning I felt like I had the flu bug.

 

To shorten up this story...two years later, I still get those very same headaches, and can smell in the distance, that very same odor...

 

I and a friend of my choice, went to work for them. 'They' were in a branch of the military, but I never really knew to what extent.

 

It was a substantial pay I received, and did some very interesting things. Mostly remote viewing under psychedelic drugs. Wasn't any drugs I have ever used in my personal studies. This was intravenous, and was VERY strong.

 

Most of it was training on my part, until the final two weeks of this 'black project'. I once called it that, a "Black Project", when I was under trance, but a hand grabbed my arm, and 'reassured' me, it wasn't a black project...just something they wanted to confirm by a neutral team...being me and my friend.

 

Maybe I just wanted to feel important, was the reason I felt this way, was 'their advice'...

 

Those last 2 weeks were very intense.

 

Seemed like a lucid dream, very surreal. I was put in an amber foam, giving intravenous, then went under a blue light.

 

I remember most of it in dreams, though when I get hypnotically regressed, it seems to be locked up...there's a subliminal barrier I just can't quite overcome, even until this very day. But man, do I still try to break through past that threshold.

 

3

 

The pieces I can recall is what follows...

 

When the dinosaurs lived, man did as well. We weren't "man" as in homo sapiens, but we were in some other form. I can not recall this form, because I was like in a third party, viewing it from a distance. There were lights, bright orbs. Somewhere from far away, we became 'created'. Well, this isn't so spectacular, as I believed this anyway. However, what follows is where the curve comes in...

 

There followed afterwards, an ice age. It seemed planned, as man entered a new dimension. It appears as if the ice age was a laboratory setting. I seen huge metallic cylinders, and "they" told me what I saw was overlapping of time-lines from my own perspective...bogus, I thought. This is what I pieced together from the intense experiments...--

 

Man became a cryogenic experiment, and right now, we are all in a dream state. Some are catching glimpses of the former reality, while others are grabbing bits and pieces of the future. There are many of them... Man has lived in this suspended dream time for millions of years, and our handlers are keeping us from never awakening. We are laboratory specimens being maintained somewhere, far from anything we know. We are NOT living on the Earth, we are only experiencing the Earth as a platform setting for our cosmic dream. It is 'fabricated landscape'. NOTHING is how it appears. The stage is fictious, but we have become accustomed to this stage for so long,,,many of us simply will NOT wake up.

 

The most ironic part is this. When one of us do awaken momentarily, we try to stir our slumbering neighbor,,,but they choose not to hear. During the interim, waiting for some type of confirmation, we fall back asleep. This is why when we get close to truth, we enter another alternate reality. Our next 'new' dream just super imposes over the old dream, and the faces and scenery change, but nevertheless, we are still,... just dreaming.

CIA-Initiated Remote Viewing

 

At Stanford Research Institute

 

by H. E. Puthoff, Ph.D.

 

Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin

 

4030 Braker Lane W., #300

 

Austin, Texas 78759-5329

 

Abstract - In July 1995 the CIA declassified, and approved for release,

 

documents revealing its sponsorship in the

 

1970s of a program at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, CA, to

 

determine whether such phenomena as

 

remote viewing "might have any utility for intelligence collection"

 

<1>. Thus began disclosure to the public of a

 

two-decade-plus involvement of the intelligence community in the

 

investigation of so-called parapsychological or psi

 

phenomena. Presented here by the program's Founder and first Director

 

(1972 - 1985) is the early history of the

 

program, including discussion of some of the first, now declassified,

 

results that drove early interest.

 

Introduction

 

On April 17, 1995, President Clinton issued Executive Order Nr. 1995-4-17,

 

entitled Classified National Security

 

Information. Although in one sense the order simply reaffirmed much of what

 

has been long-standing policy, in another sense

 

there was a clear shift toward more openness. In the opening paragraph, for

 

example, we read: "In recent years, however,

 

dramatic changes have altered, although not eliminated, the national

 

security threats that we confront. These changes provide

 

a greater opportunity to emphasize our commitment to open Government." In

 

the Classification Standards section of the

 

Order this commitment is operationalized by phrases such as "If there is

 

significant doubt about the need to classify

 

information, it shall not be classified." Later in the document, in

 

reference to information that requires continued protection,

 

there even appears the remarkable phrase "In some exceptional cases,

 

however, the need to protect such information may be

 

outweighed by the public interest in disclosure of the information, and in

 

these cases the information should be declassified."

 

A major fallout of this reframing of attitude toward classification is that

 

there is enormous pressure on those charged with

 

maintaining security to work hard at being responsive to reasonable requests

 

for disclosure. One of the results is that FOIA

 

(Freedom of Information Act) requests that have languished for months to

 

years are suddenly being acted upon.1

 

One outcome of this change in policy is the government's recent admission of

 

its two-decade-plus involvement in funding

 

highly-classified, special access programs in remote viewing (RV) and

 

related psi phenomena, first at Stanford Research

 

Institute (SRI) and then at Science Applications International Corporation

 

(SAIC), both in Menlo Park, CA, supplemented

 

by various in-house government programs. Although almost all of the

 

documentation remains yet classified, in July 1995 270

 

pages of SRI reports were declassified and released by the CIA, the

 

program's first sponsor <2>. Thus, although through the

 

years columns by Jack Anderson and others had claimed leaks of "psychic spy"

 

programs with such exotic names as Grill

 

Flame, Center Lane, Sunstreak and Star Gate, CIA's release of the SRI

 

reports constitutes the first documented public

 

admission of significant intelligence community involvement in the psi area.

 

As a consequence of the above, although I had founded the program in early

 

1972, and had acted as its Director until I left in

 

1985 to head up the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin (at which point

 

my colleague Ed May assumed responsibility as

 

Director), it was not until 1995 that I found myself for the first time able

 

to utter in a single sentence the connected acronyms

 

CIA/SRI/RV. In this report I discuss the genesis of the program, report on

 

some of the early, now declassified, results that

 

drove early interest, and outline the general direction the program took as

 

it expanded into a multi-year, multi-site,

 

multi-million-dollar effort to determine whether such phenomena as remote

 

viewing "might have any utility for intelligence

 

collection" <1>.

 

Beginnings

 

In early 1972 I was involved in laser research at Stanford Research

 

Institute (now called SRI International) in Menlo Park,

 

CA. At that time I was also circulating a proposal to obtain a small grant

 

for some research in quantum biology. In that

 

proposal I had raised the issue whether physical theory as we knew it was

 

capable of describing life processes, and had

 

suggested some measurements involving plants and lower organisms <3>. This

 

proposal was widely circulated, and a copy

 

was sent to Cleve Backster in New York City who was involved in measuring

 

the electrical activity of plants with standard

 

polygraph equipment. New York artist Ingo Swann chanced to see my proposal

 

during a visit to Backster's lab, and wrote

 

me suggesting that if I were interested in investigating the boundary

 

between the physics of the animate and inanimate, I should

 

consider experiments of the parapsychological type. Swann then went on to

 

describe some apparently successful experiments

 

in psychokinesis in which he had participated at Prof. Gertrude Schmeidler's

 

laboratory at the City College of New York. As

 

a result of this correspondence I invited him to visit SRI for a week in

 

June 1972 to demonstrate such effects, frankly, as

 

much out of personal scientific curiosity as anything else.

 

Prior to Swann's visit I arranged for access to a well-shielded magnetometer

 

used in a quark-detection experiment in the

 

Physics Department at Stanford University. During our visit to this

 

laboratory, sprung as a surprise to Swann, he appeared to

 

perturb the operation of the magnetometer, located in a vault below the

 

floor of the building and shielded by mu-metal

 

shielding, an aluminum container, copper shielding and a superconducting

 

shield. As if to add insult to injury, he then went on

 

to "remote view" the interior of the apparatus, rendering by drawing a

 

reasonable facsimile of its rather complex (and

 

heretofore unpublished) construction. It was this latter feat that impressed

 

me perhaps even more than the former, as it also

 

eventually did representatives of the intelligence community. I wrote up

 

these observations and circulated it among my

 

scientific colleagues in draft form of what was eventually published as part

 

of a conference proceedings <4>.

 

In a few short weeks a pair of visitors showed up at SRI with the above

 

report in hand. Their credentials showed them to be

 

from the CIA. They knew of my previous background as a Naval Intelligence

 

Officer and then civilian employee at the

 

National Security Agency (NSA) several years earlier, and felt they could

 

discuss their concerns with me openly. There was,

 

they told me, increasing concern in the intelligence community about the

 

level of effort in Soviet parapsychology being funded

 

by the Soviet security services <5>; by Western scientific standards the

 

field was considered nonsense by most working

 

scientists. As a result they had been on the lookout for a research

 

laboratory outside of academia that could handle a quiet,

 

low-profile classified investigation, and SRI appeared to fit the bill. They

 

asked if I could arrange an opportunity for them to

 

carry out some simple experiments with Swann, and, if the tests proved

 

satisfactory, would I consider a pilot program along

 

these lines? I agreed to consider this, and arranged for the requested

 

tests.2

 

The tests were simple, the visitors simply hiding objects in a box and

 

asking Swann to attempt to describe the contents. The

 

results generated in these experiments are perhaps captured most eloquently

 

by the following example. In one test Swann said

 

"I see something small, brown and irregular, sort of like a leaf or

 

something that resembles it, except that it seems very much

 

alive, like it's even moving!" The target chosen by one of the visitors

 

turned out to be a small live moth, which indeed did look

 

like a leaf. Although not all responses were quite so precise, nonetheless

 

the integrated results were sufficiently impressive that

 

in short order an eight-month, $49,909 Biofield Measurements Program was

 

negotiated as a pilot study, a laser colleague

 

Russell Targ who had a long-time interest and involvement in parapsychology

 

joined the program, and the experimental

 

effort was begun in earnest.

 

Early Remote Viewing Results

 

During the eight-month pilot study of remote viewing the effort gradually

 

evolved from the remote viewing of symbols and

 

objects in envelopes and boxes, to the remote viewing of local target sites

 

in the San Francisco Bay area, demarked by

 

outbound experimenters sent to the site under strict protocols devised to

 

prevent artifactual results. Later judging of the results

 

were similarly handled by double-blind protocols designed to foil

 

artifactual matching. Since these results have been presented

 

in detail elsewhere, both in the scientific literature <6-8> and in popular

 

book format <9>, I direct the interested reader to these

 

sources. To summarize, over the years the back-and-forth criticism of

 

protocols, refinement of methods, and successful

 

replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories

 

<10-14>, has yielded considerable scientific evidence for

 

the reality of the phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was

 

the discovery that a growing number of individuals

 

could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their

 

own surprise, such as the talented Hella Hammid.

 

As a separate issue, however, most convincing to our early program monitors

 

were the results now to be described,

 

generated under their own control.

 

First, during the collection of data for a formal remote viewing series

 

targeting indoor laboratory apparatus and outdoor

 

locations (a series eventually published in toto in the Proc. IEEE <7>), the

 

CIA contract monitors, ever watchful for possible

 

chicanery, participated as remote viewers themselves in order to critique

 

the protocols. In this role three separate viewers,

 

designated visitors V1 - V3 in the IEEE paper, contributed seven of the 55

 

viewings, several of striking quality. Reference to

 

the IEEE paper for a comparison of descriptions/drawings to pictures of the

 

associated targets, generated by the contract

 

monitors in their own viewings, leaves little doubt as to why the contract

 

monitors came to the conclusion that there was

 

something to remote viewing (see, for example, Figure 1 herein). As

 

summarized in the Executive Summary of the

 

now-released Final Report <2> of the second year of the program, "The

 

development of this capability at SRI has evolved to

 

the point where visiting CIA personnel with no previous exposure to such

 

concepts have performed well under controlled

 

laboratory conditions (that is, generated target descriptions of

 

sufficiently high quality to permit blind matching of descriptions

 

to targets by independent judges)." What happened next, however, made even

 

these results pale in comparison.

Figure 2 - Target

 

(merry-go-round)

 

Coordinate Remote Viewing

 

To determine whether it was necessary to have a "beacon" individual at the

 

target site, Swann suggested carrying out an

 

experiment to remote view the planet Jupiter before the upcoming NASA

 

Pioneer 10 flyby. In that case, much to his chagrin

 

(and ours) he found a ring around Jupiter, and wondered if perhaps he had

 

remote viewed Saturn by mistake. Our colleagues

 

in astronomy were quite unimpressed as well, until the flyby revealed that

 

an unanticipated ring did in fact exist.3

 

Expanding the protocols yet further, Swann proposed a series of experiments

 

in which the target was designated not by

 

sending a "beacon" person to the target site, but rather by the use of

 

geographical coordinates, latitude and longitude in

 

degrees, minutes and seconds. Needless to say, this proposal seemed even

 

more outrageous than "ordinary" remote viewing.

 

The difficulties in taking this proposal seriously, designing protocols to

 

eliminate the possibility of a combination of globe

 

memorization and eidetic or photographic memory, and so forth, are discussed

 

in considerable detail in Reference <9>. Suffice

 

it to say that investigation of this approach, which we designated Scanate

 

(scanning by coordinate), eventually provided us

 

with sufficient evidence to bring it up to the contract monitors and suggest

 

a test under their control. A description of that test

 

and its results, carried out in mid-1973 during the initial pilot study, are

 

best presented by quoting directly from the Executive

 

Summary of the Final Report of the second year's followup program <2>. The

 

remote viewers were Ingo Swann and Pat

 

Price, and the entire transcripts are available in the released documents

 

<2>.

 

"In order to subject the remote viewing phenomena to a rigorous

 

long-distance test under external control, a request for

 

geographical coordinates of a site unknown to subject and experimenters was

 

forwarded to the OSI group responsible for

 

threat analysis in this area. In response, SRI personnel received a set of

 

geographical coordinates (latitude and longitude in

 

degrees, minutes, and seconds) of a facility, hereafter referred to as the

 

West Virginia Site. The experimenters then carried

 

out a remote viewing experiment on a double-blind basis, that is, blind to

 

experimenters as well as subject. The experiment

 

had as its goal the determination of the utility of remote viewing under

 

conditions approximating an operational scenario. Two

 

subjects targeted on the site, a sensitive installation. One subject drew a

 

detailed map of the building and grounds layout, the

 

other provided information about the interior including codewords, data

 

subsequently verified by sponsor sources (report

 

available from COTR)."4

 

Since details concerning the site's mission in general,5 and evaluation of

 

the remote viewing test in particular, remain highly

 

classified to this day, all that can be said is that interest in the client

 

community was heightened considerably following this

 

exercise.

 

Because Price found the above exercise so interesting, as a personal

 

challenge he went on to scan the other side of the globe

 

for a Communist Bloc equivalent and found one located in the Urals, the

 

detailed description of which is also included in Ref.

 

<2>. As with the West Virginia Site, the report for the Urals Site was also

 

verified by personnel in the sponsor organization as

 

being substantially correct.

 

What makes the West Virginia/Urals Sites viewings so remarkable is that

 

these are not best-ever examples culled out of a

 

longer list; these are literally the first two site-viewings carried out in

 

a simulated operational-type scenario. In fact, for Price

 

these were the very first two remote viewings in our program altogether, and

 

he was invited to participate in yet further

 

experimentation.

 

Operational Remote Viewing (Semipalatinsk, USSR)

 

Midway through the second year of the program (July 1974) our CIA sponsor

 

decided to challenge us to provide data on a

 

Soviet site of ongoing operational significance. Pat Price was the remote

 

viewer. A description of the remote viewing, taken

 

from our declassified final report <2>, reads as given below. I cite this

 

level of detail to indicate the thought that goes into such

 

an "experiment" to minimize cueing while at the same time being responsive

 

to the requirements of an operational situation.

 

Again, this is not a "best-ever" example from a series of such viewings, but

 

rather the very first operational Soviet target

 

concerning which we were officially tasked.

 

"To determine the utility of remote viewing under operational conditions, a

 

long-distance remote viewing experiment was

 

carried out on a sponsor-designated target of current interest, an

 

unidentified research center at Semipalatinsk, USSR.

 

This experiment, carried out in three phases, was under direct control of

 

the COTR. To begin the experiment, the COTR

 

furnished map coordinates in degrees, minutes and seconds. The only

 

additional information provided was the designation of

 

the target as an R&D test facility. The experimenters then closeted

 

themselves with Subject S1, gave him the map coordinates

 

and indicated the designation of the target as an R&D test facility. A

 

remote-viewing experiment was then carried out. This

 

activity constituted Phase I of the experiment.

 

Figure 3 - Subject effort at building layout

 

Figure 4 - Subject effort at crane

 

construction

 

Figure 3 shows the subject's graphic effort for building layout; Figure 4

 

shows the subject's particular attention to a multistory

 

gantry crane he observed at the site. Both results were obtained by the

 

experimenters on a double-blind basis before

 

exposure to any additional COTR-held information, thus eliminating the

 

possibility of cueing. These results were turned over

 

to the client representatives for evaluation. For comparison an artist's

 

rendering of the site as known to the COTR (but not to

 

the experimenters until later) is shown in Figure 5.....

 

Figure 5 - Actual COTR rendering of Semipalatinsk, USSR

 

target site

 

Were the results not promising, the experiment would have stopped at this

 

point. Description of the multistory crane,

 

however, a relatively unusual target item, was taken as indicative of

 

possible target acquisition. Therefore, Phase II was

 

begun, defined by the subject being made "witting" (of the client) by client

 

representatives who introduced themselves to the

 

subject at that point; Phase II also included a second round of

 

experimentation on the Semipalatinsk site with direct

 

participation of client representatives in which further data were obtained

 

and evaluated. As preparation for this phase, client

 

representatives purposely kept themselves blind to all but general knowledge

 

of the target site to minimize the possibility of

 

cueing. The Phase II effort was focused on the generation of physical data

 

that could be independently verified by other client

 

sources, thus providing a calibration of the process.

 

The end of Phase II gradually evolved into the first part of Phase III, the

 

generation of unverifiable data concerning the

 

Semipalatinsk site not available to the client, but of operational interest

 

nonetheless. Several hours of tape transcript and a

 

notebook of drawings were generated over a two-week period.

 

The data describing the Semipalatinsk site were evaluated by the sponsor,

 

and are contained in a separate report. In general,

 

several details concerning the salient technology of the Semipalatinsk site

 

appeared to dovetail with data from other sources,

 

and a number of specific large structural elements were correctly described.

 

The results contained noise along with the signal,

 

but were nonetheless clearly differentiated from the chance results that

 

were generated by control subjects in comparison

 

experiments carried out by the COTR."

 

For discussion of the ambiance and personal factors involved in carrying out

 

this experiment, along with further detail

 

generated as Price (see Figure 6) "roamed" the facility, including detailed

 

comparison of Price's RV-generated information

 

with later-determined "ground-truth reality," see the accompanying article

 

by Russell Targ in the Journal of Scientific

 

Exploration, Vol. 10, No. 1. Click here to read the abstract.

Picture taken following a successful experiment involving

 

glider-ground RV.

 

Additional experiments having implications for intelligence concerns were

 

carried out, such as the remote viewing of

 

cipher-machine type apparatus, and the RV-sorting of sealed envelopes to

 

differentiate those that contained letters with secret

 

writing from those that did not. To discuss these here in detail would take

 

us too far afield, but the interested reader can

 

follow up by referring to the now-declassified project documents <2>.

 

Follow-on Programs

 

The above discussion brings us up to the end of 1975. As a result of the

 

material being generated by both SRI and CIA

 

remote viewers, interest in the program in government circles, especially

 

within the intelligence community, intensified

 

considerably and led to an ever-increasing briefing schedule. This in turn

 

led to an ever-increasing number of clients, contracts

 

and tasking, and therefore expansion of the program to a multi-client base,

 

and eventually to an integrated joint-services

 

program under single-agency (DIA)6 leadership. To meet the demand for the

 

increased level of effort we first increased our

 

professional staff by inviting Ed May to join the program in 1976, then

 

screened and added to the program a cadre of remote

 

viewers as consultants, and let subcontracts to increase our scope of

 

activity.

 

As the program expanded, in only a very few cases could the clients'

 

identities and program tasking be revealed. Examples

 

include a NASA-funded study negotiated early in the program by Russ Targ to

 

determine whether the internal state of an

 

electronic random-number-generator could be detected by RV processes <16>,

 

and a study funded by the Naval Electronics

 

Systems Command to determine whether attempted remote viewing of distant

 

light flashes would induce correlated changes in

 

the viewer's brainwave (EEG) production <17>. For essentially all other

 

projects during my 14-yr. tenure at SRI, however, the

 

identity of the clients and most of the tasking were classified and remain

 

so today. (The exception was the occasional

 

privately-funded study.) We are told, however, that further declassification

 

and release of much of this material is almost

 

certain to occur.

 

What can be said, then, about further development of the program in the two

 

decades following 1975?7 In broad terms it can

 

be said that much of the SRI effort was directed not so much toward

 

developing an operational U.S. capability, but rather

 

toward assessing the threat potential of its use against the U.S. by others.

 

The words threat assessment were often used to

 

describe the program's purpose during its development, especially during the

 

early years. As a result much of the

 

remote-viewing activity was carried out under conditions where ground-truth

 

reality was a priori known or could be

 

determined, such as the description of U.S. facilities and technological

 

developments, the timing of rocket test firings and

 

underground nuclear tests, and the location of individuals and mobile units.

 

And, of course, we were responsive to requests to

 

provide assistance during such events as the loss of an airplane or the

 

taking of hostages, relying on the talents of an increasing

 

cadre of remote-viewer/consultants, some well-known in the field such as

 

Keith Harary, and many who have not surfaced

 

publicly until recently, such as Joe McMoneagle.

 

One might ask whether in this program RV-generated information was ever of

 

sufficient significance as to influence decisions

 

at a policy level. This is of course impossible to determine unless

 

policymakers were to come forward with a statement in the

 

affirmative. One example of a possible candidate is a study we performed at

 

SRI during the Carter-administration debates

 

concerning proposed deployment of the mobile MX missile system. In that

 

scenario missiles were to be randomly shuffled

 

from silo to silo in a silo field, in a form of high-tech shell game. In a

 

computer simulation of a twenty-silo field with

 

randomly-assigned (hidden) missile locations, we were able, using

 

RV-generated data, to show rather forcefully that the

 

application of a sophisticated statistical averaging technique (sequential

 

sampling) could in principle permit an adversary to

 

defeat the system. I briefed these results to the appropriate offices at

 

their request, and a written report with the technical

 

details was widely circulated among groups responsible for threat analysis

 

<18>, and with some impact. What role, if any, our

 

small contribution played in the mix of factors behind the enormously

 

complex decision to cancel the program will probably

 

never be known, and must of course a priori be considered in all likelihood

 

negligible. Nonetheless, this is a prototypical

 

example of the kind of tasking that by its nature potentially had policy

 

implications.

 

Even though the details of the broad range of experiments, some brilliant

 

successes, many total failures, have not yet been

 

released, we have nonetheless been able to publish summaries of what was

 

learned in these studies about the overall

 

characteristics of remote viewing, as in Table 5 of Reference <8>.

 

Furthermore, over the years we were able to address

 

certain questions of scientific interest in a rigorous way and to publish

 

the results in the open literature. Examples include the

 

apparent lack of attenuation of remote viewing due to seawater shielding

 

(submersible experiments) <8>, the amplification of

 

RV performance by use of error-correcting coding techniques <19,20>, and the

 

utility of a technique we call associational

 

remote viewing (ARV) to generate useful predictive information <21>.8

 

As a sociological aside, we note that the overall efficacy of remote viewing

 

in a program like this was not just a scientific issue.

 

For example, when the Semipalatinsk data described earlier was forwarded for

 

analysis, one group declined to get involved

 

because the whole concept was unscientific nonsense, while a second group

 

declined because, even though it might be real, it

 

was possibly demonic; a third group had to be found. And, as in the case of

 

public debate about such phenomena, the

 

program's image was on occasion as likely to be damaged by an

 

overenthusiastic supporter as by a detractor. Personalities,

 

politics and personal biases were always factors to be dealt with.

 

Official Statements/Perspectives

 

With regard to admission by the government of its use of remote viewers

 

under operational conditions, officials have on

 

occasion been relatively forthcoming. President Carter, in a speech to

 

college students in Atlanta in September 1995, is

 

quoted by Reuters as saying that during his administration a plane went down

 

in Zaire, and a meticulous sweep of the African

 

terrain by American spy satellites failed to locate any sign of the

 

wreckage. It was then "without my knowledge" that the head

 

of the CIA (Adm. Stansfield Turner) turned to a woman reputed to have

 

psychic powers. As told by Carter, "she gave some

 

latitude and longitude figures. We focused our satellite cameras on that

 

point and the plane was there." Independently, Turner

 

himself also has admitted the Agency's use of a remote viewer (in this case,

 

Pat Price).9 And recently, in a segment taped for

 

the British television series Equinox <22>, Maj. Gen. Ed Thompson, Assistant

 

Chief of Staff for Intelligence, U.S. Army

 

(1977-1981), volunteered "I had one or more briefings by SRI and was

 

impressed.... The decision I made was to set up a

 

small, in-house, low-cost effort in remote viewing...."

 

Finally, a recent unclassified report <23> prepared for the CIA by the

 

American Institutes for Research (AIR), concerning a

 

remote viewing effort carried out under a DIA program called Star Gate

 

(discussed in detail elsewhere in this volume), cites

 

the roles of the CIA and DIA in the history of the program, including

 

acknowledgment that a cadre of full-time government

 

employees used remote viewing techniques to respond to tasking from

 

operational military organizations.10

 

As information concerning the various programs spawned by

 

intelligence-community interest is released, and the dialog

 

concerning their scientific and social significance is joined, the results

 

are certain to be hotly debated. Bearing witness to this

 

fact are the companion articles in this volume by Ed May, Director of the

 

SRI and SAIC programs since 1985, and by

 

Jessica Utts and Ray Hyman, consultants on the AIR evaluation cited above.

 

These articles address in part the AIR study.

 

That study, limited in scope to a small fragment of the overall program

 

effort, resulted in a conclusion that although laboratory

 

research showed statistically significant results, use of remote viewing in

 

intelligence gathering was not warranted.

 

Regardless of one's a priori position, however, an unimpassioned observer

 

cannot help but attest to the following fact. Despite

 

the ambiguities inherent in the type of exploration covered in these

 

programs, the integrated results appear to provide

 

unequivocal evidence of a human capacity to access events remote in space

 

and time, however falteringly, by some cognitive

 

process not yet understood. My years of involvement as a research manager in

 

these programs have left me with the

 

conviction that this fact must be taken into account in any attempt to

 

develop an unbiased picture of the structure of reality.

An Assessment of the Evidence for Psychic

 

Functioning

 

by Jessica Utts

 

Division of Statistics, University of California,

 

Davis, CA 95616

 

Volume 10 Number 1: Page 3.

 

Research on psychic functioning, conducted over a two decade period, is

 

examined to determine whether or not the

 

phenomenon has been scientifically established. A secondary question is

 

whether or not it is useful for government purposes.

 

The primary work examined in this report was government sponsored research

 

conducted at Stanford Research Institute,

 

later known as SRI International, and at Science Applications International

 

Corporation, known as SAIC. Using the

 

standards applied to any other area of science, it is concluded that psychic

 

functioning has been well established. The

 

statistical results of the studies examined are far beyond what is expected

 

by chance. Arguments that these results could be

 

due to methodological flaws in the experiments are soundly refuted. Effects

 

of similar magnitude to those found in

 

government-sponsored research at SRI and SAIC have been replicated at a

 

number of laboratories across the world. Such

 

consistency cannot be readily explained by claims of flaws or fraud. The

 

magnitude of psychic functioning exhibited appears

 

to be in the range between what social scientists call a small and medium

 

effect. That means that it is reliable enough to be

 

replicated in properly conducted experiments, with sufficient trials to

 

achieve the long-run statistical results needed for

 

replicability. A number of other patterns have been found, suggestive of how

 

to conduct more productive experiments and

 

applied psychic functioning. For instance, it doesn't appear that a sender

 

is needed. Precognition, in which the answer is

 

known to no one until a future time, appears to work quite well. Recent

 

experiments suggest that if there is a psychic sense

 

then it works much like our other five senses, by detecting change. Given

 

that physicists are currently grappling with an

 

understanding of time, it may be that a psychic sense exists that scans the

 

future for major change, much as our eyes scan the

 

environment for visual change or our ears allow us to respond to sudden

 

changes in sound. It is recommended that future

 

experiments focus on understanding how this phenomenon works, and on how to

 

make it as useful as possible. There is little

 

benefit to continuing experiments designed to offer proof, since there is

 

little more to be offered to anyone who does not

 

accept the current collection of data.

 

Evaluation of a Program on Anomalous Mental

 

Phenomena

 

by Ray Hyman

Eugene, OR 97403

 

Volume 10 Number 1: Page 31.

 

Jessica Utts and I were commissioned to evaluate the research on remote

 

viewing and related phenomena which was carried

 

out at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) and Scientific Applications

 

International Corporation (SAIC) during the years from

 

1973 through 1994. We focussed on the ten most recent experiments which were

 

conducted at SAIC from 1992 through

 

1994. These were not only the most recent but also the most methodologically

 

sound. We evaluated these experiments in the

 

context of contemporary parapsychological research. Professor Utts concluded

 

that the SAIC results, taken in conjunction

 

with other parapsychological research, proved the existence of ESP,

 

especially precognition. My report argues that Professor

 

Utts' conclusion is premature, to say the least. The reports of the SAIC

 

experiments have become accessible for public

 

scrutiny too recently for adequate evaluation. Moreover, their findings have

 

yet to be independently replicated. My report also

 

argues that the apparent consistencies between the SAIC results and those of

 

other parapsychological experiments may be

 

illusory. Many important inconsistencies are emphasized. Even if the

 

observed effects can be independently replicated, much

 

more theoretical and empirical investigation would be needed before one

 

could legitimately claim the existence of paranormal

 

functioning. Note: This article is followed by a response from Jessica Utts.

 

Remote Viewing at Stanford Research Institute in the

 

1970s: A Memoir

 

by Russell Targ

 

Bay Research Institute, 1010 Harriet Street, Palo

 

Alto, CA 94301

 

Volume 10 Number 1: Page 77.

 

Hundreds of remote viewing experiments were carried out at Stanford Research

 

Institute (SRI) from 1972 to 1986. The

 

purpose of some of these trials was to elucidate the physical and

 

psychological properties of psi abilities, while others were

 

conducted to provide information for our CIA sponsor about current events in

 

far off places. We learned that the accuracy

 

and reliability of remote viewing was not in any way affected by distance,

 

size, or electromagnetic shielding, and we

 

discovered that the more exciting or demanding the task, the more likely we

 

were to be successful. Above all, we became

 

utterly convinced of the reality of psi abilities. This article focuses on

 

two outstanding examples: One is an exceptional,

 

map-like drawing of a Palo Alto swimming pool complex, and the other is an

 

architecturally accurate drawing of a gantry

 

crane located at a Soviet weapons laboratory, and verified by satellite

 

photography. The percipient for both of these

 

experiments was Pat Price, a retired police commissioner who was one of the

 

most outstanding remote viewers to walk

 

through the doors of SRI.

 

The American Institutes for Research Review of

 

the

 

Department of Defense's STAR GATE Program: A

 

Commentary

 

by Edwin C. May

 

Cognitive Sciences Laboratory, 330 Cowper Street, Suite 200,

 

Palo Alto, CA 94301

 

Volume 10 Number 1: Page 89.

 

As a result of a Congressionally Directed Activity, the Central Intelligence

 

Agency conducted an evaluation of a 24-year,

 

government-sponsored program to investigate ESP and its potential use within

 

the Intelligence Community. The American

 

Institutes for Research was contracted to conduct the review of both

 

research and operations. Their 29 September 1995 final

 

report was released to the public 28 November 1995. As a result of AIR's

 

assessment, the CIA concluded that a statistically

 

significant effect had been demonstrated in the laboratory, but that there

 

was no case in which ESP had provided data that

 

had ever been used to guide intelligence operations. This paper is a

 

critical review of AIR's methodology and conclusions. It

 

will be shown that there is compelling evidence that the CIA set the outcome

 

with regard to intelligence usage before the

 

evaluation had begun. This was accomplished by limiting the research and

 

operations data sets to exclude positive findings, by

 

purposefully not interviewing historically significant participants, by

 

ignoring previous DOD extensive program reviews, and by

 

using the discredited National Research Council's investigation of

 

parapsychology as the starting point for their review. While

 

there may have been political and administrative justification for the CIA

 

not to accept the government's in-house program for

 

the operational use of anomalous cognition, this appeared to drive the

 

outcome of the evaluation. As a result, they have come

 

to the wrong conclusion with regard to the use of anomalous cognition in

 

intelligence operations and significantly

 

underestimated the robustness of the basic phenomenon.

 

FieldREG Anomalies in Group Situations

Portable random event generators with software to record and index

 

continuous sequences of binary data in field situations

 

are found to produce anomalous outputs when deployed in various group

 

environments. These "FieldREG" systems have

 

been operated under formal protocols in ten separate venues, all of which

 

subdivide naturally into temporal segments, such as

 

sessions, presentations, or days. The most extreme data segments from each

 

of the ten applications, after appropriate

 

correction for multiple sampling, compound to a collective probability

 

against chance expectation of 2 X 10^-4. Interpretation

 

remains speculative at this point, but logbook notes and anecdotal reports

 

from participants suggest that high degrees of

 

attention, intellectual cohesiveness, shared emotion, or other coherent

 

qualities of the groups tend to correlate with the

 

statistically unusual deviations from theoretical expectation in the

 

FieldREG sequences. If sustained over more extensive

 

experiments, such effects could add credence to the concept of a

 

consciousness "field" as an agency for creating order in

 

random physical processes.

 

Anomalous Organization of Random Events by Group

Two Exploratory Experiments

Two experiments explored the hypothesis that when a group of people focus

 

their attention on a common object of interest,

 

order will arise in the environment. An electronic random number generator

 

was used to detect these changes in order. Events

 

judged to be interesting to the group were called periods of high coherence

 

and were predicted to cause corresponding

 

moments of order in the random samples collected during those events;

 

uninteresting events were predicted to cause chance

 

levels of order in the random samples. The first experiment was conducted

 

during an all-day Holotropic Breathwork

 

workshop. The predictions were confirmed, with a significant degree of order

 

observed in the random samples during high

 

group coherence periods (p = 0.002), and chance order observed during low

 

group coherence periods (p = 0.43). The

 

second experiment was conducted during the live television broadcast of the

 

67th Annual Academy Awards. Two random

 

binary generators, located 12 miles apart, were used to independently

 

measure order. The predictions were confirmed for

 

about half of the broadcast period, but the terminal cumulative

 

probabilities were not significant. A post-hoc analysis showed

 

that the strength of the correlation between the output of the two random

 

generators was significantly related (r = 0.94) to the

 

decline in the television viewing audience.

CIA-Initiated Remote Viewing

 

At Stanford Research Institute

 

by H. E. Puthoff, Ph.D.

 

Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin

 

4030 Braker Lane W., #300

 

Austin, Texas 78759-5329

 

Abstract - In July 1995 the CIA declassified, and approved for release,

 

documents revealing its sponsorship in the

 

1970s of a program at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, CA, to

 

determine whether such phenomena as

 

remote viewing "might have any utility for intelligence collection"

 

<1>. Thus began disclosure to the public of a

 

two-decade-plus involvement of the intelligence community in the

 

investigation of so-called parapsychological or psi

 

phenomena. Presented here by the program's Founder and first Director

 

(1972 - 1985) is the early history of the

 

program, including discussion of some of the first, now declassified,

 

results that drove early interest.

 

Introduction

 

On April 17, 1995, President Clinton issued Executive Order Nr. 1995-4-17,

 

entitled Classified National Security

 

Information. Although in one sense the order simply reaffirmed much of what

 

has been long-standing policy, in another sense

 

there was a clear shift toward more openness. In the opening paragraph, for

 

example, we read: "In recent years, however,

 

dramatic changes have altered, although not eliminated, the national

 

security threats that we confront. These changes provide

 

a greater opportunity to emphasize our commitment to open Government." In

 

the Classification Standards section of the

 

Order this commitment is operationalized by phrases such as "If there is

 

significant doubt about the need to classify

 

information, it shall not be classified." Later in the document, in

 

reference to information that requires continued protection,

 

there even appears the remarkable phrase "In some exceptional cases,

 

however, the need to protect such information may be

 

outweighed by the public interest in disclosure of the information, and in

 

these cases the information should be declassified."

 

A major fallout of this reframing of attitude toward classification is that

 

there is enormous pressure on those charged with

 

maintaining security to work hard at being responsive to reasonable requests

 

for disclosure. One of the results is that FOIA

 

(Freedom of Information Act) requests that have languished for months to

 

years are suddenly being acted upon.1

 

One outcome of this change in policy is the government's recent admission of

 

its two-decade-plus involvement in funding

 

highly-classified, special access programs in remote viewing (RV) and

 

related psi phenomena, first at Stanford Research

 

Institute (SRI) and then at Science Applications International Corporation

 

(SAIC), both in Menlo Park, CA, supplemented

 

by various in-house government programs. Although almost all of the

 

documentation remains yet classified, in July 1995 270

 

pages of SRI reports were declassified and released by the CIA, the

 

program's first sponsor <2>. Thus, although through the

 

years columns by Jack Anderson and others had claimed leaks of "psychic spy"

 

programs with such exotic names as Grill

 

Flame, Center Lane, Sunstreak and Star Gate, CIA's release of the SRI

 

reports constitutes the first documented public

 

admission of significant intelligence community involvement in the psi area.

 

As a consequence of the above, although I had founded the program in early

 

1972, and had acted as its Director until I left in

 

1985 to head up the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin (at which point

 

my colleague Ed May assumed responsibility as

 

Director), it was not until 1995 that I found myself for the first time able

 

to utter in a single sentence the connected acronyms

 

CIA/SRI/RV. In this report I discuss the genesis of the program, report on

 

some of the early, now declassified, results that

 

drove early interest, and outline the general direction the program took as

 

it expanded into a multi-year, multi-site,

 

multi-million-dollar effort to determine whether such phenomena as remote

 

viewing "might have any utility for intelligence

 

collection" <1>.

 

Beginnings

 

In early 1972 I was involved in laser research at Stanford Research

 

Institute (now called SRI International) in Menlo Park,

 

CA. At that time I was also circulating a proposal to obtain a small grant

 

for some research in quantum biology. In that

 

proposal I had raised the issue whether physical theory as we knew it was

 

capable of describing life processes, and had

 

suggested some measurements involving plants and lower organisms <3>. This

 

proposal was widely circulated, and a copy

 

was sent to Cleve Backster in New York City who was involved in measuring

 

the electrical activity of plants with standard

 

polygraph equipment. New York artist Ingo Swann chanced to see my proposal

 

during a visit to Backster's lab, and wrote

 

me suggesting that if I were interested in investigating the boundary

 

between the physics of the animate and inanimate, I should

 

consider experiments of the parapsychological type. Swann then went on to

 

describe some apparently successful experiments

 

in psychokinesis in which he had participated at Prof. Gertrude Schmeidler's

 

laboratory at the City College of New York. As

 

a result of this correspondence I invited him to visit SRI for a week in

 

June 1972 to demonstrate such effects, frankly, as

 

much out of personal scientific curiosity as anything else.

 

Prior to Swann's visit I arranged for access to a well-shielded magnetometer

 

used in a quark-detection experiment in the

 

Physics Department at Stanford University. During our visit to this

 

laboratory, sprung as a surprise to Swann, he appeared to

 

perturb the operation of the magnetometer, located in a vault below the

 

floor of the building and shielded by mu-metal

 

shielding, an aluminum container, copper shielding and a superconducting

 

shield. As if to add insult to injury, he then went on

 

to "remote view" the interior of the apparatus, rendering by drawing a

 

reasonable facsimile of its rather complex (and

 

heretofore unpublished) construction. It was this latter feat that impressed

 

me perhaps even more than the former, as it also

 

eventually did representatives of the intelligence community. I wrote up

 

these observations and circulated it among my

 

scientific colleagues in draft form of what was eventually published as part

 

of a conference proceedings <4>.

 

In a few short weeks a pair of visitors showed up at SRI with the above

 

report in hand. Their credentials showed them to be

 

from the CIA. They knew of my previous background as a Naval Intelligence

 

Officer and then civilian employee at the

 

National Security Agency (NSA) several years earlier, and felt they could

 

discuss their concerns with me openly. There was,

 

they told me, increasing concern in the intelligence community about the

 

level of effort in Soviet parapsychology being funded

 

by the Soviet security services <5>; by Western scientific standards the

 

field was considered nonsense by most working

 

scientists. As a result they had been on the lookout for a research

 

laboratory outside of academia that could handle a quiet,

 

low-profile classified investigation, and SRI appeared to fit the bill. They

 

asked if I could arrange an opportunity for them to

 

carry out some simple experiments with Swann, and, if the tests proved

 

satisfactory, would I consider a pilot program along

 

these lines? I agreed to consider this, and arranged for the requested

 

tests.2

 

The tests were simple, the visitors simply hiding objects in a box and

 

asking Swann to attempt to describe the contents. The

 

results generated in these experiments are perhaps captured most eloquently

 

by the following example. In one test Swann said

 

"I see something small, brown and irregular, sort of like a leaf or

 

something that resembles it, except that it seems very much

 

alive, like it's even moving!" The target chosen by one of the visitors

 

turned out to be a small live moth, which indeed did look

 

like a leaf. Although not all responses were quite so precise, nonetheless

 

the integrated results were sufficiently impressive that

 

in short order an eight-month, $49,909 Biofield Measurements Program was

 

negotiated as a pilot study, a laser colleague

 

Russell Targ who had a long-time interest and involvement in parapsychology

 

joined the program, and the experimental

 

effort was begun in earnest.

 

Early Remote Viewing Results

 

During the eight-month pilot study of remote viewing the effort gradually

 

evolved from the remote viewing of symbols and

 

objects in envelopes and boxes, to the remote viewing of local target sites

 

in the San Francisco Bay area, demarked by

 

outbound experimenters sent to the site under strict protocols devised to

 

prevent artifactual results. Later judging of the results

 

were similarly handled by double-blind protocols designed to foil

 

artifactual matching. Since these results have been presented

 

in detail elsewhere, both in the scientific literature <6-8> and in popular

 

book format <9>, I direct the interested reader to these

 

sources. To summarize, over the years the back-and-forth criticism of

 

protocols, refinement of methods, and successful

 

replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories

 

<10-14>, has yielded considerable scientific evidence for

 

the reality of the phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was

 

the discovery that a growing number of individuals

 

could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their

 

own surprise, such as the talented Hella Hammid.

 

As a separate issue, however, most convincing to our early program monitors

 

were the results now to be described,

 

generated under their own control.

 

First, during the collection of data for a formal remote viewing series

 

targeting indoor laboratory apparatus and outdoor

 

locations (a series eventually published in toto in the Proc. IEEE <7>), the

 

CIA contract monitors, ever watchful for possible

 

chicanery, participated as remote viewers themselves in order to critique

 

the protocols. In this role three separate viewers,

 

designated visitors V1 - V3 in the IEEE paper, contributed seven of the 55

 

viewings, several of striking quality. Reference to

 

the IEEE paper for a comparison of descriptions/drawings to pictures of the

 

associated targets, generated by the contract

 

monitors in their own viewings, leaves little doubt as to why the contract

 

monitors came to the conclusion that there was

 

something to remote viewing (see, for example, Figure 1 herein). As

 

summarized in the Executive Summary of the

 

now-released Final Report <2> of the second year of the program, "The

 

development of this
