You think it's just conspiracy nuts that believe the CIA has used psychic experiments? Well, the fact is, the government may make a lot of foolish choices, but it was smart enough to open its mind and look into the potential of using psychics if the craft could be honed and reliable.
The code name for a lot of experiments was Stargate Project. This included following psychic research by universities and remote viewing (the skill of honing in on a remote site by a psychic who doesn't need to be physically at the location to describe it).
In 1995, the program closed down, stating; "The foregoing observations provide a compelling argument against continuation of the program within the intelligence community. Even though a statistically significant effect has been observed in the laboratory, it remains unclear whether the existence of a paranormal phenomenon, remote viewing, has been demonstrated. The laboratory studies do not provide evidence regarding the origins or nature of the phenomenon, assuming it exists, nor do they address an important methodological issue of inter-judge reliability. Further, even if it could be demonstrated unequivocally that a paranormal phenomenon occurs under the conditions present in the laboratory paradigm, these conditions have limited applicability and utility for intelligence gathering operations. For example, the nature of the remote viewing targets are vastly dissimilar, as are the specific tasks required of the remote viewers. Most importantly, the information provided by remote viewing is vague and ambiguous, making it difficult, if not impossible, for the technique to yield information of sufficient quality and accuracy of information for actionable intelligence. Thus, we conclude that continued use of remote viewing in intelligence gathering operations is not warranted.

If you want to try your hand at psychic skills including remote viewing, go get your testing done here. The more often you do it, the more you develop your inherent skills. It's also a nice site because you can compare how you did with others who tested that day.

Yeah, psi spy projects were very real. In fact, it's at the heart of the novel we're working on right now as a follow up to The Mound.ReplyDelete
Yahoo--you said the magic words "follow up to The Mound." I loved that book. I was hoping you two were doing more!Delete
