The American Government & Remote Viewing

The American Government & Remote Viewing

Link to Original Article 

Edwin May, the scientist who was previously running the government’s ESP (extrasensory perception) program before its demise in 1995 told Newsweek that ESP has, “already been proved”. Seem a bit shocking? We thought so, too.

But May is not the only government employee that supports this research. Former Senator William Cohen spoke positively of the ESP research saying, “I was impressed with the concept of remote viewing,” this comment was sent to Newsweek via email.

So, what is remote viewing? It’s the practice of seeing impressions of a distant or even invisible/unseen target with subjective means, namely ESP. Many considering remote viewing a pseudoscience, but clearly Edwin May and William Cohen, both prominent members of the government at one time, would disagree.

The study of Remote viewing was related to the Stargate Project, which was a $20 million dollar research program begun in 1975 by the US government in an attempt to discover if there was any credence to the possibilities of remote viewing and ESP.

As previously mentioned, the program was terminated in 1995. However, Mr. May has continued experimenting with ESP and remote viewing despite the lack of support from the government.

    A good friend of mine (Dave M.) learned how to remote view from a place called the Farsight Institute or something like that. He gave me a part of a manual he still had from them. It was pretty cool to read, as it talked about some of the mechanics: how to draw certain land forms, terrain, etc… He said part of the training was remote viewing different events through time. Cool subject. I hope the guys do a show about it.

      Hi Adam!
      I was just replying to Scott’s post below, that I’m very much interested in Remote Viewing myself, and we will definitely cover it in an episode, but it might be a ways off. In the meantime, I suggest reading Remote Viewing Secrets: A Handbook by Joseph McMoneagle, who was one of the core team members of Project Stargate, if you’re interested in learning the principles and techniques. You can find it here:
      Thanks for listening, and let us know if you end up “viewing” anything interesting!

      Hi Scott,
      Although Remote Viewing is one of my favorite subjects, covering it for an episode might be a ways off, as it’s a meaty one. Also, I was thinking when we do cover it, I might try a Remote Viewing experiment myself while we’re recording, so of course that will involve some training and further study on my part in order to be effective. In any case, it’s definitely on our list, so maybe sometime this summer. Thanks for listening!
