I Can See Clearly Now

See the Unseen 

Remote viewing is a practice that involves using extrasensory perception (ESP) to gain information about a distant or unseen target. It has been used by various organizations, including the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to gather information that is difficult to get through traditional means. In this piece, we will explore the use of remote viewing in the CIA, its history, and its successes and failures.

Remote viewing has its roots in parapsychology, which studies psychic phenomena. In the 1970s, parapsychologists Russell Targ and physicist Harold Puthoff were awarded a contract by the CIA to explore remote viewing. This contract led to the formation of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) International, where Targ and Puthoff conducted their research.

SRI International developed a remote viewing protocol that involved a trained individual, known as a remote viewer, focusing their mind on a specific target, such as a person or a location. 

The remote viewer would then sketch or describe their impressions of the target, and a team of experts analyzed the findings. The CIA used this protocol to gather information on various targets, including foreign military installations, Soviet weapons, and hostages.

One of the most significant successes of remote viewing in the CIA was during the Cold War. In the 1980s, the CIA used remote viewing to gather information on Soviet military installations, including a secret submarine base in Siberia. 

The remote viewers provided accurate descriptions of the base's layout and the type of submarines at the location. Furthermore, this information was crucial to the CIA's understanding of Soviet military capabilities and helped to inform U.S. policy during the Cold War.

Shah Really don't Like it

As a result, remote viewing became a trusted data source during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979-1981. The CIA used remote viewers to gather information on the hostages' whereabouts and conditions. The remote viewers were able to provide accurate descriptions of the hostages' locations and conditions, which helped the CIA to plan a rescue mission.

Despite these successes, remote viewing has its critics. Skeptics argued that remote viewing was not a scientifically valid method of gathering intelligence and were a waste of taxpayer money. In 1995, the CIA released a report that concluded that there was no evidence to support the effectiveness of remote viewing (re-read the last two paragraphs). The report cited a lack of scientific rigor in the research conducted by SRI International. It concluded that the information obtained through remote viewing was no better than that obtained through traditional intelligence methods.

It ain't Over

However, some individuals involved in the remote viewing program at SRI International and the CIA maintained that it was effective. One of the most vocal proponents of remote viewing is a former CIA officer named David Morehouse. Morehouse claims that he could use remote viewing to gather information on a range of targets, including drug traffickers and terrorist organizations.

Similarly, a man named Ingo Swann was involved in the U.S. military's Stargate Project, a classified program investigating psychic phenomena such as remote viewing. As part of this program, Swann claims to have remote viewed Jupiter. He has written about his experiences in his book Penetration: The Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy.

According to Swann, during his remote viewing sessions of Jupiter, he reported seeing several features of the planet and its moons, including:

  • A bright and dense central region on the planet, which he described as a "core."
  • Bands of crystals in the atmosphere, which he likened to clouds and possibly like the rings of Saturn.
  • A series of lighter-colored "zones" ran parallel to the equator and the band.
  • Several moons of varying sizes, shapes, and colors, including one that had a "cracked" surface and another that was "pearl-colored" and "iridescent."

Tears of Jupiter 

Swann also claimed to have picked up on "emotional" or "energetic" impressions associated with Jupiter, such as feelings of "detachment" and "isolation."

The interesting aspect of Swann's remote view of Jupiter was in April of 1973. A full six years before the Voyager probe's visit there in 1979, and gave scientific proof of Swann's information.

Want more? Here is the story of another remote viewer, army veteran Joseph McMoneagle who became known as "remote viewer no. 1." He also worked on the Stargate Project from 1978 to 1984 and was involved in some 450 missions. 

McMoneagle speaks to his involvement in his 1984 "trip to Mars." During the remote view prep, he was presented with a sealed envelope containing the information "the planet Mars," whose time of interest was "one million years B.C."

We are Them

McMoneagle, unaware of the contents of this envelope, reported seeing tall, thin people wearing "some kind of strange clothes," obelisks, and pyramids. Afterward, when he learned what the envelope contained, McMoneagle believed that he genuinely did travel back in time to Mars.

He shared his experience viewing many pyramids (like the pictures the Viking Probe took, you can read my blog here) and massive structures on the planet's surface. However, the Mars Pyramids are 13,500 times taller than Giza! I have provided a video (5:40 in) of this man's 2004 presentation for you to view. Joseph says some pyramids are for hibernation and shelter from massive storms. He believes Mars lost its atmosphere from a comment that passed too closely and stripped it away. 

Finally, he uses a Viking Probe picture showing a vast canyon/crater 3000 meters (9,850 ft) deep, with pyramids on either end. The pyramids could not be there before the creation of the canyon. As a result, the pyramids on this site were built into the canyon walls for protection. 

If Martian people existed, where are they? Joseph says that he feels they populated Earth as their planet died. We are the descendants of the Martian people.

It's unreal

So, in recent years, remote viewing has gained popularity in the civilian world. Individuals and organizations use it for various purposes, such as finding lost objects, communicating with deceased loved ones, or even visiting far-off planets. However, the scientific community remains skeptical of remote viewing's validity as a method of gathering information. In other words, it worked for the CIA until it didn't.

In conclusion, remote viewing in the CIA was a controversial and divisive issue. While some claim that it was a valuable tool for gathering intelligence, others argue that it was not scientifically valid and a waste of taxpayer money. Despite its successes in gathering information on Soviet military installations and the Iran hostage crisis, the CIA ultimately concluded that remote viewing was not an effective method of intelligence gathering.

Regardless of its effectiveness, remote viewing remains a fascinating and mysterious topic, and its use in the CIA has left a lasting impact on the field of intelligence gathering.

Travel on

Above all, what if you tried to remote view a part of your life you have questions about? Are you interested to see if you could remote view Mars or Venus? Would you believe or dismiss the information you received as your "wild" imagination? Here in lies the human condition to not believe what is unseen, yet we trust "smarter" people than us daily with information about our health, religion, and even outerspace.

The choice is yours. What do you believe?
