Major Ed Dames was one of five officers trained to monitor and analyze ‘remote viewing’, a technique said to allow users to psychically ‘see’ locations, events or other information from great distances.
The top-secret project, run by the Defense Intelligence Agency, would be dubbed Project StarGate. Between 1972 and 1995, the CIA and other US governmental organizations asked dozens of young citizens to explore an unconquered frontier: the realm of the psyche.
Commonly found in the Stargate documents are handwritten records of remote viewing sessions with simple sketches and graphics. Also known as clairvoyance, remote viewing is the ability to use extrasensory perception (ESP) to “see” or “sense” a far-distant object, person, or place. The CIA has revealed details of its “Project Star Gate” mission to develop psychic abilities for the first time.
The revelations come as part of a huge dump of documents – almost 12 million in all – that are being made available on the internet. Did the US government really shut it down? Is there evidence to suggest that it was “shut down” for other reasons?
Some might call it definitive proof that the program is still running is the ‘whistle-blowing,’ of Ingo Swann. Ingo was the primary participant in multiple studies conducted by the CIA, NSA, the DOD, alongside researchers at Stanford University, on the subject of “Remote Viewing.”
The FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) resulted in the government’s recent admission of its two-decade-plus involvement in funding highly classified, special access programs in remote viewing and related psi phenomena. First at Stanford Research Institute and then at Science Applications International Corporation (SIAC), both supplemented by various in-house government programs.– H.E. Puthoff
The Stargate programme inspired the 2009 film The Men Who Stare At Goats starring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor.
According to our best estimates, more than half of all U.S. government records are classified. For an archivist seeking to preserve and understand our history, that means most of our history is kept secret from us, think about that for a moment – Richard Dolan
Remote viewers can often contact, experience and describe a hidden object, or a remote natural or architectural site, based on the presence of a cooperative person at the distant location, or when given geographical coordinates, or some other target demarcation — which they call an ‘address’. Shape, form and color are described much more reliably than the target’s name, function, or other analytical information. In addition to vivid visual imagery, viewers sometimes describe associated feelings, sounds, smells and even electrical or magnetic fields. Blueprint accuracy has occasionally been achieved in these double-blind experiments, and reliability in a series can be as high as 80 percent.
Recent research in areas as different as distant healing and quantum physics are in agreement with the oldest spiritual teachings of the sages of India, who taught that “separation is an illusion.” The powers we are discovering now are described by Rishis as ‘Siddhis’, or fruits of deep penance and arcane Yogic techniques, verbally transmitted, only known to inner circles.
The military and institutional exploitation of this timeless phenomenon are alarming. It is being harnessed by world governments in a game of cosmic unseen forces, none of whom can possibly know the ramifications of. This seems to be a pattern in human history. Abusing information or technology to the point of destruction. When information is being suppressed from the public it is never for a reason that benefits us.
