A Declassified Look Into the Psychic Ability of Remote Viewing

What Is Remote Viewing?

Remote viewing is a set of protocols that scientifically define the ability to perceive, describe and experience objects, pictures, and locations that are not perceived using ordinary senses, which is also known as extra-sensory perception.

Declassified government documents reveal that the U.S. government spent $20 million and more than 20 years on defining this ability and how it could be used in national defense.

The Evolution of Remote Viewing

In the early 1970s, Russell Targ, Ingo Swann, and Harold Puthoff began research on identifying, exploring, and defining remote viewing at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI).

Early research indicated that Viewers, those with extra-sensory perception, were able to accurately describe targets, without being told anything about them. But this research needed to be up to the scientific standard, which meant they needed to have rules, in place to make their claims legitimate.

Remote Viewing Protocols

There needed to be sets of rules that govern remote viewing:

Planned and aimed: A viewing must be intentional. If it appears in the form of a dream or a random flash, it is not remote viewing.

Recorded: It could be recorded by audio, video, or by hand.

Double-Blind: Neither the scientists nor the Viewer can know what the target is before the data have been collected. It may be triple-blind in the event there is a computer involved.

Feedback: There has to be a way to determine how accurate the responses are, which means there has to be data to compare the responses to give them value.

Outbound Remote Viewing

To rule out any possibility that the viewers were describing targets from memory, they incorporated the Outbounder protocol.

The viewers were expected to accurately describe the surroundings in various places in Europe. This would be verified by a person, called the Outbound, who would be in the target location, 5,000 miles (8,046.72 km) away, 24 hours into the future. At the right time, the Outbound would focus on their surroundings, which the Viewer would attempt to perceive, and then take a picture for verification.

The Viewer was able to accurately describe the Outbounder's surroundings at a remarkable rate. To further legitimize their findings, the researchers created larger sets of rules to define each protocol for different types of remote viewing.

Coordinate Remote Viewing

The researchers had to ensure that the viewers were not dependent on previous knowledge to identify a target location and eliminate other possible explanations left open by the Outbounder Protocol.

The analysts would choose a set of coordinates, write them down, put them in an envelope and encode the actual coordinates with a random string of numbers. This became known as Coordinate Remote Viewing (CRV).

This random string of numbers was the only indicator that the viewers had, and they were able to describe the target with the same amount of accuracy as they did with the Outbounder protocol.

Associative Remote Viewing (ARV)

This is the preferred protocol for precognitive remote viewing to ensure that the viewer is perceiving the target through someone else's eyes rather than psychically seeing into the future.

They found through their research that viewers had a difficult time reading words and numbers when remote viewing. They experienced something similar to dyslexia, where the figures would come through jumbled up and unreadable.

Instead, they were able to use images as a representation that viewers could perceive that were associated with the intended target. The results were in favor of precognitive remote viewing.

Extended Remote Viewing (ERV)

Extended Remote Viewing is an open-ended response style useful in forwarding targeting, coined by Joseph McMoneagle. Future events that the viewer is attempting to perceive the outcome of are written down with their dates and put into an envelope. To eliminate the possibility of feeding information to the viewer, a phrase associated with the event is written down instead.

The Viewer is then guided through questioning until a prediction can be made about the event. It is done in a session that extends longer than previous sessions.

The History of Remote Viewing

Although the definition and research into remote viewing started in the early 1970s, the term remote viewing started to gain popularity in 1995, upon the release of declassified government documents that revealed over 20 years of research and $20 million in identifying, exploring, and defining the scientific parameters of the psychic phenomenon.

The project was called Star Gate and it ran between 1978 and 1995. The purpose of it was to explore and understand the legitimacy of such an ability and discover its potential uses in the interest of national defense.

The research was also done, during the Cold War, after there were rumors that the Soviets already had the use of psychic abilities to their advantage. Star Gate was launched a few years after research into remote viewing had already begun to confirm or deny the possibility of remote viewing being used against them.

Everyone Has the Potential

In these declassified documents, the researchers are looking for candidates who are highly talented, which means they need a screening process that can detect those with substantial psychic abilities among others, who may have been accidentally influenced during their previous psychic tests.

As it is stated on page 7 in the CIA document called Special Training Techniques, “It is now generally agreed that psychic functioning is an innate or latent ability, somewhat similar to musical talent. That is, all people have it to some degree, but there is a wide range of abilities from the psychically tone-deaf, to the virtuoso performer.”

The project ended in 1995, after which the documents were declassified when they were unable to find any military use for the ability.

Remote viewing is a guideline to use that psychic ability, not the ability itself. You have the same level of psychic ability that you're born with.
