Human beings have five senses Sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell
At least, that’s what we’re told The truth is that our brains have many more ways of absorbing information to build a picture of the world around us But what if we have an innate, hitherto untapped ability to see beyond our immediate surroundings? What if extrasensory perception is real? This is what scientists at Stanford Research Institute tried to find out in the 1970s Their work on “remote viewing” was surprisingly successful, and so advanced that the CIA took control and classified it top secret They called it the Stargate Project
More excitingly, one of the scientists who founded the project has made a new documentary about the work he did, and I’ve been allowed to watch it before it’s out on all digital platforms on March 1st, 2019 So I’ve done something a little different today because I can’t wait to share my thoughts on it with you Before I do, I’d like to present the trailer to you So please, sit back, enjoy this trailer, and stay tuned The Stargate Project was led by Russell Targ and Dr Hal Puthoff
It was closed in 1995 Recently, using Freedom of Information Requests, Targ and his family forced the CIA to release 70,000 documents to finally allow him, and the other scientists who researched remote viewing, to tell the truth This is the first time people who knew classified material can talk about it Russell Targ also says, “This is the last chance to tell our story” It’s for this reason that I can’t recommend this documentary enough
As well as Targ, it includes interviews with Dr Hal Puthoff, the co-founder of the Remote Viewing Program; Dr Kit Green, the former director of the CIA’s Life Sciences Division; Uri Geller, who was a test subject for Stargate before he was a spoon-bending celebrity; and Ingo Swann, the powerful psychic who coined the term “remote viewing” It also contains original footage and documents from the scientists’ experiments Most startling, however, is how much it reveals about the success of the program One time, Ingo Swann accurately described the rings of Jupiter – six years before NASA’s Voyager got there and photographed them Another time, remote viewers independently and accurately described the top secret, coded contents of files in a secure NSA facility that didn’t officially exist
For two decades, the CIA believed remote viewing could be an essential weapon against the Soviets, who were conducting similar research during the Cold War The dangers posed to the researchers were very real: one remote viewer was found in a hotel room in Las Vegas, dead in mysterious circumstances Yet still today, ESP research is dismissed as a pseudoscience by both the government and the scientific community as a whole In Russell Targ’s opinion, the public deserves to know the truth about the Stargate Project It was funded by taxpayer’s money, after all
As he says, “You paid for it, you deserve to see it” It’s hard to disagree Do you think remote viewing is real? Should the project it have been stopped, and should scientists resurrect research into ESP?
