Stargate and the Military’s Psychic Spies
You may have heard of or seen the George Clooney and Ewan McGregor film The Men Who Stare at Goats. Despite whatever you may think about that film the general idea behind the movie is true, that the military tried to develop a range of psychic skills for spying.
For at least 20 years, the US military funded psychic investigation of this type and others, and teams of psychics were apparently used for example to find information about the Pam Am flight 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland and to find details about the Iraqi military’s activities before and during the first Gulf War among many many other things. The most well-known program was called Stargate (or STAR GATE) which was ended in 1995. At that time, there were at least three psychics working to gather information with a half million dollar budget, with an office in Fort Meade, Maryland (I’m not sure why 3 psychics in a room would cost so much). The military investigated psychic techniques such as remote viewing, channeling, tarot cards, remote influencing but none of the techniques seemed to spark the fire that remote viewing did. Many other world governments have invested money in psychic investigations as well. Did they uncover anything useful after all that research? We don’t really know how many such programs still exist because they would be secret and their techniques classified of course because otherwise they would loose the advantage that their advances may afford them as psychic spies.
A short explanation of the history from Lyn Buchanan:
There are a large number of former trained military psychics that have come forward with their story about the capabilities of the techniques that were developed. For example, you can find information about the following people related to the psychic ability programs: Leonard (Lyn) Buchanan, Mel Riley, Ed Dames, Joseph McMoneagle, Paul H. Smith, Russell Targ, Ingo Swann, Dr. Edwin May, Pat Price, F. Holmes “Skip” Atwater and David Morehouse. All of these people are former trained military psychics or else people involved in developing or administrating the military’s remote viewing/psychic programs. Even more interesting than the history of the original programs is that nowdays many of these people are involved with private workshops teaching others various techniques across the country and the world. They all seemed to have been dramatically effected by the experience and many of them have written books about their experiences:
Psychic Warrior : Inside the CIA’s Stargate Program: The True Story of a Soldier’s Espionage and Awakening – David Morehouse
The Seventh Sense: The Secrets of Remote Viewing as Told by a “Psychic Spy” for the U.S. Military – Lyn Buchanan
Mind Trek: Exploring Consciousness, Time, and Space Through Remote Viewing – Joseph McMoneagle
Limitless Mind: A Guide to Remote Viewing and Transformation of Consciousness – Russell Targ
Tell Me What You See: Remote Viewing Cases from the World’s Premier Psychic Spy – Ed Dames
Reading the Enemy’s Mind: Inside Star Gate: America’s Psychic Espionage Program – Paul H. Smith
This to me suggests the authenticity of the methods: a large group of people formerly working with the techniques in a professional environment truly appear to believe in their effectiveness. Often in interviews, many of them argue convincingly about their experiences and also about the significance of this supernatural information source that they tap into. In turn, this has led many people who are fascinated by the ideas and the possibilities and want to use the techniques in practical ways, to take a shot at learning psychic abilities for themselves.
