WHERE IS OUR PSYCHIC QUEST LEADING US?
Two books that should make us pause and think.
By By Julianna Joyce Perkins
PSYCHIC WARRIOR REMOTE VIEWERS:
Inside the CIA's The Secret History
Stargate Program of American's Psychic Spies
By David Morehouse By Jim Schnabel
In our fascination of OBE's (out of body experiences) and NDE's (near
death experiences) we tend to embrace the wonderful, spiritual experience,
and forget that there could be a more worldly aspect to this type of
phenomena. Like most people, I've enjoyed learning about psychic
occurrences and having these experiences. But I've discovered there are
other things out there that can get pretty involved.
For those of you who haven't seen the media blitz of the last few years,
there is a technique called Remote Viewing. This ability has caught the
attention of more than just spiritual seekers. In fact, some of the people
involved do not necessarily believe it is spiritual. I'm referring to the
CIA's use of remote viewers for the purpose of espionage and covert
operations. The program was called Stargate.
My first impulse, being the emotional trampolinist that I am, was to be
upset. When I calmed down I started to research this for myself. I found
that this technique is a process developed at the SRI in Palo Alto,
California by Ingo Swann. His abilities were so accurate that he caught
the attention of the government and was given a grant to develop it
further. The trainees went through months and sometimes years of
perfecting their abilities. The experiments resulted in some very
impressive accuracy rates. The viewers would be given co-ordinates, go
through their method of "leaving their bodies" and be able to accurately
describe what they were seeing, feeling, smelling, etc. The development
continued along the road of exploration and the viewers were sent into the
past, into the future, and even attempted visits to other parts of the
Well, of course, my outrage turned to excitement. Think of all the ways
this technique could benefit mankind. We could find missing children. We
could solve crimes. We could even locate disease within a body. As I
pondered, I suddenly realized the impact it would have on me to actually
experience watching someone be brutally harmed and murdered. What would it
do to a person to constantly be placed in that position? What damage would
result on a person's physical and emotional being? I knew I needed to talk
with someone experienced, and who still remained intact. Someone I could
My quest led me first to the book PSYCHIC WARRIOR by David Morehouse. I
found it at Barnes & Noble (my home away from home). It was located in the
science fiction aisle, which surprised me since it's promoted as a true
story. It is written by one of the participants in the Stargate Program.
The cover jacket confirmed that this was a true story. David Morehouse is
a third generation army officer with a long list of military commendations.
I read the book with interest and expectation. I found the story to be a
wonderfully fictionalized account of a true experience, the 'non-fiction'
novel as some publishers call it. Captain Morehouse did indeed participate
in something extremely intense. However the effects of being a "viewer"
almost cost him all that was precious to him. I understand that PSYCHIC
WARRIOR is being made into a movie. It will make a great action film
(although I'm not sure I agree with the 'rumored' actor who will play Capt.
But I wanted something a little closer to the facts.
I turned to the Internet. My perseverance paid off. I found another
member of the program who agreed to correspond with me. He is Ret. Captain
Paul requested I read another book, REMOTE VIEWERS, by the journalist Jim
Schnable. Jim is a science writer and has published in THE WASHINGTON
POST, DISCOVER, NEW SCIENTIST, and other publications of note. The book is
told in true journalist style, and I believe the author kept his
objectivity. If you want to know the nitty-gritty of Stargate, I believe
you'll not be disappointed with this account.
What of the other 'viewers'? What happened to them, their families, and
their lives? Well, unfortunately some of them died before their time.
Some, like David Morehouse, broke under the strain. A few have set up
businesses to utilize their abilities for the general public. Some teach
the technique, which costs about $3,000.00 for a week's training session.
Fortunately there are those like Paul Smith. He and the others managed to
keep their prospective on life through their stint with the bomb searches,
time warps, burning soldiers, and other atrocities. Paul is mentioned in
both books. Both authors write of him with respect. Paul is in the
process of setting up his own corporation. The information he has shared
with me is reflective of the person I read about in the two books. He is
honest and open in his representation of what a person can gain and expect
from his training.
I have many questions regarding ethics and dangers. Paul is still in the
process of sending me information. Since I work in the mental health
field, my mind has concocted many ways I hope the technique will work for
our clients. But we are proceeding cautiously. Both books leave a
sobering effect when you realize that privacy may soon be lost. In the
wrong hands, diabolic deeds can result. And according to both books, a
viewer can actually communicate with someone he is viewing on a level that
is beyond the physical. Information can be obtained and the individual
isn't even aware he is giving it. Even more sobering is the possibility
that the viewer can impart illness and death.
This has been an awakening for me. It has a 'beyond big brother' feel.
However, I also recognize the positive side and can't deny its lure. In
the hands of responsible people Remote Viewing can play a productive role
in our future. Read the books for yourself - PSYCHIC WARRIOR for
entertainment and REMOTE VIEWERS for awareness.
