Edward Dames [Major, Ret.] was assigned for over two years to the U.S. Army intelligence unit that utilized Controlled Remote Viewing as a data collection tool. Prior to his military retirement he founded Psi-Tech Corporation, a company now based in Beverly Hills, California, of which is he is the President.
Ed Dames Dames was one of the first five Army students trained by Ingo Swann through Stage 3 in coordinate remote viewing. Because Dames' role was intended to be as session monitor and analyst as an aid to Fred Atwater  rather than a remote viewer, Dames received no further formal remote viewing training. After his assignment to the remote viewing unit at the end of January 1986 he was used to "run" remote viewers (as monitor) and provide training and practice sessions to viewer personnel. He soon established a reputation for pushing CRV to extremes, with target sessions on Atlantis, Mars, UFOs, and aliens. He has been a guest more than 30 times on the Coast to Coast AM radio show.
The world's foremost remote viewing teacher, and creator of Technical Remote Viewing, Major Edward A. Dames, United States Army (ret.), is a decorated military intelligence officer and an original member of the U.S. Army prototype remote viewing training program. He served as both training and operations officer for the U.S. government's TOP SECRET psychic espionage unit. Background: Edward Dames is a ROTC Distinguished Military Graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. Between 1979 and 1983, Major Dames served as an electronic warfare officer and scientific and technical intelligence officer
Ed dames is, how do I put this? Is considered a whack job by most of the other ones listed here so far...
If you ever get to speak with him, ask about how santa is doing.
This is due to his behavior and obsession with linking all incidents to and massive off targeting behavior during his time as a monitor. He violated a lot of the frontloading rules and it sometimes cost him his access to the targets.
This does not limit his abilities to a point, just the reliability of the data
As president of PSI TECH, Incorporated, my primary occupation is the dissemination of accurate and precise data, derived from technical remote viewing. Over the last year, I have had occasion to observe several of my former military subordinates engaging in an inordinate distortion of facts about me, but chalked up their public statements to jealousy and "sour grapes." This group of individuals had failed to make the grade as trained military remote viewers. My tolerance for their distortion of facts about my own background and the history of military remote viewing, has now reached its limits

SRI International, founded as Stanford Research Institute, is one of the world's largest contract research institutes.
Based in the United States, the trustees of Stanford University established it in 1946 as a center of innovation to support economic development in the region.
It was later incorporated as an independent non-profit organization under U.S. and California laws.
Leonard (Lyn) Buchanan is the Executive Director of Problems> Solutions>Innovations (P>S>I) which started as a small data analysis company in the Washington, D.C. area in 1992, after Lyn’s retirement from the military. In late 1995, when the US government declassified their Remote Viewing project, information became public about Lyn’s prior involvement with that project as one of the unit’s Remote Viewers, Database Manager, Property Book Officer and as the unit’s Trainer. Public demands for training and applications became great, and P>S>I moved into the remote viewing field full time, bringing with it Lyn's extensive databasing capabilities. At the present time, P>S>I possesses the most complete body of data on the applications of remote viewing in real-world applications.
Leonard "Lyn" Buchanan was assigned for over eight years to the U.S. Army intelligence unit that utilized Controlled Remote Viewing as a data collection tool. He functioned as a Viewer, a CRV Instructor, and a Viewer profile (database) manager, as well as misc. duties many members performed (e.g., Monitoring). After his retirement from military service in 1992, he founded The AWP to assist civilian intelligence (police, FBI, etc.) in locating missing children, and founded Problems>Solutions>Innovations to develop solutions for intelligence-related data acquisition. This includes the training of civilians in the discipline of CRV and its related skills. He created The Controlled Remote Viewing Home Page to provide the public information on CRV, and gives lectures and media appearances related to the subject when time allows.
Someone had asked: > Most importantly, why do professional RVers seem to believe that -- except in the case of crooks,missing persons, etc. -- it is an invasion of privacy to mine the thoughts and emotions of an unwitting US resident? Lyn responded: > Because it is. I, personally, find it very distasteful to go looking around someone else’s private living space. Even when people tell me to view them to see whether or not they are sincere and will make a good student, I refuse. As for specifically spying on the "US resident", there was a presidential order (Executive Order) which came out during the Ford administration, called EO 11-905. It detailed the rights of US citizens to not be spied on, and delineated what rights and under what conditions government - at all its various levels - had for spying on US Citizens. This was later superceded by EO 12-333, and can be found and read in its entirety on the Internet. Just search Google for "12-333" or "12333". Controlled Remote Influencing (CRI) theory is not part of Ingo Swann’s structure," Lyn emphasized, "but a development which built on it. It is also a very powerful tool, and not a toy. In the hands of an amateur, it can wreak havoc and be very dangerous."
Dr. May has managed complex, interdisciplinary research projects for the US federal government since 1985. He presided over 70% of the funding and 85% of the data collection for the government’s 24-year involvement in parapsychological research. His responsibilities included fund raising, personnel management, project administration and planning, and he was the guiding force for the technical research effort. Currently, Dr. May is the Executive Director of the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory which now resides within the Laboratories for Fundamental Research. Prior to this appointment, Dr. May was the Director of a similar program at Science Applications International Corporation and before that at SRI International. Dr. May has been involved in anomalous mental phenomena research since 1972.
Edwin C. May spent the first part of his research career in his chosen Ph.D.-degreed discipline, Low Energy, Experimental Nuclear Physics, which he earned in 1968 at the University of Pittsburgh. Before leaving that career he had published 16 papers in the peer-reviewed physics literature including his report of the first measurement of the singlet state of the deuteron which appeared in the prestigious journal Physical Review Letters.
When he predicted Hitler's death if the Fuhrer "turned toward the East." Hitler had a sum of 200,000 marks put on his head. If Hitler, who was fascinated by the occult arts, had listened to Messing rather than his advisors, the war would have gone differently. Messing was arrested by the Germans. At the police station, he gave the officers a mental order to go to a room in the other end of the building, even his guards. He wrote: "When, responding to my will, the police had all gathered in that room, I lay completely motionless, as if dead. Then, quickly, I ran into the corridor. Instanly, before they could come to, I slid the iron bolt on the door..."
Wolf Messing was born on 10th of September, 1899 on the territory of Russian Empire in a tiny jewish place near Warsaw (currently the territory of Poland). His surprising psychic abilities were discovered at his early age. In 1937 Messing predicted the death of Adolf Hitler if he decides invading Russia, due to this fact he attracted an attention of Gestapo, Nazi German secret service. He was arrested in Warsaw and sent to prison. While he were imprisoned in the cell he used his hypnosis power to gather all the personnel of the prison in his camera including the chief of the prison, then he made them believe that there are diamonds scattered across the floor of his cell. The Nazi guards started collecting the diamonds while he just freely left the cell and closed the cell door after himself. After that he fled to USSR, while all his other relatives tragically died in Nazi concentration camps.
Edgar Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) (pronounced /ˈkeɪsiː/) was an American who claimed to be a psychic with the ability to channel answers to questions on subjects such as health or Atlantis while in a self-induced trance. Though Cayce considered himself a devout Christian and lived before the emergence of the New Age Movement, some believe he was the founder of the movement and influenced its teachings.
About Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc. (A.R.E.®), is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1931 by Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), to research and explore transpersonal subjects such as holistic health, ancient mysteries, personal spirituality, dreams and dream interpretation, intuition, and philosophy and reincarnation.
Star Gate review 1995 In 1995 the American Institute for Research released "An Evaluation of Remote Viewing: Research and Applications" by Mumford, Rose and Goslin. This document contained the two summaries of evidence regarding remote viewing written by Ray Hyman and Jessica Utts where they assess the results of the ten most recent SAIC experiments (Ed May had originally been asked to provide the labs ten best experiments, but he decided this would not make for a fair assessment, so he supplied details of the last ten). In parapsychological literature it is usually assumed that these two parts were the only parts considered in the judgement of the efficacy of remote viewing in intelligence gathering. But a third part, which summarised the experiences of a number of people who had actually tested remote viewing in something approaching an operational environment is perhaps more detrimental that Hyman's report. The first review was from Jessica Utts, and it is a solidly written piece of work. It deftly introduces the definitions of the phenomena being examined as well as the statistical methods used to measure them. She explains the ten experiments being examined and their results as well as comparing them to results from other laboratories (using ganzfeld data from four other institutions) to demonstrate a replicable effect size. On the first page of her report she makes the statement that " Using the standards applied to any other area of science, it is concluded that psychic functioning has been well established." Ray Hyman's paper gave a brief history of arguments against parapsychology, including Rhine, the Soal controversy and the early ganzfeld work and he doesn't talk much about the SAIC experiments at all. Utts has a reply printed afterwards, answering Hyman's remarks about parapsychology. The last part, called " Evaluating the Utility of Remote Viewing in Intelligence Operations" talked about the use of remote viewing in something approaching operational circumstances. It contains a number of interviews with people (who remain anonymous) who'd asked for some remote viewing to be carried out on a particular subject. In interview one, the interviewee says "The information provided by these viewings was not held to be useful in any operational sense. The reasons stated for reaching this conclusion were: 1) the information was too broad and too vague to direct relevant observations: 2) crucial elements of the case, particularly financial concerns, did not appear in any of the reports; 3) the information provided could be interpreted in too many different ways; 4) hits were often stereotypic given the available cues in the tasking; 5) there were a large number of demonstrably wrong conclusions." In interview two, the interviewee claimed that some of the data given by the remote viewers was of use but "some degree of accuracy could be expected if the viewers had a knowledge of the sponsoring organization and its areas of interest." The same report already stated that "The viewers had some knowledge of the target organizations and their operations but not the background of the particular tasking at hand." In the third interview "all members of the group stated that the information was too vague and ambiguous for operations, noting that unless specific map locations could be identified, the information could not be used in operational decision making."
Remote viewing (RV) is a fancy name for telepathy or clairvoyance, the alleged psychic ability to perceive places, persons, and actions that are not within the range of the senses. The term seems to have been invented by physicist Dr. Russell Targ and physicist/scientologist Dr. Harold Puthoff to describe their work with alleged psychics for the U.S. government in a project known as Star Gate.
We can take or leave this search for correspondences, and Western science has decided , in large part, to leave it. Radical connectivity just hasn't made sense to the rational mind. Though perhaps the better we understand our condition, it makes the best sense.
One thing we are, and that we share with all life, is code. Single-celled creatures that lived billions of years ago were written with the same four-letter nucleic alphabet as we are. Nothing on Earth has endured like DNA. Nothing on Earth can even account for it. Its co-discoverer Francis Crick contended that it must be of extraterrestrial origin, much as shamans claimed life descended from a cosmic serpent.
Jeremy Narby's The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge is a fascinating account of an anthropologist trying to make sense of his own ayahuasca vision of giant, twinned snakes, why such visions are so common, and why creation myths around the world share the same imagery. ("Ayahuasca," by the way, has a value of 58, which corresponds with "awakens," "cosmos," "drunk" and "kabbalah.")
The first time Narby saw the paintings of shaman Pablo Amaringo he was impressed by their correspondence to his own ayahuasca-induced visions. Amaringo claims to paint only what he has seen and experienced in the shaman ritual. Images include writhing vines and twisted snakes, zigzag staircases and UFOs.
Increasingly, Narby was struck by the visual cues of DNA. He showed Amaringo's work to a friend with a good understanding of molecular biology who told him "Look - there's collagen. And there, the axon's embryonic network with its neurites. Those are triple helixes. And that's DNA from afar, looking like a telephone cord. This looks like chromosomes at a specific phase...."
In 1980 scientists determined that all cells emit photons at a rate of up to 100 units per second, and that DNA is the source of the photon emissions. The wavelength at which DNA emits photons "corresponds exactly to the narrow band of visible light." DNA emits a regular, coherent source of light: researchers compare it to an "ultra-weak laser." When Narby asked a scientific journalist friend what that implied, his friend explained "a coherent source of light, like a laser, gives the sensation of bright colors, a luminescence, and an impression of holographic depth."
DNA has a crystaline aspect with hexagonal, quartz-like base pairs. Most of its length is aperiodic, as the sequences of base pairs is irregular. However, writes Narby, "this is not the case for the repeat sequences that make up a full third of the genome, such as ACACACACACACACAC." Junk DNA, it's been called.
In these sequences, DNA becomes a regular arrangement of atoms, a periodic crystal - which could, by analogy with quartz, pick up as many photons as it emits. The variation in the length of the repeat sequences (some of which contain up to 300 bases) would help pick up different frequencies and could thereby constitute a possible and new function for a part of "junk" DNA.
Narby wonders whether DNA, stimulated by such drugs as '___' - the principal hallucinogen of ayahuasca and created naturally in the human brain - activates "not only its emission of photons (which inundate our consciousness in the form of hallucinations), but also its capacity to pick up the photons emitted by the global network of DNA-based life? This would mean the biosphere itself, which can be considered 'as a more or less fully interlinked unit,' is the source of the images."
A study was undertaken in 2001-2002 to investigate theories about capabilities to gather information remotely about what people may be seeing and to determine the potential value, if any, of such theories to Defence. The Ministry of Defence has released the findings of this study in response to a Freedom of Information request and we are pleased to now make it available to a wider audience via the MOD Freedom of Information Disclosure Log. Where indicated information has been withheld in accordance with Section 26 (Defence), Section 27 (International Relations), Section 40 (Personal Information), Section 41 (Information Provided In Confidence) and Section 43 (Commercial Interests) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
The Ministry of Defence has defended a decision to carry out tests to find out whether psychic powers could be used to detect hidden objects.
The MoD refused to discuss the possible applications of psychic techniques, but said that the study had concluded there was "little value" in using "remote viewing" in the defence of the nation. "The remote viewing study was conducted to assess claims made in some academic circles and to validate research carried out by other nations on psychic ability," said a spokeswoman. She added: "The study concluded that remote viewing theories had little value to the MoD and was taken no further."
