The UFO subject and the remote viewing subject are both strangely entwined and related to each other. But how? You may have heard of remote viewing
several times. Remote viewing is "The acquisition and description, by mental means, of information blocked by ordinary perception by distance,
shielding or time. A way of perceiving something with mental powers alone using a scientifically designed, protocol driven structured process for
acquiring information." - Lt. Atwater
It is commonly referred to as pseudo-science, or junk science to many. However, unlike tarot card reading, or fortune telling, remote viewing is very
much based on a serious US military intelligence investment & controlled scientific trials (quantitative), as it is on the history of humanity itself
(part intuition). Just to illustrate how much the U.S. was concerned, in the 1970's at least 20 million dollars in legitimate spending money was used
by the CIA, Defense Intelligency Agency, and Army Intelligence in Project Stargate. This does not include black budget spending which is plausible,
but not even calculable.
Remote viewing in history:
More generally referred to as psychic studies, many researchers like Michael Faraday had plunged into this sort of paranormal research in the early
1900's. General skepticism did not let the project go very far in terms of mainstream acceptance. It wasn't until researchers like Russell Targ and
Harold E. Putoff entered the scene by opening research at SRI (Stanford Research Institute) and working at Project Stargate.
Much of the inspiration for remote viewing is argued to have deviated from many eastern inspired religious practices (religious being a misleading
word here, depending on how you view it). Many forms of Buddhism have documented analogous methodologies that describe similar, if not the exact same
process as Remote Viewing in a scientific laboratory.
One step further:
Remote viewing and "telepathy" should not be confused. From what I have gathered, many reliable RV tests have been performed under a double blind
experiment, meaning neither the viewer, nor the issuer knew of the actual subject beforehand. This is important because someone could mistakenly get
an accurate target description by reading someone's mind through telepathy, not the actual target itself. True remote viewing accesses a much larger
database (there are many theories, but it is beyond the scope of this)
The UFO connection
(First, we must eliminate any of our views on "new age." New age may have borrowed many ideas from alternative religions, UFO lore, etc. but it is not
to be considered when looking at the relationship between these two subjects.)
Many prominent remote viewers have claimed that they are able to identify distinctly hidden underground bases, including the personnel, which are
operated with unusual behavior. Pat Price was one of those who claimed to have witnessed such descriptions. He led the initial US government project
with Russell Targ and the other members. His skills were notable, as was famous RV'er Ingo Swann.
CIA director Stansfield Turner said Price was:
'A man who could 'see' what was going on anywhere in the world through his psychic powers.'
Chicago Tribune, August 13, 1977.
Pat Price identified a few bases hidden around the world.
"It appears to be a weather and geological center and has similar security measures to prevent discovery. He described 'computer equipment' and
followed leads on an 'oscilloscope' which led to a small box like structure which contained rotational antenna that sat on top of a mountain peak."
Mt. Perdido (Mt. Perdu)
The base has 2 mile perimeter for security. Many craft were reported to be seen here, including what is described by Pat as an electromagnetic field
'Actually, it's more of a maintenance and tech center,' Price viewed. 'This base looks like overhaul and maintenance unit. I see lots of spare
equipment. Parts are being welded in a vacuum area with window area then parts are fused. A grayish white powder is pasted on both parts then fused.'
The fourth site is Mt. Ziel, a personnel center, in Australia's Northern Territory.
'It is interesting that this unit appears to have the most personnel. There are personnel from the other three sites here, like a rest and
SRI received funding from 1972 to 1985. However, Pat Price allegedly died in 1975 to unknown circumstances (you could make another thread on this, but
all people can do is speculate).
Can Pat Price's data be trusted?
Remote viewing isn't perfect. According to Russell Targ in his book Limitless Mind, seasoned RV's only get the target description 30-80% right. Now,
30% may sound bad, but the things they get right usually depart from chance by a reasonable amount- at least 500-1, and in some cases millions to 1.
The problem is that it's impossible to tell exactly what ruins accuracy, not that the laboratory tests have disproved the practice.
>>>Pat Price's experiment:
He was asked do describe a Russian military base. He failed to describe the perimeter of the base, as well as numerous "other facts" not cited in the
article (2nd source). However he did make a very specific and startling accurate description.
"He said that he could see a mobile gantry crane built on a huge scale -- its wheels taller than a man. The crane he said was 150 feet tall and its
railed tracks 50 feet apart."
This was amazing, but the analyst was still far too skeptical to accept the results. Russell Targ defends his colleague, on the other hand, suggesting
that it illustrates the practicality of RVing.
