The CIA, Remote Viewing & Extraterrestrials


by Arjun Walia, The Pulse:

A common theme among CIA & Stanford Research Institute remote viewers was and is the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials.

Remote viewing is the ability of someone to describe the characteristics of a remote geographical location regardless their present location.

For example, a professionally trained remote viewer by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and academics at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), where this type of activity took place for more than 25 years, would successfully and repeatedly be able to describe in-depth details of a distant location.


The viewer would only be given geographical coordinates and would be blind to all other aspects of the location. It worked, it was repeatable, and the distance to the target did not matter even if it wasn’t on planet Earth.

Concerned that a psychical (PSI) gap existed between U.S. and Soviet paranormal research efforts, the CIA sponsored discreet research into paranormal phenomena. The U.S. military and intelligence services were actively involved in paranormal research and operations involving remote viewing. Remote viewing, which produced specialized human intelligence support, served as part of overall military and government organizations’ intelligence collection efforts and most likely still does.

For example, in March 1979, a young Air Force enlisted woman named Rosemary Smith was handed a map of the entire continent of Africa. She was told only that sometime in the past few days a Soviet Tu-22 bomber outfitted as a spy plane had crashed somewhere on the continent.

The United States desperately wanted to recover the top secret Russian codes and equipment the Tu-22 carried. Using their remote viewing skills, she pinpointed the wreckage, even though it had been completely swallowed by the jungle canopy into which the jet had plunged nose first.

Dr. Hal Puthoff, one of the directors and co-founders of the program explained in a publication put out by the Journal of Scientific Exploration in 1995,

“To summarize, over the years, the back-and-forth criticism of protocols, refinement of methods, and successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the (remote viewing) phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was the discovery that a growing number of individuals could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their own surprise…The development of this capability at SRI has evolved to the point where visiting CIA personnel with no previous exposure to such concepts have performed well under controlled laboratory conditions.”

A subject sometimes ridiculed by material scientists, it seems remote viewing is not only taken very seriously by government and military but is well documented and rigorously tested.

Saturns Rings

Prior to the flyby of Jupiter by Pioneer 10, a spacecraft launched into space in 1972 and the first to fly directly through the asteroid belt and make observations of Jupiter, a gentleman by the name of Ingo Swann was able to successfully describe and view a ring around Jupiter which scientists had no idea existed.

This took place precisely before the first-ever flyby of Jupiter by NASA’s Pioneer 10 spacecraft, which confirmed that the ring did actually exist.

Puthoff explains,

“To determine whether it was necessary to have a ‘beacon’ individual at the target site, Swann suggested carrying out an experiment to remote view the planet Jupiter before the upcoming NASA Pioneer 10 flyby. In that case, much to his chagrin (and ours) he found a ring around Jupiter, and wondered if per- haps he had remote viewed Saturn by mistake. Our colleagues in astronomy were quite unimpressed as well, until the flyby revealed that an unanticipated ring did in fact exist.”

Dr. Jessica Utts, a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Irvine further emphasizes the point I’m trying to make during an interview on the show Talking Points. She illustrates that these techniques are real and carry a great deal of validity and credibility,

“What convinced me was just the evidence, the accumulating evidence as I worked in this field and I got to see more and more of the evidence. I visited the laboratories, even beyond where I was working to see what they were doing and I could see that they had really tight controls… and so I got convinced by the good science that I saw being done. And in fact I will say as a statistician I’ve consulted in a lot of different areas of science; the methodology and the controls on these experiments are much tighter than any other area of science where I’ve worked.”


Extraterrestrials: A Common Theme Among Professional Remote Viewers

Despite the fact that the remote viewing program was officially declassified in 1995, it appears that this probably wasn’t true given the fact that many from within the program have ‘blown the whistle’ so to speak.

A common theme among some of the most successful viewers within the program is the idea that they were tasked with gathering information on ‘others’ that may have been and are visiting our planet.

Ingo Swann (mentioned above), who has often been described as the best in the business, published his experiences within the intelligence community. Some of these experiences were written about in his book Penetration.

One day, this man (Axelrod) entered the secured facility at Stanford, which was not an easy thing to do. He obviously had access and the security clearance to do so. You have to remember, at the time this was happening it was a very classified and sensitive U.S. government project. He found Swann and persuaded him to leave with him.

Axelrod was accompanied by two twins who were very tall and mysterious. They dressed in the typical ‘cloak and dagger’ intelligence agency outfit. This is not uncommon, “men in black” type figures have often been described in this manner, and twins are not unusual.

Swann described them as “two blond haired, blue eyed, military looking assistants.”

The four of them flew to the west coast where Swann believed it to be the Alaskan wilderness, although he wasn’t certain and was told that it was best he did not know.

They were flying in a Learjet and found an area deep in the forest which seemed to be for their own use. They trekked for a very long time.
