In 1998, I was having a conversation about mind control with some friends of mine at a local McDonald’s and it was overheard by a gentleman who looked as if he was a transient.

He mumbled through some conversation about how he was on his way to Texas and that he needed some money. He told me that if I paid him a bus ticket he would tell me about how the Canadian government had taken him as a child and trained him with the CIA to become an assassin. He claimed, however, that it wasn’t a typical assassination.

He claimed that the weapon used would be the mind.

He told me that through the use of mind control and things like remote viewing, a man could kill another man. He wanted to tell me about some things that were done in Iran and he claimed that he was under orders from both the Canadian government and the US government.

He also told me that he was involved in some sort of mind control experiment in Montreal in the 1950s and that after he had tried to reveal the activities he ended up destitute and traveled all over the country by train, or hitchhiking.

After checking around and asking several questions of people I knew in Canada, I can only remember that his name did not check out and that perhaps I had been hoaxed.

I was later made aware of a lawsuit that was filed by a man named Robert Logie. He claimed that he was a “human guinea pig” for a CIA drug experiment program called “MK-ULTRA Sub-Project 68,” an experimental program where LSD was used for behavior control and brainwashing. Logie recounted that there was an agency called the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology and that it was a front for the CIA program. Logie would walk around in a daze and slept under bridges not knowing where he was or who he was.

The man I met was not Logie, but his story sounded similar.

MK-ULTRA and mind expansion programs used by the CIA and the Department of Defense were certainly thrown into the mix of black budget projects that were eventually used for psychic warfare.

Our world is drenched in secrecy with all sorts of black budget projects, and the United States government classifies up to five hundred million pages of documents every single year. Even when something is allowed to be published and released for public viewing, it remains a fairly safe assumption that much has still been withheld from public knowledge regarding these programs.

It’s also important to mention here that these are black budget programs — programs which have very little if any, oversight from Congress. Within these, we have Special Access programs, and from these, we have unacknowledged and waiver programs.

These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs. A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”

When former Senators like Harry Reed speak of programs to discover UFO’s – he is actually referring to Special Access programs that certainly are controversial. That is why the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find.

There are plenty of other controversial programs that I am sure are being carried out that are certainly considered paranormal in scope.

It is always a rare treat to find information that vindicates information that is long been considered conspiracy theory. As I have said many times before that timing is everything when it comes to imparting information and when a mainstream source divulges great leads I get excited and wish to share it with my audience.

A few days ago I was alerted to a Newsweek article that reported that during the Cold War, the Russian military had resorted to paranormal espionage during the cold war and that these PSI programs are continuing to this day.

An article in the official magazine of Russia’s Defense Ministry has claimed that the country’s military works in tandem with psychics, employs paranormal tactics to aid soldiers and has used dolphins in telepathy experiments.

A piece in the magazine Army Collection headlined “Super Soldier for the Wars of The Future” described how the military has conducted strange experiments, such as one in which psychics managed to read documents that were locked in a safe.

The article was first published in February but came to prominence this week after reports in the Russian magazine RBC, opposition newspaper Novaya Gazeta and the website, Meduza.

Commentators were surprised that such claims would be made in a publication sanctioned by authorities.

According to the article’s author Nikolai Poroskov, who served in campaigns in Chechnya and Sierra Leone, Soviet scientists developed paranormal techniques with the aim of the military being able to “extract information from a state of so-called altered human consciousness.”

He wrote how the method was even used during the campaigns in Chechnya “to reveal the enemy’s plan and the composition of the forces and means involved.”

He said that Russia has specialists that use telepathy to quiz prisoners, skills honed in experiments on dolphins.

“They mentally gave the animals the commands that they performed… It turned out that the technique also applied to humans,” he wrote.

The article stated that paranormal tactics have helped soldiers learn foreign languages, treat wounded troops, detect ambushes and even crash computers.

He said telepathic, non-verbal interrogation can help soldiers decide if enemy soldiers are receptive to recruitment. So-called “psychic countermeasures” also taught Special Forces, soldiers, how to hold up during enemy interrogation.

Anatoly Matviichuk, the head of the Analytics Department at the magazine Soldiers of Russia, told RBC that Soviet scientists did some work in these fields, especially between the 1960s and 1980s.

This is being called, “combat parapsychology.”

Combat parapsychology has its critics and it has sparked controversy as other scientists outside of the Russian military have denounced the practice as pseudoscience.

However much of the skepticism I believe is a bit “late for the party” as it has been known for decades that in an effort of obtaining full spectrum dominance both the United States and Russia were in the midst of a psychic arms race that dates as far back as World War II.

Full-spectrum dominance is a military entity’s achievement of control over all dimensions of the battlespace, effectively possessing an overwhelming diversity of resources in such areas as terrestrial, aerial, maritime, subterranean, extraterrestrial, psychological, and bio- or cyber-technological warfare.

Full-spectrum dominance includes the physical battlespace; air, surface and sub-surface as well as the electromagnetic spectrum and information space.

This philosophy not only controls the entire battlespace but also includes the possibility of psychological or psychic espionage or the ability to mentally subdue an enemy or use psychological means to outwit, locate and even kill an enemy through psychological warfare.

This leads us to the discussion of PSI spies, better known as “remote viewers,” or those who take part in extra-sensory spying and locating an enemy or the whereabouts of where the enemy is holed up — or where his weapons may be hidden.

U.S. Government interest in remote viewing dates back at least to World War II when captured documents revealed some fascinating German experiments in the application of the paranormal to military intelligence. But it wasn’t until the 1970s when the U.S. discovered that the Soviet Union was investing heavily in “psychic” research that U.S. Government interest really took off.

Activities channeling otherworldly beings were a widespread phenomenon in Europe following new developments in psychology outlined by revolutionaries such as Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Social interest in channeling, séance, parapsychology and automatic writing began in the Victorian era and continued after WWII.

John Dee was a well-known magician in the Victorian and Edwardian era who performed spells as a form of espionage. His spells were used to bring down the enemies of the British crown. He was known as a great mathematician and astrologer. He was well versed in ancient magic and Babylonian mystery school ritual. He was, in essence, a special agent.

John Dee was the original “007.” Dee signed his letters with two circles symbolizing his own two eyes and indicating that he was the secret eyes of the Queen. The two circles are guarded by what may be considered a square root sign or an elongated seven. For Dee, seven was a sacred cabalistic and lucky number.

So traditionally the magicians, the intelligence czars were the Illuminati “agents” that were aware of all of the rituals, spells, and psychology of the people.

These traditions were carried forward as personalities like Aleister Crowley later became an initiate. While he was considered the wickedest man for performing his divination and sex magic – much of what can be considered combat parapsychology and psionics were being used by common people.

Following the devastation of WWI, devout Christian and Catholic families indulged in private channeling of spirits of their departed loved ones. Fascist parties such as the Italian black shirts and the Nazi Party, who reunited nationalism with mysticism, further manifested these practices. Italian fascists and Nazis alike indulged in what, in today’s terms, would be perceived as ritualistic and heretic.

Nazis practiced many ritualistic activities, which ranged from mass initiations to baptizing their swastika flags, in the blood of fallen martyrs.

The connections between occult studies and the Nazi party extended beyond Hitler’s fondness of the Thule society and of Helena Blavatsky’s premonition that an “Aryan race” would emerge as the dominant people of a new age.

Germans sought mystical objects, looted art and attempted to rewrite their history into myth. For Italians and Germans, fascist culture sought to unite the future with the values and symbols of their ancient pasts.

Curiously, twentieth-century occultism often attracted a strong connection to technology.

For example, Italian fascists extended funding and patronage to an artistic group known as the Futurists. This entourage of extreme nationalistic poets and artists extolled death, machines, and war. Within their poetry and art, Futurists dreamed of a future where machine and man fused as one. Within the work of this collective we begin to see early concepts of cyborgs and Transhumanism.

During World War II it was well known that the Nazis conducted séances in order to gather information to use against the allies.

After the war, both the Soviet Union and the United States set out to master the abilities of what was called clairvoyance or remote viewing.

The term “remote viewing” was used by the United States military in defense-related research projects from the 1970s through much of the 1990s. Probably because of this, the term appears to have developed a permanent place in the public’s vocabulary of psychic phenomena.

However, remote viewing can mean different things to different people. It typically involves the ability of a person to perceive and describe something or place that is separate from him or her in space and/or time. Not surprisingly, because remote viewers were often called upon to describe and draw visual information, visual concepts often dominated the early discussions of this phenomenon.

Afraid of being left behind in a “psychic arms race,” the CIA funded a research proposal from two laser physicists at Stanford Research Institute (SRI). It was these two scientists Russell Targ and Harold Puthoff, who developed the first protocols and coined the term “remote viewing,” largely to get away from having to use words like paranormal, psychic, and clairvoyance, which tended to make the Government uncomfortable.

While SRI continued to train remote viewers for the Government, many of the day-to-day tasks and training took place at Fort Meade, where the Army maintained a well-documented RV unit until 1995/96. But many other branches of the military and the government — the Navy and Air Force, as well as NSA and NASA, invested in remote viewing. Their programs are less well known.

Remote viewing is frequently described as a “right brain” activity; the less interference there is from the more analytical portions of the brain, the better the results tend to be. Remote viewers typically sketch what they are “seeing,” since drawing a target frequently produces more accurate results than a verbal description.

It is also well known that anyone can be trained to remote view because the brain has many doors that can be open and shut upon training.

In the beginning, the apprentice starts seeing hazy or blurred targets and later with more concentration and hard work there have been many successful remote viewers who have used their talents to locate missing persons for police departments.

Scientific work on RV has been done by physicists. Quantum physics has undermined many of the old ideas about time and space, and new concepts like superstring theory and M-theories seem to offer clues into what may be going on during a remote viewing session. Theories like the idea that time is not linear, or that little-understood energy vibrates throughout the universe, connecting everything, like some external force spoken of in the Movie Star Wars. But at this point, it’s all still conjecture. There is much about the human mind, consciousness, and the true nature of reality that science has yet to explain. Remote viewing is one of those things.

The human mind can also be pushed to its limits and this is where psychological warfare and psychic espionage has been known to push the mind into hyper-reality and sensory overload.

It can be surmised that these remote viewing and heavy psi programs are still underway and that psychic spies are being used for all sorts of missions.

There are many people who see this and chuckle that the government is once again throwing money down the drain. However, keeping the master magicians and psychics near the government has been a common practice from the beginning.

The paradigm has thus been shattered and a new form of mental training can have the mind do many great and wondrous things that can be indistinguishable from magic.
