It’s not April Fools Day anymore, and the story I’m about to tell happened at a different time of year. But it is April for the next several days, so it’s still the best month to renew the tale of how a remote viewing prank… Read more
Have you wondered what it would be like to have just a touch of omniscience–a small (or even a bit more) psychic gift or talent to give you a little edge in life? Odds are that if you have, you may have also assumed it… Read more
(Featured photo: Detail from cover of Journeys out of the Body, by Robert A. Monroe.) Every so often I am asked: “Have you ever had an out-of-body experience?” That is one of those $64-billion-dollar questions (they used to be $64 thousand, but, like the deficit,… Read more
We don’t normally connect romance to extrasensory perception (ESP). Yet a book I read not long ago does exactly that. Since it is Valentine’s Day, I want to introduce you to Sally Rhine Feather’s engrossing book The Gift: The Extraordinary Experiences of Ordinary People, and… Read more
(Featured image: Rob Cowart, Joe McMoneagle, and Tom McNear at a costume party in the early 1980s. Photo courtesy of Tom McNear.) “Structure! Content be damned.” Remote viewing has relatively few quotable moments—after all, what is there to say when what matters is actually putting… Read more
Three years ago today, the creator of remote viewing, Ingo Swann, moved beyond his mortal body and, as will all of us in the end, entered an eternal world of infinite possibility. To commemorate that sad but affirming transition, I am celebrating Ingo’s life today… Read more
I received an interesting phone call one day last fall (September 28, 2015 to be exact). It was from my medically-retired Marine friend, whom I will call simply “Dru,” as he is protective of his privacy—to the extent of pulling down his Facebook page a… Read more
I rarely argued with my mentor, Ingo Swann. When I did, it was sometimes unpleasant, but more often it was educational—even on the few occasions when in the end we still disagreed. A mild one of those arguments happened over the phone in April 2002,… Read more
I promote a radical idea: That we humans are more than a mere collection of physical parts and processes. Why is that radical, you wonder? Since people first became able to think, haven’t most of us, really, deep down inside believed that human nature was partly physical, yet partly “something else”?
From the days of the early Greeks, and perhaps before, there have always been materialists around—people who thought that nothing existed that wasn’t in some way physical. But since the 1950s or 1960s the certitude has grown that human beings are just complicated pieces of biological machinery—essentially “machines made of meat.” It has become the fashion, especially in science, to reject the idea that there can be anything to humans beyond what can be measured or explained in physical terms. Such thinking leads to an unavoidable conclusion—there is nothing in human nature that is spiritual, or non-physical, or psychic in the ESP sense of the word.
From my own studies and experiences, I know this modern “scientific” belief is mistaken—is its own sort of fantasy. I have discovered for myself that humans are “more than their physical bodies” (as consciousness pioneer Robert A. Monroe aptly and often put it).
This blog documents my own experiences, thoughts, and ideas from more than three decades as a military psychic spy, philosopher, and student of human perception and consciousness. Its main theme will be remote viewing and remote perception, but as I add entries you will also find posts ranging into broader areas of consciousness, intuition, non-local knowing, and perception as well. Grab a hold—the ride starts now….
