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….
Ever since remote viewing became a “thing” (and I’m talking 1971, not just 1995 or even 2020!) folks have wanted to kick the tires and take it out for a test drive. But that brings problems with it. Here is one.
It seems like almost every other day or so I hear complaints that “no one is putting examples of real remote viewing sessions up on the Internet for all to see.” I don’t take this too seriously, because there are lots of examples available on… Read more
What’s the difference between CRV, ERV, ARV, TRV, SRV (and that’s just the start), they want to know? That’s what new people entering the remote viewing world often think when faced with the many “kinds” of remote viewing they see there.
(Above: Stephen Hawking experiencing a zero-G environment in 2007. NASA Photo) Often, the presence of death turns us to questions. Almost as if on their own, our minds grab for answers we hope will lead us to understand. We each phrase the questions in our… Read more
Paul H. Smith recently spent two weeks in southern California training Russians in the art and skill of controlled remote viewing. This is his report, along with some interesting results.
If you’ve seen the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (sometimes abbreviated by fans as “CEIII”) then you’ve seen Richard Dreyfuss building a model of Wyoming’s Devil’s Tower out of mashed potatoes on the dining room table. That iconic scene became a running joke… Read more

It happens to me all the time. I will be sitting in an airport, or waiting in a doctor’s office, or wherever, and will strike up a conversation with someone next to me. At some point I’ll be asked, “What do you do for work?”… Read more
It was all started by the improbable partnership of a psychic and a scientist 45 years ago today. June 6, 1972 was when artist/psychic Ingo Swann accompanied physicist Harold E. “Hal” Puthoff into the Varian Physics Building on the campus of Stanford University. Their goal… Read more
Have you or someone you know ever had a thought that seemed to be a premonition or foreboding of some disaster about to occur? If so, have you (or they) wondered anxiously what you should do about it, whom you should tell? Recently, I received… Read more
