An excerpt from "Perceptual Augmentation
Techniques, Part One--Executive Summary" by Harold Puthoff and Russell
Targ, SRI Project 3183, Final Report, Covering the Period January 1974
through February 1975. RECENTLY DECLASSIFIED BY THE CIA.
"The goal of this program was to determine the
extent to which certain individuals obtain accurate information about
their environment under conditions thought to be secure against such
access and without the use of known human perceptual modalities...
"As a result of exploratory research on human
perception carried out in SRI's Electronics and Bioengineering
Laboratory, we observed the emergence of a perceptual channel whereby
certain individuals access and describe, by means of mental imagery,
randomly-chosen remote sites located several miles or more away. In
this final report, we document the study at SRI of this human
information-accessing capability which we call 'remote viewing'..."
"Perturbation of Remote Equipment"
"Additional experimentation was initiated to
investigate the possibility that the remote sensing channel may possess
bilateral aspects; for example, it might be possible to couple energy
from an individual to a remote location as well as in reverse. To test
this hypothesis, experiments were carried out with a sensitive
magnetometer in an adjoining laboratory as the remote target. Use of an
ORD-developed magnetometer was arranged by ORD personnel. In a series
of thirteen 10-trial runs with 50 seconds per trial, perturbations of
the magnetometer by a subject gifted in remote viewing were obtained
under strict randomization protocol, yielding a positive result
significant at the p=0.004 level. Because of the potential significance
and implications of such findings, we intend to collect considerable
additional data before arriving at a a hard conclusion. Nonetheless, as
a tentative conclusion there is evidence that a piece of sensitive
equipment can be perturbed by a subject during remote viewing, thus
implying that the information channel under investigation may sustain
energy transfer in either direction."
