Remote viewing - Star Gate document - DIA - Grill Flame report Oct 1983

This Historic remote viewing document is:

Defense Intelligence Agency
Directorate for Scientific and Technical Intelligence
19 OCTOBER 1983

Produced for DIA in October 1983 as a report on the progress to date. It includes very interesting notes including details about the CRV training using the key SRI viewer at the time (Ingo Swann) as the baseline. This document shows that;
A. Ingo Swann was himself the primary CRV viewer and that he did use and train in CRV ( a fact that has been disputed in the past)
B. his accuracy after CRV training massively increased.

This document also shows examples of Ingo's CRV work both in practice and in operational remote viewing work with analysis of the data.

Key highlights from the document are:

This report summarizes results of the three-year GRILL FLAME project, which terminated at the close of FY 1983. -It contains key findings from the various project activities, and identifies potential follow-on efforts.

In addition to this DIA evaluation, the GRILL FLAME project also has been reviewed by an independent Scientific Evaluation Team that met in August and September of 1983. The scientific evaluation and recommendations will be forwarded separately"

Key findings of the GRILL FLAME project are: 
  • Remote viewing is a real phenomenon, and is not degraded by distance or shielding. 
  • Remote viewing ability can be improved by appropriate training procedures.   
  • Remote viewing has potential for US intelligence applicacations. However, at this stage of development, descriptive content (e.g., sketches, configurations) is more reliable than analytic content (e.g., function, complex technical data). 
  • A potential threat to US national security exists from foreign achievements in psychoenergetics. In the USSR and in China, this research is well funded and receives high-level government backing.
(S/NOFORN/DRCON) Achievements of the GRILL FLAME project include development of remote viewing training methods, the development of statistical Methods for evaluating remote viewing data, and the compilation of an extensive data base on foreign psychoe-nergetics research. Methods for improving the reliability of remote viewing data, through detailed understanding of the remote viewing process, and through identification of techniques for isolating valid from spurious data also were achieved. Training techniques that show promise for enhancing the reliability of the analytical content of remote 'viewing data also were identified."

"(S/NOFORN/ORCON) The accuracy of the descriptions was assessed on the basis of the accuracy rating scale shown in Table

1. Results indicate that viewer performance improved through training. Prior to training, only 22 percent of the viewer responses from 100 tests were in the good to excellent category. After training, 66 percent of the data from 95 tests were rated as good to excellent. A statistical analysis of the first four and the last four tests from the after-training series was also performed to see if data quality at the end of this series was better than data quality at the begining.

Using the concept analysis technique discused in the appendix II, the correct site was identified in three of these last four tests. A similar approach yielded one correct match (chance level) for the first four tests. This result, along with the over all 66 percent accuracy level, indicates that the training procedures were effective and that data quality improvements were achieved over time."

"c. Intelligence Potential
...The major emphasis of the GRILL FLAME project, however, was to develop a training method that would increase the accuracy of the remote viewing data and establish that it is a transferable skill. When this project was begun, Army INSCOM had already established an in-house unit and had been producing data on operational sites since 1979. The Army INSCOM viewers have detected the remote site successfully in 50 percent of their projects (89 sites)."

"...To determine whether progress in RV training carried over to operational tasking, the most advanced viewer at SRI was at various times'targeted on sites of operational significance throughout the program to find out if he could collect information of intelligence value. This viewer was given IS operational targets. Using the accuracy rating scale defined in Table I, intelligence analysts assigned ratings of good to excellent to approximately 40 percent of--the RV responses. The effect of the RV training procedures can be seen in the data from this series. The accuracy rating average for the last five targets was 2.2 on the three-point scale;;the average from the first five (before training) was 1.4.

A statistical analysis of the last five operational tests from this series also was performed. A person who did not know which set of RV data corresponded to the correct target was able to correctly match the data with the appropriate target site for all of these five tests. The probability of this result occurring by chance is less than one in a hundred. This statistical result provides additional support for the validity of RV under operational conditions."

"...Overall results between the SRI viewer and the INSCOM viewers were consistent (40 percent and 50 percent accuracy levels). These results clearly indicate that the RV phenomenon has intelligence application potential, especially where configurational aspects of RV data can be of value. However improvement in RV data reliability for both configurational and analytical content is still required before application of RV data to intelligence tasks can become routine.

...Keeping these faictors in mind, one nonetheless finds that data generated by remote viewers are often of high quality and, provided they are appropriately integrated into the intelligence data mix, can be of significant utility. Examples of successful remote viewings are given in appendix IV."

Remote viewing - Star Gate document - DIA - Science of Psychoenergetics 1984

The FOIA document of the week this week is a DIA report on Psychoenergetics circa 1984. It details lost of interesting things, some to the main points are:

For any field of knowledge to be considered a science, those involved in the field must adhere to some very rigorous guidelines. In the hierarchy of science, physics would be considered as the purest science; the other physical sciences would follow, then biology and medicine. Psychology and the other social sciences would follow these. Psychoenergetics has its place somewhere between psychology and the other social sciences. It has not been reduced to mathematics and there is no physical model, but psychoenergetics does have many characteristics that are common to all science.

The first of these characteristics is replication. If an area of endeavor is to be considered a science, experiments must be replicable. When the results obtained in one laboratory cannot be obtained under the same experimental conditions in other laboratories, the work will be neglected and will be considered to fall outside the parameters of science.

The work in psychoenergetics at SRI has been replicated by several laboratories:
          ~ Remote Viewing (ESP)
          - Princeton University, Princeton, NJ
          - Institute for Parapsychology, Durham, NC
          - Mundelein College, Chicago, IL
          - University of California at Davis, CA
          ~ Remote Action (psychokinesis)
          - Princeton University, Princeton, NJ
          - Mind Science Foundation, San Antonio, TX
          - Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY
          - Psychophysical Research Laboratory, Princeton, NJ
          - Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY
          - Bell Laboratories, Columbus, OH.

These are all bonafide scientific research and development institutes. In all, there have been 28 formal published replications of the remote viewing work at SRI. Obviously, this phenomenon is not an invention of SRI; it has been duplicated on a number of occasions.

Finally, the ongoing psychoenergetics program at SRI has recently been reviewed by a panel of renowned scientists (see Exhibit 9). Much of what they reported will be covered later in this publication. At this time, we wish to include one quote taken from the publication they prepared regarding their findings on the SRI psychoenergetic research; it bears directly on the question of whether or not psychoenergetics should be considered a science. "The lack of a physical model should not be taken to preclude the existence of the capability to view remote locations."

[page22] onwards:
The CIA was the first organization to fund research. Their program established that:
~ Geographical features can be ascertained with remote viewing.
~ Descriptive aspects of a site are better described than analytical aspects.
~ Operationally-useful information can be obtained.
~ Coordinate and beacon remote viewing can be successful.
~ Standard medical/physiological/psychologicaI screening is not useful.

In 1975, Navelex supported a $74K program which established that physiological correlates to remote viewing exist, but they are weak statistically. From 1976 to 1979, the Air Force supported research that demonstrated;
~ Remote viewing can be used to monitor real-time activities.
~ Accuracy and resolution are not a function of distance.
~ Spatial resolution is accurate down to millimeters.
~ Electrical shielding does not block remote viewing.

MIA was the next organization to enter the research. They supported work that verified that interaction with sensitive electronic equipment can result in significant perturbations from expected behavior.

In AMSAA's program, from 1978 to 1980, it was proven that site descriptions are of higher quality than location-pinpointing or tracking information.

The DIA was the next agency to contract work in psychoenergetics at SRI. Their program:
~ Developed techniques to increase reliability by minimizing noise
~ Produced operational examples that were of high quality
~ Developed a reliability improvement program.

In May of 1980, a proposal was made to consolidate the DoD effort into a joint service contract. The intent was -,to provide SRI with a single set of projects, enough money, and the time needed to advance the science to a point where it could be applied to solving intelligence problems. While this was not done in as grand a fashion as hoped, the funding did improve:  The total of the proposed three-year program was to develop the remote viewing phenomenon to a point where it could be used to collect intelligence. This goal was achieved. A summary of application-oriented skills developed at the present time is given in Appendix B, along with possible applications for the future.

As previously mentioned, the psychoenergetics research program at SRI International was examined by three eminent scientists in 1983. In their report, they assess the technology, and they identify elements that are necessary in any future program. The major points in their assessment are;
~ Implications are revolutionary
~ Merits continued funding in the national interest
~ National impact is profound
~ Evidence too impressive to dismiss
~ No evidence of dishonesty
~ Harassment must stop
~ Lack of physical model does not preclude existence.

It is clear that this panel of scientists considers psychoenergetics to be an enormously important field. Their recommended actions are
~ Confirm or deny existence of psi phenomena
~ Initiate a five-to-ten-year program
~ Involve additional labs
~ Continue training program.

The panel advocates a five to ten year program using multiple laboratories.
A report has already been prepared that describes a long-term program and integrates R&D and intelligence into a single unified DoD program.

[page 55]
The "possible" category encompasses those applications for which underlying psi phenomena have been established scientifically, but which have yet to be implemented operationally. As stated above, CRV has been verified in the laboratory, but it has yet to be applied, for example, to such camouflage, concealment, and deception (CC&D) tasks as detecting which USSR silos have operative missiles and which are empty.

Remote viewing - the origin of the asteroid belt

Remote viewing the origin of the asteroid belt is a new public remote viewing project form The Farsight Institute. One of many we have experimented with for the last three years. I participated as a remote viewer in this project submitting five  BLIND ( I had no information what-so-ever about the target upfront) remote viewing sessions. The results are, well explosive!

Project Overview:
Ever wonder how the asteroid belt formed? The prevailing theory says that it is essentially a planet that never formed out of the original primeval solar nebula of gas and dust. However, there are huge problems with this theory. For example, the asteroids are large rocks that arguably needed a significant gravity source in order to form in the first place. The late astronomer Tom Van Flandern, who led the Celestial Mechanics Branch of the Nautical Almanac Office at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. from 1963 to 1983, developed an alternate theory explaining the origin of the asteroid belt which he described in detail in his book: Dark Matter, Missing Planets, & New Comets. His idea is that a planet once existed in that location in our solar system, and it exploded. We call this the "exploding planet hypothesis." This theory has been widely ridiculed in mainstream astronomical circles, mainly because of resistance by mainstream astronomers to the idea that planets could explode in the first place. We decided to use remote viewing to take a look and see what actually happened. Look at the data yourself, and then you decide.

The project setup:
There are three remote-viewing targets for this study. The first target is the asteroid "433 Eros" (a siliceous or S-type asteroid) at the moment of its creation. The second target is the asteroid "253 Mathilde" (a carbonaceous or C-type asteroid) at the moment of its creation. The final target involves Iapetus, the icy moon of Saturn. Iapetus has a dark "splat" on one side, and Tom Van Flandern hypothesized that this splat was the result of an impact with a huge debris wave that ran throughout the solar system when the planet exploded that created the asteroid belt. Thus, the final target involves the origin of the dark splat on Iapetus.

Missing persons, Remote viewing and Mitrice Richardson

Missing persons, Remote viewing and Mitrice Richardson

Yesterday (Friday 20th) it was confirmed that the human remains found in a Malibu hills ravine were those of long time missing student Mitrice Richardson. Mitrice, is a case I had been following since November 2009 when as part of the FINDME group, I had consulted with my intuitive skills on the disappearance of the then missing person.

With some of the cases that come through my hands, you can't but help to feel in some way connected to them as you as an intuitive consultant try to experience what they experienced and as you try to describe their current location for the authorities.

My heart goes out to her family and I now hope that they can find some measure of closure as they try to deal with this loss in their lives.

It was only a week ago that I was emailing back and forth with my project manager about this case after latest news broke of a sighting of Mitrice in Las Vegas that the police were following-up as a credible lead, to which I responded 'sorry but they are wrong - my data shows she's dead and in a ravine in the Malibu hills'. Now we have the sad confirmation to that fact.

Enclosed is my intuitive data for this project. I use a technique called Controlled Remote viewing. This means that I did this project BLIND. I had no information what-so-ever on the identity or location of the missing person. All I had was a random number to focus upon and the knowledge that SOMEONE was missing.

Here is the latest news:

Los Angeles (CBS/AP)
"The skull and bones found near an abandoned marijuana grove in the Santa Monica Mountains near Malibu are the remains of 25-year-old Mitrice Richardson, according to officials."

NBC news: On Monday afternoon, a crime scene was cordoned off along Dark Canyon Road off Piuma Road. The bones were discovered in dense chaparral in a ravine. California State Park Rangers discovered the bones during a marijuana eradication effort around 1:30 p.m.

Fox News: Malibu - Skeletal remains found Monday in a Malibu ravine were identified today as those of a Los Angeles woman who went missing last September after being released from the sheriff's Malibu-Lost Hills Station. The skull and bones were discovered about 1 p.m. Monday, when state park rangers were searching an abandoned marijuana patch in the unincorporated Monte Nido area. The remains were found "a couple of miles" away from the sheriff's station from which Richardson was released, Baca said.

My session summary: (please view the pdf to see it in full with sketches)

The primary life is:
A student
Was distressed Now Dead Feel accidental – no-one else involved

The location is:

In water or water was involved/near.

The location flows downwards in a jagged direction/flow
Above the area is a hill/mountain. Natural with trees, each side of the water.
The water has raised areas where it meets the land, the water feels lower.

This feels stony, maybe even boulders.

There are structures.

Some structures are to the side of the location (400yrds)

There is also a two lane road that is at times by the side of the water/flowing area.

At one point there is a manmade interruption of the water, this moves the water downwards very fast – some kind of man made overflow/control area.
Up from the location of the body is a bridge or road that crosses the water/area.

The missing person is:

Dead - Feels maybe of exposure/water Feels crumpled, disjointed and caught-up or snagged This feels like a small tributary, hard corner or space.
Feel squeezed, bunched-up, exposed to water and air.

you will see from my remote viewing session that I BLINDLY described the case and a location that fits very well with the now known location of the remains. As with all remoet viewing there may be a little 'noise' in the Rv session. In this case possible the 'water' component. Until we get more information on the exact location this is hard to fully determine. regarding the rest of my data including the sketches - it looks pretty good. You will also note that although remote viewing and intuitive consultancy can possibly help in cases like this, its not infallible and not perfect by any means.

Yes I did accurately describe Mitrice as being deceased and located in a ravine a few miles from the police station, but in a location with many such ravines all looking similar, how much this helped I don't know. I do wish we could all help more.

I'm sure you will agree that the skill is useful but its not the be all and end all. Its a work in progress. We constantly try to expand and learn form what we do and how we try to help. If you too feel you can help with intuitive consultancy then please contact the FINDME group for further details.
We and the missing people could always do with more help.

Remote Viewing customer evaluations - NSA briefing doc 1981

One of the biggest sceptical arguments against the validity of remote viewing is, if it works then why did the military say it wasn't useful for intel and operations and they closed the projects?'

Well the clear answer is - it did work and contrary to any claims there is also proof of this. This document shows a small sample of client comments on operational intel use of remote viewing.

I passed a-round selected samples of GRILL FLAME evaluations that we have received from consumers.(See our TOP SECRET eval file.)

I stressed that our effort was not research and development, but strictly operational in nature.

5. (U) I would say that the committee received the presentation.with an "open mind" attitude. Their questions and keen interest demonstrated that they were trying to search out the answers to a very puzzling,problem.



ITAC: There were a few.spectacular reports ... the project confirmed with uncanny accuracy the presence of a recently constructed major ditch array and the number and type of elite units in a remote garrison area.

CIA: In sum~ou:rexperience with GF, thus far, tends to strengthen the validity of the techniques involved and also indicates that its greatest utility as an operational tool may be in the CI field.

JCS: In 16 out of 18 cases GF sources described the facility in sufficient detail to allow positive identification.

ITAC: I would also like to compliment you and your personnel on achieving an intelligence community "First."


JCS: Therefore, it is the judgement of this analyst that extensive testing and development of control procedures be accomplished before any final assessment of the value of GF material can be made.

CIA documents - week1: SRI: CRV training Dec 1984

Over the years I have seen many claims that there is no evidence for both remote viewing under the umbrella of psychic functioning. Within the field of study of remote viewing we even see some of the peers claim that there were no scientific examples showing that the method of choice (CRV) was proved to work. So to counter these arguments I will, once a week add a new document from the CIA Star Gat - Remote viewing FOIA archives and their 20 year study and development program of remote viewing.

The first is:


Prepared for:

December 1984

A. General
As part of an overall training R&D Task, SRI International has investigated a number of potential training procedures. One of these, which is the focus of this particular study, involves multistage, coordinate remote viewing. In this procedure,* coordinates (latitude and longitude in degrees, minutes, and seconds) are utilized as the targeting method, which is structured to proceed through a series of well-defined stages in a particular order--hypothesized to correspond to stages of increased contact with the target site.

(S/NF) In this study, the basic hypotheses of the procedure were investigated under strict double-blind testing conditions in order to document whether, and to what degree, the hypothesized training approach provided a viable vehicle for RV technology transfer. The DIA COTR in residence selected three individuals from the staff of the SRI Radio Physics Laboratory. He tested them for baseline RV performance levels over an initial series of five sessions each, and then turned them over to the SRI Psychoenergetics Program staff to be exposed to the theory and application of the procedure in question.

B. (U) Observations and Conclusions
Analysis of the data results in plots of a quantity called Figure of Merit (FM), which is a combined measure of the reliability of RVer statements, and the accuracy and completeness of target description. Based on the earlier development work on the training procedure under study, a particular performance curve was anticipated:

A baseline region of relatively poor performance.An unstable region of anomalously-high "first-time effect" immediately following initial instruction. A region of slowly-increasing stable growth to levels above baseline performance.

For all three RVers, the evolution of the distribution of data points over time, aligns with the predicted performance curve, and several measures of the correlation reach statistical significance; thus, the data-point distribution appears not to be random, but patterned as anticipated. With regard to overall performance, one of the three RVers generated independently statistically significant results, with regard to
(1) the (positive) slope of the learning curve, and
(2) the increase in mean performance level achieved in training (as compared with baseline).

It thus appears that the data generated in this study, collected under rigorous double-blind conditions and analyzed by objective computer-automated procedures, provide support for the Track I Training model developed in earlier efforts. All remote viewers showed an increase in performance over baseline level, exhibiting growth in conformation with a predicted performance curve--one significantly so.
