THE FOLLOWING REPORT DETAILS ACTUAL GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT
IN THE USE OF MILITARY PERSONNEL FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE THE CONSTANTINE REPORT No. 1 "Remote Viewing" at Stanford Research Institute or Illicit CIA Mind Control
Experimentation? Alex Constantine is the author of Psychic Dictatorship in the U.S.A.
(Feral House, 1995), an exploration of electromagnetic mind control, cults
formed by the CIA, collaboration with old guard Nazis, media disinformation and
other outrageous acts of federal malfeasance.
The Constantine Report originated on KAZU-FM as a regular feature on the Lighthouse Report.
His contributions to the Lighthouse Report were first broadcast in 1989.
He has written for Z Magazine, Hustler, Prevailing Winds, Coast Weekly and
MindNet, among other publications. The following selection is from
Virtual Government: CIA Mind Control Operations in America, (1997).
Concrete evidence that electronic mind control was the true object of study at
SRI was exposed by the Washington Post in 1977. When the Navy awarded a
contract to the Institute, "the scientific assistant to the Secretary of the Navy,
Dr. Sam Koslov, received a routine briefing on various research projects, including SRI's.
As the briefer flashed his chart onto the screen and began to speak, Koslov stormily interrupted,
"What the hell is that about?" Among the glowing words on the projected chart, the section describing
SRI's work was labeled "ELF and Mind Control."
ELF stands for extremely long frequency electromagnetic waves, from the very
slow brain frequencies up to about 100 cycles per second. But the
Mind Control label really upset Koslov. He ordered the SRI investigations
for the Navy stopped, and canceled another $35,000 in Navy funds slated
for more remote viewing work. Contrary to Koslov's attempt to kill the
research, the Navy quietly continued to fork out $100,000 for a two-year
project directed by a bionics specialist. The "remote viewing" team at SRI was, in fact, engaged in projecting words and
images directly to the cranium. It is not a humanitarian pastime: the project
was military and test subjects are often subjected to a lifetime of EM torture
plied with the same thorough disregard for human rights as the radiation tests
conducted at the height of the Cold War. To be sure, the treatment subjects
have received at the hands of their own government would be considered
atrocities if practiced in wartime. Mind control was also used in domestic covert operations designed to further
the CIA's heady ambitions, and during the Vietnam War period SRI was a hive
of covert political subterfuge. The Symbionese Liberation Army, like the People's Temple,
was a creation of the CIA. The SLA had at its core a clique of black ex-convicts from Vacaville Prison.
Donald DeFreeze, otherwise known as "Cinque," led the SLA. He was formerly an informant for the
LAPD's Criminal Conspiracy Section and the director of Vacaville's Black Cultural Association (BCA),
a covert mind control unit with funding from the CIA channeled through SRI.
The Menlo Park behavior modification specialists experimented with psychoactive
drugs administered to members of the BCA. Black prisoners were
programmed to murder selected black leaders once on the outside.
The CIA/SRI zombie killer hit list included Oakland school superintendent
Dr. Marcus Foster, and Panthers Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, among others.
DeFreeze stated that at Vacaville in 1971-72 he was the subject of a CIA mind control experiment.
He described his incarceration on the prison's third floor, where he was corralled by CIA agents
who drugged him and said he would become the leader of a radical movement and kidnap a wealthy person.
After his escape from Vacaville (an exit door was left unlocked for him), that's exactly what he did.
EM mind control machines were championed at SRI by Dr. Karl Pribram, director
of the Neurophychology Research Laboratory: "I certainly could educate a child
by putting an electrode in the lateral hypothalmus and then selecting the situations at which I stimulate it.
In this was I can grossly change his behavior." Psychology Today touted Pribram as "The Magellan of Brain Science."
He obtained his B.S. and M.D. degrees at the University of Chicago,
and at SRI studied how the brain processes and stores sensory imagery.
He is credited with discovering that mental imaging bears a close resemblance to hologram projection
(the basis for transmitting images to the brains of test subjects under the misnomer "remote viewing"?).
The SRI/SAIC psi experiments were supervised at Langley by John McMahon, second
in command under William Casey, succeeding Bobby Ray Inman, the SAIC director.
McMahon has, according to Philip Agee, the CIA whistle-blowing exile,
an affinity for "technological exotics for CIA covert actions."
He was recruited by the Agency after his graduation from Holy Cross College. He is a former director
of the Technical Services Division, deputy director for Operations,
and in 1982 McMahon was appointed deputy director of Central Intelligence.
He left the Agency six years later to take the position of president of the
Lockheed Missiles and Space Systems Group.
In 1994 he moved on to Draper Laboratories. He is a director of the Defense Enterprise Fund
and an adviser to congressional committees.
Many of the SRI "empaths" were mustered from L. Ron Hubbard's Church of
Scientology, Harold Puthoff, the Institute's senior researcher, is a leading
Scientologist. Two "remote viewers" from SRI have also held rank in the Church:
Ingo Swann, a Class VII Operating Thetan, a founder of the Scientology Center in Los Angeles,
and the late Pat Price. Puthoff and Targ's lab assistant was a Scientologist married to a
minister of the church. When Swann joined SRI,
he stated openly that fourteen "Clears" participated in the experiments, "more than I would suspect."
At the time he denied CIA involvement, but now acknowledges,
"it was rather common knowledge all along who the sponsor was, although in documents
the identity of the Agency was concealed behind the
sobriquet of 'an east-coast scientist.' The Agency's interest was quite extensive.
A number of agents of the CIA came themselves ultimately to SRI
to act as subjects in remote viewing experiments,
as did some members of Congress."
The intelligence groups were reportedly so taken with the SRI experiments that
funding swelled. Millions of dollars were thrown at "Grill Flame" under (DIA)
and Navy auspices. The projects at SRI were augmented by a parapsychology team
at Fort Meade in Maryland under INSCOM and the NSA. Military intelligence personnel
were recruited, including Major Ed Dames, the Psi-Tech founder.
General Stubblebine ran the project and broadened it to include tarot and the channeling of "spirits."
By this time, Puthoff and Swann left the Church of Scientology to join
a spin-off religious movement. The DIA inherited "Grill Flame."
A reporter for the BBC (requesting anonymity) offered a glimpse of the Army's
remote viewing project at Fort Meade, declares he was given "The Official Line
(ie we were about to be used for disinformation). As soon as I started asking hard questions,
the project was taken away from us and [given] to a far more docile broadcaster."
The British correspondent learned on the tour that medical oversight for the
psi experiments was provided by Dr. Louis Jolyon West,then a professor of psychiatry at UCLA,
one of the most notorious CIA mind control specialists in the country.
Apart from monitoring the health of the subjects, according to SRI spokesmen,
Dr. West conducted his own experimental studies of the "phenomenology of dissociative states,"
or multiple personalities, at the Institute. Dr. Colin Ross,
a specialist in dissociative disorders, offers that Dr. West's work for the CIA
centered on the biology or personality of dissociative states. Many victims of the CIA-
anchored experimentation have been left with multiple personalities induced at a young age,
and it is certain that the CIA can trigger induced multiple personalities
electronically from a remote source to commit any act on cue
ñ the ultimate Manchurian Candidate.
Under Dr. West's tutelage at UCLA, "parapsychology" experiments of another sort
were conducted by Kirlian aura researcher Thelma Moss, a writer for television
and a human guinea-pig herself in LSD experiments conducted in 1957. Three
years later, as a UCLA psychology student, she designed protocols for her own
LSD experiments under the supervision of Dr. Oscar Janiger. The CIA, of course, could not be far away. Dr. Janiger's supplier of the drug
was the legendary Captain Al Hubbard, the "Johnny Appleseed of LSD." "Nothing
of substance has been written about Al Hubbard," Janiger once said, "and
probably nothing ever should." Hubbard, a convicted rum-runner, had a knack for
electronic communications. He was recruited by the OSS by agents of Allen Dulles
and surely reported to the CIA thereafter. Hubbard, an arch-conservative,
joined SRI at the urging of Willis Harman, director of the Institute's
Educational Policy Research Center, ostensibly as a "security guard." Harman, an LSD
experimenter himself, admits, "Al never did anything resembling security work."
Hubbard was employed on the Alternative Futures Project, a corporate
"Al had a grandiose idea," one co-worker recalls, "that if he could give the
psychedelic experience to the major executives of the Fortune 500 companies,
he could change the whole of society." Hubbard was a major supplier to
universities sponsoring experimentation, and flooded the youth subculture he despised
with LSD in the 1960s. The massive drug-dealing operation ñ at least
as large as the government's ñ had Harmon's unreserved support.
Al Hubbard's contract at SRI was canceled in 1974.
Among the labs closed in 1966 with the criminalization of LSD was Dr.
Janiger's. His protege, Thelma Moss, continued to pursue experimentation with
the hallucinogen as a psychotherapeutic tool, and later as an ESP trigger. Her
increasingly bizarre interests led her to Kirlian photography, and she set up a
lab at the Neuropsychiatric Institute under Dr. West.
At least one volunteer in Moss's experiments alleges to have been led down a
blind alley to lifelong torture. D.S. (requesting anonymity) appeared on Moss's
doorstep in 1978. After the experiments, she was whelmed by "back-to-back
psychic experiences" ñ not true ones, she realized, but precognitive
dreams "that had to be fed to me." (Biotelemetric subjects routinely complain
that their dreams are commandeered.) For 15 years she walked through a barrage
of novelty effects. The "psychic" episodes gradually gave way to torture,
including head pains and endless hours of "persuasive coercion," the art of
psychological paralysis honed by the CIA in the prison system. In 1994 she
began to receive non-stop audio transmissions that still torment her,
cybernetic "voices" registering on her brain's "primary frequency allocation,"
her mental "channel."
Another tip-off that biotechnology, cyber-psi, was focal in Stargate research
was the Agency's choice of The American Institutes of Research (AIR) in
Washington, D.C. to evaluate the validity of "remote viewing." AIR could be
counted on to keep the secrets. In the 1970s, the Army's Office of the
Inspector General released declassified files disclosing a series of CIA-DoD
behavior modification experiments conducted in prisons, mental hospitals and
campuses from 1950 through 1971. The documents identified 44 laboratories
enriched with public tax funds for secret, inhumane brain research. The first
on the list was AIR. SRI also received funding. An in-house "study" ensured CIA
personnel would not be dragged in from the "cold."
Some of the aims of the research:
Inducing toxic psychosis, terminal cancer, stress, sleep, headaches and
Developing foods that taste normal but stimulate fear and anxiety.
The concoction of drugs to facilitate the brainwashing of civilians.
Using LSD-25 and electrodes in the brain to pinpoint pain centers.
A number of SRI spinoffs have taken "remote viewing" into the private sector. A
brochure for the Farsight Institute states flatly that technology is used, and
promotes the "alien" diversion: "The Farsight Institute (TFI) was founded by
Courtney Brown, Ph.D., in 1995, evolving from a research program that he
conducted in the early 1990s, described in his book Cosmic Voyage: A
Discovery of Extraterrestrials Visiting Earth (Dutton 1996). Dr. Brown's
investigations began with his training in a remote viewing technology that had
previously been used by the U.S. military during highly classified operations
in the 1980s and '90s.
"Historically, the principal breakthroughs with this technology were made at
Stanford Research Institute in the 1970s and 1980s by the gifted artist and
natural psychic, Ingo Swann. The vision of The Farsight Institute is to promote
the continued research most modern and effective forms of this continually
Other "remote viewing" gurus from the SRI program have sprung up like poison
mushrooms around the country, ranting about the paranormal,
scapegoating "aliens." The rhetoric is a serious development in mind control ñ
cult programming for mass consumption. The populace is now subjected to the
same crazed systems used to indoctrinate recruits of the mind control cults.
Psi-Tech founder Ed Dames claimed on Art Bell's syndicated radio program that
his company can comb the "collective uncounscious" for answers to such
mysteries as the origins of the AIDS virus. By scanning the "Global Mind,"
Dames claims, "we perceived massive global weather changes that preclude
growing crops, a tremendous problem with epidemics and pandemics in Third World
countries because it appears the ozone problem is increasing the mutation rate.
We're perceiving a bovine AIDS that kills a lot of babies." The future "get
grimmer after that."
Parapsychology, E.T.s and the Apocalypse are not just for the tabloids anymore –
the intelligence community wants the you to believe ... believe ...
Is that an ALIEN implant? Or one paid for with your own tax dollars?
Go herelearn about a much more
sinister series of programs that you government has enacted...yet another
gaping hole in the GREAT UFO DIVERSION...that your benevolent government
doesn't want you to see past. YOUR MIND IS BEING PUT TO SLEEP!!!!!
