According to many sources, near the end of the 1960's
U.S. intelligence operatives reported that the Soviets
were heavily involved in paranormal research. The Soviet
spies had apparently been experimenting with psychic
espionage for some time. Around 1969, U.S. intelligence
communities began funding paranormal research programs.
These programs were geared toward learning more about
remote viewing and implement it in an
There was real concern that the Soviets knew
something we did not. The Soviet intelligence community
was spending significant amounts of money on paranormal
programs and had been for some time. It was assumed that
the Soviet spy community must have had some success with
psychic spying and possibly other paranormal activities
as well, and that these successes were why the Soviet
government continued to fund paranormal research.
How subjects are selected for this research was based
on a strict screening process, as some people are more
apt to have psychic abilities than others. Those
subjects that demonstrated psychic abilities were chosen
to participate in the remote viewing research program.
David Morehouse joined the army’s deeply obscure
“remote-viewing” program, code-named Stargate, a
Pentagon and CIA venture from 1972 to 1995 that trained
ultraselect individuals to transcend time and space.
Such people would, Morehouse says, “view persons,
places, or things in time or space and gather
intelligence information on the same.”
Eventually, Morehouse’s life in the world of remote
viewing became too much for him It derailed his
marriage, alienated him from his family, and waylaid his
career. In turn, he became apprehensive about Stargate
techniques. Encouraged by an angelic vision to “work for
peace,” Morehouse violated his military security
agreement and went public in 1993. He was threatened
with a court-martial, though the proceedings were
dropped in November 1994 when Morehouse announced that
he would resign his commission.
