By Turan Rifat

July 1996


The history of remote viewing (RV) goes back to the 1950s. RV was
developed during the cold war to enable security organizations
the ability to gain information about top secret enemy sites in
which they had no assets. The Russians have always been more
advanced than their American counterparts in the study of
biological remote mind control technology (RMCT). This did not go
unnoticed by the CIA and the US military. Project Scanate was
implemented to begin research by the US military into RV. There
followed many different projects, including: Grill Flame, Center
Lane, Sunstreak and Stargate.[1]

As a scientist I became fascinated by the implications of RV, for
if it really worked, it totally upset the paradigm upon which our
scientific model of reality was based. The work of Dr. Jessica
Utts, who being a Professor of statistics at Stanford, has
scientifically proved that RV phenomena exist and was significant
in this respect.[2] For it showed that science as we know it is
crucially flawed.[3] It is as if we have developed atomic
energy, yet have less knowledge than our caveman ancestors of the
essential nature of reality. The sceptics rebutted the Utts paper
and have denied any paranormal phenomena could possibly exist.[4]
This might be more comfortable to the scientific community, but
RMCT is being used more and more by the military.

To mask this, the US military's position on RV was stated by CIA
spokesperson David Christian, who accepted that no further
official US research into RV was warranted. "We think the
intelligence community shouldn't pursue research on this and that
it is best left to the private sector." Is there a campaign of
disinformation to mask their continued and accelerated study of
the subject? Could programmes such as "The Real X Files," (shown
on Channel 4 UK) created by Jim Schnabel, a CIA operative, be
designed to act as red herrings to mask the US security
organizations true intent? If so, wouldn't the public's interest
in this area mean that the privately run US RV organizations
(all run by "retired" US security officers), that they could turn
to for training, would have a large number of applicants? This
would be useful if the US intelligence community was trawling for
undiscovered Psi-able people to recruit for a burgeoning RMCT
military programme.[5]

This led me to ask, could there be a scientific basis to RV and
RMCT? As a proponent of RV, I know that it works. Joe McMoneagle,
a retired army intelligence officer, who claims to have left
Stargate in 1984 with a Legion of Merit Award for providing
information on 150 targets that were unavailable from other
sources, used RV to go into the mind of Shaw Taylor to see
through his eyes; an experiment carried out on the Paranormal
World of Paul McKenna (ITV TV). This method of using RV to enter
the brains of other people is called remote sensing (RS). RMCT
can be thought of as the basis for ESP and telepathy.

I have had many people asking me whether there was any available
information on the scientific basis of RV. Having looked through
the Internet at the available web sites purporting to be leaders
in RV technology, I came to the conclusion that either the
knowledge base of Western experts was feeble, or most of the real
information was classified. Most of the leading research done in
the US on brain function with respect to RMCT (electronic) is
classified. The excellent articles in Nexus (including Vol.3,
No.3) have covered electronic RMCT in more depth than is
available elsewhere.

To my knowledge, there has been little scientific discussion of
biophysical RMCT. The following is a brief introduction.

The Scientific Basis of RV

If RV is to work, something must leave the body so remote
locations can be looked at. RV uses biophysical field effects
to manifest perception outside the body. The Russians have been
the world experts in biophysics since the fifties. Research in
this area has concentrated on military uses of biophysical
field effects, telekinesis and the search for Psi genes that
promote and mediate RV, and the biophysical fields involved in
telekinesis. This has led to the Russians study of the
biological basis of RV.

It is well known that the physical body is surrounded by a mantle
of electromagnetic energy. Our eyes pick up this photonic
emission; though 90% of this information is filtered out in the
thalamus. The remainder is fitted into a visual mental model
which we see as reality. Once one can unfilter visual perception,
auras around people can be seen. Microwave stimulation of the
brain with ELF audiograms can effect brain function for RMCT.[6]
This methodology being the basis of US RMCT, but the EM field
around the body can also be effected by other types of EM
irradiation, electric fields and magnetic fields.

EMF Induced Calcium Efflux

Dr. Ross Adey's research at the Brain Research Institute of the
University of California has shown that there is a biological
reaction to EM radiation. This reaction was found to be
dependant on the frequency, amplitude and dose of the microwave
radiation used.

In the 1980s Dr. Adey performed some crucial experiments using
microwave carrier waves modulated with extremely low frequency
(ELF) modulations to modify brain tissue responses. He carried
out experiments with cat brain tissue, showing that the binding
of calcium ions to neuronal sites was affected by weak EM fields.
These fields were of a frequency and amplitude which was similar
to fields produced in mammalian bodies and detected on
electroencephalographs (EEG). Dr. Adey demonstrated how a 147
MHz field, which at tissue level had an intensity of 0.8
milliwatts per square centimeter, caused a release of calcium
ions which effluxed from this irradiated brain tissue. This
response only occurred when the ELF modulation of the microwave
carrier wave had an amplitude modulated at 6-20 Hz. Maximum
stimulation of the neurones took place at 16 Hz; to either side
of this frequency range parameter there was no effect.

Microwaves of a similar waveform were used by researcher C. S.
Blackman in a US research facility. He noted a set of narrow
field intensity parameters of microwave irradiation effects that
was greatest at 0.75 milliwatts per square centimeter. This
caused the neurones to efflux calcium to the greatest extent.

Adey repeated Blackman's experiments and confirmed a microwave
intensity parametric area between 0.1 and 1 milliwatt per square
centimeter. This used a 450 MHz microwave carrier wave amplitude
modulated by an ELF of 16 Hz. It was found that this set of EM
parameters caused the largest calcium efflux in the neurones.
When other EM parameters were used they caused no response.

In comparison, ELF modulated microwave radiation, in the 6-20 Hz
range at field intensifies lower by several orders of magnitude
than the above, caused a decrease of calcium ion efflux in the
neurones. A useful observation was that the frequency and
amplitude of the response of the neuronal brain tissue remained
the same whether it was stimulated or damped.

There was a consistency in the magnitude of the response. This
being a 10-15% increase in calcium ion efflux using the higher
intensifies and an identical reduction using the lower
intensifies described above.

Since the neurones are effected by EM fields, the EM mantle
around our bodies and anything that effects it will effect brain
function.[7] The mechanism for this is that ELF modulated
microwaves can effect calcium efflux in the neurones, which
effects short and long term potentiation of the neurones with a
concomitant effect on memory. Much of this research was funded by
the CIA who began this work on electronic mind control with their
infamous Pandora project. This research was used to build devices
like the RHIC-EDOM (Radio Hypnotic Intracerebral Control:
Electronic Dissolution of Memory), which is allegedly used for
forced induction of hypnotic trance for the abduction and
experimentation of civilians by the US government.[8]

My research interest has been in the biological and biophysical
basis of paranormal phenomena. Since the body has an intrinsic EM
mantle, could this EM field be projected outside the body? Dr.
Ross Adey's research has given us a pathway by which EM fields
can directly effect the brain. Could information gleaned by
roving biophysical EM field effects be the basis for RV? These EM
fields could be picking up information, then transferring them to
the brain by the above mechanism. It seems a valid basis for RV.
Unfortunately, it is not the whole picture.

RV operators can travel to distant star systems, travel backward
and forward in time, enter facilities protected by metal
Faraday-like cages and US facilities armed with EM flytrap field
generators. All of these phenomena indicate something not limited
by Einstein's Special Relativity theory and Maxwell's EM field
equations is acting as the carrier for RV. Mayhap, US
researchers into remote viewers' capabilities have learned to
manipulate EM field effects for their RV experiments using
electronic enhancement of Psi effects. This methodology being the
basis for US experiments into biological synthetic telepathy; the
use of EM fields to boost latent Psi gene activity to the level
where it is useful. My research seems to indicate that they are
only scratching the surface of the RV envelope.

What is interesting to note from Dr. Ross Adey's research is that
a 6-20 Hz frequency is needed for the neuronal calcium efflux
events. Normal people are entrained to function at high beta,
which pushes there EEG measured brainwave frequency above the 20
Hz threshold. This means that normal people have no contact with
neuronal calcium efflux events. If these events are, as I
believe, an integral part of RV and other Psi operations, the
general public will be Psi damped, not exhibiting
parapsychological talents to any marked degree. Alpha training,
that teaches people to work in the 7-14 Hz range, seems to open
up Psi abilities. If neuronal calcium efflux events are crucial
to Psi operation, we can begin to see a reason why simple
techniques of alpha entrainment and biofeedback bring on
paranormal functioning in humans. Major Ed Dames has stated that
military remote viewers operate in theta. This is a brainwave
frequency of 4-7 Hz. It may be that lower frequencies in
the 6-20 Hz window are more powerful for Psi activity. Since
the energy of the EM wave is related to frequency, if we lower
the frequency of the brainwaves we can think with less energy,
and the biophysical RV vehicle is therefore more efficient.

To understand what is really going on beyond the EM bandwidth of
RMCT events we need to look at a reappraisal of physics. In the
early part of this century Einstein formulated his General
Theory of Relativity. It linked the curvature of space-time with
gravity. In formulating the field equations to link curvature of
space-time with gravity Einstein found that the Energy-Momentum
tensor (simplistically, the sum total of mass-energy) did not
equate to the Ricci tensor (a curvature function). To balance his
equation Einstein had to subtract from the Ricci tensor R, a
sort of one term summary of curvature, which varies from point to
point. As a scientist, I was intrigued by the question of why
this should be so. It would seem to indicate that reality is not
singular but has a duality. The Einstein tensor only balances
when one subtracts the mathematical summation of the curvature of
this other reality from the curvature of physical space. The
dual nature of reality has been written about in many books.[9]
Could RV be a biophysical field effect moving in this parallel
reality? If so, our knowledge of the nature of reality may be so
limited that we are completely blind to this second reality,
which is contiguous with our own and only makes itself known to
us in the quantum realm.

This parallel reality is seen in lucid dreaming and OBEs and is
glimpsed in daydreaming states. Australian aborigines have a
whole body of knowledge about this dreamtime reality. Remote
viewers are relearning abilities that our ancestors had direct
knowledge of millennia ago. My research has led me to believe
that this dreamtime reality is not electromagnetic in nature, but
is composed of a new set of field effects. These field effects
are the basis of biophysical, biotronic and bioplasmic phenomena.
The electronic RMCT of the US government mind control devices and
related weapon systems mimics these higher order field effects.

RV, the ability to see things far from one's physical body, would
have been of great use to our hunter gatherer ancestors. Hunters
who could find game would by natural selection have been more
likely to breed. This would mean that any Psi genes would have
been selected. Throughout our hunter gatherer past, Psi genes
would have increased, as those carrying those genes would be more
likely to survive.[10]

With the onset of agriculture, the selective pressure would have
ceased to be so important. This would mean that highly developed
cultures, such as our own, would have lost the Psi genes, whilst
hunter gatherers such as the aborigines of Australia or the
Kalahari bushman would still have RV capabilities at large in
the population.

The widespread burning and persecution of witches in Europe would
have deselected Psi genes, making them much rarer. Only cultures
which have not persecuted paranormal ability would have kept a
high level of Psi genes. The North American Indians venerated
paranormal abilities. So, they would have been a repository of
these genes, had not Europeans slaughtered them.

The former Soviet Union has been researching Psi genes for
decades. KGB operatives were told to pick up people displaying
paranormal abilities for use in their vast parapsychological
research projects.[11] In the 1960s, the Americans only tacitly
began to research the subject "because the communists were doing
it." Their research was based on new age phenomena and
methodology. This meant the Americans never achieved any great
breakthroughs in biophysical field phenomena, hampered as they
were by new age thinking, at the expense of the scientific

In 1995, the US security establishment decided to take a new
interest in biophysical RMCT. This meant that the CIA had to
release disinformation that purported to state that the Americans
had given up this research -- even though it worked.

The Psi genes in the genome of the people taking RV courses will
affect the ability of people to remotely view. From our research
it does seem that some people can display significant RV
capabilities. This would seem to indicate that man had a long
history as a hunter gatherer, and the period since agriculture
took hold has not deselected all the Psi genes from the
population. It does seem that western women have had a number of
the Psi genes removed from their genomes by the selective
pressure of burning any women in the middle ages that showed
paranormal ability. My research seems to indicate the European
men would score significantly better at RMCT than women. Other
cultures that have not persecuted their females may have RMCT
performance enhanced in the women of their populations, as their
appears to be significant sex related Psi-amplification in

The World Wars in Europe would have acted on any males in combat
as a considerable selective pressure to choose for those
individuals carrying Psi genes, as probabilistically, they would
be more likely to survive. This would have meant the progeny of
Europeans who fought in the wars would have more Psi genes in the
population than they would normally have had, had it been
peacetime. The magazine Fortune has stated that the "top 500"
CEOs have greater than normal Psi-intuition and gut-feeling
symptomatic precognitive reactions.

My research seems to indicate that there are secondary and
primary Psi genes. The secondary Psi genes are those that
facilitate biophysical integration with the organism and which
code for richer and higher function neural networks to interface
with the biophysical energy. Primary Psi genes are those that
give enhanced RMCT capability by the specific nature of the
proteins they code for, which act as biophysical batteries and
other more obscure phenomena that are involved with biophysical
processing, storage and utilization. It appears that some
peoples' bodies act as natural Psychotronic Generators, storing
Psi energy.[12]

The high basal stress levels of western man release a torrent of
neurohormonal and electrical stimuli that appears to switch off
the Psi genes. Instead, this overstimulation switches on the
oncogenes that cause cancer. This means that paranormal phenomena
are rare in the general population and lack the repeatability
needed for scientific verification.

Switching on Latent RV Abilities in People

Since stress interferes with the mechanism of RV, it is vital
that the stress neurohormones and electrical overstimulation
that switch off Psi genes are lowered to the point where they
cannot inhibit RV activity.

It is also necessary to learn new mental software to run RV
programmes to increase the signal to noise ratio of Psi
phenomena.[13] Learning new memes to switch off the negative
feedback cycle that keeps people in a state of anxiety is also
vital to initiating RV. Simple new habits and software (memes)
that people can use at work to inculcate RV ability also amplify
the process of RV initiation. Built into this methodology are
techniques to free up biophysical energy and develop RV
abilities. This was done with the knowledge that people expend
most of their biophysical energy at work. An effective system of
RV training must bring in peoples' working habits and training,
and show them that enhancing their effectiveness at work by use
of Psi-enabling memes will invariably open up paranormal
abilities. The rational behind this is, if you are more effective
at work, you have more biophysical energy left over at the end of
the day for use in building an RV biophysical body.

By including your normal day-to-day work memes and
incorporating them into RV training, people will automatically be
practising their RMCT. The net effect of this is tremendous
improvement in their RV abilities.

The Cinema Method of clearing ones mind, using RV as the moving
pictures, is a fundamental next step. When watching the cinema
screen, we all stop talking to ourselves. This switches off the
internal dialogue, the incessant mental conversation that we have
inside our heads.[14] Mental silence is the second major initiator
of RV (the first being habitually relaxed by using Psi-enabling
stress management techniques). Clearing the mind by focusing
Directed Attention on RV is the most powerful way of developing
RMCT. Directed Attention is the guided use of perception to study
RV. Once Directed Attention has been set up, it can be used for
RV of distant locations.

First practice is on known locations, then more obscure sights. A
discussion of ways of improving the RV abilities are discussed at
length on my web site: http://www.fastnet.co.uk./pms

The next factor the author looked at was the phenomena of being
able to be aware of two places at once. Physical perception and
RV can be practised at the same time. This has dramatic
implications for it means that our brains and our biophysical
field effects can be aware separately from one another. Dr.
Edelman, a leading neurophysiologist, has formulated the theory
of Neural Darwinism. This postulates that neurones compete with
each other by natural selection, and in the process neuronal
group selection forms neural networks which have the capability
of primary consciousness. As the process is iterated, High-Order
Consciousness develops leading to sapience in man.[15]
Connecting this work with that of Dr. Ross Adey indicates that
the brain can think without biophysical field effects, but these
field effects, through their link with calcium efflux modulated
neuronal potentiation events, can interact in a synergistic

Research into RV and OBEs indicates that biophysical field
effects also have High-Order Consciousness.[16] The mechanism of
High-Order Consciousness in Biophysical field effects is derived
from similar processes of Darwinian Selection in morphogenetic
fields.[17] It is known by morphogenetic developmental
researchers that the human genome does not contain enough
information to turn the blastocyst into an embryo. Morphogenetic
field effects are needed to switch on specific gene groupings
dependant on their position in the blastocyst (small clump of
fertilized cells). These biophysical morphogenetic fields switch
on specific genes and turn of other genes, all based upon their
location in space-time. A profound revelation to the author, who
realized that the biophysical fields contain large amounts of
information not held in the genome. Further to this, the
biophysical fields can control gene expression. It did not take
me long to realize that a natural consequence of RMCT was the
development in RV practitioners of an evolution in their
morphogenetic fields. Like the neurones effected by neural
Darwinism, morphogenetic fields could evolve through primary
consciousness to High-Order Consciousness. This would enable
powerful RV abilities, but more importantly, it could lead to the
Psi-able operator being able to switch his genes on and off. The
health and gerontology implications of this are far reaching. The
author developed Paranormal Psychoneural Immunology, the use of
RMCT to raise morphogenetic field effects to High-Order
Consciousness. With the discovery that a gene changed naturally
into a normal version in a patient suffering from lethal genetic
diseases, it appears our genome can be changed in vivo.[18]

RMCT in its guise of Paranormal Psychoneural immunology can be
used to change our own genome. It seems that the use of theta
states in Psi-able operators can enable them to rewrite their own
DNA. This line of research may enable the author to increase the
telomeres on the end of his chromosomes by selective stimulation
of telemerase enzymes in the nucleus. Since telomere loss is
associated with ageing, this may boost longevity without the
risks associated with the US drug rejuvenation programmes being
developed by American corporations for the NWO super rich.

To conclude this introduction to the science of biophysical RMCT,
a technique known as "Sleep-Wake Hypnosis" allowed a hypnotist to
transfer hypnotic commands telepathically to a subject, whether
they were a few feet, or even a thousand miles away. A Ukrainian,
Albert Ignatenko, demonstrated (on the Paranormal World of Paul
McKenna, ITV UK) that he could raise or lower the pulse rate of
people who were remote from him. This was a dramatic
demonstration of remote influencing (RI).

RI is the basis of hypnosis. My research would seem to indicate
that RV of other people can enable the Psi-able operator to
effect the neuronal calcium efflux of that person rather like
the NSA electronic microwave mind control machines. The use of RI
could therefore be used to effect the money markets by working
on the brains of the market makers. Since the biophysical field
effects reside in us all, it would seem probable that RI will be
seen as a threat to the NWO ruling class. At present biophysical
RMCT is not legislated against because the Russian military have
almost exclusive use of it. With the burgeoning of small
individual companies in the RV field, all run by "retired" US
military personnel, one can be sure that effective RI will never
reach the public domain.

This is a pity because some aspects of Alternative healing can be
thought of as a crude common usage of RI. The ability of the RV
attention to effect the body and those of other people could
have tremendous implications for healing and the health of the
nation.[19] The RI effect is the scientific basis of the mind
over matter phenomena. The forthcoming EU bans on alternative
therapies, vitamins and herbal remedies may just be the tip of
the iceberg. In the future it may be illegal to think in anything
but beta, with only a select few authorized to work in
Psi-enabling theta. The rising tension in the world, media
fearmongering and the mind deadening effect of TV may he a
coincidence, but yet again they may not...?


RV is being used by many branches of military and
state security. The science of RMCT is in its infancy but may
prove to be a key agency in the affairs of the twenty-first
