Are Psychic Abilities Real? Banned TED Talk Explains the Secrets
Russell Targ is a physicist who spent several decades working for the CIA in a US government program exploring “remote viewing” and other psychic phenomena. Remote viewing was assumed to be an anomalous extended characteristic of the mind.
This talk was originally slated as part of a TEDx event in 2013, but TED pulled their support when they learned about the subjects. Find more videos from this controversial event here: http://suespeaks.org/ex-tedx-west-hol…
“In this $25 million program we used ‘remote viewing’ to find a downed Russian bomber in North Africa, for which President Carter commended us. We found a kidnapped US general in Italy, and the kidnap car that snatched Patricia Hearst. We looked in on the US hostages in Iran, and predicted the imminent release, who was soon sent to Germany. We described a Russian weapons factory in Siberia, leading to a US congressional investigation about weakness in US security, etc. Our scientific findings were published in Nature, The Proc, IEEE, Proc. AAAS, and Proc. American Institute of Physics. I thought a TED audience would find this recently declassified material interesting. And no physics would be harmed in my presentation.”
