I am starting this blog about my Remote Viewer series, and the subjects I used to weave the plots: biological warfare, China’s one-child policy, the US government’s remote viewing project, human trafficking, and Jeffrey Epstein.
Writing these thrillers has been an interesting and sometimes surprising adventure. I had to write them to find out what happens.
Before I began putting the first story down, I spent months researching this spy phenomenon called remote viewing. Remote viewing is a technique where trained viewers mentally search and find distant targets. The government had been using remote viewers for espionage since WWII. Documents about the government’s $20,000,000 Stargate program that began in 1975, were declassified in the 1990s and copies are available online. You can also find what’s known as the CRV (controlled remote viewing) manual online. According to the book by Courtney Brown called Remote Viewing, the project was very successful. If you read sources like Wikipedia, you’ll find a different point of view. Why has the project been discredited and was it really shut down? (The word espionage begins with ESP.)
I think it’s possible that the US government still has a top-secret remote viewing unit buried somewhere in the National Clandestine Service. I have molded a present-day NCS remote viewing division into my story.
The plot developed further after I read a claim made by a journalist. He stated that Chinese assassins threatened to kill members of the Illuminati because they introduced a race-specific disease into China. The Illuminati’s goal was population control. That also intrigued me and sparked an ongoing unraveling of ideas.
What do you think? Was the remote viewing project successful? If so, why was it discredited? Was it really shut down?
