Professional intelligence officer with 50 years of service with the U.S. Army, Bill Ray, talked about how he was trained to be a remote viewer at the Stanford Research Institute in the 1980s, and eventually became Commander of the unit. He also discussed the current state of remote viewing, and the various ways the technique has been used to gather intelligence, as well as how it can benefit individuals. While the military's remote viewing program was discontinued a number of years ago, during its heyday, it provided a lot of useful intel, such as locating and identifying spies, verifying sources, and monitoring Russian research, he noted.
Ray was one of five military viewers personally trained by the legendary psychic Ingo Swann, who developed the technique, which involved making a sketch that puts the subject in deeper contact with a target. Swann taught viewers to avoid "analytical overlay," wherein they start to provide analysis of what they are seeing, which can contaminate their results. One of the downfalls of the military RV program was that it eventually got away from remote viewing, and started using less reliable, more esoteric methods, Ray commented.
Using remote viewing in everyday life can be a useful tool-- it's like having one more sense in which to view the world, said Ray, who added that it can help bring subconscious information to the surface. Ray will be the Master of Ceremonies at the upcoming IRVA (International Remote Viewing Association) Conference, June 15-17, in Las Vegas. This year's conference will be celebrating 40 years of remote viewing with a line-up of distinguished speakers.
First hour guest, maverick physicist James McCanney made an in-studio appearance, sharing his analysis of ancient disasters and civilizations. The great flood of Noah was a global event, reported by cultures around the world. It lasted for around 40 days, when the Earth passed through the tail of a comet, he detailed. There was torrential rain, the sun was blotted out, and ocean levels rose some 600 ft., he continued. He also suggested that Atlantis was in the South China Sea, and Lemuria was near the Hawaiian Islands, both on land masses that became submerged.
