Russell Targ, a laser physicist, cofounded the remote viewing research program at SRI International. He is coauthor Mind Reach, The Mind Race, Miracles of Mind, The Heart of the Mind, and The End of Suffering. He is author of Limitless Mind and The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities. He is also coeditor of the anthology, Mind At Large.
Here he discusses the early days of remote viewing research with such star percipients as Ingo Swann, Pat Price, and Hella Hammid. He points out that the CIA was very interested in this research and that some CIA agents showed significant remote viewing talent. Several examples of successful remote viewing are presented, including one in which Targ, himself, was the viewer.
