[May 10, 1996] -- These days the internet abounds with talk of remote viewing. Amidst a cross-fire of claims and counterclaims, renowned remote viewer Ingo Swann stands out as a voice of reason and authority. Some in the field, notably Ed Dames of Psi Tech and newcomer Courtney Brown, author of the controversial new book "Cosmic Voyage," say that remote viewing reveals abundant alien activity on the earth. Swann seems far more reticent on this subject, but is not entirely silent.
In a recent edition of Art Bell's nationally-syndicated "Dreamland" radio show, Linda Howe offered up a pre-taped interview with Ingo Swann in which she asked him about the remote viewing of UFOs. His answer included mention of a story found in the book "Out There" by Howard Blum, wherein a remote viewer not named by Blum but certainly Swann himself, along with the director of SRI's remote viewing research (Dr. Hal Puthoff), were asked to demonstate the efficacy of remote viewing for a group of high-level military brass inside a lead-lined Pentagon conference room.
During the course of this "command performance," Swann was shown photos of several submarines, both Soviet and American, and asked to remote view their precise locations, which he did with impressive accuracy. In one instance, however, Swann also observed another interesting object "hovering" in the water above the submarine in question. When it became apparent that Swann himself was perplexed by this observation, the general chairing the meeting asked for a drawing. Swann drew an oval shape, with a half-oval "dome" attached to the top. According to Blum's account, no one in the room seemed willing to name the object, though all seemed to understand what it was. Finally, one of the scientists (Puthoff?) said, "You're not trying to tell us you saw a flying saucer, are you?" To which Swann replied, "Yes, that's it exactly."
As told to Linda Howe by Swann, this demonstration quickly resulted in increased funding for continued remote viewing research. Interested readers can find Blum's version of this anecdote in the paperback edition of "Out There," beginning on page 21.
