As we enter the 21st century, the idea of psi arguably is becoming more acceptable in contemporary society.
Some contend that psi studies don’t bring reliable scientific results, but police forces still consult with psychics to try to locate dangerous criminals.
Meanwhile, so-called Remote Viewers are conducting controlled experiments, honing a technique that they say will make anyone able to practice unconventional distance viewing.
If human beings are, as the Indian guru Sri Aurobindo believes, slowly evolving into a subtler, more spiritual type of species, it’s conceivable that a new kind of political battleground might arise in the not too distant future–namely, psi spying.
Some futurists predict a scenario where politically hostile psi spies ‘read’ the true intentions of elected politicians and use that knowledge to try to orchestrate chaos in democratic nations.
Just another fringe theory better left to science fiction? Possibly. But according to Anthony C. LoBaido, Steve Hammons and others, the CIA has already experimented with Remote Viewing (RV) as a method for intelligence gathering. And LoBaido says the FBI also investigated RV.
While some may still see the idea of psi spies as just another paranoid conspiracy theory, Jim Marrs doesn’t. His book, Psi Spies: The True Story of America’s Psychic Warfare Program, points out that visionary and prophetic experiences play a large role in most world religions, to include Native American and Biblical traditions. And Marrs claims that over the past quarter decade several US administrations, Republican and Democrat alike, have funded RV research.¹
