Psi-Magification In Space

Numerous files in the archives reflect U.S. interest and specifics of research being conducted in other nations. Here are two paragraphs from one of many documents discussing the research.
From page 2 of File 10081 (a 9 page document)

3. (U) Professor L. Vasilev died in late 1965 or early 1966 and the task of continuing telepathy research was taken by Doctor I. Kogan. Doctor Kogan is chairman of the Bio-Information Section of the Popov Radio and Technical Institute in Moscow. This individual is still trying to wed telepathy to the electromagnetic spectrum (101,102). Discussion as to the existence of telepathy has been bandied about the Soviet Union (103) and elsewhere (104) for some time. For the sake of research the Soviet Union accepts the validity of ESP even though the argument as to the mode of transmission continues. Professor E.K. Naumov (105), Chairman of the Division of Technical Parapsychology at the A.S. Popov Institute mentioned above, conducted long range telepathy tests from Moscow to several other cities. ...

4. (U) In 1967, the Soviet Maritime News reported, "Cosmonauts, when in orbit, seem to be able to communicate telepathically more easily with each other than with people on earth. A psi (short for psychic faculty) traning system has been incorporated in the cosmonaut training program," but the News provided no further details. Some informal reports relayed to Ostrander and Schroeder (106) indicate that the Soviets are working on psi systems for space use, involving not just telepathy, but also precognition.

The Research & Making sense of the CIA FOIA Documents

Background on the Birth of the Star Gate Interactive Archive

In 1995, the formerly classified research into anomalous cognition, energetics, and remote viewing was declassified (at least in part). According to Paul Smith, obtaining the research documents through the FOIA took many years. In 2004, he wrote the full length article linked to at the right. The following excerpt from that outlines the good news (the documents were finally made available) and the bad news (it was nearly impossible to find anything). That bad news was made good news when this blogger meticulously opened each and every file, one by one, and created a hyperlinked annotated index. According to Paul's 2004 article:

The good news is that now, after nine years of waiting, a major portion of the archives of the US Government’s seminal remote viewing program have not only been declassified, but made generally accessible to the public. For well over a year these same documents had been available on a limited basis, but you had to go bodily to the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, sit at a CD-Rom carrel, wait while the CDs were loaded for you, then page through the [15,200] documents one at a time, printing off copies of those you wanted to take with you. It was laborious and maddening...and a crap shoot. The documents were numbered, not titled, there was no comprehensive index, no subject-matter nor chronological organization to help you know where to look or what you might find there. Soon after the Star Gate corpus was installed in the National Archives, CIA remote viewing program founder Dr. Hal Puthoff tried it out, spending the better part of a day and coming away with relatively little (though he did have lunch with Joe McMoneagle). A U.S. News & World Report journalist went to the Archives and ended up with a hodge-podge of documents of which she couldn’t make heads nor tales. In January, 2003 she faxed me a one-inch stack of them and we had to go through them together over the phone while I explained what each was and where it fit into the overall picture.

But now all that has changed. Ninety thousand pages of the Star Gate Archives, making up nearly[15,500] documents can be owned by anyone. As I said before, that’s the good news. But now for the bad news: It is still hard to sort out a very confusing mis-mash of correspondence, research reports, remote viewing sessions, tasking documents, memos, and so on. I just spent four exhausting weeks going through all fourteen disks the CIA provided, which is what it took to even begin to make sense of it all.

What I did was not much more than a skim-job – though I actually laid eyes on perhaps around 8,000 of the total, relatively few of the documents (though still amounting to hundreds) was I able to exam in any great depth. But it was fascinating. ...

It is one thing to hear about this (or, as in my case, remember them in one’s past). It is an altogether different experience to actually see these fascinating documents with one’s own eyes or, printing them out, actually hold hard copies of them in one’s hand to be leafed through and carefully examined. There was a lot to learn that was new even for me. (Paul Smith)

P.J. Gaenir was also cognizant of the work that went into producing the Interactive Archive. In her words (

When the CIA released around five percent of the records from the collected projects now known as the STAR GATE program, I bought a program that ripped the multi-page TIF files into web-viewable GIFs, did this in detail, then I resized them all, and uploaded them to the web (at

Unfortunately, the index was a disaster. The filename in the index, if you went to that filename, it wasn’t that record. The file itself, the image, would have a different file number stamped on it. I really wracked my brain about it for awhile, but finally had to conclude there was no way to automate a scripting (such as if all the filenames were offset in the same way).

Depressed, given how much time I spent on it, I left the files just sitting there but without a clickable index.

Meanwhile, it turns out Tamra Temple spent about a bazillion hours (we’re talking months. This is an INSANE amount of work!) going through EVERY SINGLE FILE and renumbering them simply and making a detailed index with notes on content. She put it all in excel so it could be searched, sorted, and you can edit the notes and stuff for your own references.

After that much work on it, she well deserves a little compensation for the effort, and it’s not a bad price for this kind of thing. There’s more info and detail at the new website for it:, check it out!

Thank you, PJ :)

And to you the reader, I'd like to add a personal note. The indexing of these documents was a labor of love performed while being displaced by the hurricanes in Louisiana. At the time I began working on them, I believed I would return to my repaired home and the CD logo was "For Humanity." But governments and insurance companies are not as quick to do what needs to be done as one might hope. For example, it's now 2008 and I JUST received a letter from FEMA stating that funds are available for expenses incurred while being displaced. Two years later??? We need a word for an emotion that is a pure mix of laughter and grief. Perhaps it's irony.

So if you are inclined toward research into healing, consciousness, anomalous cognition, or remote viewing, you will find enormous value in the massive content of the Star Gate Interactive Archive. You will also be compensating me for the work I've done in the way that means most to me -- helping me to be "placed" rather than displaced. It's time.

Thanks go to Paul Smith, PJ Gaenir, Hal Puthoff, and Daz Smith whose encouragement, enthusiasm, and support made it possible for the Interactive Archives to be available for purchase online.

Luminescence Phantoms (Bioenergetics in healing and diagnosis )

Star Gate Interactive Archives File 164

R. Stepanov (Doctor of Medical Sciences Professor)

Correct diagnosis of a malignant tumor may be given only if during the operation a piece of tissue is taken from the patient for investigation by histological and histochemical methods. However, these methods require great expense, time and labor. Since 1967 work has been going on in the surgery department of the Kuban Medical Institute on the utilization of "high often frequency" photography for the diagnosis of precancerous states and cancerous tumors of the stomach. Together with SO TO Kirlian and V. Kh. Kirlian, a procedure has been developed for obtaining "high often frequency" photographs of sections of some tissues taken from patients that are being operated on. In order to compare the results obtained by the Kirlian method with other methods, we carried out simutaneous histological and histochemical investigations of these same sections. The results of the investigations convinced us of the fact that a clearly defined difference exists between "high often frequency" images of normal and cancerous

The principle advantage of the new method compared with well-known methods is its expeditious nature. Moreover,because of the cancerous tissue can be photographed immediately after the operation and therefore does not have to time to change significantly, it is possible to study the physico-chemical properties of this tissue under the conditions close to the conditions in the living organism. According to the characteristics of the channel of the high often frequency discharge, their geometry and energetic for a deviation from the norm, one may evaluate not only the extent of the tumor process but also the dynamics of the malignant growth. And this is of very great significance in precise diagnosis and consequently in the therapy of cancer.

Second Article of X and Y in the unidentified journal

The principle distinguishing feature of photographing in a field of high often frequency current is the absence of any optical devices. There is also no need in illuminating the object during the photographing process. Therefore, it is very convenient to use the Kirlian method to obtain photographs of surfaces which are difficult to photograph by means of a conventional camera. Engineer V. I. Mikhalevskii and Candidate of Medical Sciences K. N. Mikhalevskaya proposed a special elastic electrode with a light-sensitive layer deposited on its surface. This simple device may be inserted into any cavity in a contracted state. If it is then filled with a current-conducting liquid (water) and connected for a short time to a high often frequency oscillator, it follows that one can obtain a latent image of the entire inner profile of the cavity on the light-sensitive layer. The electrode after having been removed from the water and retracted from the cavity, is again filled with the same quanitity of liquid, developed and fixed, The "three-dimensional" photograph that is obtained provides a possiblity of detailed evaluation of the Vvel:ectrical state" of any spot on the investigated surface.

Existing methods for photographing cavities by means of microminiature multiobjective cameras and special lightguides are very complicated and do not stand up in any way to a comparison with the simple and cheap method of photographing by means of the elastic electrode in a field of high often frequency current. The new method can find application in various fields of medicine -and engineering where it is required to obtain photographs of the synthesis of the objects that are inaccessible to infection.

An original healing method--biostimulation with a beam from a low often powered laser--has been developed at the Kazakh State University by Doctor of Biological Sciences V. M. Inyushin and his associates. Hypertension, bronchial asthma and other illness that are difficult to treat can be treated successfully by this method.

For a rapid evaluation of the physiological state of patients under laser biostimulation, natives of Alma-Ata have developed a special installation whose principle of operation is based on the "Kirlian effect." The bioenergetic processes in the entire organism when it is acted on by various physical factors are evaluated quantitatively on the grass. A new express method for evaluating the physiological state of a person was used not only in medicine but also in biology.

What are the interesting facts that biologists have been able to discover? It turned out that the intensity of the illuminescence is maximal in young plant leaf and minimal in old ones. And at the instant a leaf is torn off an abrupt flare of illuminescence followed by a rapid attenuation is observed. However, if a plant is placed in a constant magnetic field, then the illumescence
intensity decreases, while the duration of the attenuation increases by a factor of two-three. Under these conditions the effect of the reduction of illumenescence as a result of the reaction of a magnetic field is preserved for a long time even in the case when a magnet no longer acts on the living tissue.

The expressed evaluation of the bioenergetic state of living organism is not the only advantage which attract biologists and physiologists to the "Kirlian effect." The new phenomenon which have been discovered still await their explanation.
