Dale E. Graff on Remote Viewing and Dreams #91

On 07/30/19 Fahrusha was thrilled to welcome Dale E. Graff to Shattered Reality Podcast. For several years she has been an appreciative audience to his presentations at symposia of IRVA (International Remote Viewing Association) APP (Applied Precognition Project) and SSE (Society for Scientific Exploration). Dale is the author of two books: Tracks In The Psychic Wilderness (1998) and River Dreams (2000) as well as numerous papers.

Dale E. Graff is a physicist (Drexel) and an aeronautical engineer (Pennsylvania State University). He helped design the Gemini Space Capsule and did pre-planning for the space shuttle. He is an avid outdoorsman who has navigated many Canadian rivers in a canoe, this in spite of having been born a premature baby who was declared dead upon arrival. He was totally determined to defy the odds and still displays great vitality today as he approaches his 85th birthday.

Even as a small child he was a prodigious dreamer and had out of body experiences. After elementary school he began his serious interest in science, which eventually took him to Wright-Paterson Air Force Base where he wrote a forecast document on the Soviet use of ESP research. Through a synchronicity, this led him to become first a contract manager and later a tasker for government remote viewing projects including Project Stargate which he named.

Today Dale E. Graff is retired from that work, but ardently pursuing dream research and asking important questions about the nature of consciousness. We at Shattered Reality Podcast are hoping to have Dale back soon for Part 2, which will focus on dreaming, the nature of consciousness and how to dream more proficiently.

Note: The anti-fragility proponent mentioned by Fahrusha is Wim Hof.

Listeners who wish to participate in our “Listeners’ Corner” feature are asked to contact Fahrusha (fahrusha@fahrusha.com) and put “Listeners’ Corner” in subject heading.

On May 14, 2019, Fahrusha was very pleased to welcome physicist Russell Targ and filmmaker Lance Mungia to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to discuss their film Third Eye Spies. The film chronicles the story of the government’s remote viewing program with emphasis on viewer Pat Price and the role of physicists Russell Targ and Hal Puthoff. Many accounts of events in and around the movie were discussed that were absolutely fascinating. Many of the people discussed in the film are still in the forefront of psi research today while others remain totally anonymous as would befit psychic spies. What actually happened to the amazing Pat Price is still something of a mystery, since there a number of conflicting narratives regarding his death. The film is available for sale through the website, and on rental and download from Amazon, iTunes, and other vendors.

Russ kindly gave a number of pointers to those, like listener Earl, who would like to try remote viewing on their own. Russ Targ has been a very popular previous guest on this show.

Physicist Russell Targ

Sad note: Yesterday, (May 13, 2019) the world of ufology lost a legend, nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman. Rest In Peace. He was a very approachable and friendly man whose contribution to the study of anomalous aerial phenomena was huge. I feel privileged to have met him and spoken to him several times.

Errata: This is the 87th “Shattered Reality Podcast” not the 89th.

Psychic Experiences of Psi Explorers #42

In this podcast episode #42 recorded on January 3, 2017, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha speak to two Psi Explorers and one listener about their personal psychic experiences.

First up is Russell Targ, formerly of the Stanford Research Institute, and one of the originators of remote viewing. His two stories of his own precognitive dreams are thought-provoking. He emphasizes that psychic dreams and other psi phenomena are normal and these experiences can be had by anyone. We just need to be attentive to them.

Russell Targ’s latest book The of Reality of ESP, A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities is an excellent book explaining several different but related psi abilities and substantial examples from his professional experience. A trailer for his movie about the history of the US government’s Remote Viewing program and his participation in it can be seen at the website thirdeyespies.com.

Next up is Dr. Michael Grosso who tells two stories from his own collection of personal psychic experiences. The first is the story of a beautiful Christmas miracle (I can’t tell you more because that would be a spoiler) and the second is a precognitive dream he had as a child. His most recent book is The Man Who Could Fly: St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation.

Listener Peter completes this episode with a very strange ghostly experience he had at the illustrious old Hotel Del Coronado in California in the early 1990’s.

Notes: During the episode Fahrusha mentioned an opinion piece on her blog which was reprinted by George Filer on Filer’s Files. We want to also thank Ken Pfeifer for also reprinting it. The article is called Extraterrestrial Evolution.

 

Russell Targ, Secrets of Remote Viewing #34

Russell Targ, renowned physicist and author, joins Kate Valentine and Fahrusha for an amazing conversation about remote viewing. This episode is a MUST listen.  Shattered Reality Podcast is honored to present this psychic pioneer and his fascinating story about his seminal work in remote viewing as a contractor for several clandestine alphabet agencies.

Targ is the author of nine books. His latest The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities he feels is most complete, partially due to the fact that he was able to include both photos and information that were previously, but no longer, classified. He is also the producer of a new film titled Third Eye Spies which is due for release at the end of the year. Fahrusha has seen two iterations of the film in progress and hails it as an important historical document and a gripping narrative of psychic espionage. The award-winning director of the film is Lance Mungia.

One quote from the movie’s home page sums up Russell Targ’s  point of view about remote viewing, “The CIA, NSA and DIA used it, your tax dollars paid for it, and now you deserve to know about it.”
