Apparently the Russians and other Europeans were developing remote viewing (RV) when the US decided to step into the game. After some but I guess not enough bang for the buck, US officials decided to quit the program. However, some former CIA employees, military personnel and journalists still research and write about RV. Here’s an example at WIRED:
When I first learned about RV I had some reservations, mostly because it seemed like such an active (aggressive?) kind of psi. Shouldn’t any kind of positive spiritual ability come from God and thus be a passive “gift” or “charism,” as we say in the Catholic faith? But after thinking it over, I conceded that God might very well want some individuals to actively develop RV. Moreover, Catholics speak of “insight” and “discernment” as gifts that require development. So who can say? Maybe the two aren’t so different after all.
