Joseph McMoneagle Answers Questions On Remote Viewing

I’ve talked previously about the one and only Joseph McMoneagle, an expert on remote viewing. Here’s the post I’m talking about.

This is Joseph’s bio in case you missed it:

Joseph McMoneagle (Born January 10, 1946, Miami, Florida) is known for his involvement in the development of Remote Viewing by U.S. Army Intelligence and the Stanford Research Institute. He was one of the original Officers recruited for the top-secret army program now known as Project Star Gate.

So why do I mention Joseph again? Well, it’s because I discovered this awesome interview he did with Jerry Snider for Magical Blend magazine. Here it is:

What is remote viewing and what is it not?

Joseph McMoneagle: Remote viewing is psychic functioning done within a very specific and limiting protocol that can be studied and replicated in a lab environment. The term was coined by researchers at SRI International in Mountain View California in 1972.

What is the protocol?

Joseph McMoneagle: The original protocol calls for one person, called an outbounder, to go to a randomly selected target and a second person, the remote viewer psychic, who sits in a windowless room in a lab. At an appointed time, the remote viewer is asked to describe the whereabouts of the outbounder, usually through drawings and verbal transcripts. Once the remote viewer’s impressions are recorded, he or she is taken to the target in order to get a sense of the accuracy or inaccuracy of the attempt. That was the original protocol, but several things happened to change it. For one thing, after many years of using San Francisco Bay Area targets, the range had to be extended. Since the researchers wanted to see if distance had any effect on the information transfer, targets were selected overseas. Obviously, this began to get expensive, so a new system was developed called the coordinate remote viewing system. Map coordinates were used to identify specific targets. Researchers created a huge database of targets from which a random set of coordinates was retrieved. The remote viewer was then asked to describe the physical location corresponding to these coordinates.

Was the remote viewer told the coordinates?

Joseph McMoneagle: No. The coordinates were sealed and double-wrapped in opaque envelopes. The latest approach is more application oriented. Instead of coordinates, photographs from different places from all across the earth are selected at random, sealed in an envelope and the remote viewer describes the location of the place where the photograph was taken.

What do researchers look for when selecting remote viewers?
