Scientological Techniques: a Modern Paradigm for the Exploration of Consciousness and Psychic Integration; Remote Viewing and the Scientology Connection
Ingo Swann is the author of a paper entitled Scientological Techniques: a Modern Paradigm for the Exploration of Consciousness and Psychic Integration. Published by the Joint Publications Research Service as Document No. JPRS L/5022-1 and is restricted to “Government Use Only”, yet copies can be obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.
I’ve included it in the following link:
The paper itself was presented at the First International Conference on Psychotronic Research given in Prague Czechoslovakia which was a Warsaw Pact nation at the time circa late 1973 and makes the connection between Scientology Techniques and Remote Viewing.
Swann considered by many to be the “father of remote viewing” passed away earlier this year.
It would be remiss in any discussion of remote viewing to omit Swann’s influence. According to his own ebook Remote Viewing – the Real Story he is the one who personally created the neologism giving the precise date and almost the exact time he suggested the term.
Book itself is very interesting reading however even more interesting is that Swann himself for whatever reason doesn’t mention what he at one time considered a major influence in his own psychic journey and that is Scientology.
Not that this nexus is any secret.
The fact is that a majority of the founding fathers of remote viewing including Ingo Swann with the exception of Russell Targ were high level Scientologists who had reached the level of “Operating Thetan”.
“Thetan” from the Greek letter theta is the word used in Scientology for spirit.
An “operating thetan” is one, who according to Scientology lore, can operate outside the body.
Ingo himself was not only an “OT” a term that is commonly abbreviated but also a Scientology Minister. One who is educated in many of the techniques and procedures used in allegedly (since all things spiritual or dealing with the mind are for the most part subjective) achieving this state.
For some reason as Swann became more of an authority in later years he began to obscure this connection.
Unfortunately since Ingo has kissed Earth goodbye we can not ask him why.
To quote former DCI Stanfield Turner when asked about the late Pat Price:
“He died, and we haven’t heard from him since.”
