Banned TEDTalk about Psychic Abilities

Russell Targ is a physicist who spent several decades working in a United States government program exploring remote viewing, which is an apparent anomalous extended characteristic of the mind. Targ is convinced that the effect is real. This TEDtalk was originally slated as part of a TEDx event in 2013, but TEDtalk pulled their support when they learned about the subjects of the story. Targ talks about the remarkable work they did at the Stanford Research Institute investigating psychic abilities. They did the work for the CIA, NASA, and many other intelligence systems. Targ got into this sort of work from being a child magician, doing mental magic. He had the experience from time to time of having the direct perception in the lifestream of the person he was trying to tell. He said it is common knowledge amongst other magicians that from time to time you are given some material, and you can supplement your magic show with some of the ESP that is given to you.

His talk is quite interesting, and you are sure to be intrigued by the information on psychic abilities that he describes. The work they did involved things like finding a downed Russian airplane in North Africa with code books on it, locating a kidnapped American general in Northern Italy, looking into a Soviet weapons factory in Soviet Siberia, describing the construction of a huge Soviet submarine in Russia. They did quite a lot of useful things for the government in their 23-year program. He goes onto say that everyone has psychic ability. Natural psychic ability is something everyone has; people can quiet their mind and describe and experience what is happening in a distant place or the future. This has been talked about for thousands of years, and Buddhists have vast lore about what this is, how to do it, and why psychic reading and psychic ability is desirable. The psychic ability allows you to quiet your mind, and describe and experience what is happening in the future; you can do that independent of the distance. The most interesting thing they found as physicists that it is no harder to describe what is happening in Soviet Siberia 6,000 miles away, then it is to describe something that is right in front of you. 6,000 miles away does not decrease the accuracy of the psychic reading.

The idea of non-local connections is nothing new; it was described originally by Buddhists over 2,000 years ago. The people in the psychic program made sure that they published all of their psychic work in all of the most reputable publications. Part of their research was on whether or not you can learn psychic ability, and the answer is yes. Targ talks about remote viewing, which is a natural psychic ability. He says that remote ability is easy to do. If you work with a friend, you can quickly both become psychic. He says that they used psychic abilities to forecast silver futures, they did nine forecasts on whether the silver was going to go up and down, and they made $120,000 int he 1980s. The group was on the front of the Wall Street Journal. The psychic program even looked in on the American hostages in Iran and discovered that one was going to be evacuated because of illness. After seeing this video, you will have an opinion either way on whether or not psychic ability in humans does exist.
