59 - America’s Psychic Spies Part III: Goblin Mode
In the weird conclusion to the story of the remote viewers, we see how once the psychic program is a known quantity in the military and intelligence community, things get a bit silly. And very weird. Under the command of INSCOM's director Major General Albert Newton Stubblebine III, and under the magical tutelage of Ingo Swann, the program makes contact with a weird astral projection training center and sound lab in the blue ridge mountains called the Monroe Institute, which uses acoustics to induce trance states and out-of-body-experiences. It's all a bit much for some folks. We also learn about the twilight years of the (official) program and how it fell from grace. And there's a whole bunch of UFOs.
A note on names: the source mostly relied upon for this series is Jim Schnabel’s Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies. Written in 1997, Remote Viewers makes liberal use of pseudonyms for people who did not want to, or could not be identified. We have tried to use the characters’ real names as much as possible. In some cases, such as Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green (referred to as Dr. Richard Kennett in Remote Viewers), we were successful. In others, not so much. And in a few cases we were completely and utterly wrong. Because we’re dumb sometimes. The channeller in part III is Angela Dellafiora, a name erroneously assumed to be a pseudonym. Don't know why. We refer to her as Courtney Brown, who is an entirely different and very real person. Whoops. That’s our bad.
