OLGA SPIEGEL—"Ancient Future"


Highways #8, Ingo Swann (1979)


If the painter wishes to see enchanting beauties, he has the power to produce them.
If he wishes to see monstrosities, whether terrifying, or ludicrous and laughable,
or pitiful, he has the power and authority to create them...
Indeed, whatever exists in the universe, whether in essence, in act, or in the imagination,
the painter has first in his mind and then in his hands.




The Real Story is a book being placed in the Internet and WWW in serialized form, with continuing segments appearing at unscheduled intervals because of the time necessary to complete each segment.

The book is appearing in this fashion because the top five publishers in these United States rejected it on the grounds that the public interest in the real story of remote viewing is minimal and the story is of no real mainstream interest. The author has nonetheless determined that a record of the story should be available for open-and-free-access historical purposes and for those who might chance to have interest.

For purposes of accuracy, the book is very carefully based on documents existing in the author's voluminous, chronological archives as well as some in the possession of other sources and resources. All documents substantively depended upon are noted in the text.

A complete bibliography of additional sources and other supportive materials will be appended later on. In those instances where guideline documentation is not available, or never existed, I have confirmed my recall by consulting with one or more direct witnesses of those instances. This follows accepted journalistic procedures which are both traditional and proper.

However, the book, as it must be, is cast in the form of an autobiographical memoir and therefore contains many memories, opinions, deductions and estimations of the author -- and who therefore leans on the freedoms of speech, belief and opinion guaranteed by founding documents generally and equally applicable throughout the United States.





Part One: Beginnings 1919 -- 1971


Silence of the heart, practiced with wisdom,
will see a lofty depth;
And the ear of the silent mind will hear untold wonders.

-- Hesychius of Jerusalem


Part Two: The Emergence of Remote Viewing At The American Society For Psychical Research 1971-- 1972


You cannot teach a man anything.
You can only help him discover it within himself.-- GalileoToday something is happening to the structure of human consciousness.
A fresh kind of life is starting.

-- Teilhard de Chardin


Part Three: Stanford Research Institute (SRI) 1972


The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure
and the intelligent are full of doubt.

-- Bertrand Russell

What we need is more people who specialize in the impossible.

-- Theodore Roethke
