Edward Snowden Hints That the NSA Can Access Your ‘Thoughts & Feelings’
As most of you know, Edward Snowden is the former intelligence contractor who leaked the NSA’s mass surveillance program and discovered some of the most solid evidence for the existence of clandestine black budget operations.
But did we really need the leak in order to believe this? Prior to his leaks, the issue was still considered a conspiracy theory by many, despite the fact that there was still good evidence for these programs prior to Snowden’s revelations.
The United States has a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. The NSA (National Security Agency) was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s.
Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.
Today, there are still a number of issues that hold the stigma of ‘conspiracy theory,’ despite the fact that we have some very credible sources that have revealed some intriguing facts, and one of these issues falls into the realm of parapsychology, the study of phenomena ranging from mental telepathy, clairvoyance, to psychokinesis, remote viewing, and much more.
Just imagine how useful those things would be to ‘spy’ on people? No doubt a great asset to the surveillance state if they are indeed real, which in my opinion, a lot of evidence suggests they are.
A classic example comes from the U.S. government’s ‘Stargate‘ program, which lasted more than 20 years. The program was actually declassified about a decade ago and the results were published in the journal Scientific Exploration.
The program studied various uses for parapsychology and extended human capacities, like telepathy, but was terminated despite the fact that it was very successful with little to know explanation. The program was run by intelligence agencies, like the CIA and NSA, in conjunction with the Stanford Research Institute (SRI).
So, as you can see, this is not strange territory for intelligence agencies.
In fact, in 1976, before this program commenced, a presentation was given at the Institute of Electrical & Electronics (IEEE) on a paper published by the institute on behalf of Doctors Hal Puthoff and Russell Targ, two of the main scientists involved with project Stargate. (See related article “Cancelled TED talk: Physicist contracted by CIA shares everything he knows about ESP“).
Even in 1975, the funding clients had agreed that this subtle perception channel existed in both experienced and inexperienced individuals. (Source, a lecture from Ingo Swann, one of 500 highly skilled participants within the program).
The paper was titled “A Perceptual Channel For Information Transfer Over Kilometer Distances: Historical Perspectives and Recent Research.” It presented scientific evidence for the existence of a perceptual capacity channel whereby certain individuals are able to perceive and describe remote data not perceivable to any known sense.
A CIA document titled “Chronology of Recent Interest in Exceptional Functions of The Human Body in the People’s Republic of China” is also another great example of their interest. In the document, it outlines the Chinese government’s interest in parapsychology (remote viewing, telepathy, psychokinesis, etc.).
Here is another one titled “Research into Paranormal Ability To Break Through Spatial Barriers” that touches upon the same thing. This is elaborated on later in the article.
This particular document, which was declassified through a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA), outlines specific people with very special abilities and how they’ve been studied by thousands of scientists and governments around the world for a very long time.
The document is on the CIA website, but only seems to be accessible from the Internet Archives, a San Francisco–based nonprofit digital library with the stated mission of “universal access to all knowledge.”
SO, WHERE DOES SNOWDEN COME IN?
On October 31st 2016, Edward Snowden retweeted a tweet from NYT Minus Context that said, “Remember that people don’t have access to your secret thoughts and feelings.” His tweet was a response to massive global surveillance, and the fact that nobody really has any privacy anymore. NWY Minus Context was trying to remind people that not everything can be under the watchful eye of the NSA.
