Just think of the possibilities. Maybe the "other stuff" Edward Snowden hasn't told us has nothing to do with the ramshackle Operation Prism run by NSA. What did they call it? A clandestine mass electronic surveillance data mining program.
So far we know our government knows everything we are doing on the Internet, on cell phones and land lines, and even post office info on everything you got or received in the mail. That ain't bad for what used to be an unknown spy program.
That means our government has figured out how to get digital information on you from the Internet, phones, email and snail mail and they promise they won't use it to violate your right to privacy. Do you buy that?
So what else might we find out is being done with taxpayer money and top secret status?
How about Remote Viewing? It has long been rumored that NSA had a secret Remote Viewing project to determine if they could use out-of-body travel to infiltrate Soviet missile sites.
According to The Farsight Institute, the following is their explanation.
What is Remote Viewing? Here's a Simple Explanation ...
Remote viewing is a controlled and trainable mental process involving psi (or psychic ability). Remote-viewing procedures were originally developed in laboratories funded by the
intelligence services and used for espionage purposes. The scientific
understanding of the remote-viewing phenomenon has greatly advanced in
recent years, and as a result the process of remote viewing can now be reliably
demonstrated in both laboratory and operational settings. United States
There are a number of styles of remote-viewing procedures that are popularly practiced, such as Scientific Remote Viewing (SRV), Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV), Hawaii Remote Viewers' Guild procedures (HRVG), as well as a few others. Remote viewers use one or more of these styles to gather descriptive data of a "target," which is usually some place or event at some point in time. Remote viewing is always done under blind conditions, which means that the remote viewer must know nothing about the target when conducting the remote-viewing session.
All of the various styles of remote viewing require both training and regular practice in order for a remote viewer to become proficient. Remote viewing is normally considered a controlled shifting of awareness that is performed in the normal waking state of consciousness, and it does not typically involve an out-of-body experience, hypnosis, an altered state of consciousness, or channeling.
Remote viewing is often performed in laboratory experiments involving psi functioning. The targets used in such experiments are normally considered "verifiable," which means that everything that needs to be known about such targets either has been or can be determined so that the remote-viewing data can be compared with the target facts. A great deal of research is currently being done with regard to remote-viewing processes. Researchers are trying to understand the underlying mechanism of psi functioning, as well as to develop theories that explain various known and repeatable phenomena associated with remote viewing.
It is a matter of historical record that remote viewing has been used operationally in the past with considerable success by the
government for espionage purposes, and a number of books recounting such programs have been published.
There was even an official (and largely positive) evaluation of a significant
part of the government's early remote-viewing program. Popular interest in
remote viewing is often associated with this history. Current levels of
governmental support for remote-viewing research and operations in the United
States are not publicly known, although it is commonly assumed that efforts to
utilize remote viewing for espionage purposes continues today, both in the U.S.
and elsewhere. U.S.
The Farsight Institute is a nonprofit research and educational organization that is dedicated to understanding the remote-viewing phenomenon itself through the process of scientific experimentation. Our mission is to investigate the process of remote viewing itself. It is our belief that a more complete understanding of the remote-viewing phenomenon will have collateral benefits to much of science and society. Due to how the remote-viewing phenomenon manifests in controlled experiments, the remote-viewing phenomenon appears to be based on quantum-processes. Much of the research done at The Farsight Institute blends the theory of quantum mechanics with interpretations of experimental remote-viewing data. This has lead to new insights into the remote-viewing phenomenon as well as the nature of time and physical reality. For example, new research indicates that alternate futures actually do exist, and that the past exists simultaneously with the present. New research also suggests that at least information can be transferred in a manner that violates relativistic limitations of the speed of light, and that information transfer across time does not require enormous energy consumption that would be associated with worm hole singularities. These questions are among the most profound addressed by science today.
In simple terms, a person at a lab with handlers leaves his body and travels to a designated location where he or she can observe what is going on. It is not known whether they could actually interact with people in that existence. Any success in time travel either forward into the future or back in time has been kept from the public.
But imagine the consequences. What would happen if you could go back in time and warn
that he was going to be shot at Ford's Theater.
If you could convince him you were legit and he skipped the theater
engagement the future would be radically changed. Lincoln
On another note, since you are traveling out-of-body that puts you into the spiritual realm so does that mean you could interact with angels, or demons? What would happen if someone encountered a powerful fallen angel, the epitome of evil on earth? Could the physical limitations of the human brain even start to absorb the magnitude of such an encounter?
Participants in the secret remote viewing experiments sometimes died in the midst of encountering some form of demon, evil or absolute darkness out in the spiritual realm. It was as if they died of fright.
Certainly remote viewing was possible. I knew a former audio engineer named Robert Monroe who actually patented out-of-body travel techniques through his Monroe Institute. He dedicated his life to finding ways to use such techniques to help people trapped in their bodies by mental illness, altruism and ADHD among many other techniques.
I joined his Foundation which then became his Institute back in the 1970's and watched in amazement as he used science to study the metaphysical world. In fact we did a lot of experimenting with another of his inventions, hemi-sync.
Hemi-Sync is short for Hemispheric Synchronization, also known as brainwave synchronization.
indicated that the
technique synchronizes the two hemispheres of one's brain, thereby creating a
'frequency-following response' designed to evoke certain effects. Hemi-Sync has
been used for many purposes, including relaxation and sleep
induction, learning and memory aids, helping those with physical and mental
difficulties, and reaching altered states of consciousness
through the use of sound. Monroe
Robert Monroe (1915-1995) was the pioneer in the investigation of out-of-body experiences (OBEs) and the author of the ground-breaking book entitled Journeys out of the Body. His record of out of body experiences in places unbound by time or death has comforted millions of people who have encountered paranormal incidents.
Unpredictably and without his willing it,
leaving his physical body and traveling via a second body to locales far
removed from any physical or spiritual reality he could comprehend. In the
ensuing years, Monroe and his group began work on means and methods of inducing
and controlling this and other forms of consciousness in their laboratory. As
specialists in creating patterns of effective sound, they used this base for
their research. Monroe
Their efforts gradually produced significant results, and attracted International interest among people from all walks of life. In 1974, he founded the Monroe Institute and began conducting learning seminars in self-control of human consciousness. Three patents were issued to
for the methods
and techniques so generated, and the trademark, HEMI-SYNC, also became broad public
knowledge. Other works by Monroe
are Far Journeys, and Ultimate Journey. Monroe

Our VisionThe Global Awakening of Humanity
To enhance worldwide cooperative efforts in furthering the exploration of consciousness, expanded awareness, and discovery of self.
The Monroe Institute provides experiential education programs facilitating the personal exploration of human consciousness. Over the last 30+ years, tens of thousands of people have attended the Institute’s residential and outreach programs, and millions have benefited from our educational materials. The Institute admits students of any race, color, creed, and national or ethnic origin.
The Monroe Institute also serves as the core of a research affiliation investigating the evolution of human consciousness and making related information available to the public. The Institute is devoted to the premise that focused consciousness contains solutions to the major issues of human experience.
A greater understanding of such consciousness can be achieved through coordinated research efforts using an interdisciplinary approach. For this reason the Institute is working in collaboration with researchers and clinicians in many areas, especially through university and clinical collaborations and our Professional membership and Board of Advisors.
The results of such research efforts are meaningful only if there are practical applications—something of value for our contemporary culture. As a nonprofit educational and research organization dedicated to the exploration of human consciousness, the Institute proposes to introduce or enhance abilities that will constructively change humankind’s direction and destiny.
Ours is a mission of service in which we use the technology created at The Monroe Institute to better the lives of all those we can reach. Bob Monroe wanted to provide something of value to humanity, help people lead better and more fulfilling lives.
We strive to carry out that legacy by reaching out to communities that can benefit from this technology, not only those who are able to come to our programs. We are working on several projects with this intent.

So I say NSA could tell us their experiences about remote viewing and other metaphysical activity or do we just have to wait to see if Snowden releases it in his next round of exposing secrets.
