  title={CIA-Initiated Remote Viewing Program at Stanford Research Institute},
  author={Harold E. Puthoff},
  year={1996}
}
In July 1995 the CIA declassified, and approved for release, documents revealing its sponsorship in the 1970s of a program at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, CA, to determine whether such phenomena , as remote viewing "might have any utility for intelligence collection".' Thus began disclosure to the public of a two-decade-plus involvement of the intel- ligence community in the investigation of so-called parapsychological or psi phenomena. Presented here by the program's Founder and…

As part of the fiscal year 1995 defense appropriations bill, responsibility for the government-sponsored investigation and use of ESP(1) was transferred to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). In a
Hacking the Akashic Records: The Next Domain for Military Intelligence Operations?
TLDR
A hypothetical six-dimension doctrine for military intelligence-gathering in the Akashic domain, as a permanent record of all thoughts, feelings, and actions, stored in a kind of cosmic memory bank outside of space and time is outlined.
Remote Viewing the Future with a Tasking Temporal Outbounder
TLDR
There is strong support for the hypothesis that experimental designs utilizing a temporal outbounder as a tasker greatly enhances the accuracy of remote-viewing descriptions of future events.

In 1973 Robert Stoller wrote a paper on a series of dreams—his own and his patients'—that he reluctantly found himself calling `telepathic.` He never submitted the paper for publication, though he

This paper describes a theory explaining precognition literally as the “pre-cognition” of information contained within the percipient’s brain in the future—a link with his or her future experience of
Empirical Evidence Against Decision Augmentation Theory
TLDR
An analysis of the entire PEAR database published in Jahn et al. (1996), which shows that the database as a whole is consistent with bitwise influence, and rejects DAT at well over the 5 s level in a linear regression test.
