Russell Targ’s Links
Russell Targ, is a physicist and author who was a pioneer in the development of the laser and laser applications and was cofounder of the Stanford Research Institute's investigation into psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s for the CIA. This previously classified work, in what is now widely known as remote viewing, was published in Nature, The Proceedings of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the Proceedings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Targ has a B.S. in Physics from Queens College, and did graduate work in physics at Columbia University. He received two National Aeronautics and Space Administration awards for inventions and contributions in lasers and laser communications; and invitations were accepted in 1983 and 1984 to present remote viewing demonstrations, and to address the USSR Academy of Sciences on this research. In 1998 Targ retired from Lockheed Martin Missiles & Space Co. as a senior staff scientist, where he developed airborne laser systems for the detection of windshear. He now pursues ESP research in Palo Alto, California, and is also publishing special editions of classic books in psychical research. He is co-author of eight books dealing with the scientific investigation of psychic abilities, Buddhism, and a recent autobiography.
If you are interested in nonlocal consciousness, that part of us beyond space-time, called variously spiritual and psychic, you have probably heard of remote viewing. You know that what began as a laboratory protocol, created by a small group of scientists at Stanford Research Institute, has become part modern mental martial art, part awakening path, and part social movement.
IONS Senior Scientist Dean Radin interviews Russell Targ, one of the physicists responsible for top-secret, government-funded explorations of remote viewing at the Stanford Research Institute in the 1970's and 80's.
Targ discusses the commonalities among the healer, the mystic, the psychic, and the spy, and speaks of data for distant healing and nonlocal mind from the framework of information flow.
Fearless Living in Troubled Times . . . or, How to Get Out of Hell Free
by J. J. Hurtak and Russell Targ
In an effort to overcome the polarity of opposites and the accompanying suffering, Targ and Hurtak combine the wisdom of the East with the finding of quantum physics and uncover a middle ground that shows opposing sides are really the same.
