Star Gate Archives : Reports of the United States Government Sponsored Psi Program, 1972–1995.
About this item
During the Cold War, the U.S. government began testing paranormal claims under laboratory conditions in hopes of realizing intelligence applications for psychic phenomena. Thus began the project known as Star Gate––the largest in the history of parapsychological research, it received more than $20 million in funding and continued into the mid–1990s. This project archive includes all available documents generated by research contractor SRI International, and those provided by government officials. In volume 3, Psychokinesis (PK) is the purported ability to affect the physical world through mental means— a phenomenon reported since ancient times. The government’s interest was based in part upon intelligence reports from the former Soviet Union that claimed to have confirmed the existence of PK and its resulting military applications. The possibility of weaponized PK drove research funding. This volume describes the effects of PK on random number generators, and a few experiments measuring changes in biological and physical systems resulting from PK.
