Parapsychology & Bobby Fischer
Fischer, the Targ connection
and Remote Viewing
It is quite an historic family photo, and one that presses home the point of how fragile life and genius is. All three individuals in the above photo are today dead, and have been for some time now. Joan died in 1998 at age 60 of a brain hemorrhage. Elisabeth–who would go on to become a world famous psychiatrist–would die at the tragically young age of 40 of a brain tumor. And of course, we need not remind ourselves of how Bobby passed away at age 64.
In several previous blog entries I discussed the amazing Targ family (Joan married a world famous physicist and specialist in parapsychology –Russell Targ ) and their connection to CIA-funded research into remote viewing .:
Fortunately, Russell Targ is still alive and well and continues to do research and lecture. Below is a youtube video of a lecture Targ did some years back. Apparently before satellite technology was developed into a sophisticated means of remote-spying, both the Soviets and the Americans engaged in numerous parapsychological experiments in the area of remote-viewing.
As Targ starts to describe in the video (approximately 8 minutes into it) tasks such as locating fallen Soviet aircraft carrying nuclear weapons, discovering the interior schemes and contents of weapon factories, and similar James Bondish scenarios were given to those inside the secret programs.
All very fascinating! The research still continues today, though spy-satellite technology has gone so far forward that the CIA no longer funds such research. For many, it is more hokus-pokus than science…
