Edwin C. May, PhD, was involved in the military intelligence psychic spying program, popularly referred to as Stargate, for over twenty years. During the last decade, he was the director of research for that program. In this context, he produced over a hundred scientific publications. His academic training was in experimental nuclear physics. He is coauthor of ESP Wars: East and West and also Anomalous Cognition: Remote Viewing Research and Theory. He is the coeditor of a two volume anthology titled Extrasensory Perception: Support, Skepticism, and Science.
Here he addresses misconceptions about the possibilities of remote viewing training. He states that statistical analysis of the U.S. government’s twenty-year remote viewing project failed to yield evidence that any training methods were successful. At least three different approaches were involved, including the methodology developed by Ingo Swann that has become the basis for several commercial training approaches. Nevertheless, May believes that many tips can aid remote viewers. Furthermore, having a supportive social environment is extremely helpful.
