Russell Targ is a physicist and author who helped co-found the Stanford Research Institute’s investigation into psychic abilities.
He worked there in the 70s and 80s.
He also helped develop lasers and has had over 100 papers published on lasers, plasma physics, laser applications and electro-optics.
He was interviewed by Kim Greenhouse on It’s Rainmaking Time online talk radio where he stated “we’ve proven that psychic abilities are existing just as we’ve proven that lasers exist.”
He defines proof as “evidence so strong that it would be unreasonable to deny it.”
In his book, The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities, he offers two types of proof: (1) data from experiments showing statistical reliability, (2) stories from the lab on successful experiments.
He explained that ESP is a normal way of functioning for us. It is an ordinary ability. People can learn to close their eyes and see things in a remote location or in the future. Remote viewing can be learned at a weekend workshop, Targ said. We can describe things on the other side of the world as easily as describing things in the next room. Seeing the future is equally simple.
Are you listening? If you want to find Bigfoot, if you want to know how they live and what they think about, you can do it from the comfort of the easy chair in your living room.
Likewise, if you want to know where you might be able to find them, you can learn this from remote viewing.
Russell Targ says everyone has psychic ability. Everyone! Remote viewing, he says, is a “protocol”. He doesn’t make a differentiation between psychic ability and remote viewing.
“Naming and grasping are the enemies of ESP,” he said. This was taught in ancient Buddhist literature. We must be careful to stay with psychic impressions, and not verge into guessing at things.
“Everybody can do psychic abilites to some extent, but some people are better at it than others,” Targ said. Advanced psychics are able to describe images in great detail. This is an intellectual descriptive skill that can be improved. There’s also an element of great talent as well.
He makes a differentiation between ESP and string theory as described by Michio Kaku. He says that “String theory is a model for the behavior of elementary particles, and that model may or may not be correct. The evidence for ESP is much better than the evidence for string theory. . . . . There’s now been fifty years of research showing that people can describe things a thousand miles away just as well as things in the laboratory.”
Psychic ability is non-local. There’s no degradation for visions of situations, places or events on the other side of the world as well as for those the future. This is mental time and space travel! Targ stated that “the future can affect the past.” Think about that! We live in a “non-local space/time” environment. You can learn more on this at Russell Targ’s website: ESP Research, or via his books.
No psychic education, for most of us
In using your psychic impressions, you’ll describe any images that pop up into your awareness. You’ll be using the right side of your brain, not the left side that is more pragmatic and intellectual in nature. In our schools we were trained to use the left side of our brains (language, math, science) whereas right-side functioning through art and intuition was not emphasized in our educational training. That’s what we need to develop in order to have usable psychic vision.
Maybe I’m good at this because I grew up daydreaming through my classes yet still was able to understand most of the lessons!
How I’ve applied my psychic ability to my Bigfoot research
What I’ve done is to scan the forest in search of a Bigfoot, then I’ve contacted that forest person via psychic thought. I always receive a response, though most are not immediately friendly.
One was a female Bigfoot who wasn’t open to talking to me because she’d been told to stay away from humans. I sensed some fear, and she said she’d have to ask her male companion for advice. At the same time, she became interested in being friendly with me on the psychic level.
Another was an elderly male who lives on a hillside near where I live. He has a home there, and watches people passing by on the river and the highway. He has no interest in further human contact.
Bigfoots have been taught that human beings are untrustworthy and dangerous. Can you blame them for thinking that? They’ve been shot at by frightened human beings. Their experiences with humans include people being frightened and running or using firearms. These stories are related between forest people and the young are told to stay away from us. They watch our civilization grow and expand while their territory is gradually made smaller. Maybe they don’t even like us! Maybe there’s an element of prejudice involved! I’ve had more than one Bigfoot tell me that they don’t want any contact with fearful humans. They would be more open to habituation experiences with people who aren’t afraid of them.
Psychic Bigfoot researchers
I suggest that any Bigfoot research team would benefit from having a psychic on board. Those of us who are already interested in contacting forest people and creating relationships can work on developing our connection to the psychic realm. Others who are not confident about their psychic research talents can team up with those who have some proven skill in this area.
Why I wrote this post
At the beginning of the interview Russell Targ stated that he’s “taking off the kid gloves” and at his age has decided that the right thing to do is to tell people the truth about psychic abilities. I’m in the same frame of mind. It is time I stop trying to fit into the crowd of Bigfoot researchers who insist on learning only from physical evidence. Yes, that’s one kind of proof. However that’s not all there is to it.
My goal as a Bigfoot researcher has always been to learn to communicate with them. I want to create friendships with these forest people, to learn how they think, and what they think. For me, psychic ability, ESP, is a valuable tool for Bigfoot research. Even if the forest people have a different language, I can clearly understand them through ESP.
