In 1984, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) conducted an experiment in which they attempted to have a “remote viewing session” of Mars using someone who claimed to be psychic.
They essentially wanted to find out whether the psychic, after being given just a set of coordinates, could explore the planet in their mind. The person was presented with a sealed envelope containing some information, but it wasn’t opened until after the session was over. They were asked to describe what they saw while thinking about the coordinates.
A transcript of the interview was made available via the CIA Electronic Reading Room after the agency released thousands of documents online, and it’s definitely more than a little unsettling. But don’t take our word for it — you can check it out for yourself below.
