ESPA (Extra-Sensory Perception Activities) can be a useful tool in both military and intelligence operations – and many countries do seek to use them to their advantage (e.g. the US, UK and China are fine examples of it) – however, when ones reads about how governments use psychics and mediums and often fail, one can't help but to identify the main problem behind the failure; i.e. the method employed. This week we are going to start exploring this most interesting instrument that can be used in the New Warfare Era.
This blog has agreed with those Military experts who defend that warfare has evolved and that we can no longer apply old rules, laws and methods to it. Conventional warfare (where conventional weapons and battlefield tactics are used in open confrontation between two or more states) seems to have been lowered in status, and now we have Urban Warfare (a much more complex way of waging war, due to its ever changing tactics, increased levels of civilian casualties and high destruction of civilian objects), Psychological Warfare, on our way to Space Warfare and perhaps Psychic Warfare (if the decade-old method is tweaked).
The first misconception about the use of psychics and mediums is that you need to place them in a controlled environment “placing an individual in a controlled darkened environment, descending him or her into a self-hypnotic trance and causing him/her to vocally describe images and other impressions that came to mind” (source).
The United States Army, during the Cold War for instance, believed that through this method the operatives could remote view Russian locations, for instance, and predict strikes against X or Y target. But, alas, this method seems to have revealed itself as highly ineffective.
If any government truly wishes to draft citizens with special abilities it needs to purge itself from obsolete ideas like “we need scientists and the academia to validate our secret project”. With all due respect for the brilliant minds who spend years studying mathematics, physics et al; they cannot alone present a solution to the problem due to their limited vision of things (since, generally speaking, their mind has been formatted to think within scientific boundaries). Therefore, the government also needs individuals enriched by empirical knowledge – civilians who delve in mysticism, of any kind (though a small group of people stemming from 7 different regions would be optimal: Celtic mystics, Christian mystics, Jewish mystics, Muslim mystic, Hindu mystics, African mystics and Shamans) – to clarify about the most propitious environments for the psychic to successfully operate.
The success of a medium lies in his freedom of mind and action. Confinement is, therefore, an ineffective method – a cold laboratory, surrounded by people (including a sceptic of any sort), is not a good place to conduct ESPA. I understand that scientists have the need to document every single aspect in a project, and that they are obsessed with statistics, but in this case what matters the most: the stats or the results? The process or the end result?
Instead of closing the psychics/mediums in a room or building, send them out into the world. Let them roam free to sense the air, to smell the targets, to feel the energies; and upon their return provide them with the usual material (SIGINT, HUMINT, OSINT, whatever they need to know) and they will produce the intended results.
Complex Level of Warfare
Of course, the country that manages to assemble the most effective Psychic Unit will have the greatest advantage over the others. And if we add this to a possible future Exopolitical alliance (with all the things that such a partnership entails), then we will have a very complex military web that will result in an extremely intrinsic level of warfare – imagine a multidimensional war where an conventional, urban and Space war, a psychological and psychic war are fought at the same time.
Moreover, the more a psychic/mediums uses his abilities, the more he will expand them; the more he expands them, the more the government will feel encouraged to produce a superior quality of soldiers and operatives – again through different means than those tried up to now – what could then be the result? A war between Psychic Soldiers. But how would such war look like and would it benefit mankind? Could we be on the path of a “cleaner” war - should we even dare aspiring to such a thing?
