Stephan Schwartz: Remote viewing researcher
Stephan A. Schwartz is a Distinguished Consulting Faculty of Saybrook University, a Fellow of the William James Center for Consciousness Studies, Sofia University, and a Research Associate of the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory of the Laboratories for Fundamental Research. He is the columnist for the journal Explore, and editor of the daily web publication Schwartzreport.net in both of which he covers trends that are affecting the future. He also writes regularly for The Huffington Post. His other academic and research appointments include: Senior Samueli Fellow for Brain, Mind and Healing of the Samueli Institute; founder and Research Director of the Mobius laboratory; Director of Research of the Rhine Research Center; and Senior Fellow of The Philosophical Research Society. Government appointments include: Special Assistant for Research and Analysis to the Chief of Naval Operations, consultant to the Oceanographer of the Navy. He has also been editorial staff member of National Geographic, Associate Editor of Sea Power. And staff reporter and feature writer for The Daily Press and The Times Herald. For 40 years he has been studying the nature of consciousness, both as an experimentalist and as a social researcher. This latter work has had three major purposes: 1) exploring the relationship between social values, and social outcomes; 2) studying the processes of social transformation, particularly how individuals and small groups can make change occur; 3) future trend analysis research. As Special Assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations, first Admiral Elmo Zumwalt and then Admiral James Holloway, Schwartz was part of the small group that in the 1970s, transformed the elitist conscription military of the Viet Nam era into the all-volunteer meritocracy armed forces the United States has today. For this work he received a Certificate of Commendation. He was also a member of the Secretary of Defense/MIT Discussion Group on Innovation, Technology, and the Future. Most recently his award-winning book, The 8 Laws of Change, presented two decades of research on how an individual can become an agent of social change. His experimental work has focused on exceptional human performance, particularly as it involves nonlocal consciousness, that aspect of consciousness independent of space and time. Schwartz is part of the small group that founded modern Remote Viewing research, and is the principal researcher studying the use of Remote Viewing in archaeology. Using Remote Viewing he discovered Cleopatra’s Palace, Marc Antony’s Timonium, ruins of the Lighthouse of Pharos, and sunken ships along the California coast, and in the Bahamas. He also uses remote viewing to examine the future. Since 1978, he has been getting people to remote view the year 2050, and out of that has come a complex trend analysis. His submarine experiment, Deep Quest, using Remote Viewing helped determine that nonlocal consciousness is not an electromagnetic phenomenon. Other areas of experimental study include research into creativity, meditation, and Therapeutic Intent/Healing. In all of these areas he has published more than 150 technical reports and papers, 20 book chapters and five non-fiction books.
