Cosmos Connection ~ 01/21/17 ~ Theresa J. Morris & Janet Kira Lessin ~ Project Stargate Interviews

Theresa (TJ) and Janet Kira, both lifelong experiencers, discovered they were part of the Stargate program.  What is Project Stargate? TJ & Janet came in conscious and psychic.  They drew attention to themselves by the powers that be just because of who they were/are.  TJ’s story is very much like Steven Spielberg’s “Taken”.  Janet’s story is much like “Jupiter Ascending”.  Both women have elements of both movies (and then some) in their life movies.

Janet Kira and TJ are in the middle of the journey as they interview each other and connect the dots. As they remember that which has been forgotten, recall what lies beneath the surface and repressed by the process of coming into human form in 3D physicality in humanoid avatars, they uncover the mystery.  Through this process they uncover the hidden elements of Project Stargate and the public persona that exists on the internet in hyperspace.

Join TJ and Janet as they reveal elements of the Secret Space Program and breakaway civilizations that haven’t been heard before.  We repeat this process regularly on the Cosmos Connection till truth be known far and wide by all and a win-for-all possibility is discovered.

The StarGate Project[1] was the code name for a secret U.S. Army unit established in 1978 at Fort Meade, Maryland, by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and SRI International (a California contractor) to investigate the potential for psychic phenomena in military and domestic intelligence applications. The Project, and its precursors and sister projects, went by various code names — GONDOLA WISH, GRILL FLAME, CENTER LANE, SUN STREAK, SCANATE — until 1991 when they were consolidated and rechristened as “Stargate Project”.

Stargate Project work primarily involved remote viewing, the purported ability to psychically “see” events, sites, or information from a great distance.[2] The project was overseen until 1987 by Lt. Frederick Holmes “Skip” Atwater, an aide and “psychic headhunter” to Maj. Gen. Albert Stubblebine, and later president of the Monroe Institute.[3] The unit was small-scale, comprising about 15 to 20 individuals, and was run out of “an old, leaky wooden barracks”.[4]

The Stargate Project was terminated and declassified in 1995 after a CIA report concluded that it was never useful in any intelligence operation. Information provided by the program was vague, included irrelevant and erroneous data, and there was reason to suspect that its project managers had changed the reports so they would fit background cues.[5] The program was featured in the 2004 book and 2009 film entitled The Men Who Stare at Goats,[6][7][8][9] although neither mentions it by name.


Information in the United States on psychic research in some foreign countries was sketchy and poorly detailed, based mostly on rumor or innuendo from second-hand or tertiary reporting, attributed to both reliable and unreliable disinformation sources from the Soviet Union.[10][11]

The CIA and DIA decided they should investigate and know as much about it as possible. Various programs were approved yearly and re-funded accordingly. Reviews were made semi-annually at the Senate and House select committee level. Work results were reviewed, and remote viewing was attempted with the results being kept secret from the “viewer”. It was thought that if the viewer was shown they were incorrect it would damage the viewer’s confidence and skill. This was standard operating procedure throughout the years of military and domestic remote viewing programs. Feedback to the remote viewer of any kind was rare; it was kept classified and secret.[12]

Remote viewing attempts to sense unknown information about places or events. Normally it is performed to detect current events, but during military and domestic intelligence applications viewers claimed to sense things in the future, experiencing precognition.[13]



In 1970, United States intelligence sources believed that the Soviet Union was spending 60 million rubles annually on “psychotronic” research. In response to claims that the Soviet program had produced results, the CIA initiated funding for a new program known as SCANATE (“scan by coordinate”) in the same year.[14] Remote viewing research began in 1972 at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in Menlo Park, California.[14] Proponents[who?] of the research said that a minimum accuracy rate of 65% required by the clients was often exceeded in the later experiments.[14] == Parapsychologists Russell Targ and Harold Puthoff began testing psychics for SRI in 1972, including one who would later become an international celebrity, Israeli Uri Geller. Their apparently successful results garnered interest within the Department of Defense. Ray Hyman, professor of psychology at the University of Oregon, was asked by Air Force psychologist Lt. Col. Austin W. Kibler (1930-2008) — then Director of Behavioral Research for ARPA — to go to SRI and investigate. He was to specifically evaluate Geller. Hyman’s report to the government was that Geller was a “complete fraud” and as a consequence Targ and Puthoff lost their government contract to do further work with him. The result was a publicity tour for Geller, Targ and Puthoff, to seek private funding for further research work on Geller.[15]

In 1977, the Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence (ACSI) Systems Exploitation Detachment (SED) started the GONDOLA WISH program to “evaluate potential adversary applications of remote viewing.”[14] Army Intelligence then formalized this in mid-1978 as an operational program GRILL FLAME, based in buildings 2560 and 2561 at Fort Meade, MD (INSCOM “Detachment G”).[14]


In early 1979 the research at SRI was integrated into GRILL FLAME, which was redesignated INSCOM CENTER LANE Project (ICLP) in 1983.[14] In 1984 the existence of the program was reported by Jack Anderson, and in that year it was unfavorably received by the National Academy of Sciences National Research Council.[14] In late 1985 the Army funding was terminated, but the program was redesignated SUN STREAK and funded by the DIA’s Scientific and Technical Intelligence Directorate (office code DT-S).[14]


In 1991 most of the contracting for the program was transferred from SRI to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), with Edwin May controlling 70% of the contractor funds and 85% of the data. Its security was altered from Special Access Program (SAP) to Limited Dissemination (LIMDIS), and it was given its final name, STAR GATE.[14]

Closure (1995)[edit]

In 1995, the defense appropriations bill directed that the program be transferred from DIA to CIA oversight. The CIA commissioned a report by American Institutes for Research that found that remote viewing had not been proved to work by a psychic mechanism, and said it had not been used operationally. The CIA subsequently cancelled and declassified the program.[14]

In 1995, the project was transferred to the CIA and a retrospective evaluation of the results was done. The appointed panel consisted primarily of Jessica Utts and Ray Hyman. Hyman had produced an unflattering report on Uri Geller and SRI for the government two decades earlier, but the psychologist David Marks noted that as Utts had published papers with Edwin May “she was not independent of the research team. Her appointment to the review panel is puzzling; an evaluation is likely to be less than partial when an evaluator is not independent of the program under investigation.”[2] A report by Utts claimed the results were evidence of psychic functioning, however Hyman in his report argued Utts’ conclusion that ESP had been proven to exist, especially precognition, was premature and the findings had not been independently replicated.[16] Hyman came to the conclusion:

Psychologists, such as myself, who study subjective validation find nothing striking or surprising in the reported matching of reports against targets in the Stargate data. The overwhelming amount of data generated by the viewers is vague, general, and way off target. The few apparent hits are just what we would expect if nothing other than reasonable guessing and subjective validation are operating.[17]

A later report by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) also came to a negative conclusion. Joe Nickell has written:

Other evaluators-two psychologists from AIR assessed the potential intelligence-gathering usefulness of remote viewing. They concluded that the alleged psychic technique was of dubious value and lacked the concreteness and reliability necessary for it to be used as a basis for making decisions or taking action. The final report found “reason to suspect” that in “some well publicised cases of dramatic hits” the remote viewers might have had “substantially more background information” than might otherwise be apparent.[18]

According to AIR, which performed a review of the project, no remote viewing report ever provided actionable information for any intelligence operation.[5][19]

Based upon the collected findings, which recommended a higher level of critical research and tighter controls, the CIA terminated the 20 million dollar project, citing a lack of documented evidence that the program had any value to the intelligence community. Time magazine stated in 1995 three full-time psychics were still working on a $500,000-a-year budget out of Fort Meade, Maryland, which would soon close.[19]

David Marks in his book The Psychology of the Psychic (2000) discussed the flaws in the Stargate Project in detail.[2] Marks wrote that there were six negative design features of the experiments. The possibility of cues or sensory leakage was not ruled out, no independent replication, some of the experiments were conducted in secret making peer-review impossible. Marks noted that the judge Edwin May was also the principal investigator for the project and this was problematic making huge conflict of interest with collusion, cuing and fraud being possible. Marks concluded the project was nothing more than a “subjective delusion” and after two decades of research it had failed to provide any scientific evidence for the legitimacy of remote viewing.[2]

The Stargate Project was claimed to have been terminated in 1995 following an independent review which concluded:

The foregoing observations provide a compelling argument against continuation of the program within the intelligence community. Even though a statistically significant effect has been observed in the laboratory, it remains unclear whether the existence of a paranormal phenomenon, remote viewing, has been demonstrated. The laboratory studies do not provide evidence regarding the origins or nature of the phenomenon, assuming it exists, nor do they address an important methodological issue of inter-judge reliability.

Further, even if it could be demonstrated unequivocally that a paranormal phenomenon occurs under the conditions present in the laboratory paradigm, these conditions have limited applicability and utility for intelligence gathering operations. For example, the nature of the remote viewing targets are vastly dissimilar, as are the specific tasks required of the remote viewers. Most importantly, the information provided by remote viewing is vague and ambiguous, making it difficult, if not impossible, for the technique to yield information of sufficient quality and accuracy of information for actionable intelligence. Thus, we conclude that continued use of remote viewing in intelligence gathering operations is not warranted.

2017 Records on line

In January 2017 the CIA published records online of the Stargate Project as part of the CREST Archive.


The Stargate Project created a set of protocols designed to make the research of clairvoyance and out-of-body experiences more scientific, and to minimize as much as possible session noise and inaccuracy. The term “remote viewing” emerged as shorthand to describe this more structured approach to clairvoyance. Project Stargate would only receive a mission after all other intelligence attempts, methods, or approaches had already been exhausted.[21]

It was reported that at peak manpower there were over 22 active military and civilian remote viewers providing data. People leaving the project were not replaced. When the project closed in 1995 this number had dwindled down to three. One was using tarot cards. According to Joseph McMoneagle, “The Army never had a truly open attitude toward psychic functioning”. Hence, the use of the term “giggle factor”[22] and the saying, “I wouldn’t want to be found dead next to a psychic.”[23]

The CIA Star Gate Remote Viewng program

Project Star gate is the collective name for advanced psychic functioning or Remote viewing experiments and programs that were undertaken for over twenty years to create a trainable, repeatable, operational and if at all possible, accurate method of psychic spying or information gathering for the U.S. Military and intelligence agencies (CIA, NSA, DIA).

What is Remote Viewing?

Overview & Navigation:
Because of the size I have split this page into two distinct areas now for ease of use. these are;

Area1 (This page)- Remote Viewing examples from the Star Gate Archives.

Area2 – interesting documents from the CIA released Star Gate archives detailing many experiments and the science and theory behind Remote Viewing.

The start of Remote Viewing.

The U.S. Intel, Worried by the expansion of Russian research into physic functioning in the late 1960’s and early 70’s, took the decision to explore psychic functioning. This is partly due to reports that surfaced in the early ’70’s like this one below:

Owner: Rand Corporation
Author: P.T. Van Dyke & M.L Juncosa

1973 Rand – Paranormal Phenomena – Net assessment Study

“The purpose of the 33 page document was to determine whether paranormal phenomena existed, how the Russians were investigating it and how this tallied with American efforts”.


Due to reports like this and the book Psychic Discoveries behind the Iron Curtain, SRI (Stanford Research institute) was contacted and contracted to test the waters and to see if there was anything viable to psychic functioning and the rest is history as they say. Click here to see some of the early SRI experiments with Uri Geller in the lab (circa 1970’s).

From 1972 – to its disclosure in 1995 the American Intelligence and military machines used and expanded forms of ESP or psychic functioning for intelligence gathering purposes. This mainly settled on a form of PSI functioning known as remote viewing.

The agencies involved in this twenty year and $20M program include a huge assortment of spaghetti soup name agencies like: FBI, CIA, DIA, assorted military and government departments and agencies, many leading science labs and probably many others with names that cant be mentioned and that are yet to be uncovered.

In 1994/1995 when key players started to leave their military/intelligence careers behind them (the military viewers and Brussel Targ’s FOIA request). It was decided to take the entire program history public to ‘head-off’ the coming media interest. A decision was taken to publicly validate the Star gate program for its accuracy of data and efficiency – hence to sanitize and clean the entire Star gate records for all those involved in-light of the looming media disclosure. After all no-one wants to be associated with large dollar spending on psychic programs that don’t work! – do they?

With this the program went officially public in 1995 just after it had been turned over to the CIA. The CIA then through its FOIA system released 12,000 files totaling 89,000 pages of material form the entire twenty year history of the program.

Within this site I have and continue to post the more interesting and useful STARGATE documents released through the FOIA from the CIA. I have picked out papers, documents and when I can, sessions that can be used by the remote viewing community and people learning to be better viewers.

There are many documents and remote viewing sessions within the FOIA archives that don’t show the actual target or the feedback, therefore although good for a typical remote viewing method and format example, these have no use in showing the accuracy of the session – these I have not included.

Bios and details of many of the key players in the twenty-year Star gate program can be found here!
