Stephan Schwartz, Research Associate, of Cognitive Sciences Laboratory of the Laboratories for Fundamental Research, is one of the world's experts on the practical applications of remote viewing and other aspects of extraordinary human functioning. For almost twenty years he was the research director and chairman of the Mobius Society. The laboratory carried out research into remote viewing, creativity, therapeutic intent, and other areas of human performance.
Stephan is the Editor of "The Schwartz Report," an international daily web publication. He is a former Special Assistant for Research and Analysis to the Chief of Naval Operations, Editor of Seapower Magazine, and staffer of National Geographic Society. He is a founder of the Society for Anthropology of Consciousness, the International Remote Viewing Association, and the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine, and is a member of the Parapsychology Association.
Schwartz discussed his work on non-locality, consciousness and remote viewing. Evidence shows that some part of our consciousness exists outside of time/space, he said, and all consciousness is interconnected and interdependent. This connectivity allows for morphogenic fields to be created, he added.
It was Edgar Cayce's "distant viewing" of the Dead Sea Scrolls (before their discovery) that first got Schwartz interested in remote viewing. As developed in the 1970s, remote viewing, which he described as a kind of "mental yoga," provides information that can be independently validated. Moments of religious ecstasy, genius, and remote viewing are all similar experiences, but they are modulated by their context and intention, he explained.
