Joseph McMoneagle: Talented Remote Viewer

In 1994, the TV show “Put to the Test” famous remote viewer Joe McMoneagle flew to Houston, a city he had never visited to show his remote viewing abilities. Joe, a career army man, began working for the CIA’s “Stargate” project that was using remote viewers, operating under strict guidelines, to provide additional information to aid US intelligence operations. Joe helped the army locate hostages in Iran, named the city and described the apartment where an American General was being held hostage, and helped discover a traitor in South Africa who was feeding information to the Soviets (Weeks, 1995). This is an impressive resume, and possibly the most successful remote viewer on record. Many doubt these abilities but McMoneagle is able to replicate his abilities over 450 times both in and out of the CIA (Weeks, 1995). The TV show put to the test asked him to show his abilities on live TV in order to show the world the powers of remote viewing. In Houston, Joe was put in a small room and taken through a procedure has done many times before. In a windowless, sound proof room, McMoneagle quiets his mind in order to see a target that has been chosen by the role of the dice. Four possible targets were chosen by a movie location scout who specifically chose locations based on their similarity to each other and their distinction. Photographs were taken and placed in envelopes far from accessibility to Joe and those conducting the experiment. A random woman then rolled the dice to see which photo would be the target location, which was then given to another woman, whom Joe had never met, to go to. Joe was shown a picture of the woman who was at the target and asked to describe where the woman was. With a quiet mind, McMoneagle sketched where he saw the woman and described aspects of the location such as a natural river that had been improved by man and of a bridge with foot traffic (“An anomalous cognition,” 1994). The target was the ship channel in Houston and Joe’s drawings and descriptions are eerily clear to the target. He describes having traces of all five senses aiding him in his description, about 80% of what he says turns out to be correct (“An anomalous cognition,” 1994). This is a very good example of how remote viewing works.
