Last night G and I watched the movie Suspect Zero on DVD. It's a pretty wild murder mystery starring Aaron Eckhart and Ben Kingsley. Just by the star power alone, I would have thought that this movie would have been more talked about. However, it apparently failed to do well at the box office.
The movie was released in 2004 and I only learned about it a few months ago from a friend of mine. Now to be honest, the movie was just okay. What fascinated me the most was the DVD extras, which explains the factual elements around Remote Viewing that are contained in the movie.
I can't explain this very well, but basically my understanding of Remote Viewing is that it's a process where a person at a remote location can gather information about something, someone, or an event that may have already happened or may happen in the future at another location. It doesn't matter how far away. The information is gathered by means other than through the ordinary five senses, basically a type of ESP. It seems pretty wild in the movie and they talk about how the military and CIA used it during the Cold War to gather information about the Soviet Union. Here is an article.
So as you're watching the movie, it sounds kind of crazy, but then the DVD extras show interviews with people who actually participated in the US Government's Stargate Project. Many documents were declassified; thus the basis for the movie. Many more documents are still classified and supposedly the program was shut down around 1995. It makes me wonder if maybe there is still some program now.
The paranormal has always fascinated me. I remember seeing the Amazing Kreskin as a kid. I went with a friend and her parents. He told all of us in the audience to close our eyes and imagine a shape. He was going to attempt to put the image in all of our heads. I closed my eyes and saw a circle with a triangle in it. That seemed bizarre to me, because that was two shapes. After a few minutes, he told us what he was thinking. It was circle with a triangle! I thought that was so cool and a bit creepy at the same time.
Before then and since then, there have been enough unexplainable things that have happened to me and people that I know, that I do believe that there is something to the paranormal. I believe that our perception extends far beyond the five senses. What about you?
Oh and interestingly enough, Kreskin has predicted who will win the presidential election, but has yet to reveal it. Maybe we will learn something soon.
