Edward Arthur Dames joined the United States Army in 1967, enlisting as a paratrooper at the age of seventeen. After serving one year as an Airborne Infantryman, Mr. Dames transferred to the Army Security Agency, and was assigned to the Far East to support National Security Agency missions in that part of the world. In 1974, Mr. Dames returned home to attend college, quickly earning a four-year scholarship for academic excellence. After three years as an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, where he double-majored in Bioelectronics and Chinese, Mr. Dames joined Berkeley’s ROTC program, becoming a Distinguished Military Graduate, in 1978.

Newly commissioned as a second lieutenant in Military Intelligence, Mr. Dames was sent to be trained as a tactical electronic warfare officer and, for three years, was assigned to Germany to intercept and jam Soviet and Czech communications. From there he was recruited by a scientific and technical military intelligence “black unit”, ultimately to direct clandestine operations against high-value foreign targets. He remained in deep cover, travelling worldwide under assumed identities

In 1981, Mr. Dames’ life changed forever. The Soviets had been secretly developing a sophisticated biological weapons program. Mr. Dames and his elite military group were tasked to identify the components of these deadly, toxic weapons. Covert operatives that he had recruited were unable to penetrate the Soviets’ wall of secrecy. Out of desperation, he contemplated the use of psychics to help uncover this critical information. In reality, the U.S. Army was already considering the possibility of employing psychics for intelligence collection, but very few high- ranking officers were willing to risk their careers over the stigma associated with such a project.

Nevertheless, the U.S. Army began a funded study at the Stanford Research Institute to systematise psychic phenomena and develop a working tool by which “non-psychics” would also be able to utilise psychic functioning for the purpose of acquiring reliable and consistent information. Mr. Dames became the operations and training officer of this team, which ultimately achieved its goal by developing the technique now known as Remote Viewing.

Back in Washington D.C., in 1984, Mr. Dames and his team applied their remote viewing abilities to the toughest national intelligence problems, such as locating and tracking international terrorists and their hostages and, finally, uncovering key data surrounding the Soviet offensive biological warfare program. The results of these efforts were briefed to Congress and the U.S. President. For his work, Mr. Dames was awarded two Army Meritorious Service Medals and the Legion of Merit. Additionally, he was personally credited by the Defense Intelligence Agency with penetrating the Soviet Defense Counciltin that agency’s words, “a singularly profound act.” Over the years, the remote viewing information that he collected continued to be secretly used by numerous government agencies, and by all branches of the military

As a result of increasing turmoil and turnover in the ranks of top Army intelligence leadership during the late 1980’s, “channelers” and psychic charlatans were recruited to co-mingle with the trained professionals in the unit. Worse yet, various politicians, desiring information about their political and personal futures, began to approach the project, turning it into a “three-ring circus.” Rather than being forced to stand by and witness the disintegration of his unit’s effectiveness and the loss of remote viewing technology, Major Dames retired from the U.S. Army, taking the original team’s best and brightest with him to form his Beverly Hills, California based company, PSI TECH.

In late 1991, during the Gulf War, PSI TECH provided intelligence on Saddam Hussein to the National Security Council, and located Iraq’s hidden biological warfare stockpiles for the United Nations. These endeavours earned Mr. Dames and PSI TECH the attention of the world press. Currently, PSI TECH’s clients range from the leaders of Fortune 500 corporations, to academics in science, medicine and law, as well as select individuals from the private sector who undergo the firm’s specialized training. Since 1983, when Mr. Dames began teaching and employing these incredible skills, he has perfected remote viewing methods and techniques, employing his Technical Remote Viewing training and operations protocols, which guarantee his commercial clients an unprecedented 100% data accuracy rate.

Ed’s personal interests include human potential, natural history, martial arts and physical fitness. He is fluent in Chinese Mandarin.

The world’s foremost remote viewing teacher, and creator of Technical Remote Viewing, Major Edward A. Dames, United States Army (ret.), is a decorated military intelligence officer and an original member of the U.S. Army prototype remote viewing training program. He served as both training and operations officer for the U.S. government’s TOP SECRET psychic espionage unit.

Background:

Edward Dames is a ROTC Distinguished Military Graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. Between 1979 and 1983, Major Dames served as an electronic warfare officer and scientific and technical intelligence officer.In 1982, Ingo Swann, under the direction of Dr. Harold Puthoff, head of the Remote Viewing Laboratory at Stanford Research Institute, realized a breakthrough. Swann developed a working model for how the unconscious mind communicates information to conscious awareness. To test the model, the Army sent Major Dames and five others to Swann as a prototype trainee group.The results exceeded all expectations – even those of Swann. In six months, Major Dames’ teammates were producing psychically-derived data with more consistency and accuracy than had ever been seen in similar intelligence projects using even the best ‘natural’ psychics. In late 1983, the team parted company with Swann. As the new operations and training officer for the unit, Dames took this breakthrough skill, dubbed ‘Coordinate Remote Viewing,’ and began a new phase of research, testing, and evaluation in order to both uncover its true capabilities, and to perfect its application to fit crucial intelligence collection needs.

Major Dames receives his first Meritorious Service Medal

Citation Details: For distinguishing himself by outstanding meritorious achievement as targeting and analysis officer, United States Army Systems Exploitation Detachment, from 5 January 1983 to 30 September 1984. CPT Dames identified and confirmed the existence of an entirely new Soviet offensive weapon, and then personally briefed senior officials of the National Intelligence Agencies regarding the significance of this new Soviet capability. As a result of CPT Dames’ efforts in uncovering this program, new resources are being programmed to develop the appropriate defense measures to deal with this new and highly disturbing Soviet capability. CPT Dames’ achievements are clearly outstanding and reflect utmost credit upon himself, his organization, and the United States Army.Major Dames supplied the U.S. President and NSC with proof that the Soviets had clandestinely developed a new generation of biochemical warfare agents. As a result, Congress approved funds for a new DIA Biological Threat Analysis Center. Under the standard military rigor and discipline, combined with a team approach and countless hours of applying the new tool against a wide range of operational and training targets, ‘psychic intelligence’ (PSIINT) methods and techniques became dependable enough to be considered by some individuals in leadership positions for use in support of life-or-death missions, or special operations in which the application of deadly (military) force was authorized.

Major Dames receives his second Meritorious Service Medal

Citation Details: For distinguishing himself by outstanding meritorious achievement as targeting and analysis officer, United States Army Systems Exploitation Detachment, from 1 June 1983 to 1 November 1984. CPT Dames identified a new and unique Soviet weapons program. The national security implications of CPT Dames’ findings have been characterized by top U.S. policymakers as revolutionary, and were briefed by him to officials in all the national intelligence agencies, the Secretary of the Army, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and members of the National Security Council and Congress, who subsequently briefed the president of the United States. CPT Dames’ achievements are clearly outstanding and reflect utmost credit upon himself, his organization and the United States Army.The Army passed control of the ‘psi spy’ unit to the Defense Intelligence Agency in 1986. DIA is an analytical agency, and has no charter to collect intelligence – it did not know what to do with the unit. The unit was ferreted away within DIA’s Scientific and Technical Intelligence Directorate.Dale Graff, a civilian, was assigned by DIA to administratively oversee the unit. Since the unit was no longer being utilized to any real operational potential, Major Dames’ focus shifted almost entirely to developing advanced remote viewing techniques. Quietly, however, he also utilized the team to support projects on behalf of clients in the classified research community. By 1989, civilian Dale Graff, through a complete lack of understanding about remote viewing capabilities and ‘real world’ applications, began recruiting natural psychics as additional members of the team – an act that effectively administered the coup de grace to the unit’s value – and future – as an intelligence collection asset.In the same year, Major Dames brought remote viewing technology out of the military and to the public. He formed a company that started out by hiring virtually all of the original military remote viewers, who were still on active duty. Today, all of the now evolved, enabling remote viewing expertise and knowledge resides in the civilian sector, where Dames continues to teach the techniques and employ this powerful tool in commercial operations.

Major Dames receives The Legion of Merit

Citation Details: For distinguishing himself by exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services as an intelligence officer in the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command and the Defense Intelligence Agency from 1 October 1982 to 1 October 1991. His insightful threat analysis has contributed significantly to this country’s ability to maintain its military superiority. Major Dames’ distinguished performance of duty throughout this period represents outstanding accomplishments in the most cherished traditions of the United States Army and reflects the utmost credit upon himself and the military service.Major Dames retired from the U.S. Army in 1991 and began a full-time effort to advance remote viewing technology, and to create teams of professional civilian Remote Viewers to work on complex projects.In 1992, Ingo Swann wrote a letter to The American Society of Psychical Research, which included, among other things, a brief summary of his knowledge about Ed:

“He [Major Dames] was Targeting Director (sic) of the U.S. Intelligence Electronic & Security Command (sic), and assistant director of special operations (sic) in the DIA Directorate of Scientific and Technical Intelligence, and an area controller of special operations (sic) of Headquarters Department of the Army. For several years, he was mandated to brief on a daily and/or weekly basis DIA, NSA, other agencies, and, when circumstances required, the President and his advisors.”

Major Dames released his initial VHS RV training tape set in 1997. Unfortunately, a VHS tape does not allow for a menu system and, therefore, cannot provide an efficiently structured method of presenting RV training targets along with the necessary feedback. By today’s standards, attempting to learn remote viewing from VHS tapes is neither practical nor effective. Attempting to adapt RV training to a CD format does not overcome this problem.From 2000 through 2004, Major Dames held remote viewing workshops around the country in an effort to build a base of vocationally oriented remote viewers.Finally, in September, 2004, Major Dames released the long awaited, groundbreaking Learn Remote Viewing 4-disk DVD course (www.LearnRV.com). The Learn Remote Viewing course is now the most advanced RV training program in the world, incorporating 17 years of evolved, post-‘psi spy’ operational knowledge. The training set utilizes the natural DVD menu system to provide a structured, comfortably paced training environment, with an effective mix of training targets, lectures, and feedback. Additionally, a free online forum is manned daily by the teacher himself and his staff of professional remote viewers, providing unlimited assistance to students during and after their training. No other remote viewing training course provides this degree of support and educational excellence.Today, Major Dames remains the leader in this brave new world – a world without secrets. He continues to advance Remote Viewing technology, and to teach the latest remote viewing techniques via the LearnRV DVD course and the RV Community Forum. And, as always, he devotes much of his free time to humanitarian projects.

Remote viewing teacher Major Ed Dames discussed his previous prediction of a major quake in Japan, and shared insights into forthcoming quakes, the solar ‘Kill Shot,’ and safe places to live. In a 2003 show with Art Bell, he predicted a massive earthquake would hit Japan and damage a nuclear reactor. (He was off on the year, which he told Art would be in late Spring, 2005.) He also shared this prediction with Japanese TV (related video clip).

Dames and his team have remote viewed what he calls the “next, mass human death-causing earthquake,”– something akin to what we just witnessed in Japan. Though he couldn’t name a date, the site of this will be the New Madrid Fault and the Wabash Valley seismic zone (see map below), and St. Louis, Missouri will be particularly hard hit with the most deaths, he declared, adding that we might even see the Mississippi River change its course.

The solar ‘Kill Shot,’ which will cause the collapse of Earth’s magnetic field and lead to huge power outages, will begin within the next couple of months, with dangerous activity from the sun continuing through late 2012, he outlined. According to Dames, the safest places in North America to deal with the disastrous upcoming earth changes include Alberta, Saskatchewan, parts of Manitoba, parts of east Oregon, Arizona, parts of New Mexico, the southern portion of the Appalachian Mountains, and an area west of the Great Lakes.

20 May 2012          06:52 ET

An earthquake in northern Italy has killed at least four people and caused serious damage to buildings in several towns, local officials say.

The magnitude-six quake struck in the middle of the night, about 35km (22 miles) north of the city of Bologna.

The four victims were killed by falling masonry. Italian media report two more quake-related deaths.

The tremor caused “significant damage to the cultural heritage” of Emilia Romagna region, the government said.

The culture ministry said firefighters and civil protection workers were now examining damaged historic buildings.

It was the worst tremor to hit the country since the L’Aquila quake killed nearly 300 people in central Italy in 2009.

‘Big bang’

Northern Italy quake

map
  • Kills at least four and damages buildings across Emilia Romagna region
  • San Felice sul Panaro: 15th-Century castle severely damaged
  • Finale Emilia: bell tower collapses, crushing cars
  • Sant’Agostino: ceramic factory destroyed, killing two employees
  • Tecopress di Dosso: worker dies when a factory roof collapses
  • Buonacompra: historic church destroyed
  • Tremor also felt in cities of Bologna, Modena, Ferrara, Rovigo, Verona and Mantua

The earthquake struck at a relatively shallow depth of 10km just after 04:00 local time (02:00 GMT).

It was felt across a large swathe of northern Italy, including the cities of Bologna, Ferrara, Verona and Mantua and as far away as Milan and Venice.

The tremor forced many terrified residents into the streets.

Two people were killed in Sant’Agostino when a ceramics factory collapsed.

The mother of one of the victims told local media that “he wasn’t supposed to be there. He changed shifts with a friend”.

Another person – believed to be a Moroccan national – was killed in Ponte Rodoni do Bondeno.

In Tecopress di Dosso, one worker died when the roof of foundry collapsed, Rai News24 reports.

Local media also say a woman died near Bologna, with reports suggesting that she may have had a heart attack. Another victim was an elderly woman in Sant-Agostino.

About 50 people were injured – but none seriously, reports say.

Aftershocks were reported soon after the quake.

“I was woken at around 4am by the quake, it was strong and lasted up to a minute, maybe more,” Frankie Thompson, a UK travel journalist in Bologna, told the BBC.

“Church bells were set off spontaneously… followed by an eerie silence. Small aftershocks kept coming and going until maybe 5:50am when a stronger tremor shook us again but not as long and dramatic as the first,” she added.

Britain’s David Trew, who is staying in a hotel in Ferrara, told the BBC: “I was sound asleep when the tremors started. I was having quite a vivid dream, and the first few seconds of the quake became part of the dream.

“As I began to wake up it took me a few seconds to realise that it was actually happening for real. I fumbled around in the darkness, now very scared. The room was shaking violently, plaster was dropping off the ceiling into my hair and all over the floor.”

One local resident told Ansa: “I heard a big bang and I ran on the terrace, I was afraid of falling.”

TV footage later showed people inspecting damaged houses, offices and historic buildings. Parts of a castle in Finale Emilia collapsed.

Emergency officials ordered the evacuation of patients from hospitals as a precautionary measure.

Northern Italy is frequently rocked by minor earthquake, but the country is well-prepared to deal with them, the BBC’s Alan Johnston in Rome reports.

In January, a 5.3-magnitude quake hit northern Italy but caused no injuries.

August 23rd, 2011

A 5.8-magnitude earthquake based in Virginia sent tremors from the nation’s capital to New York City and New England Tuesday afternoon, officials said. Buildings throughout major metropolitan centers in the northeast were evacuated after the quake, and tremors were felt as far north as Bath, Me., and as far south as Hampstead, N.C., with some limited reports of damage reported near the quake’s epicenter in Virginia, where a nearby nuclear power plant was taken offline. Amtrak trains were temporarily halted, and cellphone service was disrupted as calls flooded cellular systems.

While there were only limited reports of damage, the breadth of the quake rattled nerves along the Northeast. The streets of downtown Washington filled with thousands of people on Tuesday afternoon as buildings from the Capitol to the White House were evacuated the 1:51 p.m. quake, which lasted by varying accounts anywhere from 20 to 30 seconds.

Andre Smith-Pugh, a 25-year-old carpentry worker, was high above the Eisenhower Executive Office Building when he felt the shaking.

“It felt like the scaffolding was coming down,” he said in an interview. “It felt like a big truck slammed into the side of the building right here at the White House.”

He and his work crew climbed down and gathered outside the White House. None were injured, he said, but all were rattled. Reuters quoted Richard Weinberg, a spokesman for the National Cathedral in Washington, as saying “at least three pinnacles on the central tower have broken off” because of the earthquake.

Several buildings in New York City were evacuated, with employees standing in the streets in midtown Manhattan. Rumbles were reported on Twitter from places as far-flung as Martha’s Vineyard, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee.

“Our townhouse started shaking a short time ago and branches started to fall off trees and hit our windows and hit our roof like crazy,” said Bill Parks of Hummelstown, Pa. “It lasted about 10 seconds and was as bad as the Northridge after shock I had experienced while visiting in California. I ran outdoors and found my neighbor calling a friend in Virginia who also felt the profound quake. This quake was like none I ever experienced in the East in my life and I am 76 years old.”

Dr. Arthur Lerner-Lam, head of Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Division of Seismology, said the earthquake occurred in a part of Central Virginia that is known as an area of geologically old faults, created several hundred million years ago when the Appalachian Mountains were forming. The area has frequent small earthquakes; the largest previously recorded was one of magnitude 4.8 in 1875.

“We do expect earthquakes to occur here,” he said. “Not as frequently as in California, but this is not a surprise.” He described the Central Virginia earthquakes as “kind of a randomized reactivation of these geologically old structures” as opposed to the tremors that occur along an active fault such as the San Andreas in California.

In Mineral, Va., a town about of about 500 people located four miles from the quake’s center, residents reported extensive damage to items inside homes. China shattered and pictures fell off walls. The Virginia epicenter was just miles from a decades-old nuclear power plant, the North Anna, operated by Dominion Power in Richmond, where two reactors were taken offline, although there were no reports of damage there.

Sherry Gibson, 42, owner of Sherry’s Snip & Style in Mineral, had popped home for a few minutes when the earthquake hit.

“The whole ground just shook and shook and kept on shaking,” she said. The noise was so loud, she said, that it sounded like a plane falling out of the sky. China blew out of the cabinet, and her mantel pulled away from the wall.

Some of her neighbors have cracks in their walls, she said, but she had not heard of any injuries and she said the town had not lost electricity.

The tremors were even felt in Boston, where John D. Tuerck said he felt “a discernible swaying on the 18th floor” of his office tower. He added: “Not something one expects here, for sure.”

In downtown Manhattan, police officers ordered the evacuation of New York’s City’s Hall a few minutes before 2 p.m., sending Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and his staff scurrying out of the building.

Mr. Bloomberg, standing in front of the grand Renaissance-style building, said he had felt the tremors but assumed they stemmed from extensive renovations underway inside City Hall.

“I did feel a little bit of shake,” he said.”And then it got greater.”

“So far,” Mr. Bloomberg said, “we have no reports of any damage.”

In Fort Greene, Brooklyn, calls of “did you feel that?” could be heard on nearly every street corner.

“I’m from California and I thought, ’that feels like an earthquake, but no, it can’t be an earthquake!’” said Matt Flammer, 23, who was standing in Bespoke Bicycles, the shop where he works on Lafayette Avenue, when the bikes on the wall began to sway.

In Washington, the tremor caused strong shaking in the Capitol, which was quickly evacuated for a structural evaluation. Chandeliers swayed and one short burst shook the centuries-old building. With a pro forma Senate session scheduled, Senate officials gathered across Constitution Avenue to determine how to proceed.

President Obama was in Martha’s Vineyard during the quake and Vice President Biden spent Tuesday in Japan, coincidentally touring areas that were devastated by the earthquake and attendant tsunami earlier this year.

But the biggest jolts occurred closer to the quake’s epicenter in Virginia.

Chuck Thies, 46, a political consultant who lives in Mount Pleasant in Washington, D.C., was writing an email on his computer on the top floor of his four-story building when the shaking started. It lasted a harrowing 15 to 20 seconds, he recalled, and within 10 seconds or so of the temblor subsiding, Mr. Thies had folded up his laptop and was barefoot on the sidewalk — standing among dozens of other stunned neighbors.

But before Mr. Thies, who was home alone in his office, bolted his building, which is more than 100 years old, he suspected it was an earthquake or perhaps a major explosion.

“My five-year-old son’s Matchbox trucks started falling off the shelf in succession, and that’s when I realized it was an earthquake,” he said. “And in the kitchen, some dishes that were in the drying rack started rattling loudly against one and other. This place really shook.”

nullA massive tsunami hits the coastal areas of Iwanuma, ...The town Minamisanriku is still submerged Saturday after Friday's strong earthquake-triggered tsunami in Miyagi prefecture, northern Japan.

11 March 2011 Last updated at 09:58 ET

Japan’s most powerful earthquake since records began has struck the north-east coast, triggering a massive tsunami.

Cars, ships and buildings were swept away by a wall of water after the 8.9-magnitude quake, which struck about 400km (250 miles) north-east of Tokyo.

A state of emergency has been declared at a nuclear power plant but officials said there were no radiation leaks.

The death toll is unclear, but police say 200 to 300 bodies have been found in the port city of Sendai.

Many more people are unaccounted for.

With train services suspended, there are millions of people on the streets of Tokyo tonight. The official advice is, if you’re safe, to stay where you are. But after the shock of the quake many people just want to get home.

Here in Tokyo, even though it wasn’t the epicentre, the quake was still felt very powerfully. The ground rolled and rumbled underfoot and you could hear the great skyscrapers creaking and cracking as they swayed.

Walking was like crossing the deck of a ship at sea. People poured down from their offices and stood in the street staring up.

The tremor, measured at 8.9 by the US Geological Survey, hit at 1446 local time (0546 GMT) at a depth of about 24km.

A tsunami warning was extended across the Pacific to North and South America.

The Red Cross in Geneva warned that the waves could be higher than some Pacific islands, Reuters news agency said.

Coastal areas in the Philippines, and other parts of the Pacific were evacuated ahead of the tsunami’s expected arrival.

The first waves, currently under a metre high, have started reaching Hawaii.

New Zealand downgraded its alert to a marine threat, meaning strong and unusual currents were expected.

‘Train missing’

Strong waves hit Japan’s Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, officials said, damaging dozens of coastal communities.

Kyodo news agency said a 10-metre wave (33ft) struck Sendai, which is in Miyagi.

Map

Japan’s NHK television showed a massive surge of debris-filled water sweeping away buildings, cars and ships and reaching far inland.

Motorists could be seen trying to speed away from the wall of water.

A passenger train with an unknown number of people aboard was missing in one coastal area, police told Kyodo.

And a ship carrying 100 people was swept away, Japanese media reported, quoting police in Miyagi. It is not clear what happened to the vessel.

Farmland around Sendai was submerged and the waves pushed cars across the runway of the city’s airport. Fires broke out in the city’s centre.

Thousands of people are being evacuated from near the Fukushima power plant, where a state of emergency has been declared. The cooling system failed in one of its reactors when it shut down automatically because of the earthquake.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan said no radiation leaks at that power plant or any of the other reactors in the quake-hit zone had been detected.

The UN’s nuclear agency said four nuclear power plants had shut down safely.

In Iwate prefecture, also near the epicentre, an official said it was difficult to gauge the extent of the destruction.

“Roads were badly damaged and cut off as the tsunami washed away debris, cars and many other things,” said Hiroshi Sato, a disaster management official in Iwate.

The earthquake also triggered a massive blaze at an oil refinery in Ichihara city in Chiba prefecture near Tokyo, engulfing storage tanks.

There were reports of about 20 people injured in Tokyo after the roof of a hall collapsed on to a graduation ceremony.

Residents and workers in Tokyo rushed out of apartment buildings and office blocks and gathered in parks and open spaces as aftershocks continued to hit.

Many people in Tokyo said they had never felt such a powerful earthquake.

In central Tokyo, Jeffrey Balanag said he was stuck in his office in the Shiodome Sumitomo building because the elevators had stopped working.

“We’re almost seasick from the constant rolling of the building,” he told the BBC.

Bullet train services to northern Japan were halted and rapid transit in Tokyo was suspended, stranding many workers in the city centre.

About four million homes in and around Tokyo suffered power outages.

In a televised address, Mr Kan extended his sympathy to the victims of the disaster and said an emergency response headquarters had been set up.

The death toll from Chile’s earthquake has more than doubled to 708 and is expected to rise further, President Michelle Bachelet has said.

Previously about 300 people were estimated to have been killed in Saturday’s 8.8 magnitude quake – one of the most powerful recorded.

Massive damage is hampering rescue teams as they struggle to reach those still buried in the rubble.

However a Pacific-wide alert for a tsunami has been lifted.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Ms Bachelet said: “The catastrophe is enormous. The latest number I have is 708 dead.”
