The implication of this phenomenon, as proven in the laboratory, is that any individual can be placed on a polygraph and asked questions about subjects or events that are entirely unknown to them, in which they have no vested interest or emotional connection, and a trained polygrapher can identify their guessed answers as ‘true’ or ‘false’.


odern police lore is full of anecdotal evidence of an officer’s gut instinct or sixth sense saving the lives of officers and the public in apparently innocuous but highly dangerous situations. In the early 1970s the CIA and US military intelligence took this ability apart in the laboratory, figured out how it works, named it Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV) and put it to use with great success. Most members would be familiar with the concept of the polygraph; an electronic device capable of measuring involuntary physical responses generated by the body’s nervous system in response to ‘yes/no’ or ‘true/false’ questions. What most people are unaware of, is
