Parapsychology in Russia with Loyd Auerbach

Loyd Auerbach, MS, received his masters’ degree in parapsychology from John F. Kennedy University. He is author of Mind Over Matter; ESP, Hauntings, and Poltergeists: A Parapsychologist’s Handbook; Reincarnation, Channeling, and Possession; Psychic Dreaming; A Paranormal Casebook; and Ghost Hunting: How to Investigate the Paranormal. He is co-author (with Ed May, Joseph McMoneagle, and Victor Rubel) of ESP Wars: East and West. He is the Director of the Office of Paranormal Investigations. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the Rhine Research Center.

Here he points out that, during the Soviet era, parapsychological research was conducted in some forty different institutes — greatly exceeding the activity in the United States. The Soviet military program entailed more than 100 remote viewers. Remote viewers were also actively used by law enforcement agencies and by the KGB. High profile psychics were also employed to shield prominent figures, such as premier Gorbachev, from enemy psychic attack. Since the fall of the USSR, this activity has been greatly reduced.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980).
