He surely may have a point (or many) in his approach to themes like telekinesis, remote viewing, precognition, clairvoyance (and other "siddhis", according to the Sanskrit language). For many years a “materialistic” science has prevented these phenomena from being properly addressed. At stake: it’s the “scientific method” of “1845” which limits the reality to a physical reality. Obviously, Ingo’s approach admits “multiple dimensions”; and like the old India's traditions: reality has several
I read this book because I find Ingo Swann to be the kind of person who can totally entertain you with the recalling of his adventures. As one of the subjects of telepathic research back in the '70s at SRI when the pentagon was interested in such things, Ingo undoubtedly had the chance to experience some interesting things to say the least. I found his chapters on the moon to be very interesting. I came away not convinced of any ET activity, but the cloak and dagger tales and his compilation of
One of the most intriguing and provocative books I so far had the privilege of reading. The story in first part will likely stay with me for a long time to come. I don't see any reason why this one could be made up. after all the story or rather a disclosure was made more than 10 yrs after it occurred. this book wasn't very popular, actually out of print now. amazon has used prices of around US$2200. But fortunately you can find a copy online. I never really thoroughly read the 2nd and 3rd part
This non-fiction book was written by one of the original people who worked on the "Stargate Project": Ingo Swann. A little Background: This was a 1978 Defense Department (DIA) effort. It's research and subsequent project were in response to similar work being done in the USSR at the time. It developed and used a form of mental telepathy with people as 'viewers' by using their abilities to virtually spy on others. I say virtual because the viewers were located in one location and the scene the w
Important read on Extraterrestrials.Wow, Ingo Swann has finally put into book form some of his amazing experiences. This book covers not the time he spent with Stanford University's remote viewing psychic research unit, of which he was one of the original members besides aiding in developing the protocol. Instead he goes into some of the extra secret work he did concerning exploration of the Moon and Jupiter. Totally gobsmacked. Towards the end, he goes into his own personal speculation on what
''Once in his car, in the parking lot, I asked him to wait a few moments. He asked what was wrong. I said, 'just wait.' Shortly the female came out pushing a loaded grocery cart. 'Study that one, and tell me what you think.' Conrad looked briefly at the woman, and then said the most remarkable thing: 'Well, if you mean: do I think she's an extraterrestrial? Yes.' ''Remote viewing is fascinating. The phenomena has found itself, in study after study, to be, at least to some degree, somewhat real...
Like all of Ingo Swann's writings, Penetration requires a reader willing to be surprised and engaged by both unusual events and explanations for them that only a talented psychic can present. That he sometimes does not do so in the prettiest prose can be a turn-off (why 4 stars and not 5) but one well worth plowing through. He presents his viewpoint on some of the well-known elements of his life story (remote viewing with the SRI group including his psychic journey to Jupiter in 1973) and some l...
I couldn't put this book down! I enjoyed reading this book. It was fascinating to read about the experience of Ingo Swann. Ingo was a natural, gifted psychic and remote viewer. This book touches about his remote viewing experience and being tasked on off-planetary targets and coming across Extraterresrials and telepathy! I always seem to learn something new about our universe, our consciousness from one of the old-timers of remote viewing. I'm so amazed by the things that go on in our planet tha...
If you're interested in remote viewing, this is a must read. The book talks about how remote viewing came about, how it got its name, and some of the targets Ingo was asked to use it for. Ingo is very easy to read, completely unpretentious, direct, and funny. And the things he has experienced will probably make you sit back and wonder. The book is fascinating, thought-provoking, and mind-blowing; this is my second reading and I find myself looking forward to reading a chapter or two every day. I...
Save your timeThe book started out good, but quickly turned into a rambling repetitive boring discourse on telepathy and how the government wont share its high resolution photos of the moon among other psychological BS. 1998 might have been the time to try and suffer thru this book.
I had watched a few videos at youtube on the topic of remote viewing. Reading this book was enjoyable, and though controversial and hinting towards apparent conspiracy theories, I found it engrossing as a popular introduction to remote viewing.
Recommended for people, who have had near-death experiences, as a fascinating explorationthat pushes the envelope of our understanding of consciousness and reality.
Ingo is great at guiding the reader into profound questions by referring to facts and then deducing bigger questions from them
The first part is very entertaining even for a work of fiction. The next two parts not that much. All the ETs and conspiracy theories aside, it offers a different perspective on what we usually refer to as telepathy. It would be one of many books on the topic except for who the author was within the remote viewing SRI - CIA program. If you are not aware of the context you may not appreciate its real value.
Great Book I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the remote viewing phenomenon and how it was used by the DOD for quite a many years. Ingo Swann was definitely one of the best remote viewers and his story is amazing
Penetration review Well written and brings up many details of what really exists on the moon. The book keeps you engaged. Info was a rare and precious source in this field.
One who spoke the truth hence buried by the regime.
Thought-provoking, especially the first two sections.
I am pretty skeptical about Swann’s claims in the last 2/3rds of this book, but the first third is a heck of an entertaining read. If published as a science fiction short story, it’d be a classic.
wonderful...I love Ingo Swam's books, they give you intellectual tools to continue your own exploration of reality....
If true, then this book explains a lot about the UFO phenomena and the US government's current public position on the subject. The book is also an exceptional exposition on thought manipulation and mass public thinking. A must read for anyone exploring the subject of UFOs.
Very thought provokingThis is a good book for stimulation of cognitive thinking that is often ridiculed, but should be at the forefront of human technology advancement-PSI technology, or telepathy. I believe that this is why aliens study us, they are curious as to why, spiritually, we are barbaric... and yet we have somewhat gained in leaps and bounds new technology. I think that if humans, on the whole, were connected spiritually with one another and with the world around us, we would benefit i...
I met Ingo in New York, NY He leaves out significant details in his autobiography i wrote an article in UFOdigest.com about it http://ufodigest.com/article/penetrat...Subsequently, he stopped all sales of the book and it went to over $10,000 on Amazon for a rare hard copy. He was afraid USG spooks would come ask him details of how to get to another planet, Zero Point Energy is working and how to break the cycle of reincarnation.The guy is a big time occultist which means "hidden" he follows the
Interesting and a little oddIngo in an interesting character with real street cred during a fascinating time in history. He is a decently talented writer, to boot. I enjoyed this book and its many insights and observations. The ideas are provocative, to be sure. It is a little odd near the end where he seems to get bogged down on the topic of the moon
Starts out engaging then diminished into tech speakLoved the beginning where he describes his experiences. Got bored with the 2nd half. More stores and experiences would have made it enjoyable
Fascinating reading, especially when Ingo Swan recounts his mysterious remote viewing assignments for the secretive Axelrod. Creates more question then it answers, but I enjoyed the what ifs....
How do open this to read????????????????
Interesting if not mostly a dry read. Deep thoughts about telepathy, ESP and consciousness that I understand only slightly better. Into is well above the average person in experiences and intellect
What a load of claptrap. This guy is an A-class nutter, stay away people!
It's a page turner.I didn't want to put it down. It's very well written. It's made me consider the possibility of the actual existence of extraterrestrial.
