About a year ago, the media reported that the Pentagon had been training and using psychic spies, operatives who garnered information through "remote viewing." According to Morehouse, the media reports arose from a disinformation campaign conducted by the CIA in cooperation with the Defense Intelligence Agency. Here, Morehouse, a former highly decorated army officer?and psychic spy in the Star Gate program?purports to tell the real story and his role in it. Morehouse, we learn, became a psychic literally by accident. He was serving with the infantry in Jordan when he was knocked out by a stray bullet that hit his helmet; afterward, he saw strange visions and experienced out-of-body episodes. Instead of recommending psychiatric treatment, the army placed Morehouse in a top secret program in which agents psychically travel to far-flung sites to "view" prisons, airplane-crash locations and the like. Morehouse's descriptions of his psychic trips are the strength of this book. Most combine mystery and suspense so skillfully that he makes perfectly believable the notion that he "visited" a friend who had been killed in an air crash. But some of his "trips," such as the time-warp call at the burial site of the lost Ark of the Covenant, seem less authentic, though they're equally entertaining. For all the detail in his recounting of his remote-viewing incidents, Morehouse's narrative leaves gaps and unanswered questions, including exactly how the viewing process works, and the Star Gate program's exact provenance. Readers may need to do some remote viewing of their own to fill in the blanks, but overall this is a dramatic tale told with flair. Photos not seen by PW.

I wanted to hear about the usual autobiographical stages detailed in a memoir and the internal assessments of paranormal experiences as they increased for the author and so forth. At least for me, the author did not get across his reality effectively and I reluctantly quit reading halfway through.
Read this book and know the man who wrote is one of finest men I ever served with, the best commander any soldier could be lucky enough to follow. His credibility and honor are beyond reproach.
A truly thought provoking and serious work.

Morehouse's description of his initial fear and paranoia regarding his new
visions is spot on with readings about others who've been blessed with
Psi powers later in life. Some turn to drugs or alcohol to block the visions,
others make the mistake to confide with 'normal' shrinks---especially Military
types!---who immediately ID their patient as Schizophrenic/Paranoid and
medicate them into a stupor or send them to the horrible, horrible military mental
wards where they can be lost in the system while they're doped to the gills on
Luckily, Morehouse's shrink was not so cookie-cutter as his fellow shrinks and
referred Morehouse to a program---Star Streak---that considered his 'curse' as a 'blessing.'
I was fascinated by the description of his viewings and methods of removing his 'soul'
from his body so he could go awandering---curiously, no mention that this is also
called Astral Projection...hmmmmmm.....
It was only near the end of the book that I came upon references to the feisty
Ingo Swann---may he rest in peace.
No mention was made of other warriors who've had psychic warnings that save their
lives: Richard Marchinko in his 'Rogue Warrior' series---book #1.
Anthony Herbert in book 'Soldier.'
The phenomenal Bo Gritz who aggressively used psi for YEARS! with the knowing approval
of his subordinates during very successful combat ops in SE Asia.
Why Morehouse didn't get a powerful healer to surround him with a powerful Psi Shield was
frustrating. A frustrating, moving book.
I plan to contact Morehouse and check his Psi development program.
When people question the sanity/credibility of David Morehouse, point them in the direction of his bio and achievements.
