Stephan A. Schwartz

Stephan A. Schwartz, author of Remote Viewing, is the Senior Samueli Fellow of the Samueli Institute, a research associate of the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory of the Laboratories for Fundamental Research, and a columnist for the peer-reviewed journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing. For 40 years, he has been studying the nature of consciousness and has produced and written a considerable body of work about consciousness and remote viewing, including The Secret Vaults of Time, The Alexandria Project, and Opening to the Infinite.

The principal researcher studying the use of remote viewing in archaeology, Schwartz is part of the small group that founded modern remote viewing research. His research team discovered Cleopatra’s Palace, Marc Anthony's Timonium, and ruins of the Lighthouse of Pharos, as well as sunken ships along the California coast and in the Bahamas, all using remote viewing. Deep Quest, a submarine experiment using remote viewing, in which Schwartz was assisted by government researchers from the Stanford Research Institute, helped determine that nonlocal perception is not an electromagnetic phenomenon. His Gold Standard Course of DVDs and CDs, and the book <em>Opening to the Infinite,</em> are acknowledged as the standard in the field and constitute a college course on remote viewing. In his other areas of research, he has explored creativity, spiritual epiphany, and therapeutic intention and healing.

Previously the founder and research director of the Mobius laboratory and director of research of the Rhine Research Center, Stephan A. Schwartz currently serves on the board of directors of the International Remote Viewing Association. He also is a columnist for the journal Explore and editor of the daily web publication Schwartzreport, which covers trends that are affecting our future.
