The Star Gate Archives. Volume 2

Nemo C. Mörck


The parapsychological research by Harold Puthoff, Russell Targ, and their colleagues at SRI International during the 1970s and early 1980s was covered in my review of The Star Gate Archives Volume 1 (Mörck 2018). This was an explorative period during which focus was on applications. Targ had to leave in 1982, and Puthoff, the director of research, left in 1985; one of the Editors, Edwin May, became the new director of research. During the 1980s and early 1990s much basic research was conducted
and oversight increased. Among the members of the oversight committees were Daryl Bem, Robert Morris, Melvin Schwartz, and Philip Zimbardo. Comments from the Scientific Oversight Committee are attached to some of the reproduced documents. The names used for the program between 1985 and 1995 were Dragoon Absorb, Sun Streak, and Star Gate. Volume 2
consists of a collection of unclassified reports and declassified documents. The anthology also includes nine appendixes, a list of abbreviations, an extensive glossary, an author index, and a subject index. Brief comments about all reproduced documents can be found in the volume’s Introduction.
