Men Who Stare

From: Leonard H.
Sent on: Sunday, November 15, 2009 2:44 AM
This might be an interesting meeting for some of you (especially Leslie).  Next Saturday, Paul Smith will tell his side of the story at Book People.  What story?  The one about the secret military program employing remote viewing.  Paul is a local guy who says he was involved in all that, and he teaches classes training people to do remote viewing. 
I think the idea, here, is to go see the movie sometime before Saturday, and then go listen to Paul's take on the movie.  More info below.
I'll be gone until Wednesday, but I'll see you all at LaMad South on Saturday morning.

The Story Behind The Men Who Stare at Goats
Presented by Major Paul H. Smith, US Army (ret.)

Saturday, November 21, 2009, 7:00–9:00 P.M.
BookPeople, Third Floor Meeting Room
603 North Lamar Boulevard
Austin, Texas 70703
Free and open to public
Followed by optional conversation in the first floor coffee shop

There is a lot of excitement right now about the new George Clooney film, The Men Who Stare at Goats.  After all, who could resist a movie that starts by mixing humor with stories featuring psychic arts and peaceful warriors sporting all-seeing eye tattoos, loosely drawn from a real-life military ESP program, and which then winds up during the war in Iraq with the liberation of a stable full of doomed goats destined to be stared to death!  Join former Army psychic warrior Maj. Paul H. Smith (US Army, ret.) as he spins the stories behind the stories of “The Men Who Stare at Goats,” touching on secrets, straightening out twisted tales, and excavating down to bedrock truth about the soldiers who used ESP to keep track of America’s Cold War foes. seven years, Paul H. Smith was assigned to the military psychic espionage program eventually known as Star Gate. He is author of  Reading the Enemy’s Mind:  Inside Star Gate—America’s Psychic Espionage Program (Tor/Forge, 2005), which was the Book Bonus and Editor’s Choice feature for the March 2006 Reader’s Digest. Paul is President and Chief Instructor for Austin-based Remote Viewing Instructional Services, Inc. and President of the International Remote Viewing Association.
