This declassified report, prepared by the U.S. Army, Office of the Surgeon General, Medical Intelligence Office, provides the assessment of the government of the status of research by the Soviet Union (USSR) and Czechoslovakian parapsychologists on paranormal phenomena such as extrasensory perception (ESP), telepathy, and psychokinesis (PK) under controlled laboratory conditions. Skeptics in both nations have attacked the study of such phenomena on both scientific and political ideological grounds. The critics feel that parapsychology has fostered continued belief in mysticism, occultism, and religion. The scientists argue that there are many well established "facts" which remain as anomalous in scientific paradigms as ESP. After decades of research, conventional science still has no satisfactory neurophysiological explanation of memory, nor is there any appropriate model for explaining how raw data impinging on man s senses are transformed into a conscious experience. They conclude that "hard" science no longer offers a secure rationale for the denial of the possibility of any noncausal event.
Parapsychology is a field involving research on the informational and energetic possibilities of the psychic and biophysical activities of living organisms. Parapsychology investigates the complex of phenomena relating to the interaction of living organisms with each other and with the surrounding environment with the mediation of the known sense organs or presently identified energy transfer mechanisms. Western parapsychologists refer to this complex of phenomena as ESP and psi phenomena.
This document includes details of research into psychotronic generators, also called Pavlita generators after the inventor, which are small devices said to be capable of drawing biological energy from humans. The energy is accumulated and stored for future use. Once charged with human energy, the generators can do some of the things a psychic subject can do, but also be charged by individuals possessing no psychic ability. The Prague inventor, Robert Pavlita, claimed the generators could be charged by direct contact or by visually directing mental concentration upon them from a distance. "Soviet perfection of psychotronic weapons would pose a severe threat to enemy military, embassy, or security functions. The emitted energy would be silent and difficult to detect electronically and the only power source required would be the human operator," the report states.
