--+-- NOTICE --+--

Remote Viewing -- The Real Story is a book being placed in
the Internet and WWW in serialized form, with continuing
segments appearing at unscheduled intervals because of the
time necessary to complete each segment.

The book is appearing in this fashion because the top five

publishers in these United States rejected it on the grounds
that the public interest in the real story of remote viewing is
minimal and the story is of no real mainstream interest.

The author has nonetheless determined that a record of the

story should be available for open-and-free-access historical
purposes and for those who might chance to have interest.

For purposes of accuracy, the book is very carefully based on

documents existing in the author's voluminous, chronological
archives as well as some in the possession of other sources
and resources. All documents substantively depended upon
are noted in the text. A complete bibliography of additional
sources and other supportive materials will be appended later

In those instances where guideline documentation is not

available, or never existed, I have confirmed my recall by
consulting with one or more direct witnesses of those
instances. This follows accepted journalistic procedures which
are both traditional and proper.

However, the book, as it must be, is cast in the form of an

autobiographical memoir and therefore contains many
memories, opinions, deductions and estimations of the author
-- and who therefore leans on the freedoms of speech, belief
and opinion guaranteed by founding documents generally and
equally applicable throughout the United States.
