Silva offered millions of dollars worth of research... and the U.S. government turned it down!
(This is from a letter that Jose Silva wrote to Silva instructors in 1995, after it was revealed that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency had spent an estimated $11 million to possibly as much as $30 million investigating and training psychics to gather military intelligence.)

What do you think the United States government thinks of psychic ability?
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was willing to spend $11 million (some say it was actually $20 million) to see if psychics could help in the espionage game.
We could have told them that 30 years ago. As a matter of fact, we did!
On August 11, 1965, my birthday, I decided to give the U.S. government a gift worth millions of dollars.
I wrote a letter to President Lyndon Johnson offering to give the government all of my research, free of charge.
I had invested more than $500,000 of my own money and time, so it was not exactly a small gift that I was offering.
At least they were polite enough to answer me. But they gave the wrong answer!
"There is much yet to be learned about the activities of the human mind," the letter from Randal M. Robertson, Associate Director of the National Science Foundation said, "and there are many unsettled questions about hypnosis and about paranormal activities. There does not seem to be any specific need at present for the assistance you have offered."
Can you imagine, if President Johnson had known how to use his mind to get more information and make better decisions, he might have been able to prevent the deaths of so many human beings in Vietnam, and might not have had to give up the Presidency and return home a broken man who died shortly after.
The government might not have seen a need way back then, but the public did. People at the grass roots level have embraced our training.
Today it is being taught in 103 countries and territories around the world, in 29 different languages. We have more than 1,000 instructors carrying the work forward.
And graduates in every language say, "Thank you for showing me how to change my life for the better."
The CIA and the Pentagon got good results for their millions of dollars. Some reports say the psychics were correct 15 percent of the time, well above chance levels.
On Larry King Live one of the people involved in the project said that in one instance the psychics located all 12 submarines that they were asked to find.
As you know, Silva graduates are often 100 percent accurate on the cases they work. But not always. Their overall accuracy is about 80 percent, much better than the CIA's remote viewers.
Instead of spending $11 million, they should pay us a few hundred dollars each to train their own staff people to use their clairvoyant ability. They are the experts in their own field, and they could do amazing work... if they would.
Regardless of what the government does, we'll continue with our own work.
In this field, our track record is much better than the government's!
Remote viewing is just one of the many techniques taught in our system. We are leading the way into the second phase of human evolution on this planet.
