The Alexandria Project

The Alexandria Project

The Alexandria Project is the true story of how researchers from five universities and organizations went to Egypt to put the claims of a psychic ability known as Remote Viewing to the ultimate test: was it possible under rigorously controlled conditions for some part of the human mind to locate and describe ancient sites known to exist, but now lost to history? A second test was also carried out: how good was Remote Viewing when compared with electronic remote sensing technologies traditionally used by archaeologists? This book, and the research papers, and film that accompany it provide the surprising answers.
