Attached is a cony of a letter providing some brck- ground on the ESP caper, which I mentioned to you. It wts given to me by the engineer in Applied Physics Branch who is in touch with Dr. iuthof f . briefed who was, according to very excited about the w e thing. He encouraged to pursue it, and I plans to come up with of D&E money to fund some additional experiments by Dr. Puthoff. 3. II has also been in touch with Life Sciences Division of DDS&T, and reports that they have a very active interest in the ESP field, and have been collecting data for some time. They had heard of Ingo Swann and are interested in following his activities. According to 0 they glso said that they have a consultant who reports to them phenom- ena in the field, and that a number of Government agencies are now getting involved 4. and somebody named 0 from Life Sciences are plane ng a trip to the West Mast on 11 August, when they will meet Ingo Swann and have a chance to watch him flex his sphincter. He invited someone from BAB to join the group. I took the liberty of saying that we would be a little thin on personnel during that time, but would be interested in hearing what happened when he returns. Fi- nally, he mentioned that Life Sciences is planning on forming a "coordinating committee" to work on ESP and the data that is coming in, and they are saving us a slot on the committee. 1, TST) BAB CLASSIFIED BY _ EXF r:FT FRO.-VI GEh,-. .,_ 3 ATION SCHFALUL'.i OF OF 0 11 -152, 1A-r- FTION CATEGORY: 5D(i'? i.;; :;z (F?
