Approved For Release 2001/04/02 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200030005-2 DATE: 15 November, 1984 WTTG, a Washington D.C. television station, aired an article on 29 October, 1984 concerning a new techinque which teaches children to be so psychically sensitive that, among other things, they can "see" pictures in magazines with their hands, while their eyes are completely blindfolded. Although this is not the major goal of the course, it is used as an indicator of the child's progress. The actual end goal of the course is to develop an extremely high degree of psychic sensitivity within the individual, to the point where he can easily recognize and use the psychic abilities which are natural to him. A very impressive demonstration was given on the show. Out of interest in the possible applications of this technique to our operational and training needs, I contacted the TV station. They referred me to WIS TV in Columbia, South Carolina, which had originated the article. Upon calling that station, I was given the name and phone number of: B.U.M.E., Inc. P.O. Box 290628 San Antonio, TX 78229 (512) 340-5264 I called B.U.M.E. Inc. on 15 Nov 84, and the man in charge of it told me that this technique was invented in Mexico 18 years ago, and that schools for it were widespread in that country. He said that this was the first such school in the U.S., and that he would send me all the information necessary by mail. ~~rn J-A 0/r A 4 k Ir-p- Approved For Release 2001/04/02 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200030005-2
