A Brief Biography

Courtney Brown is a mathematician and social scientist who teaches in the Department of Political Science at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Independent of his work at the university, he is also a leading scholar on the subject of "remote viewing" as it is done using procedures that were developed by the United States military, or procedures that are derivative of those methodologies.

Academic Background: Courtney Brown received his Ph.D. degree from Washington University (St. Louis) in 1982 in political science with an emphasis on mathematical modeling. He began his teaching career as a college calculus instructor in Africa before moving on to teach nonlinear differential and difference equation modeling in the social sciences at the University of California at Los Angeles, Emory University, and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research Summer Program at the University of Michigan. He has published five peer-reviewed books and numerous articles on applied nonlinear mathematical modeling in the social sciences.

Remote-Viewing Background: Dr. Brown is the Director and founder of The Farsight Institute (, a nonprofit research and educational organization dedicated to the study of the phenomenon of nonlocal consciousness known as "remote viewing." He is also the CEO of the streaming service,, which is the largest venue of public projects featuring remote viewing anywhere. He has published peer-reviewed research on this subject in premier scientific outlets, and has spoken internationally at a host of prestigious venues, including various universities, as well as at respected gatherings of physicists. His recently published book on the subject, Remote Viewing: The Science and Theory of Nonphysical Perception, is the only book of its kind where the science of remote viewing is developed with respect to highly structured data-collection methodologies of the kind utilized by the U.S. military. In this book he analyzes data and develops a new theory that explains the remote-viewing phenomenon as a consequence of superposition formation on the quantum level.

Extraterrestrial Interests: Courtney Brown has a keen interest in extraterrestrial life, especially technologically advanced extraterrestrial life active in the Earth and near-Earth environment. His interests involve both physical evidence and remote-viewing evidence. Regarding physical evidence, Dr. Brown is involved in teaching people how to reliably make video recordings of extraterrestrial spacecraft. He has demonstrated that such spacecraft exist in enormous numbers, and can be found overhead, all day, virtually everywhere on Earth. The spacecraft are nearly all using stealth technology to hide their presence and activities, but modern camera technology can overcome this to a large extent. The necessary requirements are to shoot video in 4K or better, 120 fps, using infrared. Details of the exact methods can be found HERE. Examples of UAP/UFO videos taken using these methods can be found on Dr. Brown's Instagram page: courtneybrownfarsight. He has a special interest in encouraging university audiences to adopt these methods and to publish their own videos of such UAP/UFO activities, thereby encouraging colleges and universities to modernize their curricula.

Other Activities: Courtney Brown is an avid filmmaker, photographer, and digital artist. He has produced a number of documentaries involving the subjects of remote viewing and extraterrestrial life, as well as having written two best selling books on these subjects. Courtney Brown has long been active in performance and theater. He has acted in lead roles in a number of television series and films in the United States and Africa, playing Dr. Livingston in Suzi na Chuma as well as Sir John Kirk in Sultan Bargash, both of which were full-season television shows in Swahili. In the past, he sang regularly in the Atlanta area as a baritone soloist of sacred music, and some of his recordings have been featured on various websites in the United States and Africa. Dr. Brown also has an interest in political music and has published a book on the subject.
