American artist and psychic, an exceptionally successful subject in parapsychological experiments. Perhaps one of the most tested subjects of parapsychology researchers, he has demonstrated remarkable paranormal abilities in several areas. In test conditions set up with increasing rigor by Gertrude R. Schmeidler, from 15 ft away, he was able to change the temperature of a target. He excelled in OBE experiments, naming objects on an eight ft tall tower 100% at the odds of 1 in 40,000. Test results have been reported in magazines and journals.

Swann had his first OBE (out-of-body) experience when he was aged three when he left his body and watched his tonsils being removed. Since 1970, he was worked with over 38 cutting-edge researchers in the paranormal field and he is well-known for phenomenal test results.

Ingo studied at Westminster College, Salt Lake City, UT, receiving a double bachelor’s degree in biology and art. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and served for three years in Korea. After his discharge, he worked for 12 years at the U.N.’s Secretariat while pursuing his private career in art.

His active participation in parapsychology research began in 1969, age 36. For the next 20 years he worked in controlled lab settings with scientific researchers and has never demonstrated his abilities to the public in entertainment or academic performances. Because of the hundreds of thousands of experimental trials, he was called "parapsychology’s most tested guinea pig" and the media has labeled him "the scientific psychic." Many books and articles written after 1973 about psychic research refer to Swann in some way, for his cutting-edge experiments.

His ten published books includes "To Kiss Earth Good-Bye," 1975, "Star Fire," 1978 and "Penetration: The Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy," 1998. His two-volume "Secrets of Power" was published in 2000 and 2002.
