William Brown, M.Sc. is a molecular biologist based at the Institute for Bioregenesis Research at the University of Hawai´i in Manoa, Honolulu. His mentor, Dr Frederic Mercier, discovered an extracellular matrix protein complex within the brain that he named fractones, after the fractal patterns of the Mandelbrot set. Their research is focused on elucidating the primary role of fractones and other elements of the connective tissue network in creating neural plasticity, tissue architecture, bioregenesis and the stem cell niche. The Institute´s research is focused on the process of development and pattern formation within the organism and how that can be applied to regenerating damaged tissue and organs within humans. Brown conducts directed research into anything that can be considered strange, and he spends most of his time enjoying nature and music and becoming more aware of the inner source that connects each of us to the Infinite. In his latest research, he explores topics such as “Alien Genetic Manipulation – The Morphogenetic Field.” For an interview click here. William’s Website: http://williambrownscienceoflife.com/
Grant Cameron (Canada)became involved in extraterrestrial-related phenomena research in May 1975 with a personal sighting near Carman, Manitoba about 25 miles north of the Canada-US border. Over the next 18 months hundreds of sightings were reported, and Grant spent months photographing a series of strange objects and interviewing hundreds of witnesses who were involved. Thus began a 28 years commitment to the subject. After composing a manuscript about the 1975-76 sightings, he moved on to research the work of the legendary Wilbert B. Smith. Smith headed up the Canadian government´s flying saucer investigation known as Project Magnet, which ran from 1950 to 1954. Over two decades Cameron was able to collect most of Smith´s files and written materials. He interviewed most of the associates around Smith who worked on the flying saucer investigation. He produced a CD-Rom data disk with most of the documents from the Smith files along with 12 hours of audio related to Smith’s work. During the Smith research Grant learned of the former Penn State University president Dr. Eric Walker, who was identified by Dr. Robert Sarbacher as a key person inside the Cover-up. Cameron teamed up with T. Scott Crain to research and write UFOs, MJ-12, and the Government published by MUFON. Cameron then turned his research interests to the relationship of U.S. Presidents to the extraterrestrial issue. He made 13 trips to the U.S. National Archives and most of the Presidential archives looking for relevant documents. A major contribution of his work was a FOIA submission to the White House Office of Science and Technology which yielded nearly 1,000 pages of disclosure documents from the Clinton administration. He has lectured in Canada and the U. S. on the 1975-76 Manitoba sightings, Wilbert Smith and the president/UFO connection. He lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Richard C. Cook. In 1970 Richard Cook graduated from the College of William and Mary, receiving a degree with honors and election to Phi Beta Kappa. He then came to Washington, D.C., to study meditation and spirituality and serve as an analyst with the federal government. While at NASA Cook warned of a possible disaster due to faulty O-ring joints in the space shuttle solid rocket boosters. The disaster came to pass with the loss of Challenger and seven American astronauts in January 1986. Cook then worked at the U.S. Treasury department for over two decades. Upon retirement in 2007, he wrote articles predicting the financial crash of 2008. Cook has published several books, including “In the Footsteps of the Yogi” on his spiritual experiences; “Challenger Revealed”on his time as a whistleblower with NASA; and “We Hold These Truths: The Hope of Monetary Reform”on how to change the financial system. In his latest book, “Return of the Aeons: The Planetary Spiritual Ascension”, Cook says that Ascension is real and applies to all human beings. Cook writes further that the Divine Beings known in ancient times as Aeons are here and available to guide us. Cook and his wife Karen now live in Roanoke, VA, USA, where they teach Ascension Meditation and Healing™ at the Lifestream Center.

Neil Freer is a researcher, writer, lecturer, philosopher and poet living in Santa Fe, NM. Neil holds a BA in English and did graduate work in Philosophy and Psychology at the New School for Social Research. (I have purposely foregone graduate degrees because they focus one more and more narrowly on a particular specialization, tend to constrain one’s thought and exploration to the established, consensual paradigm of the moment and bind one to tenure, peer and funding pressures.) He has taught college courses in Philosophy and History of Religion, gives private and public seminars and lectures and has done over two hundred radio and TV interviews. Neil is the author of Breaking the Godspell, a book which explores the ramifications of the archaeological, astronomical and genetic proof for our being a genetically engineered species and presents the ramifications of this new paradigm of human nature that resolves the Creationist-Evolutionary conflict. In his second book, God Games: What Do You Do Forever? he explores the ways in which we will live when, individually and collectively, we attain the unassailable integrity afforded by the restoration of our true genetic history. He outlines the species maturity of the new planetary civilization and describes the “god games” of immortality, four dimensional consciousness, life after the Law Of Everything, alien contact, that the new human will play. Neil´s work has appeared as part of the symposium, Of Heaven and Earth (Book Tree, 1996) which includes the paper he presented as invited guest speaker at the Zecharia Sitchin Day special event at the International Association For New Science conference in 1996. An essay “In The Middle of Whose Ship Are You Standing?” is included in David Pursglove´s Zen And The Art Of Close Encounters. A one hour interview with Jeffery Mishlove on Thinking Allowed was aired nationwide on PBS TV September 13th, 1999. He has presented at the Sedona Millennium Conference and The Prophets Conferences. Neil´s most recent public presentation was as keynote speaker at the International MUFON conference in Dearborn, MI in July of 2003. He has presented at the Arlington Institute, a Washington, D.C. futurist think tank to an audience of Pentagon officers. Principal website: http://www.neilfreer.com

Manuel Lamiroy, Lic. Juris (South Africa) has had a lifelong interest in all matters extraterrestrial. In 1994 he decided to quit a career as a lawyer and academic researcher (with teaching assignment), and started a consulting company. This also offered him the opportunity to follow his passion and dedicate more time to extraterrestrial research. After a course in regression therapy, he began to investigate abduction and contact cases. He also started sharing information with other researchers and regression therapists on an informal basis, and centralized that information in a database. While it started as a database for people who work with abductees, this project has over the years crystallized into a valuable asset for exopolitical research, as well. It can be found at http://manuel.sekmeth.com/hb7.

STEVE MORENO is the founder and President of Psi APPLICATIONS, a non-profit research foundation that envisions the creation of a unifying network of cooperative experts from the many independent disciplines that currently exist within the spectrum covering the paranormal field. Steve has come to recognize an undeniable relationship between all of these various aspects and hopes such a coordinated research approach will allow for a scientific foundation to become firmly established in the process. Though he may lack any formal academic degrees, it is his unique background that qualifies him. Prior to an NDE (Near Death Experience) at the age of 22, Steve was a typical psychic/experiencer-the same as the many he now investigates. Unlike most typical NDEs, Steve´s psychic experiences came to a halt after the experience. This allowed him to lead a more normal life, except for being obligated to honor a perceived promise he made during the course of that NDE, which allowed for him to remain within this life. This dichotomy created a unique capability to understand, befriend, and document many current psychics/experiencers, and associated anomalous phenomena, while also networking the research and study of this data into the mainstream of science and academia. Most importantly, Steve´s unique style, investigative methodology, and filtering system has allowed him to obtain some of the best cases, which demonstrate that benevolent contacts with possible advanced Extraterrestrial / Ultraterrestrial beings may be current and ongoing in nature. These may be occurring right under our eyes, showing a willingness to be documented and to reciprocate back in an equally positive fashion if we should acknowledge them as such. Likewise, Steve considers one factor of `benevolence´ to be when these very same beings will also just `leave us alone´, if even the slightest type of negative response or hostile intent is perceived to come from us. Qualifying cases that demonstrate benevolent contact are placed into one of Psi APPLICATIONS´ various “Project Contact Initiatives”. Over the years he has come to be a respected and seasoned researcher and investigator, networking with many notable experiencers, contactees, scientists, and scholars. He has served as a media consultant and advisor, and has appeared as a guest on numerous radio and T.V. shows. He once served as a co-host for National Cable Radio Network´s `UFO´s Tonight Show´. Steve is also known for coordinating and leading teams of qualified experts when necessary to scientifically investigate and report on paranormal phenomenon. This was recently demonstrated in 2003, in the culmination of a 6-month investigation into 3 record setting crop formations in California, when a national press conference was held to announce unprecedented scientific results that were found to exist. This was the first time such a conference was ever called by an organization like Psi APPLICATIONS, and considered credible enough to receive full national coverage.

Giorgio Piacenza was born in Lima, Peru in 1961 and studied Primary and Secondary School at Markham College. At the age of 10, he began to question the nature of reality and human motivation. At the age of 12, he began to participate in Western esoteric and Indian mystical groups, attempting to synthesize their knowledge while attempting to maintain a comparative, critical perspective. After a UFO experience in 1975 in the coastal town of Chilca, Peru, he befriended alleged contactees and consistently researched the UFO phenomenon. In 1987 he earned a degree in Sociology from Georgetown University and, in 1990, two business certificates from John F. Kennedy University. In 1991 Giorgio opened an import-export business and continued researching the UFO phenomenon, offering occasional lectures, and TV or radio interviews. Between 1999- 2000, he became one of the civilian founding advisors to OIFAA, the Peruvian Air Force’s Office of Investigations of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena. Through the years, Giorgio has kept abreast of a wide-range of interests regarding the overall nature of reality, such as the mind-body problem, shamanism, philosophy, cosmology and physics. He has been a life-long student of integrative theoretical models including (since1981), of Ken Wilber’s. In 2009, Giorgio completed a Certificate in Integral Theory offered by John F. Kennedy University and now plans to write articles and essays and to pursue a Masters degree in Integral Theory and-or in Consciousness Studies.
Karel Rasin (Czech Republic) has studied various questions of astrology (he is preparing a new astrology book “Black Moon”) and first of all he has been interested in the UFO phenomena since his youth. There is especially the examination of the abductions phenomena that he has researched. He contacted almost all the people in the Czech Republic believing to have lived the syndrome of UFO abduction and he was exploring them thoroughly. He published the results of his study in a well-researched book “Setkání ctvrtého druhu, realita únosu do UFO v Cechách” (Close encounter of the fourth kind – Reality of UFO abductions in Czech Republic) (Votobia 2002). This is the only book of a Czech author treating thoroughly the matter. He is in a close contact with many researchers interested in the UFO phenomena both in the Czech Republic and in other countries. He has been lecturing many times at various conferences and congresses in the Czech Republic. As he is interested since long in the exopolitics, he has tried to create a research group in the Czech Republic and he was the only representative of the country he took part with one of his collaborators at the UFO congress Exopolitics Summit 2009 in Barcelona in Spain. He contributed about UFO also in American UFO Magazine and gave several times TV appearance in the news in Czech Republic to comment assorted UFO cases and sightings.

Donald Ware (Lt.Col. USAF, Ret.) received a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Duke University in 1957 and an MS in Nuclear Engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology in 1970. He retired from the U.S. Air Force at the end of 1982 with wide experience as a fighter pilot, staff scientist, teacher, test manager, and programs manager. He has observed alien vehicles nine times starting with the famous sighting over Washington D.C. on 26 Jul 52. He and his human companions initiated two of these encounters. Since 1989 he has received guidance from some higher intelligence, often through other people with more highly developed paranormal abilities. Since retirement Ware has spent most of his time studying the persistent mysteries of mankind: to gain insight into the larger reality that UFOs represent. In this process he developed and currently gives lectures on: UFOs and Human/Alien Interaction; The Long-term Government Covert Educational Program on UFOS; Telepathic Communications and UFO Phenomena; Transformation: Spiritual, Physical, and Political; The Spiritual Hierarchy: Many Forms of Eternal Beings; Planet X: A Philosophical View; and Rising Consciousness of World Leaders; and How a Fighter Pilot, Staff Scientist, and UFO Investigator Became a Lightworker. He is currently on the board of the International UFO Congress. His principal website is: http://www.freewebs.com/donware/
