We are honored to publicly introduce The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters: FREE
Who We Are
We are honored to publicly introduce the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters – FREE – a Not for Profit research organization co-founded by the late Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 Astronaut), Dr. Rudy Schild (Emeritus Professor of Astrophysics at Harvard University), researcher Mary Rodwell from Australia, and Rey Hernandez an Attorney and Experiencer.
Harvard Emeritus Professor Dr. Rudy Schild is the Executive Director of FREE.
Before his death and in a video recording, Dr. Edgar Mitchell expressly gave his permission to allow FREE to be named in his legacy. You may view that video here.
FREE was formally incorporated as a Not for Profit Research Organization on July 15, 2015. FREE has been established by various retired Ph.D. Physicists, Ph.D. Scientists, Ph.D. Psychologists, Ph.D. Neuroscientists and lay researchers to facilitate grounded and rigorous scientific investigations into UFO related contact experiences with Non-Human intelligent beings or NHIBs and associated paranormal activity.
FREE’s Mission focuses on “Research, Education and Support” but we will primarily focus on scientific investigation through surveys and interviews with individuals who have had UFO related contact experiences with Non-Human intelligent beings. We plan to compare this UFO related contact group with individuals who have had other types of paranormal contact experiences through the following Contact Modalities:
NDE or Near Death Experience contact,
OBE or Out of Body contact,
Shamanic Hallucinogenic contact,
Mystical Meditation contact,
Lucid Dreaming contact,
Remote Viewing contact, and
Other types of human encounters with Non-Human intelligence and related paranormal contact experiences.
FREE is conducting the world’s first comprehensive academic research study on individuals who have had UFO related contact experiences with a Non-Human Intelligent Being (NHIB). The two Co-Chairs of our Research Committee are Dr. Jon Klimo (retired Ph.D. Professor of Psychology) and Dr. Bob Davis (retired Ph.D. Professor of Neuroscience). You may review our Research Methodology here.
Our research study is comprised of two quantitative surveys (Phase One and Two) and two qualitative instruments (Phase Three and Four). Phase One and Phase Two are comprised of 600 quantitative forced choice questions. Phase Three is comprised of written responses to 70 open-ended questions. Phase Four will involve formal interviews of the top 300 cases. Our Phase Four Interviews will begin sometime this summer.
As of May 1, 2016, we have received over 2,300 responses to our surveys in the English language and almost 500 responses to our surveys in the Spanish language. We will soon be launching surveys in French and German and hopefully other major languages in the future.
Initial Survey Findings
Our initial survey findings, which are based upon almost 3,000 survey responses, totally contradict what is being circulated on the Internet and in the field of Ufology. The following numbers point to FREE’s initial findings derived from UFO Contact Experiencers and includes both UFO Contact as well as contact with a Non-Human Intelligent Being or NHIB:
Over 75 % of Experiencers have viewed their experiences as Positive;
85% have undergone major transformations for the Positive. For example, they feel more spiritual, are less egotistical and have more concern for the environment and less concern focusing on monetary value [the materialistic];
Only 33% of UFO Contact Experiencers have had what is referred to as an “Alien Abduction;”
450 individuals have had Conscious Memories of being aboard a craft;
80% have had an Out of Body Experience;
50% have reported a medical healing by a Non-Human intelligent being (NHIB) as a result of their UFO related contact experience;
The “Human Looking Being” is the most common type of being seen by Experiencers and not the Short or Tall Greys;
55% have had “missing time;”
66% have received telepathic messages;
The majority of Experiencers have seen a Non-Human intelligent being (NHIB) more than 10 times;
395 individuals have stated that they believe they have been involved in what is commonly called an “Alien Breeding Program;”
35% have had a Near Death Experience;
83% of Experiencers believe that the Non-Human intelligent beings (NHIBs) are somehow related to the Spirit World;
95% of Experiencers have had some type of Paranormal Experience.
There appears to be a very strong relationship between NDEs or Near Death Experiences and UFO related Contact, including OBEs or Out of Body Experiences and Telepathic Communication with Human Looking Beings. Both groups have experienced numerous physical and psychic changes such as increased ESP or Extrasensory Perception skills, the ability to see energy fields, effects on electrical devices, medical healings, Spirit World connections, and many other similarities.
Please listen to this radio interview for a detailed audio review of our research data.
FREE also continues with its mission of assisting the Experiencers of Contact through our Support Programs which include the following:
Experiencer Support Referral List
We have published the FREE Experiencer Support Referral List which contains over 200 international therapists 200 who are ready to assist Experiencers. The list includes personnel with the following qualifications and certifications:
(1) License Mental Health Therapists
(2) Support Group Team Leaders
(3) Regression Therapists
(4) Energy Healers
Peer to Peer Support Program
FREE also has a Peer to Peer support program that has assisted over 350 individuals over an 18 month period via supportive telephonic calls. For more information, please email FREE at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Experiencer Liberation Day
FREE and over 30 Experiencer organizations around the world are collaborating on a social movement for Experiencers to “Come Out of the Closet.” This will be a Liberation Movement for Experiencers.
We have assembled 30 of the major Support organizations and providers of Experiencer Support that are beginning to work under one unified umbrella. We have had two meetings with all of these organizations and hope to have a unified worldwide support organization in the very near future. To participate in FREE’s Support Umbrella Program, email us at: email@example.com
Please listen to Mary Rodwell explain the need for these important FREE support Programs.
FREE has been established to provide a working environment for scientists, lay investigators, and first-hand experiencers of Non-Human contact to enter into collaboration and to foster ongoing conversation addressing some of the most profound, but often unacknowledged mysteries that confront human society today. To this effort, FREE has established the following Education Programs which are more thoroughly detailed in our website:
The primary educational vehicle that FREE utilizes is our new website. We have identified five major thematic topic areas that will contain numerous articles and documents. These five major areas are as follows:
(1) Modalities of Contact
(2) The Science and Physics of Consciousness
(3) Experiencer Research Programs
(4) Experiencer Support Programs
(5) Experiencer Education Programs
FREE will also have a secure Experiencer Chat Room; numerous videos; a Geographic Information System (GIS) program for organizing both HIC (Human Initiated Contact) sessions as well as organizing Experiencer Support Groups in specific Experiencers’ locations.
Out of the Closet Experiencer Videos
FREE plans to assemble hundreds of “Out of the Closet” Experiencer videos, each no longer than 10 minutes, during where individuals may share who they are with a short description of their experiences.
These will be Experiencers literally coming “Out of the Closet” and informing humanity that indeed these experiences are very real. What would be the impact if thousands of Experiencers from all sectors of society – Doctors, Lawyers, Academics, Firemen, Police Officers, Stay-at-Home Mothers, Fathers and Caregivers, Factory Workers, Business owners, Government workers and officials, et cetera) post a short 10 minute video where they identify who they are, where they live and a brief description of their ET Contact Experiences? [Just imagine the positive impact this will have on our culture and society!]
The result will be to encourage other Experiencers to “Come Out of the Closet.” Our objective is to publish thousands of these videos that will eventually encourage humanity to realize the validity of this phenomenon [as well as for people experiencing these phenomena to know they are not alone.] These videos, as well as the instructions on how to create and send them to FREE, will be placed on our website.
Educational Workshop Roundtable Videos that FREE plans to produce include bi-monthly videos recorded live and placed on our FREE website. The format will be that of a roundtable discussion comprised of three to four academic professors and lay researchers who will conduct a debate on diverse topics. Examples of such topics will be:
What is Consciousness?
What is the ET Agenda?
Are these Entities Negative or Positive?
Is a Hybridization of Humanity Taking Place?
Are these Entities involved in a Spiritual Transformation of Humanity?
Are “Abductions” the only form of ET Contact?
Every two months we will have a different topic and again, these bi-monthly Educational Workshop Roundtable Videos will be placed on our website.
International Experiencer Conference
FREE is organizing a worldwide coalition of the major organizations who are working with Experiencers, Contactees, and Abductees to initiate a three-day International Experiencer Conference that will be broadcast “LIVE” via Video Conferencing for a nominal fee to cover our costs. The Conference is expected to take place in the summer of 2018. The goal is to have the conference in Orlando, Florida in the summer of 2018 and to broadcast it live via video worldwide. The video feed will be translated into several major languages to address a worldwide audience. A small fee will be charged for both options.
FREE Presents Awakening to Contact TV Show
FREE is working with a television production crew in developing a “sizzler demo reel” for a proposed one hour TV show. The show’s title will be FREE Presents Awakening to Contact. The title was derived from FREE Co-Founder Mary Rodwell’s book Awakening: How Extraterrestrial Contact Can Transform Your Life.
The show will involve a new Experiencer each week that has allowed FREE to publicize his/her case. The objective will be to bring scientific credibility to this phenomenon, while fully respecting the Experiencer who has been ridiculed in almost all previous TV documentaries regarding this phenomenon.
FREE’s College Lecture Series
FREE plans to initiate and promote to all major colleges and universities a lecture series on our FREE Organization discussing our various programs including our FREE Experiencer Research Project. FREE will utilize various members of our Board of Directors to make these presentations. FREE views our target audience being Humanity in general instead of the mainstream Ufology field which is still stuck in a narrow [world view] of approaching the complex and interdisciplinary topics that FREE is promoting from a continued limited rational materialistic mindset.
FREE’s proposed title for our upcoming documentary is titled The Physics of Contact with Non-Human Intelligence
The purpose of this documentary is to present ground-breaking science and physics concepts, in an entertaining and educational 90 minute documentary. This documentary will center on topics such as the multi-dimensional nature of our reality involving extrasensory perception (ESP) and non-local communication and travel, and its potential connection to Non-Human intelligent beings. New physics concepts and “speculative physics” will be applied to enhance public understanding and appreciation of UFO contact experiences with nonhuman intelligences, Near Death Experiences (NDEs), Out-of-Body Experiences (OBEs), and other paranormal phenomena.
The 90 minute documentary will be divided into various concepts and segments. For each thematic concept we will present a mixture of comments from UFO related contact experiencers and expert analysis by Ph.D. physicists from leading academic institutions. Members of FREE’s Board of Directors will be prominently featured and we shall utilize data from our ongoing Experiencer Research Study and from the NDE literature. 3D animation graphics will also be utilized to present these topics and concepts in an entertaining and informative manner.
FREE has identified eight Ph.D. physics professors and six other Ph.D. scientists who have committed to appear in our documentary to explain the science and physics of the UFO and NDE Contact Phenomenon.
FREE will be raising funds through contributions from various “Investors” via legal Promissory Notes. We believe that this documentary project, which will be produced in multiple languages, will be commercially viable and will have worldwide circulation.
FREE is seeking investors to fund this major documentary. Our goal is to inform humanity, via Netflix and other major cable TV sources, of the science and physics of the Experiencer Contact Phenomenon. The documentary will introduce to the audience the concept of Contact Modalities and will specifically focus on NDE and UFO related contact experiences. FREE also plans to initiate various crowd sourcing initiatives.
Please review our website for more details about our documentary, The Physics of Contact with Non-Human Intelligence.
