The Executive Director of FREE is DR. RUDY SCHILD. Rudy is an Emeritus Professor at the Harvard/Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University, following an extensive career studying Dark Matter, Black Holes, and the fluid mechanical origins of Cosmic Structure and the Physics of Information. Because of his long association with Dr. John Mack and Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Rudy became interested in the formulation of a coherent understanding of the nature of space-time in the Universe, and is a champion of the Edgar Mitchell quantum hologram formulation of the nature of existence and reality. As Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Cosmology he has attempted to broaden the scope of scientific inquiry to include the nature of consciousness and the Universe of Universes.
The preliminary findings of our Phase 1 and Phase 2 Surveys support this initial hypothesis by revealing that "Abduction" cases are only 32% of the individuals who have had "UFO related contact experiences with non-human intelligent beings." Thus, the position of our FREE Board of Directors is that we know very little about this phenomenon and in fact what is readily perceived by the public, or the field of Ufology, might be totally misunderstood and misguided.

Isn't there enough research groups already?
. . . The majority of our FREE Board of Directors, including Dr. Rudy Schild and Dr. Edgar Mitchell, hypothesize that all of these diverse "Paranormal Contact Modalities" (NDEs, OBE, UFO visitations, Remote Viewing, ESP, Channeling, Spirit Interactions, etc) are interconnected through what is commonly called "CONSCIOUSNESS" and that advanced physics, in particular, the Quantum Hologram Theory of Physics and Consciousness, can begin to describe the possibility of how all of these diverse "Paranormal Contact Modalities" are indeed interrelated with the UFO Contact Phenomena. Both Dr. Rudy Schild and Dr. Edgar Mitchell have published a series of academic papers on this very topic. FREE will begin, through the contributions of the five Ph.D. physicists associated with FREE, and other diverse scientists associated with FREE, to bring into our "Experiencer Research Study", the latest findings from advanced physics that might begin to explain the quantum nature of the "UFO Related Contact Experience".
The majority of our FREE Board of Directors also endorse the Post-Materialist Paradigm of what is "Consciousness", promulgated by Dr. Edgar Mitchell since the early 1970s and who helped establish the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS)-- a paradigm that firmly believes that consciousness is non-local and independent of the brain. This view of non-local consciousness might allow us to possibly explain a wide variety of special states of consciousness and many of the so called "paranormal" contact phenomena, including the UFO related contact experiences.
In addition, FREE will also uphold the views established by the field of "Transpersonal Psychology" that investigates the "Spiritual" aspects of our reality with openness and to help others who have had direct personal contact experiences to integrate these experiences into their daily lives and possibly into their spiritual practice. To this end, FREE will continue to support all "Experiencers" of paranormal experiences through the FREE "PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM" and other support services-- a program that has assisted over 300 Experiencers of UFO related contact experiences since September of 2014.
How can we do any meaningful research with our primitive intellect and understanding of the cosmos.
The truth about the "others" will not be found thru science but thru metaphysical exploration.
At FREE we believe answers will be found only when information is freely shared among researchers and by those who have experienced unexplained phenomena. Taking the current anonymous survey will help our research efforts and is greatly appreciated.
