Beyond UFOs: The Science of Consciousness and Contact with Non-Human Intelligence

An Upcoming Book by The Foundation for Research Into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Encounters (FREE)

After 4 years of conducting the world’s first comprehensive multi-language and international academic research study on UFO related Contact with Non Human Intelligence (NHI),  FREE has now published our ground-breaking book!
Read the free sample - Table of Contents, Chapter 1, Prelude written by Dr. Rudy Schild, and Author Biographies.


Now available in Italian! 

The Dr. Edgar Mitchell FREE Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Experiencers, or FREE, a 501c3 academic research foundation, comprised of 11 Ph.D. physicists, scientists, neuroscientists and lay researchers, will be publishing a book analyzing the data of our FREE Experiencer Research Study.

We will have more than 21 authors writing 22 chapters in two volumes on the historic findings which totally contradict much of what is circulating in the field of Ufology. In two volumes, these books will soon be the authority for UFO related contact with NHI. This historic research will establish a new paradigm for viewing the phenomena of UFO Contact with NHI, not by associating it with UFOs, but by associating it via Consciousness and the Contact Modalities (contact via UFOs, NDEs, OBEs, Spirits/Ghosts, Channeling, Remote Viewing, Orbs, Hallucinogenic Journeys, ESP, Telepathic Communications, Meditation, etc).

FREE hypothesizes that all “Paranormal” Contact with NHI is interrelated and might be one phenomenon instead of separate phenomena and that advanced theories of “Consciousness” can begin to reveal this relationship. FREE also believes that cross comparative research on the “Experiencers” of the Contact Modalities is the key to understand the mystery of what is Consciousness — what is the true nature of our reality. Please read the attached Book Description and the famous authors that will be discussing our FREE data and writing groundbreaking articles on our FREE Experiencer Research Study. You can email to request a sample chapter.  The book will be available for purchase on August 1st, 2018.

The historic academic research findings from Beyond UFOs: The Science of Consciousness and Contact with Non Human Intelligence suggests that the physical aspects of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) contact experience are but a small fraction of attributes associated with this complex phenomenon.  Indeed, it is the pervasive non-physicality, the parapsychological and other paranormal anomalous aspects, such as OBEs, NDEs, Remote Viewing and ESP, that comprise the majority of FREE’s survey responses.  We firmly believe that the scientific physics, astrophysics, neuroscience and parapsychology academic community needs to take note and instead of dismissing and shunning the UAP phenomena, these fields need to embrace it.

It has been a century since physics pioneers discovered that consciousness affects quantum mechanics. Until recently, the effects of consciousness have been largely overlooked by mainstream science, hoping they can be treated as a perturbation. But in many UAP cases, as well as Out of Body, Near Death and Remote Viewing cases, phenomena occur that are so far beyond conventional physics that at last science will have to address the long needed unification. It appears there is a very real higher dimensional universe that we are a part of, and these phenomena make it clear whether we are ready to see it or not.  Beyond UFOs is a pioneer scholarly research which establishes a new paradigm for the UAP phenomenon.  I highly recommend this historic book.

Beyond UFOs is an important book because it reveals that many ordinary people are having extraordinary and sometimes profoundly life-changing experiences. These experiences, which often arrive spontaneously "out of the blue," remind us that today's scientific understanding of reality, and especially the role of consciousness in the physical world, are seriously incomplete. Highly recommended.

Congratulations to the Dr. Edgar Mitchell FREE Foundation for putting together Beyond UFOs, an excellent academic research project and book.  It is a major achievement and a monumental study. I was delighted you could use and adapt some of my measuring instruments from my long career as a Near Death Experience academic researcher, and, even more, that you validated many of my own NDE research findings with your very large sample.


Kenneth Ring, Ph.D.  Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of Connecticut and co-founder of the International Association for Near Death Studies.  Author of The Omega Project and Lessons from the Light.



Beyond UFOs is based on an extremely thorough academic research study of thousands of observations that cannot be explained with conventional science. It is a quantum leap in the direction of legitimizing paranormal experiences, such as UAP contact, Near Death Experiences, Out of Body Experiences, ESP, Remote Viewing and even the physical observation of ORBS, which has been the subject of my own research interests. Highly recommended.

This historic academic publication by the Dr. Edgar Mitchell FREE Foundation explores the role of human conscious, the unconscious, the collective unconscious, and the latent human abilities--  the powers that are our very own that will enable us to better understand our other dimensional visitors…and ourselves.  No one has ever undertaken this comprehensive academic research and I highly recommend Beyond UFOs.  This is a historic book which will establish a new paradigm for how we view all types of contact with non human intelligence and the very nature of our reality.

Beyond UFO’s is a historic academic research.  From FREE’s survey responses as well as from detailed medical case histories of selected contact experiencers that I have personally reviewed, it is clear that reports of medical healings are common among those reporting encounters with non-human intelligences. The high strangeness aspects of the reported healings are clearly a challenge to conventional medical wisdom.  Dramatic cures of a wide range of acute and chronic conditions are being reported. If the mechanisms of these seemingly miraculous treatments were understood, it would usher in an exciting new era in medical science.

The research foundation co-founded by Dr. Edgar Mitchell, FREE, is breaking new ground in the academic research and study of the anomalous contact phenomena such as UAP Contact, NDEs, OBEs, ESP, Spirit Communications, Channeling, etc. They are at the forefront of academic research in their methodologies and with respect to their academic research findings. The FREE Foundation’s first book, Beyond UFOs, is a must read for any serious academic researcher involved with this topic.


Diana Walsh Pasulka, Ph.D.  Chair and Professor, The Department of Philosophy and Religion, The University of North Carolina, Wilmington  


A theory of everything needs to be able to explain all phenomena, including the reports by people who call themselves "UAP Contactees." Beyond UFOs ventures beyond where others have dared, and provides a comprehensive academic research study of this population. It is a seminal work that deserves serious attention by all students and academics of consciousness.


Diane Hennacy Powell, M.D.  Author of The ESP Enigma: A Scientific Case for Psychic Phenomena 


Beyond UFOs is a truly seminal book. It will serve as a standard reference for all those who study the idea of consciousness, UAPs, NDEs, OBEs, Remote Viewing, and human interactions with non human intelligence. The editors have carefully crafted a volume that is both broad and rigorous in its approach to the subject. It is an audacious academic book unhindered by the blinders of mainstream orthodoxy.


Courtney Brown, Ph.D.  Director of The Farsight Institute, Author of Remote Viewing: The Science and Theory of Nonphysical Perception


Consciousness is the Rosetta Stone to understanding the UFO mystery. Experiencers are the link to understanding this consciousness connection. The authors of Beyond UFOs: The Science of Consciousness and Non Human Intelligence, are on the leading edge of academic research into the consciousness – the experiencer connection. Therefore, this book should be required reading for all researchers in the fields of consciousness, parapsychology, the paranormal, and UAPs.


Grant Cameron.  Author of Managing Magic: The Government's UFO Disclosure Plan


A ground breaking thoroughly documented historic academic research study of reported alien life form contact with human beings that indicate that UAP, Near Death and other paranormal contact experiences are all expressions of an overall encompassing meta phenomenon postulated by the Quantum Hologram Theory of Consciousness.  A must read for interested layman and academic researchers alike.


Raymond Fowler.  Author of The Watchers, The Andreasson Affair, The Allagash Abduction


I have known of the important academic work of the Dr. Edgar Mitchell FREE Foundation for a number of years and have digested the pioneering academic book, Beyond UFOs, and consider such efforts not only highly important to our understanding of this manifestation but also an absolutely necessary initiative to increase our knowledge about the extremely complex phenomenon of UAP related contact with non human intelligence.  I highly recommend Beyond UFOs.
