 Couple of interesting items here – esp. the Gary Schwartz one, though it’s not the first time a University has investigated contactee cases (I am thinking primarily of John Mack).

www.openminds.tvThe future of media will be integrated, cross promotional platforms.   The ultimate example of such a multi-platform is: radio, television, website, print publication, online publication, all working together.That is exactly what Open Minds Production out of Phoenix is about to accomplish when the print and online versions of Open Minds Magazine and Open Minds Television soon join the OM website and radio show already launched.   The magazine is due to hit the news stands in a few weeks.  Editor Maurizio Baiata has proven he can produce high production value publications and Open Minds Magazine will be of a kind with the late and much missed Omni Magazine – now collector’s items.PRG encourages all who care about UFO/ET and related issues to support this magazine.  Look for it on the stands and tell your friends.  It is going to represent our issues in stunning fashion.First Contact TV
www.youtube.com/user… Internet is itself a multi-platform of media.   A new HD television series is in development starring: Richard Dolan, Jaime Windon, Michael Lukowiak and Rob Simone.  It’s directed by John D’Auria.    A Facebook page and YouTube channel are already up and running.   Sign up and support this program as it utilizes the Internet to reach a worldwide audience.The Sophia Project – University of Arizona Study
lach.web.arizona.edu… University of Arizona has announced it will be conducting a scientific study of individual claims of experiencing contact with non(physical)-human entities under the direction of Dr. Gary E. Schwartz. ET contactees will be included in the study. PRG considers this a very significant development.  The near absence of engagement of the UFO/ET issue by U.S. colleges and universities since the 1950’s is perhaps the greatest intellectual failure in history.  PRG’s believes this will be the first time a university will formally study the contact/abduction phenomena .  Dr. John Mack’s work was done outside of Harvard with an affiliation back to Harvard.through the Cambridge Hospital only because Mack was officed there.  Temple University has never engaged the issue.  It has just permitted Dr. David Jacobs to keep his job while doing his outside work plus a limited credit course.  Dr. Leo  Sprinkle was forced to retire from the U. of Wyoming over his outside contactee work.  Furthermore, a systematic effort to parse these accounts could be very revealing.  All cultural history is filled with events interpreted by people within the context of what the person knows about the physical world.   If someone sees an entity walk through a wall in their bedroom, why would they not consider that a “ghost experience?”  But, alas, it is well reported that ET’s can come through a wall.Dr. Gary Schwartz has the stature of Mack and is fully aware of the ET presence.  He attended the MIT abduction symposium in 1992 and is going to make sure the ET accounts are properly considered.   It also is worth noting the University of Arizona is where Dr. James E. McDonald worked right up until his suicide.  Perhaps the circle is about to be closed at last.National Declassification Center
tinyurl.com/yjhh6om [From the White House Blog] President Obama has issued a new executive order on �Classified National Security Information� that addresses the problem of over-classification in numerous ways and will allow researchers to gain timelier access to formerly classified records.   Among the major changes are the following: *  It establishes a National Declassification Center at the National Archives to enable agency reviewers to perform collaborative declassification in accordance with priorities developed by the Archivist with input from the general public. *  For the first time, it establishes the principle that no records may remain classified indefinitely and provides enforceable deadlines for declassifying information exempted from automatic declassification at 25 years. *  For the first time, it requires agencies to conduct fundamental classification guidance reviews to ensure that classification guides are up-to-date and that they do not require unnecessary classification. *  It eliminates an Intelligence Community veto of certain decisions by the Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel that was introduced in the Bush order. Without question the first year of the Obama administration has been highly problematic.  Much has gone wrong.  However, in the background and with little attention from the media, efforts to serve the open, transparent  promise of the campaign have been ongoing.  This is just one example.  PRG considers this new Executive Order to be very significant.   The administration is building a platform upon which to serve a post-Disclosure reality.  It is PRG’s view Disclosure is still on the delayed agenda of the Democratic administration of Barack Obama.Royal Society ET Life Conference
royalsociety.org/Eve…Vatican ET Astrobiology Conference
tinyurl.com/yzxhb8th… seems the study of ET life is on everyone’s agenda these days.On January 25-26, 2010 the prestigious, 350 year old Royal Society of London will conduct a conference on “The detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society.”   Confirmed speakers include: Simon Conway Morris FRS, Dr Malcolm Fridlund, Paul Davies, Albert A Harrison, Ivan Almar, Michel Mayor, Dr Chris McKay, Charles Cockell, Dr. Kathryn Denning, Colin Pillinger CBE FRS, Ted Peters, Christian de Duve FRS, Dr Frank Drake, and Pascale Ehrenfreund.      PRG considers this a timely move on the part of the Royal Society.   Very stodgy academics with high opinions of themselves hate to be caught with their pants down and there a lot of pants out there at risk.Of greater importance is the astrobiology symposium held at the Vatican during the first week of November 2009.  Scientists from around the world convened to discuss essentially the same subject matter about to be taken up by the Royal Society.    Father Jose Gabriel Funes, the director of the Vatican observatory, is leading the effort positioning the Catholic Church on the right side of the UFO/ET issue as disclosure draws near.   Monsignor Corrado Balducci would be very pleased. ___________________________________________________Paradigm Research Group4938 Hampden Lane, #161, Bethesda, MD 20814PRG@paradigmres…  202-215-8344www.para…If you no longer wish to receive these emails, or you wish to update your profile, please click here.
