NIDS established: At one point, millionaire Robert Bigelow offered to provide funding to the tune of a million dollars for a cooperative research effort of the “big three” of ufology – MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), CUFOS (Center for UFO Studies), and FUFOR (Fund for UFO Research). This effort, sometimes referred to as “the Coalition” fell apart, reportedly when Bigelow tried to control the direction of the group. UFO skeptic Philip Klass reportedly accused John Alexander of causing the break-up, although Alexander denies it.
NIDS Maccabee has recently worked with The National Institute for Discovery Sciences, and probably worked with or near Eldon Byrd, as the two both worked at the Naval Surface Weapons Center at the same time.
Courtney Brown: Author of Cosmic Voyage, Dutton, 1996. Brown was trained in remote-viewing by Ed Dames, and took courses at the Monroe Institute.
Brown’s book details his psychic conversations with aliens, and repeats allegations similar to those made by Dames, Ingo Swann, Joe McMoneagle, and others. Among them:
- Martians live among us, and seek our help to return home. They live in South America and under the mountain Santa Fe Baldy
- Brown psychically contacted Jesus, Guru Dev, and Buddha
- The idea for the Star Trek TV series was inspired by aliens to get humanity accustomed to the idea of working with alien races in a Federation.
- Specific plot elements of the Star Trek: Next Generation series were suggested to someone on the show via an implanted telepathy device.
Many of Dames‘ claims concerning the Martians are presented in Brown’s book, but Brown implies that this is the first time any of this has been revealed to the remote viewers, even though the sessions took place in 1994 and Dames made similar claims as early as 1993 (see Stark, Debby,”Talking to Ed Dames”, NM MUFON News, June/July 1993
