$10 at the door
Dr. John B. Alexander will present a two-part lecture on the wide array of phenomena he has researched over the last five decades. One segment will be based on his most recent book, UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities (St. Martin’s Press – 2011). As a senior military officer he really did lead a top secret research group that explored the topic and came to the conclusions that some UFOs are real, physical objects that defy all simple explanations. While addressing the government’s involvement with UFOs, he admonishes the skeptics who refuse to examine the evidence as well as the true believers who blindly swallow any tale they hear. This is UFOs for people with common sense and he will cover how he inadvertently did become one of the Men in Black in Gulf Breeze many years ago.
While serving with the intelligence community, Dr. Alexander was also involved in the study of several other psychic phenomena and taught metal bending to many senior officials. Since then he has traveled the world and encountered shamans from the Amazon to the Himalayas, Africa to the Andes and beyond. In August he returned from a trip to the Stone Age in Papua New Guinea where they still occasionally eat people. As a founding member board of the directors for the International Remote Viewing Association he will discuss the evidence supporting those techniques.
Uniquely, the head of his doctoral committee was the legendary Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, who with Raymond Moody, was among the first medical doctors to discuss publicly near-death experiences (NDEs) that are suggestive of continuation of consciousness beyond physical death. Dr. Alexander is a past president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) and will compare NDEs with remote viewing techniques, out-of-body experiences, and the visions of shamans. Named in the book, he was partially the model for George Clooney’s composite character in the movie The Men Who Stare at Goats and appears on that DVD in Goats Declassified. With much to sort out, he will cover what was authentic and what not.
