This is the first part in an on-going series that is going to highlight the witnesses that are going to be speaking at The Citizens Hearing on Disclosure being held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC from April 29 to May 3, 2013. More information can be found on their website at http://www.citizenhearing.org.
As you will see, these are not just any witnesses – these are high level officials that are risking life and limb to bring forth disclosure.
The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure will attempt to accomplish what the U. S. Congress has failed to do for forty-five years – seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time.
The main ballroom of the National Press Club will be configured to resemble a Senate hearing room. There will be press areas, an audience area, witness tables and committee tables.
The Hearing committee will be composed of former members of the United States Congress. They will conduct themselves in the same manner as when they sat in committee during their tenure in Congress. To the extent possible the protocols for congressional hearings will be followed. Committee members will receive written statements from witnesses, hear oral statements and ask whatever questions they wish about the subject matter at hand.
Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Capt. USN, Ret., NASA)
On January 31, 1971, Navy Captain Dr. Edgar Mitchell embarked on a journey into outer space that resulted in becoming the sixth man to walk on the moon. The Apollo 14 mission was NASA’s third manned lunar landing. This historic journey ended safely nine days later on February 9, 1971. It was an audacious time in the history of mankind. For Mitchell, however, the most extraordinary journey was yet to come.
As he hurtled earthward through the abyss between the two worlds, Mitchell became engulfed by a profound sensation “a sense of universal connectedness.” He intuitively sensed that his presence, that of his fellow astronauts, and that of the planet in the window were all part of a deliberate, universal process and that the glittering cosmos itself was in some way conscious. The experience was so overwhelming Mitchell knew his life would never be the same.
Scientist, test pilot, naval officer, astronaut, entrepreneur, author and lecturer, Dr. Mitchell’s extraordinary career personifies humankind’s eternal thrust to widen its horizons as well as its inner soul.
His academic background includes a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management from Carnegie Mellon University, a Bachelor of Science from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and a Doctor of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT. In addition he has received honorary doctorates in engineering from New Mexico State University, the University of Akron, Carnegie Mellon University and a ScD from Embry-Riddle University.
Dr. Mitchell has received many awards and honors including the Presidential Medal of Freedom and nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize and was inducted into the Space Hall of Fame in 1979 and the Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1998.
After retiring from the Navy in 1972, Dr. Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences to sponsor research into the nature of consciousness as it relates to cosmology and causality. In 1984, he was a co-founder of the Association of Space Explorers, an international organization of those who have experienced space travel. He lectures regularly on cosmology, human potential, and the implications of recent discoveries in science as they affect our individual lives.
He is the author of “Psychic Exploration,” 1974, The Way of the Explorer, 1996, (Third edition, 2006) as well as dozens of articles in both professional and popular periodicals. He has devoted the last 35 years to studying human consciousness and psychic and paranormal phenomena in the search for a common ground between science and spirit.
“Suddenly from behind the rim of the moon, in long, slow-motion moments of immense majesty, there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel, a light, delicate sky-blue sphere laced with slow swirling veils of white, rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It takes more than a moment to fully realize this is Earth—home.”
“On the return trip home, gazing through 240,000 miles of space toward the stars and the planet from which I had come, I suddenly experienced the universe as intelligent, loving, harmonious.”
“We’re way, way past time for bringing this information to the public, acknowledging it and entering into the sort of discussions at the highest levels of congress and the government – to make this information available to the public. It’s far, far past time for this. If we don’t do it here, I don’t know when we’ll ever going to be able to do it.”
“We went to the moon as technicians, we returned humanitarians.”
“I think our representative democracy is in danger….I think events are moving so fast, so very rapidly, that no one is really on top of it, and if we don’t get the people mobilized here to demand that we get to the bottom of these issues we’re talking about today…we’re not going to have an opportunity forever. This is a key issue that we are talking about.”
