William Lawrence is a scientist investigating new methods of communicating with extraterrestrial intelligence. Developing a new method of spectroscopy he has discovered extraterrestrial messages in the visible light frequency of our star, the Sun. In 2015 while creating an experiment to communicate with ghosts, he discovered that not only ghosts were able to become visible but other life forms that he concluded were not from Earth.
With this Discovery came many unexplained sightings of UFOs and it seemed the UFOs were targeting him due to discovering the frequency they're using to communicate. Since 1984 most SETI experiments searched for radio signals from E.T. but now with new communication technology, there are other possible frequencies extraterrestrials could be using and these new technologies is what William is looking into to establish communication with extraterrestrial life.
