Appearing during the middle two hours, former Apollo astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Edgar Mitchell discussed his studies of consciousness and sustainable civilizations, as well as sharing spaceflight lore. While not seeing any UFOs himself, he said that the best evidence indicates that we have been visited by other intelligences, and that a governmental cover-up has taken place.
Discussing some of his experiences walking on the moon, he described the extremes in lunar temperatures, where during the day it was over 200Â° and at night it dropped down to -240Â°. He dealt with the changes by adjusting the cooling unit in his suit, he explained. The transcendent experience of being on the moon, influenced his perspective on humanity. He believes the exponential growth of human activity on our planet has become unsustainable, and that efforts must be made to restore equilibrium or "we are in real peril."
Mitchell also shared his ideas about consciousness, describing the "quantum holographic model" as encompassing all matter which emits and reabsorbs energy and can exchange information non-locally. He added that his current efforts involve raising funds and fostering development at the intersection of biology and consciousness research which he referred to as "quantum biology."
