In the last couple of days, this has popped up.

Link 1

Link 2

Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies (BICS) is asking for essays with a subject of “the survival of consciousness after permanent bodily death.”. Prizes announced at the end of the year are 500K, 300K, 150K for these essay submissions. From the interview snippit at the link above, it seems Bigelow has a genuine interest in the research and evidence out there in books and documentaries, so I suspect this submission of essays is to give them some idea which areas of research they need to persue.

“The Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies, was formed to try to conduct research and facilitate research into the possibility of the survival of human consciousness beyond bodily death, Bigelow told Mystery Wire in an exclusive interview, “and, if that is true, then to explore what is the other side all about?”

Bigelow does not mind rubbing shoulders with powerful politicians for funds. That is our money that he pleads for. His genuine interest is more about money than understanding the unknown.

I think its more accurate to say, his interest is in finding ways to EXPLOIT these things, in order to benefit him...(to exploit something, they must know all about it).


This was actually why Harry Reid agreed to give Bigelow Govt money for research at the Skinwalker Ranch...ultimately, Reid was hoping new military/weapons technology could be created from the research.


I have a feeling they found out that this stuff cannot be adequately controlled/reproduced though.

...And the stuff from Skinwalker Ranch NIDS investigation which he financed is still not released I believe too, although there is absolutely no reason why he should if he(the government) paid for it. The question is how many steps does the money have to go to before it is 'cleaned' of government influence. From government -> Bigelow -> NIDS. If the government did not finance it, would Bigelow still finance it himself? Or, was the idea that the government wanted to know what was going on there and to see if it was a threat of some kind.

Is this project also funded by the government but we just dont know about it yet. Quite possibly, as the government is interested in consciousness too as has been seen by the Remote Viewing projects.
