Director, Consciousness and Contact Research Institute
Rey Hernandez is director of the Consciousness and Contact Research Institute (CCRI), an academic research institute comprised of more than 25 PhD academics, medical doctors and researchers whose mission is to explore the relationship between consciousness research and the phenomenology of “paranormal experiences”, what CCRI calls “The Contact Modalities.”
In 2018, Rey and a team of retired academics published an 820-page book, Beyond UFOs: The Science of Consciousness and Contact with Non-Human Intelligence, which was the world’s first and only comprehensive worldwide academic statistical research study on UFO Contact Experiencers. Over 4,300 individuals participated from over 125 countries. Rey has also published in several peer-reviewed academic journals, including the Journal of the International Academy of Consciousness and the Journal of the Society for Scientific Exploration. He has recently published five new books as part of a series titled “A GREATER REALITY: The New Paradigm of Nonlocal Consciousness, the Paranormal and the Contact Modalities.” His most recent book is titled, “The Mind of GOD: A Spiritual-Virtual Reality Model of Consciousness and the Contact Modalities.”
Rey was a PhD Candidate at the University of California at Berkeley where he was the recipient of a National Science Foundation PhD Fellowship.
Statistical Academic Research on Experiencers of the “Paranormal” Contact
Modalities: Identifying the Nature of our Greater Reality and Consciousness
The Consciousness and Contract Research Institute, or CCRI, is in the process of establishing a five-year comprehensive academic research study to understand the interrelationship between “Experiencers” of the Contact Modalities (individuals that have had contact with perceived higher forms of intelligence via Near Death Experiences, Out of Body Experiences, UFOs/UAPs, Ghosts/Spirits, Remote Viewing, Hallucinogenic Experiences, Channeling and other PSI and Paranormal experiences) and leading theoretical hypotheses relating to the nature of our multidimensional reality which includes Nonlocal Consciousness. CCRI argues that “Consciousness is Fundamental” and not our physical reality. Secondly, we argue that all of the Contact Modalities should be studied as ONE phenomenon under “Consciousness” instead of as separate phenomena. Finally, there is minimal statistical academic research comparing experiencers of the Contact Modalities and this talk will argue that this type of research is the best approach to studying “what is Consciousness”, the nature of our Greater Reality.
