Welcome to a walk on the wild side! As well-stated by Nobel Laureate physicist, Richrd Feynman, "If you think science is certain, well that's just a error on your part."
Caution is urged to all who enter as you may find things that will challenge your most fundamental beliefs.

John B. Alexander, Ph.D.
Dr. John Alexander has a long history of travelling a fine line between traditional science and studying various phenomena. He has been judicious in applying a scientifically-trained, critical eye while personally encountering many situations that defy conventional explanations. He has had the opportunity to discuss phenomenal events with many of the most brilliant scientific minds of the day. Alexander is an explorer that has dared to tread paths shunned by other scientists who fear for their personal reputations rather than searching for the truth wherever that may take them. For this he has received both acclaim and condemnation from believers and scoffers alike. Still, he remains focused on pursuing a path of knowledge that is likely to change how many people view the world.
On this path there have been many adventures. Assigned in Thailand he met with Buddhist mystics. In Vietnam, while commanding a Special Forces (Green Beret) A-Team, he had a monastery inside his camp in the Mekong Delta. In 1972 he was one of the first people to explore the unique underwater artifacts that have become known as the Bimini Wall. Many believe this to be remnants of Atlantis. In Hawaii he was the state representative for Silva Mind Control and learned Aikido from the Japanese masters. With Ted Rockwell, (Admiral Rickover's technical director for creating the nuclear Navy) he researched interspecies communications, including diving with dolphins in the wild (when that was still legal).
Developing a deep interest in near-death studies, John Alexander completed his doctoral work under the world famous Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. He went on to become the president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) then-located at the University of Connecticut. As always, he split his efforts and continued a pragmatic path helping to create Children’s Hospice International, an organization dedicated to assisting children who are facing life-threatening illnesses and their families. For that effort he received a President’s Award for Volunteer Action from President Ronald Reagan.
As part of his official military duties, he became involved in studying psychic phenomena and attempting to understand what the Soviet Union was doing in this area. He learned how to teach psychokinesis, involved professional magicians in the process, and then brought these skills to many high-level officers. His studies also covered remote viewing and extensive work in Neurolinguistic Programming. These techniques were applied to accelerating learning and skill acquisition. With the assistance of Cleve Backster he developed an instrument for the measurement of electrical impulses in oral leukocytes. Then they demonstrated remote influence and used these studies to challenge the American National Academy of Sciences. The spectacular results of these studies are recorded in his book The Warrior’s Edge.
While in the military he formed an ad hoc interagency group to study aerial phenomena (UFOs). This is a little known aspect of his work as the group insured no paper trail existed that could be traced by outsiders. Col. Alexander briefed many senior officials on this topic. Until recently he worked part-time for the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), a private research organization dedicated to exploring the UFO topic. His book, UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities will be released by St. Martin’s Press, February 2011
Being interested in phenomenology he has traveled the world visiting native healers and shamans. These visits include mountain trips into the Andes in Bolivia and Peru, and the Himalayas in Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan. He has also studied with curanderos in the Amazon region of Peru, Ecuador and Brazil, observed Sufis in Turkey, seen witch-doctors in Zimbabwe, gone to Timbuktu with the fearsome Tuarges, the Blue Men of the Sahel, experienced shamans of the reindeer people in northern Mongolia, witnessed voodoo ceremonies in West Africa, saw stone-age tribesmen in New Guinea, swam with humpback whales in the Kingdom of Tonga and met with lunar astronauts with similar interests.
To this day, Dr. Alexander continues his search. He calls it as he sees it. He has little use for conspiracy theorists, true believers who take in everything without questioning, or scoffers who refuse to accept facts no matter how persuasive.
For nine years he served as a councilor for the Society for Scientific Exploration is a past president of the International Association for Near Death Studies, and a founding board member of the International Remote Viewer's Association.
