Alejandro Álvarez

I am a mexican biologist, currently doing my PhD in the field of Evolutionary Biology. I have been a Student Member of the Parapsychological Association for two years. I have always been interested in the field of Parapsychology and I've been doing independent research for the last three years. I am interested in trying to explain psychic abilities from an evolutionary perspective, which I think is almost scarce in the field. I co-founded the Research Center of Sintergy and Consciousness.

William Bengston

Bill Bengston is a professor of statistics and research methods at St. Joseph’s College in New York and has been the President of the Society for Scientific Exploration since 2010.
His research has produced the first successful full cures of transplanted mammary cancer and methylcholanthrene induced sarcomas in mice by energy healing techniques that he helped to develop.  He has also investigated assorted correlates to healing such as EEG and fMRI entrainment, and geomagnetic micropulsation anomalies in healing space.  His current work involves the attempt to reverse engineer healing and reproduce healing without the healer.
