Rey Hernandez

Academic Research Study on UFO Contact Experiencers

Talk Description

The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Experiences, or FREE, is a 501c3 Academic Research Not for Profit Foundation. FREE was co-founded by the late Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Rudy Schild, an Emeritus Research Astronomer at the Harvard/Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University, Australian researcher Mary Rodwell and Rey Hernandez, an Attorney and Experiencer who was a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of California at Berkeley. FREE is comprised of 9 retired academic professors and lay researchers who have been researching the field of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) and contact with Non-Human Intelligence (NHI) for more than 30 years. The Executive Director of FREE is Harvard Astrophysicist Dr. Rudy Schild.

Over the last 4 years the FREE Foundation has been conducting the world’s first comprehensive multi-language academic research study on individuals that have had UFO related contact with Non Human Intelligence (NHI)– The FREE Experiencer Research Study. We utilized 2 quantitative survey instruments totally over 550 questions and 1 qualitative survey comprised of written responses to 70 open-ended questions. For our English language surveys, we have received over 4,000 responses from over 100 countries. This survey addressed a diverse range of physical, psychological, perceptual, and paranormal aspects of reported physical and/or non-physical interactions with UFO related NHI. The participants were instructed to respond to our surveys based solely on conscious explicit memories and not on hypnotic regressions, lucid dreams, channeling, or other forms of memory recollection. All subjects provided consent to participate in this study and all responses were completely anonymous except for the participant’s email addresses which were used for the emailing of additional surveys. Our research findings from these 4,000 Experiencers from over 100 countries contradict much of the information that is circulating in the field of Ufology and Consciousness Studies. FREE Co-Founder Rey Hernandez will lecture on the formation of the FREE Foundation, the vision of FREE from the late Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the research methodology of the FREE Experiencer Research Study, and the findings from this 4 year academic research study.


Rey is one of the 4 co-founders of The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Experiences, or FREE, and one of the 2 co-chairs of the FREE Experiencer Research Committee.

While writing his Ph.D. dissertation, Rey’s ex-wife had a brain aneurysm and he was never able to complete his dissertation. Previous to March of 2012, Rey had zero interest in Consciousness, UAPs, the paranormal, or non-human intelligence. Beginning in March of 2012, Rey, his wife, and daughter began to have conscious physical contact with non-human intelligence in their family home, a series of paranormal experiences and have seen large UAPs, one time for more than 45 minutes, at a distance of less than 30 feet. Rey now devotes an extensive part of his life to understanding the true nature of our reality and writing academic articles for FREE. He has lectured internationally on the topics of Consciousness, UFO Contact with Non Human Intelligence, NDEs, OBEs, and the Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s Quantum Hologram Theory of Consciousness.
