History of FREE
by Reinerio (Rey) Hernandez, Co-Founder
The following is a brief history on the formation of Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE). Let me first introduce myself. My name is Reinerio Hernandez but everyone calls me Rey. I am currently employed as an Estate Tax Attorney with the IRS in Miami, FL for almost 15 years. Previous to this, I was the Director of the Center for a Sustainable Urban Environment at the City University of New York and the Director of the Office of Community Environmental Planning for the City of New York. I have attended Rutgers College, Cornell University and UC. Berkeley for a Ph.D. in City and Regional Planning. I was also the recipient of the National Science Foundation Ph.D., Fellowship.
Development of FREE
FREE began over a 3 day period. On day one, I was taken Out of Body into a Matrix Reality and was “Downloaded” with very specific information about the Contact Modalities and its relationship to Advanced Physics/Consciousness. I was also given instructions of a mission to “Inform humanity of the relationship between these ETs, the Spirit World, and Consciousness (Advanced Physics)”. Later that first day, Mary Rodwell received for the first time a message I had sent her more than 6 months earlier. On day two, Dr. Rudy Schild called me at 9:30 in the morning. I had no idea who Rudy was when he called. On the second day, I had received an invitation by the late Dr. Edgar Mitchell who invited me to his house the very next day. It was Edgar and Rudy who encouraged me to initiate an organization that eventually was named FREE.
My first contact experience occurred in March of 2012 when my wife and I saw a floating energy being, 2 ft wide by 3 ft in height, who changed appearances, who performed a miraculous healing and controlled my mind during this process. My wife and my paralyzed dog (who we were going to euthanize that same day) disappeared right in front of my eyes and I was then put to sleep for 45 minutes. I was not in bed but was in the middle of my living room with my wife. 45 minutes later, I woke up and my wife and dog reappeared right in front of me but our dog was completely cured of her total paralysis and returned with the energy of a teenager. My wife then began to see huge football stadium size UFO crafts, less than 200 meters away, for the next 3 months. Later, my daughter and I, as well as 3 other adults, saw a huge football stadium size UFO craft, less than 10 meters away from us, floating only 3-5 meters on top of my neighbor’s house for 45 minutes performing different light shows for us.
Since my first event in March of 2012, I have also had numerous paranormal and PSI experiences. One event occurred on May 16, 2013, the same week after I returned from my first UFO conference at Sebring Florida. While driving in the middle of a traffic jam heading to downtown Miami at 8:30 AM, I had what can be described as an Out of Body Experience where I was placed in the middle of a huge spinning wheel and I was given “instructions” by some unknown “ET” (Non-Human Intelligent Being) that I “must complete” a specific project. I want to provide a very brief detail of the “downloaded” message that I received. I had never experienced anything like this and it freaked me out.
First of all, it was not a voice telling me what to do. It was like a direct message was planted in my brain. It was not a thought but more like a telegram was being read in my brain. Very difficult to describe but I will try. All of this occurred after I was “taken” Out of Body and placed in some type of “matrix reality” where I was placed inside a very large spinning wheel. Let me explain.
I was driving into downtown Miami in the morning rush hour. The time was about 8:30 in the morning. I was listening to a public radio station interview but towards the end of the interview, I was no longer driving my car in the middle of a traffic jam. Instead I found myself inside a large spinning wheel the size of a huge Ferris Wheel. I was in the center of this spinning wheel. I felt that I must have gone Out of Body into a “Matrix” reality. I saw myself inside a spinning wheel with many spokes (imagine Huge Ferris Wheel) and I was inside the fulcrum, (in the center of the spinning wheel) looking outward as it was spinning around me. It had spokes which contained inside each spoke the following topic areas: ET Contact, Near Death Experiences, Out of Body Experiences, Contact via Meditation, Channeling, Contact via Remote Viewing, Contact via Shamanic Journeys, Spirit World/Ghost Contact, etc. I then realized that these were various “Modalities” of having contact with Non Human Intelligent Beings.
I was in the middle of this wheel looking out at these spokes spinning around me. Information then came into my head instructing me that it was “Consciousness”, some type of advanced physics we do not yet know about, that was holding the Contact Modalities together-- I felt that this vision was a very important “Key” to understanding the true nature of our reality.
A detailed message then popped into my mind. It was not a voice but just instant information. I call it my “ET Telegram” that had the following message:
"You need to inform humanity the relationship between us (the ETs), the Spirit World (the reality we transition to after our Death) & Consciousness (Advanced Physics)”.
You will need help. There are 2 criteria. This is not about making money and there has to be minimal Ego.
This entire message was transmitted instantly in its entirety. It was not some information now and then more info later. It was all one stream of information. I call it an “ET Telegram”. It was really weird and uncharacteristic of my thought pattern which usually comes in bits of information spread out over time. It did not come out like a “Voice” inside my head. It did not have an actual voice, it was like a powerful THOUGHT information that was placed inside my head. It is very difficult to describe.
May 16, 17, and 18, 2013:
DEVELOPMENT OF FOUNDATION FOR RESEARCH INTO EXTRATERRESTRIAL ENCOUNTERS (FREE)
The same night after I got this “ET Telegram” on May 16th, I got an email response from Mary Rodwell. Mary is one of the most experienced researchers on the UFO related ET Contact phenomena and Experiencers of this contact. She has interviewed and investigated over 3,000 Experiencers of ET Contact over a 25 year period and has written several books and numerous articles on this topic area.
In early December of 2012, I had sent about 10 well known researchers in the UFO/ET field an email explaining my experiences of seeing the “Energy Being” inside my house, the crafts and beings seen by my wife and the huge craft my daughter, myself and my 3 friends had seen in late August of 2012. If I recall correctly, I only received 3 responses-- Mr. Whitley Strieber, Grant Cameron and Joe Montaldo through one of his volunteers.
More than 6 months later, Mary responded to this email I had initially sent in December of 2012 but she waited 6months to respond to this email. In this email she informed me that she was sorry for responding 6 months late but that she had just received my email-- the email had just popped unto her screen today even though it was 6 months late.
That same day that I got Mary’s response to my 6 month old email, I then sent her an email and informed her about the “ET Telegram” I received at 8:30 AM that same morning and the instructions I received during my ET “Download” that I need to undertake a project regarding the relationship between ETs, the Spiritual World, and Consciousness/Quantum Physics. Mary responded to this second email almost immediately and she showed me for the first time how to use Skype. We then had a Skype conversation and we got to know each other. I asked her if she has a custom of going back 6 months to search for emails. She started to laugh and stated to me “Rey, I can barely keep up with one day’s worth of emails let along going back 6 months to search for lost emails, LOL.” She told me that she never does this and that my email just popped in front of her computer a few hours ago-- the same exact day as my ET Telegram. She then told me: “Rey, you know for a fact that your email was deliberately placed in front of me by these entities”. I told her that I agreed with her and we both laughed.
I also sent Mary an email containing my diary containing my family’s “UFO Contact Experiences” and told her that after my initial ET contact inside my living room I began to read many UFO books up until late August of 2012 when my daughter and 3 friends had the very close encounter with that football stadium sized UFO. I then told her that I instantaneously stopped reading UFO books. Instead I began to read like a crazy person books on only two subjects: Near Death Experiences and “Consciousness Studies” which discussed the physics behind what is “Consciousness” and the NDE Experience. I told her that I began reading these books 12 hours per day, 7 days per week until I had my 3 NDE related experiences, 3 days in a row on December 21, 22, 23 of 2012. I told her that the first 3 individuals I ever mentioned NDEs to, 3 days in a row, December 21, 22, 23, all had NDEs and that this was NOT a coincidence.
Mary then informed me that a very good friend of hers, Dr. Rudy Schild, was an Emeritus Professor of Astro-Physics at Harvard University and that he is interested in ETs, Consciousness Studies, and Quantum Physics. I totally forgot about this individual until he called me the next day at 9:30 in the morning. He called me up and I had no idea who he was.
I had never heard of his name before. In fact, I later found out that Dr. Schild is an Emeritus Professor of Astrophysics at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and that he was a retired tenured professor in the Physics Department at Harvard University, and the Editor-in-Chief of the “Journal of Cosmology”. He is also an expert on Black Holes and also served on the Board of Directors of the John Mack Institute and was a dear friend of Dr. Mack.
I was awestruck. I informed him of all of my ET “adventures”. He was fascinated. He informed me that in fact, the information I received in my “ET Telegram”, that all of the so called “Contact Modalities” can all be explained through the Quantum Physics of Consciouness was indeed correct. He told me that all of the Contact Modalities I saw in the spinning wheel are all interrelated and that Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s Quantum Hologram Theory of Consciousness and Physics explains how these so-called paranormal phenomena are interrelated.
For the next 90 minutes Rudy began to spoon feed me like a baby the quantum physics of Dr. Mitchell’s Quantum Hologram Theory-- a theory of Consciousnesses and our multi-dimensional reality. This theory explains all of the paranormal phenomena including how ETs interact with us-- how they go through physical objects, telepathic communication, movement of craft, etc. He then explained to me that “Quantum Physics” can explain a lot of this phenomenon. He spoon fed me basic quantum physics and spoke about the physics of “cosmic consciousness” and how this phenomenon can explain ETs and their appearances.
Rudy even informed me that he had been working with an Experiencers Group of the John Mack Institute and worked with Dr. Mack for many years before his untimely death. I told Rudy that maybe my download information might have been about developing a weekly TV show based similar to “UFO Hunters”. The show would have focused each week on a specific contactee’s experience to be followed by himself as the Quantum Physicist explaining the quantum physics of the contactee’s experience. He had also told me that he had been working with group associated with the John Mack Institute on a similar documentary project.
He told me that if I can pull this project off that he will assist me in any way possible including serving as the “Science Advisor” for any future documentary, TV series, or “Organization”. Rudy then encouraged me to establish an “Organization” to implement my vision. Thus, it was Dr. Schild who first suggested about forming an “Organization”.
Rudy then told me to write down a telephone number he was going to give me. I wrote down the number. He then told me that this was the telephone of his mentor. I then asked Rudy, “Rudy, who is your mentor”. He then stated Dr. Edgar Mitchell-- the person that had taught him about the importance of the Quantum Hologram Theory of Consciousness. Rudy told me that he was a very good friend of Dr. Mitchell, that Edgar was his mentor and that he lived only 90 minutes away from me in Palm Beach County. Rudy then informed me that he was going to email and call Edgar regarding the nature of our discussions and that I needed to be taken seriously. He then encouraged me to call Edgar.
Dr. Schild informed me that Dr. Edgar Mitchell is a dear friend and was his mentor on the topic of advanced physics and consciousness studies. Before I had my “awakening”, I knew very little of Dr. Mitchell except that he was mentioned in almost all of the books I read on the Physics and Science of what is Consciousness. Now I know that Dr. Mitchell was a member of the Apollo 14 mission which was NASA's third manned lunar landing, that he was the 6th man to walk on the moon, that he has a Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT, was the founder of the Institute of Noetic Science, the Father of UFO Disclosure Movement, and the Father of the Physics of Consciousness Studies and PSI. Outside of his NASA work, Edgar is probably best known as one of the early pioneers of the UFO Disclosure Movement. He was the key individual that brought the various military and ex NASA employees to testify in the various UFO Disclosure symposiums. Without Edgar, the Disclosure Movement would not be where it is today.
IMO, Edgar should be best known for his work on “Consciousness Studies” and the Physics of Consciousness. In fact, very few individuals know this side of Edgar’s life. After retiring from the Navy in 1972, he brought together many of the researchers working on the PSI phenomena under one umbrella, first with the Stanford Research Institute and later with the Institute for Noetic Sciences. Edgar later developed a not for profit physics organization called “Quantrek” that researched the physics of zero point energy and the physics of the Quantum Hologram. Edgar was also key to incorporating Quantum Physics, particularly the Quantum Hologram Theory of physics, into the phenomenon of what is “Consciousness”. He is now known as the Father of Modern Scientific Consciousness Studies and has devoted his life to studying human consciousness, together with psychic and paranormal phenomena in the search for a common ground between advanced physics and consciousness studies. Over the last 40 years, Dr. Mitchell has also devoted most of his free time to investigating Zero Point energy, the physics of energy healing, and research on the physics of the Quantum Hologram. Rudy has always told me that “Edgar deserves the Nobel Prize”.
After speaking with Dr. Schild, on May 17th, the next day after I received my “ET Telegram”, I worked up the nerve to call Dr. Mitchell later that afternoon. Dr. Mitchell picked up the call and mentioned that Rudy had sent him an email earlier in the morning and that he had just spoken with him. He mentioned that Rudy spoke very highly of me and that he was expecting my phone call. WOW! We then had a short conversation which just like Rudy’s call literally blew my mind. Edgar then invited me to his house for the very next day which is in Lake Worth, just 90 minutes from my house. I accepted his offer and we agreed that I will visit him the following day at 10 AM.
When I arrived at Dr. Mitchell’s house, we exchanged stories. He told me about his “awakening” in space and his early years growing up in Roswell, New Mexico, the site of the world famous Roswell UFO crash. He told me that he worked at a local airport when he was a young teen and he was paid via flying lessons. Edgar’s parents owned two farm supply stores in the Roswell area and that he knew most of the ranchers and workers in the area because they were always in his parent’s stores. He told me that after he came back from the moon he was not only a national hero but a hero to the folks in Roswell. When he returned to Roswell, many of the old timers and their children began to pull him aside and told him very intimate stories of the ship that crashed in Roswell. Edgar informed me that based on the information he was given by very reliable individuals, individuals he had know most of his life, that the Roswell crash was real. He then told me about his work as a test pilot for the Navy. He also told me that many of these test pilots were admitted into the NASA program as Astronauts. He even told me of some of the “Experiences” of the astronauts, including Russian Cosmonauts, in space that were similar to his involving a series of paranormal experienes. The stories went on and on.
After a 4 hour exchange of stories, Edgar agreed to work with me in any project I decide to undertake. Just like Rudy, Edgar informed me as follows: “Rey, you need to start an organization to accomplish the mission YOUR ETs gave you”. He told me that I was given a “MANDATE”. He even informed me that he can get all the physicists in his Quantrek Foundation to assist us as well. All of these scientists are a “who’s who” in the field of Consciousness Studies and Quantum Physics. Once again, he told me that he will support me in any way possible with this new organization. I told Edgar, the same that I told Rudy, “I have no idea what this organization will do”. Edgar told me, “don’t worry, it will come to you, it always does”.
After my meeting with Dr. Mitchell, I sent an email to Mary Rodwell and told her what had happened 2 days after my ET Telegram and that Edgar and Rudy would be my “Scientific Advisors” with any organization I decided to start. Later than night we spoke on Skype and I informed Mary that Edgar and Rudy had encouraged me to start an organization. I asked Mary whether the 4 of us can become the Co-Founders of this organization and that Edgar and Rudy agreed to be our initial Science Technical Advisors. Mary agreed to join us and several days later Mary came up with the name “Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE)”.
I later informed Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Schild and Mary Rodwell and all agreed to be Co-Founders of FREE. Thus, FREE was started over a 3 day period under the guidance of some unknown Non-Human Intelligence.
Shortly thereafter, several academics and non academic researchers were interested in joining FREE. Within one month, we had some of the leading researchers in the field of ET Contact and Consciousness involved as official members of FREE. FREE did not have a formal governing structured but just a loose structure of volunteers.
In July of 2013, two months after I had my “ET Telegram” and FREE was formed, I wrote a paper titled “The Quantum Hologram Theory of ET Contact” which was reviewed and commented by 3 FREE physicists, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Rudy Schild, and Ralph Steiner. Each of them approved the paper for publication.
