DR. RUDY SCHILD KICKS OFF SOUTH FLORIDA SCIENCE MUSEUM ’S LECTURESERIES
Series tackles science fact v. science fiction
( PALM BEACH , FL ) More than 125 people gathered at the Royal Poinciana Chapel, Palm Beach to kick off the South Florida Science Museum ’s Edgar Mitchell Science Lecture Series. Designed to take a look at the hard science side of issues you always wondered about, but were afraid to ask, the Museum’s inaugural event featured guest speaker, Rudolph E. Schild, PhD. and his lecture “Dark Matter and Dark Energy: The Force is Within You.”
“The Museum’s goal for this series is to present cutting edge work in the field of psychic research, a subject often ridiculed as unacceptable in respectable scientific circles,” said Lew Crampton, President and CEO of the South Florida Science Museum . “There’s a growing body of scientific work relating to the topic of consciousness and its role as the central, unifying concept behind the rational, objective mind and subjective knowing. Research over the last 50 years by several forward looking thinkers has shown that there is vast creative potential in the human mind that is as yet almost totally unrecognized by science. If, as these scientists seem to say, we are in constant and instantaneous contact with our environment, and if all information in the cosmos flows through our pores at every moment, then our current notion of our human potential is only a glimmer of what it could or should be.”
This event was generously underwritten by Palm Beach residents and Museum supporters, Michael and Suzanne Ainslie and Eric and Lucinda Stonestrom, and moderated by local scientist, APOLLO 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, PhD.
Dr. “Rudy” Schild is an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. A proponent of “magnetospheric eternally collapsing objects” (MECOs), an alternative to black holes, Schild was encouraged by Harvard colleague, John Mack, to investigate UFO abduction experiencers, who seemed to have knowledge of different kinds of energy in the universe. Because Schild could see a tie-in between their descriptions and an emerging astronomical view of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, he began learning about the connections between the Dark Energy and other topics not studied by university astrophysics.
The South Florida Science Museum ’s Edgar Mitchell Science Lecture Series will continue with three more lectures during the 2012-2013 season. Each guest lecturer in the series will be presented by local resident, Dr. Edgar Mitchell. As an astronaut, scientist, test pilot, naval officer, entrepreneur, author, lecturer and good friend of the South Florida Science Museum , Dr. Mitchell has devoted the last 38 years to studying human consciousness and psychic and paranormal phenomena in the search for a common ground between science and spirit.
Founded in 1961, the South Florida Science Museum recently celebrated its next 50 years of science in the community with a groundbreaking to launch museum expansion plans. The Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to exciting curiosity and furthering the understanding and appreciation of science and technology. It features more than 50 hands-on exhibits, a digital planetarium, fresh and saltwater aquariums, as well as natural history exhibitions. Each year the Museum welcomes more than 125,000 visitors and reaches more than 45,000 students through workshops at the Museum and outreach programs to local schools.
