Dr. Swanson is an MIT and Princeton educated physicist. He has worked as a conventional applied
physicist for more than twenty years, and has conducted extensive research into the physics of the
paranormal. This research has involved underwater archaeology in Biminis, scientific measurements in
haunted houses, experiments in remote viewing and psychokinesis, and testing of new devices which
can measure these strange forces. He has also written a book, The Synchronized Universe-New
Science of the Paranormal, describing the scientific revolution he believes is underway.

Swanson will take us on a voyage into a new era of science. Although he believes that Old beliefs die hard, he shows us an
exciting, much larger world out there waiting for the “new physics� to sail into it…an exciting world with undreamed-of

Swanson states in his book, “The Synchronized Universe- New Science of the Paranormal�, in the early days of a scientific
revolution, the evidence is always incomplete. Just as during the time when electricity was first studied, it is seldom possible to rely
solely on rigorous scientific experiments. Before there was a Michael Faraday in his laboratory, meticulously measuring and
quantifying the electric and magnetic force so accurately, there was a Benjamin Franklin with his kite in a thunderstorm. And
before that, there were five thousand years of people walking across carpets on dry days and receiving electrical shocks. Before
the rigorous scientific research came the anecdote, the story and the example.

Appropriate instruments to measure paranormal phenomena will probably evolve as our understanding of the phenomena evolves.  
This is how it was with electricity and with gravity, as well as with the nuclear forces. Until we reach that stage, it is important that
we include a liberal sprinkling of anecdotes and accounts by credible individuals of their anomalous experiences. These experiences
are like Franklin and his kite. They demonstrate that a phenomenon is there, and that it has certain general characteristics. It is the
first step in developing a scientific understanding. There is a sufficiently large body of such first-person data by highly credible
witnesses that it should not be discounted. This date provided important clues which can help science to feel its way to a more
systematic and rigorous approach in the future.

Unfortunately, in the beginning of a paradigm shift, most scientists have no interest in conducting experiments on these â
€œoutlandishâ€� topics. They know that if they do, they will lose their funding, be unable to publish, and may even find their
academic careers in jeopardy.  Control of Research funding has become highly centralized, with the U.S. government controlling
most pure research money. In some cases this money is controlled by groups of scientists with vested interest in their own long-
standing research areas. In other cases, military secrecy prevents controversial new, potentially powerful technologies from being
funded in an open, public forum. Scientists along with the American public have been educated to view these areas of anomalous
research with contempt and ridicule, which further compounds the difficulty in addressing this phenomenon with rigorous and
unbiased scientific analysis.  All these factors contribute to the absences of a completely satisfying study of these topics.

Dr. Swanson will be speaking on the topics covered in his book:
Paranormal through Science; The Hopi Prophecy; The Conflict of Spiritualism and Materialism; Types of Evidence; Remote
Viewing Breaking Space and Time Barriers; The NASA ESP Experiments; Government Interest in ESP; ESP in Police Work; ESP
Among Ancient and Traditional Cultures; The Effect of Time and Position on ESP; Psychokinesis: Mind over Matter; Thought
Photography; Fire walking; The Backster Effect: Cell-to-cell communication; The Power of Group Consciousness; Levitation;
Teleportation and Bilocation; The Physics of an Adept; Proof of the Physical Reality of the OBE;  Parallel Dimensions; NDE: Near
Death Experiences; The Science of the Soul: Time and Prophecy; Speeding Up and Slowing Down Time; The Apocalypse;  
Examples of Precognitive Messages; The Gift of Prophecy and the Near-Death Experience; The Synchronizing Principle; Four-
Dimensional Holography;  The Holographic Brain; Physics of Meditation and Prayer; Phase Shifting; Parallel Universes; Alternate

Mary Sutherland is an author and researcher focusing her work
on consciousness studies, ancient history and unusual
phenomena. She is a "hands on" researcher and the creator of
one of the largest website on the internet with hundreds of
pages providing information on the paranormal, UFOs, ancient
races and their cultures, sacred sites and power points of the
world, underground tunnels and cave systems, dimensional
worlds , metaphysics, etc. The governor of Kentucky
commissioned her as a ‘Kentucky Colonel” for her work on the
ancient sites of Kentucky. For the last 5 years, she has been
exploring, mapping and documenting the ancient underwater
structures of Rock Lake – near Aztalan. For the last fourteen
years she has been documenting the ancient sites around
Burlington, WI. Truth is her passion. She believes it is through
truth that we will break ourselves free of our present
entanglements in life. When we become free, we will create our
own ‘personal story’ of the ‘hero’s journey’ suggested by Joseph

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank
Joseph .
Joseph was nominated by Japan's Savant Society as
Professor of World Archaeology. He was editor-in-chief of
Ancient American Magazine from 1993 to 2007 and has
traveled the world collecting research materials for his
twenty-seven published books.
"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
