Mitchell says that 90 % of all UFO incidents might be true and the governments are just hiding them and try to disinform the public about this reality.
Interstingly the above sentence is my translation of a phrase which is part of the German Wikpedia version but left out in the English one- which I experienced a few times while doing research.Mitchell nahm an der Apollo 14 Mission teil und er war der sechste Mensch auf dem Mond. Er äußerte sich mehrfach öffentlich positiv zur Existenz von Psi-Phänomenen, glaubt an die Wirksamkeit von Fernheilungen und hält 90 % der UFO-Sichtungen für tatsächliche Besuche von Außerirdischen, die organisiert vertuscht werden.[4
Institute of Noetic Sciences
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) was co-founded in 1973 by former astronaut Edgar Mitchell and industrialist Paul N. Temple to encourage and conduct research on human potentials. Institute programs include "extended human capacities," "integral health and healing," and "emerging worldviews."
This research includes topics such as spontaneous remission, meditation, consciousness, alternative healing practices, spirituality, human potential, psychic abilities and survival of consciousness after bodily death, among others.
Headquartered in Petaluma, California, the organization is situated on a 200-acre (80 hectare) campus which houses offices, a research laboratory, and a retreat center (originally the campus of World College West). The institute does not grant educational degrees.
The institute was co-founded in 1973 by Edgar Mitchell, an astronaut who was part of the Apollo 14 mission, wealthy industrialist Paul N. Temple and some others. During the three-day journey back to Earth aboard Apollo 14, Mitchell had an epiphany while looking down on the earth from space. "The presence of divinity became almost palpable, and I knew that life in the universe was not just an accident based on random processes ... The knowledge came to me directly," Mitchell said of that experience. Following his spaceflight, Mitchell and others founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Willis Harman served as its president from 1975 until his death in 1997.
Projects sponsored by the institute include a bibliography on the physical and psychological effects of meditation, a spontaneous remission bibliography, and studies on the efficacy of compassionate intention on healing in AIDS patients. The institute has also conducted a number of parapsychological studies into extra-sensory perception, lucid dreaming, and presentiment.
The institute conducts research programs in three principal areas:
Extended human capacities
Integral health and healing
Emerging world views
The institute publishes a quarterly magazine, Shift: At the Frontiers of Consciousness.
In February 2007, IONS announced a co-publishing agreement with New Harbinger Publications. Noetic Books  and New Harbinger partnered to publish books that incorporate science and focus on global issues, consciousness, spiritual and psychological wellness. Authors include Edmund Bourne, Charles Tart, and Marilyn Schlitz.
