=== 11. UFO Organizations 

Throughout the world there are many civilian organisations which  
either have the study of UFOs or extraterrestrials as their main  
object of interest or include them as part of a wider remit.  Each  
organisation has a different view of the subject ranging from the  
basically scientific to, in some cases,the frankly nutty. 
 
This list is not exhaustive, but is fairly extensive.  The names of  
the officers and subscription rates of organisations may change and,  
unless the editor is informed, the updated information may not be  
available here. This is, of course, not the only list of organisations  
produced in the world.  Readers are urged to consult other lists as  
well such as the excellant list of UFO organisations produced by John  
A. Hayes for UFOnet.

11.36: North American Circle 

PO Box 61144, Durham, NC 27715-1144 

 
11.37: North American Institute for Crop Circle Research (NAICCR) 

NAICCR was formed in 1990 after requests for information about North 
American crop circles had reached epidemic proportions.  UFOROM 
associates, who had been regularly investigating reports and 
discoveries of UGMs (Unusual Ground Markings), including traces very 
similar to crop circles, responded to inquiries by formalising a  
sister group devoted to research into UGMs. 
 
NAICCR associates investigate UGMs rationally, and prepare reports on 
their findings.  NAICCR distributes a list of known North American 
UGMs, based on information provided to NAICCR by co-operative  
researchers throughout the continent.  A comparable list of British  
UGMs has never been available in this manner.  NAICCR also publishes  
an annual report of North American UGM activity, with analyses and 
commentary. 
 
NAICCR will continue to function in the future at about the present 
level of activity, though it would be preferred if UGM cases would 
once again be studied as special cases of UFO cases, as was the case 
before tthat category of UGMs was raised to a separate category  
because of British research.  NAICCR may perhaps merge back with  
UFOROM, if this is the case, since UFOROM had been investigating UGMs  
as a matter of course.

Founded in 1986          
 
History: 
ParaNet started on January 1, 1986 in a bulletin-board system called  
"The Other Side" It was one of the first BBS that gathered together  
various information for the pourpous of research on the paranormal. 
Jim Speiser was the Director of ParaNet 1986-88 at the time and 
wanted to bring together the three factions of paranormal debate 
(the skeptics, the believers, and the undecided) for public 
discussion of paranormal. He created ParaNet as neutral ground for 
the exchange of information on the paranormal.In 1988 Speiser turned 
over the directorship to Michael Corbin.  
 
Current Status 
ParaNet's basic goles are reflected in its motto:  "Answering  
Questions, Questioning Answers". ParaNet offers investigator's raw  
material, in the form of sighting reports, which comes from data  
supplied by the public. The network concept provides the investigators  
and its users with immediate, one-on-one contact, and instant access  
to a global communications medium. ParNet also keeps it users informed  
major, fast-breaking stories involving the paranormal. ParaNet can be  
accessed in six countries on three continents. 
 
The People of ParaNet 
ParaNet provides access to experts through their electronic system.  
Its research  branch is headed by Robert B. Klinn, a veteran  
investigator who worked for the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek. ParaNet also  
provides a conference on the UFO abduction experience hosted by Dr.  
David Jacobs, a UFO historian and author. Many different groups and  
researchers of the paranormal use Parenet for information exchange and  
discussion of ideas. Among some of them are the Bay Area Skeptics, the  
South Shore Skeptics, Marge Christenson, T. Scott Crain, Dan Drasin,  
Stan Gordon, Barry Greenwood, Budd Hopkins, Linda Howe, Phil Imbrogno,  
Dr. David Jacobs, Dr. Donald Johnson, Philip Klass,Bruce Maccabee,  
Maj. James McGaha, Dr. Mark Rodeghier, Robert Schaeffer, Tracy Torme,  
and Dr. David Webb, Don Ecker, Vicki Cooper and and many others. 
 
The Future of ParaNet 
In the future ParaNet plans to expan their network to even more  
cournties, increasing public education and scientific-oriented   
research and investigation unequaled in  the field. Their focus will  
be directed at bringing various credible existing organizations from  
around the world into a better organized research effort. ParaNet will  
also turn its attention to more investigative  reporting. Paranet  
plans to acomplish this unser their new organization known as  MICAP   
(Multi-national Investigations Cooperative on  Aerial Phenomena). (see  
MICAP) MICAP will be a separate non-profit research/educational  
vehicle with investigative ability.

phenomena to be incidents that appear to contradict existing  
scientific knowledge; regarded by the scientific community as being  
outside their established fields of inquiry. They use the "Journal of  
Scientific Exploration" as an avenue to discuss anomalous phenomena  
and present research results to the scientific and scholarly  
community; its members are drawn from practitioners of science 
who have acquired a first-hand knowledge and understanding of the 
scientific process. The Society holds annual international meetings  
and periodically scheduled regional meetings. 
 
To promote co-operation, and to accommodate other levels of activity  
and interest, the Society has created the categories of "Corresponding  
Member" and "Associate".  "Associates" receive the "Journal of

11.62: Ufology Research of Manitoba (UFOROM) 

UFOROM is a private, non-profit and volunteer organisation which is 
involved in rational discourse, investigation and research on UFOs and 
related phenomena. It was formed in 1975.  All types of UFO-related 
phenomena have been studied by UFOROM, including traces, crash- 
retrievals, abductions and cattle mutilations.  In addition, some  
UFOROM associates also study fortean and psychic phenomena.  UFOROM  
publishes an annual survey of UFO activity in Canada, comparable to  
the Ferrughelli reports on American cases.  Case data is provided by  
co-operative Canadian researchers across Canada.   
 
UFOROM is not open to general public membership.  However, independent 
investigators and researchers throughout North America and  
particularly in Canada are associated with UFOROM by way of their  
contributions of case information and data from their own areas.  Such  
contributions are welcomed and readily acknowledged by UFOROM. 
 
Although UFOROM does not publish a journal or newsletter for general 
distribution, associates frequently exchange information on an  
informal basis.  This information is made available through articles  
and reports published in UFO magazines or books, written or edited by  
UFOROM associates. 
 
UFOROM is associated with an irregular ufozine titled the SWAMP GAS 
JOURNAL. [See UFO Publications section]  It is available in hard copy 
through zine exchange or for a "cost" of one International Postal  
Reply Coupon per issue.  As an experiment, the most recent issue also  
has been made available in electronic format via INTERNET by posting a 
request to: rutkows@ccu.umanitoba.ca 
 
UFOROM associates are involved with the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO 
Studies (CUFOS), the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and various other 
organisations.  UFOROM functions independently, but operates with an 
understanding of complete co-operation and information exchange with 
interested and serious researchers in their specialised areas of 
interest. 
 
UFOROM is devoted to the rational and objective study of UFOs and 
related phenomena, as well as other controversial phenomena such as 
crop circles.  All views on these phenomena, including both proponent 
and contrary standpoints, are considered.  In this regard, UFOROM 
associates tend to engage in dialogue with both "believers" and 
"debunkers".  It is hoped that such attempts to "bridge the gap" 
between the two sides of the debate will encourage more constructive 
discourse.

Publishes the UNARIUS Light Magazine since1954. 
A non-profit, New Age organization which has pioneered the teaching of  
Past Life Therapy since 1954. This teaching is given to the student  
through a curriculum that attunes the truth seeker to the high  
frequency energy maintained by the authors, who are Advanced Spiritual  
Beings living on the Inner Planes. UNARIUS receives most of its  
information and instructions through channeling with the Higher Beings  
(Space Brothers).  
 
UNARIUS writes, publishes, and distributes a complete course of study  
describing the New Sciences of Life. This course material is covered  
over 100-plus texts of the UNARIUS Academy of Sciences; augmented by  
over 100 video programs. The course material covers missing piece's of  
man's prehistory, the enigma surrounding the dilemma of unresolved  
problems in science, politics and religion, and the future for mankind  
in the 21st century. Class sessions are held at the UNARIUS Center on  
Wednesdays & Sundays at 7:00 p.m.; class fee is S10.00. Some courses  
are also available on TV stations throughout California.  
 
All of the materials are directly related to the UNARIUS goal of  
achieving Higher Awareness. One of this group's main tenets is that  
there are superior extraterrestrial forces which control the Earth's  
destiny and which know the fate of mankind. With the teachings  
provided by UNARIUS, they feel that each person can become cosmically  
attuned to higher spiritual forces and can become aware of Reality and  
what is in store for humans. UNARIUS teaches that the Interplanetary  
Confederation, a coalition of 33 existing planets, is building 33  
spacecraft that will form a giant city and will descend to Earth in  
the year 2001. This "building" or "city" will descend on land  
purchased for this purpose in the southern California area and will be  
a gathering spot for people to come and learn about Cosmic Awareness. 
In addition to students, interested parties can join UNARIUS for  
$50.00 per year.

History: 
The "Australian Flying Saucer Research Society (Victorian Branch)" was

Flying Saucer Research Society" and later that year was reorganised as  
the "Victorian Flying Saucer Research Society" with Mr. Peter E.  
Norris L.L.B. as President. In 1968 the name was again altered - this  
time to the "Victorian U.F.O. Research Society". The current executive  
has been in place since 1978. The Society has held a dispassionate  
attitude on U.F.O.s, claiming it is a scientific problem deserving  
closer attention.  Membership of this Society - which maintains the  
largest membership of any U.F.O. organisation in the Southern  
Hemisphere - is open to all who are genuinely interested in the  
subject. 
 
Significant cases studied: 
        - The Frederick Valentich disappearance (1978).  Frederick 
Valentich was a twenty year old member of the Royal Australian Air  
Force who disappeared on a solo private flight across Bass Strait 
after radioing that an object was hovering on top of his Cessna 182. 
 
        - The Knowles Family Encounter.  The case of a family on a 
car trip across the Nullarbor Plain in South Australia who were 
buzzed by a UFO that at one stage lifted the Knowles car into the 
air only to drop it to the road seconds later.
