1. Are we alone in the universe (he has done much research on UFOs)
2. Does consciousness survive physical death
So now he is using his money to try and find convincing evidence of number 2 above.
https://www.mysterywire.com/mysteries/b ... dies-bics/Las Vegas businessman Robert Bigelow is once again making headlines around the world. This week he announced the formation of the Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies (BICS).
Along with BICS he announced a global essay contest. BICS is seeking input from scientists, religious scholars, consciousness researchers, and anyone else who can provide evidence of an afterlife.
As an incentive, BICS will award $500,000 for the top essay, $300,000 for the second best, and $150,000 for third place.
Now, the New York Times is taking an interest in Bigelow’s challenge.
