The Foundation is pursuing the following projects:

1. Astronomy and Climatology: The Foundation is investigating Galactic superwaves [cosmic ray outbursts from the Galactic Center] and their past effects on the Earth's climate and biosphere. Starburst is:

2. Physics and Astronomy:
The Foundation is researching subquantum kinetics, a new physics methodology that offers a novel approach to understanding nature at the quantum level. Starburst is:

3. Extraterrestrial Communication:
In his book The Talk of the Galaxy, Paul LaViolette presents evidence which suggests that radio pulars may be communication beacons of extraterrestrial intelligence origin and which may serve the dual purpose of a Galactic GPS system for interstellar navigation.  The Foundation is interested in further investigating evidence that pulsar signals may be conveying intelligent information.  Also we are interested in establishing contact with the civilizations that may be transmitting these signals.  Starburst encourages interested researchers to participate in the Open SETI collaborative study project outlined by Gerry Zeitlin.

4. Psychology and Education:
The Foundation has promoted the feeling tone conception of mental process, a novel theory that resolves the long-standing mystery of how the human mind is able to produce creative thought and that emphasizes the significant role feelings play in this process.
