Project LUCAS Summary - Borderland Sciences SETI Project

Project LUCAS was initiated by BSRF in 1996 and is dedicated to the work of the late Dr. L. George Lawrence - pioneer in Remote Biological Sensing (RBS) techniques applied to the capture of Interstellar Communications (ICOMM).


The project’s purpose is to explore alternative methods in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), and to continue with Dr. Lawrence’s work in RBS and ICOMM.


Our approach differs from the science of radio astronomy - a technology which is limited due to the necessity of obeying the confines of the electromagnetic spectrum. Dr. Lawrence recognized this limitation, and sought to overcome it by introducing a means of communication which was not bound by conventional electromagnetic laws.


Biological or Biodynamic communication, as Lawrence called it, found its medium completely outside of the electromagnetic spectrum, and therefore solved many of the problems facing the prevailing radio-astronomical methodology of interstellar communication.

Dr. Lawrence stated that advanced galactic cultures may communicate by a method now lost to our civilization - biodynamic communication - where the biodynamic energy transfer acts as the carrier, and the patternate content could then be interpreted as the modulation.


As an alternative to conventional radio reception, biodynamic information appears to be transmitted in a longitudinal point-to-point fashion. One wouldn’t have to wait light years for the reception of a message - it could be nearly instantaneous.

The need for better equipment, and constant monitoring are essential to Project LUCAS, but without proper funding, may be delayed for several years. Still, we continue experimentation on the transfer of biological information, and are continuously working toward the further development of practical applications of this technology.


Working outside of the electromagnetic spectrum into the domain of biological energies opens up a vast new area of research in many cases exceeding the singular employment of interstellar communications.


Technologies which could arise from this pursuit are manifold, and applications such as point-to-point terrestrial and extraterrestrial communications, and portable biodynamic detectors are certain to be a part of the near future.
