controlled devices and psychokinetic switches. Roninie Sunshine told this researcher that some of Sauvin's switches were allegedly activated when Sauvin had an orgasm. Although the MRU bro-chure indicates that this research was directed toward the development of prosthetic devices for the severely disabled, the military's interest in a trigger which could be actuated by thinking the command to fire was obvious. Ronnie Sunshine met with Sauvin, indicated his interest, and hinted at his willingness to part with the Kirlian sche-matic, but asked if he could visit MRU's headquarters in Washington. Sauvin agreed, and in early 1973 Yippie Sunshine drove to Washington and went there late in the afternoon to see MRU Director Carl Schliecher. Without much difficulty my agent succeeded in talking Schlicher into letting him crash at the MRU offices, during which he "inspected" the available files and stole a number of documents, all of which he subsequently sold me in return for a video camera given to me by Tom Forcade. MANKIND RESEARCH UNLIMITED I. PHILOSOPHY AND PURPOSE Introduction Mankind Research Unlimited, Inc. was organized to collect, study, develop and apply extensive and proliferating data on what may be called the "frontiers of science". This data has come into being as a result of the cross-fertiliza-tion of various scientific fields which long had little or no direct contact with one another, and the re-examination of research areas which were previously ignored by academe as heterodox.- This orthodoxy of thought was also shared by many applied scientists in both industry and the government. Consequently, the probability of achieving technological and scientific breakthroughs by the use of innovative ideas and concepts, however imaginative or esoteric they might be, has gradually diminished to the point where, in certain critical areas, the United States is falling behind existing technological state of the art in other countries of the world, notably those in Eastern and Western Europe. Mankind Research Unlimited hopes to reverse this trend and serve both as a catalyst for and originator of new and creative ideas to stimulate research and technology applications in areas beneficial to mankind.
Based on our experience in systems concept development and technological forecasting, we feel this objective can be optimally attained through application of system engineering principles to direct, coordinate, and govern the activities and creative efforts of our multi-disciplinary team of scientists and experimenters.
The story of Mankind Research is the story of the paranoia of the Cold War.
