The Foyle Research Institute of Monaco (FRIM) is a non-profit organization founded and headed by Christopher Foyle, a philanthropist from the United Kingdom, who lives in the European Principality of Monaco. Together with other philanthropists in Monaco and elsewhere in the world, Mr. Foyle and FRIM is dedicated to making transformative changes in the service of humanity.

Space is the last great frontier of human endeavor, which we have only begun to explore. Our sun (and solar system, including earth) is a star on the outer edges of the Milky Way galaxy, which itself is composed of billions of stars. And the Milky Way galaxy is only one of billions of other galaxies with just as many stars, most of which probably have planets, which are slowly being discovered, but can’t be seen with our limited technology, because they are so small and far away.

On the basis of probability alone FRIM assumes that humans are not the only intelligent beings in the Universe, and that there are undoubtedly intelligent extraterrestrial beings  in other civilizations on planets elsewhere in the Universe. Moreover, some of these civilizations are probably far more technologically advanced than humans, have probably developed advanced methods of interstellar propulsion and travel, and may have visited earth, recently, or in the distant past.

Please note that we are decidedly not interested in supporting projects attempting to prove to mainstream academia, politicians, government agencies, or anyone else either the existence of extraterrestrial beings or their visitations to earth. As noted above, we assume this to be true, and are moving beyond that to develop the technology that could be used for space exploration and interstellar travel by humans.


About Christopher Foyle

Christopher Foyle is a businessman, philanthropist and a writer. He took over the Foyles, his eponymous family bookshop in 1999 when it was on its last legs and, together with the management that he put in place, turned around and greatly expanded it. In 1977 he founded and grew, for 30 years, the Air Foyle Group of specialist passenger and cargo airlines. He has chaired a number of national and international aviation trade organisations and charities. He has written four books and contributed to two others. He is financing two fauna and flora research projects in the rain forests of Indonesia. He is founding the Foyle Research Institute to examine and investigate scientifically, anomalous phenomena.

I cannot explain nor justify this. It is just a feeling. I believe that ‘God’ exists. I recognise that I could be wrong and that God does not exist. I am insignificant and incapable of understanding or knowing ‘God’. The human consciousness and intelligence are so limited, that we cannot even conceive, understand or know what such a forceful being is; so it is unknowable, therefore; I must be agnostic. I cannot ‘know’ something that is beyond human comprehension and the observation of material phenomena. Christians will say that we ‘know’ God as manifested by the Holy Spirit and revealed to us by Jesus Christ. Maybe.

What do we mean by ‘God’? It is probably a word which means many different things to many different people. I take it to be some form of Supreme Organising Force. It is in everything and is everything. It never began and will never end, so it is infinite in time. It goes on forever from any point to everywhere in the Universe, so it is infinite in space, but is space-time as humans understand it, merely a human construct? Cosmologists today talk not about one universe, but multiverses, and not three dimensions or four, if you include time, but eleven dimensions. Maybe there are an infinite number of universes. There are worm holes and non-locality in quantum mechanics, where an object can be in one place and in another place billions of miles away at the same time. So if God exists, then he exists in all these spaces and dimensions, and more beyonds that we can even conceive of.

Christians, Muslims, Jews and others assert that they do “know”. They refer to their “scriptures” as their authority for what they claim and as the gold standard revelation of God and his teachings. The scriptures are given respect and reverence, but mainly, it would seem, because they are ancient and in some way almost mystical. However why, just because they are old compared to ‘now’, should they hold more authority than the sayings and teachings uttered by human beings today rather than 2,000 years ago? What additional authority do 2 or 3 or even 4,000 years give to a person? Scriptures are words written by human beings. Whose authority do we take that asserts that such utterances are, in fact, the words of God as opposed to those of the men who utter them.

As humans searching and thirsting for truth and meaning,  we are not only constrained by the limits of our consciousness, intellect, understanding and knowledge, but also by our humanly constructed language – our words.

Why, for instance, is God a ‘he’? Why not a ‘she’ as in some of the early Mediterranean civilisations? Or a gender neutral ‘it’ or ‘they’? The very word suggests an anthropomorphic male figure. If God exists, then it is an eternal force that permeates, and indeed is, the entire infinite universe and multiverses, and not some anthropomorphic extension or visualisation of a male hominid from planet Earth, who imagines that his is the only world in the quadrillions of potential solar systems in the multidimensional universes.

On the one hand religious fundamentalists of various kinds assert vigorously, or even aggressively, that they ‘know’ that their various beliefs are right, whilst on the other hand, Dawkins, Hawking et al profess that scientists almost know everything now, and ‘know’ that God cannot exist. Not much humility there. The scientist Rupert Sheldrake in ‘The Science Delusion’ would beg to disagree.
