David Icke- Icke's core ideas are outlined in four books written over seven years: The Robots' Rebellion (1994), ...And the Truth Shall Set You Free (1995), The Biggest Secret: The Book that Will Change the World (1999), and Children of the Matrix (2001). The basic conspiracy theory is that the world is controlled by a network of secret societies referred to as the "Brotherhood," at the apex of which stands the "Illuminati" or "Global Elite." The Global Elite controls the Brotherhood and the world using what Icke calls a "pyramid of manipulation," consisting of sets of heirarchical structures involving banking, business, the military, education, the media, religion, drug companies, intelligence agencies, and organized crime.

John W. DeCamp- Fluent in six languages and a law school graduate, John DeCamp, a native of Nebraska, went into the Army during the Vietnam War as an infantry captain and was later assigned to serve as a top staff aide to the Deputy U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam, William Colby, who was later named CIA director. Colby remained a close and life long friend of DeCamp. In 1974, during the closing days of the Vietnam War, DeCamp won election to the Nebraska state senate campaigning (while still stationed in Vietnam) on a platform saying that if the U.S. government was not going to permit America's military to win the war, it was time to bring the war to an end. In 1975, DeCamp initiated Operation Baby Lift, which evacuated 2,800 orphaned Vietnamese children to safety. DeCamp served four terms in the state senate where he was described by The Omaha World Herald newspaper as the most powerful and effective member of the legislature. The Associated Press once described DeCamp as one of the 10 most influential people in Nebraska. Since taking on his investigation of the Franklin Savings & Loan debacle and its connection to high-level criminal activity, involving the laundering of funds for the CIA's Iran-contra arms-and-drugs smuggling operation and the sexual abuse of children used to compromise U.S. politicians in Nebraska and Washington, D.C., DeCamp is regularly reviled by the same newspaper that once praised him so thoroughly.

Carl Jung- Jung's unique and broadly influential approach to psychology emphasized understanding the psyche through exploring the worlds of dreams, art, mythology, world religion and philosophy. Though not the first to analyze dreams, he has become perhaps the most well known pioneer in the field of dream analysis. Although he was a theoretical psychologist and practicing clinician for most of his life, much of his life's work was spent exploring other realms: Eastern vs. Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, sociology, as well as literature and the arts. Jung also emphasized the importance of balance. He cautioned that modern humans rely too heavily on science and logic and would benefit from integrating spirituality and appreciation of the unconscious realm.

According to the government's version of events, as part of the MKULTRA experiments, Olson was dosed with LSD without his knowledge, and he suffered a nervous breakdown. The CIA sent him to New York to see one of their psychiatrists, who recommended that Olson be placed into a mental institution for recovery. On his last night in Manhattan, Olson purportedly threw himself out his hotel room window. He fell to the pavement ten stories below and died.

He also devoted much of his life to alchemy, divination, and Hermetic philosophy. Dr. Dee straddled the worlds of science and magic just as they were becoming distinguishable. Ian Fleming modeled his 007 James Bond character on, the first and perhaps the best secret agent of the crown, Dr.John Dee. The 007 was the insignia number that Elizabeth was to use for private communiques between her Court and Dee. Dee began to allude to his search for knowledge through the angels in 1581 when he mentioned in his personal diary that God had sent "good angels" to communicate directly with his prophets. This resulted in what is now called "Enochian Magick."

Immanuel Velikovsky- His books primarily used comparative mythology and ancient literary sources (not least the Bible) to propose that the Earth had suffered catastrophic close-contacts with other planets in the solar system (principally Venus and Mars), during and before recorded history. He argued that electromagnetic effects played an important role in celestial mechanics. He also proposed a revised chronology of Ancient Egypt, Greece, Palestine and the Near East, aiming to eliminate so-called Dark Ages and reconcile Biblical history with both archeology and Egyptian chronology.
John Anthony West- Author, lecturer, and guide, John Anthony West delivered a seismic shock to archaeology in the early 1990's when he and Boston University geologist Robert Schoch revealed that the Great Sphinx of Giza, Egypt, showed evidence of rainfall erosion. Such erosion could only mean that the Sphinx was carved during or before the rains that marked the transition of northern Africa from the last Ice Age to the present interglacial epoch, a transition that occurred in the millennia from 10,000 to 5000 BC.
John W Keely- John Ernst Worrell Keely announced that he had discovered a principle for power production based on the musical vibrations of tuning forks. He claimed that music could resonate with atoms or with the ether. After Keely's death, journalists and engineers went to his laboratory to investigate his machines; Keely's supporters had already appropriated most of them, though they failed to make them work. Engineer Alexander Scott and Clarence Moore, son of Clara Bloomfield-Moore, examined the building. Inside the walls they found mechanical belts linked to a silent water motor two floors below the laboratory. In the basement there was a three-ton sphere of compressed air that ran the machines through hidden air pressure tubes. Keely's supporters continue to claim that he was framed.

Phil Schneider- Philip Schneider claimed to be an ex-government structural engineer who was involved in building underground military bases around the United States (possessing "Rhyolite Clearance"), and to be one of only three people to survive an incident that occurred in 1979 between Grey aliens and U.S. military forces at the Dulce underground base. For the last two years of his life, Schneider gave lectures about government cover-ups, black budgets, and UFOs. Schneider was never able or willing to prove his allegations (e.g. showing the entrance to Dulce Base). Schneider was found dead in his Wilsonville, Oregon apartment on January 17, 1996. He had apparently been dead for several days (perhaps up to a week), and reportedly had a rubber hose wrapped three times around his neck. Regardless of such rumors, Tim Swartz writes that "Clackamas County Coroner's office initially attributed Philip Schneider's death to a stroke." Some suggest Schneider was murdered. He suffered multiple physical illnesses (osteoporosis, cancer, injuries). Officially, suicide is the cause of death.

Robert Anton Wilson- While he has primarily published material under the name Robert Anton Wilson, he has also used the pennames Mordecai Malignatus, Mordecai the Fowl, Reverend Loveshade, and other names associated with the Bavarian Illuminati, which he allegedly revived in the 1960s. His best-known work—The Illuminatus! Trilogy (1975), co-authored with Robert Shea—humorously examined American paranoia about conspiracies. These books mix true information with imaginative fiction to engage the reader in what Wilson called "Operation Mindfuck".

Wilhelm Reich- In the 1930s, Wilhelm Reich, M.D.—an Austrian psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and scientist—discovered a powerful, new biological energy, and for the next two decades devoted his life to the investigation of its laws and properties. Reich confirmed the existence of this energy in the human body, verified its presence in the atmosphere, developed instrumentation to observe and collect it, and harnessed it for a variety of purposes from cancer treatment to motor power to weather experimentation. Reich called his discovery “orgone energy.” But, sadly, it was a discovery that the world was not ready for.

Aldous Huxley- He was a member of the famous Huxley family who produced a number of brilliant scientific minds. Best known for his novels and wide-ranging output of essays, he also published short stories, poetry, travel writing, and film stories and scripts. Through his novels and essays Huxley functioned as an examiner and sometimes critic of social mores, societal norms and ideals, and possible misapplications of science in human life. While his earlier concerns might be called "humanist," ultimately, he became quite interested in "spiritual" subjects like parapsychology and mystically based philosophy, which he also wrote about. By the end of his life, Huxley was considered, in certain circles, a 'leader of modern thought'.
Carl Sagan- was an American astronomer, astrobiologist, and highly successful science popularizer. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI).

A book to accompany the program was also published. He also wrote the novel Contact, upon which the 1997 film of the same name starring Jodie Foster was based. In his works, he frequently advocated skepticism, humanism, and the scientific method.
John C. Lilly- Lilly was a qualified physician and psychoanalyst. He made contributions in the fields of biophysics, neurophysiology, electronics, computer science, and neuroanatomy. He invented and promoted the use of the isolation tank as a means of sensory deprivation. He was also a pioneer in attempting interspecies communication between humans and dolphins. His eclectic career began as a conventional scientist doing research for universities and government. But as he followed his own enquiries, Lilly delved into what mainstream science considers fringe areas.
Ken Wilber- His philosophy focuses mainly on creating an "integral theory of consciousness" in which he tries to take the knowledge from diverse fields such as psychology, mysticism, postmodernism, empirical science and systems theory to show how he believes these fields come together to form a coherent picture of the Kosmos. In Kosmic Consciousness, Wilber states that he considers himself a storyteller and a mapmaker; his stories address universal questions and his maps integrate various perspectives of the cosmos. He has been a pioneer in the development of Integral psychology and Integral politics. He is a practicing Buddhist, and the insights of Madhyamika Buddhism, particularly as articulated in the philosophy of Nagarjuna, underpin his philosophical position and work.
