Peter Phillips is a professor of Sociology at Sonoma State University and director of Project Censored Project Censored is a media research program working in cooperation with numerous independent media groups in the US. Project Censored’s principle objective is training of SSU students in media research and First Amendment issues and the advocacy for, and protection of, free press rights in the United States. Project Censored has trained over 1,500 students in investigative research in the past three decades.

Through a partnership of faculty, students, and the community, Project Censored conducts research on important national news stories that are underreported, ignored, misrepresented, or censored by the US corporate media. Each year, Project Censored publishes a ranking of the top 25 most censored nationally important news stories in the yearbook, Censored: Media Democracy in Action, which is released in September.

Peter Phillips is co-editor with Dennis Loo of the book, Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush and Cheney. He contributed a chapter entitledThe Global Dominance Group: 9/11 Pre-Warnings & Election Irregularities in Context to the book 9/11 and American Empire (Volume I) Intellectuals Speak Out. He has also helped to organize conferences around media accountability, and the most censored issues that threaten democracy and the world (Publicizing Truth with Consequence). At the Memphis National Media Reform Conference in January 2007, he spoke on the subject of the Independent media's poor coverage of stolen elections, impeachment, and 9/11 truth. This year his suggestions for panels and workshops were turned down and there were no speakers in the formal plenaries or workshops speaking about 9/11 truth (Although there was a well attended poster session where Peter did have a chance to speak.) He has much firsthand experience in breaking important issues into the mainstream and independent media.

Neil Slade is a musical composer, seasoned concert performer, author, and artist. He also has a very interesting website on 9/11- www.911Think.com and produced the film Captain Sherlock Solves 9/11. He attended Metropolitan State College, the University of Colorado, and the University of Denver, and graduated Magna cum laude in 1978. Certified by the State of Colorado to teach grades Kindergarten through 12, he has taught for 30 years (starting before graduation) privately and in the public school system. Beyond his classroom instruction, he has taught an estimated 25,000 individual music and art lessons to students ages 6 through 66.

Slade was assistant to Brain and Behavior Researcher T.D.A. Lingo, Ph.B., B.Sci. M.A., for 11 years at Colorado's Dormant Brain Research and Development Laboratory, established by director Lingo in 1957.

For several years, Slade was employed full time to create and present therapeutic creativity, music, and art workshops at many of Colorado's major psychiatric and medical treatment centers. This included West Pines Psychiatric Hospital, Ft. Logan Mental Health Center, Denver General Psychiatric Ward, Mt. Airy Psychiatric Hospital, Children's Hospital of Denver, Denver Head Injury Clinic, as well as many public and private facilities.

In an unprecedented original "Mind Music" program, Slade was employed by the principal of a Denver Public Elementary School to teach all 600 students and their teachers how to self-activate advanced levels of creativity, intelligence, and cooperative trust behavior by learning "brain basics". The program ended with teachers singing to their students and students dancing in the classroom.

Neil has recorded and released 9 albums of original pop/jazz/classical/avant garde music, and has written and published five printed books and three audio CD books on learning, creativity, and the brain, along with one of book of romantic poetry.

His books "The Frontal Lobes Supercharge" and "Have Fun are easy to use do-it-yourself manuals for turning on untapped areas of each and every persons' brain- "the other 90%". His revolutionary lessons let any person access pre-existing circuits for creativity, intelligence, and pleasure with methods and exercises proven under scientific investigation, as well as real world daily applications. "Have Fun" is a unique set of 35 "anti-rules" which reject common mis-perceptions and neutralizes common obstacles of doing and learning.

He has written about the psychology of 9/11 perception suggesting approaches which would move people towards a higher, creative, problem solving level of conscousness, simply by equating- "Truth = Justice = Freedom." His main website is http://www.neilslade.com/.

Additional resources on this topic have come to my attention- including Psychorelativity and mindfulness by Kevin Ryan, Faulty Towers of Belief: (Part I) Demolishing the Iconic Psychological Barriers to 9/11 Truth and Faulty Towers of Belief: (Part II) Rebuilding the Road to the Freedom of Reason (Both papers by Laurie Manwell were published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies.
