Later that month, Ernest and Ruth Norman founded the Unarius Academy of Science in Los Angeles. The aim of the organization? To spread and popularize the results of Ernest’s channeling sessions.
During these sessions Ernest claimed to receive messages from extraterrestrial entities and, equally bizarrely, figures from history. These messages formed the basis of the Unarius Science of Life Teachings. Apparently, they were a set of lessons designed to help individuals to overcome personal and emotional difficulties.
And at the core of the Normans’ philosophy was a belief in reincarnation. Unariuns were also taught that the Earth was once inhabited by advanced peoples that traveled between planets, and that these “space brothers” occasionally maintained contact.
