A conference on human potentiality awaits increased human
involvement before entering the world of the unknown.
Help is needed in planning the conference, according to Sue Tidball
of the United Ministries of Higher Education (UMHE). The conference
will be sponsored by Union Talks and Topic and UMHE.
Mrs. Tidball said the conference could include topics as diverse as
the potential for non-verbal communication, the development of the
inner self through mediation and UFOs.
"The conference can include just about anything someone wants to
slip in there," she said.
"We spend a lot of time studying outer space," she said. "This would
be the study of inner space, of the human mind, body and spirit."
The conference is scheduled to begin October 9 with Edgar Mitchell,
former astronaut, as the first speaker. Mitchell, according to Mrs.
Tidball, plans to establish a resource center on human potentiality in
She said students now are needed to help identify and develop local
resources, handle publicity and share their psychic experiences.
Mrs. Tidball said the conference might cover a topic a week with one
major speaker during the week and follow-up workshops, films and
Mrs. Tidball has been interested in psychic occurences for three
years and recently spent three months researching the subject, she said.
Students interested in working with the conference should contact
