We welcome Thomas Brophy Ph.D. a former staff research scientist at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, Boulder, with NASA interplanetary spacecraft projects, a National Science Foundation exchange scientist with the University of Tokyo and Japan Space Program. His work focused on the application of first principles of physics to planetary astrophysics problems. Thomas has developed theoretical understandings for data from the outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune), especially planetary rings and planetary dynamics as well as being involved in defining science goals for future space mission instrumentation. He devised a test of fundamental theories of planet formation by searching for extrasolar debris, that was reported on by Nature magazine. These Integral studies, together with practice of contemplative/yogic traditions, led to his book The Mechanism Demands a Mysticism, and subsequent publications, and invited presentations onIntegral theory and psychospiritual growth. He is former Dean of the California Institute for Human Science, a graduate school and research center dedicated to integrating the pyschospiritual and scientific worldviews. Recombining Integral philosophy with astrophysical dynamics led to his studies of the astro-archaeology of pre-history and proto-historic Egypt, and investigations into the origin of the Zodiac, and “Zodiac Ages” in early human cultures, and his book The Origin Map. His forthcoming book Black Genesis about the origins of the pharaohs from a mysterious star-ceremonialist African peoples, is co-authored with Robert Bauval. He now teaches Integral philosophy, physics, and archaeoastronomy, and is proprietor of a consulting business. He has published peer reviewed scientific articles in premier journals including Icarus, Mediterranean Journal of Archaeology and Archaeometry, IEEE Journal, Science.
