J.J. Hurtak (born James Joachim Hurtak, 1940) is an American social scientist, linguist, futurist, and author. Hurtak's work encompasses a diverse array of disciplines, including religion and philosophy, space law, environmental sciences, remote sensing, and unconventional theories in the fields of planetary sciences and archaeology. Through the "Academy for Future Science," Hurtak works internationally to encourage people to embrace new and emerging technologies.


Biography and education

Hurtak attended the University of Minnesota for his M.A. and Ph. D. in History and Oriental Studies (1968, post-graduate studies in 1990). He went on to complete a second Ph.D in Social Sciences and Linguistics at the University of California, Irvine in 1977. In 1992, He completed a M.Th. in early Greek-Coptic texts at Luther Seminary, with a thesis on Coptic language structure. He was a member of the original faculty at the California Institute of the Arts School of Critical Studies and is director and writer of the award-winning films Merkabah: Voyage of a Star Seed (1998), an animated film about merkabah mysticism, and Light Body (2005). He has appeared in several film documentaries, including Voices of the Amazon and Beyond (2012), The Hidden Hand (2013), and Solar Revolution (2012). Hurtak also collaborated with influential jazz musician Alice Coltrane on her album, Sacred Language of Ascension (2007) and collaborated with Steven Halpern for the album Sacred Name Sacred Codes (2012).

Hurtak has written and translated more than fifteen books, including commentaries on ancient mystical and gnostic texts such as the Pistis Sophia. In 2006 he co-authored The End of Suffering: Fearless Living in Troubled Times, with physicist Russell Targ. He was a consultant for Sidney Sheldon's bestseller, The Doomsday Conspiracy. In 1970, Hurtak participated at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. Hurtak says he seeks to bring cooperation between science and consciousness. Some of Hurtak's work can be seen as metaphysical and mystical in nature, overlaid by his extensive work in comparative religion and research on the topic of extraterrestrial life. In 1995, he was a speaker at the historic first disclosure conference in Washington D.C., "When Cosmic Cultures Meet," sponsored by the Human Potential Foundation and he has contributed to the Journal of Space Law published by the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air and Space Law and the Annals of Air and Space Law, McGill University.

The Academy for Future Science

In 1974, Hurtak and his wife founded the Academy for Future Science (AFFS), a non-profit organization and United Nations non-governmental organization, supporting technologies research and education, environmental studies, and philosophy.

Hurtak spoke at the United Nations Rio +20 Conference on Sustainable Development (Brazil, 2012). He and AFFS associates presented two new technologies at the UN World Summit for Sustainable Development (Johannesburg, 2002), and he also spoke at the United Nations 60th Annual DPI/NGO Conference on Climate Change (New York, 2007) where he and AFFS associates introduced new methods of water purification for developing countries.
