We packed our bags and headed down to Los Angeles, California where Sheldon Reynolds welcomed us into his recording studio. Sheldon is best known as the Former Lead Guitarist of Earth, Wind & Fire.

Have you ever wondered if we are alone in this universe? With influences like Star Trek, Star Wars, and modern Sci-Fi shows, the human race has taken quite an interest in the possibility. Recently, Sheldon has started a project called The Search for Life. His interest in the possibility of life outside of our planet spurred a desire in him to support organizations and companies that have a hand is searching for extraterrestrials. Organizations like SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence)  and companies like Synopsys are just two examples.

Sheldon Reynolds: “Hearing a signal from somewhere else would at least bring a certain amount of curiosity. It answers a lot of questions. I grew up being the one who wanted to know the origins of life. . . .  It’s always been a part of my life, and I just wanted to share that with people. . . . I wanted to be someone who helps . . . to bring a higher sense of conciousness to everybody.”

During his show, Sheldon talks about:

  • The Search for Life Project
  • How organizations like SETI are searching for life.
  • What will happen if we find a signal that we believe is from extraterrestrial intelligence.
  • Whether or not we are sending out signals into space.
  • What inspired Sheldon to get involved with the search for life outside our planet.
  • How you can get involved and support The Search for Life.
