In 1970, Karen and Gerald DeGroot founded the DHARMA Initiative. It was financially backed by Danish industrialist and munitions magnate Alvar Hanso and his Hanso Foundation. The purpose of the Initiative was to create "a large-scale communal research compound where scientists and free-thinkers from around the globe could pursue research in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, and electromagnetism."

After The DHARMA Initiative

According to Thomas Mittlewerk, the DHARMA Initiative "failed". The whereabouts of this couple are unknown today but many theories have surfaced.
