It is with great sadness that we inform you that Captain Bruce Cathie, Pilot, UFO and Harmonic Mathematics researcher and author has passed away.

Film maker James Colmer who made the documentary "The Harmonic Code" about Bruce's life and work writes on Facebook: It is with great sadness that I learned yesterday of Bruce's passing.

Those of you who have seen The Harmonic Code documentary we made, or read any of his books will appreciate his intelligence, dedication and tireless research that has inspired may people including myself over the years. It's extremely heartbreaking for me personally, because we were unable to raise the funds in time to start work on our main project together, which is a Feature Film based on his life's story, entitled Antigravity.

I have been working away on it now behind the scenes with Bruce, and also in my spare time for almost 17 years now, and I would dearly have loved to have been able to complete it before he passed away. The important thing now to honour his memory, is not to give up on it, but to continue on, and see that his dream is fulfilled. I am very honoured to have known Bruce, and my thoughts are with Wendy and their children.

Regards, James Colmer

The editor of Nexus Magazine Duncan Roads has written this about Bruce: Capt Bruce Cathie died last night. Not many people realise the impact that man had upon my life. I was 17 years old in the late 70s, still in high school, when a copy of "Harmonic 288" landed in my lap - and it 'spoke' to me. I understood it, and the implications.

That single solitary book set me on a journey which resulted in me sitting here writing this. I would never have become an activist, a conference organiser, or a publisher or opinionated bigmouth - had it not been for the work of this man. In the early 80s I saved my pennies to travel to NZ to meet him. He was the equivalent of a rock star icon to the young me then - I literally worshipped the man. He let me into his life and I saw how humble and full of integrity he was.

Since then, I have spent decades trying to encourage other researchers to fully comprehend the work and implications of this amazing man, but so few resonated to it. The first conference I ever organised had only Bruce Cathie (and Stan Deyo) as the speakers, and that event gave me the wings to do more. Bruce Cathie - you were the biggest inspiration in my life, and I am going to be grateful for our friendship for ever. Thank you.
