CSER (Center for Speculative Event Research)


Founded in the early 2000’s by Ruthie J., CSER (Center for Speculative Event Research) has research facilities across the country, including underneath the Denver International Airport and on Wizard Island in Crater Lake, Oregon. Specializing in real-time experiments for clients including the United States Department of Justice, private universities, hospitals, insurance companies, and industrial manufacturers, CSER meticulously re-creates contentious scenarios in order to more closely analyze plausible outcomes. CSER’s services have been used to resolve high profile insurance claims, political assassinations, and human rights disputes.
