What is consciousness? It’s an age-old question that still stretches the limits of science. Is consciousness a form of energy? Christian de Quincey has dedicated a career to exploring this puzzle — philosophy’s “hardest problem,” science’s “final frontier,” and spirituality’s “deepest mystery.” Using the Four Gifts of Knowing, he guides us into this perennial mystery. Join Dr. de Quincey to explore different theories of consciousness, how mind and body are related, and how consciousness can make things happen in the physical world.
Daryl Bem, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Cornell University, has published on several diverse topics in psychology, including psi (ESP), attitudes and public opinion, group decision making, self-perception, personality theory, and sexual orientation. In this teleseminar, he provides an insightful overview of psi research, definitions, and experiments.
When you think of meditation, do you picture a passive spiritual practice that takes decades to show benefit? Think again. Today, leading Western doctors are prescribing meditation for everything from chronic pain to cancer prevention.
Join Stephan Schwartz in dialogue with IONS Senior Scientist Dean Radin on "Remote Viewing: A Modern Mental Martial Art."
Stephan is one of the world's experts on the practical applications of remote viewing and other aspects of extraordinary human functioning. For almost twenty years he was the research director and chairman of the Mobius Society. The laboratory carried out research into remote viewing, creativity, therapeutic intent, and other areas of human performance.
Dean Radin hosts this discussion with Diane Powell on why some people are more psychic than others. Although research suggests that all of us are capable of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and other psychic experiences, the occurrence among us varies tremendously. Dr. Powell discusses her investigation of this question and the consistent patterns of brain activity associated with psi.
