     In recent years, science and philosophy have seen a resurgence of open-mindedness toward deeper views of consciousness. Today Adrian reads from Origins of Consciousness, a book exploring ideas and evidence now changing the way scientists and philosophers approach the place of consciousness in the universe.

Origins of Consciousness is now available on Amazon.

PRAISE FOR OOC..

"Origins of Consciousness is visionary, prophetic, grounded in comprehensive scholarship -- and beautifully written. It is without a doubt one of the best treatments of consciousness I have read. No one in the 21st century can consider themselves educated without an awareness of the evidence presented in this book."

Larry Dossey, MD
Adrian Nelson has given us a remarkably insightful and highly readable account of current thinking about consciousness, and its profound influence on the entire scope of our new understand of reality.

Allan Leslie Combs Ph.D.
 
"This book is a rare, comprehensive & insightful reading for anybody interested in an in-depth analysis of the current status of consciousness studies. Well informed and courageous in outlining and seeking unanswered questions. A great roadmap for the traveller in the fields of contemporary consciousness studies. It can also serve very well for a concise textbook for graduate or advance master's courses in philosophy. The author offers his wise insight with a fresh point of view."

Basios Vasileios Ph.D.
 
 For anyone interested in consciousness studies, Nelson's "Origins of Consciousness" is a must-read. Comprehensive in nature, this book will prove valuable for a wide spectrum of readers, ranging from the lay reader to scholarly authority. The insight and quality of this book is exceptional.

New Experiments Reveal Mind affects Reality [VIDEO]

The mysterious role of observers
 in quantum mechanics has been hotly debated for over a century. Some well-known and respected physicists urge that consciousness could play a central role in quantum measurement, while others dismiss such notions with disdain.

New evidence is now surfacing that suggests consciousness may indeed be relevant to quantum mechanics after all. Dean Radin Ph.D., at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, has designed a new series of experiments that approach the classic double-slit experiment in a unique way. In ordinary circumstances, particles will behave as objects or waves depending on whether they are observed. The big question is why.

In the video below, Dean outlines his extraordinary experiments using a double-slit, which show the wave-pattern of particles is reduced simply when people direct their attention toward the system. This occurs without any ordinary physical contact with the instrumentation. This surprising evidence not only supports a consciousness-involving interpretation of quantum mechanics; it also offers further compelling validation that extended capacities of the mind, known by researchers as ‘psi’, are real.

Dean’s presentation was at the prestigious Science of Consciousness conference in Tucson, Arizona, to an audience of some of the most respected philosophers and scientists of our time. It’s a promising sign that deeper views of consciousness are finding their way into the mainstream, and a shift in thinking could be on the horizon.

This one’s not to be missed!
