Braude, Stephen – Professor

Stephen BraudeStephen Braude is Emeritus Professor and former Chair of Philosophy at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. He’s a past President of the Parapsychological Association, Editor-in-Chief of theJournal of Scientific Exploration, and the recipient of numerous grants and awards including a Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the F.W.H. Myers Memorial Medal from the Society for Psychical Research.
His earliest research was in logic and the philosophies of language and time. After that, he shifted focus to the evidence for psychic phenomena to see if it would provide new insights into traditional problems in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind. He also turned his attention to hypnosis and multiple personality, writing extensively on the unity of consciousness, psychopathology, and the nature of mediumship or “channeling.”
In addition to approximately 100 published articles, he’s written six books:ESP and Psychokinesis: A Philosophical Examination;The Limits of Influence: Psychokinesis and the Philosophy of Science;First Person Plural: Multiple Personality and the Philosophy of Mind;Immortal Remains: The Evidence for Life After Death; andThe Gold Leaf Lady and Other Parapsychological Investigations. His latest book isCrimes of Reason: On Mind, Nature and the Paranormal.

Fenwick, Peter Brooke Cadogan – Dr.

Peter Fenwick
Dr. Peter Brooke Cadogan Fenwick – President of the Scientific and Medical Network – is a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied Natural Science. He obtained his clinical experience at St Thomas’ Hospital

Career

Peter Fenwick was a senior lecturer at King’s College, London, where he worked as a consultant at the Institute of Psychiatry. He was the Consultant Neuropsychologist at both the Maudsley and John Radcliffe hospitals, and also provided services for Broadmoor Hospital. He worked with the Mental Health Group at the University of Southampton, and held a visiting professorship at the Riken Neurosciences Institute in Japan.
Peter is the president of the Horizon Research Foundation, an organisation that supports research into end-of-life experiences. Before this he was the President of the British branch of the International Association for Near-Death Studies.

Peter has been part of the editorial board for a number of journals, including the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry, the Journal of Consciousness Studies and the Journal of Epilepsy and Behaviour.

Near-death research

Fenwick’s interest in near-death experiences was piqued when he read Raymond Moody’s book Life After Life. Initially sceptical of Moody’s anecdotal evidence, Fenwick reassessed his opinion after a discussion with one of his own patients, who described a near-death experience very similar to that of Moody’s subjects. Since then, he has collected and analysed more than 300 examples of near-death experiences.

He has been criticised by the medical community for claiming that human consciousness can survive bodily death, but Peter argues, and the evidence supports, that human consciousness may be more than just a function of the brain.

“The plain fact is that none of us understands these phenomena. As for the soul and life after death, they are still open questions, though I myself suspect that NDEs are part of the same continuum as mystical experiences.

Fenwick and his wife, Elizabeth are co-authors of The Art of Dying, a study of the spiritual needs of near-death patients. The Fenwicks argue that modern medical practices have devalued end-of-life experiences, and call for a more holistic approach to death and dying. In 2003, Fenwick and Sam Parnia appeared in the BBC documentary The Day I Died. In the documentary Parnia and Fenwick discussed their belief that research from near-death experiences indicates the mind is independent of the brain.

Mukhopadhyay, A. K. – Professor.

Mukho's PhotoSince 1985, Prof. A. K. Mukhopadhyay has been engaged in developing a science for consciousness with a Worldview, which accommodates simultaneously Science, Humanity and Spirit in an unbroken wholeness (The Akhanda Worldview). He is the disciple of India’s neo-Vedantin Guru, Akhandamandaleswar Sri Sri Swami Swarupananda Paramahansa Dev, with whom he had worldly association for 20 years during his adolescence and early youth.

Born in 1953, Mukho is MBBS from the University of Calcutta (1977) and MD (1981) from India’s premier Medical Institute (AIIMS) at New Delhi where he served for 40 years on various capacities and last 12 years as Head of the Department of Laboratory Medicine, the department which, in addition to service like 10 million investigations per annum for patient care system of AIIMS hospital, runs MD and Ph.D. courses as service to students, and publishes qualitative research papers as service to science. Bangladesh as a Nation has emulated this AIIMS Model of Laboratory Medicine, developed by AIIMS–Mukhopadhyay leadership.

Mukhopadhyay-AIIMS knowledge leadership has given birth to a new science for consciousness, where consciousness is considered the most fundamental (and not neurogenic), having its own ontological, axiological, phenomenological and epistemological attributes that gel well with the complexity of systems cosmology (multiple universe and the systems of The Multiversity), systems psychology, systems neuroscience, systems biology and systems physics. Beginning his journey with  “supracortical consciousness” (1985), he authored The Dynamic web of Supracortical Consciousness (1987), Conquering the Brain (1995) and The Millennium Bridge (2000). He wrote extensively in Philosophical Volumes of Indian Council of Philosophical Research. He develops a Pentaune Model of Nature-consciousness,  Geometry of Information, Information Holography, a model of Systems Psyche with defined structure, interconnected operations and molecular links, the Ladder of Cognition, the Canvas of Cognition, the Layers between neuroscience and consciousness and the Milestones on the path from God particle to Consciousness, all of which has far reaching translational implications in harnessing of information-based energy, AI, AL, synthetic biology, psycho-somatic and personalized medicine. Mukho loves to wander across the landscape of human possibilities; on the tendencies of Homo sapiens to become Homo spirtualis.

Charles Tart

Charles T. Tart studied electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before deciding to become a psychologist.  He received his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1963, and then had two years of postdoctoral training with Ernest R. Hilgard at Stanford University.  He is Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto and Psychology at the University of California at Davis, and is internationally known for his research with altered states of consciousness, transpersonal psychology, and parapsychology. Tart’s 13 books include two that have been called classics, viz. “Altered States of Consciousness” (1969) and “Transpersonal Psychologies” (1975), as well as “On Being Stoned: A Psychological Study of Marijuana Intoxication” (1971), “States of Consciousness” (1975), “Symposium on Consciousness” (1975, with P. Lee, R. Ornstein, D. Galin & A. Deikman), “Learning to Use Extrasensory Perception” (1976), “Psi: Scientific Studies of the Psychic Realm” (1977), “Mind at Large: Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers Symposia on the Nature of Extrasensory Perception” (1979, with H. Puthoff & R. Targ), “Waking Up: Overcoming the Obstacles to Human Potential” (1986) “Open Mind, Discriminating Mind: Reflections on Human Possibilities” (1989), as well as more than 250 journal articles.  Recent books include “Living the Mindful Life,” (1994), which further explores the possibilities of awakening and “Body Mind Spirit: Exploring the Parapsychology of Spirituality” and, “Mind Science: Meditation Training for Practical People” (2000).  His most recent, “The End of Materialism: How Evidence of the Paranormal is Bringing Science and Spirit Together” was published in 2009 and is now available in paperback as “The Secret Science of the Soul” (2017).  As well as a laboratory researcher and popular teacher, he has been a student of Aikido, in which he holds a black belt, of meditation, of G. I. Gurdjieff’s work and other psychological and spiritual disciplines.  His primary goal is to build bridges between the best of the scientific and spiritual communities and to help bring about a refinement and integration of Western and Eastern  approaches for knowing the world and for personal and social growth, such as with his recent project (which has received the year 2000 award for the Best Social Innovation in the Science category from the Institute for Social Inventions) The Archives of Scientists’ Transcendent Experiences (TASTE) (www.issc-taste.org now at https://www.aapsglobal.com/taste/  ).  Full information is available at www.paradigm-sys.com.

Mario BeauregardMario Beauregard, PhD., is a neuroscientist currently affiliated with the Department of Psychology, University of Arizona. He has received a bachelor degree in psychology and a doctorate degree in neuroscience from the University of Montreal. He has also underwent postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Texas Medical School (Houston) and the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), McGill University.

Dr. Beauregard is the author of more than 100 publications in neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry. He was the first neuroscientist to use neuroimaging to investigate the neural underpinnings of emotion regulation. Because of his research into the neuroscience of consciousness, he was selected (2000) by the World Media Net to be one of the “One Hundred Pioneers of the 21st Century.” In addition, his groundbreaking research on the neurobiology of spiritual experiences has received international media coverage.

Being also an author, Dr. Beauregard has published The Spiritual Brain and Brain Wars. In these books, he demonstrates that mind and consciousness are much more than the activity of nerve cells in the brain.

Dr. Beauregard has participated in a dialogue with the Dalai Lama in regard to the science of the mind. He actively contributes to the articulation of the new postmaterialist scientific paradigm. Co-author of the Manifesto for a Postmaterialist Science, Dr. Beauregard is also the author of the Theory of Psychelementarity, and one of the founders of the Academy for the Advancement of Postmaterialist Sciences (AAPS).

She integrates leading edge science, research into consciousness and universal wisdom teachings into a wholistic WholeWorld-View. This underpins her work to facilitate transformational and sustainable resolutions to our collective and planetary issues, empowering fundamental change and sustainable solutions to global problems.

In 2010 she received the WON Circle Award cited for her ‘outstanding contribution towards planetary healing and expanding new forms of consciousness’. In 2014 she was invited to become a member of the Evolutionary Leaders Circle that includes Deepak Chopra, Barbara Marx Hubbard and Jean Houston. (www.evolutionaryleaders.net). She is a founding signatory of the Fuji Declaration and a founding participant in 2016 of the Soul of WoMen global campaign to heal and empower the integration of the divine feminine and masculine throughout humanity’s collective psyche. In 2016 she was also named as one of the 100 Women of Spirit by the Brahma Kumaris movement.

Her life-long research and study of leading-edge science, consciousness and the nature of reality is currently expressed in writing the Transformation Trilogy of books for a mainstream readership. The silver Nautilus award winning The Cosmic Hologram: In-formation at the Center of Creation (Inner Traditions, 2017) is the first of the three which Ervin Laszlo, who has written the foreword, calls a tour de force. It shares the imminent scientific revolution of an in-formed and holographic Universe and the unified nature of reality. Gaia: Her-Storyand Many Voices, One Heart will follow. These and the wholeworld-view perspective they articulate aim to empower the understanding, experiencing and embodying of unity awareness and serve transformational healing and change in the world.  www.judecurrivan.com;  www.wholeworld-view.orghttps://www.facebook.com/WholeWorldView/
