The Science of Interconnectedness & Consciousness
Here's another presentation from a scientist, Cassandra Vieten, PhD, who works at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, discussing the scientific evidence for connection between people, and between people and matter. Very interesting!
This is the YouTube description:
"Cassandra Vieten, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist, Director of Research at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, co-director of the Mind-Body Medicine Research Group at California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute, and co-president of the Institute for Spirituality and Psychology. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, the State of California, and several private donors and foundations, her research has focused on spirituality and health; development and pilot testing of mindfulness-based approaches to cultivating emotional balance (primarily in the areas of addiction and pregnancy/postpartum well-being); and factors, experiences, and practices involved in psychospiritual transformation to a more meaningful, compassionate, and service-oriented way of life. Her primary interest lies in how psychology, biology, and spirituality interact to affect experience and behavior. For more information on Cassandra and her work visit - http://noetic.org/"
And here's another, related talk from IONS, by Dr Helané Wahbeh. This presents some of the same data, as well as evidence from the Global Consciousness Project (http://global-mind.org/), which looks at the effects of major events on earth on the random numbers generated in recording devices across the world. In addition the results from scientific studies into channelling spirits are presented.
Here is the YouTube description:
"While our materialistic paradigm would have us believe that our consciousness is housed in our physical brain and does not extend beyond it, there is growing evidence that this is actually not true. This is a presentation that was given in February 2016 to the Chinmaya Mission in Princeton, New Jersey."
