The PEAR Program : Combining Engineering and Consciousness — Princeton University has long attracted some of the finest minds in the world, including the likes of Einstein and John Nash of “A Beautiful Mind” fame. But did you know that some of the brightest and the best spent years there researching topics such as remote viewing, how the mind affects matter, random event generators and the existence of a global consciousness?
These scientists include Dean Radin, Russell Targ and others who accomplished groundbreaking work at Princeton at what was called the PEAR program, before it closed last year. In her groundbreaking book, “The Field,” author Lynne McTaggart interviewed many of the researchers and gave an overview of their projects.
From the PEAR website: “ The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) program, which flourished for nearly three decades under the aegis of Princeton University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, has completed its experimental agenda of studying the interaction of human consciousness with sensitive physical devices, systems, and processes, and developing complementary theoretical models to enable better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of physical reality.”
Since the closing of the program, recent efforts have moved to a new organization, the International Consciousness Research Laboratories, or ICRL. ” ICRL promotes, encourages, and advances the study, research and dissemination of knowledge related to the broad field of “human consciousness,” including recognition of the role of anomalous phenomena for understanding the human mind and acknowledgement of subjectivity as a critical ingredient in any comprehensive model of physical reality.”
