How to Revolutionise the Materialist Paradigm


 

How do we catalyse a paradigm shift in consciousness studies?

 

The Scientific and Medical Network, Galileo CommissionInstitute of Noetic Sciences, Academy for the Advancement of Postmaterialist Sciences (AAPS) and Eternea present a panel discussion with leading-edge Galileo Commission advisers who are also authors from the trilogy edited by Gayle Kimball, PhD – ‘Mysteries of Reality, Mysteries of Healing, Mysteries of Knowledge Beyond Our Senses’:

Dr Eben Alexander III, Prof Bill Bengston, Dr Jude Currivan, Dr Bernardo Kastrup and Helané Wahbeh – with David Lorimer and Gayle Kimball moderating.

“I regard consciousness as fundamental, matter is derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness. There is no matter as such; it exists only by virtue of a force bringing the particle to vibration and holding it together in a minute solar system; we must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. The mind is the matrix of all matter.”

– Max Planck

 

The panel will address the following questions: 

  1. What was your personal experience of transformation from the materialist paradigm to the consciousness paradigm, including the most influential books and mentors?

  2. Imagine the paradigm has shifted. How did it happen and how is our world different?

  3. What is the strongest and most persuasive evidence that the materialist paradigm is limited and harmful?

  4. What philosophical assumptions that underpin the materialist paradigm need to be challenged?

  5. What are models of the relationship between brain and consciousness, including Quantum Mechanics, i.e. ideas of space and time. Discuss the idealist view vs. the dual aspect approach.

  6. What are the most influential effective tactics, organizations, social media, and more to inform the public? 

The Galileo Commission Report – www.galileocommission.org

The Galileo Commission Report argues for an expansion of the philosophical basis of a science of consciousness beyond the conventional physicalist worldview by widening the evidence base to examine the implications for our understanding of reality of research into significant human experiences such as veridical OBE perceptions in NDEs, children who remember previous lives, and extensive scientific studies of parapsychological phenomena. The Galileo Commission encourages scientists and academics to ‘look through the telescope’ at this evidence base that represents a fundamental challenge to the prevailing materialistic outlook.

Eben Alexander MD was an academic neurosurgeon for over 25 years, including 15 years at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital, and Harvard Medical School in Boston. A pioneering scientist and modern thought leader in the emerging science that acknowledges the primacy of consciousness in the universe, he is the author of the New York Times #1 bestseller ‘Proof of Heaven’, ‘The Map of Heaven’ and ‘Living in a Mindful Universe’.

Bill Bengston PhD is a professor of statistics and research methods at St. Joseph’s College in New York, and the President of the Society for Scientific Exploration, an international group of scientists who study anomalies. Bill’s research has produced the first successful full cures of transplanted mammary cancer and methylcholanthrene induced sarcomas in mice by energy healing techniques that he helped to develop. He has also investigated assorted correlates to healing such as EEG and fMRI entrainment, and geomagnetic micropulsation anomalies in healing space. His current work involves the attempt to reverse engineer healing and reproduce healing without the healer. Visit Bill’s website here: https://bengstonresearch.com.

 

Jude Currivan PhD is a cosmologist, planetary healer, author, most recently of ‘The Cosmic Hologram’, previously one of the most senior business women in the UK and co-founder of WholeWorld-View. She integrates leading edge science, consciousness research and universal wisdom teachings into a wholistic world-view, underpinning her work to serve transformational and emergent resolutions to our collective planetary issues.

Bernardo Kastrup PhD is the executive director of Essentia Foundation. His work has been leading the modern renaissance of metaphysical idealism, the notion that reality is essentially mental. He has a PhD in philosophy and another PhD in computer engineering. For more information, freely downloadable papers, videos, etc., please visit www.bernardokastrup.com.
