International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL)

Our mission is to further the establishment of a Science of the Subjective.

We function as a consortium of colleagues from several countries and diverse professional fields, who meet regularly to explore shared interest in consciousness-related phenomena. ICRL is an international, interdisciplinary, and inter-generational consortium of some 75 members, most of whom have been associated with the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory as interns or resea

We are in the middle of a magical week at the IAC - International Academy of Consciousness. In the midst of out of body experiences, last night we watched an amazing presentation on a woman in Brazil who does object manifestation. This morning I found that a portion of my belt had magically and "impossibly" escaped a screw, but without any damage to the surrounding leather.

The conclusion: If you think you know what is possible in this world, think again.

Share Your Light 27/03/2024

Don't forget to join us this Saturday for ICRL's next SYL session at 11:00 am (east coast time). Reflect on some positives, indulge in some gratitude, and - because let's face it, we know what kind of people we are - engage in some discussion about the nature of consciousness and reality.

Share Your Light All too often we find ourselves forgetting to take time to appreciate what is good in our lives, yet a focus on gratitude has repeatedly been demonstrated to offer immense benefits to health and success. Join ICRL for a few minutes each week to reflect on the positive, exciting, and uplifting things...

Share Your Light 29/02/2024

Don't forget that ICRL holds a Share Your Light session every Saturday at 11:00 am EST (GMT-5), a moment to relax and reflect on the good things that have happened in the past week. After each session, we capture the essence of those experiences in an artistic expression.

Data from the Field of Consciousness during 2023 Event 28/02/2024

Here's a report from the ICRL supported Science and Consciousness event using twin REG technology to track the field. Great results!

Data from the Field of Consciousness during 2023 Event A report with scientific data using the wyrdoscope syntropy detector on how the field of consciousness responded to events during the Science and Consciousness event 2023.

Share Your Light 25/02/2024

Each Saturday at 11:00 am EST (GMT-5), ICRL invites you to take a few minutes to sit back, reflect on, and share some of the good things that have happened in the past week.

Why?

Perhaps to balance off all the negative news that flood our media channels.

Perhaps because studies have shown that cultivating a habit of gratitude has positive health impacts.

Perhaps because you like the idea of positive stories being captured in artistic ways.

Or perhaps simply because you deserve those few minutes.

When was the last time you took that moment to remember that we live in a world that is imbued with indescribable beauty?

We are part of that beauty, and the more we focus on that, the more beautiful we become.

Share Your Light 11/02/2024

This coming Saturday, ICRL is kicking off a new weekly opportunity to celebrate that which is positive and uplifting in life.

Each week we invite you to share something good that happened to you in the prior week, and to hear about those things that have brought happiness to others. Beyond this we will, each week, be capturing these stories in an enduring and growing body of artwork.

This event is free and will last an hour. Please join us by registering here for connection details:

"Conceiving of a Timeless Reality", with Jeff Dunne

There is an increasing body of evidence suggesting that time is not the absolute we are generally led to believe, but rather a cognitive convention. This idea challenges us to think differently, and even adapt the very language we use to describe our experiences. Yet it also offers a powerful, intuitive explanation for many puzzling anomalies, and can grant insights into the nature of synchronicities, precognition, non-local phenomena, and our relationship to the so-called objective universe.

In this Meetup, Dr. Dunne will share a model for thinking about reality informed by decades of consciousness research and insights from the study of syntropy/teleology.

Friends,

This month's ICRL Meetup is going to be in an unusual time slot - Thursday, December 14th (instead of a Saturday) and at 4:00 pm EST (instead of our usual 1:00 pm).

Our speaker will be Dr. Alex Gomez-Marin giving a presentation entitled, "The Consciousness of Neuroscience". The abstract is below, and you can join us this coming Thursday using this link:

https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85638429291?pwd=YWlKdEp0L3BWRTFwcGl6Zit5MGIzQT09

Abstract:

The scientific study of consciousness began to cease being taboo only thirty years ago. Today, it is a field of study de facto and de jure, even in orthodox neuroscience. However, it is a young science; some even describe it as a proto-science. We continue to try to untangle “Galileo’s knot,” whom, four hundred years ago, programmatically declared the separation between objective reality (shape, position, velocity, etc.) and subjective reality (flavours, tastes, pains, etc.), giving ontological and methodological priority to the former and indefinitely postponing a science of consciousness. Furthermore, the current paradigm in research on human experience ignores, disdains, ridicules, and even censors what I call “the edges of consciousness,” which include all kinds of everyday exceptional experiences and anomalous cognitive processes. They are “edges” in a double sense, as they are “marginalized” (with all sorts of derogatory prefixes like “pseudo,” “super,” “extra,” and “anti”) while also being the true “frontier” of knowledge. I propose, therefore, that a new science of consciousness is possible, as long as, as Nobel Laureate in Physics Richard Feynman said, we are willing to refute ourselves as quickly as possible, transcending doubt and belief; only then will we truly progress. The study of the human mind holds surprises similar to those that revolutionized our understanding of matter-energy and space-time just a century ago, which we have not yet fully integrated into the citadel of academia or our daily lives. Current neuroscience has the same responsibility as early 20th-century quantum physics. Science is a journey into the unknown, or it is not science.

Bio:

Dr. Gomez-Marin is a Spanish physicist turned neuroscientist. He holds a PhD in theoretical physics and a Masters in biophysics from the University of Barcelona. He was a postdoctoral investigator at the EMBL-CRG Centre for Genomic Regulation and a research fellow at the Champalimaud Center for the Unknown in Lisbon. His research spans from the origins of the arrow of time to the neurobiology of action-perception in flies, worms, mice, humans and robots. Since 2016 he is the head of the Behavior of Organisms Laboratory at the Instituto de Neurociencias in Alicante, where he is an Associate Professor of the Spanish Research Council. Combining high-resolution quantitative experiments, computational neuro-ethology and theoretical biology, his current research concentrates on the edges of human consciousness in the real world. In 2023 he was awarded the Linda G. O’Bryant Noetic Sciences Research Prize. Alex is also the director of the Pari Center in Italy.
