Steve, Cassi, and Josh talk about the IONS internship program and its attraction to a new generation of scientists. They also discuss how the work that the interns are doing is helping to create and maintain our online resources on meditation, subtle energies, compassionate intention, and spontaneous remission from life-threatening illnesses.
In this session from the Summer of Peace 2012 Telesummit's Science of Peace Week, host Cassandra Vieten talk with guest Paul J. Zak: Scientist, Author, and Founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University.
This short video debuted at IONS' 40th anniversary celebration at EarthRise Center on January 20th, 2013. This was the opening day of our new Environmental Education Center, which showcases plans to develop EarthRise into one of the most environmentally sustainable retreat, education, and research centers in the world.
This is part one of a two-part presentation from the January 2013 Electric Universe Conference in Albuquerque, NM, featuring IONS Senior Scientist Dean Radin, PhD, discussing aspects of the US government's "Stargate" program related to psychic spying, as well as IONS experiments using optical interferometers to study mind-matter interaction particles of light—photons.

Distant healing intention (DHI) is one of the most common complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) healing modalities, but clinical trials to date have provided ambivalent support for its efﬁcacy. To examine 2 potential variables – expectation and belief – we explored the effects of DHI on objective and psychosocial measures associated with surgical wounds in 72 women undergoing plastic surgery.

A double-slit optical system was used to test the possible role of consciousness in the collapse of the quantum wavefunction. Each test session consisted of 40 counterbalanced attention-toward and attention-away epochs, and data was contributed by 137 people in six experiments, involving a total of 250 test sessions. The results appear to be consistent with a consciousness-related interpretation of the quantum measurement problem.
