We hypothesize that everything is interconnected, and that embodying that awareness reveals information and energy not limited by space and time, which can create breakthroughs in transformation, innovation, and well-being.
Over the last two years, the IONS team of world-renowned scientists have published over 30 peer-reviewed works on interconnnectedness and accessing information from beyond space and time. Our efforts are focused on research that addresses these three overarching questions:
How are we interconnected?
