Notes of Complexity: A Scientific Theory of Connection, Consciousness and Being

Join us on Friday, April 19, for a talk that will move from using complexity theory to weave together understandings of biology, chemistry, and physics to perspectives on how consciousness and our universe are related.

There is more to this world — and you — than meets the eye.

A scientific view of our inner experiences

Science has profoundly changed the way we view reality, but there is so much more waiting to be discovered. A more complete understanding of our world requires a more advanced set of tools and practices. IONS uses scientific exploration and personal discovery to push beyond the current limits of human knowledge.

Inspired by a profound experience of personal discovery, Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell created IONS in 1973 to explore the interplay between scientific knowledge and inner knowing.

Today, we have the world’s largest team of multidisciplinary scientists conducting research on frontier topics in consciousness and its impact in our lives.

Explore Our Experiments, Expand Your Perspective

We research outer limits and inner spaces to reveal a deeper understanding of the interconnected nature of reality and extend our capacities as humans.
