“I read too much science fiction as a kid,” Dean Radin tells Julie Motz of KWMR FM Radio’s Hot Tech, Cool Science when asked how he got involved in noetic sciences. “It is comparable to someone reading Harry Potter books today. I was most curious about what is possible in order for magic to exist.”
IONS scientists Dean Radin and Cassandra Vieten joined host Julie Motz of KWMR FM Radio’s Hot Tech Cool Science last Thursday, May 23rd, to talk about the IONS conference, the status of psychic phenomena, and what conditions are necessary for people to have transformational experiences.
Finding solutions for the world requires a shift in consciousness and that shift can only take place when we feel connected with others.Cassandra Vieten, IONS President and Senior Scientist
When asked “What about the IONS conference are you most excited about?” Vieten replied, “This is my 12th IONS conference and I am more excited about this one than any of the others because we are in such an important time in history. There are significant threats to our liberties with a backward movement in women’s rights and other areas, and at the same time we have a profoundly positive forward motion with young people wanting to live carbon neutral. There is a tension between the naysayers who declare things in the world won’t change and the people who are exploring and enacting change. This conference helps us blow on the smoldering coals of his type of conversation. Finding solutions for the world requires a shift in consciousness and that shift can only take place when we feel connected with others.”
