The Scientific Team

THE COORDINATORS

Author Lynne McTaggart and her husband, publisher Bryan Hubbard, are:

  • hosting the experiments
  • selecting targets
  • organizing the web aspects of the experiment
  • and gathering participants from all over the globe.

Lynne McTaggart has written three significant books in the areas of quantum physics, spirituality and health.

THE SCIENTISTS

Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp

A German physicist and founder of the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany, credited with the discovery of biophoton emissions – tiny currents of light emanating from living things.

He is an Invited Member of the New York Academy of Sciences and a member of the International Consciousness ResearchLaboratory (ICRL) at Princeton University.

He has written some 150 publications on theoretical physics, biology, complementary medicine and biophotons

Dr. Gary Schwartz

Professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry and surgery at the University of Arizona, director of its Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health and also director of the National Institutes of Medicine-funded Center for Frontier Medicine in Biofield Science.

Author of more than 400 scientific papers, co-editor of 11 academic books, and author of The Afterlife Experiments and The Living Energy Universe and The G.O.D. Experiments and The Energy Healing Experiments.

Rupert Sheldrake

A biologist and author of more than 75 scientific papers and 10 books, including Seven Experiments That Could Change the World, Dogs that Know their Owners are Returning Home, and The Sense of Being Stared At.

A former Research Fellow of the Royal Society, he received his Ph D in biochemistry from Cambridge, where he took a Ph.D. in biochemistry and carried out research on the development of plants and the ageing of cells.

He is the current Perrott-Warrick Scholar and Director of the Perrott-Warrick Project.

Konstantin Korotkov

Konstantin Korotkov, the Russian physicist who invented GDV equipment, which is modern-day Kirlian photography in real time.

He has demonstrated – in real time – the power of positive intention on water and between couples.

And also the extraordinary effects of ‘power spots’ like crop circles.

Jessica Utts

Jessica Utts is a professor of Statistics at University of California at Irvine. She has held teaching professorships at University of California at Davis and a visiting professorship at Stanford University and the University of Edinburgh. Currently, she is Chair of the Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies and Vice chair of the board, National Institute of Statistical Sciences.

Dr. Utts holds a special interest in applied statistics, and has published most extensively on the use of statistics in parapsychology. 
She is widely considered to provide a dispassionate analysis of consciousness research.

Dr. Roger Nelson

Dr. Roger Nelson is a doctor of experimental cognitive psychology, with a special focus on the lesser known aspects of perception. His primary work in design and analysis is supplemented by a background in physics, statistical methods, and multi-media production. Until his retirement in 2002, he served as the coordinator of experimental work in the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) PEAR) lab, directed by Robert Jahn in the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, School of Engineering/Applied Science, Princeton University.

Dr. Nelson is now director of the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), an international, multi-laboratory collaboration (independent from the PEAR program) that maintains a network of random event generators (REGs) around the world that send data continuously over the Internet to a server in Princeton, NJ. The hypothesis being tested is that anomalous results in this data correlate with major global events, suggesting they occur as an effect of global consciousness. Dr. Nelson has examined the output of the REG machines during the Peace Intention Experiment.
