Robert Jahn, Ph.D. and Brenda Dunne, M.S. will describe the research carried out over the past quarter century in their PEAR laboratory, housed in Princeton University's School of Engineering and Applied Science. The results of numerous carefully controlled experiments provide strong evidence that human consciousness can play a pro-active role in the establishment of physical reality.
Initially intended to address the potential vulnerability of sensitive engineering systems and processes, these findings carry much broader implications that bear on our view of ourselves, our relationship to others, and to the cosmos in which we exist.
Robert G. Jahn, Ph.D, is Professor Emeritus of Aerospace Sciences at Princeton University, and Dean Emeritus of The School of Engineering and Applied Science. He holds a B.S.E. degree in Mechanical Engineering/Physics (1951), a M.A. Degree in Physics (1953), and a Ph.D. degree in Physics (1955), all from Princeton University, and has held faculty positions at Lehigh University, Physics Department, the California Institute of Technology, and, since 1962, at Princeton. He has directed major research programs in advanced aerospace propulsion systems for over 40 years, with ongoing sponsorship by NASA, the Air Force, and various industrial firms. For the past 26 years, he has been director of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory. He is also Chairman of the Board of the International Consciousness Research Laboratories and Vice President of the Society for Scientific Exploration.
Brenda J. Dunne, M.S. holds degrees in psychology and the humanities from Mundelein College in Chicago (1976), and a M.S. in Human Development from the University of Chicago (1979). She has been manager of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory since 1979, in which capacity she supervises the full spectrum of PEAR activities and oversees research projects of visiting scholars and student interns. Since 1986 she has been a Councilor of the Society for Scientific Exploration and currently serves on its Executive Committee as Education Officer. She is also President and Treasurer of the International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL).
