#6 Remote Viewing and the Reality of Psychic Phenomena

Listen on iTunes here

Are psychic phenomena real? In today's episode of Waking Cosmos, Adrian talks to Garret Moddel, a physicist at the university of Colorado who has carried out extensive scientific experiments exploring ESP, also known as “psi” phenomena. 

Garret has conducted experiments exploring phenomena ranging from telepathy, to precognition, and mind-matter interaction. He even recounts how he and a number of students used remote viewing to successfully predict the stock market. 

In addition to the evidence of psychic abilities, Garret shares his thoughts on the Global Consciousness Project - a global mind-matter experiment believed by some to measure collective shifts in attention in the global human population. 

Of particular interest to Garret is the mysterious role of scientists' expectations and beliefs in the outcomes of their experiments. We hope you enjoy today's episode.

#4 Can Intelligence Transform the Universe?

Listen on iTunes here

What can intelligence bring about in the universe?  Can intelligence counter entropy? Is it possible that intelligence actually plays a role in the universe's existence? 

Adrian Nelson and Matthew Segall explore these and other questions in today's episode of the Waking Cosmos podcast (Listen below). These questions fascinate us, and yet at the same time, it seems virtually impossible to imagine how intelligence will transform life on this planet over the next 20 years, let alone to predict what intelligence might eventually bring about on the cosmic stage, -especially when we consider that intelligence, in some form, could conceivably continue evolving over thousands or even millions of years. We'd love to know your intuitions about these questions, so please join in the discussion in the YouTube comments section.

#3 Can We Simulate Consciousness?

Listen on iTunes here

The rise of computers has introduced new ways of thinking about reality. Among these is the possibility that the universe itself is generated through computation. 

In today's episode of Waking Cosmos, I explore the challenges of simulating conscious minds, and the possibility that we exist in a simulated universe. And if we do live in a simulation, what might be the ultimate intentions of its architects?
