In July 2019, the Institute of Noetic Sciences launched a research program that seeks to discover how consciousness affects the physical world. This article written by Helane Wahbeh discusses the methodology that will be used by the research, as well as the technologies that will be developed for the study. A team of neuroscientists, molecular biologists, physicists, and computer engineers will be tapped to explore the question of consciousness and material reality.
