The Institute of Noetic Sciences was Highly Commended in the 2015 Millenium Awards. The award citation read:
I probably can't do better than to quote from the website of the Institute:
"Noetic" comes from the Greek word nous, which means "intuitive mind" or "inner knowing." IONS™ conducts, sponsors, and collaborates on leading-edge research into the potentials and powers of consciousness, exploring phenomena that do not necessarily fit conventional scientific models while maintaining a commitment to scientific rigor.
Some would say that applying "scientific rigor" to something which science does not recognise could be a thankless task, but how else are we to learn about the power of the mind to create and interpret reality? Or as they say of their vision:
The Institute of Noetic Sciences serves an emerging movement of globally conscious citizens dedicated to manifesting our highest capacities. We believe that consciousness is essential to a paradigm shift that will lead to a more sustainable world. We encourage open-minded explorations of consciousness through the meeting of science and spirit.
I like "paradigm shift" It sounds so sciency. I am also pleased that a search for the word "quantum" on the site brings up many page links. The study guide to the amazingly informative film "What tHe βLεεP Dθ ωΣ (k)πow!?" is just one of them. And did you know that "Quantum theory reveals what many indigenous cultures have always known: Everything exists in dynamic flux-everything vibrates-and everything is in relation to everything else"?
This is an amazing resource. Use it wisely.
