Quantum Physics and Psychology

I recently attended a meeting of the International Consciousness Research Laboratory in Princeton, NJ. I have been a member of the ICRL, which is an offshoot of the Princeton University Engineering Anomalies Research Lab, for a number of years since graduating from Princeton University myself. On Saturday, we had a great conversation surrounding the topic of the ‘Quirks of the Quantum Mind’.

My interest in psychology led me to pose the question: How do the quantum findings affect us? What are the applicable psychological implications that we can take away for our use?

This led facilitator Brenda Dunne to discuss the recent passing of the head of the group, Bob Jahn. Quantum mechanically speaking, his energy had been focused in his body, and now he was free wave function. Brenda felt this expansion of Bob’s energy and the pervasive presence of his current state. She felt psychologically comforted by the awareness of his continued energy presence.

Brenda went on to speak about how in the process of their research together she learned a lot about the complimentarity of particles and personalities. Bob had been a physicists running Princeton’s engineering anomalies lab, and had hired Brenda, a psychologist with training in the humanities, to add a balancing perspective. Over the next 40 years they would go on to publish a plethora of research on the effect of consciousness on machines, non local consciousness (or remote viewing) and more.

Next we talked about resonance between particles as a metaphor for love between people. Two atoms come together and share their electrons bringing them to a higher energy state. People can come together in harmony and  increase the energy of themselves as well!

Finally we discussed how tapping into the subconscious mind in meditative states can allow us to access a more knowing, healing, and powerful state of mind.
