Galileo Comission adviser Bernard Carr, PhD, is emeritus professor of mathematics and astronomy at Queen Mary College, University of London. He is coauthor of the book Quantum Black Holes and he is also editor of the anthology Universe or Multiverse? He is a past-president of the Society for Psychical Research and is also currently president of the Scientific and Medical Network.

Bernard Carr explains how he has endeavored to maintain professional interests in psychical research, spirituality, physics, and cosmology. He notes that his own interest in the paranormal was stimulated by a series of out-of-body experiences. He suggests that a physical understanding of consciousness will most likely entail a theory incorporating higher dimensions of space. He also describes his work on the anthropic cosmological principle as well as primordial black holes.
