Expanding the Scope of Science

How it all started…

David Lorimer introduces the Galileo Commission Report

GALILEO COMMISSION REMIT

The world today is dominated by science and by its underlying assumptions, which are seldom explicitly articulated. The Galileo Commission’s remit is to open public discourse and to find ways to expand science so that it can accommodate and explore important human experiences and questions that science, in its present form, is unable to integrate.

Following widespread consultation with 90 advisers representing 30 universities worldwide, we have published the Galileo Commission Report, written by Prof  Dr Harald Walach and entitled Beyond a Materialist Worldview – Towards an Expanded Science.  The report has been widely endorsed as a groundbreaking document and we encourage you to read it for yourself and spread the word among your professional network.  Summaries  of the argument are available in a number of languages.

An End to Upside Down Thinking – Mark Gober

An End to Upside Down Thinking

What drives all of your life’s priorities, values, and decisions? In the sequel to An End to Upside Down Thinking, Mark Gober builds a science-based worldview from which we can create a compass for living. In stark contrast to his prior belief system, Gober explains why life is actually full of meaning. From this perspective, he lays out how we might approach life accordingly, along with the well-traveled “awakening” path that we’re likely to encounter. At this pivotal juncture in human history, approaching life in a new way is the antidote that our civilization desperately needs.

Rupert Sheldrake – Questions for Materialists: Part 1

Galileo Commission adviser Rupert Sheldrake asks: Is the mechanistic worldview a testable scientific theory, or a metaphor? If it is a metaphor, why is the machine metaphor better in every respect than the organism metaphor?

Visualizing Information as a Dynamic Entity Roadmap of Deep Science, AI and Humanity – Mukho, A.K.

Visualization of information as an autonomous intentional potent causal entity, which has a dynamically changing geometry across the depth of nature remains a valuable leading guide for extending the vertical depth of science. Following this thread of information in its various forms, it is possible to travel imaginatively across the ladder of cognition from physical signal to the world of sublime wisdom and back from the wisdom to signal world.

Spontaneous Spiritual Awakenings: Phenomenology, Altered States, Individual Differences, and Well-Being – Jessica Corneille

Spontaneous Spiritual Awakenings (SSAs) are subjective experiences characterised by a sudden sense of direct contact, union, or complete nondual merging (experience of oneness) with a perceived ultimate reality, the universe, “God,” or the divine. These profound transformative experiences have scarcely been researched, despite extensive anecdotal evidence suggesting their potential to catalyse drastic, long-term, and often positive shifts in perception, world-view, and well-being. The aims of this study were to investigate the phenomenological variances of these experiences, including the potential differences between SSAs and Spontaneous Kundalini Awakenings (SKAs), a subset of awakening experiences that the authors postulate may produce a higher likelihood of both physical and negative effects; to explore how these experiences compare to other altered states of consciousness (ASCs), including those mediated by certain psychedelic substances; and understand their impact on well-being.
