Brian Josephson
Welcome to the home page of Professor Brian Josephson, director of the Mind-Matter Unification Project of the Theory of Condensed Matter Group at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge , a project concerned primarily with the attempt to understand, from the viewpoint of the theoretical physicist, what may loosely be characterised as intelligent processes in nature associated with brain function or with some other natural process. 'From the viewpoint of the theoretical physicist' means that there is a particular concern with general principles and the way these may help to reshape one's perspective on a problem. One of my guiding principles, also, has been the scientist's motto 'Take nobody's word for it' ( nullius in verba ), a corollary of which is that if scientists as a whole denounce an idea this should not necessarily be taken as proof that the said idea is absurd: rather, one should examine carefully the alleged grounds for such opinions and judge how well these stand up to detailed scrutiny.

Jessica Utts and Brian D. Josephson A slightly shortened version of this article was published in the Times Higher Education Supplement's special section on Consciousness linked to the Tucson II conference "Toward a Science of Consciousness", Apr. 5th. 1996, page (v). Those who recognise that significant discoveries in science are very often prompted by observations that do not fit expectations will find a stimulating challenge in accumulating evidence that it is possible to elicit psychic functioning in experiments with ordinary volunteers acting as subjects. Even more convincing results occur with specially selected subjects. In one type of experiment, a "target" photograph or video segment is randomly chosen out of a set of four possibilities. A "sender" attempts to transmit it mentally and a "receiver" is then asked to provide an account either verbally or in writing of what she imagines it might be. She is then shown the four possibilities, and selects the one she thinks best matches her perception. By chance alone, a correct match is expected on average one time in four, whereas the experiments typically show the considerably higher success rate of around one in three. The recent declassification of the US government's psychical research programme (experiments on "remote viewing", similar to the type just described except that it used independent judges to assess the matches rather than having the subjects judge themselves) has permitted a comparison to be made of the results of this programme with those described in the open literature. Despite the different judging procedure, similar success rates were found. In addition, many of the governmental experiments used gifted subjects. The success rate was then even higher, typically over forty percent. The few experiments in the open literature that used gifted subjects found similar success rates.

Term Paper:
Brian D. Josephson
Photo curtsies of Brian D. Josephson's webpage: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." (Albert Einstein) The words of a genius, to be considered by many, a man who embodied those intrinsic values we call genius, and to display those values at an early age. By these measures Brian D. Josephson also complies to the word, genius, one of the youngest Nobel Laureates at just 34 in 1973, when he received the honor for work done at the age of 22.
The field of superconductors for many is fictitious dream, lived out in laboratories, and chalkboards never to affect the layman. Josephson's works have proved otherwise, his theories of tunneling between two superconductors separated by a thin-insulating membrane may not be understood to the common man, but nonetheless he enjoys the fruits of Josephson's labor. Josephson's theories have nestled their way into the fabric of science. New findings regarding suppositions of Josephson's work continues today, providing a basis for the millennium's Nobel laureates, in the fields of integrated circuits, in physics, and conducting polymers, in chemistry. Josephson's work in the area of superconductors has effect us profoundly, in the advancement and improvement of not only science, but also technology on which the world runs today.
Born on Jan 4, 1940, to his parents Abraham, and Mimi Josephson, it would not be long before his effect on the world would be evident.

This page collects links related to PSI phenomena these include telepathy, psychokinesis, clairvoyance, etc. Only links ensuring the scientific approach to the field are stated. That means, I tried to protect you from a vast amount of frauds and nonsenses which one usually encounters when looking for information about PSI. The stress is put mainly to online literature on the subject. Lierature typed in bold face should convince any honest sceptic that possibility of existence of PSI phenomena must be seriously taken into account.

Consciousness and Near Death Experience
by Gerhard D Wassermann Ph.D, FIMA (formerly reader in the Theory and Philosophy of Biology, University of Newcastle upon Tyne) 184 pages 1869928628 pbk 9.99 pounds/15 dollars In 1993 I published a novel kind of theory of psychic phenomena in a book entitled Shadow Matter And Psychic Phenomena. Although I devoted a whole chapter to the issue of possible survival of the human personality after bodily death, I did not go remotely far enough. Contrary to common-sense, it seems physically quite possible that an important component of each of us survives death. It is a part of this component which during life and death carries our memories and our ability to think, feel etc. Perhaps a valuable guide to the possible machinery of death and dying might be obtained by attempts to elucidate the conceivable mechanisms of Near Death Experiences (NDEs). Various people have studied these for many years. My own theorising begins with a critical reappraisal of some of these ideas on NDEs. In the course of the argument I hope to persuade the reader of the advantages of a theory based in the new physics of shadow matter. About the author:: Gerhard D. Wassermann, Doctor of Science, Fellow of the Institute of Biology, Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, Fellow of the Institute of Electrical Engineers, is a Former Reader in the Theory and Philosophy of Biology at University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Since 1901 the Nobel Prize is annually awarded for achievements in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and peace. On December 10th, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death, the Nobel prize is presented to laureates during a ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden. The Army Research Office sponsored the work of many Nobel laureates over the years and their research has dramatically impacted our national defense. Listed below are ARO sponsored Nobel laureates.

Sent: Friday, December 07, 2001 5:10 PM Subject: 100 Nobel Laureates Issue Statement
Friday, December 07, 2001 From the Best Minds in the World OSLO, Norway—December 7, 2001 (OTVNewswire)At the Nobel Peace Prize Centennial Symposium here yesterday celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Nobel prize, 100 Nobel laureates have issued a brief but dire warning of the “profound dangers” facing the world. Their statement predicts that our security depends on immediate environmental and social reform. The following is the text of their statement:
THE STATEMENT The most profound danger to world peace in the coming years will stem not from the irrational acts of states or individuals but from the legitimate demands of the world's dispossessed. Of these poor and disenfranchised, the majority live a marginal existence in equatorial climates. Global warming, not of their making but originating with the wealthy few, will affect their fragile ecologies most. Their situation will be desperate and manifestly unjust. It cannot be expected, therefore, that in all cases they will be content to await the beneficence of the rich. If then we permit the devastating power of modern weaponry to spread through this combustible human landscape, we invite a conflagration that can engulf both rich and poor. The only hope for the future lies in co-operative international action, legitimized by democracy.
