From the Publisher
-- Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words and The Power of Premonitions
"Princeton University's PEAR Lab, definitively documented in Jahn and Dunne's masterful book, has consistently challenged one of science's most stubbornly held assumptions--that objective reality is completely independent of consciousness. Their experimental evidence is persuasive, tantalizing, and ultimately staggering in its implications. Orthodox thinkers will protest, but the scientific revolution is charging ahead and this book blazes the trail."
-- Dean Radin, author of The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds
"This book tells the profound and compelling story of one of the most essential scientific investigations since Einstein's reformulation of space and time. Jahn's and Dunne's bold and heretical research into the inextricable connection between mind and matter demolishes many of our most dearly held scientific premises, redefines what it means to be human, and challenges us to live by an entirely new set of rules."
-- Lynne McTaggart, author of The Field, The Intention Experiment, and The Bond
About the Author

CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE SOURCE OF REALITY--THE PEAR ODYSSEY is hard, cold objective science dramatically broadened in complementary relationship with its living, breathing other half, "science of the subjective." THIS is breakthrough science--valiant intercession in that mysterious, metaphorical zone between matter and meaning, analytical precision and intuitive resonance, science and spirit, where science and art meet, where time and distance are irrelevant, where healing happens anomalously, and where life continues after this one.
Jahn's and Dunne's Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program, PEAR, at Princeton University, steadfastly stood 30 years against the grain of "status quo science." This book includes an overview of the famous and infamous lab, of the mind/machine experiments, the remote viewing studies, and of the work expanding now through ICRL, Psyleron, and other offshoots and projects. Highlights of the book are the theoretical models proposed in Section IV, which are beyond breathtaking, elevating Jahn and Dunne from heretical pioneer to heroic national treasure status.
CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE SOURCE OF REALITY infiltrates and inspires mind, heart and soul.Read more ›
They were relentless in their effort and determination, even when faced with constantly changing political winds; they were supremely open to that uncertainty which is a true scientist's deepest drive; and, in time, they managed to map internal features of mind-matter phenomena (such as co-operator effects) which represent much-needed empirical landmarks. Their generous spirit, forever seeking to include, to nurture, to collaborate, seems almost utopian by today's standards of research.
While there are a number of other outstanding titles in print which cover the full range and implications of these studies (notably Radin's Entangled Minds and The Conscious Universe) Jahn and Dunne's book includes unique material for anyone interested in the future of psi research: that is, an intimate look at how these two pioneers conceived and implemented every step of what remains the only long-term, comprehensive academic psi research program in the US. For that achievement alone this volume (together with other ICRL publications) is worth keeping as a critical reference.
