"Consciousness contemplates no more profound or perplexing a question than this: what is its role in the establishment of reality." (quote from "Margins of Reality" by Dr. Robert G. Jahn and Brenda J. Dunne) For more than a quarter century, Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) has pursued this challenging question via rigorously controlled experiments in human/machine interaction and remote perception. Their research has shown that human consciousness can influence simple devices and acquire information by other than recognized sensory means. The monumental implications of this work constitute the beginnings of a "Science of the Subjective." This multi-media set is one element of an extensive archiving project that seeks to preserve the heritage and accomplishments of the PEAR laboratory. It features a lecture series given annually as part of an undergraduate course in Human/Machine Interactions at Princeton University, and also includes an introductory tour of the experimental facilities that provides the viewer with a rare opportunity to experience the spirit and substance of this unique research program.
