Podcast: World's Largest Consciousness Research Project - Adam Currydiscusses Collective Consciousness App

In a previous blog post, we mused about the future applications of consciousness research in "every day life." In this edition, we introduce you to a new platform that could yield many such applications.  It is quite literally "an app" for mobile devices and what could be described as largest consciousness research project ever, placing the experience of decades of mind-matter interaction research at Princeton University in your pocket. Adam Curry of Collective Consciousness App invites you to support this citizen science project enabled by a mobile device app that will be freely available.  You can help make it a reality by supporting the crowd-funding campaign that has 45 days left as of the date of publication.

IAC Consciousness Radio's latest podcast is a conversation with Adam Curry, the inventor-entrepreneur-consciousness scholar who conceived the app.  The compelling citizen science project is currently being crowd-funded and counts with the support of renown creatives, technologists and researchers.  

The project is capturing the imagination of consciousness studies aficionados, mindfulness practitioners and scientists from various organizations.  Collective Consciousness App aims to provide a powerful, freely-available tool that is based on the research of the famed Princeton PEAR Lab and Global Consciousness Project

Adam Curry began his consciousness scholarship in earnest when he became involved with the PEAR lab in 2002.  He is the Program Chair of the upcoming Meeting of the Society for Scientific Exploration in San Francisco, June 5 - 7, 2014.

During high school, his observance of a gravity-related anomaly led to his invention of a novel technique and device for short-term earthquake forecasting. He spent several years traveling, researching, and organizing a global forecasting network. He was lauded by the US Congress, the Office of Naval Research, and was the 2002 recipient of the CERES connection prize, for which the MIT Lincoln Laboratory named an asteroid after him.
