Margins of Reality: The Role of Consciousness in the Physical World

Jahn, Robert G., & Dunne, Brenda J.

 This work provides both an overview of the parapsychological research conducted by the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Laboratory (PEAR) and an attempt to understand the role consciousness may play in the establishment of reality. Much of the material presented has already been published in the Laboratory's research reports and summarized in papers given at conferences by various members of PEAR's staff, but this is the first time an overall survey has been made of their research methodology, experimental findings, and theoretical approaches, drawing them together in a unitary approach. The first section provides the historical conceptual backgrounds of the question and draws on both physics and parapsychology. Section 2 describes the research conducted at PEAR with emphasis on human-machine interaction. The third section reports on research into precognitive remote perception. The fourth presents a theoretical approach to consciousness that would make sense of their experimental results using a quantum mechanical approach. In the last section they assess the progress made, the problems encountered, and the implications and possibilities of their research and their theoretical approach.
