Coordinated by Promega Corporation and the BTC Institute, the International Forum on Consciousness offers a lively two days of information-sharing and discussion regarding important – and often challenging – topics. Launched in 2010, the Forum has focused on exploring dimensions of consciousness.
This has involved looking into various realms, pushing the envelope at times, while remaining centered on engaging our audience and our speakers. We have been guided through consciousness topics, including creativity, near death, entheogens, intelligence in nature, business evolution and the effects of sensory inputs.
As we continue to examine the facets of consciousness, this year we explored the newest emerging technologies for looking into the phenomenon of consciousness, e.g., sleep, wakefulness, altered states, focused attention, and coma. We asked the question: How might our ability to better measure consciousness create opportunities to improve human function, resolve disease states, and keep the brain/mind healthier throughout all stages of life?
