Starting in the 1970s, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research lab (PEAR) spent 28 years looking into how our inner states impact the world around us. They found beyond statistical doubt that our intention alters what should otherwise be random events. This research, following the protocols of mainstream science and academia, laid the foundations for grounded research into the nature of consciousness. We are fortunate to have joining us Dr Roger Nelson, one of the original PEAR team and founder of the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), as well as Dr Jeffrey Dunne, son of Dr Brenda Dunne who co-ran the PEAR lab, and now President of ICRL, the organization set up to continue PEAR's work.

Dr. Peter Merry

Peter Merry received an M.Sc. in Human Ecology from Edinburgh University, a B.A. Combined Honours in French and German from Exeter University, and a Ph.D. from Ubiquity University.

Peter serves as Ubiquity University’s Chief Innovation Officer. He is a recognised expert in the field of evolutionary systems dynamics and Spiral Dynamics Integral in particular. His first book was published in English and Dutch (Evolutionary Leadership, 2005) and his second in 2019 (Why Work? on designing work for people and planet). His third book Leading from the Field was published at the end of November 2020. He has an MSc in Human Ecology from Edinburgh University and a PhD from Ubiquity’s Wisdom School on volution theory (see :: His personal website is :: His academic profile with papers can be found at ::

Peter teaches the Transformational Leadership, Merry Musings and Introduction to Energetics courses as well as hosting the annual Science and Consciousness event.

Dr. Jeffrey Dunne is the President and Chairman of the Board of the International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL) a charitable research organization established in the late 1990’s to build upon the foundation laid through the research carried out at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory. In addition to his role with ICRL, Jeff is a systems engineer and researcher in the fields of data science and artificial intelligence at the Johns Hopkins University, where he augments his focus on the nature of consciousness with skills in a wide range of technical disciplines, from signal processing and acoustics to data fusion and linguistics. Jeff is also an award-winning author and playwright. With his recently published novel, Nexus, he weaves together the scientific and the spiritual to introduce the principle of syntropy to readers of any age and background, showcasing the importance of finding balance at every scale—personal, societal, and global. Dr. Dunne holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, as well as M.S. and Ph.D. in Experimental Physics.

Dr. Roger Nelson

Roger Nelson, Ph.D., was Coordinator of Research at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University from 1980 to 2002, and has directed the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), since its inception in 1997.

Interests in psychology, physics, philosophy and the arts have given opportunities to collaborate with creative interdisciplinary teams at PEAR and elsewhere developing ways to study consciousness and intention. Roger's work integrates science and spirituality, including research that is directly focused on numinous communal experiences.

Building on years of laboratory experiments, Roger began using random event generator (REG) technology in the field to study effects of special states of group consciousness. This led naturally to the GCP, which is designed to register indications of a coalescing global consciousness responding to major world events such as 9/11, the beginnings of war, or New Year's Eve.

Speculative interpretations suggest that we may be looking at some form of consciousness field. Though we don't have a full explanation, this frontier research provides evidence of interconnection and interaction of our minds with the environment. It is consonant with ancient and modern ideas about a nascent greater consciousness.
