The annual virtual dreams conference on dreams and psi is taking early registrations before August 31, promising a discount. This “virtual feast” of papers, artwork and forum discussions is a two week event hosted by the International Association for the Study of Dreams.
From the horse’s mouth:
Throughout recent history, many famous artists, scientists, politicians and others have recorded dreams which led them to life-changing discoveries and creative work. This list includes (but is not limited to): Mark Twain, Buckminster Fuller, Albert Einstein, Mary Shelly, Alice Walker, Isabel Allende, Sting, John Lennon and Carl Jung. Most of these dreams contained an element of psi: telepathy, precognition, psychopompic dreaming.
This year’s PsiberDreaming Conference will present papers and workshops, special events and discussions focusing on how some of these creative dreams might have come about–and how any of us might use dreaming for creative endeavors.
Creativity, science and dreams… that’s what I”m talking about.
Mark A. Schroll says
For this years PsiberDreaming Conference I will post the paper “Further Clarification of Ullman’s New Abode: Recognizing the Limitations of the Holographic Paradigm.” Those of you that attended my IASD Sonoma symposium “Bohm’s Holistic Physics, Sacred Sites, Spiritual Emergence and Ecopsychology’s Vision” will have more background to understand my recent work. Also, for anyone interested in my 2006 PsiberDreaming papers on the work of Stanley Krippner and Monte Ullman, I can send these via email. My follow-up to this paper will probably be at the IASD Montreal meeting, and will include a conceptual model that I’ve been working on since 1988. Currently I have more than 200 pages written on this and after publishing two more journal articles I will be putting this out as a book. Possible title is “The Philosohical Legacy of David Bohm: Reconciling the Divorce Between Matter and Spirit.” This will also speak to the need to address the limitations of Positivism and our current scientific paradigm that was discussed at the CIIS meeting that Ryan has aptly summarized.
Mark, as always, I bow down to your profileration of words.
