As a scientist of human consciousness, exploring how we all can live in harmony, my passionate interest in consciousness-for-its-own-sake began with a childhood near death experience. Today, as founder/co-director of an internationally-based institute, board of trustee member and director of group-intelligence of Vetha Center, researching how every man, woman, and child is linked by our innate capacity for being collectively conscious, I've explored how the exclusivity of an egocentric “separate self” is simply a learned by-product of a fragmentary way of paying attention. My research spans all the branches of science, and intimately clarifies why we have avoided “unity consciousness” and how we can unlearn this habit. How, as millions of us learn to pay attention together, this “promises” to eliminate poverty, pollution, disease, crime and war. Through thirty years of trial and error research with hundreds of multicultural groups, I've shown how paying attention together grants us access to a shareable spirited intelligence.
