Nice talk from Cassandra Vieten, CEO and President of the Institute for Noetic Sciences, on the need for fearlessness in scientists at the "frontier of science," the "investigation of consciousness." This talk was given at the Science and Nonduality Conference.

The frontier of science is the investigation of consciousness--in particular, the nonlocal,
causal, and nondual aspects of consciousness. This cutting edge of science, far from being fringe, is investigating the most centrally important questions of our time. And yet, these controversial topics are often challenged as being "unscientific" by the mainstream scientific community. In fact, there are no unscientific topics. The scientific endeavor should not be held back by limitations in our imagination and ingenuity. A scientist, and CEO and President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Cassandra Vieten will discuss the frontiers of scientific investigation of nonduality and consciousness.
