Ten applicants out of 108 have moved to phase two judging for the $100,000 prize.
NOVATO, Calif., May 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is pleased to announce the identification of 10 finalists for the Linda G. O’Bryant Noetic Sciences Research Prize. Established to recognize groundbreaking research in the field of consciousness, the inaugural prize received 108 applications from across the globe. Out of the 108, 10 applications were invited to phase two.
The finalists’ proposals cover a range of topics related to the study of consciousness, including physicalist models, consciousness and quantum mechanics, an energetic model of consciousness, and psi tests during out-of-body experiences (OBE) and near-death experiences (NDE). The panel of judges evaluated and ranked the proposals based on their scientific rigor, clarity of research questions, and feasibility of proposed methods, among other criteria.
“We are thrilled to have received such a diverse and fascinating group of proposals from around the world,” said Arnaud Delorme, IONS Scientist and judging panel member. “The prize is a driving force to clarify what consciousness actually is and how it functions at a more fundamental level. IONS looks forward to identifying and announcing the winner in the coming weeks.”
