Edgar Mitchell was the sixth moonwalker. After his return from the Apollo 14 flight to the moon in 1971, where he had a special experience on the way back, he founded an institute for scientific research into consciousness and related phenomena, IONS. Mitchell is clearly convinced of the strong connection between quantum physics and consciousness. Pay special attention to what he says on the quantum hologram in this MindShift Institute interview at 20:30.
Paul J. van Leeuwen graduated in applied physics in Delft TU in 1974. There was little attention to the significance of quantum physics for the view on reality at that time. However, much later in his life he discovered that there is an important and clear connection between quantum physics and consciousness.
What he learned between then and today resulted in a post academic course in quantum physics for non-physicists. A little bit later he decided to put the contents of that course, and more, in a book published in Dutch: Kwantumfysica, Informatie en Bewustzijn – and started a website on the subject. He translated the Dutch version of his book in English, titled: ‘Quantum Physics is NOT Weird’.
