Here are links to the listings for last week and this week:

I asked David if it was possible to get email notifications of his posts, and he has now added a "follow" button so that people can do that.

This mentions another organisation promoting research into "themes bridging science, spirituality and consciousness", called the Scientific and Medical Network (SMN). Its website is here:
https://explore.scimednet.org/

It has an online journal called "Paradigm Explorer":
https://explore.scimednet.org/index.php/...r-journal/

And it has also created something called the "Galileo Commission", which is launching a report it has produced this Wednesday:
https://www.galileocommission.org/

What with the Campaign for Open Science and the Academy for the Advancement of Postmaterialistic Sciences, there seems to be no shortage of umbrella organisations in the field.

Before I left the UK I was a member of the Scientific and Medical Network for several years. The organisation was formed, as the name suggests, to connect people working in science and medicine who were open-minded enough to look beyond the constraints of the current materialist paradigm. By the time I joined, members of the general public were welcome but the majority of the organisers and conference speakers were from those professional disciplines. I met Peter Fenwick and his wife several times, once sharing a dinner table with them after a conference - a lovely, interesting and sincere couple. Also met Sheldrake there but wasn't able to get much of a conversation with him as he was much in demand.
I do not make any clear distinction between mind and God. God is what mind becomes when it has passed beyond the scale of our comprehension.

Thanks for that information. I must admit I'd never heard of this Network.

I don't know whether launching it at Halloween is a deliberate attempt to garner publicity, but it doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

I am tempted to go along to the launch, though at £10 for a two-hour academic presentation they're not going out of their way to attract a big audience.
