Chris H. Hardy, PhD, is a psychological anthropologist with a specialty in systems theory. She is author of Cosmic DNA at the Origin – A Hyperdimension Before the Big Bang: The Infinite Spiral Staircase Theory, and also The Sacred Network and Networks of Meaning. She also has worked as a parapsychological researcher at the Psychophysical Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey.
In this 2015 video, she describes how her quest to understand the nature of ultimate reality led her to pursue a career as a researcher and scholar following her explorations as a spiritual sadhu. In endeavoring to explain the phenomena she encountered, she developed “semantic field theory”. Semantic fields are expressions of consciousness, in that they embody meaning. She claims that they exist at every level of reality and are consistent with the philosophy of panpsychism. She maintains that the ritual activity of people, over generations, in temples and spiritual centers tends to embed those locations with powerful semantic fields. These fields also help to explain how telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis operate.
