Stephan A. Schwartz is a Distinguished Consulting Faculty of Saybrook University. He is the columnist for the journal Explore, and editor of the daily web publication Schwartzreport.net in both of which he covers trends that are affecting the future. His other academic and research appointments include: Senior Fellow for Brain, Mind and Healing of the Samueli Institute; founder and Research Director of the Mobius laboratory.

Using Remote Viewing he discovered Cleopatra’s Palace, Marc Antony’s Timonium, ruins of the Lighthouse of Pharos, and sunken ships along the California coast, and in the Bahamas. He is the author of more than 130 technical reports and papers. He has written The Secret Vaults of Time, The Alexandria Project, Mind Rover, Opening to the Infinite, and The 8 Laws of Change.
Here he describes the linkages between focused conscious intention and social change. He notes that the founders of quantum theory in physics — such as Max Planck, Albert Einstein, and Erwin Schrödinger — all accepted the primacy of consciousness. He suggests that parapsychological experiments that focus on individual, small-scale performance — such as experiments on healing — can be applied at the large-scale social level. He concludes by noting that Mohandas Gandhi utilized these principles in freeing India from British rule.
