Brian Josephson, PhD, is a Nobel Laureate physicist who is director of the Mind Matter Unification Project at Cambridge University. His recent research has revolved around intelligent processes in nature as they relate to foundational physics. He is coeditor of the anthology, Consciousness and the Physical World. His website is: https://www.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/~bdj10/
Here he describes various lines of investigation that point toward the role of mind-like activity in the physical world. These include nonlocality, or entanglement, in physics; the collapse of the wave packet in physics; memory in water; the field of cymatics, or the response of water to acoustical excitation; language processing in computers; and the field of biosemiotics, or the biological processing of signs and symbols. He also describes his interest in parapsychology as well as the social stigma attached to such interest.
