Location: Discovery Room
Have you thought of someone just before they called? Or experienced recurring patterns that seemed like the Universe is trying to tell you something? These meaningful coincidences are called synchronicities, and they happen to us all. Explanations range from the skeptical (“it’s all just coincidence”) to the religious (“it’s God’s plan unfolding”). However, recent investigations suggest that our own consciousness might be behind the synchronicity phenomena.
Adam will discuss early-stage synchronicity research, including his adventures attempting to build a “synchronicity machine” using sensitive laboratory equipment with his friends, and the profound (and slightly spooky) experiences of several hundred beta testers.
