B2 Quantum Mind-Matter Interaction—Daryl Bem, PhD; Dean Radin, PhD; and Jonathan Schooler, PhD

The “quantum measurement problem” refers to the well-accepted fact that an observed quantum object behaves differently than an unobserved quantum object. There are various interpretations of “observed” in this context, but one strong possibility is that it involves conscious awareness. Hundreds of experiments conducted over the past half-century have tested whether this idea is correct. The cumulative evidence suggests that it is.
