The Global Consciousness Project

What is the nature of Global Consciousness?

Colleagues, Individuals and Groups

Many groups and individuals around the world are working on projects with common aims to those of the GCP, and we have more specific ties with a smaller number of groups, directly sharing ideas and technologies. With two others, we have developed a description of our cooperative intentions:

The Global Consciousness Project (GCP), the Global Coherence Initiative (GCI) and the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) share a common purpose: to extend empirical and theoretical understandings of the subtle interconnections among mind, emotions, body, and environment. This is a multidisciplinary effort at the edges of what is known. By working together and pooling insights and resources we aim to facilitate progress in many aspects of our individual research programs, as well as in direct collaborations. Beyond the basic scientific work, we are dedicated to translating our findings into applications that enhance personal and social wellbeing, which in turn may lead to enhanced personal and global coherence, and ultimately to facilitating conscious evolution.

Cooperation and collaboration with others doing related work is valuable in many ways, not least as a real manifestation of the symbolic vision we share.

In principle and in practice, people and institutions who support the GCP with donations and grants are essential colleagues.

We also count among our colleagues a long and growing list of people and organizations with similar purposes. Some of these are found among the Links and Gathering pages.
