Courtney Brown, Ph.D., founded The Farsight Institute as a research and educational organization in 1995. He is Director for this unique nonprofit educational organization.
Dr. Brown’s primary research interest at the Institute is in the new field of “sociophysics,” a science that integrates the areas of mathematics, social science, and physics with the study of consciousness. Some of his research bears directly on issues addressing quantum mechanics and cosmology. As a social scientist, Dr. Brown has long held a substantive and mathematical interest in nonlinear interdependencies in human affairs. His research into the realm of consciousness has added to his appreciation of the depth of humanity’s state of interdependency with all of the universe, and it has helped him to recognize the truthfulness of Donne’s maxim, “No man is an island, entire of itself.”
Dr. Brown has published a number of books on the subject of remote viewing. His recent book, Remote Viewing: The Science and Theory of Nonphysical Perception, is an in-depth scientific examination of the remote-viewing phenomenon, particularly with respect to how remote viewing is performed using procedures that are derivative of U.S. government funded research efforts. This book deeply engages issues related to the physics of psi functioning.
In addition to his commitment to advancing basic science research of the remote-viewing phenomenon, he also has a personal and separate interest (some would call it a hobby) in applying remote viewing to investigate the subjects of spirituality and extraterrestrial life. His speculative nonfiction book, Cosmic Voyage: A Scientific Discovery of Extraterrestrials Visiting Earth, describes his first investigation using remote viewing as a data gathering technique. It has been published both in hardback (Dutton) and paperback (Onyx), and in various languages. His second speculative nonfiction book on the subject of remote viewing, Cosmic Explorers: Scientific Remote Viewing, Extraterrestrials, and a Message for Mankind, continues much of the substantive content of Cosmic Voyage, but it also contains an entire text explaining the mechanics of Scientific Remote Viewing®. It was also been published in hardback (Dutton) and paperback (Signet). Both books are available as free downloads.
