Can the power of our thoughts influence the physical world around us? What if we could see our intentions, hopes, and fears displayed before us? Could these images allow us to connect with our deeper selves, with others, with our departed loved ones?
Windbridge Institute husband and wife research team, Mark Boccuzzi and Julie Beischel, PhD, spent a year exploring these and other questions relating to the extended nature of consciousness and the connections that exist between our minds and the physical world.
Visualizing Intention explores the development and application of their research. It also includes 12 images created from data collected while meditators focused on specific ideas. You can use these images as the focus of your own meditations.
In this video, Mark Boccuzzi presents some the ideas and data behind the creation of intentional data sets and imaging.
An interview with Mark Boccuzzi about this work on the Moonflower: Art, Design, Culture blog.
“Art also lets me push outside of the often rigid constraints of science, allowing me to explore ideas and technologies in unconventional ways.”
