The Trust is proud to support the work of the UK Scientific & Medical Network which recently reached a significant milestone in the publication of the Galileo Commission Report.
The report aims to open up public discourse and to find ways to expand the presuppositions of science so that science (a) is not constrained by an outdated view of the nature of reality and consciousness; and (b) is better able to accommodate and explore significant human experiences and questions that it is currently unable to accommodate for philosophical reasons.
The Galileo Commission is represented by a distinguished group of over 90 scientific advisers affiliated to more than 30 universities worldwide.

“When I read the Galileo Commission Report...I was encouraged to see that the materialist view - that consciousness is solely the product of brain activity - has been challenged in a detailed, clear and very convincing document...it makes a powerful case for consciousness as a primary element of nature rather than a product of biological processes.”
