Dr. Courtney Brown, Director
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 has never received any financial compensation
for his work at the Institute.
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.
Dr. Brown enjoys traveling with his family, often throughout Africa.
He is a pilot, and he has spent many hours flying around the southeastern
United States while documenting on film and video human destruction of
the environment. He enjoys singing, playing the drums, computer programming,
and most importantly, family life. He practices the TM-Sidhi meditation
program regularly, twice a day.
