SSE Conferences are an opportunity to share and evaluate some of the most exciting and promising original research happening today. The event is highly interdisciplinary, with talks covering subjects ranging across consciousness research, progress in new energy technologies, discoveries bearing upon healing and medicine, and much more. This will be a joint conference with the International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA).
June 21-24, 2018
Prague, Czech Republic
The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for global cooperation among people with a professional interest in psychedelics. We aspire to facilitate the exchange of both scientific knowledge and real practical experience – at a global level and across a variety of disciplines, thus creating new synergies. The event will encourage innovative discussions on approaches to psychedelics and on the unequivocal position these substances still hold in the modern age – despite the lack of available evidence – in order to support their successful integration into our society. To achieve this, an in-depth review of current challenges associated with their use should be a key interest.
Speakers include Rick Doblin, PhD, William A. Richards, PhD, Amanda Feilding, Ede Frecska, MD, PhD, Prof Fiona Measham, Prof Jiří Horáček, MD, Friederike Meckel Fischer, MD, Torsten Passie, MD, PhD, Stephen Ross, MD and many more.

What happens when a lifelong skeptic dies and discovers he was wrong about life after death? Forrest J Ackerman (1916-2008), a luminary in the early history of science fiction and an ardent, lifelong atheist, promised that if he were wrong about the non-existence of an afterlife, he would attempt to send a convincing message to a few people he especially respected. Not only did Forrest leave a physical message for co-author Paul Davids that could not be explained by contemporary forensic science, but Forrest produced an extraordinary wealth of four kinds of converging evidence: [read more]
When Carl Sagan said "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" perhaps he didn't realize how often his words would be used by mainstream skeptics as a cudgel to enforce the paradigm of materialism. In this lecture, given at the Electric Universe 2015 conference, Dr Gary Schwartz presents the “Five Finger Test” (FFT) as an universal method for determining when evidence for a new idea is worth serious consideration. He applies this to some of his own research and to the Electric Universe.
Featured Open Question
For many years, nerve impulses have been understood in terms of action potentials moving along nerves, with the whole system depending on ion pumps and ion channels. Muscle contraction has been understood in terms of molecular bridges between actin and myosin molecules. But research on structured water by Gerald Pollack and his group at Washington State University has revealed that there are many surprising properties of water and gels that shed new light on both nerve impulses, muscle contraction and vesicle secretion by cells.
