Stephan Schwartz is a Distinguished Consulting Faculty at Saybrook University, a research associate of the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory of the Laboratories for Fundamental Research, columnist for the journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing, and editor of the daily web publication Schwartz Report, in both of which he covers trends that are affecting the future. His academic and research appointments include: Senior Samueli Fellow for Brain, Mind and Healing of the Samueli Institute; founder and Research Director of the Mobius Laboratory; Director of Research of the Rhine Research Center; and Senior Fellow of The Philosophical Research Society.
For 40 years he has been studying the nature of consciousness, particularly that aspect independent of space and time. Schwartz is part of the small group that founded modern Remote Viewing research, and is the principal researcher studying the use of Remote Viewing in archaeology. Since 1978, he has been getting people to remote view the year 2050, and out of that has come a complex trend analysis. His submarine experiment, Deep Quest, using Remote Viewing helped determine that nonlocal consciousness is not an electromagnetic phenomenon. Other areas of experimental study include research into creativity, meditation, and Therapeutic Intent/Healing. He is the author of more than 100 technical reports and papers. In addition to his experimental studies he has written numerous magazine articles for Smithsonian, The Washington Post, The New York Times, as well as other magazines and newspapers. He's written five books: The Secret Vaults of Time, The Alexandria Project, Mind Rover, Opening to the Infinite and The 8 Laws of Change, to be published in October 2015. .
