Conference Theme: 

A Great Shift Consciousness, Healing, and Reality

We seek submissions of empirical research (preliminary studies, experiments, case or field studies, systematic reviews or meta-analyses) related to new thinking or fresh studies of:

  • Ancient technologies, human history & spirituality, cosmology, and catastrophism
  • Neural or environmental correlates of exceptional human experiences
  • UAPs (UFOs), SETI, & other interdimensional or cosmic phenomena
  • Science-related public controversies (e.g., 5G impacts, Covid-19, religion vs science, climate change, & media-institutional biases)
  • Persistence of consciousness beyond death or outside the body (e.g., NDEs, OBEs, after-death communications, or mediumship)
  • Psychology & parapsychology of mind-matter interactions, remote viewing, or general psi functioning
  • Biofield therapies, Kundalini, & the subtle body
  • New or expanded theories of consciousness that are evidence-based or empirically testable
  • The future, new physics, plasma science, & new energy technologies
  • AI, machine sentience, and other non-human intelligences
  • Beyond this short list, we welcome submissions with new empirical evidence related to anomalies or unsettled science in other areas as well.
About the theme: 
We see rapid scientific and societal changes―a “Great Shift”―all around us.  These include mRNA cancer vaccines, electric vehicles, biometrics, digital currency, and 15-minute cities.  Pertinent to the SSE, an expanding human consciousness is becoming more evident, with a burgeoning number of scientists, physicians, and engineers expressing the need for intellectual humility and sharing their exceptional human experiences and post-materialistic views, all the while openly discussing, studying and publishing on psi-type phenomena and proposing new theories for mind-matter interactions.
There is also greater public acceptance of UAPs (formerly UFOs), therapeutic use of mind-altering psychedelic substances, and parapsychology, in general.  Global Consciousness and One Mind theories, advanced by several SSE members, and previously labeled “fringe” or pseudo-science, are now part of mainstream consciousness studies.  Various topics investigated by SSE members, such as remote viewing, near-death experiences, Sasquatch sightings, and energy healing, are frequently reported on social media with hundreds of thousands of followers. The Great Shift is here… and  SSE’s worldview is now becoming more commonplace. 
If the evidence is sound, unconventional science with its exploratory studies eventually becomes mainstream, so the SSE must “shift” and turn to new areas of unconventional science each year. The 2024 SSE conference will introduce new topics to keep ourselves current in the field of anomalistic science. New areas to explore include anomalous energies at the Great Pyramid, catastrophes and planetary evolution, new technologies, and predicting the future with remote viewing.   

We will host long (40-min) and short (20-min) talks in PowerPoint lecture format, and 5-min poster presentations.  Presentation acceptance and length will be determined by the Program Committee based on evaluation of the abstracts for:

  • Scientific focus (e.g., has/can the concept be tested?)
  • Quality of scholarship and cumulative science (e.g., is the research rationale well-articulated and aligned to previous studies?)
  • Originality of the research (i.e., does the research feature new thinking, innovative methods, or advanced analyses?)
