7 p.m. - SPR LECTURE - Sean O'Donnell - BRINGING PSI AND SCIENCE TOGETHER

BRINGING PSI AND SCIENCE TOGETHER:  WE ALL NOW LIVE IN SPACE-TIME - AND PSI COMPLETES THE PROOF

It has long been unclear whether the Einsteinian concept of space-time was just an effective mathematical formulation - or alternatively a real aspect of our world. The advent of the Global Positioning System (GPS) over the last forty years now proves it as a firm PHYSICAL aspect of reality. This still leaves the disturbing PSYCHOLOGICAL consequences of space-time totally unexplored.Dr O'Donnell will attempt to show how psi can readily "'complete the picture" here, affording a  new and pragmatic answer to one of the greatest problems in higher science today.

Sean has maintained and developed a lifelong interest in time - due to various temporal anomalies observed since early years.  He has been a member of the Society for Psychical Research for almost 15 years and has presented several papers at our International Annual Conference over the years.

He gained an M.Sc. in Marine Biochemistry at Galway, Ireland - and a Ph.D. in the same subject from the University of Edinburgh.  As Science Correspondent for the national "Irish Press" for 17 years, he specialised in innovation and the history of ideas. He assembled the first correlated history of Irish science in the "Famous Irish Scientists" series (Technology Ireland). As part of a lifelong interest in time and its properties, he wrote a biography of William Rowan Hamilton, pub. 1983. (Hamilton was the first to call for 'A New Science of Pure Time' back in 1833!) Dr O'Donnell conducted a 16-hr. course on "The Mystery of Time" at National University Ireland, Galway between 1988 and 2000. He has also published 2 books on apparent time anomalies: Future, Memory and Time, pub. 1997 and The Paranormal Explained, pub. 2007. His blog can be found at http://thefactsoftime.blogspot.com/
