Jed Eye

Jed Eye holds a BS from Haverford College with a double major in Physics and Astronomy, and a minor in Philosophy. He holds a Master's degree from the University of California, Berkeley, where he studied Physics and Mathematics Education. He actively participated in two research groups, one led by Dr. Andy DiSessa concerning the epistemology of physics, and the other studying political and economic psychology in regards to numerical literacy, led by Dr. Michael Ranney. These professors advised his Master's thesis concerning the educational psychology of chaotic physical systems. He also worked at NASA on the Chandra x-ray telescope. In the early 2000s, he switched careers and became a teacher; since then he has taught physics, chemistry, astronomy, electrical engineering, environmental science and calculus. Jed Eye attended Starwood from '98 to '09, and was very active in the workshops and drum circles. He is especially interested in trance and consciousness studies.

Evidence of Consciousness in the Multiverse: From Sub-Atomic to Astronomical Phenomena

What is the intersection between the smallest scales, the largest scales, and consciousness? In this workshop we will explore particle physics and cosmology, contemplating the role of consciousness in the multiverse. What are dark matter, dark energy, vacuum energy, extra dimensions, and the higgs field? How do interpretations of quantum mechanics differ? How can consciousness be explained? These questions and more will be discussed in an open-minded atmosphere.

Panpsychism: the Merger of Physics and Consciousness

This workshop will involve a discussion of the intersection between quantum physics, chaos theory, and consciousness. The intellectual framework is centered around a panpsychist philosophy that solves the "hard problem" of consciousness and rejects anti-spiritual, materialist philosophies. There exists sufficient evidence to support the idea that elements of consciousness (on the quantum level) are inherent in the multiverse. Perhaps consciousness, matter and energy are one, or perhaps both actively participate and interact with each other in a bipolar dualism. In this workshop, participants will read and discuss relevant panpsychist works by Roger Penrose, Stuart Hameroff, Henry P. Stapp, and Alfred North Whitehead, showing how quantum physics and chaos theory support the philosophy of panpsychism and suggest a scientific mechanism for magick, reincarnation and telekinesis.
