Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D. Physicist
Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D. (http://www.fredalanwolf.com) is a physicist, writer, and lecturer who earned his Ph.D. in theoretical physics at UCLA in 1963. His work in quantum physics and consciousness is well known through his popular and scientific writing. He is the author of eleven books.
Dr. Wolf’s fascination with the world of physics began one afternoon as a child at a local matinee, when the newsreel revealed the awesome power and might of the world’s first atomic explosion. This fascination continued, leading Wolf to study mathematics and physics. After he received his Ph.D. he began researching the field of high atmospheric particle behavior following a nuclear explosion and worked on Projection Orion-a nuclear propulsion scheme designed for deep space exploration. Wolf’s inquiring mind has delved into the relationship between human consciousness, psychology, physiology, the mystical, and the spiritual. His investigations have taken him from intimate discussions with physicist David Bohm to the magical and mysterious jungles of Peru, from master classes with Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman to the high deserts of Mexico, from a significant meeting with Werner Heisenberg to the hot coals of a fire walk.
In academia, Dr. Wolf has challenged minds at San Diego State University, the University of Paris, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the University of London, Birkbeck College, and many other institutions of higher learning. Wolf is best known for his contributions through technical papers and popular books, but he is frequently in demand as a lecturer, keynote speaker, and consultant to industry and the media.
Wolf is well known for his simplification of the new physics and is perhaps best known as the author of Taking the Quantum Leap, which, in 1982, was the recipient of the prestigious National Book Award for Science. Dr. Wolf’s books have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Chinese, Korean, Dutch, and Japanese.
Former professor of physics at San Diego State University for twelve years, Dr. Wolf lectures, researches, and teaches worldwide. Dr. Wolf has also appeared as the resident physicist on The Discovery Channel’s The Know Zone and on many radio talk shows and television shows across the United States and abroad. He is an honored member of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Collegium of Scholars and has taught courses at the Philosophical Research Society and the Holmes Institute.

DR. CANDICE PERT - Molecular Biologist
Dr. Candace Pert (web site) was a graduate student in her mid-twenties when she discovered the opiate receptor, the cellular bonding site for endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, which she calls our “underlying mechanism for bliss and bonding.” This breakthrough presaged a sea change in scientific understanding of human internal communication systems, pointing the way toward the information-based model that is now supplanting the long-dominant structuralist viewpoint.
In the years since, Candace Pert has focused her research on developing non-toxic pharmaceuticals that selectively block receptor sites for the AIDS virus. She has also pursued the “threateningly interdisciplinary” relationship between the nervous and immune systems, developing documentation of a body-wide communication system mediated by peptide molecules and their receptors, which she perceives to be the biochemical basis of emotion and the potential key to many of the most challenging diseases of our time.
Dr. Pert was awarded her Ph.D. in pharmacology, with distinction, in 1974, from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Pert conducted a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Postdoctoral Fellowship with the Department of Pharmacology at Johns Hopkins from 1974-1975. After 1975, she held a variety of research positions with the National Institutes of Health, and until 1987, served as Chief of the Section on Brain Biochemistry of the Clinical Neuroscience Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
Dr. Pert is an internationally recognized pharmacologist who has published over 250 scientific articles on peptides and their receptors and the role of these neuropeptides in the immune system. She has an international reputation in the field of neuropeptide and receptor pharmacology, and chemical neuroanatomy. She has lectured worldwide on these and other subjects, including her theories on emotions and mind-body communication. Dr. Pert holds a number of patents for modified peptides in the treatment of psoriasis, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, stroke, and head trauma. One of these, Peptide T, is currently in a Phase II trial in San Francisco for the treatment of AIDS and neuroAIDS.
Her best-selling book, Molecules of Emotion is noteworthy both as an insider’s history of the changing scientific paradigm and as one woman’s journey of growth and understanding.

STUART HAMEROFF, M.D. - Anesthesiologist - Pofessor
Stuart Hameroff M.D. (http://www.quantumconsciousness.org) is a Professor in the Departments of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. He is an attending anesthesiologist at University of Arizona Medical Center, spending 4 days per week in the surgical operating rooms. In the 1970’s and 1980’s he studied the molecular mechanisms of anesthetic gases, and computation in protein cytoskeletal structures – microtubules – that organize interiors of the brain’s neurons and other cells.
In Dr. Hameroff’s words: “In the early 1990’s the study of consciousness became increasingly popular and I was strongly influenced by Roger Penrose’s The Emperor’s New Mind (and later Shadows of the Mind, Oxford Press, 1989 and 1994). Quite famous for his work in relativity, black holes, and quantum mechanics, Roger had turned to the problem of consciousness and concluded the mind was more than complex computation. Something else was necessary, and that something, he suggested, was a particular type of quantum computation he was proposing (‘objective reduction’ – a self-collapse of the quantum wave function due to quantum gravity). He was linking consciousness to a basic process in underlying space-time geometry – reality itself!’
‘It seemed fascinating and plausible to me, but Roger didn’t have a good candidate for a biological site for his proposed process. I thought, ‘could microtubules be quantum computers?’ I wrote to him, and we soon met in his office in Oxford in September 1992. Roger was struck by the mathematical symmetry and beauty of the microtubule lattice and thought it was the optimal candidate for his proposed mechanism. Over the next few years we began to develop a model for consciousness involving Roger’s objective reduction occurring in microtubules within the brain’s neurons.”
Dr. Hameroff’s publications include 150 peer reviewed papers including three co-authored with Roger Penrose and 5 books including: Toward a Science of Consciousness I-III (MIT Press 1996, 1998, 1999), and Ultimate Computing – Biomolecular Consciousness and Nanotechnology, (Elsevier-North Holland 1987.)
