PROJECT MIND FOUNDATION

P R O S P E C T U S


for science to provide such abundance, health,well-being and hope

that greed, illusion, suffering and despair will be eliminated


Given the emergence of the corona virus, which has turned the world upside down, it is critical that this project become realized

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Project Mind Foundation (Keren Mivtsa Mochin), was created to introduce a new approach to sustaining humanity and improving environmental quality through the 21st century. It submits that science and technology can be greatly accelerated and made more responsible by means of a new holism through the execution of the project named "Project Mind." To accomplish this, the project will foster a new creative mechanism called "Accelerated Thought."

PMF identifies the source of humankind's troubles in our ignorance of the world around us and, more specifically, in the obscure and highly complex nature of matter that is so highly resistant to investigation. Our foundation is committed to constructing a uniquely nurturing environment for dedicated scientists who, through unprecedentedly deep and intense creative contemplation (Accelerated Thought), will penetrate this obscurity and envision innovations which will provide holistic solutions to the problems troubling humanity as a whole. Project Mind is thus planned as a project based on subtle new understandings of the creative process.

The cost for the construction and operation of the Project Mind facility, for the first three years, is estimated at $30 million. It will house up to 36 scientists at any given moment along with a complement of staff concerned with their physical, psychological and spiritual welfare.

PMF has founding associates from varied fields and backgrounds committed to the establishment and operational success of this project.

ORGANIZATION

The Project Mind Foundation was founded in 1993.
It was incorporated in Jerusalem, December 11, 1995: #58-027-560-0

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The Project Mind Foundation introduces a new approach to sustaining humanity and creating environmental quality through the 21st century. It foresees the eventual precipitation of a new model for science in which the overwhelming importance now attributed to the mechanisms for validating hypotheses (i.e., instrumentation and methodology) will be transferred to the function of creative vision which, when sufficiently holistic, carries largely within it the means for its own validation.

STATEMENT of NEED

Owing to materialist philosophies that are steadily replacing the traditional outlooks that dominated former ages, earth's resources are rapidly being depleted and our environment is being compromised. Well over 95% of all scientific discovery and invention has occurred in our lifetime and that percentage increases with each passing day as discovery accelerates. The problem is that it is easier to make use of technology to abuse and destroy (e.g., environmental damage, terrorism, run-away viruses, etc.) than to build. Thus in spite of many benefits, scientific discoveries increasingly have a net destabilizing effect on the world so that we now find ourselves facing escalating global crises.

What is needed is an encompassing and integrated "Holistic Science" fueled by enhanced creativity rather than the fragmented, largely mechanical and polluting science that now prevails. The results to be expected are authentic environmental quality, general well-being and superior health care and increasing longevity generating a wave of global hope to neutralize widespread despair and the multitude of negative consequences that tend to stem from despair.

Methods and instrumentation for the validation of hypotheses aside, science is, fundamentally, an exercise in vision. Scientific vision is a function of our inborn potential for visualization akin to "Virtual Reality" connecting us, through our body-mind's "cyberspace" with knowledge that is as yet, unmanifest. It is an enterprise that demands the very best of us, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.

Project Mind calls for a degree of creative intensity and engagement with matter never before contemplated. It is best characterized by the ancient formula, "... with all your heart and with all your soul ... ," that implies total commitment to one's research at the expense of all else - devotion reminiscent of certain modalities of isolation and retreat. This effort (which we call Accelerated Thought) is evoked, somewhat, in the literature describing the integral scientific visions of Tesla, McClintock and others.

FRAMEWORK

Project Mind is planned as an empirical project requiring a custom-designed facility for its highly specific function. Our long-term (5 years) objective is to construct a specially designed building to house Project Mind. It will be a dedicated facility designed specifically for PM's unique function. Its cost for construction and operation for the three first, determining years is conservatively estimated at $30 Million. It will house up to three dozen candidates for Accelerated Thought at any given moment along with a complement of staff concerned with their physical, psychological and spiritual welfare. Staff will be especially prepared for the special states that certain candidates may experience as a by-product of extended, intense contemplation.

OBJECTIVES

Short-Term:

  • scouting for a maximum of 72 founding associates who will be responsible for establishing and maintaining the project
  • scouting for a minimum of 36 candidate scientists to participate in the project itself
  • scouting for the support staff specialists (medical, psychological, spiritual and technical) who will help run the project
  • establishing educational frameworks to enable the general public to learn about Project Mind and the vision behind it and to become involved on some level

Long Term:
  • to construct a specially designed building to house Project Mind - for greatly enhancing creative vision in scientists.
We anticipate that our activities for the next 4-5 years, until the project itself is established, will be primarily of an educational, promotional and administrative nature. While our purpose is not to seek wide consensus we do need to cast a wide net in order to find and encourage those exceptional persons who share our vision.

CONCLUDING REMARKS

Those involved in PMF are mindful of the originality of the PMF agenda. It is to be expected that far-reaching aims involving new concepts and approaches will seem impractical to some of those who encounter them for the first time.

Already the coronavirus has turned our world upside down. This shows the great necessity for this project.

PMF is seeking responsible professionals who understand that what is proposed here is philosophically, psychologically and theoretically sound, given to implementation and worthy of your financial support. Legally registered designation.

  • "PMF" and "PM" are contractions used in this document for convenience but are not legally registered names of our foundation.
  • Founding Associates are volunteers who accept the premises of PM and commit themselves to helping to realize the project.
  • Charter members are those who are signatories to the letters of incorporation of PMF in Israel.
