Adam M. Curry


Adam M. Curry is an inventor and tech entrepreneur in San Francisco. He thinks the idea that consciousness and reality may be interconnected is really cool. He was fascinated enough by the idea to organize the project. Technology advances by trying something new, and he's very excited to explore the horizons of "consciousness technology."

He was the recipient of the MIT Ceres Connection Prize at 17, for an invention that converted electro-gravitational phenomena into signals that can help forecast seismic events, such as earthquakes. Adam has been featured in the Discovery Channel's Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, and is on the board of the Society for Scientific Exploration. He has worked at Princeton's PEAR Lab, and Psyleron.

Julia Mossbridge

Julia Mossbridge, PhD

Science Advisor

Dr. Mossbridge is a Research Associate and Adjunct Faculty member of the Psychology Department at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. She uses computational, behavioral, and physiological techniques to examine how humans integrate what we experience over time into a so-called “stream” of consciousness. Her interest in this topic has led her to examine both mundane aspects of timing (e.g., order effects on reading comprehension, perceptual integration across senses), as well as the more controversial reverse-temporal effects she analyzed in her recent meta-analysis (covered in ABC News 20/20, Wall Street Journal Ideas Market, Fox News, and other mainstream media outlets).

A peer reviewer for Brain Research, Perception, Cognition, PLoS One, Explore, and Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Dr. Mossbridge has received post-doctoral funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Bial Foundation, and the Monroe Institute.

Julia's Ph.D. in Communication Sciences and Disorders is from Northwestern University, her M.A. in Neuroscience is from University of California at San Francisco, and she received her B.A. with highest honors in neuroscience from Oberlin College.
