New physics?

  1. Jan 15, 2010 #1
    Why is it that more physicists aren't looking at possible connections between quantum physics and consciousness like Wolf and Sarfatti ? Seriously... is there no money in it? Not testable? Is it considered career suicide? What is it? Just curious...

    I'm not an expert on this, but I do know what your talking about.
    My quess is that the experiments involved are very costly. With no foreseeable return on investment, the budgets of many departments could not support the research and so likely would not be approved.
    Not saying there isn't "some" research going on, but I doubt anyone has the money for a full effort.
