The opportunity for the IXth Vigier conference to create a place in history depends highly on modeling it after the series of Solvay Conferences (Conseils Solvay) beginning in Brussels, Belgium in 1911, where Niels Bohr (5th, 1927) told Einstein to 'stop telling God what to do.' This is interesting in itself because the new age of discovery brings us full circle to the time of Galileo to heal the rift between science and theology, no longer being considered mutually exclusive but now as opposite ends of the long continuum of human understanding where metaphysical insight can now be found to have utility in scientific theory formation. To see this birth of transcendence (or noetic insight as ancient Greek philosopher Plato called it) as a scientific tool go to: http://www.worldscientific.com/
The process of founding quantum mechanics through the Solvay Conferences took 16 years (1st to 5th conference). Reading of the 8th Vigier forward will show the process for and discovery of an experimental protocol that will empirically usher in the new age of discovery. The success of the Solvay conferences is creditied to its format. Special colloquium speakers were chosen by the chairman for a series of morning lectures; then in the afternoon these lectures were rigorously debated in roundtable discussions. Once the seminal experiment is performed, if successful, the new field of Unified Field Mechanics will begin in earnest and the world will no longer be the same as this age of discovery will pale all others!
The symposium Chairmen are Profs. Richard L. Amoroso (Noetic Advanced Studies Institute) , Peter Rowlands (Universit of Liverpool) & Louis H Kauffman (University of Illinois at Chicago).
