Dr. Claude Swanson, PhD
Board of Directors
Dr. Claude Swanson was educated as a physicist at MIT and Princeton University. During those years he worked at the MIT Science Teaching Center, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and a Virginia cyclotron in the summer. At Princeton he received the National Science Foundation Fellowship and Putnam Fellowship. His PhD thesis at Princeton was done in the "Gravity Group," which focuses on experimental cosmology and astronomy, and was headed by Prof. Robert Dicke.
Swanson conducted postgraduate work at Princeton and Cornell Universities on the design of superconducting plasma containment vessels for fusion energy systems. He then began work for Aeronautical Research Associates of Princeton, a consulting company, and later formed his own consulting company, which carried out studies in applied physics for commercial and governmental agencies.
For the last twenty years, interspersed with his conventional professional career in applied physics, Dr. Swanson has pursued investigations into "unconventional physics." His principal interest has been unified field theory, the so-called "Theory of Everything," which could explain the universe at the deepest possible level. This has led him to investigate many aspects of the science of consciousness. His latest research focuses on the force that has been overlooked by conventional Western physics, which serves to unify and explain many of the unusual aspects of consciousness and explains how the “life energy” interacts with the material world. It explains the true nature of the aura and how consciousness and healing forces are able to exert their effects over long distances. Dr. Swanson has recently published his second book, Life Force, The Scientific Basis, which continues the exploration of his first book, The Synchronized Universe.
