We loved talking consciousness with Mark Gober! Consciousness is after all, the source of all our creativity. We hope you’ll find this interview as interesting and intriguing as we did.
Mark Gober is an author whose worldview was turned upside down in late 2016 when he learned of phenomena that threaten the prevailing view in science that consciousness comes from the brain.
After researching extensively for nearly a year, Mark became convinced that a paradigm shift was in order: biology does not produce consciousness; rather, consciousness produces biology.
Mark is a Partner at Sherpa Technology Group, a firm that advises businesses on mergers & acquisitions and strategy. He previously worked as an investment banking analyst in New York.
Mark has been quoted for his opinions on business and technology matters in Bloomberg Businessweek and elsewhere, and has authored internationally published business articles. He graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University, where he was captain of the tennis team.
Mark also represents 2-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Ervin Laszlo’s Institute of New Paradigm Research as Director of Corporate Relations.
In this interview we discuss:
- How a wall street finance guy got into consciousness studies
- Mark’s year of deep research
- How quickly Mark wrote his book and found an agent and publisher
- Creativity and consciousness
- The number two question that remains in all of science
- Mark’s left brain / right brain process of creativity
- What’s essential for flow state
- Mark’s journey into uncertain territory
- Thought leaders and researchers in the field of consciousness
- Epigenetics and consciousness
- Long hidden CIA documents, recently opened
- Research the American Psychology Association has published on psychokinesis, telepathy and other consciousness phenomena
Since the interview, I’ve listened to Mark’s audiobook and Devani is reading the hardcover version of his book and loving it.
Mark’s Journey into Consciousness Studies
Mark Gober’s journey led him to write the book: “An End to Upside Down Thinking: Dispelling the Myth that the Brain Produces Consciousness” where he explores compelling scientific evidence from a diverse set of disciplines, ranging from psychic phenomena to near-death experiences, to quantum physics and beyond.
Mark’s book and message connects strongly with us from our personal interests and experience, but also as and for creators. Creativity begins in consciousness, and then precipitates ideas to our brain.
