Elizabeth Rauscher

Bio: Elizabeth A. Rauscher is an American physicist and parapsychologist. She is a former researcher with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the Stanford Research Institute and NASA. In 1975 Rauscher co-founded the Berkeley Fundamental Fysiks Group, an informal group of physicists who met weekly to discuss quantum mysticism and the philosophy of quantum physics. David Kaiser argued in his book, How the Hippies Saved Physics that this group helped to nurture ideas which were unpopular at the time within the physics community, but which later, in part, formed the basis of quantum information science. She was also a pioneer in developing a physics of the ‘paranormal’ and paraphysics while working with the group at SRI on the initial remote viewing project for the government. Rauscher has an interest in psychic healing and faith healing and other paranormal claims but presently spends most of her time conducting advanced research in unification, theoretical physics and the physics of consciousness.
