Maharishi University of Management's online journal, the International Journal of Mathematics and Consciousness, was launched with the goal of examining consciousness from the point of view of mathematics.
The inspiration for the journal came from Professor Tony Nader, MD, PhD, MARR, who has written numerous books on the expression of Veda and the Vedic literature in the human physiology. Dr. Nader is both the founder and editor-in-chief of the journal.
''Dr. Nader is very interested in working with mathematicians to develop ways to describe consciousness and higher states of consciousness using mathematics, as well as to put concepts from the Vedic literature into a mathematical framework,'' said Cathy Gorini, professor of mathematics at MUM and executive editor of the journal.
In his Introduction to the journal, Dr. Nader writes: ''Mathematics is a fundamental and indispensable tool of all sciences, while at the same time it is an expression of abstract human awareness and intellect. It is, therefore, the most precise scientifically reliable tool in the exploration of the dynamics of consciousness. It can be seen as the precise abstract representation of consciousness at work.''
The inaugural issue of the journal featured a paper by Dr. Nader, entitled ''Consciousness Is All There Is: A Mathematical Approach with Applications'' — the beginning of a series of papers aimed at solving the problem of how the physical universe emerges from consciousness.
''The journal is also a catalyst for the development of a comprehensive mathematical foundation for the science of consciousness, analogous to the set-theoretic foundation for the science of mathematics,'' said John Lediaev, emeritus associate professor of mathematics at the University of Iowa and associate editor of the journal. ''This development is possible because the universal elements of mathematics mirror those of consciousness.''
The journal welcomes articles from all mathematicians and scientists, presenting their theories of consciousness using the rigorous approach of mathematics. Maharishi University of Management is the journal's hosting institution. The editorial board is composed of several MUM faculty members, including Dr. Anne Dow, Dr. Paul Corazza, and Dr. John Hagelin, as well as professors from other universities.
