Stan Koren

  • Creator of the DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) systems for generating complex magnetic fields.
  • Primary Interests: Complex and imaginary numbers; chaos systems; applications of quantum theory to macroscopic levels.
  • Current Research: Measurement and description of "the electromagnetic soup" in the contemporary living environment; development of new geometries for application of weak complex magnetic fields.

David Webster

  • Dr. David Webster is the Medical Director of Nuclear Cardiology and General Nuclear Medicine of the Sudbury Regional Hospital, President of the Ontario Nuclear Medicine Association, A Member of the Royal Quality Assurance Board for the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and Fully Qualified for interpretation of Positron Emission Tomography. One of his specialties is detecting and treating thyroid cancer. Dr. Webster's interest in consciousness has resulted in innovative integrations of philosophy, quantum mechanics, nuclear medicine, and brain function.
