Introduction: What is consciousness? What is information? Those, to me, are the two great mysteries. After 50 years of experimentation research studying consciousness I have come to this conclusion. Max Planck and many of his colleagues in the German school who created mod- ern physics were correct. Consciousness is causal and fundamental. Spacetime arises from consciousness not consciousness from space- time. It is not a new idea, but today, for the first time, we are able to use experimental science to test our ideas about it. It has always been a fundamental belief. The world is created by nonlocal consciousness as an expression of intention, however humanity has formulated that concept across time, culture, and geography, whether in religious or secular terms. Scriptures the world over begin with this predicate, the only difference being the description of the intender and the cultural context. This paper explores the scientific experimentation data showing that intention is a variable that must be considered in science.
