Mind Science Foundation

1 min read

Located in San Antonio, Texas, the Mind Science Foundation is dedicated to studying the human mind and is particularly interested in finding out how consciousness arises in human beings. To this end, the group funds scientific research into explorations of human consciousness as well as on the origin of life and of the cosmos. The Mind Science Foundation was created in 1958 by multimillionaire entrepreneur Tom Slick, who died in a plane crash four years later at the age of forty-six. He also sponsored two expeditions to Nepal in the 1950s, specifically to try to find evidence that a human-ape known as the yeti existed there.
