"The recent Julian Jaynes Society Conference on Consciousness and Bicameral Studies was an unprecedented success. Participants from around the world presented new ideas and insights into the problems of consciousness and its origins. Discussions continued through breaks and lunch. It was impossible not to learn something, and everyone was receptive to each other's ideas. There were many academic disciplines represented, and people freely shared their insights from their different fields."

"This was the first conference I had ever gone to, so I didn't know what to expect, but everything was organized very well, and I had a great time listening to all of the interesting presentations. I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the presenters, and their presentations, which covered a wide-range of topics. Most of all, I enjoyed meeting open-minded people from all over the world — hopefully many of the people I met will be friends for life."

— Matt McClendon, Somerset, KY

"I thought the conference was exceptionally well organized, surpassing my expectations. The range and grouping of the speakers made each day a fascinating intellectual adventure. I met so many interesting people and look forward to further opportunities to get together and/or communicate via Facebook, e-mail, etc. Dinner conversations were amazing adventures in themselves, so beyond the pale of normal discourse, and fun! Thanks for bringing us together!"
