John Samuel Hagelin (born June 9, 1954) is an American particle physicist, three-time candidate of the Natural Law Party for President of the United States (1992, 1996, and 2000), and director of the Transcendental Meditation movement for the United States.
A former researcher at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) (1981-1982) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) (1982-1984), Hagelin is now Professor of Physics and Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management (MUM). He has conducted research into unified field theory and the Maharishi Effect. His position on consciousness and its relationship to the unified field is controversial.
Non-academic positions Hagelin holds include an appointment by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as Raja of Invincible America, president of the David Lynch Foundation and Honorary Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Maharishi University of Management.
Early life and education 
Hagelin was born June 9, 1954, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He won a scholarship to Taft School for boys, and while he was a student there he was involved in a motorcycle crash that led to hospitalization and a full body cast. During this time he was introduced to quantum mechanics, and the Transcendental Meditation technique (TM), both of which had a major impact on his life.
Hagelin attended Dartmouth College and after his freshman year, a continued interest in Transcendental Meditation led him to Vittel, France, where he become a qualified teacher of the TM technique. He earned an undergraduate degree in physics with highest honors (summa cum laude) from Dartmouth and also co-authored a published paper. He studied physics at Harvard under Howard Georgi, earning a Master's degree in 1976, and PhD in 1981.
Professional careers 
Scientist and academic 
By the time Hagelin had received his Ph.D. from Harvard, he had already published "several serious papers" on particle theory. In 1981, Hagelin became a postdoctoral researcher at the European Center for Particle Physics (CERN) in Switzerland, and in 1982 he moved to the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC).
In 1984, Hagelin left SLAC for Maharishi International University (MIU), where he continued research in physics. Hagelin collaborators Dmitri Nanopolous and John Ellis were uncomfortable with Hagelin's move from Stanford to MIU but continued to work with him. While at MIU, he received funding from the National Science Foundation.
Hagelin is a professor of physics at Maharishi University of Management (formerly MIU). Hagelin is also the Founding President of Maharishi Central University, which was under construction in Smith Center, Kansas until early 2008, when, according to Hagelin, the project was put on hold while the TM organization dealt with the death of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
Theoretical physics research 
During his time at CERN, SLAC and Maharishi University of Management (MUM), Hagelin worked on supersymmetric extensions of the standard model and grand unification theories. In the years 1979–1996, Hagelin published more than 70 papers in the areas of particle physics, electroweak unification, grand unification, supersymmetry, and cosmology, most of them in academic scientific journals. This includes his work on the "flipped SU(5), heterotic superstring theory", considered one of the more successful unified field theories or "theories of everything" and was highlighted in a cover story in Discover magazine.
Hagelin co-authored a 1983 paper entitled "Weak symmetry breaking by radiative corrections in broken supergravity," which is included in a list of the 103 articles in the physical sciences that were cited the most times during the years 1983 and 1984. A 1984 study titled "Supersymmetric relics from the big bang", had been cited over 500 times as of 2007. In a 2012 interview in Science Watch, this study was mentioned by coauthor Keith Olive as being among the work that has given him the greatest sense of accomplishment.
Peter Woit and journalist Christopher Andersen, while critical have also acknowledged Hagelin's work. Woit in his book, Not Even Wrong: The Failure of String Theory and The Search for Unity In Physical Law, precedes his critical remarks on Hagelin's connection of superstring theory and consciousness by acknowledging that Hagelin had published papers in prestigious journals that would eventually be cited in over a hundred other papers. Anderson wrote in a 1992 news article in Nature that Hagelin, co-developer of one of the "better-accepted" unified field theories known as the Flipped SU(5) model, "is by all accounts a gifted researcher well known and respected by his colleagues."
Consciousness and the unified field 
In 1987 and 1989, Hagelin published two papers in the Maharishi University of Management's Journal of Modern Science and Vedic Science on the relationship between physics and consciousness. These papers discuss the Vedic understanding of consciousness as a field, and compare it with theories of the unified field derived by modern physics. Hagelin argues that these two fields have almost identical properties and quantitative structure. He presents theoretical and empirical arguments that he says suggest the two fields are actually one and the same — specifically, that the experience of unity at the basis of the mind achieved during the meditative state is the subjective experience of the very same fundamental unity of existence revealed by unified field theories.
Criticism of the unified field to consciousness 
Hagelin's interest and research in the connection between quantum physics and the Maharishi Effect has been discussed by both colleagues and critics.
Both Woit and Anderson have commented critically on Hagelin's interest in, and publications on consciousness research. Woit says that identification of a unified field of consciousness with a unified field of superstring theory is wishful thinking. He also says that most physicists think Hagelin's views are nonsense. Anderson says Hagelin's attempt to link his work grand unified theories of physics to Transcendental Meditation "infuriates his former collaborators." Dallas Observer political reporter Jonathan Fox wrote that "Once considered a top scientist, Hagelin's former academic peers ostracized him after the candidate attempted to shoehorn Eastern metaphysical musings into the realm of quantum physics." However, Hagelin's collaboration with researchers at CERN and others continued for years after he first introduced his hypotheses regarding physics and consciousness. According to Woit, Hagelin began connecting consciousness and the unified field in the late 1970s as a Ph.D. student at Harvard. Hagelin's collaborative work in particle physics continued until 1994.[a] Anderson says that John Ellis, director of CERN, was "afraid that people might regard [Hagelin's assertions] as rather flaky, and that might rub off on the theory or on us.".
Hagelin's linkage of quantum mechanics and unified field theory with consciousness was critiqued by University of Iowa philosophy and sociology professors Evan Fales and Barry Markovsky in 1997, in the journal Social Forces. They wrote that Hagelin's equating consciousness with the unified field relies on a similarity between quantum mechanical properties of fields and consciousness, and that his arguments rely on ambiguity and obscurity in characterizing these properties. They dismiss Hagelin's parallels between the Vedas and contemporary unified field theories as a reliance on ambiguity and vague analogy supported by constructing arbitrary similarities.
Hagelin was a featured scientist in the movies, What the Bleep Do We Know!?, What the Bleep? Down the Rabbit Hole (2006) and The Secret, which renewed interest in the quantum mind paradigm.
Noetic Advanced Studies Institute 
In their book on complex solutions to the Einstein, Maxwell, Schrödinger and Dirac equations, physicist and parapsychologist Elizabeth Rauscher from the Noetic Advanced Studies Institute and Richard Amoroso editor of Noetic Press and Noetic Journal wrote that both Einstein and Hagelin have suggested that the principle of coherence in biological systems arises from the unified field and that this has also been suggested by Noetic Field Theory.
Maharishi Effect 
In the summer of 1993, Hagelin conducted a project to demonstrate a claimed paranormal effect known as the Maharishi Effect. Approximately 4,000 TM-Sidhi program practitioners gathered in Washington, D.C., where they practiced the TM-Sidhi techniques twice daily in a group for several weeks. Using data obtained from the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department for 1993 and the preceding five years (1988–1992), Hagelin and collaborators followed the changes in crime rates for the area before, during, and after the 6 weeks when the group was gathered in Washington, D.C. Robert L. Park, research professor and former chair of the Physics Department at the University of Maryland and well known skeptic of paranormal claims, regarded the study as a "clinic in data manipulation." Hagelin said that while the number of murders had increased, the number of brutal murders had decreased.  There was a review board, although they were all TM practitioners.
Natural Law Party 
The Natural Law Party (NLP) was founded in 1992 by Hagelin and 12 others who felt that governmental problems could be solved more effectively by following "Natural Laws." The party platform included preventive health care, sustainable agriculture and renewable energy technologies. During his campaigns, Hagelin favored abortion rights without public financing, campaign finance law reform and improved gun control. He proposed a flat tax with no tax for families earning less than $34,000 a year. Hagelin also campaigned to eradicate PACs and soft money campaign contributions and advocated safety locks on guns. He endorsed school vouchers and efforts to prevent war in the Middle East by reducing "people's tension." In a letter to presidential candidate Bill Clinton, Hagelin accepted Clinton's offer to debate "any serious candidate" and informed Clinton and Bush that the "Natural Law Party does not participate in negative campaigning."
The party chose Hagelin and Mike Tompkins as its presidential and vice-presidential candidates in 1992 and 1996. In 1996, Hagelin was on the ballot in 44 states as a presidential candidate. Hagelin ran for president again in the 2000 Presidential election, nominated both by the NLP and by the Perot wing of the Reform Party, which disputed the nomination of Pat Buchanan. Hagelin's running mate in the 2000 election was Nat Goldhaber. A dispute over the Reform Party's nomination generated legal action between the Hagelin and Buchanan campaigns. In September 2000, the Federal Election Commission ruled that Buchanan was the official candidate of the Reform Party, and hence eligible to receive federal election funds. As part of the ruling, the Reform Party convention that nominated Hagelin was declared invalid. In spite of the ruling, Hagelin remained on several state ballots as the Reform Party nominee, due to the independent nature of various state affiliates. He also was the national nominee of the Natural Law Party, and in New York was the Independence Party nominee. During his various campaigns, Hagelin appeared on ABC's Nightline (2000), Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, NBC's Meet the Press, CNN's Larry King Live, the PBS NewsHour, Inside Politics and C-SPAN's Washington Journal. In the middle of the 2000 campaign, Hagelin said that if his party's principles reached the "marketplace of ideas" and were co-opted by the Democrats and Republicans, it would be a victory. During the 2004 primary elections, Hagelin and the Natural Law Party endorsed Democratic candidate Dennis Kucinich and dissolved the NLP as a national organization. As a presidential candidate, Hagelin received 39,212 votes from 32 states in 1992, 113,659 votes from 43 states in 1996 and 83,714 votes from 39 states in 2000.
Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy 
Hagelin is the Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy, a think tank at Maharishi University of Management. According to their website, he has met with members of Congress and officials at the Department of State, and the Department of Defense on the issue of terrorism. Hagelin helped draft a paragraph in Hillary Rodham Clinton's 10,000-page health proposal. According to Hagelin it was the only paragraph in the document that concerned preventive health care.
In 1998, Hagelin gave testimony to the National Institutes of Health, DNA Advisory Committee on germ-line technologies, stating that "recombinant DNA technology is inherently risky because of the high probability of unexpected side-effects." Hagelin moderated a panel on stress at a June 3, 1999 Congressional Prevention Coalition caucus.
US Peace Government and Invincible America 
Hagelin established the US Peace Government (USPG) on July 4, 2003, as an affiliate of the Global Country of World Peace. According to their website, the US Peace Government and the Global Country of World Peace were created to promote evidence-based and sustainable solutions as well as policies of governance that are aligned with Natural Law. As president of the USPG, Hagelin presides over a national assembly of USPG state representatives or governors, who in turn preside over US Peace Government assemblies and capital buildings in their respective states. The USPG announced plans to build a national capital in Washington Township, Smith County, Kansas, near the geographic center of America. The offices for the U.S. Peace Government are located in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, and the office of the President was at The Jefferson hotel, Washington, D.C. in 2004.
Hagelin is the founder and International Director of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace, an international organization of prominent scientists opposed to nuclear proliferation and war. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi appointed Hagelin as the "Raja of Invincible America" on November 19, 2007. As such, Hagelin organized the Invincible America Assembly in Fairfield, Iowa in July 2006. The assembly consists of individuals practicing Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi techniques twice daily. In a press release, Hagelin predicted that as the group's size increased "towards 3500, the world press will have more and more good news to report from America." Hagelin and his Institute for Science Technology and Public Policy web site predicted that when the number of assembly participants reached 2,500, America would have a major drop in crime, and a major reduction in social and political woes. In July 2007, Hagelin said that the Assembly was responsible for the Dow Jones Industrial Average reaching a record high of 14,022 earlier that month, and predicted that the Dow would top 17,000 within a year.
In 1990, Hagelin founded Enlightened Audio Designs Corporation (EAD) with electronics engineer Alastair Roxburgh. As President and Director of Research of EAD, Hagelin designed and manufactured high-end digital-to-analog (D-to-A) converters that were critically acclaimed. In 1995, EAD was the first company in the world to develop and commercialize home theater surround-sound processors incorporating multi-channel digital surround-sound technologies, such as Dolby Digital and DTS. In 2001, EAD Corporation was sold to the Oregon-based company Alpha Digital Technologies. 
In 1992, Hagelin was honored with a Kilby International Award. The award was given for his work in particle physics leading to the development of supersymmetric grand unified field theories, for his innovative applications of advanced principles from control systems theory and optimization theory to digital sound reproduction, and for his research on human consciousness. Chris Anderson questioned the value of the award in an article about Hagelin published in Nature. In 1994, Hagelin received the Ig Nobel Prize for Peace, an annual parody award presented at Harvard University.
