“In the 1990s, five scientists set up a laboratory in Todmorden, West Yorkshire to understand whether there is consciousness in rock and what, if anything, we can learn form them. The team was composed of two geologists, a petrologist and two neuroscientists, each with their own specialisation. It is worth noting that these five were somewhat on the fringes of the scientific community and their methods had been laughed at. Particularly the introduction of traditional neuroscience techniques into the realm of geology.”

Alex R. Flint is one of the scientist who worked on this research in the 90’s. During this research she recorded her thought proces and elaborated on her relationship with the rocks she was dealing with. Looking for proof and in search of truth.
