Max Cade papers

C. Maxwell Cade, the distinguished British biophysicist, psychobiologist, and inventor of the Mind Mirror, authored a number of lecture notes that have been made available by the Institute for the Awakened Mind for the first time. Although Cade, a fellow of the Institute of Electrical Engineers and the Royal Society of Medicine, wrote and presented many scientific and technical papers, these lecture notes were not intended for publication and thus were not refereed or subjected to peer review. Some of them quote the writings of other prominent researchers.


Read these highly informative and enlightening papers on this webpage. They are a vivid illustration of Cade's genius in science, medicine, psychology and spirituality, and accordingly provide a holistic understanding of the mind-body connection, higher states of consciousness, and mystical experience.

Publications by The Maxwell Cade Foundation

The Maxwell Cade Foundation, a United Kingdom charity, was established after Max passed away in 1985. The foundation organized information on the Mind Mirror and consciousness development, and handed out these papers to people interested in his work. Many of his students, including American humanistic psychologist and author Anna Wise, devised their own training courses.


The first publication, "Biofeedback and the Higher States of Consciousness," provides a superb overview of meditation, the Awakened Mind, and higher awareness.
