Biography

John Samuel Hagelin (born June 9, 1954) is the leader of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) movement in the United States. He is president of the Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa, and honorary chair of its board of trustees. The university was established in 1973 by the TM movement’s founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, to deliver a “consciousness-based education”..

Hagelin was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the second of four sons, to Mary Lee Hagelin, née Stephenson, a school teacher, and Carl William Hagelin, a businessman. He was raised in Connecticut, and won a scholarship to the Taft School for boys in Watertown. In July 1970, while at Taft, he was involved in a motorcycle crash that led to a long stay, in a body cast, in the school infirmary. During his time there, he began reading about quantum mechanics and was introduced to TM by a practitioner, Rick Archer, who had been invited to the school to talk about it.

In 1975 he obtained his A.B. in physics with highest honors (summa cum laude) from Dartmouth. He went on to study physics at Harvard University under Howard Georgi, earning a master’s degree in 1976 and a Ph.D. in 1981. By the time he had received his Ph.D., he had published several papers on particle theory.

He went on to study physics at Harvard University under Howard Georgi, earning a master’s degree in 1976 and a Ph.D. in 1981. By the time he had received his Ph.D., he had published several papers on particle theory.

In the years 1979–1996, Hagelin published over 70 papers about particle physics, electroweak unification, grand unification, supersymmetry and cosmology, most of them in academic scientific journals. He co-authored a 1983 paper in Physics Letters B, “Weak symmetry breaking by radiative corrections in broken supergravity”, that became one of the 103 most-cited articles in the physical sciences in 1983 and 1984. In a 2012 interview in Science Watch, co-author Keith Olive said that his work for the 1984 study was one of the areas that had given him the greatest sense of accomplishment. A 1984 paper by Hagelin and John Ellis in Nuclear Physics B, “Supersymmetric relics from the big bang”, had been cited over 500 times by 2007.

In 1981 Hagelin became a postdoctoral researcher for few months at the European Center for Particle Physics (CERN) in Switzerland, and in 1982 he moved to the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in California. He left SLAC in 1983, reportedly because of personal problems. A year later he joined Maharishi International University (MIU), later named the Maharishi University of Management (MUM), as chair of its physics department. Two of Hagelin’s previous collaborators, Dimitri Nanopoulos and John Ellis, were uncomfortable with his move to MIU, but they continued to work with him. While at MIU, Hagelin received funding from the National Science Foundation.

Facts & Trivia

Ranked on the list of most popular Politician. Also ranked in the elit list of famous celebrity born in United States. John Hagelin celebrates birthday on June 9 of every year.

In 1987 and 1989 Hagelin published two papers in the Maharishi University of Management’s Journal of Modern Science and Vedic Science in which he claimed that superstring theory’s “unified field” was identical to what Maharishi Mahesh Yogi called the “unified field of consciousness”. Hagelin argued that consciousness is a fundamental property of the natural world, and that TM practitioners can experience a state of consciousness “in which the observer, the process of observation, and the observed are unified”. This, he argued, is the experience of the unified field of physics.

During his time at CERN, SLAC and MUM, Hagelin worked on supersymmetric extensions of the standard model and grand unification theories. His work on the flipped SU(5) heterotic superstring theory is considered one of the more successful unified field theories, or “theories of everything”, and was highlighted in 1991 in a cover story in Discover magazine.

In 1992 Hagelin received a Kilby International Award from the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce “for his promising work in particle physics in the development of supersymmetric grand unified field theory”. According to a member of the selection committee, Hagelin’s nomination was proposed by another selection-committee member who was a fellow TM practitioner. Chris Anderson, in a 1992 Nature article about Hagelin’s first presidential campaign, questioned the value of the award.

The party chose Hagelin and Mike Tompkins as its presidential and vice-presidential candidates in 1992 and 1996. Hagelin received 39,212 votes from 32 states in 1992 (and 23 percent of the vote in Jefferson County, where MUM is located), and 113,659 votes from 43 states in 1996 (21 percent in Jefferson County).
