earliest English language uses of "conscious" and "consciousness"
date back, however, to the 1500s. The English word "conscious"
originally derived from the Latin conscius (con- "together" + scire
"to know"), but the Latin word did not have the same meaning as our
word—it meant knowing with, in other words having joint or common
knowledge with another. There were, however, many occurrences in
Latin writings of the phrase conscius sibi, which translates
literally as "knowing with oneself", or in other words sharing
knowledge with oneself about something.
Consciousness is a
term that refers to the relationship between the mind and the world
with which it interacts. It has been defined as: subjectivity,
awareness, the ability to experience or to feel, wakefulness, having
a sense of selfhood, and the executive control system of the mind.
Despite the difficulty in definition, many philosophers believe that
there is a broadly shared underlying intuition about what
consciousness is. As Max Velmans and Susan Schneider wrote in The
Blackwell Companion to Consciousness: "Anything that we are aware of
at a given moment forms part of our consciousness, making conscious
experience at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of
the time of Descartes and Locke have struggled to comprehend the
nature of consciousness and pin down its essential properties.
Issues of concern in the philosophy of consciousness include whether
the concept is fundamentally valid; whether consciousness can ever
be explained mechanistically; whether non-human consciousness exists
and if so how it can be recognized; how consciousness relates to
language; and whether it may ever be possible for computers or
robots to be conscious. Perhaps the thorniest issue is whether
consciousness can be understood in a way that does not require a
dualistic distinction between mental and physical states or
In recent years,
consciousness has become a significant topic of research in
psychology and neuroscience. The primary focus is on understanding
what it means biologically and psychologically for information to be
present in consciousness—that is, on determining the neural and
psychological correlates of consciousness. The majority of
experimental studies assess consciousness by asking human subjects
for a verbal report of their experiences (e.g., "tell me if you
notice anything when I do this"). Issues of interest include
phenomena such as subliminal perception, blindsight, denial of
impairment, and altered states of consciousness produced by
psychoactive drugs or spiritual or meditative techniques.
psychiatrist Richard Maurice Bucke distinguished between three
types of consciousness: Simple Consciousness, awareness of the
body, possessed by many animals; Self Consciousness,
awareness of being aware, possessed only by humans; and Cosmic
Consciousness, awareness of the life and order of the universe,
possessed only by humans who are enlightened. Many more examples
could be given
Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be
conscious of events, objects or sensory patterns. In this level of
consciousness, sense data can be confirmed by an observer without
necessarily implying understanding. More broadly, it is the state or
quality of being aware of something. In biological psychology,
awareness is defined as a human's or an animal's perception and
cognitive reaction to a condition or event.
Popular ideas about consciousness suggest the phenomenon describes a
condition of being aware of one's awareness or, self-awareness.
Efforts to describe consciousness in neurological terms have focused
on describing networks in the brain that develop awareness of the
qualia developed by other networks
Conscious Life in
the Third Dimension – by Suzan Caroll
What does it
mean to be "conscious" in the physical plane?
Does it simply
mean to be alive or does it mean to also be aware?
And, what are
we aware of?
How do we
choose which of a myriad of perceptions to "consciously" attend
Our physical life
is not just what we hold in our daily conscious mind, it is also the
ability to be "conscious" of what we try to hide deep inside
ourselves. Some of what we try to hide is memories stored in our
unconscious mind and some of our hidden life is stored in our
superconscious mind. To be truly "conscious" in our mundane life we
must also be aware of these other, hidden, portions of our total
consciousness. Otherwise, we will not have access to all of our
choices of perception.>>>
Through all time,
seekers and mystics have asked this question: "What is the
Superconscious?" For the purpose of this section, the Superconscious
will be defined as our total consciousness that is aware of, and has
mastery over, ALL the segments of our Being. In other words, the
Superconscious is the SELF that encompasses all of our "selves".
In the Unconscious
Section, we explored the unconscious archives of our suppressed and
forgotten past to enable us to better understand and heal old
patterns of fear and limitation. In the Conscious Section, we
explored how to calibrate our consciousness in order to create a
reality that resonates to the highest "self" that we can be within
our earthly life. In the Superconscious Section, we shall explore
ways to download our higher dimensional awareness and realities into
our conscious, everyday life. If we can do that, then we can become
our SELF--our true Multidimensional SELF--while holding our earthly
INTO THE SUPERCONSCIOUS – by by Suzan Caroll
In search of the
recognition of our Superconscious SELF, we now climb the seven steps
to the Violet Doorways. We have journeyed into our Unconscious to
awaken Kundalini and invite Her to begin Her journey to join Her
Divine Complement in our Crown chakra (see Unconscious Section). In
the Unconscious Section we examined our first, second, and third
chakras for opening, exploration and healing. In the Conscious
Section we invited Kundalini into our fourth, fifth and six chakras
for further opening, exploration and healing. Now, as we invite
Kundalini into our seventh chakra, our Crown Chakra, She will
initiate the recognition of our latent multidimensional SELF.
multidimensional perspective we are aware that we have many bodies.
Therefore, we can perceive our physical body as our EARTH VESSEL.
This beautiful Vessel can ground our superconscious self into
Gaia--the Unity Conscious of planet Earth. This grounding will
assist Gaia in Her process of returning planet Earth to Her former
glory. It will also align our many dimensional bodies so that we can
better create the reality that we KNOW we deserve.

Hello, I'm John Hagelin, quantum physicist and teach of the
Transcendental Meditation program. Welcome to this introductory
lecture on Transcendental Meditation.
What is Transcendental Meditation? Is it a way to relax? Is it a
technique to promote health, vitality, and longevity? Is it a means
to develop creativity, IQ, and peak mental performance? Or is it a
past to inner peace? Enlightenment? As we will see it is all these
things and more.
To understand Transcendental Meditation and consciousness we need to
understand a little bit about the physical universe. Modern science,
over the past 50 years, has probed deeper levels of physical
reality. Modern science has explored more fundamental levels of
natures functioning. From the superficial level of macroscopic
physics, the sensory objects around us, to the world of the
molecule, atom, nucleus and sub-nuclear levels of natures
functioning as shown in this chart.
This chart reveals the hierarchical structure of the laws of nature.
From superficial diversity to fundamental unity shown at the
foundation of this chart. As modern physics probes deeper levels of
natures functioning it is revealed that more fundamental levels of
nature are progressively more unified. The 4 forces of nature deep
within the atomic nucleus become 3, and 2, and ultimately 1 unified
field of all the laws of nature.

Humans have long
struggled to explain the trait that makes us human: self awareness.
Ancient Greeks and Christian theologians posited a soul separate
from a body. A long line of philosophers have argued that we’re
defined by our thinking human minds, distinct and higher than our
physical selves. Scientists today see evidence of something like
minds and cultures in social animals, but they still seek to explain
why human consciousness rises to become knowledge of a self, why we
have been able to create such complex identities and cultures. How
did we come to be our selves? Neuroscientist Antonio Damasio,

University of Arizona Tucson, AZ
Stuart Hameroff MD. –Director
The study of human
consciousness is one of science's last great frontiers. After being
neglected for many years (i.e. during a period of dominance by
behaviorism in psychology), interest in the science of consciousness
exploded in the last decades, with much progress in neuroscience,
psychology, philosophy, and other areas. The University of Arizona
has been at the center of these developments. The 1994 Tucson
conference on "Toward a Science of Consciousness" is widely regarded
as a landmark event, and the subsequent series of biennial
conferences in Tucson have attracted extraordinary interest.
The Center for
Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona was formed in
1998 with a seed grant from the Fetzer Institute. The Center is a
unique institution whose aim is to bring together the perspectives
of philosophy, the cognitive sciences, neuroscience, the social
sciences, medicine, and the physical sciences, the arts and
humanities, to move toward an integrated understanding of human
consciousness. The Center is unique in its broad spectrum approach.
Other groups tend focus either on cognitive neuroscience, philosophy
or purely phenomenal experiential approaches, whereas the Center not
only integrates these areas, but "thinks outside the box" of
conventional wisdom which has thus far, at least, failed to make
significant breakthroughs. The Center has also inspired other groups
such as the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness
and those who organize other conferences.

Primacy of Consciousness - Peter Russell - Full Version ( 1 Hr:
Russell explores the problems science has explaining consciousness
and proposes that consciousness is not created by the brain, but is
inherent in all beings. He shows why mind is more fundamental than
matter, and the the key to this shift is the revolution in our
understanding of the light.
The fundamental nature of reality is actually
consciousness. In his documentary Peter Russell explores the reasons
why consciousness may be the fundamental essence of the Universe.
Many have made such claims from metaphysical perspectives, but the
possibility has always been ignored by the scientific community. In
this talk, he discusses the problems the materialist scientific
world view has with consciousness and proposes an alternative world
view which, rather than contradicting science, makes new sense of
much of modern physics. He presents a reasoned argument that shows
how they are pointing towards the one thing science has always
avoided considering – the primary nature of consciousness.
This documentary basically seeks answers for these
questions: What is consciousness? How could consciousness arise from
matter? Paradigm shifts in science. The materialist meta paradigm. A
new meta paradigm. Consciousness is in everything. Everything is in
consciousness. Matter is a mental construct. Relativity and light’s
point of view. Light lies beyond space, time and matter. Photons and
the quantum of action. Parallels between light and consciousness.
Consciousness as the fundamental reality. The mystical experience of
consciousness. Who am I? What is the self? The meeting of science

Philosopher and scientist Dan Dennett argues that human
consciousness and free will are the result of physical processes and
are not what we traditionally think they are. His 2003 book Freedom
Evolves explores the way our brains have evolved to give us -- and
only us -- the kind of freedom that matters, while 2006's Breaking

Traveling back to Earth, having just walked on the moon, Apollo 14
astronaut Edgar Mitchell had an experience for which nothing in his
life had prepared him. As he approached the planet we know as home,
he was filled with an inner conviction as certain as any
mathematical equation he'd ever solved. He knew that the beautiful
blue world to which he was returning is part of a living system,
harmonious and whole—and that we all participate, as he expressed it
later, "in a universe of consciousness."
experience radically altered his worldview: Despite science's superb
technological achievements, he realized that we had barely begun to
probe the deepest mystery of the universe—the fact of consciousness
itself. He became convinced that the uncharted territory of the
human mind was the next frontier to explore, and that it contained
possibilities we had hardly begun to imagine. Within two years of
his expedition, Edgar Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic
Sciences in 1973.
Dr. Mitchell serves on the board of directors of the institute. He
continues to be active at institute events, including lectures and

An adventure into the mysteries of
Consciousness through Quantum Mechanics to discover the secrets it
and religion say that a single entity or
force created the universe and is
omnipresent, maintaining and governing the
fundamental machinery of everything in this
and other universes. In Hinduism, Brahman is
the one supreme, universal Spirit that is
the origin and support of the universe. The
very first book of Hindus named Rig Veda
proclaims, “Ekam Sat, Viprah Bahudha
Vadanti,” which means “there is
only one truth, only men describe it in
different ways.” Recent scientific
discoveries validate the concept of Brahman,
the ultimate reality for the Hindus.
and cosmologists call this divine source the
Unified Field. In a profound sense, Brahman
(the Vedantic concept) and the Unified Field
of physics appear to be synonymous. Vedanta
is a word used in Hindu philosophy as a
synonym for that part of the Veda texts
known also as the Upanishads. Vedanta
philosophy has two main concepts. The first
is the human’s real nature is divine and the
second concept is that the aim of human life
is to realize this divinity.
In the Vedic language God
and the realized individuals are described
as “anor aniyan mahato mahiyan” (Katha
Upanisad 1-2-20), meaning “God is smaller
than the smallest and greater than the
greatest.” This means that whether something
is extremely large or infinitesimal, it is
still made of the same divine source. God
is present everywhere and in everyone.
neuroscientists, psychologists and mystics
have evolved to the point where a
significant paradigm shift is happening as
predicted by Dr Amit Goswami, endowed with a
Rishis insight: “While
mainstream science remains materialist, a
substantial number of scientists are
supporting and developing a paradigm based
on the primacy of consciousness…”
Goswami is convinced that the universe, in
order to exist, requires a conscious
sentient being to be aware of it.
The universe is and can be
viewed as symbiotically and totally
unbroken, interconnected, highly networked,
integrated, and harmonized. The entire
universe is contained holographically in
each of its parts, unifying matter, energy
and consciousness by systems, subsystems and
sub, sub, systems at macro and at micro
levels through nonlocal, local, vacuum

understood or to be established.

- Evolutionary Philosophy
Sri Aurobindo (15 August 1872 – 5 December 1950), was
an Indian nationalist, freedom fighter, philosopher, yogi, guru, and
poet. He joined the Indian movement for freedom from British rule
and for a duration became one of its most important leaders, before
developing his own vision of human progress and spiritual evolution.
He was also one of the famous Radical leaders of India during the
Indian National Movement.
The central theme of Aurobindo's vision was the evolution of human
life into life divine. He wrote: "Man is a transitional being. He is
not final. The step from man to superman is the next approaching
achievement in the earth evolution. It is inevitable because it is
at once the intention of the inner spirit and the logic of nature's
process." Thus, Aurobindo created a dialectic mode of salvation not
only for the individual but for all mankind.
Sri Aurobindo argues that humankind is not the last rung in the
evolutionary scale, but can evolve spiritually beyond its current
limitations to a state of spiritual and supramental existence. This
evolutionary existence he called a "Divine life on Earth",
characterized by a spiritualized, supramental,

Campbell began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob

the early 1970s where he and a few others were instrumental in
getting Monroe's laboratory for the study of consciousness up and
running. These early drug-free consciousness pioneers helped design
experiments, developed the technology for creating specific altered
states, and were the main subjects of study (guinea pigs) all at the
same time. Campbell has been experimenting with, and exploring the
subjective and objective mind ever since. For the past thirty years,
Campbell has been focused on scientifically exploring the

WHAT IS CONSCIOUS EVOLUTION?
Due to the increased power given us through science and technology,
we are learning how nature works – the gene, the atom, the brain. We
are affecting our own evolution by everything we do. With these new
powers we can destroy our life support systems …or we can move
toward a hope-filled future of immeasurable possibilities. We are
the generation of choice, and we do not have much time to choose!
Conscious Evolution is the worldview that has arisen precisely at
this moment in history to deal with the new human condition. It is a
vision and a direction to help us navigate through this transitional
period to the next stage of human evolution. As Einstein admonished,
humankind cannot solve its problems from the same place of
consciousness in which we created them. A new place of consciousness
is required. In simple terms Conscious Evolution takes place when we
intend to grow in consciousness and use our increasing awareness to
guide our actions and achieve a positive future. Bela H. Banathy,
author of Guided Evolution of Society, offers this additional
understanding of Conscious Evolution: It is a process by which we
can individually and collectively take responsibility for our
future. It is a process of giving direction to the evolution of
human systems by purposeful action. And most importantly, Conscious
Evolution enables us, if we take responsibility for it, to use our
creative power to guide our own lives and the evolution of the
systems and the communities in which we live and work. It is a
process by which individuals and groups, families, organizations,
and societies can envision and create images of what should be, and
bring those images to life by design. Conscious Evolution is at the
core a spiritually-motivated endeavor. Its precepts reside at the
heart of every great faith, affirming that humans have the potential
of being co-creators with Spirit, with the deeper patterns of nature
and universal design. The promise of Conscious Evolution is nothing
less than the emergence of a universal humanity capable of guiding
its own evolution into a future of unimaginable co-creativity .

This book addresses the role and significance of consciousness
expansion in the psychospiritual transformations of the individual,
and in the transformations of culture and society associated with
the 1960s. In the first part is a description of how the holistic
transformation teachings of alchemy, originating in the sacred
science of ancient Egypt, persecuted by the Church in the Middle
Ages, and ridiculed by scientific modernism, were revived in the
20th century by the work of two Swiss scientists: C.G. Jung, who
identified alchemical symbolism as the objective language of the
psyche; and Albert Hofmann, who, with the discovery of LSD
reconnected the broken link between Spirit and Matter, the
mysterious link known traditionally as the Philosophers Stone. In
the second part, is a description of how the introduction of
consciousness expanding substances into Western culture, synchronous
with the invention of the atomic bomb at the height of World War II,
was followed by the socio-cultural upheavals of the 1960s. These
social transformation movements can be seen as a response of the
collective psyche to the unprecedented challenges to civilization
posed by nuclear war, environmental destruction and rampant
population growth. Though seemingly counter-cultural in that they
countered the domination agenda of the power-elites, were really the
attempt to articulate an expanded consciousness and a vision of
society centered around humane, ecological, creative and spiritual

Theory's true or am I in control of my own destiny? Where is the
Human race going? What is God and what is a soul? Age old questions
which have been around since the birth of mankind are finding new
vitality as a revolution is taking place in science. Since quantum
physics arrived, old dogmatic views are falling away and a new and
fascinating picture of reality is emerging, a view of infinite
possibilities engaging mankind to remake the world inside and

Collective Evolution' is a documentary aimed at showing the current
state of the world, why it needs to be changed, and how each and
every one of us can play a role in changing it. The documentary
addresses this need for change through five individual yet
interrelated structures society has come to rely upon --finance,
education, religion, entertainment/ media, and health/ food. Each of
these structures is fully broken down to show viewers how they have
come into place, and why their continued existence can no longer be
supported. The documentary concludes by drawing attention to
consciousness. Addressing who we truly are, what we have come on
this planet to do, and most importantly how we can go about doing
of the future as seen through hypnotically induced future-life
progressions performed by Drs Wambach and Snow, on hundreds of
volunteers. Their combined stories provide us a glimpse of what our
future may contain: a choice between a violent apocalypse of
conflict and destruction or a global spiritual awakening.

your future the same way your eyes prevent you from walking into a

The term "Operation Terra" refers to both a body of
information and an operational concept. The information was
telepathically transmitted by a group of higher-density beings who
refer to themselves as "The Hosts of Heaven." Their "messenger" is a
3D woman named Sara, who used to be connected with a 4D woman named
Lyara, so much of the material on this site is signed "Lyara." Lyara
withdrew from her connection to Sara in March 2009. Sara is now
connected with a 4D woman named Adonna and is presently in the
process of merging upwards into her.
This information was initially presented as a series of Messages —
cosmic "lessons" from these celestial beings…. The concept of
Operation Terra is one of assisting Planet Earth in her ascension to
her next form — the new Earth….
For millennia, humans have pondered the existential questions of
"Who am I?", "Why am I here?" and "What should I be doing with my
life?" However, now that we are standing at the threshold of the
ending of an entire 4.5 billion-year cycle of Creation, the logical
questions to ask are "What will happen when this cycle ends?", "How
should I prepare for this event?", "Where am I going?" and "What
part do I play within the larger drama?" ….
The Messages !!!!!!
… You are either in fear
or you are in love. You must make this choice over and over again,
in each moment that presents.
… Only those with love in their hearts — not fear — will be lifted.
The vibration of fear will not be compatible with the new Earth,
Terra. There will be no death, disease, or aging on Terra. All of
those things are the result of unexpressed fear.
… The ultimate fear is the fear of death. Despite the abundant
testimony of those who have been "to death's door" and returned to
tell about it, the fear of death underlies every other fear you
have. Many subtle fears are tied to the idea of being socially
unacceptable in one way or another.
…. On the saying: "As above, so below." The second part of that is
"As within, so without."
…The fact that you have never been and never will be separate from
Source. The Christ has never left you, either, and so he cannot
"return." This waiting for the "coming" that is present in all
traditions throughout your world is really an expression of the
sense of being cut off, of not being connected. The "coming" is
about YOU, your coming back into the awareness of who you really are
(an expression of the Creator) and coming back into your own true
nature and estate…
You are the "Second Coming," because you are destined to return or
"come back" to what you were before.
… All the feelings that you must have a savior who is somehow out
of reach is part of the Big Lie. There is only one Source, There is
only ONE LIFE being lived, through each aspect of the Creation. You
are both a part of and contain the whole of the Creator. The Creator
can be accessed within yourself, and when you have achieved union
with the Creator, you will know who you are. ….

Long ago, our
bodies evolved from primates. Even longer ago, our minds evolved
from the stars. But before the universe was even created, our
spirits have always existed as part of the divine in even higher
dimensions. At the conscious (physical) level, our bodies are like a
miniature replica of the solar system. Our hearts perform the
function of the sun – the center of the system. Other organs within
our body are also used by our souls to find a means of expression.
The planets exert astrological vibrations upon our bodies that
influence our personalities and soul patterns. At the subconscious
(soul) level, the solar system is our larger body. We are connected
to the planets, the stars, spiritual realms and entities. On the
superconscious (spirit) level, we are one with the Whole. At
this level, we are on a conscious level with all there is – the

Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos
By Brian Greene
the best-selling author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of
the Cosmos comes his most expansive and accessible book to date—a
book that takes on the grandest question: Is ours the only universe?
was a time when “universe” meant all there is. Everything. Yet, in
recent years discoveries in physics and cosmology have led a number
of scientists to conclude that our universe may be one among many.
With crystal-clear prose and inspired use of analogy, Brian Greene
shows how a range of different “multiverse” proposals emerges from
theories developed to explain the most refined observations of both
subatomic particles and the dark depths of space: a multiverse in
which you have an infinite number of doppelgängers, each reading
this sentence in a distant universe; a multiverse comprising a vast
ocean of bubble universes, of which ours is but one; a multiverse
that endlessly cycles through time, or one that might be hovering
millimeters away yet remains invisible; another in which every
possibility allowed by quantum physics is brought to life. Or,
perhaps strangest of all, a multiverse made purely of math.
Greene, one of our foremost physicists and science writers, takes us
on a captivating exploration of these parallel worlds and reveals
how much of reality’s true nature may be deeply hidden within them.
And, with his unrivaled ability to make the most challenging of
material accessible and entertaining, Greene tackles the core
question: How can fundamental science progress if great swaths of
reality lie beyond our reach?

- by Steven Lowis
Presenting metaphysics and quantum physics in a way that is
accessible to all, “The Meaning of Life – Understanding Purpose and
the Nature of Reality” provides a sound, scientific foundation upon
which to support a general theory of purpose, and offers
groundbreaking insight into the true identity of ‘God’.
stunning work details the quantum mechanics at the heart of our
‘reality’, and shows how human beings can influence it, providing
the correct interpretations and meanings behind ideas and theories
such as the ‘Observer Effect’, ‘The Copenhagen Interpretation’, and
the ‘Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle’.
Finally, a book that unites quantum mechanics, philosophy, and
spirituality in order to answer the one question that every human
being asks – “Why am I here?” This is a book for those who are
seeking answers. …

Gateways to the Other World, Part 2 - DVD (2007)
Gnostician and New Age
expert Philip Gardiner hosts the video release Gateways to the Other
World: Quantum Mind of God, Part 2 (2007), in which he probes the
questions that mankind has pondered, for centuries, regarding the
existence of an afterlife. Gardiner posits the theory that it is
possible for each human to journey to alternate realities within
one's mind, and that prehistoric men, in fact, learned this practice
millennia ahead of "advanced" modern man. Gardiner also touches on
such subtopics as the secrets of the Great Pyramid, the idea of
quantum entanglement and the methods of ancient healing inherent
when one journeys to advanced metaphysical realms.
