Introduction to Neoscience?
Consciousness studies and Neoscience: Neoscience (neo=new Science) Is the application of a scientific methodology in both spatial-temporal and non-spatial-temporal domains of consciousness. Neoscience stipulates several basic elements as a result of exploration and experimentation. These are:
1. That it is consciousness itself that is the ‘observing party’ in any given observation, and that the act of observation is in itself a condition of the experiment.
2. That the observed is also consciousness including spatial-temporal domains.
3. That it is consciousness that makes up all spatial-temporal domains.
4. That consciousness is not limited to, but inclusive of spatial-temporal domains.
5. That beyond Mind there exist an underlying ontology of Love.
6. That by utilizing the scientific method applied in the various domains of consciousness this ontology maybe uncovered.
This understanding is contrasted with traditional and classical scientific observation, in which the focus of the observer is on the physical realm, and items that may be apprehended by the senses (or the extensions thereof).
Neoscientific understandings do not limit apprehension by any one observer or group of observers to the senses but rather to consciousness, by the observer self. This is the focus of Neoscience -- applying the scientific method to Mind and the various domains of consciousness.
Our specialty at the Center of Neoscience is consciousness and its inter-relationship with matter. A large portion of this work is about the processes of thinking, affective experience, and how we know and learn.
Consciousness studies are concerned with states of mind, consciousness, the processes of thought and their corresponding aspects in feelings and sensations. They are more about the ‘how’ of looking at information than they are about specific kinds of information, or thought in-form-ation. Our work in consciousness studies covers the affective components of learning, thinking and processing information as well. From these studies we have developed affective epistemological methods as well as cognitive and meta cognitive models for learning and navigating through Mind, thought and information (or data in formation).
Consciousness studies applications
At the Center for Neoscience (CN) we have taken this 'how' of information and integrated it into mathematical models that represent the ways in which we think and learn. These are utilized in several ways, including vector mapping, process/process and object/process modeling techniques, knowledge representation and 3rd generation web technologies.
Metadata Intl and Rational Data utilizing some of the research from the Center for Neoscience, applying these principles in application-specific areas. This is done by maintaining domain knowledge databases of two types of information. The first type is process based and not content specific, this is 3rd to n-level domain knowledge. The second type of information is content specific and considered 2nd to 3rd level metadata. For more information on applications, see Rational Data.
Bioenergetics Genomics and Neoscience
Neoscience brings together the fields of consciousness studies and genetics in the following ways:
It provides a coherent and verifiable conceptual outline delineating the inter-relationship between consciousness, living organisms energy components, and matter (with specific emphasis on organic matter). See bioenergetics
Outcomes and observations of our research
Observation in non-spatial-temporal domains and spatial-temporal domains (space-time) has yielded evidence that consciousness exists beyond the spatial-temporal domain.
Existential Questions and Existential Rights
Currently we exist in a world where the technology is present to clone and or genetically manipulate virtually any species in existence today. Yet in light of this situation - we find our selves in a dilemma because we lack the criteria in which to make appropriate decisions in this matter. On the one side our advancing technology has given us the promise of drug discovery and the possibility of curing a number of diseases and yet on the other side we are confronted with a number of moral and ethical issues that range from abortion, designer babies, stem cell research, to the cloning of human beings and other forms of life. Beyond this we are confronted with issues of genetically manipulating species beyond the course of thier natural development in both animal and plant kingdoms. Currently most genetic manipulation is done from a structural perspective and does not take into consideration the bioenergetic components of a given genetic component.
There are a number of realities today that take us to a harder look at some significant questions. The current state of post-genomic research and technology, the current level of medical technology, the current global pressures on populations, food availability, are all components of this discussion.
When does life begin and end?
What are the rights of the unborn?
What are the rights of the individual?
What are the rights of a species?
Is there a difference between terminating the life of an individual life form within a species and irreversibly changing the species through genetic manipulation or extinction?
How do these decisions impact the greater circle of life?
How do we define life?
What is sentient?
What is non-sentient?
What are the rights of procreation in contrast with the rights of a species to survive?
These issues bring us into direct conversation about issues relating to the nature of the soul, subtle energy components, consciousness, mind, matter, and genetics. But science to date for the most part has not dealt with the issue of the soul, nor can most religions give objective and universally acceptable evidence, that is accepted by a wide number of the worlds population. Our goal is to bring together scientific evidence and theory within the parameters of the scientific method, that provides answers to some of these questions. It is our hope that by providing a scientific basis for answering these questions that universally acceptable policy can be developed.
The Center For Neoscience is about addressing these issues. With a focus on consciousness studies, bioenergetics, and existential rights we provide information that is central to this debate.
