Conscientiology is the science that studies the consciousness, commonly known as ego, soul, essence, etc. Conscientiology is more comprehensive than traditional psychology because its scope of investigation extends beyond the boundaries of physical reality, encompassing issues such as multidimensional manifestation, holosoma (non-physical bodies), and serial existences (the continual process of individual death and subsequent rebirth).
Conscientiological studies are based on scientific principles, consensus, bibliographical research, and self-experimentation.
The word Conscientiology originates from the word ‘consciousness’, hence conscientiology is the scientific study of the consciousness. The term ‘consciousness’ here is used as a synonym for intelligent principle (popularly referred to as self, soul, spirit). Therefore, in conscientiological writings, the article “the” is intentionally used before “consciousness” in order to convey the meaning of individual essence per se and not the state of consciousness as in being lucid or aware.
Projectiology is the science that studies the manifestations of the consciousness in three distinctive states: the physical, the non-physical and the projected states. The main focus of projectiology is researching the phenomenon of the out-of-body experience (OBE) also known as astral projection, astral travel, and projection of the consciousness.
Projectiology theoretically and practically analyzes all of the aspects and consequences of the out-of body experience and other paranormal phenomena. These phenomena are primarily studied as sources of self-knowledge.
Projectiology emphasizes the cosmoethical use of any paranormal phenomena, including the out-of-body experience, all of which should be developed according to a persons most ethical internal principles.
The word Projectiology originates from the root word ‘projection’, as in ‘astral projection’ or ‘projection of the consciousness’, in this sense used to convey the fact of the consciousness projecting itself or its energies outside of the physical body. Hence projectiology is the scientific study of projections of the consciousness.
Like any other science, Conscientiology and Projectiology have a philosophical foundation or paradigm: Consciential Paradigm.
New scientific methodologies and techniques are required to enable the study of the consciousness. It is not possible to study the consciousness through the use of classic methodologies or devices. This is because no matter how sophisticated they may be, physical instruments can, at best, measure physiological alterations, which are merely indirect consequences of the actions of the consciousness being observed.
The basis of the consciential paradigm is that the consciousness itself is the most effective tool to study the consciousness. This inevitably leads to participative research, where the researcher serves as his or her own research subject, while the daily circumstances, both inside and outside the body, serve as his or her laboratory.
It is evident to those who experience lucid out-of-body experiences that the consciousness transcends the physical brain, as the OBEer (or conscious projector) is aware and active while outside the temporarily dormant physical body. According to the consciential paradigm, the consciousness is recognized as being the center or source of intelligence and individuality, something far beyond physical energy and matter. We consider the consciousness, then, to be something much more transcendental than physical awareness.
