For the full program:

The Multidimensional Personal Experience and Scientific Education

Ashley Melidosian



The study of the multidimensional consciousness (human soul) is a multidisciplinary field that draws research from theories and practices in psychology, anthropology, sociology and other similar fields. However, some of the largest contributions to the science of consciousness come from the personal experience.The non-transferable multidimensional personal experience is key to discovering the vast reality of consciousness and the nature of our universe. These multidimensional experiences are capable of bringing the “experiencer” to a profound level of understanding about their evolutionary condition. However, it is the very personal nature of these experiences that can lead to ambiguities and equally hinder scientific and evolutionary progress. This presentation discusses the complications involved with teaching and researching multidimensional ideas in an educational setting in addition to discussing the experience versus objectivity binomial. 


An Investigation into the Concrete Mechanisms of the Life Task

David Collura



Within conscientiology, it is understood that each of our lives was charged with a particular purpose before we were born; and that, throughout life, we employ our consciential traits to fulfill this life task, commonly referred to as the existential program. However, conscientiology lacks a coherent model describing the concrete mechanisms which compose the existential program; and therefore complicates our ability to personalize and innovate our approach to completing the existential program. This presentation theorizes that the existential program is essentially a holistic, personal process of energetic self-transformation, which manifests through many secondary mechanisms, such as exposure to new experiences and quality of interpersonal relationships. A new sub-field of study known as proexomechanics is proposed, which would be the study of mechanisms involved in the life task. By establishing and enriching this field, the author hopes to promote autonomy and self-determination in how we live out our life’s greatest potential.



Consciousness-Centric Urbanism: a Modality for Applied Consciousness Science

Manori Sumanasinghe

Sri Lanka / USA


It is proposed that practical applications of consciousness research can support the development of the science.  In demonstrating the pragmatic applications of consciousness research, cross-disciplinary bridging is utilized as a strategy for mutual insinuation between established fields and consciousness science. This work intends to launch an applied consciousness science discipline: consciousness-centric architecture and urbanism.  This poster will explore the ramifications of consciousness science to architecture and urbanism and vice-versa. 


Nonsymbolic Experience and Multidimensional Evolution

Michael Lydon



This poster presentation will explore the nature of consciousness as it transitions towards persistent nonsymbolic functioning in the normal physical waking state. Nonsymbolic functioning may be described as a type of experiential orientation that is not symbolic or conceptual in nature. This presumes that most humans are oriented to some form of conceptual identification at an unconscious level – for instance, “I am a [man/woman/tall/short/young/old/this/that]” – in short, all of the possible myriad forms of localized identity. Persistent nonsymbolic functioning is an ongoing form of experience in which one’s deepest sense of self is no longer defined by conceptual attachments, although this does not mean that one no longer experiences concepts or the other symbolic contents of consciousness. Persistent nonsymbolic experience is correlated with a reduction in self-referential thought, less suffering, and a closer proximity to relative emotional and energetic imperturbability (i.e. freedom from psychic intrusion).


The Age of Useful Longevity: Evidence of a New Consciential Time

Sónia Ferreira



In the Age of Useful Longevity individuals will be sufficiently aware regarding the importance of the late stages of life, and will transform it in an evolutionary productive periodAs aresult the Earth will go through a planetary thosenic shift. How to best occupy one’s life? What should one prioritizeThis will be questions people will have to answer as life expectancy increases and many individuahave the opportunity to dedicate more time to the fulfillment of their individual and group life missions. This presentation will also explore some challengesfaced by the elderly, as well as the current research on longevity, the profile of the active elder, and planetary repercussions of productive longevity.


Strategies for a Lucid Desoma (The role of renovation)

Trisha J. Hargaden

Ireland / USA

“Dying,” is not always a peaceful process both for the person transitioning as well as for those left behind. If we could rehearse that transition, what would it look like? How would this rehearsal affect our living and dying? What would it be like to die consciously; fully aware that this transition is part of a continuous journey and that once the physical body has been discarded, we, as consciousnesses, continue to exist at a different energetic frequency? This poster presentation addresses these questions and looks at the role renovation can play in preparing for extraphysical life, and how this can potentially help us experience our true essence as a consciousness when our physical body has been discarded. It explores possible obstacles that could hinder the renovation process and presents strategies that could help us increase our level of lucidity, overcome these obstacles and accelerate our evolution.
