Understanding the phenomenon of consciousness is an endlessly fascinating and recursively challenging endeavour. Any satisfying scientific explanation of the mind must account for conscious experience, and as such it is at the height of our interest.
The CWSL works to understand not only the phenomenon of consciousness itself, but also the perspectives and processes that yield alternate states of consciousness. Higher states of consciousness, lower states of consciousness, and the spectral range in between furnish our conceptualization of how the mind and the world are intimately connected. The study of it allows us to advance our understanding of this connection.
