The definition of Consciousness has eluded science thus far. As you will discover in this conversation, when we go into a state of expanded consciousness the ability to measure the brain activities stop. However, this fact does tell us when a person goes into that state, i.e. the lack of measurements is the clue, we can tell where the gate is, but we cannot peer through it with technology, we can only experience it within ourselves. Subtle energy changes with the expansion of consciousness, and that we can measure, so there are ways we can start to connect the dots. Of course to satisfy the terms of what is empirical data and isn't, we need to prove the means as to how we are connecting the dots and their validity.
This episode is a first look into the "Science of Consciousness" and I hope to bring you more interviews with other perspectives on this topic.
