Come venture in the slipstream that leads to the center of the Self. Conscious experiences belong to streams of conscious experiences, and these streams are part of nature's process. This process has aspects that are described in psychological language, in terms of thoughts, ideas, or feelings which have various qualities that have been given names by persons.
Each person is an aspect of nature's process that possesses a stream of consciousness. We can say, therefore, that a stream of conscious thoughts has psychologically described properties. What "has" a psychologically described property is primarily a conscious experience; secondarily the stream of conscious experiences to which the experience belongs. Thirdly, the person (an aspect of nature's process) "has" this stream of consciousness.
If experience is occuring, then to what is that experience occuring? But “In what?” is the correct question, and the answer is in a stream of consciousness which is part of nature's psychophysical process and "to" a person by appearing in that person's stream of consciousness.
ARTiculation & Logical Closure
Each human person is an aspect of nature's process with both physically described and psychologically described aspects. The physically described aspects specify *potentialities* or objective tendencies for certain psychophysical events to occur. Von Neumann has spelled out the currently known rules for the scientifically known connection between the physically and psychologically described aspects of nature's process.
Abstract ego is a term that describes aspects that are tighly tied to the physical aspects of brains, but are not fixed by specifying the prior physically described quantum state of the universe. The quantum state of the universe fixes only the potentialities for (collapse/reduction) events that-are closely connected to increments in human knowledge. This is the key to quantum theory. The events have psychologically described aspects, which are what we observe/experience and describe as empirical data. They are not supernatural or unobservable, but are rather a core part of the quantum mechanical description, and the only part of nature unequivocally known to be real.
But nature's overall process needs a (sub)process that partitions the continuum of potentialities into some set of experiencable parts.At least that is how conventional (Copenhagen/vN) QM works in real scientific practice. In this theory there is a psychologically described aspect that is an integral part of the whole dynamical structure, and that continues to be essential (in connection with process 1) when the brain is made part of the aspect of nature that is described in quantum physical terms. (Stapp, 11/2006)
BUT IS COPENHAGEN A RELIABLE REALITY-MATCHING THEORY OF QM, EVEN THOUGH "IT WORKS"??? WE THINK NOT and attempt to describe why, here.

"The creative action is always at the boundary or leading edge of any field."
Iona Miller, consultant and transdisciplinarian, is a nonfiction writer for both the academic and popular press, hypnotherapist (ACHE) and multimedia artist. Her work is an omnisensory fusion of paramedia ecology, science-art, chaos theory, plenum physics, and emergent paradigm shift melding experiential psychotherapy, new physics, biophysics, philosophy, cosmology, healing, creativity, qabalah, magick, metaphysics, trendspotting, and social contexts. Rather than having an interest in specific doctrines, she is interested in the EFFECTS of doctrines from religion, science, psychology, and the arts. Our beliefs are the moldable raw material of the psyche, manipulated by governments, media and culture. How do we become what we are and how is that process changing in the near future?
Ms. Miller is a webauthor, who writes for the international academic and popular press, including Phanes Press, Destiny Books (Inner Traditions International), Autonomedia, Bolero, Nexus Magazine, Dream Network, Journal of Nonlocality and Remote Mental Interactions (JNLRMI), Chaosophy Journal, DNA Monthly, Pop Occulture, Paranoia zine, Green Egg zine, and more. She serves on the Boards of Medigrace.org, and The Wisdom Center, nonprofit organizations. Print articles in Der Golem (Germany), Paranoia zine (USA) and Journal of Interdisciplinary Crossroads (India).

NEWEST SITE: August, 2006 NEUROTHEOLOGY
Neurotheology, also known as biotheology, is the study of the neural basis of spirituality. Neurotheology deals with the neurological and evolutionary basis for subjective experiences traditionally categorized as spiritual. Aldous Huxley introduced the term neurotheology in his utopian novel Island. The term is also sometimes used in a less scientific context or a philosophical context. Keywords include 'deity', 'neurophysiological bases', self-transcendence, 'spirituality' and 'mysticism'.
NEW SITE: July, 2006 CONSCIOUS ALCHEMY – NLP 2006
CONSCIOUS ALCHEMY is the art of modulating your own psychophysical chemistry for increased quality of life. We need to learn the art of living well, instead of living better. Through CONSCIOUS ALCHEMY you can retrieve the psychophysical biochemistry of your balanced and peak performance states. You can apply this to pain management as well as emotional issues or boosting your potential. By recalling vital times, you essentially regress your body chemistry to a more youthful you, and minimize the toxic chemistry of stress. This allows both body and mind to relax and recalibrate homeostasis. You can also draw on the support and encouragement of your evolving future self through imagination. Just as one incident can create trauma, one healing moment can change that instantly.
NEW SITE: June, 2006 TEMPLE OF LIVING LIGHT – QBL 2006
Re-vision qabala. We need a contemporary qabala for today, a 21st Century qabala, suitable for our "ground", our electronic environment. There is no advantage in our remaining locked up in any cultural cycle, exchanging hoary grimoires and number matrices, as if in a trance or a dream. If you go obsessively looking for something in the matrix, you are sure to find it. Discover the means of living simultaneously in all cultural modes while quite conscious. All spiritual worldviews, including science, are narratives or interpretations of the nature of reality and our nature. We can make our practice and service contemporary by drawing on each era and drawing them forward into the future.
NEW SITE: May, 2006 MY ZERO POINT: Find Your Own Zero Point
DISCOVER THE WHOLE IN YOUR SOUL. All of Nature and our own nature arises from the omnipresent centerpoint of Zero-Point Energy or vacuum fluctuation, beyond energy/matter. Our whole body flickers in and out of existence at an astounding rate, and each of those quantum recreations is an opportunity to transform utterly.
