Many societies of the 21st century have matured beyond the unfounded fears and superstitions that may have limited the perspective of their ancestors. As more people around the world have better access to education, ideas, information and the world at large than ever before, they have become increasingly resistant to traditions belonging to bygone eras and are more questioning, critical, discerning and independent in their thinking.
Consistent with this general shift towards transparency, it is possible today to study the out-of-body experience within formal, structured, academic environments. In Brazil in 1989, for example, a new science, conscientiology, was proposed for the study of consciousness (individual essence, soul or spirit) with rationality and logic, free of all dogma, rituals and mysticism. This relatively new science takes into account all the attributes of the consciousness, its phenomena (including the out-of-body experience), and the fact that it has multiple lives and can manifest both inside and outside the physical body.
The main premise of conscientiology is participatory research. In other words, researchers, students and all interested individuals are encouraged to have their own experiences and verify the true nature of their existence for themselves by using the OOBE as their main research tool.
The science of projectiology is a sub-discipline of conscientiology, exclusively dedicated to the investigation of the out-of-body experience and related phenomena. More >>include "do.php"; ?>
