Welcome to Meru Foundation's Meeting Tent

Released by NOVA Publishing in July 2010

Editor: Richard L. Amoroso (Noetic Advanced Studies Inst., Oakland, CA, USA)

Book Description:
The noetic model is the first theory of any kind to explain qualia in physical terms. The formal delineation of the life principle or élan vital explains not only the origin of self-organization in living systems, providing the basis for the first comprehensive dualist theory, but also is what makes the model empirically testable allowing this volume to make history. The floodgates are about to open to almost unimaginable advances in the field of consciousness studies. This new book introduces a comprehensive empirically testable model of dualism-interactionism to legitimize the interactionist model at a level tantamount to any other avenue of epistemological investigation.
