After the conference Toward a Science of Consciousness (2014), it became clear that there is a need for a conference with similar motives but from a holistic perspective. Not dominated by physical materialism, neurons or the limiting struggle to explain consciousness quantum mechanically. The vision for the new era of consciousness is to organize conferences that provide knowledge of transpersonal experiences and designed to impart knowledge of not only perception but also how to develop and take advantage of our most delicate senses.
A Multi-Perspective Presentation of Evolutionary Ideas is based on Pluralism and that is in a way contradictive to non-dualism and monism.
Methodological pluralism means that science is promoted by several (competing) methods that can be used in parallel to provide different perspectives on the same issue.
I would say that there is a clear difference between matter and mind. And that we need to explore what I call the hub that connect those two. That is also the problem actualized by David Chalmers in “The hard question”.
But most of all it is about connecting to emotion, intuition, spirituality, your soul and others.
This is demonstrated when unconditional love is present.
I call it the consciousness smokescreen.
Thank You Insomniac for your metaphor. That may be one way to put it. You can also say that TSC drowned in their own materialistic material. The rat study as a horrific example.

.. a Conference presenting and sharing results, wisdom and methods – “to improve this planet and all its children”. Well that perhaps sounds to soft but isn´t that what we want.
“Science is quickly catching up to ancient wisdom. Changing our world requires action, yes, but that action must come from a place of peace, love , cooperation and understanding. Who is to say that meditation, and directing intention towards what we would like to change is not the base of action? If you change within, manifestation without will begin to unfold, and that’s exactly what’s happening on our planet right now. If our hearts are in the right place, and our intentions are pure, we will be provided with the necessary opportunities using action to implement change. This is why the role of consciousness, and recognizing the role of consciousness is so important. It plays a large factor in creating global change on a mass scale.”
