"What Are the Noetic Sciences?" with Edgar Mitchell

"What Are the Noetic Sciences?" with Edgar Mitchell

Visionary: Edgar D. Mitchell, ScD

The word Noetic refers to "inner understanding," a kind of intuitive consciousness—direct and immediate access to knowledge beyond what's obtainable to our normal senses. Noetic Science refers to research which applies a scientific lens to the study of subjective experience and to ways that consciousness may influence the physical world. It explores the "inner cosmos" of the mind (consciousness, soul, spirit) and how it relates to the "outer cosmos". In other words, it explores how people come to know things or affect things that have no apparent rational explanation by studying such experiences and inner capacities as intuitions, psi, “after-death” communication, and personal transformations. It then explores what its findings suggest about the nature of human consciousness.

Join IONS president Dr. Marilyn Mandala Schlitz and IONS founder Edgar Mitchell as they discuss the beginnings of Noetic research from the inception of the Institute of Noetic Sciences. They discuss the concepts of Noetic Sciences and how these concepts have gradually entered mainstream consciousness over time.
