In our particular case, Consciousness Technology refers to the process of creating tools that interact with our consciousness, for the purpose of self exploration and self transformation.
It is technology, because it uses an algorithmic, methodic approach, and relies on a combination of hardware and software for practical implementation .
It resembles Art, because just like Art, it aims to inspire.
It is like Psychotherapy because it offers insights into the deeper aspects of our psyche, and supports self-development and self-transformation.
It is educational from two perspectives.
One, is that every time you interact with it, you learn something new about your self.
The other is that after a relatively short time of using it, even if you were to take away the technology, you would still be able to use the algorithms which you more or less subconsciously “learned by doing” when you were exposed to it.
There are a few user requirements in order for the technology to be effective. They are:
- love of truth, desire to explore and learn more about themselves
- compassion for the self
- humbleness and openness, i.e. lack of know-it-all attitude
- not trying to achieve some material gain from it
