Consider this: what if “real” enlightenment isn’t a rare thing that you can only obtain through self-imposed exile from other people? The aim of this "Practical Enlightenment" group is to promote practical and up to date tools and knowledge which deliver "enlightened consciousness". This enlightenment is looked at mainly from its “practical” 18th Century social, cultural and civilisation enriching aspects where the expression of creativity and original invention is exclusively dependent on some degree of holistic thinking which is often synonymous with personal and group enlightened awareness.The main purpose is to quantify in a methodical manner the how to get there and efficacy of such states including the use of tehnology. If you try to dissect a little bit the concept ,the first logical ,reductionist,mechanical thought that comes to mind is that everything is happening in the brain,in fact it is an altered state of conciousness that has many psychological,physiological and neurological ramifications. So,if you interested in combining the old practices with new aproaches of neurosciences,learning something different and participate to a "study" about enlightement,you are more than welmome!!
