Quantum states of mind: Ordinary perception to extraordinary perception

Subhash Sharma — Indian Institute of Plantation Management, Bangalore.

The traditional classification of the four states of consciousness – waking state, dream state, sleep state, and transcendence state – is combined three quantum states of mind – ordinary perception, extra sensory perception, and extra-ordinary perception – to create a 12-state consciousness-perception matrix. The paper elaborates on the concept and nature of the three quantum states of mind, their correspondence to the body, mind, and spirit, and considers the relation of extra-ordinary perception to cosmic consciousness.
