Plato: Knowledge=True Justified Belief (rational justification, as opposed to “True Belief,” which need not be justfied)
Science: Knowledge = experimental justification

Four components of knowledge

  1. perceptual/biological
  2. conceptual/worldview
  3. Psychological/social
  4. consciousness

psychology: + – o (plus/minus/neutral)

self/not self

(self/not-self) = (in-group altruism/out-group hostility)

negative emotions @ “minus”:
fear
anger
anxiety
depression
positive emotions @ “plus”:
love
kindness
calm
joy

monotheistic religions all based upon “visionary” states of consciousness

OSC: ordinary state of consciousness
VSC: visionary state of consciousness
PCE: Pure consciousness experience: “perfect” state of consciousness
DMS: dualistic mystical states (the diminishment of the self)
