Full-text available
This study investigates eight case reports of spontaneously emerging, brief episodes of vivid altered states of Selfhood (ASoSs) that occurred during mental exercise in six long-term meditators by using a neurophenomenological electroencephalography (EEG) approach. In agreement with the neurophenomenological methodology, first-person reports were u...
Preprint
Recently, a three-dimensional construct model for complex experiential Selfhood has been proposed (Fingelkurts et al., 2016b,c). According to this model, three specific subnets (or modules) of the brain self-referential network (SRN) are responsible for the manifestation of three aspects/features of the subjective sense of Selfhood. Follow up multi...

Article
Full-text available
In a coherent conception of reality, physics and metaphysics should both come together to create a comprehensible worldview. This was the case in the Newtonian picture of reality which turned out to be limited at the beginning of the 20th century. The quest for a new synthesis, a more reliable picture of reality incorporating current theories and o...

The Operational Architectonics (OA) of brain-mind functioning is a theory that unifies brain and mind through nested and dynamic hierarchy of electromagnetic brain fields. Recently, it has been enriched by concepts from physics like time, space, entropy, and self-organized criticality. This review paper advances OA theory further by delving into th...

Based on the finding in novices that four months of meditation training significantly increases frontal default mode network (DMN) module/subnet synchrony while decreasing left and right posterior DMN modules synchrony, the current study tested the prediction whether experienced meditators (those who are practising meditation intensively for severa...
Article
Full-text available
Using theoretical analysis of self-consciousness concept and experimental evidence on the brain default mode network (DMN) that constitutes the neural signature of self-referential processes, we hypothesized that the anterior and posterior subnets comprising the DMN should show differences in their integrity as a function of meditation training. Fu...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
EEG-guided meditation is a practical method that combines western science and eastern philosophy. It can be used to find out objective results given by various meditation techniques as well as for designing optimal training protocols for different kinds of individuals. Meditation is an age old method to promote personal growth and spiritual purific...

This paper discusses the nature of reality on the bases of novel fundamental concepts arisen out of the Dynamic Universe theory and the period doubling mechanism presented in papers The Dynamic Universe – space as a spherically closed energy system by Tuomo Suntola [1], and On the Planck scale and properties of matter by Ari Lehto [2] in this issue...
Article
Full-text available
The therapeutic potential of meditation for physical and mental well-being is well documented, however the possibility of adverse effects warrants further discussion of the suitability of any particular meditation practice for every given participant. This concern highlights the need for a personalized approach in the meditation practice adjusted f...

The Finnish Society for Natural Philosophy celebrated its 25th anniver- sary on the 11th and 12th of November 2013 in Helsinki in an Honorary Symposium devoted to K.V. Laurikainen, the founder of the Society. This book has been compiled from presentations related to Laurikainen’s work given at the Honorary Symposium (the Honorary Symposium presenta...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The article aims to explore why Prof. K.V. Laurikainen because of quantum physics was led to the notion that consciousness and psychological phenomena cannot be excluded from the physical picture of the world, and what were the consequences of this as-sessment. It further investigates what kind of worldview Laurikainen himself defended and what he...
Article
Two well-known conceptual conundrums of quantum mechanics referred to as instantaneous action-at-a-distance and inseparable wave-particle character are tackled using the principle of least action. Since any measurement is an action, it is reasoned that the spin of a particle just as the polarization of a photon remain indetermined for the observer...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The modern conception of reality whose basic assumptions were formed during the 17th century era has not been able to provide objective foundation for mental states. Classical physics studied the objective world of material particles obeying strict deterministic laws, and in that context it is difficult to understand how free will or human consciou...

The aim of this study is to distinquish three major dimensions of the phenomenal selfhood which seem to be related to the three subnets of the brain DMN. It is based on the ability of highly experienced meditators to regulate their mental states.
