Who are we? Where do we come from? What is the nature and purpose of physical life?
The popular scientific view is that all of reality is essentially physical and mechanical, and that consciousness is a simple product of brain activity. However, many individuals have firsthand experiences indicating that there is ‘more to life’ than just the physical. Moreover, there is diverse scientific data confirming that we are more than just physical.
IAC studies and practices consciousness science. In focusing on consciousness, we study various phenomena such as subtle energy, life before birth and after death, and the out-of-body experience. As a science, we conduct our studies according to scientific principles, including rationality, replicability, coherence, and consensus. And ultimately, none of our models or theories are fully final or complete. Like all good science, our ideas are positioned at the frontier of knowledge with an openness to being refined, refuted, and discussed.
The basis of consciousness science is the consciential paradigm. Key aspects of this consciousness-centered paradigm are:
- Reality is composed of matter, energy, and consciousness. Consciousness is the driver of energy.
- In addition to physical reality, there are other persistent realities (or ‘dimensions’) of a subtler, non-physical character.
- Every living physical being is actually a consciousness (soul, essence) utilizing a temporary physical body. Consciousness per se does not seem to die.
- During physical life, we can have partial experiences of
non-physical reality by developing sensitivity and proficiency with our
- During physical life, we can have fuller experiences of non-physical
reality by having an out-of-body experience while the physical body is
The IAC Research Campus provides a unique combination of optimized physical infrastructure and a specially cultivated energetic atmosphere (energetic field), resulting in the ideal environment for:
- Individuals wishing to have parapsychic/psi experiences and increasing their self-awareness (especially via the self-research laboratories)
- Major scientific symposia and conferences
- Major educational events and workshops.
A key feature of the 250,000 m2 (62 acres) complex is its innovative, leading-edge set of consciential laboratories, each designed to provide an ideal environment for self-experimentation and research on a specific theme. These laboratories engage the individual as both the researcher and the object of study as they offer prime conditions for the participant to observe and analyze their personal psychic experiences.
The IAC Campus supports the establishment of two condominiums for resident researchers, scholars, and volunteers. These condominiums contribute to the growing, active, and developing campus community.
As part of its development policies, the IAC campus incorporates sustainable ecological practices. The campus staff currently undertakes projects related to the maintenance, re-establishment and improvement of flora, fauna and natural resources while concurrently investing in new energetically efficient technologies and constructions. Systems that are already installed for the sustainability of the area include the generation of electrical energy through photovoltaic panels, solar heating, smart irrigation, composting, waste recycling, rain water harvesting and storage through cisterns (including a cistern with 540 thousand liters of capacity).
TEDx on how transformative experiences can have positive effects in our lives
IAC's Nanci Trivellato, MSc discusses how extraordinary altered states of consciousness have challenged her perception of reality and led her to apply the scientific spirit to study curious and potentially transformative phenomena like out-of-body experience, the vibrational state, psi phenomena. Whatever one may think of these experiences, they can have a positive effect on those who experience them and those who interact with them. That alone is a good enough reason to take a closer look.
