Trace Studies Institute

updated 091124

The Trace Studies Institute is dedicated to the study of Nondual Sciences.

Nondual Sciences are based on Special Systems Theory which is a new way to conceive the relation of the Western Philosophical, Scientific and Technological tradition in relation to Formal Models of nonduality that allow us to grasp the nonduality at the heart of the Western Tradition including its sciences and technology. Nonduality is normally experienced in meditative states or in states of super-conscious flow. Nondual science attempts to understand how the experience of nonduality can transform our Western Tradition including its science and technology before its globalization destroys our planet.

Nonduality means Not One! Not Two! rather than a monism or dualism. It is something else than One or Many normally glimpsed in meditative or superconscious flow states. It is the dream of many who are interested in both modern physics and other sciences and spiritual paths of various sorts to find a bridge between the two ways of exploring inwardly and outwardly. Nondual Science is the answer to this quandary.

In many cases nondual science has been practiced in traditional non-Western cultures previously. Part of the goal of the Trace Studies Institute is to study these past traces of nondual science so that it can inform our understanding of Modern Western Science by showing up its assumptions and underlying foundations that make it blind to nonduality which is unexpectedly inherent in our tradition and built into it from the beginning.
