Welcome to The Noetic Journal website. For the first time in human history there is hope for understanding the nature of consciousness; this has created a new field of study. Several journals have already appeared to address the spectrum of developing issues. However, the scope has not been broad enough to allow unbridled development of the advancing field. Some cling rigidly to neobehaviorism or have not grasped the fact that there is more to the nature of consciousness than reduction to brain or algorithm. The Noetic Journal seeks to fill this gap by boldly addressing a complete epistemology that is not just confined to current myopic limits of scientific phenomenology. Science is inadequate to complete the task of explaining consciousness without being drastically reformulated. There is a rising controversy surrounding the limitations of the standard Copenhagen interpretation of quantum theory. It is rooted in classical explanation and the Schrodinger equation only explains half the universe. A call for a new and deeper ontological theory is being answered—one that sees beyond the phenomenology of measurement or perception into the deeper noumenon. Developing ontological models suggest that the mind can be quantized as a physical noumenon and that there is a subquantum conscious domain imbedded in a teleological cosmology. The profound success of reductionism has so far kept Science from realizing that a complete epistemology must embrace both part and whole—that science and spirituality are not mutually exclusive, but inherently complementary. This has resulted in elements of consciousness being defined as a 'hard problem.' In the history of science hard problems usually arise from a lack of understanding of the deeper physical processes. Noetics deems to provide a complete epistemology and has shown that consciousness is really an 'easy problem!' Noetics is the study of mind which utilizes the rigors of science, the logic of philosophy, and the humility and absolute truth of theology. "Physics may be the only true science, but Noetics is the only complete epistemology."
