This pioneering non-profit is dedicated to open-minded, rigorous, and evidence-based research on consciousness. Founded on the principles laid out in the Manifesto for Post-Materialist Science the AAPS commits to exploring consciousness beyond the confines of materialism.

In 2023, the creativity of Academy students shone through in the inaugural issue of the AAPS Student Magazine, Consciousness Unexplained, featuring a rich mix of essays, art, and poetry on the primacy of consciousness. Additionally, the Academy hosts The Archive of Scientists’ Transcendental Experiences (TASTE), an innovative online journal curated by Charles Tart. TASTE offers a platform for scientists to share their transcendental experiences, with nearly a hundred stories collected to date, both anonymous and attributed. Scientists are encouraged to enrich this growing compendium with their own transcendental narratives.
