Buddhist Geeks 225: The End of Self-Referencing (Jeffrey Martin)

This is part two of the interview Vince conducted with Jeffrey Martin earlier this month - I spaced out in posting it. A link to part one is included in the post.

Buddhist Geeks 225: The End of Self-Referencing

BG 225: The End of Self-Referencing

18. Jul, 2011 by Jeffery Martin

Episode Description:

We’re joined again by Harvard trained social scientist Dr. Jeffery Martin. As a conclusion to our discussion on the initial findings on his research into “non-symbolic consciousness” Jeffery goes into the further reaches of his research participants. He speaks about the tendency for people on the higher range of his model to have a diminished sense of self-referential thoughts, emotions, and will, even to the point of being completely gone. Jeffery also covers some of the biases in his research pool, as well as the way that traditions might serve to both support and then also hinder people’s movement into non-symbolic consciousness.

This is part 2 of a two-part series. Listen to part 1, The Study of Non-Symbolic Consciousness.
