Time, thought, and consciousness.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


State of consciousness and reflective awareness are intrinsically related, in that the different states of consciousness entail "specific forms - including absence - of reflective awareness" (Rapaport, 1951, p. 708). Both phenomena of consciousness would also seem to bear an important relationship with various forms of thought. What has not, hitherto, been explicated is the relationship among time, thought and consciousness, and we have set ourselves the goal of doing just that. While our primary focus is on a theoretical discussion of that intersection, we also incorporate some new empirical data that we have recently gathered, looking at thought (specifically "trance logic") while swimming under water at depths in excess of 30 meters.
