 there is one thing that i can caution against: permitting the
victorian-era foundations on which science is based: the total and
absolute rejection of "that which may be experienced" as being
legitimate criteria for scientific enquiry and reasoning.

 the victorians championed "total objectivity" and it's caused an...
unbelievable amount of damage to the western psyche, as the success of
science in expanding the british empire (and others) was correlated
with supporting the "objective methodology".

 if that isn't clear: try writing and submitting a paper to a
peer-reviewed journal about the topic of consciousness in the human
mind, and see how far it gets.
