Aims of this work

o Breaking a series of taboos about many experiences considered impossible or simple suggestions and/or hallucinations caused by alterations of the neurological or psychological functioning.

o To know these experiences with reference to the evidence obtained from scientific research conducted at international level and by our Science of Consciousness Research Group of the Department of General Psychology of the University of Padua, Italy in collaboration with EvanLab of Florence, Italy, directed by Luciano Pederzoli.

o For those who experience one or more of these experiences, do not feel particularly different, let alone mentally dysfunctional and be able to talk about them without fear.

o For those who have not yet experienced them, do not be afraid, but know them to help those who are experiencing them.

o For all of us, as a minimum, to continue to discuss a series of phenomena with ‘knowledge of the facts’ and not with prejudices or preconceptions like "I believe / I do not believe".
