An altered state of consciousness (ASC), also called altered state of mind or mind alteration, is any condition which is significantly different from a normal waking , the expression was in use in relation to hypnosis, though there is an ongoing debate as to whether hypnosis is to be identified as an ASC according to its modern definition.   Thomas Nagel in his essay does not define consciousness per se, but rather gives numerous properties of consciousness. The most important property by far for his argument, is that if and only if an organism is conscious, by having conscious mental states, there exists also a subjective character of experience for that organism.

Dr. Richard Murrice Bucke (), a friend of Walt Whitman, first coined this term is his book, Cosmic Consciousness, written more than years ago. He defined it as a “Divine Illumination”, a state of grace, the next step in the evolution of humanity. Ajahn Chah invited us to rest in consciousness and allow every experience in a fearless way. To rest in consciousness is the opposite of contraction and fear. When we rest in consciousness we become unafraid of the changing conditions of life. In the monastery Ajahn Chah would point us back to rest in the pure knowing, consciousness itself.

Rather, your consciousness is using the brain as a processing device, moving the molecules where they are needed in order to create the sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell of the world. The old bugbear about subjectivity being too vague, personal, and unreliable in comparison to the objectivity of facts and data needs to be squashed.

Dreaming, other sleep-related hallucinations, and changes in experience caused by hypnotic suggestions are among the most typical ASCs. Is it possible to venture beyond daily living and experience heightened states of awareness.
