There are several ways we can know the world around us. Science focuses on external observation and is grounded in objective evaluation, measurement, and experimentation. But another way of knowing is subjective or internal, including gut feelings, intuition, and hunches—the way you know you love your children, for example, or experiences you have that cannot be explained or proven “rationally” but feel absolutely real. This way of knowing is what we call noetics.



The noetic sciences apply a scientific lens to the study of subjective experience and to ways that consciousness may influence the physical world and aims at probing the far reaches of human consciousness using the tools and techniques of science.
