It’s taken this long for the “update” promised in March to near fruition: I’ve since written a book that will soon be available here consisting of a narrative telling of how yoga science emerged gradually in my life starting from around age 21–“A Yoga Science Memoir.” I’ve also been working to totally revise the website …

I’ve just posted a blog that outlines how the action has shifted to the Yoga Science Foundation and what I’ve been doing since the last news item below.

Big Shift in the Action

Scott Virden Anderson Blog

I’m writing to point my readers to the website for the Yoga Science Foundation that we launched 10/1/10. This personal website – the one you are visiting now – was devoted primarily to the early stages in the development of the “Yoga Science Project” which took a big turn last year toward becoming a Yoga …

The Central Axis of AQAL Space–ITC 10 Poster

Scott Virden Anderson Uncategorised

Poster presentation for the Integral Theory Conference, July 29 – Aug 1, 2010 in Pleasanton, CA.  This poster presents a proposal for how the All Time Spectrum (aka SummaTime Scale and Anthropic Cosmological Timeline) might relate to the AQAL diagram and become the basis for “3D AQAL.”  Post-conference: I’ve added five pages to help flesh …

Science of Subtle Energy Poster

Scott Virden Anderson Uncategorised

This poster was presented at ISSSEEM 2009.  It gives an overview of how what I’m now calling the All Time Spectrum (technically a backward-looking logarithmic timeline spanning from Planck to Hubble times) provides a novel framework for a scientific consideration of the classical esoteric categories “gross, subtle, and causal.” Final Phi Sci of SE Poster.pdf

The Emerging Science of Subtle Energy

Scott Virden Anderson Uncategorised

This three page article summarizes my view of the current “state-of-the-art” in subtle energy science.  Communications Manager for the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) Matthew Gilbert contacted me in March, asking about the topic and whether I might be willing to write a short article about it–which I did with his expert editorial assistance.  It …

I’ve added an “About” section to the top menu–gives a bit of background on me, my “two lives,” and the projects I’m currently involved with.

Current Projects

Scott Virden Anderson About

There are three main ones currently: Yoga Science Foundation (website currently under development)—for which I serve as director. A Theoretical Frameworks Independent Exploration Group (TF-IEG) formed under the auspices of the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM). This is still a fledgling operation—hopefully will “take off” in the years …

Science Background

Scott Virden Anderson About

Science has been my first love from the time I was a boy, encouraged directly by my father with chemistry set, rocks and minerals, Indian arrow heads, microscope, and telescope. He had hoped to be a man of science himself, but was thwarted by the Great Depression, and Sputnik 1, launched when I was eleven, …

Yoga Background

Scott Virden Anderson About

I was in my final year as a science undergraduate at Harvard when I first met His Holiness Sri Swami Satchidananda in the Fall of 1967. I was profoundly impressed by the man and most especially by a number of striking experiences I had in his company. My initial response was a deep sense that …

Overview—My Life as “Hybrid” Prototype

Scott Virden Anderson About

 I’ve led a rather strange life over the past forty plus years—moving daily between two worlds: science and yoga. In each world I found precious few individuals with any familiarity with the other. Virtually none of my scientific colleagues over the years has known a thing about yoga—except perhaps here and there in recent decades …
