Introduction to Hyponoetics
From the web site: "Hyponoetics does not try to resolve philosophical problems by providing just another theory. Hyponoetics is a meta-philosophy that attempts to establish a generic, comprehensive frame of reference for any point of view or theory of Mind. Truth or facticity is not something given a priori, but something constituted through our Individual Mind and through Hyponoesis. Hyponoesis is pure potentiality out of which our Individual Mind actualizes or co-creates the world we experience through sense perception. This is not a solipsistic view, though, because the intrinsic structure of our Mind determines what forms we actualize out of Hyponoesis. They do not depend on our arbitrary will. This link points to essays that attempt to elaborate and explain the key features of Hyponoetics in greater detail."
