The term "spiritual scientist" is an oxymoron to most, but at TASTE's website, http://issc-taste.org/index.shtml, you will find scientists' tales of experiencing contemplative, transcendental states that they cannot explain. Up until now, there has been little outlet for their testimonies. The Archives of Scientists' Transcendent Experience site was set as that outlet by Dr. Charles T. Tart, professor of psychology. He feels that scientists' repression and denial of these valuable experiences is unhealthy and causes a disparity between science, culture and our true nature. This site helps ease that gap, giving a place for scientists to record and share their experiences in a safe, anonymous, quality-controlled space. And, by giving public access to these records, Tart hopes to promote understanding by illustrating the humanity of scientists.
