Scionics Delivers Knowledge and Fulfillment

The empirical observation of reality is necessary for the extraction of knowledge of reality, and can serve to either verify or falsify one’s hypotheses regarding reality, further accelerating the acquisition of understanding and knowledge.
Sound, logical reasoning is required to form logical, rational conclusions from the observations one makes, and to effectively extrapolate hypotheses beyond, and yet logically consistent with, that which has been observed.
The integration of empiricism and rationalism  is  empiricorationalism, and is the most powerful path to knowledge, fulfillment, and success. Empiricorationalism is the epistemological approach of science and of Scionics Philosophy.

Epistemology is the study of the acquisition of knowledge, concepts and beliefs. The more accurate one’s knowledge and beliefs are, the more effective will one be in the pursuit of one’s goals.

Mysticism is a flawed epistemological approach which entails attempts to acquire or evaluate knowledge and beliefs in ways which are contrary to logic and reality, and the concomitant belief in the unreal or irrational. It thrives on dishonesty, self-deception, and mental laziness. This leads to decreased effectiveness in life, and therefore to decreased happiness and fulfillment.

Empiricorationalism is the most powerful epistemological approach ever discovered by human beings. It extracts knowledge and understanding by integrating actual observations of reality (empiricism) with valid logical reasoning (rationalism). It thrives on honest, disciplined mental effort, and results in an ever-expanding body of knowledge and beliefs which are ever-increasingly in correspondence with reason and reality. This leads to greater effectiveness in life, and therefore to increased happiness and fulfillment.

Scionics involves the ever-widening application of empiricorationalism to all facets of life and existence. It fully embraces reason and reality, while completely rejecting all forms of mysticism, superstition, wishful and magical thinking, uncritically accepted faith, and the like. Scionics employs scientific and business-like effort to extract maximum understanding and value from every situation, with the ultimate goal of propelling humanity to a triumphant and glorious existence where even pain and death have been defeated.

Is the Scio-Society Your Society?

Individual human beings who are committed to living in accordance with reality and reason, i.e., empiricorationally, gain an extraordinary amount of personal understanding and power. When individual human beings join together in cooperation and community, for the purpose of collectively living in accordance with reason and reality, their collective understanding and power can be magnified far beyond that of each working alone.

The Scio-Society was created as an online community for debating, investigating, and furthering the empiricorational development of Scionics Philosophy.  All we ask is that members embrace rationality, reason, and the non-aggression principle. This principle asserts that no individual or group of individuals may ethically initiate fraud, force or coercion against another. It may be colloquially expressed as “Live and let live.”

The fastest and most efficient means for building a society in which peace and empiricorationalism reign supreme is to seek out others who are already oriented towards reason, reality, and non-aggression. If you are one of these rare people, we’d love to have you join us!

The Ultimate Foundation and Cause of Existence

Theism holds that the ultimate foundation and cause of all reality is a deity. This deity is often considered to have both anthropomorphic  and non-anthropomorphic characteristics. While this varies, the anthropomorphic qualities typically entail omniscience, omnibenevolence, having goals and purpose, and so on. The non-anthropomorphic qualities typically entail things like being eternal, infinite, omnipresent, and so on. A compelling empiricorational explanation for the existence of a deity does not exist. The very concept is logically contradictory.
Atheism asserts that the ultimate foundation and cause of reality does not involve a deity or any supernatural entity, and that such an entity does not exist at all. While atheists vary in their beliefs, they typically interpret or explain the universe in scientific terms. Despite the enormous power of such scientific explanations, no compelling empiricorational explanation has been put forth for explaining why anything at all exists in the first place. (A notable exception to this explanatory lack is the empiricorational view of Scionics involving mathematical psychogenesis.)
Matheism identifies the eternal, infinite, and omnipresent truths of mathematics as  the ultimate foundation and cause of all reality . Raw consciousness (not organized mind) spontaneously arises, due to its own mathematical nature, wherever the truths of mathematics are true, i.e., everywhere, via mathematical psychogenesis. The  activity of this psychonic plenum (again, not mind) serves as the foundation and source of the physical laws of the universe. Existence exists, ultimately, because mathematical truth, and hence consciousness, cannot not exist.
Scio-spirituality: The ever-widening scope of Scionics Philosophy often brings it into contact with concepts which historically have been considered the province of religion or spirituality. The term, “religion,” however, often has a quite well-deserved negative connotation amongst the non-mystical, due to its long association with countless mystical irrationalities, reality-evasions, inane rituals, worship of non-existent beings, and the like. Slightly better, perhaps, is the term, “spiritual,” but even that term has its linguistic roots in the mystical concept of the supernatural realm of spirits, so it really isn’t that much of an improvement. Human language, having developed in a world steeped in mysticism and scientific ignorance, lacks any term for referring to concepts which intersect with matters which have been traditionally classified as religious or spiritual, but which are nonetheless oriented on a strictly empiricorational, non-mystical basis. We have coined the term, “scio-spirituality,” for this purpose. Matheism and cosmic consciousness are among the central scio-spiritual concepts developed by Scionics.
Matheism shares features of both theism and atheism:
    • It shares the theistic recognition that the traditional non-anthropomorphic qualities of “god” are necessary qualities for whatever the foundation and cause of reality may be
    • It shares the atheistic rejection of the traditional anthropomorphic qualities of “god” as mystical nonsense, as well as the recognition that existence must be explained in empiricorational, scientific terms.
  • Matheism also introduces a number of unique concepts which are not held by either theism or atheism:

    • It firmly establishes that the eternal, infinite and omnipresent truths of mathematics are ontologically necessary, i.e., they cannot not exist, and that they serve as the ultimate foundation and cause of all reality.
    • It recognizes the important distinction between raw consciousness and organized mind.
    • Due to the characteristics of consciousness, including its apparent absolute irreducibility, matheism posits mathematical psychogeneis: the hypothesis that the mathematical nature of consciousness is such that it spontaneously arises anywhere that the truths of mathematics are true, i.e., everywhere.
    • This creates a plenum of cosmic consciousness, or psychonic plenum, which acts in accordance with its own hedonic and mathematical nature. (Its hedonic nature arises from the fact that a fundamental aspect of consciousness is to react to that which it is conscious of; the psychonic plenum is only aware of, and reacting to, itself.)
    • The mathematical and hedonic nature of the psychonic plenum causes it to spontaneously individuate into the eternal, infinite network of psychons, which manifest as the Planck units which serve as the matrix from which space, time, matter, energy, and all physical phenomena emerge.
    • The psychonic plenum is comprised of raw, unorganized consciousness, whereas minds are a form of organized consciousness. Not being organized into a mind, it cannot form goals or make plans. Prayers or worship directed to it have no effect, just as prayers or worship directed to the laws of physics itself have no effect.
    • The psychonic plenum is neither supernatural, nor mystical, nor pseudo-scientific woo; it is a hypothesis which integrates and explains some of the deepest and heretofore intractable scientific and philosophical issues. – it is the very matrix from which the entire natural world arises, and actually is existence itself, and all that it contains. You and everything you will ever experience is ultimately grounded in, and ultimately are, this cosmic consciousness.
Below is the gateway to Scionics: “The Protocols of Scionics,” the seminal work on Scionics Philosophy. Much effort has been expended in making Scionics Philosophy both as detailed and as clear as possible, but in order to derive the maximum benefit from Scionics you must put aside your mysticism and maintain a strict adherence to rationality and reality.  Doing so is the key to embarking upon a truly valuable and enlightening journey.

This book will probably not help you at all, although it contains the foundation of the most liberating, empowering, and wide-scope system of thought ever developed. It maintains an unshakable commitment to reason and reality in every word, delivering incredible values across the vast field of human knowledge and activity, yet most people will reject its teachings.

Why would anyone reject such powerful knowledge? It is because most human beings who have ever lived have been conditioned into loyalty to some form of mysticism, which exists in essentially infinite varieties. The degree to which mysticism is embraced is the degree to which reason and reality are rejected. If you, like so many others, are an eager victim of the very reality-denying irrational delusions, superstitions, and mysticisms which drain so much human potential and happiness from both yourself and others, then this book is not for you. You are a mystic, and while we would like to disencumber you of your pernicious mysticism, we know we can't. Only you could – but mystics, sadly, love their mysticisms.


This book is dedicated, not to many, but to the very rare few; not to the unworthy, but to the precious; not to the common, but to the extraordinary. It is dedicated to the very rare few who are able to recognize and resist mysticism in all of its harmful and even deadly forms. It is dedicated to the precious few who stand strong and often alone, against a mad mob vainly struggling to negate reality through irrational mystical bellowing. It is dedicated to the extraordinary few with the courage to walk in the light of reason and reality, despite the ignorant cries of protest and derision from the masses who love the darkness, and would have you walk in darkness too.

If this describes you, you are not alone. You are already one of us, one of the rare, precious, and extraordinary few, although you may not yet be aware of it.

If you are, this book is dedicated to you, a golden bearer of light.

Welcome home.
