Welcome to Resource for Life

This is the first of 7 websites that explore consciousness and the experience of being alive.

This first website offers a big picture perspective of what the complete network of websites attempts to describe.

Consciousness is the experience of being alive. It shapes the reality we experience. But our reality may not be all that what we think it is.

Consciousness is not well understood in our society. Most of us do not experience the full range of what consciousness has to offer. This project offers a big-picture perspective and highlights what we are missing.

The other six websites each explore a major area of our subject. The network as a whole gives us a comprehensive exploration of consciousness and the human experience. This first website offers an introduction and overview of this larger project.
