Program -2012

February 17th-March 2nd 2012

The fourth online consciousness conference is now officially closed. You can still see all conference materials and discussion by clicking on the title of the session you want to view but no new comments will be allowed.

We had a record breaking conference this year with over 16,000 hits during the two weeks of the conference (roughly 37% increase from CO1) and 343 total comments in the sessions (roughly 35% increase from CO1). Comments in the feedback session will stay open; both conscious and unconscious thoughts welcome! 🙂

Conference Feedback: Before you leave I would appreciate any feedback from conference goers. Simply click here!
