The science of conscientiology was introduced to the general public in 1981 by the researcher Waldo Vieira, MD. In 1986, with the publication of the first edition of the treaty Projectiology – A Panorama of Experiences of the Consciousness outside the Human Body, written by Vieira, the categorical proposition of the science conscientiology was provided.

It is a comprehensive study of the consciousness, with all its bodies, lives, experiences, times and places of life, performed by the consciousness through its consciential attributes, vehicles of manifestation (holosoma) and multidimensional consciential phenomena.

The term consciousness derives from the Latin language, conscientia, “knowledge of something common to many people; knowledge; consciousness; intimate sense “, and this derives from the verb conscire “having knowledge of”.

Consciousness is one of the basic elements of the universe and is constantly evolving through the accumulation of multidimensional and multiexistential experiences.

Consciousness is our highest reality; it is us, more than energy and matter. Among other terms, it is known as soul, ego, personality, spirit, individuality, person, being or subject.

All findings, hypotheses and theories of conscientiology form a set of leading edge relative truths (verpons), which refers to more important new realities and priorities to be deepened, discussed and also refuted.

Conscientiology uses a new terminology (neologisms) in order to be more specific.

The neologism is a word, phrase, compound expression or new construction created in its own language or adapted from another – a cognitive recycling – penetrating the language and trying to steady itself. (Homo sapiens pacificus, p.124)

According to Berger (Work. pap Linguistic, 12 (1): 53-62, Florianópolis, Jan. Jun 2011) considering ineffective existing words in the language to name the conceptual universe of Conscientiology, Vieira (1999) dedicates a session of one of his founding works to the discussion on the formation of terminology within this new science. In this, the author asks: “How can we formulate the novelty of our findings and our conceptions without recourse to new terms?” (1999, p.47). Thus, the author argues that:

[…] In order to avoid confusions, and aiming at the formation of a practical and functional vocabulary to meet the occurrences that require rationalization and organization, with a general, systematic or a nomenclature of its own, it was necessary to invent new words (VIEIRA, 1999 , p. 47).”

Below is the link to the glossary of conscientiology:

There are 70 areas (second version), or scientific specialties within the broad universe of conscientiological research with its main scientific subfields. For more information visit the link:


Projectiology is the specialty which reveals the practical character of conscientiology, studying the action of the consciousness (soul, ego, spirit, person, personality) which operates away from a state of restriction from the physical brain and the entire biological body.

The conscious projection, also known as astral travel, out-of-body experience, astral flight, among others, can be experienced by any consciousness independent of age, gender, race, culture, background or belief.

The projective experience is a natural, physiological condition generated by the separation of the vehicles of manifestation of consciousness (holosoma) and produced by changing the vibrational frequency of these vehicles.
