Meditation can be a powerful tool for exploring consciousness. Dr. Sam Harris has discussed how meditation can help us recognize the nature of consciousness itself, beyond the contents of our experience. This recognition can lead to a sense of selflessness and centerlessness, where we recognize that there is no one who is doing the meditating. In the past, the conversation about meditation and consciousness was closely tied to the conversation about psychedelics, but these conversations have since diverged. However, both meditation and psychedelics can be valuable tools for exploring consciousness.
