The mission of the LAB is the furthering of a knowledge that can maximize the human potential, starting from an evolutionary and multidimensional perspective. Its vision is pluralist, and encourages the crossing and integration of the different methods of investigation, like that of the modern scientific research, mostly carried out in the third person, and of the more traditional inner research (self-research), typically conducted in the first and second person. In pursuit of its mission, the LAB sponsors fundamental research programs, particularly in physics and consciousness studies, the broad dissemination of educational texts, the organization of seminars, courses, conferences, and individual meetings. It also publishes the open access journal AutoRicerca, in Italian (some volumes are also available in English), entirely devoted to the theme of self-research.
AutoRicerca is the (open access) journal of the LAB - Laboratorio di Autoricerca di Base (Laboratory of Basic Self-Research). Its mission is to publish writings of value, in Italian, on the topic of inner research.
