The mission of the LAB is the furthering of competences and knowledge that can maximize 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 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, dedicated to both inner (self) and "outer" research (according to the standard academic approach), with texts mainly in Italian and some also available in English, or only in English.
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, mainly in Italian, on the topic of all round research (both inner and outer).
