Scionics Philosophy

The Scionics Project was not initiated with the intention of creating any sort of religion at all. The purpose of Scionics was to create a fully-integrated, rational and reality-based philosophy. It eventually became apparent, however, that Buddhism (despite all sorts of mysticisms which have become associated with it over the centuries) has a rock-solid, non-mystical core set of beliefs and practices; furthermore, it also became apparent that this non-mystical core was completely consistent with Scionics Philosophy. Scio-Buddhism is the integration of this non-mystical core of Buddhism with the completely rational and reality-based Scionics Philosophy. Ultimately, all of Scio-Buddhism can be understood in terms of Scionics Philosophy.

The Noble Eightfold Path

The noble eightfold path consists of eight interconnected elements or practices which lead to the attainment of nirvana. These eight can be arranged into three groups: “noble wisdom,” “noble conduct,” and “noble concentration.” In addition to the eight elements of practice there are also two “acquired” elements which result from following the noble eightfold path.
