La mente può trovarsi in stati diversi , il sonno ,il sogno, la trance,l'ipnosi,l'attenzione fluttuante,
l'estasi,la preghiera,la meditazione,la creatività artistica e scientifica,
l'esplorazione dello spazio e degli abissi marini,l'agonismo sportivo.

Stati della mente pubblica lavori originali o già pubblicati con il consenso degli autori, interviste e recensioni di libri e promuove eventi culturali e scientifici.
