*(Berkeley Psychic Institute)

The history page of the Berkeley Psychic Institute was probably the part most relevant to my experience with their ideas. I am not familiar with what goes on there now. The history page seems to have been deleted...
You can find it in the Wayback Machine at:
http://web.archive.org/web/19970127094828/http://www.berkeleypsychic.com:80/history.html
(Looks like it was gradually de-emphasized after that 1997 capture...)
Wikipedia has a tiny bit of history, with a few links:

*(Arnold Trehub: Publications)

To understand the biological roots of conscious experience, we must first understand the importance of the following principles:
a. We are not conscious unless we have an experience of something somewhere in relation to our self.
b. Experiencing something somewhere requires an internal representation of our surrounding 3D volumetric world from an egocentric perspective.
c. We have no sensory transducers that can detect the 3D volumetric space we live in.
d. Therefore, the human brain must have an innate biological structure that can provide us with a volumetric analog of our personal world from an egocentric perspective.
