Comparison of Subjective and Objective Experiences (image) Maharishi University of Management Share Print E-Mail Caption This figure, a 2 X 2 table, compares subjective and objective experiences during waking, sleeping, dreaming, and pure consciousness. As seen in this table, waking state contains a sense of self and mental content -- thoughts and perceptions. In contrast, during pure consciousness (Transcendental Consciousness) there is only Self-awareness, without any sense of time, space, and body awareness.
