    Welcome to PF!

    As a starter, PF doesn't discuss these kinds of topics in general. We specialize in students working through mainstream STEM courses with questions on science and math.

    For Noetic Science: No its not a science, its more of an alternative philosophy of mind:

    Noetic Science is pseudoscience promoted by Dan Brown in The Lost Symbol. Give no consideration to it.

    It's the "institute" that promotes it. Notice they have a nice big link to their store on their website. Lots of money to be made in junk science.

    Everyone can start their own institute to promote whatever they want.

    As has been explained, it's not scientifically valid and is against our policy to discuss.
