philosophy of science
LOTA is a philosophy
of science, a unifying logical synthesis of current
thoughts and ideas aimed at understanding the deeper
meaning of reality. It provides an open logical
framework through which the relationships of evolution,
creation, mind, matter, energy and consciousness become
visible. It is a holistic view on the nature of personal
reality and it points to vast potentials of the human
The LOTA philosophy of
science emerged after decades of disappointments with
traditional positivist methods of science, since these
"classical ways" fail to give logical backing for
important discoveries in psychology, learning and
personal growth. The LOTA philosophy of science provides
this framework, embracing the old and the new.
philosophy of science is the outcome of a systems based
method of synthesis, backed by verification with existing scientific theories from a wide range of
For those acquainted with the concepts of LOTA, the validity is derived from the totality of their own life experiences, personal and professional. Including an enhanced understanding of the connections between existing scientific theories. Moreover, first published in 1996, it withstands the test of time and remains unchallenged in its logic and supporting evidence.
LOTA points to vast untapped potentials of our minds. The processes by which we give form to our reality through our habitual thoughts, beliefs and feelings are better understood. We become aware of new powerful ways to give direction to our lives, among others, from an improved understanding of the nature and function of the subconscious mind.
For professional endeavors, LOTA is a source for innovation and problem solving, with the following fields showing greatest affinity and interest (at this early stage):
learning & education, psychology, consciousness research, human resource development, management development, personal peak performance, inter discipline studies , new energy sources, as well as non-linear dynamic systems research (chaos, complexity, etc).Evolving from the LOTA philosophy of science are closely interconnected theories, such as:
Cornel Slenters was born 1939 in s'Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
Following thirty years of international business experience with Hewlett-Packard, Transitron, IBM and Philips, he started his own training & management consulting in 1993 under the name Slenters Action Learning. Prior, he was European training director for Hewlett-Packard, stationed in Geneva.
His formal education spans Europe and the USA, including an advanced engineering degree in Systems Design & Computer Science from Northeastern University, Boston.
In 1995, after discovering an organizing principle which seemed significant yet unknown, he worked full time on the exploration of this new insight. This has led to the development of the LOTA Philosophy of Science and its derivative theories. These are described in his book, "Breakthrough, the Origins of Mind, Space and Time".
Up to his recent
retirement as principal of SLENTERS Action Learning, he
delivered a range of leadership development, management
development, personal development and innovation
training programs. Including courses for Organizational
Behavior, Creative Achievement, Personal Peak
Performance and Human Resource Management - MBA and
Executive MBA programs - at international business
schools in the Swiss Geneva region.
The LOTA principles
provided the basis for many innovative techniques
introduced in these courses, from which many students
Consequently, he has
decided to release this material via the internet, free
of charge, during his retirement.
The first phase in this effort is the release of Breakthrough, the Origins of Mind, Space and Time in the form of an ebook edition, free of charge, available to you via this link.
He is an elected member to the Phi Beta Delta Honor Society of International Scholars.
He lives with his
family in Switzerland.
