The investigation will show that analysis could induce an altered state of consciousness and that there is evidence that analysis could be a necessary, but not a sufficient condition for the generation of an altered state of consciousness. This examination is important since the Prasangika Madhyamika believe that it is possible to arrive at an altered state of consciousness by generating contradictions through analytical medita¬tion. This psychological investigation will thus exam¬ine what Western psychology says are the effects upon consciousness of the simultaneous copresence of mutually negating theses. It will be shown that the majority of these contradictions can be linked with the generation of altered states of consciousness. The Western psychological theories dealing with the effects of contradiction on the mind which we will examine are:

a) Cognitive dissonance developed by Festinger;
b) The theory of the double bind and paradoxical commu¬nication; and
c) Piaget's theory of equilibration .
