There’s another sense in which meditation is the practice of entering trances and other altered states of consciousness, possibly associated with spiritual experiences, and while this is interesting because it may produce qualia not otherwise generated, it’s not a phenomenological technique so much as [a source of capta](https://qualiacomputing.com/2016/03/29/peaceful-qualia-the-manhattan-project-of-consciousness/).

"Capta" is the phenomenological equivalent of "data". The word doesn't have much currency, but it's main point is to make clear the broader sense of evidence phenomenological methods consider compared to scientific methods where "data" is often used to reference admissable evidence.
