Our friend James Kent will be presenting at MAPS conference in San Jose this week. He is also releasing the final version of 'Psychedelic Information Theory' online. I know this has been in the works for a long time and I am excited to read it. For those of you who are not familiar with his work. James is a writer and programmer living in Seattle, Washington. He is the former Editor of Psychedelic Illuminations Magazine and the former Publisher of Trip Magazine. He currently edits DoseNation.com the extensive multi-user weblog for drug news, culture, and humor, and is a regular contributor to H+ magazine.
Psychedelic Information Theory: Shamanism in the Age of Reason is an examination of the nonlinear dynamics of hallucination and altered states of consciousness. By deconstructing the systems of human perception and memory Psychedelic Information Theory quantifies the limits of psychedelic perception and describes the methods by which psychedelics alter consciousness, create new information, and affect human culture. By presenting these methods in physical terms Psychedelic Information Theory offers a rational and objective model for shamanic transformation and psychedelic therapy in modern clinical practice. Written by James L. Kent.
