About the event

Psychedelics & Tekhne: Modifying the Phenomenology of Altered States of Consciousness

Tekhne, or techne, is derived from the Greek term technê, meaning art, craft, technique, or skill.

In this talk and Q&A, Researcher and Cyberdelic Society Co-founder Carl H Smith will discuss our capacity to  intentionally  alter the phenomenology of altered states of consciousness using  different technologies such as sound, immersive media and machine  learning.

Some of the key talk discussion points will include include:

  • How is the relationship between psychedelics and tekhne evolving?
  • How much does an FMRI scan influence the phenomenology of an intravenous nnDMT experience?
  • What are the limitations and consequences of technologies currently being used to measure the effects of psychedelics?
  • Following  from the recent extended-DMT Imperial College London trials, could  extending the duration of short-acting psychedelics become a new trend?
  • How will machine learning affect drug discovery and will we start tripping the trip of the machine?

This  talk will also include a participant report from the nnDMTX (Extended  State) study at Imperial College London. The continuous infusion of the  entheogen arguably turns this medicine into a new form of technology.
