Mondo 2000 - .:ESRA On-Line - Bernard WERBER:. Psychonautics. Psychonautics (from the Greek ψυχή (psychē "soul/spirit/mind") and ναύτης (naútēs "sailor/navigator")—a sailor of the mind/soul)[1] refers both to a methodology for describing and explaining the subjective effects of altered states of consciousness, including those induced by meditation or mind-altering substances, and to a research paradigm in which the researcher voluntarily immerses himself or herself into an altered mental state in order to explore the accompanying experiences.[2] The term has been applied diversely, to cover all activities by which altered states are induced and utilized for spiritual purposes or the exploration of the human condition, including shamanism, lamas of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition,[3] sensory deprivation,[1] and archaic/modern drug users who use entheogenic substances in order to gain deeper insights and spiritual experiences.[4] A person who uses altered states for such exploration is known as a psychonaut.

El fundamento de la psiconáutica

A partir de Aristóteles, y posteriormente y más profundamente a partir de Descartes, la filosofía y la ciencia occidental se han sustentado en la idea de que el sujeto, tal como es, está en condiciones de obtener el conocimiento total y verdadero de la realidad a partir de lo que es capaz de percibir y analizar, sin necesidad de que se deba operar en su percepción o en su consciencia transformación alguna. Esto ha sido el modo natural de concebir el conocimiento para la cultura occidental, al menos hasta el surgimiento de los distintas formas de relativismo posmoderno, desde la epistemología hasta la teoría lingüística, en las que todo lo que era denominado “verdad” para la modernidad comenzó a perder valor ontológico o sentido en sí mismo.

By 2010, the psych-meds business had ballooned to $70 billion and the once admired profession of Freud and Jung had been reduced to a drug delivery method.

Le goût du psyché

Il décrit ainsi le Sov-Gott Rose Marie du Pärson Sound suédois de Bo Anders Persson : «En trois mouvements, le morceau décrit la stase du néant, puis la mise en branle d’une résonance cosmique et enfin le culte rendu par les hommes à cette entité, onde de vie primordiale qu’exalte toute la musique du groupe.» Peu importe le pied de la lettre : c’est l’ampleur qui compte. Le psychédélisme n’a jamais été un folklore de hippies défoncés chantant la paix et l’amour, même si l’image a été bombardée par les médias mainstream pour atténuer la force de frappe du genre. La présente anthologie est, par bien des façons, une sorte d’ovni.

Psychedelics As Tools For Spirituality

In a YouTube video, freestyler Jason Silva eloquently discusses the potential for exploration of consciousness that psychedelics offer. In fluid, poetic detail complete with trippy music and visual effects, he explores the psychedelic experience, and spiritual realization. He uses Leary quotes and personal observations to show how, often, the two go hand in hand.

Cynefin /ˈkʌnɨvɪn/ is a Welsh word, which is commonly translated into English as 'habitat' or 'place', although this fails to convey its full meaning. The term was chosen by the Welsh scholar Dave Snowden to describe a perspective on the evolutionary nature of complex systems, including their inherent uncertainty ("The Cynefin framework"). The name serves as a reminder that all human interactions are strongly influenced and frequently determined by our experiences, both through the direct influence of personal experience, as well as through collective experience, such as stories or music. The framework provides a typology of contexts that guides what sort of explanations or solutions might apply.

It draws on research into complex adaptive systems theory, cognitive science, anthropology, and narrative patterns, as well as evolutionary psychology, to describe problems, situations, and systems.

In fact, you probably learned about it for the first time very recently.

If not, then you just might hear about it again very soon. Baader-Meinhof is the phenomenon where one happens upon some obscure piece of information—often an unfamiliar word or name—and soon afterwards encounters the same subject again, often repeatedly. Anytime the phrase “That’s so weird, I just heard about that the other day” would be appropriate, the utterer is hip-deep in Baader-Meinhof.

Most people seem to have experienced the phenomenon at least a few times in their lives, and many people encounter it with such regularity that they anticipate it upon the introduction of new information. Whole Systems. The Long Count. Visual arts experimentations.
