Am I Dreaming? : The Science of Altered States, from Psychedelics to Virtual Reality, and Beyond Paperback / softback
'Wonderful' Philosophy Now__________________________When a computer goes wrong, we are told to turn it off and on again.
In Am I Dreaming?, science journalist James Kingsland reveals how the human brain is remarkably similar.
By rebooting our hard-wired patterns of thinking - through so-called 'altered states of consciousness' - we can gain new perspectives on ourselves and the world around us. From shamans in Peru to tech workers in Silicon Valley, Kingsland takes us on a dazzling tour of lucid dreams, mindfulness, hypnotic trances, virtual reality and drug-induced hallucinations.
A startling exploration of perception and consciousness, this is also a provocative argument for using altered states to boost our mental health. 'Read this book and take part in one of the greatest intellectual adventures of all time.'Professor J.
