    I think I've posted this link on spacecollective a few times...

    thanks for the heads up on something more in depth!

    Yes, yes, I can tell you that everyone with interest in psychedelic experiences posted this article in various forums... Bresloff increased my interest in Salt Lake City, because he lives there. It sounds like a fun place to be in: the largest organ in the world, everyone is religious, and the high altitude. I think that I would suffer sunburns at such a high altitude though.

    I don't like their theory because it is too flat for me. I imagine that the problems on the lattice are not much better than the simulations of cellular automatons. The real problem is information processing in the state of psychedelic instability:

    1. pattern recognition
    2. reinforcement or feedback
    3. driving centers of instability
