In the beginning was the Word, and an ear that heard, and a mind that discerned and recorded…
Neuro-Apocalypse is about the veils arising in the course of cognition, and the revelations that cut them down. As the Word develops in the mouths of newborns, frameworks of thought are established in language and culture. They influence how we perceive the world, and how we internally represent it.
Looking beyond the web of words, Nemu explores savant skills emerging in autism and trans-cranial magnetic stimulation, the wit in the tics of Tourette’s and the super-strength of people in life-threatening situations. Synaesthesia and other extraordinary experiences are described in the Bible, alongside a stash of psychoactive agents and instructions on how to use them.
What can the characters and techniques of this ancient legend reveal about managing our compulsions, aspirations and inspirations, the gods at work in our heads?
Bio: Danny’s background is in the history and philosophy of medicine from the University of Manchester. He first encountered ayahuasaca when living in Japan, and followed the trail back to its source in the Brazilian Amazon where he was bitten by a sand fly causing a leishmaniasis infection. This highly aggressive bacterial parasite quickly colonised a few inches of his skin, with designs on much more, and proved to be a great teacher, providing ample opportunity to study first hand the intricacies and potencies of ayahuasca as used as a medicine within the Daime world view. He is the author of Science Revealed and Neuro-Apocalypse, both out on Psychedelic Press.
