TEDx meet Noumenautics: Peter Sjöstedt-H to speak on understanding consciousness through psychedelics

We’re excited to announce a forthcoming TEDx talk from the Anglo-Scandinavian philosopher of mind and Noumenautics author Peter Sjöstedt-H in Truro, Cornwall on 26 October 2018.

Joining security expert James Lyne, conservationalist Sacha Dench, spacecraft engineer Lucy Edge, and researchers of the wonder material graphene, Dr Dimitar Dimov and Professor Monica Craciun, Peter will be sharing discoveries from his pioneering voyages into the outer reaches of the metaphysical mindscapes. Expect new insights into the hidden psychedelic history of philosophy; from Plato, to Proclus, to Cornwall’s own ‘chemical philosopher’ Humphry Davy, to James, Nietzsche, Sartre, and innumerable others.

Psychedelics are whirring into increasing prominence in our collective consciousnesas therapeutic tools. A vast and diversifying body or research is accumulating on the potential of LSD, psilocybin, ketamine and many others to treat anxiety, depression and PTSD; illnesses that have been stitched into the history of humanity for millenia.

Peter invites us, in his forthcoming TedX talk, to reckon with treasures from forefront of an equally rapidly evolving field: human understanding of our relationship to the universe around us. A chance to discover the metaphysicality of life through the prism of the psychedelic experience, delving into its implications for mysticism, sentience and the mind-matter relationship.

Tickets are £50 each (plus an admin fee of £3) and are available from http://tedxtruro.com/the-event/
