Summary

Synthesizes scientific research on extraordinary experience occurring under the influence of psychedelics, including neuroscientific, psychological, parapsychological, anthropological, and transpersonal perspectives.

What is the evidence that psi experiences are experienced more frequently in non-ordinary states of consciousness? David Luke addresses this question, which is beyond the scope of materialist science, with a synthesis of scientific research on anomalous experiences occurring under the influence of psychedelics from the perspective of neuroscience, psychology, parapsychology, anthropology, and transpersonal studies. This is a comprehensive exploration of chemically mediated extra ordinary human experiences, including synesthesia, extra-dimensional percepts, out-of-body-experiences, near-death experiences, entity encounter experiences, sleep paralysis, mediumship, clairvoyance, telepathy, and precognition. The author explores the implications for our understanding of consciousness and areas for further research.

“In a remarkable interdisciplinary review of the history of LSD-type drugs and reported paranormal experiences, Luke charts the implications for medicine, anthropology, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, religion, mediumship, interspecies communication, anomalous psychology, and the humanities.” — CHOICE

Dr. David Luke is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Greenwich and has studied techniques of consciousness alteration from South America to India, from the perspective of scientists, shamans, and Shivaites.
