... because of the tremor there is a new layer of **complexity** to the ripple patterns. The tremor adds energy to the system, and as it does the standing waves in the pond become more chaotic. Instead of simple coherent ripple patterns, you begin to see...

Reviews for Psychedelic Information Theory

... meme and whether they can demonstrate increased **complexity**. Underlying the theory, PIT provides us with a serious, and in many respects successful, recalibration of the different psychedelic knowledge bases. In great respect to the author, I believ...

... As consciousness moves from linear to nonlinear **complexity**, information is spontaneously generated in the human mind with the recursive self-similarity of a fractal or cellular automaton. PIT spells out the underlying pharmacological and perceptual...

... setting; that these states increase in nonlinear **complexity** in response to dose of hallucinogen, duration of effect, and strength of sensory stimulation; and that the depth or complexity of psychedelic nonlinear states can be controlled through pitc...

5-HT2A Agonism and Multisensory Binding

... suffuses the entire body, builds in strength and **complexity**, and culminates in a cathartic multisensory release of highly charged transformative content. At the sensory level glutamate flooding saturates perception. At the emotional level adrenal re...

In mathematics, a nonlinear system is a system which is not linear, that is, a system which does not satisfy the superposition principle, or whose output is not proportional to its input. Less technically, a nonlinear system is any problem where the ...

Information Genesis and Complexity

... the phenomenon of increasing information **complexity** in the universe through time. In order to graph the emergence of novelty through time, McKenna created an occult formula based on the hexagrams of the I Ching and charted a jagged line that...

... assumes that the study of nonlinear systems and **complexity** has always been a fundamental part of shamanism and sorcery.
Synchronicity Magic and Probability Collapse
Subjects in a destabilized nonlinear state often report enhanced sensations of n...

Physical Shamanism and Shamanic Therapy

... states of highly organized nonlinear feedback **complexity** in both neural and cellular signaling pathways. By employing these techniques under the influence of psychedelics the shaman can entrain the biological function of the patient all the way d...

What is Nonlinear Hallucination?

... systems can be defined in terms of the **complexity** of output in proportion to input. The output of changes in a linear system are simple and can be modeled with a line on a graph. In contrast the results of a nonlinear system are chaotic an...

... simultaneous multi-frame analysis and increased **complexity** of visual comprehension. Subverting or enhancing the functional limits of visual frame aliasing may be an indication of expanded consciousness.
Visual Frame Resolution
Human visual resolu...

... frame splits or bifurcates in exponential **complexity**. This recursive pattern of exponentially receding complexity is the formal mathematical definition of a nonlinear system.
[fig]5;1[/fig]Frame stacking is considered to be progressive wit...

An Overview of Physical Shamanism

... information processing system generating **complexity** over time based on a simple repetitive algorithm, such as a fractal (Fig 4) or a cellular automata (Fig 5). Fractals or cellular automata are perhaps the best visual metaphors for the spont...

... and Reintegration. An exploration of **complexity** based on simple mathematical and programmatic rules....

Accounts of geometric meshwork or marching rows of repeating archetypal forms are taken from subjective reports of psychedelic intoxication....

... interference patterns approaching fractal **complexity**. (Fig. 5) It can be assumed there is a saturation of signaling molecules that builds up at the site of synaptic interruption that persists for some period of time following each interrupt. ...

Pre-semantically defined temporal windows for cognitive processing

... of some tens of milliseconds, and is used for **complexity** reduction of temporally and spatially distributed neuronal activities. Experimental evidence comes from studies on temporal-order threshold, choice reaction time, single-cell activities, ev...

... to include novel states of nonlinear **complexity**. These states of nonlinear complexity are the origin of hallucination, and the source of all psychedelic information that has influenced human mythology, religion, art, and culture.

What is Psychedelic Information Theory?

... in order to extrapolate the limits and **complexity** of information arising in human altered states of consciousness.
The foundation of PIT lies in novelty theory, the study of increasing complexity of information over time. Novelty theory e...

Chaotic fingerprints and space-time labyrinths

Video Feedback is a great example of real-time evolving self-organising systems near the edge of chaos. With a relatively simple camera-monitor/TV set-up you can produce a vast spectrum of time-based fractal species, many of which bare great similari...
