Technologies of Mind & Spirit

Taught By: Abou Farman

From Ayahuasca to A.I. (via hypnosis, panpsychism, possession, transhumanism, extended minds, spiritual VR, and thinking forests) we will read through a range of theory, history and ethnography to grapple with the changing plasticities, virtualities and limitations of our contemporary political existence in a world where the relationships between mind and body, matter and spirit, reality and virtuality are being constantly reconfigured.
