Veterinary Zoo-psychiatrist for cats and dogs. I’ve got healing hands, and stop burning (voluntary curing for humans). I’ve been received the idea of an experimental project in 2009. I went to Peru to meet shamans in 2010 in order to recruit them, and ask “mother plant” ayahuasca if this idea was good : they were both very enthusiastic about it ! One of them even told : “Your scientists will be tired before I stop fixing the image!” LOL. Let me talk with passion about that topic, which can go even further…I’m used to oral presentation as veterinary speaker and as teacher too ; my english is fluent. I’ve been waiting for this moment (explain my project to involved searchers) for about 10 years.
Screen reconstitution of a mind-picture captured during shamanic trance
As an altered state of consciousness, shamanic trance leeds to dissociation of the body and mind. The spirit reaches a dimension of pure informations, called “other world”, where ego, space and time are annihilated. Informations appear among others as pictures. Fonctionnal RMI already great for neuroanatomic research can also reveal the volunteers’s inside world. Researchers are able to reconstitute mental images : a watched picture (Kamitani 2008), a memory (Gallant 2011), even a dream (Kamitani 2012). I want to reconstitute on screen a mental picture picked up during shamanic trance from “other world”, and locked by mental focusing. As professionals of the consciousness, shamans are ideal volunteers to focus on a picture among wandering thoughts from «other world», and change it in command. Paying deep attention to algorithms will be necessary : similar to those for watched pictures? I would suggest that new algorithms will be needed, and issued from theoretical physic or unifying theories of matter. Would this “other world” be akashick fields? Does trance place the brain in state to decrypt informations of quantum vacuum? At the same time, the exact moment of transition will be biologically explored, possibly revealing early markers for neuropathologies : anatomic brain zones and biochemical exploration (endogenous carbolins, DMT). I guess stargate lays in our mind : science is on the way to open the door, and shamans are the key !
