Beyond Psychedelics in partnership with The Cyberdelic Society are bringing to you a jam-packed showcase with cyberdelic experiences, perceptual technologies, art installations and more. This showcase will present and review different projects, with the intention to open an intersubjective portal into the building of deeper insights into the importance of consciousness hacking, transformative experiences and transcendence technologies for the future of human flourishing through a healthy relationship between humans and technology.

Virtual Awakening is a virtual educational platform which focuses on hosting, creating and engineering therapeutic, inspirational, and cognitive expanding content and contexts within XR Technologies.
Virtual Awakening provides immersive methods of self-transformation that can amplify our ontological and ecological awareness, widening our capacity for introspection, and ultimately, provide humanity a vast collection of conscious immersive media to empower the evolution of consciousness.
Cyber Rabbit is an emerging decentralized Mixed Reality studio that explores the role of technology in our collective evolution. Organazation’s vision is to allow the creative potential of the individuals flourish through and plant wonder seeds in people’s curiosities to explore the magic and mystery of our reality by using the potential of the new MR technologies in empowering the imagination through cyber space.
There is a common belief underlying many cultures: that we are surrounded by dimensions that are parallel to our own and some are even inhabited by intelligent entities. “Cyber Mushroom” is a mixed reality experience that allows the audience to tap into the dimension where the characters in the paintings are actually alive.
The experiencer enters into the painting and explores the realm within it. The experience combines mixed reality technologies and binaural beats to explore a non-ordinary state of consciousness through a Cyberdelic experience. The experience aims at showing the audience that there is always more to what we are perceiving and therefore it is important to keep our minds open to the world of possibilities in this mystical human experience that we are going through.
Contextology is the study of context or the science of ‘Context Engineering’ (CE). CE focuses less on engineering content and instead attempts to manipulate and create context directly. This is achieved where we are enabled (via CE tools) to reconfigure our own perception and cognitive abilities directly (individually or in groups) as the primary ‘content’. This means that the lenses through which we experience the world are becoming more adjustable than ever. CE considers the broad spectrum of what augmentation can do but also highlights the dangers of focusing solely on technology. CE gives us new abilities, control over our senses and the ability to develop new forms of perception, providing us with a new type of self and societal exploration.
Soundself is a sensual exploration game about the intrinsic pleasure of playing instead of the reward of winning. You use your voice to explore a hypnotic world of sounds and visuals that feel like they are emerging directly from your body. Each tone will navigate you through strobing tunnels-of-light, impossible shapes, and into a meditative trance.
The result is an elegant symmetry of image, sound and body that takes advantage of loopholes in the way you perceive to facilitate a new experience of yourself and your world. Each play-through lasts one extremely intense hour.
Death Is Only The Beginning
VR | Virtual Awakening
“Death is Only the Beginning” is based on a conceptual representation of a Near Death Experience (NDE). Through 360 VR environments, this experience takes the viewer through various stages of a NDE, subjecting the viewer to visions of an afterlife realm, where one is exposed through a series of environments made of light, sacred geometry, and complex fractals, in addition, the viewer is then confronted through a life review, which goal is to raise awareness of key global issues facing us today.
Technicians of Consciousness
Neuro Feedback Therapy | Heather Hargraves
Positive outcomes connected to experiences of altered states of consciousness (ASC) have been linked to various brain wave patterns. Innovative neurofeedback (NFB) technologies, which serve to alter brain wave patterns, are being developed in an attempt to create adjunctive therapeutic treatments for psychotherapy.
The current study investigated a reduction in 1-20 Hz NFB training of the default mode network, a protocol based on Muthukumaraswamy et al., (2013) MEG findings with psilocybin. The goal of this study was to induce ASC via neurofeedback and examine associations between NFB, ASC, mood changes, and trait predictors. This showcase will highlight the potential for neurofeedback to support psychedelic therapies.
MR | Carl H. Smith
If our sensory inputs were transformed to more closely match those of other species, how long would it take for neuroplasticity to decode such new representations? Can the umwelts of other creatures, brought to us in greater detail than ever before through cutting-edge Mixed Reality, help induce a deeper empathy across Earth’s species and beyond? How far can our perceptıons be altered before the cease toehold a valid representation of reality? For that matter what even is a valid representation of reality?
We have constructed a state of the art MR camera rig capable of capturing the natural world in stereoscopic 360 at staggeringly high frame rates and resolutions. You are invited to experience planet Earth from the perspectives of its nonhuman denizens, featuring footage recently captured across the world.
VR Mindfulness Training Games
Leiden Institute of Brain Cognition
A collaborative effort among researchers at Leiden University, clinicians at National Institute of Mental Health in Prague (NUDZ) and industry partners (Xlab.cz) we aim to improve on existing VR-mindfulness games by implementing a biofeedback to monitor and aid emotional responses and psychophysiological states during training.
Thanks to the application of two respiratory belts and ECG technology coupled with VR, breathing alone will become a very immersive experience. The respiratory belts will allow us to measure thoracic and abdominal expansion, and detect if the breathing method is correct and provide further feedback to the user. The user will also be able to observe changes in their own heart beat coupled with changes in their breathing technique.
Luicia Light No.3
The Lucia N°03 provides a deep limbic system relaxation while simultaneously encouraging a unique transcendental journeying experience. Step out of the stress of everyday life and into the present moment of bliss.
Experience a state of deep relaxation coupled with focus, where one is in touch with their own intuition and sense of wholeness.
White light passes through closed eyelids, past the retina to the pineal gland and central brain, creating a visual experience of one’s own design. The inner consciousness of the traveler produces scenes of indescribable beauty and each person’s experience is completely different. Music enhances the experience as the mind combines the two stimuli, generating synesthesia – the experience of seeing music. Light travelers can choose from our offered selections (such as solfeggio frequencies) or bring their own music (preferably without words). Faced with the artistry of their inner consciousness, light travelers cannot help but to re-evaluate their perception. Each experience is as unique as the person in the light.
EmpaticaXR is a Transformative Tech and Evolutionary Collective with the mission to translate cutting-edge neuropsychological knowledge and ancient spiritual wisdom into experiential narrative XR experiences aimed towards human flourishing.
We are encoding concepts about the inner workings of our minds and consciousness through the emotional power of the cinematic narrative storytelling arts, to create the audiovisual transformative experience of wonder and awe that can only be massively spread and personalized through the power of XR, AI & Biometric Technologies.
