Joseph Cambray | Altered States, Intelligences, and Oracles: Re-visioning the Unconscious
Thank you to the Pacifica Graduate Institute for sharing this video. From the video description:
Recent research into artificial and biological intelligences have clarified differences between consciousness and adaptive intelligences. The contemporary study of altered states compliments this, at times offering ways to engage these intelligences. In this presentation we will explore how the oracle traditions of the ancient world used altered states for noetic purposes and how we might reconsider these traditions in terms of models of the unconscious.
