    Comments Off on (en) about open brain wave interfaces – Masahiro Kahata

    mkahata@me.com About Psychic Lab
    In the 1970’s, he made custom-made Stereo & PA systems with OpAmp, analog & digital I/O system with LEDs, etc. at Psychic Lab. He became more interested in UFO and psychotronics than electronics after having his own psychic experiences and encounters. Psychotronics stands for the interdisciplinary study of the interaction of matter, energy, and consciousness.
    He also worked with companies like BUG, ASC II, American Biotech, Sony America, etc., which liked his technology and interests.
    In the 1980’s BUG tried to make Hokkaido a leading technology place for Japan. BUG’s idea was to develop a Techno park, work with Sony to develop Sony’s first personal computer’s Basic language, develop Computer publishing system for Dainihon publishing, etc.
    In 1983, he developed brain wave interactive I/O system with Lisa computer (first consumer computer with human interface) and other computers such as Apple II, CPM, Rockwell.
    In the mid 1980’s, Masahiro and Japan’s leading computer corporation “ASC II” created “ASC II Laboratories” to research new human-computer interface designs as Chief Lab Researcher. After that ASC II corporation created “Microsoft Japan” which developed the world’s first Windows computer for NEC corporation, introduced in 1987.
    In 1988 Masahiro started Psychic Lab Inc. in Japan, which lead to the developing of what would become the Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyzer (IBVA).
    At the same time, he started to develop the IBVA as a consumer product with Random electronics Design in Tokyo, Japan.
    Since then IBVA has attracted wide interest from large pioneering corporations, some of which were also interested in psychic phenomena applications.
    In 1989 Masahiro moved to New York, where he met many colleagues involved in paranormal fields such as UFOs, Psychic phenomena, Crop Circles, Mars anomalies, and ancient archaeological mysteries.
    In New York Masahiro worked with American Biotech to develop Mac version bio feedback system.
    In 1990 he start design and develop “UFO, Psychic, Science Cover Up analyze hyper media system” with IBVA interface.
    In 1991 he started Psychic Lab Inc. in New York. Started to ship original IBVA system for OS6 in April 1991. In 1993 he pioneered the study of brainwave experiments in the crop circles in the United Kingdom.
    Started IBVA Tech with an IBVA user in New York to market the IBVA as a business.
    In 1998 IBVA won a product award at the MacWorld Convention in New York.
    In 2000 he worked with Sony America to develop brain wave active game interface, however the project was canceled at half-point after Sep 11, 2001.
    2001 Start “waveUFO” brain wave interactive art project with Mariko Mori was succeeded 2003-2011 at 10 different city and country. this event was open brain wave interactive art technology to many people in the world.
    In May 2002 Masahiro became American Citizen at age 51. In the same year he quit IBVA Tech.
    Since 2002 he developed a new function of coherence in the IBVA, which shows visually how to synchronize the two sides of the brain. He demonstrated this technology at a natural medical international conference in Cape Town, South Africa, in March 2004.
    Started to develop Bluetooth IBVA system with Random electronics Design and Kuwatec, Tokyo Japan, 2002.
    Started to ship IBVA4 for OSX, May 2005.
    IBVA4 Bluetooth system, May 2006.
    IBVA4 V4.5.7 and Quartz Composer Brain Plugin for OSX10.5, Nov. 2007.
    Start to ship BrainDJVJ Application for iPhone, end of January 2009.
    In Oct. 2009 Start to make UK, EROPE, EU distributor agreement with IBVA UK, Luciana Haill.
    In Sep. 2012 Start open brain wave interface hardware at Instructables / TechShop San Francisco.
    In Oct. 2014 Start brain-duino MetaVolutiON project with Metamind in Berlin. Start ship brain-duino V0.1. Develop 24 bit AD board and libraries for brain-duino.

    Comments Off on (en) Yage is Our Life – a film about the indigenous people of Putumayo, Colombia, their relationship with Yage

    Yage is Our Life Main Title Film Image English“Yage is Our Life” is a film about the indigenous people of Putumayo, Colombia, their relationship with Yage and their perceptions on the commercialisation of their traditional medicine.

    Indigenous groups living in the Putumayo region of southern Colombia have been using Yage (Ayahuasca) for the health, social cohesion and spiritual guidance of their communities for centuries. Yage is rich in the potent psychedelic substance DMT and for these indigenous groups it is sacred, allowing them access to ancient wisdom and the spirits of nature. In their ceremonies the Taitas, or traditional doctors, use Yage to treat their patients for physical and emotional illnesses and as a guide for making decisions.

    Over the past 500 years the ancestral territories of Putumayo have been gradually eroded and these communities are at risk of further loss of land and traditions. In recent years Yage, or Ayahuasca, has become increasingly well-known in Western society. Many people travel each year to the Amazon to experience its effects and many scientific studies are being undertaken into its medicinal properties. As a result of this growing interest there have been numerous cases of people posing as Taitas and offering Yage ceremonies for large sums of money both in Colombia as well as internationally.

    This film voices the concerns of indigenous leaders through a series of interviews where they discuss the importance of Yage as a living tradition in their communities, the threat of its commercialisation, and the pressures exerted on their homelands by industrialised civilisation.

  6. (de) A silent revolution: Changing goals and values in drug-policy in the early 21st century

    Comments Off on (de) A silent revolution: Changing goals and values in drug-policy in the early 21st century

    max-heyden-150A silent revolution: Changing goals and values in drug-policy in the early 21st century

    Three years earlier than planned, the United Nations held a special session on the „world drug problem“ in April 2016. The results are just as much disillusioning as the reasons for the call to action. But beyond the justified critique of civil society organizations, a silent revolution was taking place in recent years: Neither the goal of a „drug free world“ nor the „war on drugs“ are considered reachable nor desirable anymore, and even cornerstones of international drug-policy are challenged in high level discussions.
    In this talk I will depict contemporary developments of national and international drug-policy and discuss the prospects of the competing political currents reaching from a call to the legalization of all psychoactive substances for recreational use to the intensification of criminal sanctions.

  7. Monica Cromhout

    Comments Off on Monica Cromhout

    monica.cromhout-150lives in Somerset West, close to Cape Town in South Africa. Born in 1945. Widowed in 2005. Now her home is open to people on a spiritual path of some kind who need a place to stay short- or long-term. The 56 years of her working life, before her work with mushroom retreats began, included many years in the position of Life Line director – a counselling service free to the public, where she managed the service and trained counsellors. She also worked for some years in the corporate world in strategic planning management, and for nine years, together with her husband, operated a small publishing company from her home. Now over 70 years of age, she is well-known in her country as an astrologer, which has been the main focus of her work for more than twenty years. She has a Bachelors degree majoring in psychology and sociology.

    Monica Cromhout will talk to us from South Africa in a live video stream.

    For the past seven years she has been the overall caretaker of almost weekly Soma psilocybin retreats at her home, where groups of up to 25 people meet to work together with mushrooms for purposes of enlightenment and expanding consciousness. Over the years, more than 1,000 people have attended the retreats.

    In December 2014, in the early hours of the morning, she was arrested while taking care of one of these groups. At the local magistrate’s court she was released on bail, and since then has continued with the retreats without being arrested again. In 2016, in the Cape Town High Court, the charges of dealing in an illegal substance were temporarily lifted, allowing her to take the matter of the illegal status of psilocybin mushrooms to the highest court in South Africa. Her contention is that this law is out of harmony with the South African Constitution which claims to offer to its people a higher level of freedom than other parts of the world. Seven senior governmental ministers have been summoned to the Supreme Court, and the case will take place in early 2017. She is supported by a strong and committed legal team, and other experts.

     

    At present, in preparation for her court case, she is involved in researching the long-term results in the lives of those who have attended the psilocybin retreats, assisted by a professional sociologist.

  8. (en) The 4 Archetypes Of Psilocybin – Psychospiritual Maturity & Emotive-Psychosynthesis – James W. Jesso

    Comments Off on (en) The 4 Archetypes Of Psilocybin – Psychospiritual Maturity & Emotive-Psychosynthesis – James W. Jesso

    James-W-Jesso-150Psilocybin provides the opportunity to explore a very novel state of consciousness which is being increasingly attributed with high levels of psychological and spiritual significance. In particular, it is being attributed to catalyzing powerfully transformative changes in those using it. There is solid discussion on the the various qualities and characteristics of the psilocybin experience within the academic community, but a coherent model of the psychology of psilocybin specific to the process of positive personal transformation is lacking. This presentation presents such a model, developed out of personal experience and extensive study.

    The model is referred to as The 4 Archetypes Of Psilocybin and discusses the its use for the purpose of supporting a process of self-transformation towards psychological and emotional health; the experiential characteristics of the psilocybin experience, the emotional processes it catalyzes, and the possible benefits those process can offer the individual; as well as how these described processes and benefits overlap with discoveries in neuroscience.
