“Psychedelic Information Theory: Mapping the Limits of Human Perception and Imagination”
The capacity of the human imagination is widely considered to be infinite, but the reality is that human perception is limited, flawed, and held together by illusions of predictive analysis. Psychedelic Information Theory poses questions that have not yet been considered by modern science, such as “What is the functional capacity of human perception?” and “How does the information quality of perception change as we move through waking, dreaming, or hallucinating states?” Various methods for defining the capacity of human perception are explored, and definite limits on human imagination are proposed.
James Kent is a software engineer and writer specializing in neuroscience and psychedelic research. He is the author, most recently of ‘Psychedelic Information Theory: Shamanism in the Age of Reason‘
