On a related note:
- Ziff Davis PCMag published an interview with me in anticipation of the conference.
- An ally of QRI, Tomas Frymann, gave a wonderful presentation about Open Individualism titled “Consciousness as Interbeing: Identity on the Other Side of Self-Transcendence“
- As a bonus, here is the philosophy of mind stand-up comedy sketch I performed at their Poetry Slam, which took place on Friday night (you should likewise check out their classic Zombie Blues).

Superb lectures. I find the discussion of harmony of particular help in clarifying my thoughts on this matter. I also find your approach so much more pleasing emotionally and philosophically than the purely reductionist approach of so many scientists. I am also most interested in the analysis of psychedelics and their effect on the brain especially in view of recent medical research into psilocybin and its possible effect on depressive illness.
