Psychedelic Information Theory is a formal analysis of the
physical mechanisms underlying hallucination, shamanic ritual, and
expanded states of consciousness. Written by James L. Kent, this text
was researched for over 20 years and includes over 200 references and 31
images related to the latest science in the diverse fields of
pharmacology, shamanism, and perception. As a succinct yet comprehensive
formal analysis of the nonlinear dynamics of hallucination and shamanic
ritual, Psychedelic Information Theory is destined to become the modern
textbook on psychedelic phenomena. Chapters include information on the
physiology of perception, types of visual hallucination, psychedelic
pharmacology, psychedelic neuroplasticity, chaos theory, shamanic
therapy, shamanic sorcery, and group mind phenomena related to
psychedelic consciousness. "Psychedelic Information Theory will prove,
no doubt, to be an important work primarily because it provides
researchers, in both the sciences and humanities, with numerous new
avenues down which to investigate. PIT provides us with a serious, and
in many respects successful, recalibration of the different psychedelic
knowledge bases. In great respect to the author, I believe PIT will
attract both plaudits and criticism with equal fervour and, in doing so,
help proliferate serious psychedelic research for some time to come." -
Rob Dickens, Review, December 2010 "In his new book,
Psychedelic Information Theory: Shamanism in the Age of Reason, James
Kent has attempted to describe both the experience and underlying
mechanisms of consciousness, in the language of classical wave
mechanics, with terms like neural oscillators, periodic drivers, wave
entrainment, resonance and coherence. His book offers the first steps in
developing a more refined and quantifiable theory and terminology of
psychedelic action. It suggests many rich opportunities for further
research that are bound to reveal some pragmatic and novel applications.
Not since "The Invisible Landscape," by the McKenna brothers, have I
found a book so original and propitious." - Jedi Mind Traveler, Interview, January 2011 "James L. Kent has proven himself to
be the 'Mythbuster' of the New Psychedelic Age. His book, Psychedelic
Information Theory is the everyman's guide to inner consciousness,
unraveling the scientific foundations of altered states. PIT challenged
my views on the psychedelic experience: I might not agree with some of
the conclusions, but I have a firmer grip on the basics because of it.
Kent helps outline the mechanics of the mind, but his reductionist
approach also leaves room for further mysteries to grow." - Rak Razam,
author of Aya: A Shamanic Odyssey, November 2010 "Kent's clear trail
through volumes of research gave me a solid understanding of how rod and
cone vision, phosphenes, the visual information processing rate, and
the brain's pattern-recognition function all come together or come apart
to modulate hallucinatory states. Kent deserves a place next to Grof on
the psychonaut's, scientist's, and psychologist's bookshelf." - Sheldon
Norberg, author of Healing Houses, Review, October
