Newtonian Shamanics: Carve your own Reality Tunnel…
Nothing shatters reality quite like a near death experience: is reality mental or material?
Classical science, epitomised by Newtonian mechanics, is the dominant school of thought in humanity’s interpretation of reality. Quantum theory is a contrasting and arguably more accurate description. Shamanism: a mystical approach to healing and acquiring wisdom, traverses dimensions beyond the material and thus shamanic cultures often shun the rational objectivity upheld by science. Every belief system, religion or scientific theory, lies somewhere on the scale between Newtonian mechanics: where objective materialism reigns supreme and Shamanism where the subjective spiritual world is paramount.
The unique reality tunnels we each create, have a collective impact on our inner wellbeing, social network, environment and beyond. This presentation will compare some reality shaping theories, from galactic to quantum scale, science to shamanism and the inner worlds of our psyche and consciousness.
My background in Genetics and current studies in Psychology and Neuroscience will be reinforced by personal near death and mystical experiences, tenure working in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic, leading research on consciousness and psychedelic insights.
