Ballistic Hypnogogia Theatre

Psychonaut exploration without the use of expensive, illegal, and withdrawal-inducing drug abuse?

Introducing the dreamachine, endorsed by the likes of Tim Leary and Will Burroughs. The New York Times article on it is fantastic. You can experience the effect using your monitor here.

Though I’m thinking that it might be even more dramatic if it got hooked up to a projector for a whole audience to enjoy, which would allow you to induce mind alteration en masse (which is pretty sweet).

I’m thinking the Golden Arm will be regular “screenings” of the Dreamachine next year, with different soundtracks at each event.

How cool would that be
