Lucid Dreaming and Virtual Reality—-Mutant Mind Meld # 2 with Jonathan Zap and Topher Sipes

Show Notes - This Mutant Mind Meld Podcast was recorded very late at night at the Star Water Bar in the Arise music festival in Loveland, Colorado on August 9th, 2014.  Topher Sipes is a lucid dreaming teacher and digital artist. 

The list of  things we discussed may give a feeling for the late night and THC-infused context :

  • Cognitive sleep state, telepathic bleed through and the movie Scanners 
  • Parallel realities, multiple perspective auto-erotic experiences and ego transcendence
  • Archonic time police versus the guild of time shifters as an autonomous internally generated bardo
  • Cephalization, neurological simulacra and the growth of interiority as an evolutionary teleology
  • Interactive performance art as collective lucid dream
  • The evolution of video game technology and its influence on dreaming
  • Using off-the-shelf hardware to incorporate players’ archetypal dominants into  
  • individualized video game interactive narratives
  • Flotation tanks as lucid dreams on demand and to augment VR
  • Pulling back the frame to observe real time liminality
