Challenges & Technologies
"With computers, we log onto the internet. With psychedelics, we log onto the ether, the other, the source, or the Logos — the informative, divine voice that teaches wisdom to those who seek it.
This source of information speaks in words and in visual patterns. It is greater in size and scope than anything that has ever been uploaded to the internet, and it is the source from which the likes of Francis Crick, Carl Jung, Nikola Tesla, and countless Silicon Valley developers have tapped into over the years for their groundbreaking contributions to society."
Writer & Journalist
"I certainly agree that for me personally, the psychedelic experience has enhanced clarity.
There is no doubt that the psychedelic evolution in the 1960s had a profound effect on the history of computers, computer graphics, and mathematics, especially the birth of postmodern maths such as chaos theory and fractal geometry."

4th Industrial Revolution
The industrial revolutions resulted in our current predominating social and economic paradigm. They set our underlying value system and the baseline for considerable growth and development, whilst recognising that this has been at multiple costs, including to our social and environmental framework. The complexity of the resulting challenges still confounds us.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution can be described as the advent of cyber-physical systems involving entirely new capabilities for people and machines.
While these capabilities are reliant on the technologies and infrastructure of the Third Industrial Revolution, the Fourth Industrial Revolution represents entirely new ways in which technology becomes embedded within societies and even our human bodies.
Examples include genome editing & biotechnology, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, nano technology, virtual reality (VR), blockchain, 3D printing, innovations in materials, the Internet of things (IoT), new methods of energy storage and others.
