Video interview: Chris Timmermann – DMT neuroscience, experience and changing world views
We interviewed neuroscientist Chris Timmermann who researches psychedelics such as DMT and LSD at Imperial College London.
The interview was recorded at the Breaking Convention 2019 conference, and discusses topics such as the effects of psychedelics on values and the openness and rigidity of thinking, the experiential worlds catalyzed by DMT, the relationship between science, materialism and idealism, the role of integration in making sense of psychedelic experiences, the bodily effects of psychedelics, interest on psychedelics in the scientific community, the question about the possible biasing effects of self-experimentation with psychedelics, and the relevance of altered states of consciousness.
