I am A. M. Houot. I apply philosophy to psychedelic states of consciousness. My research interests include phenomenology, philosophy of technology, philosophy of science, and the visionary effects of a psychoactive plant called iboga. Just as drug-taking shamans use human-made artifacts during their experiences, I believe that modern psychedelic users and researchers one day will employ modern/digital technologies in similar ways. My aim is to further develop a phenomenology of non-ordinary perception (psychedelic/intoxicated/altered) and a philosophy of psychedelic technology.
