On the multistability in consciousness

James Kent talks about his new Book Psychedelic Information Theory: Shamanism in the Age of Reason. On the multistability in consciousness:

“The brain does not want to exist in multiple states at once, by nature it transitions from one state to another with little or no overlap. [..] Forcing the brain out of linear stability requires some kind of radical intervention, like psychedelics, which allows the brain to find stability in overlapping states that would normally be transient or fleeting, like a prolonged lucid dream between waking and sleeping.”
