So this is religious like how they contact beings in this realm; ties AI to spiritual entities:
'One group investigating DMT space that's attracted the attention of Silicon Valley is the Qualia Research Institute (QRI), a California-based nonprofit led by Andrés Gómez Emilsson, who has a masters in Psychology from Stanford and co-founded the Stanford Transhumanist Association in his time there. QRI describes itself as "revealing the computational properties of consciousness," and among its donors are Silicon Valley VCs and AI and machine vision experts.'
'While Emilsson admits it'd be amusing if there was an ongoing conspiracy among machine learning experts to draw their algorithms from hallucinogenic alien universes, he believes the QRI connection is a little more mundane: that there's simply a "very high correlation between people who are into AI and figuring out intelligence, figuring out consciousness, and how the mind works."'
'For instance, Emilsson believes that studying the ontology of the various DMT "heaven worlds," which spark feelings of bliss and joy in users, could one day help us achieve a kind of "super happiness" in waking life. “There’s a bunch of heaven worlds,” Emilsson added, “[we have found] eight different varieties, and some are more blissful than others.”'
'DMT is extremely reliable, "like clockwork,” he says. “There’s a very consistent progression of ‘energetic life forms’ or structures you encounter, so you can absolutely systematically describe what goes on at each of the levels.”'
'Charting hallucinogenic worlds and conversing with interdimensional beings is admittedly on the more esoteric end of DMT research...'
Amateur psychonauts have been ‘mapping’ DMT’s psychedelic realms for years. Now, VCs and AI enthusiasts are studying the mysterious drug’s effects.
