Part 3 of 3 of our chat with Andres Gomez Emilsson (part one here & part two here)

We discuss: DMT Entities, so called "possessions" and how we might determine experimentally whether the entities are real (in the sense of other) or not (in the sense of self rendered); memetic hazard of weird discoveries; epistemological optimism; carriers of identity and universality of near death experience; mind uploading; the one electron theory; brain harmonic dating tech; freewheeling hallucinations and Steven Lehar; how Andres sources information and his thoughts on speed reading; blogs Andres regularly reads; tips on avoiding the hedonic treadmill; interesting lesser-known psychoactive compounds + more.

Corrections : at 38:30 James refers to ‘The Egg’, being written by Steven Binch- it is actually written by Andy Weir (author of The Martian also).
