An exploration of personality predictor variables (absorption and temporal lobe lability) and acute experience measures (5D-ASC) in the comparison of several non-drug induced altered states (darkroom anechoic chamber, floatation tank and holotropic breathwork) with psychedelic altered states (e.g., DMT, psilocybin, cannabis).

Dr David Luke is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Greenwich.

When he is not running clinical drug trials with LSD, doing DMT field experiments or observing apparent weather control with Mexican shamans he directs the Ecology, Cosmos and Consciousness salon and is a co-founder and director and the current chair of Breaking Convention: International Conference on Psychedelic Consciousness.
