The chapel of extreme experience: A short history of flicker, stroboscopic light and the dream machine

Very short read focused on the use of flickering lights to create visionary experiences in the 1960s. The book was one long chapter and somewhat unorganized but there were times I felt I was right there with Brion Gysin and William Burroughs, experimenting with the dream machine. I would love to get my hands on a dream machine today. If you enjoy reading about the lives of people involved in the psychedelic movement and are curious about the dream machine, you would probably greatly enjoy this book.

  • What a cryptic Amazon page this book has! Since my grandparents were involved in related fields of psychology, I really enjoy reading about this stuff. Thanks for the suggestion!
