"[Consciousness in a Nutshell] is one of those rare, brilliant books that use the technique and literary elements of poets, playwrights, and fiction writers to present a nonfiction narrative....If Umberto Eco is considered the most important representative of semiotics, Jay Nelson and Lindy Nelson may well become the same for psychonautical studies. Using their creativity and intelligence, their collaboration in this work could be labeled as a kind of modernist enlightenment in the fusion of psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, and evolutionary biology. It’s a treasure house of information written in a non-intimidating style that allows any layman to understand the nature and being of consciousness from its physical, neural, cognitive, and representational aspects. Highly recommended." -Vincent Dublado (Readers' Favorite)

How did we get here? How does life evolve? And why are psychedelics proving to be such useful tools in the study consciousness? In this talk for the annual PsychedelX conference, Jay and Lindy break down the "impossible-to-describe" transcendent or ego-death experience and explain why it's the first step in understanding 'what' consciousness is.
