What are altered states of consciousness? Can altered states produce altered worlds?
‘Altered States’ explores the varieties of consciousness and revelatory experience. Bringing together thirty-six contributions, ‘Altered States’ includes encounters with dreams, panpsychism, artificial intelligence, grief, plant allies, mushrooms, ritual and journeys in sound and beyond. These poems stand at the thresholds of alterity to propose a new psychedelic style for the twenty-first century.
