Book Overview
What are the upper limits of human potential? At the intersection of flow states, mystical experiences, peak performance, and psychedelics lies a mysterious space of possibility. In Mapping Cloud Nine, bestselling author and award-winning journalist Steven Kotler takes us on a heady thrill ride through the history of human potential--and how what we've learned so far might unlock even greater levels of creativity, performance, and meaning in our lives. From Nietzsche to now--a tour of human consciousness In this six-part audio program, Kotler bridges science and spirituality to explore how our understanding of peak experiences has evolved over time--from early inquiries into altered and mystical states; to the birth of positive psychology and research on high performers; to pioneering studies on meditation and near-death experiences; and into current explorations of psychedelics, flow states, and technological breakthroughs. A brilliant synthesizer and gifted storyteller, Kotler paints a compelling portrait of our greatest human potential, inspiring us to leverage this growing body of research and step into new realms of possibility. HIGHLIGHTS - The evolutionary impulse for altered states of mind--psychedelics throughout time - The neurobiology of flow states, mystical experiences, and hallucinations - The spiritual path and the high-performance path--are they one and the same? - Altered states lead to altered traits--the next wave of consciousness hacking - Why bridging the gap between science and spirituality leads to even greater breakthroughs - How you can leverage flow states for a more meaningful--and interesting--life
