Calling All Xenolinguists
The research into psychedelics and language continues under the sponsorship of The Institute for the Encouragement of Outrageous Ideas. This knowledge is verifiable. The growing number of xenolinguists whose stories are told here, reflect, for all their diversity, each other’s perceptions and ideas about psychedelic language, repeating certain forms and themes. One need not take anyone’s word here for what was seen and thought and produced about language in psychedelic states. The territory can be explored personally by repeating the basic psychonautic experiment:Dr. Slattery, Professor of Xenolinguistics at the Institute, takes the stand of a cognitive libertarian and a conscientious objector in the War on Drugs. The Psychedelics & Language website is offered as a forum for communication.
