Interview with Wesley Wildman and Kate Stockly about their book, Spirit Tech: The Brave New World of Consciousness Hacking and Enlightenment Engineering. Discusses high-tech tools like brain stimulation and neurofeedback-guided meditation that purport to enrich our spiritual lives, the risks they may pose to our psyches, and the ethical implications of technology-induced shortcuts to transformative meditative states. Also considers whether such spiritual experiences are authentic, rather than simulated and whether brain-based spirit tech might help humans evolve as a species.
