I am a big fan of the contemporary Consciousness Hacking movement for the ideas and technologies it provokes. I was very happy when I was invited to give a talk before the San Francisco CH meet-up on November 2, 2016. As usual, I spoke largely extemporaneously, which I do not just because I am lazy about preparing but because I find that it frees up the most interesting thoughts, especially with an attentive and tuned-in audience, which this certainly was! My thanks to Mikey Siegel for the opportunity!
