CAN WE REPROGRAM OUR NERVOUS SYSTEMS?
Trauma stays in the body, it can have long term consequences on our baselines nervous system, it can make us hyper-vigilant and wired for anxiety. We call this PTSD. The question is whether we can reprogram our nervous system? In Stealing Fire, authors Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal discussed advances in psychology, technology, neurobiology and pharmacology — and whether they help us map healthy nervous systems? Can we then use that data and create new designer compounds to recalibrate the nervous systems of those suffering from PTSD? Can we tweak our nervous systems for human flourishing? I hope so. Recent breakthrough in MDMA psychotherapy might be only a taste of what’s to come.
