Dianne Slattery Xenolinguistics videos

23 Oct

Diane Slattery’s Xenolinguistics: Psychedelics, Language and the Evolution of Consciousness, published in 2015, recounts Slattery 12-year exploration of an alien symbolic language system titled Glide, to which she gained access through psychedelically inspired altered states of consciousness (the term xenolinguistics refers to the study of such alien languages). Slattery’s original encounter with the Glide language occurred in 1998, while she was writing a novel. During a process of self-inquiry regarding an aspect of the novel’s plot she found herself ‘downloading’ a visual language composed of 27 glyphs, which were really just one glyph dynamically morphing and transforming itself into all other glyphs. Amazed at this discovery, Slattery soon learned to use the Glide language as a tool for the navigation of visionary landscapes and the rewriting of the psyche. Among other things, she developed a computer software titled LiveGlide, which she used to write three-dimensional notes during her psychedelic communication sessions, often producing video records of her conversations with the alien other. Here are two of these videos.
