With a diverse background Jack and Jesse are very good friends, so, let's explore FRIENDSHIP with these two extraordinary humans and ...invite a good friend or two ;-)
Dr. Jack Allocca is a notable researcher with an impressive background in psychedelic pharmacology, machine learning, and the neuroscience of altered states of consciousness. He's a research fellow at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and has contributed significantly to our understanding of how psychotropic and psychedelic substances influence the human mind and body, especially concerning sleep mechanics. Dr. Allocca's journey has taken him to over 80 countries, where he's investigated both traditional and modern uses of psychedelic medicines. His work is not only academically profound but also deeply influential in practical applications, especially in consulting entrepreneurs and high-impact individuals on leveraging altered states of consciousness in their personal and professional lives.
Joining him is Jesse Elder, an action philosopher, time-piercer, author, mentor, speaker, and passionate entrepreneur. Jesse is widely known for his principles of self-mastery, radical self-acceptance, and inspired action. He's dedicated his life to sharing these principles globally, influencing countless individuals. Jesse's approach to life and learning is holistic and deeply transformative, evident in his creation of Prime Light, described as "The World’s Most Dangerous Meditation." His teachings focus on helping people live a self-authorized, productive, and fulfilled life. Jesse's journey as an action philosopher embodies a unique blend of spirituality and practical wisdom, making his insights invaluable for anyone seeking to enhance their understanding of life and relationships.
This PAUA Community Call promises to be a profound exploration of friendship, guided by the diverse and rich perspectives of Dr. Jack Allocca and Jesse Elder.
Mihai Dragomirescu, who loves to bring people together and stewards the collective potential of the PAUA community, will host this call.

2. 🎥 AI & PSYCHONAUTS | JACK ALLOCCA | PAUA Paris 2023
Dr. Jack Allocca, a renowned neuroscientist, pharmacologist, and psychedelic researcher, takes us through his extraordinary expeditions across over 80 countries, exploring altered states of consciousness and the fringes of the human experience. Delving into his pioneering work that intersects AI and psychonautics, Dr. Allocca shares groundbreaking insights on how AI is reshaping our understanding of consciousness and the implications this has for our future. Prepare to have your perceptions challenged and your horizons broadened in this deep dive into the ever-evolving realms of AI and human consciousness.
Some key takeaways from Jack’s PAUA Talk:
The Evolution and Impact of AI on Humanity: Dr. Allocca highlights the rapid acceleration of technology and how artificial intelligence (AI) is not just a disruptive technology, but a general-purpose one, akin to electricity. This evolution has profound implications for human society, as it has the potential to reshape every aspect of our lives, from problem-solving to altering job markets and even challenging our concept of identity and self-worth.
The Paradox of Technological Advancement: He discusses the Jevons Paradox in the context of technology, illustrating how increased efficiency often leads to increased consumption rather than conservation. This paradox is critical in understanding human behavior in the age of AI, emphasizing the need for conscious and responsible use of technology, especially as it becomes more integrated into our daily lives.
The Interplay of AI, Psychedelics, and Consciousness: Dr. Allocca presents an intriguing perspective on how psychedelics and altered states of consciousness can provide insights into the human mind, potentially offering a counterbalance to our growing dependency on AI. He suggests that psychedelics could help in reactivating dormant human faculties, enhancing creativity, and fostering a deeper connection with nature – qualities that are becoming increasingly vital in a world dominated by machine intelligence.
PHD NEUROSCIENCE, BSC PHARMACOLOGY, PSYCHEDELIC RESEARCHER & PSYCHONAUT
