After her death her family members found her hand-sewn books, or “fascicles.” These fascicles contained nearly 1,800 poems. Ben-Naim, A. Firstly, it needs to be stated that those looking for evidence for the authenticity of aspects of Freudian theory will be left dissatisfied by this article. download. Contrasting a vision of “the savior” with the condition of being “saved,” Dickinson says there is clearly one choice: “And that is why I lay my Head / Opon this trusty word -” She invites the reader to compare one incarnation with another. Nicotine replacement in abstinent smokers improves cognitive withdrawal symptoms with modulation of resting brain network dynamics. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.3668-10.2011, Fell, J., Staresina, B. P., Do Lam, A. T., Widman, G., Helmstaedter, C., Elger, C. E., et al. The Doors of Perception. Mysticism and Philosophy. (2010). NewYork, NY: McGraw-Hill. Freud had some important things to say about the unitive state that are directly relevant to the entropic brain hypothesis. Figuring these “events” in terms of moments, she passes from the soul’s “Bandaged moments” of suspect thought to the soul’s freedom. It is argued that this entropy-suppressing function of the human brain serves to promote realism, foresight, careful reflection and an ability to recognize and overcome wishful and paranoid fantasies. If we assume that there are many people in whose mental life this primary ego-feeling has persisted to a greater or less degree, it would exist in them side by side with the narrower and more sharply demarcated ego feeling of maturity, like a counterpart to it. (1997). 100, 508–515. Sci. New York, NY: Atheneum. That you will not betray me—it is needless to ask—since Honor is it’s own pawn—. Perception and self-organized instability. This chart shows the average (+SE) ratings for the item “my thoughts wandered freely” in 3 neuroimaging studies, each involving the administration of psilocybin and placebo to 15 healthy volunteers. Freud famously said of dreams that they provide privileged access to the workings of the unconscious mind (Freud, 1937) but research on dreaming is fraught with difficulties because [despite the phenomenon of lucid dreaming (Ogilvie et al., 1982)] the dream experience cannot be easily reflected on and reported in real-time, and neither can its onset and offset be easily controlled. Sci. James' ideas are consistent with those of Carl Jung; however, Jung extended them, arguing that the unconscious hosts the psychological remnants of our phylogenetic ancestry. A cortical core for dynamic integration of functional networks in the resting human brain. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press. Whatever the reason, when it came Vinnie’s turn to attend a female seminary, she was sent to Ipswich. doi: 10.1006/ccog.2000.0450, Silva, L. R., Amitai, Y., and Connors, B. W. (1991). Among the British were the Romantic poets, the Brontë sisters, the Brownings, and George Eliot. It is argued that this entropy suppression furnishes normal waking consciousness with a constrained quality and associated metacognitive functions, including reality-testing and self-awareness. A role for the hippocampus in encoding simulations of future events. Her poems followed both the cadence and the rhythm of the hymn form she adopted. Acad. Her reply, in turn, piques the later reader’s curiosity. Dreams. Clin. Instead it places its focus on the system-level mechanics of the psychedelic state as an exemplar of a regressive8 style of cognition that can also be observed in REM sleep and early psychosis. A measure for brain complexity: relating functional segregation and integration in the nervous system. DMN regions are centers of dense connectivity (Hagmann et al., 2008), implying that they serve as important connector hubs for information integration and routing (van den Heuvel et al., 2012). As outlined above, a key distinction between the primary and secondary modes of cognition is that secondary consciousness pays deference to reality and diligently seeks to represent the world as precisely as possible, whereas primary consciousness is less firmly anchored to reality and is easily misled by simple explanations motivated by wishes and fears. Static and dynamic characteristics of cerebral blood flow during the resting state. His first recorded comments about Dickinson’s poetry are dismissive. As with Susan Dickinson, the question of relationship seems irreducible to familiar terms. Changes in network metastability and entropy post-infusion of psilocybin. J. Psychoact. Am. Articles. (1966). That Dickinson felt the need to send them under the covering hand of Holland suggests an intimacy critics have long puzzled over. administration of 2 mg psilocybin and placebo (Carhart-Harris et al., 2012a). Psilocybin promotes unconstrained thinking and decreases blood flow, venous oxygenation and oscillatory power in the DMN. These bins reflect the distance a data point is from the mean and this gives a probability distribution of the variance of internal synchrony within a network for a given time period (e.g., a 5 min period of scanning). Psychiatry 73, 789–795. doi: 10.1152/jn.00077.2008. Am. Neuronal oscillations in cortical networks. The poems dated to 1858 already carry the familiar metric pattern of the hymn. Evidence for 5-HT2 involvement in the mechanism of action of hallucinogenic agents. London: Penguin Books. Z., Marzetti, L., Pizzella, V., Romani, G. L., et al. Her poems frequently identify themselves as definitions: “‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers,” “Renunciation—is a piercing Virtue,” “Remorse—is Memory—awake,” or “Eden is that old fashioned House.” As these examples illustrate, Dickinsonian definition is inseparable from metaphor. Examples include superstition, and metaphysical beliefs. Agonist-trafficking and hallucinogens. As her brain shuts down, Leila recalls her life in its entirety. Psychopharmacologia 7, 453–460. Wider Than the Sky: The Phenomenal Gift of Consciousness. Neurosci. In the poems from 1862 Dickinson describes the soul’s defining experiences. Preachers stitched together the pages of their sermons, a task they apparently undertook themselves. Indeed, one explanation for why some people celebrate and romanticize the psychedelic experience and even consider it “sacred” (Schultes, 1980; McKenna, 1992), is that, in terms of criticality, brain activity does actually become more consistent closer with the rest of nature in this state i.e., it moves closer to criticality-proper and so is more in harmony with the rest of nature. 14. Her work was also the minister’s. Articles were retrieved by entering the search terms “psychoanalysis” and “cognitive psychology” in separate searches using the default search parameters of PubMed. Is it time to expand our idea of the poetry book? In this world of comparison, extremes are powerful. While many have assumed a “love affair”—and in certain cases, assumption extends to a consummation in more than words—there is little evidence to support a sensationalized version. The alternating four-beat/three-beat lines are marked by a brevity in turn reinforced by Dickinson’s syntax. Leech, R., Braga, R., and Sharp, D. J. Gen. Psychiatry 68, 71–78. The probability distributions shown in Chart B were produced from placebo data where it is clear that prediction of internal network synchrony of the DMN across time is similar before and after infusion (i.e., the blue and green curves). Her few surviving letters suggest a different picture, as does the scant information about her early education at Monson Academy. These friendships were in their early moments in 1853 when Edward Dickinson took up residence in Washington as he entered what he hoped would be the first of many terms in Congress. In “‘Arcturus’ is his other name” she writes, “I pull a flower from the woods - / A monster with a glass / Computes the stamens in a breath - / And has her in a ‘class!’” At the same time, Dickinson’s study of botany was clearly a source of delight. Sci. Cohen, S. (1972). Huxley, A., Palmer, C., and Horowitz, M. (1977). The schematic below (Figure 7) illustrates differences between primary and secondary consciousness. She wrote, “Those unions, my dear Susie, by which two lives are one, this sweet and strange adoption wherein we can but look, and are not yet admitted, how it can fill the heart, and make it gang wildly beating, how it will take us one day, and make us all it’s own, and we shall not run away from it, but lie still and be happy!” The use evokes the conventional association with marriage, but as Dickinson continued her reflection, she distinguished between the imagined happiness of “union” and the parched life of the married woman. U.S.A. 108, 13858–13863. doi: 10.3109/14659890903271624, Carhart-Harris, R. L., Williams, T. M., Sessa, B., Tyacke, R. J., Rich, A. S., Feilding, A., et al. Interestingly, the only other item that survived correction for multiple comparisons referred to the promotion of magical thinking, i.e., “the experience had a supernatural quality.” It is a central hypothesis of this paper that psychedelics induce a primitive state of consciousness, i.e., “primary consciousness” by relinquishing the ego's usual hold on reality (DMN control on MTL activity). Dykman, B. M., Abramson, L. Y., Alloy, L. B., and Hartlage, S. (1989). 32, 10649–10661. (2008). Austin Dickinson and Susan Gilbert married in July 1856. 101, 131–181. LSD users. She did not make the same kind of close friends as she had at Amherst Academy, but her reports on the daily routine suggest that she was fully a part of the activities of the school. Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) for alcoholism: meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. (1954). 87, 068102. doi: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.87.068102, Raichle, M. E. (2006). Lacking the letters written to Dickinson, readers cannot know whether the language of her friends matched her own, but the freedom with which Dickinson wrote to Humphrey and to Fowler suggests that their own responses encouraged hers. Neuroimage 59, 750–760. Before beginning it is important to address an initial point of potential ambiguity. Staying with their Amherst friend Eliza Coleman, they likely attended church with her. The first chorus talks about finally having a mental breakdown, potentially much earlier than a person should have a breakdown. 2:118. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2011.00118, Knyazev, G.

Within those 10 years she defined what was incontrovertibly precious to her. Its fiercest critics claim that it is a belief system, a tautology with untestable hypotheses (Webster, 1995) but others claim that it has considerable explanatory value but could benefit from a closer integration with cognitive neuroscience (Kandel, 1999; Carhart-Harris and Friston, 2010; Panksepp and Solms, 2012). She readily declared her love to him; yet, as readily declared that love to his wife, Mary. The brevity of Emily’s stay at Mount Holyoke—a single year—has given rise to much speculation as to the nature of her departure. 8:20. doi: 10.3389/fnhum.2014.00020. Born just nine days after Dickinson, Susan Gilbert entered a profoundly different world from the one she would one day share with her sister-in-law. Not deep in an ancient stone sky-scraping pyramid, but gazing up mesmerized at the beautiful stained glass window in an old Coptic church. Effects of acute MDMA intoxication on mood and impulsivity: role of the 5-HT2 and 5-HT1 receptors. (1966). doi: 10.1016/j.neuroimage.2009.01.001, Jensen, H. J. Sci. That is, if the signal in all of the voxels within a given network deviates little from the network's mean signal, then variance is low, whereas if the signal in voxels fluctuate erratically, then variance is high. In using, wear away, (2009). doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.3689-11.2012, Lemogne, C., Delaveau, P., Freton, M., Guionnet, S., and Fossati, P. (2012). It begins with biblical references, then uses the story of the rich man’s difficulty as the governing image for the rest of the poem. doi: 10.1016/j.biopsych.2012.12.025. Issue sticky tape, allow joins to be made, and add a two-minute time penalty for each join in the ring. (2006). DMN-TPN inverse coupling is decreased in patients with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (Hoekzema et al., 2013) and increased after administration of the attention-enhancers modafinil (Schmaal et al., 2013) and nicotine (Cole et al., 2010). The ego can be defined as a sensation of possessing an immutable identity or personality; most simply, the ego is our “sense of self.” Importantly however, in Freudian metapsychology, the ego is not just a (high-level) sensation of self-hood; it is a fundamental system that works in competition and cooperation with other processes in the mind to determine the quality of consciousness. Not at all. 5. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroimage.2009.07.006, Keywords: serotonin, default mode network, criticality, entropy, 5-HT2A receptor, metastability, consciousness, REM sleep, Citation: Carhart-Harris RL, Leech R, Hellyer PJ, Shanahan M, Feilding A, Tagliazucchi E, Chialvo DR and Nutt D (2014) The entropic brain: a theory of conscious states informed by neuroimaging research with psychedelic drugs. Sci. While the emphasis on the outer limits of emotion may well be the most familiar form of the Dickinsonian extreme, it is not the only one. At the academy she developed a group of close friends within and against whom she defined her self and its written expression. There is growing evidence that brain activity, like much of nature, displays critical behavior (Beggs and Plenz, 2003)—and this raises some interesting questions: e.g., does the brain activity of healthy-adult-humans exhibit characteristics of criticality during normal waking consciousness, or are there other states of consciousness in which these characteristics are even more pronounced? Emily Dickinson is one of America’s greatest and most original poets of all time. The philosophical issues that relate to research on animal cognition can be categorized into three groups: foundational issues about whether non-human animals are the proper subject of psychological investigation; methodological issues about how to study animal minds; and more specific issues that arise from within the specific research programs. New York, NY: H. K. Lewis and Co Ltd SL. Functionally, the DMN is relatively removed from sensory processing (Sepulcre et al., 2012) and is instead engaged during higher-level, metacognitive operations such as self-reflection (Qin and Northoff, 2011), theory-of-mind (Spreng and Grady, 2010) and mental time-travel (Buckner and Carroll, 2007)—functions which may be exclusive to humans. These cells are an important target of psychedelics (Aghajanian and Marek, 1997) and are known to fire with an intrinsic alpha frequency (Silva et al., 1991; Sun and Dan, 2009). Later critics have read the epistolary comments about her own “wickedness” as a tacit acknowledgment of her poetic ambition. Hofmann, A. The style of cognition that is dominant in normal waking consciousness will henceforth be referred to as secondary consciousness13 and the (pre-ego) style of cognition that is associated with primitive states will be referred to as primary consciousness. The CIA, the Sixties and Beyond. Neuropharmacology 61, 382–386. A ten-year follow-up of medical LSD use. In such scenarios, uncertainty about the system is minimized because we know that it possesses a particular character. London: World Scientific, Hackensack, N.J. Ben-Naim, A. Evidence implicates the DMN in self-reflective and introspective functions (Qin and Northoff, 2011) and the phase of fluctuating activity in the DMN is often inversely correlated (or “anticorrelated”) with fluctuating activity in networks concerned with task-focused attention (task-positive networks, TPNs) (Fox et al., 2005). ^The term “infancy” is used here in an extended sense to mean the period from birth to two years of age. But I am still just an aggregate metaphor in the great American folk tale that is based on a true story. Her contemporaries gave Dickinson a kind of currency for her own writing, but commanding equal ground were the Bible and Shakespeare. It is a fair criticism of this paper that it has given insufficient consideration to the phenomenological content of the relevant altered states of consciousness, and to the specifics of Freudian theory, and so by neglecting this, has failed to present a sufficiently compelling case that these states have anything to do with psychoanalytic theory. Like writers such as Charlotte Brontë and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, she crafted a new type of persona for the first person. No use, distribution or reproduction is permitted which does not comply with these terms. One wish for anything desired by the winner. (2012). J. Nerv. A. When applied in the context of the brain, this allows us to make a translation between mechanistic and qualitative properties. (B,C) These probability distributions were derived from data from the same single subject, by discretizing a measure of the internal synchrony of the DMN across time into bins. PLoS ONE 6:e27633. Under the guidance of Mary Lyon, the school was known for its religious predilection. 367, 1280–1286. U.S.A. 106, 6790–6795. His omnipotence could not be compromised by an individual’s effort; however, the individual’s unquestioning search for a true faith was an unalterable part of the salvific equation. This schematic is intended to summarize much of what this paper has tried to communicate. The use, distribution or reproduction in other forums is permitted, provided the original author(s) or licensor are credited and that the original publication in this journal is cited, in accordance with accepted academic practice. (2008). She eventually deemed Wadsworth one of her “Masters.” No letters from Dickinson to Wadsworth are extant, and yet the correspondence with Mary Holland indicates that Holland forwarded many letters from Dickinson to Wadsworth. J. Neurophysiol. Serotonin receptors in the human brain–IV. The unique scientific value of psychedelics rests on their ability to selectively target processes that appear to be critical for the maintenance of normal waking consciousness. Hallucinogens recruit specific cortical 5-HT(2A) receptor-mediated signaling pathways to affect behavior. Years later fellow student Clara Newman Turner remembered the moment when Mary Lyon “asked all those who wanted to be Christians to rise.” Emily remained seated. ^A style of cognition in which causal relationships between phenomena are assumed despite an absence of supportive scientific evidence. There were to be no pieties between them, and when she detected his own reliance on conventional wisdom, she used her language to challenge what he had left unquestioned. In these “moments of escape,” the soul will not be confined; nor will its explosive power be contained: “The soul has moments of escape - / When bursting all the doors - / She dances like a Bomb, abroad, / And swings opon the Hours,” Whatever Gilbert’s poetic aspirations were, Dickinson clearly looked to Gilbert as one of her most important readers, if not the most important. Rather, that bond belongs to another relationship, one that clearly she broached with Gilbert. The Antipodes of the Mind: Charting the Phenomenology of the Ayahuasca Experience. One negative consequence of this however could be the neglect of accurate reality-testing. Before introducing the focal topic of this paper, i.e., entropy and its relation to key brain imaging parameters, it is important to provide a brief introduction to the pharmacology of psychedelics. Fair, D. A., Cohen, A. L., Dosenbach, N. U., Church, J. Neuroimage 37, 1083–1090. The end of Sue’s schooling signaled the beginning of work outside the home. Deutscher believes that ‘black’ is a wider term for the Islanders than for us, that they see blue as simply a hue of black. Humphrey’s designation as “Master” parallels the other relationships Emily was cultivating at school. When she wrote to him, she wrote primarily to his wife. Indeed, Freud acknowledged that it was his “metapsychology” that had the most to offer science (Freud, 1949), and at least as a first step, this is where psychoanalytic theory (rather than psychoanalytic practice) should look to develop its scientific credibility. (C) Dorsolateral PFC (red) RSFC at baseline (top, orange) and decreases post-psilocybin (bottom, blue). Dickinson is now known as one of the most important American poets, and her poetry is widely read among people of all ages and interests. Grof, S. (1982). Neuroimage 60, 384–391. ^Self-organized criticality (SOC) is a property of certain systems that gravitate toward a ‘critical’ point in a transition zone between order and disorder. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroimage.2007.02.041, Raichle, M.

The dominant theoretical and therapeutic approach during the early era of psychedelic research was psychoanalytic. Dickinson’s metaphors observe no firm distinction between tenor and vehicle. The place she envisioned for her writing is far from clear. The minister in the pulpit was Charles Wadsworth, renowned for his preaching and pastoral care. Lastly, it is necessary to state that questions related to the safety of scientific research with psychedelics will not be addressed here. Comparison becomes a reciprocal process. Acad. (2004). With these foundations laid, the following hypotheses can be proposed: (1) coupling within the DMN, and especially between the MTL and DMN, is a characteristic of maturational settling that is necessary for secondary consciousness and the development of an integrated sense of self; (2) a relative decoupling within the DMN and specifically between the MTLs and DMN occurs when secondary consciousness abates and there is a reciprocal increase in the influence of primary consciousness; (3) decreased MTL-DMN coupling allows the MTLs to function more independently of the DMN and this can result in unusual MTL activities such as have been recorded with depth electrodes in primary states (see above and Grof, 1982; Bassett et al., 2008; Axmacher et al., 2010) and may have been detected in the BOLD signal amplitude increases in the MTL post-psilocybin (Figure 3); (5) unconstrained/disinhibited/anarchic MTL activity is a principal characteristic of primary states and the occurrence of these activities is consistent with a system at criticality; (6) brain activity in primary consciousness is closer to criticality-proper than it is during normal waking consciousness (which may be slightly sub-critical rather than perfectly critical). In consideration of these things, narrow-mindedness is to pessimism what openness (MacLean et al., 2011) is to optimism and strategies that promote the latter may be effective treatments for depression (see MacLean et al., 2011).
