The Hackstronauts would like to welcome Dylan Beynon for an exciting presentation on the neuroscience of ketamine and its therapeutic applications. Dylan is the Founder & CEO of Mindbloom (www.mindbloom.co), an NYC-based mental health and wellbeing startup helping people expand their human potential with clinician-prescribed, guided psychedelic medicine experiences. There, he is partnering with clinicians, technologists, researchers, and patients to increase access to science-backed treatments, starting by lowering the cost of ketamine therapy for depression and anxiety by over 70%.
Dylan is a 10-year psychedelic medicine patient and 3-time tech entrepreneur with both $100M+ in funding and an exit in his prior startups, which were focused on increasing access to justice and democracy. Dylan graduated from The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania.
From prehistoric Hadar in the Awash Valley of the Afar Triangle in Ethiopia to the modern-day underworld of Taipei “Lucy” (2014 – Luc Besson) is a story of super human abilities “overclocked & unlocked”. By inadvertently hacking the compounds that create the explosive growth of a fetus in the 6th week of gestation (a compound named in the film as CPH4) Scarlett Johansson (not hard to watch even for an hour and a half) becomes a shape-shifting, telekinetic, time traveller. What’s not to love.
The science is, shall we say, fiction (voilá “Sci-Fi”!). The plot is caper-gone-wrong/adventure and the concepts are pure nootropic fantasy which make for one DAMN fun ride.
We’ll watch this eminently entertaining movie on our big screen and then, while dispensing with the hooey biochemistry, have a discussion about the idea of unlocking the totality of our brains potential and magic.
Hope to see you there.
Come join our MeetUp Group NYC Biohacking, Nootropics, Limitless to see where this all began. And please come join us for our next screening (probably Ken Russel’s 1980 Regression-Biohack Horror “Altered States”) on January 11, 2017.
We are 115 Hackstronauts strong (at this posting: 11/28/16, 4:31 PM) and increasing. What is our next milestone? What is now possible with this concept and where would you, our growing Bio-Hacking masses, like to see this thing go?
So with an eye on making our group self-sustaining and empowering we look to our immediate future. Let’s realize all of those crazy future plans we have with some concrete first, second and third steps. This meeting of the Hackstronauts is about making a difference by marshaling our resources and building on this auspicious start.
See what kinds of things we’ve envisioned at Hackstronaut.com. Invent some of your own ideas, bring them to this meeting and we could possibly realize them together.
