Bernardo Kastrup, PhD, is a computer scientist. He is author of Rationalist Spirituality, Why Materialism is Baloney, Dreamed Up Reality, Meaning in Absurdity, Brief Peeks Beyond, More Than Allegory, and The Idea of the World. He has published several papers in Scientific American arguing for metaphysical idealism.

Here he describes a process of examining the mind deeply to discover the inner realities that exist at layers deeper than our cultural conditioning and personal psychology. He enumerates various approaches including meditation, biofeedback, breathing, and psychedelic drug use. Then he describes several experiences of his own after each of which he recorded detailed notes. Based on these experiences, he reflects on the nature of reality.
