  • Description (english) In 1967 the anthropologist G. Reichel-Dolmatoff published a study about an aboriginal culture, although the tribe in question was not visited and the only interviewed informant was far away from his cultural ambient and tribal territory. Furthermore he discovered a relation between hallucinations and the phosphene formula. 1. It’s a phenomenon characterized by the experience of seeing light without light actually entering the eye.

Please contact me over mail if you need a screening shot; I didn’t manage to upload one. Best, David.)
