"Why Experiential Realism? Your life is a dream. It's a dream of reality. This purposeful computational process is centered around one objective, one guiding principle only, one “raison d’être” - to produce a meaningful experience... Everettian Many Worlds nonsensical experiences are invariably purged and rendered non-existent.... We all are like droplets on the cobweb of reality reflecting one another... To us, our dreams at night are like they are - dreams against the backdrop of daily reality. Our daily reality is like nightly dreams against the backdrop of the larger reality." -Alex Vikoulov
Immediately following the January release of my new book "The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind's Evolution" I was overwhelmed by an influx of emails and a flood of radio and video podcasts invites, so I should apologize in advance to interviewers and podcasters who sent me an email or an invite if I don't respond right away! To give you heads up, guys, all interviews and podcasts can be arranged after the ebook release by the end of this month.
In the meantime, I'm posting here this 7-min. presentation short and I would suggest:
Video Short: Overview of My Work: From Digital Philosophy to the Syntellect Emergence w/Alex Vikoulov - Ecstadelic Media
On the scholarly website Academia.edu Dr. Ediho Lokanga writes: "A masterpiece. The work of a genius, by the highly respected and regarded, Russian-American scientist and philosopher Alex Vikoulov. The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind's Evolution, is one of the most important books of 2019. Vikoulov is far ahead of his time, a treatise worth reading. Highly recommended."
This new book "The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind's Evolution" (2019) is now available on Amazon, from Barnes & Noble, in select brick-and-mortar bookstores, and directly from this website.
As of 02.04.2019 we've got a couple of Amazon 5-star reviews of my book for which I'm so eternally grateful.
Brent Hatcher just posted on Amazon: "One of my favorite books of all time. I know one person who already hates the book. The most interesting thing about him is that he has never read it. Since most of so called reality is digital it makes sense that one person would love it and another hate it. And since our reality is also quantum influenced they both could be true at the same time.
Since the illusion of time is speeding up because more things are happening each day than before I hope that means Alex’s next book will come out in 2 years instead of the 3 it took to write this one. Since I learned a few decades ago that Einstein was working on the Theory of Everything when he died I have been captivated by that idea. I have spent decades studying most religions, philosophies, and quantum physics theories. More than any other book the Syntellect Hypothesis has synthesized the authors and theories that have most influenced me.
Cognitive ecstasy. I am a full blown junky. Some of the side effects are wonderful. It puts me in a flow that I always want more of. I’ve heard it said that synchronicities increase when we are on the right path. The author has stated that he has had them in relation to this book. I have also.
The Alpha, Theta, and Omega. I like being pulled. It’s more enjoyable than waterskiing."

And Russ Brinegar writes: "Amazing, thought-provoking, awe-inspiring, and the most mind-bending book I could read in a very long time! Some of the insights like consciousness being emergent twice over: information processing coupled with network intelligence, the Syntellect Emergence, the rise of planetary-scale consciousness, corresponding to the initial stages of Theogenesis, local Omega point-like source of dimensionality; and the Noocentric model are no less than overwhelming! Even some of the works of the brightest minds of our epoch like Max Tegmark or Brian Greene look like children's books comparatively."
Also, on the back cover of the book you can read the pre-print testimonials by Alex Yamane, Matt Swayne, George Lazar, Kirno Sohochari, Melroy Dsouza. I can't thank you enough, guys!
Since launch, The Syntellect Hypothesis has been steadily climbing in Amazon charts.

P.S. Other great new books on Digital Philosophy I would highly recommend are "Digital Physics" textbook-format trilogy by Ediho Lokanga and "Digital Consciousness: A Transformative Vision" by digital philosopher Jim Elvidge. My own just-released "The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind's Evolution" is a cognitive ecstadelic, "cogno-ecstasis." Read it today if you want to get on the crest of singularitarian wave. Or not, you have the right to remain blissfully ignorant....
