Terra Incognita is the hidden landscape,
that of the mind itself…

We have come together from a multidisciplinary background with a common vision: to scientifically map the ‘Terra Incognita’, and to explore non-dual consciousness and bring that state into the psychological paradigm.

We can see the contours of this invisible landscape, indeed, we have traveled there many times. This realm exists, and is part of the larger energetic ecology we are embedded in. By re-connecting to this world within and expanding our current paradigm, we can change the world outside of ourselves as well.

We have the vision, and the capability to make this manifest. We are currently seeking private sponsorship and financial support from the community to support our mission:

To explore the frontiers of consciousness and bring back maps of hyperspace

Rak Razam, July, 2015

The Map is Not the Territory

We believe that consciousness is the ‘master app’ of the 21st century. By exploring, understanding and entraining altered states of consciousness as part of the full spectrum of our capabilities, we are stepping into what it fully means to be human.

About Us

Terra Incognita is dedicated to the scientific exploration of consciousness and spirituality. We support the ethical sustainability of indigenous cultures and shamanic medicines in order to enable the integration of beneficial knowledge in the modern world.

Terra Incognita facilitates an ethical engagement with indigenous and contemporary peoples and communities, with a focus on traditional shamanic wisdom and resources, cultural integration and consciousness. Our focus is inclusive of health, community wellbeing, environmental impact and sustainability.

Scientific data is being collated in order to establish the neurochemical basis of consciousness as interpreted by religious, spiritual and shamanic cultures, as well as by altered states of consciousness induced by trance, meditation & other traditional world practices. Of particular interest is the study of tryptamines within legally permissible and religious context, including the indigenous cultural use of plant and animal based substance to alter states of consciousness.

Relevant findings will periodically be published & distributed within the academic community and in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals. Online database Content Management Systems will be formed as an accessible platform offering mapped states of consciousness from many & varied traditions, religions, spiritual practices and shamanic medicines worldwide.

Terra Incognita invites relations with individuals and NGOS also focused on advancing the field of scientific, academic and conservation inquiry. We offer an alternative to the current world trajectory via indigenous and anthropological wisdom and knowledge of spirit & consciousness.

TerraIncognita-logo-alphaMission Overview

We will explore and collect data on altered states of consciousness, especially those from tryptamine pathways, induced from endogenous experience catalyzed from EEG brainwave entrainment and transcranial magnetic stimulation. We also gather EEG data on other tryptamine states like ayahuasca where it is legal (as in South America) and 5-MeO-DMT (legal in Mexico and elsewhere).


Information Technology

Utilizing existing software and Content Management Systems, we will create layered multimedia timelines that host three layers of information:


The video capture of the subject in the tryptamine state (analyzed for physiological data: blood pressure, heart rate, etc.)


By reliably harnessing EEG datasets of the different states of consciousness we will create a spectrum library of brain states and maps against subjective visionary experiences.


The subjective real-time oral report of the subject transcribed and mapped against the overall timeline to show correlations and patterns within the data.
