Description:

The neuropsychological technique Consilience has the potential to transform our understanding of the mind. It produces a state of transcendent empathy, and in some cases has provided astonishing cures for intractable mental illness.

Now an extraordinary find has been made: a collection of full sensory recordings that chronicle the Alpha Experiments, those during which Consilience was first “achieved”. You have volunteered to be part of a group to to re-experience these episodes and discover more about how this breakthrough came to be. This process is not without danger, but the project designers are doing all they can to prevent serious emotional harm.

Consilience is an intense interpersonal LARP of experiencing other people’s memories and dealing with the consequences while trying to understand an extraordinary event in the distant past. It includes adult themes, among them emotional trauma, infidelity, alienation, and failure.
