Overview

Has technology replaced spirituality in our search for meaning? TechGnosis explores how new technologies shape and transform human consciousness in surprisingly mystical ways.

Erik Davis is a journalist, podcaster, and scholar who writes about the intersections of science and spirituality. Davis earned a Ph.D. from Rice University in Religious Studies and is an expert in the studies of mysticism, esotericism, and Gnosticism.

Davis' first book, TechGnosis, gained a dedicated cult following in the late 1990s and was re-released with updates in 2015. Mapping a history of 'technomysticism,' TechGnosis is just as relevant today; many of the first edition's predictions are playing out in present-day technological advancements.

"By creating a new interface between the self, the other, and the world beyond, media technologies become part of the self, the other, and the world beyond."
