Technology melded with ancient beliefs. The crossing of computers, designer drugs, techno, and cultural idealism has lead to a new interest in what used to be called "techniques of ecstacy" by hippie anthropologists. Repeating techno and ambient music, along with computer-generated fractal images, produces trance states "similar" to those indiced by shamanic chants, drums, dances, and other rituals that still are performed by "primivtive" people -- that is, according to Techoshamans.
