Where is it claimed that cybernetics can help when trying to enlarge ones reality tunnel? I see no good connection with cybernetics and reality tunnels. I've read some of the works of Wilson and Leary, but never noticed the use of cybernetics. Please elucidate.

I imagine the editor was just referring to cybernetics as a feedback mechanism, which would seem to fit in with the other techniques listed. Wibbble 15:34, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Abnormal Psychology?[edit]

Why is this in the category of Abnormal Psychology? Surely it's applicable to all psychology, not just the abnormal? --203.113.232.164 07:34, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Agree. Changed to Popular psychology until someone adds something more appropriate (I don't know the cat system that well). --Quiddity 20:31, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Hyphenation?[edit]

Shouldn't the term "reality-tunnel" be hyphenated? Wilson hyphenates it in the numerous sources I've read, and in the one reference I was able to find from Leary (Neuropolitique) he also hyphenates it. Is there a way to change the article's title? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.61.201.150 (talk)

Significance?[edit]

The term "reality tunnel" (hyphenated or unhyphenated) seems to be just a fancy term for saying "blinkered". Does it really need an article by itself, as opposed to being in the articles for Timothy Leary or Robert Anton Wilson? Autarch (talk) 19:56, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
