Abstract [en]

We have seen a connection between the ritual dances us humans have been engaging in for a huge part of our evolution and the rave-culture of today. How they both use music and the moving body as a vehicle to access states of being beyond the everyday life. By diving head first in the world of dance and trance we have discovered even more similarities that we today share with the humans 10.000 years ago than we ever could have imagined. We have with the help of interviews and our personal experience tried to capture what the trance means for the human today, and with our research we want to illustrate the similarities and differences between in digital world we live in today compared to the world we have lived in for thousands of years before the digital technology’s advance. This text has been our vehicle to analyse and discuss the things we still hold on to as humans even though the world around us has changed.

Abstract [sv]

Vi har sett ett samband mellan de rituella danserna som människan har ägnat sig åt under en stor del av vår utveckling och dagens rådande rave-kultur. Hur de båda forumen använder musik och kroppen i rörelse som ett fordon för att ta sig till andra sinnesstadier bortom det vardagliga varandet. Genom att djupdyka ner i dansens och transens värld har vi stött på ännu större likheter vi idag delar med människan för 10.000 år sedan än vad vi någonsin hade kunnat ana. Vi har med hjälp utav intervjuer och egna upplevelser försökt att skapa oss en bild om vad transen har för roll hos människan än idag, och vill med denna undersökning belysa de likheter och skillnader i den digitala världen vi lever i idag gentemot den värld människan levt i under tusentals år innan den digitala teknologins frammarsch. Denna text har varit vårt fordon för att undersöka samt diskutera de som vi har hållit oss kvar vid som människor även fast omvärlden har förändrats.
