As Terence McKenna once wrote: “You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.” Scientists tell us that global warming has reached a tipping point and as extreme weather and viral outbreaks wrack the globe, we seem to have reached a civilizational zenith. Can the full potential of psychedelics and entheogens reconnect us to nature and assist in lowering the egoic mind that has brought us to the point of planetary extinction? Can we create a new collective myth to steer us through these times?
A seminal lecture on the purpose and future of psychedelics.
