Curious to hear Era's thoughts on this clip.
I just started reading DMT: The Spirit Molecule and that idea is mentioned in the intro.
I dunno. Dudes like this guy are full of shit, but I don't think people really choose to live the way they live. We mostly just respond to our environment and upbringing. But I don't think the solution is to take a heroic dose of mushrooms and touch the face of God. :pThis is Graham Hancock's schtick. It mixes appealing ideas (we could more fully realise human potential, war is bad) with some implausible reasoning (we're being used as docile meat robots.) In modern liberal democracies we're at liberty to think and communicate on a scale that was unimaginable just three decades ago. If we're acting like meat robots, it's because we've chosen to plug ourselves in to Facebook and other time wasters because facing up to reality is too overwhelming. Dropping a few tabs of acid wouldn't help with that.
I think you're supposed to become Lucy."Our society is absolutely designed to shut down 90% of the potential of the human creature."
Citation needed on how this number was derived. If you are trying to make a point it really matters that your opening statement isn't just some bullshit figure you pulled out of your ass. What is the make up of the 10% contributing to the "potential of the human creature"?
I have so many questions that need unpacking in the first 4 seconds I don't see the point continuing thinly veiled libertarian rhetoric.
the spirit molecule.
I did it back in college.
the way "machine elves" has transformed from a neat in-joke description of the shared hallucination people seem to exhibit, into many claiming they are literally extra dimensional beings is groan worthy. DMT culture is full of weirdos, yup.DMT is an incredibly powerful halucinogen that lets you think you see the structure of spacetime. I personally enjoyed it on the couple of occasions I tried it. However, it is surrounded by a culture of weirdos that think it's actually going to cause the global awakening of psychic humanity, maaaaan.
Well, sounds like fun! You have no Idea how much I love to know what is death and what's going to happen then and what is on the other side, well if there is an other side!the spirit molecule.
I did it back in college.
For the curious, this is basically the same chemical that gets released into your brain when you die. This is the source of many of the "white light" people report when they die. Doing DMT is like a glimpse into what death will be like when you experience it. It's some trippy shit.
