The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

We decided to bring operation. Julie to the podcast. Both of us had read a book called undercover operation jubilee. The inside story and that was really fascinating book written by one officer who was involved in operation julie and his name's steven bentley. So we sort of conducted some research around. That didn't wait. What we found was that there was a detective inspector. Dick lee in thames valley drug squad and he was putting together his sort of annual report. That a ba- late nineteen seventy four and he realized that there was some kind of anomaly in the his undercover officers. Were very active in the pop festival scene and regularly they were being offered amounts of ls stay and considerable amounts of lsd.

Errol Morris on Dr. Strangelove
"I am delighted to be rejoined by the great morris. Thank you for being on the show. Thank you for having me on. This film feels of peace with The fog of war and the unknown to me these memory. Pieces with these elusive. Almost mythical characters. Why did you make this movie. One thing what you just said is music to my ears. I've been trying to explain in a number of interviews. I'm not exactly sure why part because it interests me the similarities between my psychedelic love story and the fog of war. So hearing you say it unprompted thank you. You're welcome picked up on that no absolutely The result of making certain oddball choices off of war. Came out of the entira tron my interviewing machine and this idea of first person storytelling. I'm not sure which came first. I think the entire tron came before this obsession with the first person although they kind of happened at the same time By phil mr death about an electric chair man and holocaust denier fred. Luter junior would have been an entire tron film save for the fact that the material became so controversial. It's really interesting. I wanted it to be one character film. But i couldn't because it involved holocaust denial as it turns out. I am a jew and i believe that the holocaust happened. I've never had any reason to doubt that it happened. But i've always. I've always been fascinated by people denying stuff because after all it seems to be a tickly now in our day and age it seems to be the central element of human existence. All you have to do is look at the results from this last presidential election. The understand that denial is sort of what we're all of our. When i made the fog of war it was my opportunity. I saw it as an opportunity. To really indulge in first person storytelling.

James arvid age nineteen of pompano. Beach was arrested and charged with battery on a security guard. Arvid attacked a security guard. An animal kingdoms denial land usa in the middle of the afternoon. I bet the security guard was quite surprised to be attacked in the middle of the afternoon while just standing at dino land usa. I mean you might expect to get stomped on by t rex but never attacked by a young teenager on the l. s. d. By the way this has got to be more than lsd. I'm familiar with ellis.

Magic mushrooms could help treat depression, study finds
"Trials focusing on depression concentrated specifically on treatment resistant depression a clinical classification that categorizes patients suffering from md who have not responded effectively to at least two different pharmacological antidepressant treatments during a current depressive episode so to translate that that means that that standard allopathic medicine methods of treating depression are not working for these people. I'm really curious as to what kind of therapy. They're doing cognitive behavioral. Good question that they were doing with addicts that had would. That was having great response with both silla. Simon and lsd in this case they say this mdd which is again major depressive disorder Is much more common with some estimates suggesting over three hundred million people worldwide suffering from this debilitating condition while a larger face trial before or after the planned. Amick to good question while a larger phase two trial testing silla cyber dd is currently underway. This new study in the journal of jama atri and i think that's journal of american medicine. Association offers the first peer reviewed published data showing efficacy for this particular mental health condition. This small preliminary trial recruited twenty four subjects with at least two years of documented history of depression. All of the subjects were required to wean off of any antidepressant treatment before the trial commenced so they were clean from the medications they've been on and the story here says depression was assessed using the standard grid. Hamilton depression scale rating the severe depression scores of twenty four or higher on the scale while seven or less is classified as no depression. At the beginning of the study. The average score for the cohort was twenty three. So these were severely depressed people. The treatment process resembled the general protocol used in most suicide. Simon studies two doses of silla. Simon were administered to each subject spaced two weeks. Apart a number of psychotherapy sessions both preceded and followed the active solicitation sessions. The results were undoubtedly impressive with seventy one percent of the cohort displaying more than a fifty percent reduction in depressive symptoms at the four week. Follow up so wow four weeks. After the treatment seventy one percent of these people had a more than fifty percent reduction in symptoms. That's pretty significant. Ya and it's not and the reason big pharma hates it. is it actually cures. that's right. it's not something that you have to keep growing and taking every single day for the rest of your life. I mean you could. But i mean you you couldn't. You'd probably have good old time. You'd also micro dose on sivan fairly effectively and not even
Oregon becomes first state to legalize magic mushrooms as more states ease drug laws in 'psychedelic renaissance'
"Tuesday was also a good night for more relaxed drug laws. Voters in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey in South Dakota, all legalized recreational marijuana. South Dakota also approved medical marijuana, and so did Mississippi. In Oregon voters approved some of the biggest drug policy rollbacks in the nation, They overwhelmingly approved an initiative to decriminalize all drugs. That includes cocaine, heroin and meth doesn't mean that these drugs are now legal just that if you're caught with small amounts, you probably won't go to jail or again also became the first state to legalize magic mushrooms but only used in licensed therapy settings here to talk about these measures, and what they mean is Herman Lopez, senior correspondent for Fox. Focused on criminal justice, guns and drugs High Hi. Thanks for having me. Well, have you let's begin with Oregon? And why did voters overwhelmingly, it appears approved this measure. So for years now, I think we've heard particularly from Democratic politicians this call to end the war on drugs and what that really means For a lot of people based on the support for this initiative, at least Is ending the criminal justice system's role in the war on drugs like making this a public health issue, something that's dealt with that and addiction treatment in hospitals and so on, but not through prison and jail and that Is essentially what drove this initiative not which not only decriminalizes drugs, but also puts redirects some state money to more treatment. And I guess it's a particular problem in drugs or problem everywhere. But Oregon has a particularly bad problem. I mean, pretty much every play every state in the US at this point, unfortunately, has some level of drug problem with the opioid epidemic and also just alcohol, misuse and addiction is really skyrocketed over the past few years. So unfortunate. I don't think Oregon's alone where Oregon was particularly bad, I think is that actually had pretty low levels of funding for addiction treatment on and that's one of the things that this initiative now seeks to fix. But it still is a NY Eyebrow razor, right When you see the headlines decriminalized all drugs. Do you think that this could change the drug conversation and the rest of the country? Yeah. I mean, it's toughly eyebrow raising. I mean, 10 years ago, Ah, no state in the country had legalized marijuana. And now some states are decriminalizing all drugs now granted marijuana legalization is allow sales, which, as you mentioned, this won't allow. But Yes, it's it's a big step and activists. I've talked to them, especially since they saw so much support in Oregon are hoping to like, Take this two more states across the country to really give way to that slogan, too. And the war on drugs. Well, let's talk about this other measure in or again to legalize certain uses of psilocybin magic mushrooms. Tell us about that. So there have been some studies showing that if you used these kind of like psychedelics and supervised setting, so there would be somebody like a trained facilitator, guiding you through essentially a hallucinogenic trip. Um, it can help some people he studies have been small, but they've helped people with PTSD, for example, with end of life anxiety. Some of the earlier studies were about people who have like terminal cancer and are really anxious. Like I think most of us would be about dying and It really helps essentially put thes people at ease to help them that there's lots of Interesting things in the research showing like some people find the spiritual connection. Some people just their brain to start thinking about these issues differently, regardless of what it is. It seems to work. And that's essentially what organ is now going to try to do is like in the supervised setting, so it's not going to be like a medical marijuana dispensary where you can go home with a bag of pot or whatever. But if you in the supervised sentence, you will be guarded. The really stripped you will essentially be able to use Psychedelics legally. And it's only mushrooms, though right, not LSD, or is it both? It's just so sad that that's what most of this research has focused on for lots of reasons, but So both the American Psychiatric Association and the Oregon Psychiatric Physicians Association opposed this measure. Why So I think one of the things that makes this one A bit tricky for medical folks in particular, is like we already have a process nationally for approving medications. That's the FDA regulatory process, like things go through clinical trials, and they're eventually approved. And unlike medical marijuana, say, 25 years ago. They're these drugs actually are already on clinical trial like that are already on that track. It's possible that regardless what Oregon did hear these medications could have been approved for national youth in a few years, and they're so likely to the FDA still overseeing those clinical trials. We're moving along. So I think that's that's a big obstacle here is like to put this in front of state voters. It's certainly an unusual way to approve medications, and one of the reasons that happened with marijuana was largely because The FDA was stifling research. But in this case that's not happening, So I think the argument is a bit different this time around. Okay. And then, as I mentioned earlier, several states passed recreational marijuana use and medicinal use. So where are we now across the country when it comes to legalizing weed. So 15 States have now legalized weed. Ah, and they've legalized sales. DC has on ly legalized possession, meaning it's kind of like a equalization model where you can't be arrested. But you also just don't even face a fine. But D. C has not legal ourselves who was blocked by Congress from doing so.

A Conversation with "Blackout Girl"
"Jennifer store is the author of blackout girl. It is a memoir published by Hazel in twenty eleven and it's about to have its second printing. Read the book and You won't doubt the power of addiction in the day to day life of a young woman, the subtle persuasion of alcohol, the pervasive violent consequences, one drink too many and the sheer luck some my call at grace to survive at all Jennifer Storm. Welcome to let's talk. Thank you so much for having me. You know one of the dynamics of our mission at Hazelton Betty Ford is that we published books and we publish your book in twenty eleven it's done. Very very well in fact, it's about to have its second printing. What does that mean to have a second printing of a book? It's such an honor truly to not have the story come out once and reach an audience but for it to have a whole new audience to touch I, it's it's a wonderful experience. It feels more relevant today than actually when I did publish it unfortunately just because of what we're seeing with sexual violence and addiction, it's still dominating headlines. The headlines more than it ever has. So it feels really timely and on the heels of the metoo movement I know there are a lot of people that are suffering in silence and so my goal is to get to those people and we'll come back to that in a couple of minutes. Cisco back into your own. Life. For people who haven't read your book or no the story Tell us a little bit about your introduction to alcohol and what happened as a result. So. I came from a mother and a father who both came from very abusive alcoholic homes and they of found themselves in high school and really vowed to to get away from that and so they married young my father went off to Vietnam my mother he returned my mother started having US Children's I'm one of three I'm the youngest and they did their best to keep us away from all of those family members that were heavily. Addicted at the time, they had their own demons, and of course, their own traumas that they never dealt with and for the most part though they did a really great job trying to raise us I really was only exposed to alcohol when my parents would have it at family gatherings, and then a friend introduced me to alcohol when I was twelve years old and I had my first beer which literally led to ten beers and I drank. The first time I picked up a drink and I write in the book that I it never felt that thirsty before my life and I blacked out that night and subsequently a came to well being raped, and so I had this horrific introduction to alcohol this very addictive introduction alcohol and yet it was the first thing I turned to to deal with the trauma of that incident. When you were sexually assaulted a home. was that your bottom as it related to alcohol it was the start actually. So it's what really propelled me into continuing to drink because. I had all this shame and this guilt in this anger and rage that I didn't know what to do with it and I was young and my parents coming from their own alcoholic abusive homes didn't have the coping mechanisms to deal with their own stuff. Let alone now watching their daughter go through this horrific trauma. So I started drinking you know and this was in the eighties. So alcohol was in everyone's homes. We all had the you know the liquor cabinet, and so it was really easy for me to access What happened to me led to the breakdown really up my. Parents marriage, and so the supervision and our home started to deteriorate my parents divorced by the time I was fifteen and so I was kind of left to my own devices as where my older brothers and drank alcoholic and that gave way to starting to use pills I would do anything to numb the pain I was having and so if it meant alcohol, it meant pills it meant marijuana that led me to LSD, which then quickly led me to cocaine but everything every single time I drank the result was always the same I drank I drank to excess I blacked out. and. So the introduction of cocaine when I was around fifteen sixteen helped kind of. Sober me up. If you will I always say that parentheses it would keep me from blacking out. It would allow me to retain control because when I was putting myself in situations where I was blocking out of course, then I was vulnerable to more violence and more abuse and I didn't want that. So the cocaine and the alcohol then became this really damaging codependent relationship and. And how long did that codependent relationship work before? You had your bottom. So eventually I turned to crack cocaine at age seventeen and I had my bottom at age twenty two and I it was brutal and I attempted to take my life. I didn't have any hope I was completely destitute. I didn't see a way out of my addiction I couldn't go a day without being high and being. Completely out of my mind and that got to a point where it felt so. That I wanted out and I didn't like I said, I didn't have any hope. So tried to kill myself and By. Some measure of grace I am here today and I woke up in hospital bed the next day and I. I had sliced my wrists pretty severely to the extent that of one was bandaged to to hold it together done so much damage and it was a miracle and the doctor looked at me and said, it's a miracle that you're live and I was in a psych ward because that's that's where they. Put you was nine, hundred, Ninety, seven and an intake officer came in and kind of started going through the questions and she looked at me and said you, you're not. You're a drug addict do you want treatment for that? Because you you shouldn't be here? Do you want to go to Rehab and I said, yes, it was the first time I had made the admission that my solution was actually my problem. And then you got treatment, did I went to a traditional twenty eight day treatment facility in Allenwood Pennsylvania by all accounts a great facility I they didn't they weren't trauma informed which that's the term that I would come later to understand and really appreciate but they didn't take into consideration the underlining trauma that I had dealt with. It was solely twelve steps addiction recovery. We're not going to deal with these outside issues right now you're here to get clean and sober and that worked for me my first night and Rehab came to share her experience strength. And hope much like I do now and she had said something that profoundly impacted me and she said that her secrets kept her sick and that has been my mantra since that day in that Rehab and it told me that all this stuff that I was running from all these bad things that had happened to me and these pains and these traumas these were the causation. These were the reasons and I needed to deal with these if I really wanted to be clean and sober for the rest of my life, and so I did that work on my own. The trauma work did yes. which point you decide that you're story. was worth telling. In a memoir. I started writing that night in Rehab writing has always been a source of of empowerment and healing for me. Even after the rape I have a book of poems that that I wrote I would stay up all night i. now know that that's post traumatic stress disorder I couldn't sleep. I had insomnia had irrational fears so I would right and that would calm me and so because I couldn't talk about my trauma in traditional treatment facility I wrote about it. And I kept writing and then I did my fourth step and I kept writing and kept writing and you know I was an avid reader at the time and that's really when memoir was starting to come into play and I wasn't finding my story anywhere and so I thought well, I have a good story. Maybe I'll maybe I'll submit it and I was a big fan of melody babies and so I just happened to twelve of her books. So I happened to look in the book and see well their published by this amazing place called women, and so I reached out to Hazelden and sure enough they were interested and it was it was an incredible

Mind Over Body Cure
"Well, we've heard quite a few people on this show and others claim that they have thought themselves well, even in the face of death, but what about those people who do get sick and do get worse and die. Are they being made to feel guilty for not thinking themselves well well. My guest today are on opposite sides of this mind over body debate. Doctors don't know why my first guest is alive Lynyrd, borden says He. He changed his attitude. Imagine summarize warriors fighting the cancer in his body. A month later, the cancer was gone my next. Gus was told she had eighteen months to live if she did not have chemotherapy for her breast cancer Jane, Griffiths says she refused the treatment ten years later. She is still alive. My next guest wrote one of the most popular mind over body bestsellers. Dr Bernie seagulls love. Medicine and miracles explains his experiences with. With what he calls exceptional patients who hill themselves in the face of death. My next guest is a doctor who totally disagrees with Dr Segel's philosophy Dr Shirley new says sick. People are being made to feel guilty if they don't heal themselves, and there is no proof whatsoever that any of this works Dr Newlyn is author of doctors the biography of medicine. My next guest got so tired of people telling him that his severe backache. Backache was his own doing because of a bad attitude and stress. He wrote a column in Newsweek. Magazine to complain about it. Meet Rabbi Benjamin Black and my last guest says when she was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, people wanted her to try acupuncture and Yoga and love to get well and Spain says she live as long as she can, but she is also planning her death. Welcome all of our guests to the show. Start with you. I'll start with you. Because is where we got the idea to do the show from that column that you wrote in Newsweek magazine. What happened? I suffered from a herniated disk and I was just looking for some sympathy. And, then I suddenly realized that there was a psychological change in our society. and. Everybody kept saying to me. Why are you doing this to yourself? You must be the victim of self induced stress. And what really got me upset was that I recall the friend of mine who had died of cancer. who was able to deal with the reality of sickness? But couldn't cope with the fact that throughout the last days people made him feel as if he was the guilty one because he didn't obviously want to get well strongly enough because he wasn't trying hard enough, and he would cry to me. Does this mean I'm failure? What I'm saying is that there's an extreme position today I grant of course that there's a great deal to mind body relationship I grant as well that there is such a thing as love, medicine and miracles. What I think is wrong is I believe is a rabbi that we pray for miracles, but we don't expect miracles and when they don't happen, say that anybody who isn't well must be guilty himself. Don't blame the victim. Victim. Do you think Dr Newland this is making? People feel guilty as they die well. There's no question about that. That's really not my problem with Bernie's propositions. My problem with Bernie's propositions has to do with the aura science that he puts around them, in spite of the fact that what he's actually done is to take an enormous leap of faith, which of course is the secret of it all an enormous leap of faith from certain experiments, which show something that we all agree on that. There is a psychological factor that involves the immune system I don't think any sensitive physician physician with any experience could possibly disagree with the concept that patient state of mind is very important in their illness. But along comes Bernie, and says poof. The mind controls the immune system direct quote, the only quote I memorized from the book burning so that I could use it today. There's no evidence of that, and as long as people continue to believe with their minds, they can control their immune system there believing something that they simply can't do. It's like getting high LSD and trying to jump off a roof and fly, but you yourself just said that it's an enormous leap of faith and suppose it does suppose it does control the immune system, but there is no proof that it does. It's not a question of there being no proof that it does or does not. It's a question of our already being so close to understanding the various factors that do control the immune system that we know that the mind, the conscious mind is only one small factor. What actually happens is that whether we develop immunity to something whether we can control the disease process has to do with three systems in our body.

Concepts of a Psychedelic Trip P. 2
"All right. Welcome to the dirt show. I'm higher peaks Innocent Lady Sativa and welcome to part two of components of a psychedelic trip. I hope you enjoyed the first part. Like I said before. We're GONNA go into some really crazy stuff now. Last time we finished off with geometry Which is my favorite and I think that the eight levels kind of explains in eight B. I guess nine levels nine said nine eight plus but yeah I? I think that explains kind of the profound part of the trip. Which is I feel like the most important. But this time we're going to start off with actually fractionals. That's another common component in this visual geometry. These are a concept that exists within mathematics and can be described as complex patterns that repeat infinitely into themselves allowing for the same self similar image to be found no matter how far you zoom into any of the image. I think most commonly. That's what I see the geometry that I see as fractionals if you look that up online Google images. Those are pretty similar. Now good but really creepy is about an hour ago. I opened my phone and I was on a Frac Dole geometry page and I don't know how it got there. Is that not creepy? Yeah see there watching and listening always you know but hopefully maybe they'll raise our our stats right all right. All right specialties in law enforcement out there you know we hope you're inflating our stats for us. We appreciate it. Good looking out to your friends but fractionals. Yaffe look those up and actually I just want to make a point here. I hope I do. Not messes word up. But I believe it's ship bows ship. He Bows Arch Abell Shiva. Bows that the first one if you look that up that is there's I bleeding. It's an Amazon try or it's a tribal group that has been known to use. Iowa for a long time not like Amazon. Like you go online and buy something like actual Amazon guys. Maybe I don't quote me on that. I know you've been stuck inside for a long time but there's other things called like the Amazon. This is this is not mail order. I O Oscar right but if you look that up on Google that art diffraction images that kind of artwork is almost dead on so if you looked at At sperling cool too yeah and those tribes. They are Like I said well known for a long long long time of doing Iowa and they have. That's their artwork. And so it but if you look at it they've really kind of nailed it how it looks. Yeah good examples there. They had good notebooks in their head in their head. And I guess the stick in a piece of wood. I don't know I don't know. Yeah all right. A hallucinatory state. The fourth century effect is perhaps the most profound subjective sensory effect that the psychedelic experience has to offer there manifested as two distinct affects which come in a variety of different intensities external hallucinations. Right which we know. That self explanatory internal hallucinations. Which again is a self explanatory? Well it's closed. I think it's open Iverson's closed is where we're getting at here Maybe why I didn't put the definitions in. But maybe internal like I could see like I was building an insane asylum with my eyes open staring at something. Yeah so I still building stuff but my eyes were opened. I will see it. That's why I said it was at the ocean. Because the glow stick I was going back and forth and staring at anyways Enron experience. Yep exactly transforming hallucinations internal external the and the transforming hallucinations. Remember are things changing shape from one thing to another so it could be from a solid object to geometry or could be you know from solid object to another solid object But that could be both internal and external and I don't know but a lot of times they separate the transforming part from the other hallucinations right and I don't know why other than the fact that it's maybe it's more of a true hallucination in the sense that you can something can change into something else. That's real like a table. Could turn into a chair. Say Yeah Okay. Go ahead as these states of imagery become increasingly elaborate proportional to dosage of course They eventually become all encompassing full-fledged. Three D. Hallucinations which surround the person in fashion similar to dreams. This creates a feeling that one has broken through quote unquote into another reality. The things which occur within this perceived alternate reality can be anything but generally fall under common archetypes such as contact with Automata not automaton autonomen. I don't know what the fuck I was auto bought. It is not an Autobahn Thomas. Entities imagined landscapes and scenarios. That can seem so. Unlike anything previously experienced that they are in all probability untranslatable into English so in other words we wouldn't understand them. It would only be something. Our Mind could understand yen. Unfortunately I think a good portion of upper doses of psychedelics are like that even I cannot describe the geometry that I see does a really good job. But it doesn't you don't you don't really understand the complexity and just like your whole don't you don't understand imagery just like a book. Anybody who reads the book will get something different out of it. Everybody will picture a person in the book differently. Good analogy I'm sorry but here's a good example twilight to me. I don't think the characters matched up as the movies. So there we go. I me mentally. I thought of somebody completely different for everybody in there. It's just you know the way. The book explains something compared to what somebody else season their minds. I you can't make somebody see what you see. No you can't explain what you see to somebody exactly the way you see it. No imagination is so I mean that's just it. It's imagination. That could be anything. Some people have it. Some people don't And I think like what we're talking about. Here's what you've experienced you'd have to either be high doses of You know acid. Lsd Or say mushrooms. But you know like emt trip this will be common in regular EMT trip and the Thomas entities which we're GonNa get into seems to be really common with DMC and again all. These things are so abstract right but not only is the person who's under the influence comprehending it in their own way. I mean there's got to be so much influence on how they comprehend that vision. Yeah it'd be again like use like looking at a painting. What you see is going to be different than what I see Even though we're looking at the same colors in the same picture yeah. We're going to comprehend in two different ways. It might be pleasing to you and I think it's shit this is. This is so Gordon Ramsay shutout. The content of these experiences are often described to fill transcendental mystical spiritual and religious in nature regardless of the trippers theistic beliefs. And that's important to realize because it's saying that it basically supersedes anything that may have been there before The tripper demis each individual person. There you go. Yeah but also to like I had said in this geometry plus Dosages these are the transcendental so for a lot of people they might take an eighth and not necessarily hit that point epiphany of any sorts. They might not see an insane asylum like yes time. Yeah so that's you. My immunity was apparently a lot lower than because I cannot do that now. I can barely last time last time we did do it like actually solidly tried to do. It was when I was watching Harry Potter. And it took me until you were almost out of your trip in order to get into mine well again. That's the thing it's you can try to time things. It's it pissed me off and the only reason why you continue to trip is because I turned on Harry Potter. And you're like oh I just remember. You were tripping out next to me like the blanket all the way up to your chin staring at the TV. And I was all sitting up with the pillows in my arms crying because it was so cool. Yeah just because you're crying in the corner doesn't mean it's a bad trip.

"Distributed by Hugh the Great. He was an Aristocrat who passed out uninfected grains at Saint. Mary's Church and so people who ate those grains did not get sick and so they thought it was like it had some sort of miraculous power to keep them from getting sick sure. Well that's kind of like the you know being like Oh don't eat. That rat poison atheists cheerios and they'll queue of rat poison. Then it's like well no just don't eat rat poison. Exactly that's exactly right. Saint Anthony's fire was so common that they founded an entire religious order to To treat the victims it was called the hospitallers of Saint Anthony and dates to ten ninety. Five they they took care of victims. They treated the disease. They built more than three hundred seventy hospitals and because most of the people who got sick with this were peasants and were illiterate. They painted all the hospitals. Read so that peasants would know where to go. Oh Wow that's an interesting little tidbit. I thought that was fascinating. It is fascinating. The hospitals had a very good record for curing the disease even though they didn't understand the medical cause of Saint Anthony's fire because they weren't feeding the people the poison Brent. It's more likely the lack of Rye bread that the hospitals they did not serve Rye bread hospitals so people would go there and they would get better or they just wouldn't get sick from eating poisonous grains so what is it. Exactly that makes the Ri- toxic there are small. Black growths called Cox burs. I saw those for sale in a magazine ones. Farmers thought they were harmless. But there was some there were some medical practitioners that used them to like. I mentioned they thought it sped up childbirth by causing uterine contractions. It wasn't until sixteen seventy that a French doctor named Dr Fuller realized that it was in fact the Cox Spurs that could kill. He realized that the the the disease the Gengrich limbs and the hallucinations that he saw in his practice. We're not contagious. And that they were often poor. R- oral people who had the disease so we started wondering. What do they have in common? What are they eating? His first thought was potatoes. That was a new crop in France. Time so we thought it was potatoes. Eventually though he realize Cox burs could kill in high quantities now question yes so you can like you. You were able to see the the black cocks burgers on the bread and and yet people are still like Ma'am I guess just thought it was part of the grain. That's just terrible. I know you gotTA scrape that Shit Off. This like floor toast. Yeah you know you pick it up and you get a blow it off or trash. Canned corn dog rents off in the sink. That actually we had some frozen corn. Dogs cat dropped. She's GonNa make a corn dog and I said that would be great. Thank you so so she takes it out of the box and drops it on the floor or actually right in the trash can and she goes. Oh Jeez I'm sorry I dropped it in the trash can and I look over. And she's rinsing it off in the sink. She wasn't GonNa really give it to me but I don't think but I mean I had yet to microwave. That would have been taken care of all those Cox Burs so anyway Dr earlier even though he identified the cause of Saint Anthony's fire in sixteen seventy peasants and farmers refused to believe him. They thought it was fake news. Well into the twentieth century there were outbreaks of got poisoning. Because people wouldn't believe it. There was in fact a major outbreak in nineteen fifty. One in the French town of Pont Saint Esprit so was the was the disbelief that it was the Cox burs because they had already decided that it was like a demon thing or a God thing or was it because they just thought it was something else but certainly not cock spurs well. It was interesting. The peasants and farmers refuse to believe it. My thought is probably. The farmers started the Hainault lobbyists lobby certainly not on my bread and they convinced the uneducated peasants that in fact this naturally occurring event wasn't real right. That's amazing so anyway. The in one thousand nine hundred fifty one bunch people got sick and France again victim suffered from agitation sweating insomnia. They in some. I have Saint Anthony's fire. Starting wonder it descended into psychosis in four people died. How recently is that now? Here's the thing that interests me. The most if you look at northern renaissance painters their art work in the Sixteenth Century. So many of them wrestled with dark themes in work particularly in depictions of Saint. Anthony There's one sixteenth century painting called the temptation of Saint Anthony. It shows Anthony being carried away into the skies by fantastic beasts. The creatures flying on huge fish and surrounded by winged creatures dragging the saint off into the there is speculation that a lot of northern renaissance art from that time period was painted under the influence of hallucinogenics really. Because there's a Dali painting called the temptation of Saint. Anthony isn't there could be. I'm not sure one moment. Temptation of Saint Anthony a painting by Salvador Dali. This particular temptation of Saint Anthony. From the sixteenth century echoed rumors. That Saint Anthony's fire caused flying hallucinations. Making victims. Believe they could take flight. And there's a building in the background of the painting it's being consumed with flames. Also potentially a reference to the disease many art historians believe. Saint Anthony's fire influenced many of these great renaissance paintings. Oh I know yeah you show me a picture of Dali's the of Saint Anthony. I know that I think that was. Isn't that at the museum that we saw in Saint Peter's Petersburg I think so? It's the long legged elephants so art was influenced by Hallucinogenics. Obviously back in the sixteenth century and of course also heavily influenced art in the nineteen sixties. But it was the synthesized. Lsd right all you have to do is watch. The Beatles movie yellow submarine to see that that is a total acid trip. So there you go. Saint Anthony's fire. That was really fascinating. The idea that some of that sixteenth century northern Renaissance Art was painted on drugs is fascinating to me and it gives you a whole different perspective when looking at it now right that these guys were probably tripping balls were painting and that had a lot to do with these very surreal looking images painted. I mean come on flying fish. I really like to think that all art like I'm I'm playing a little exercise in my head. Right now where. I'm picturing different pieces of art and picturing that the artist who created it was real real real real high and so I'm thinking of like the most Muendane fruit still life as someone's like his grapes. My that was probably. We'd look. Oh look at that basket weave so there you have it seen almost fire a damn it. You did it anyway. Let's wrap this up. The dogs need to be fed.

"Somebody said I need your help. I need your support. I've been twenty four hours without smoking. Oh yeah and there was like. I don't know eighty or ninety comments that I saw people suggesting ways to you. Know we're offering support and encouragement and that just warms the cockles of my heart. My cockles are steamy up until recently I've had to have my caucus removed and artificially warmed and then replaced and that can be expensive in today's healthcare environment. Anyway it's my turn here. We go traveling in Medieval Times. There was a strange occurrence Nettie Evil in many evil times. There was a strange occurrence that most people were convinced was either demonic possession or the wrath of God pouring out on them because it vomit maybe indirectly it would start with a person feeling like their arms and legs or on fire and then their limbs would turn black and fall off where they on fire. They were not on fire literally. It just felt like it and then it would black and fall off for centuries Europeans wondered. Was this sent by. God is some sort of a punishment or was it some sort of a demonic possession thing could anything cure the disease? Nobody knew it was just this mysterious thing that showed up out of nowhere and infected people. It was called Saint Anthony's fire not to be confused with Saint Elmo's fire right which is a cheesy eighty s pop song for a cheesy. Eighties Brat. Pack movie was that the one where the Melia Estevez Demi Moore was in it. I I know that the disease started with this faint burning sensation in the skin and then red spots would soon cover their legs in their arms and other parts of the persons infected body and as I said they felt like their limbs were on fire their arms would swell they would turn bright red before becoming black and developing gangrene and then falling off. This was accompanied by terrible hallucinations. And this convinced them that of course it was either the wrath of God or demons were assaulting their bodies. Sure for dragging them to hell well then of course the gangrene would sit in that smell. Great once infected. Few people survived. Saint Anthony's fire was caused by Ergot. Oh No we know the story here. It's a fungus that could infect rye grain at the time hundreds of hospitals were developed offer Saint Anthony's fire treatments but nobody knew what the cause was foreseen Anthony's fire and I know I'm going to say saint almost fire before I'm done with doing great. I was typing this up. I accidentally typed saint. Elmo's fire three times. You just call it. Saf I could. That's what I do all the time when I'm referring to Saint Anthony's fire a call at SAF. Every time the hallucinations people suffered they. It was after eating the Ergot fungus and of course the the fungus is chemically linked to what LSD IN. One Thousand. Nine thirty eight. A guy named Albert Hoffman. A chemist in Switzerland was experimenting with Dot. Fungus accidentally synthesized a psychedelic drug which we now call LSD. So we're because I almost did psychedelics. Today no no way. That is Weird. One of my coworkers was like you should do psychedelics. And if you need an interview I am here all of your questions. That was like listen. Miss High MCI. Have you gone camping recently? Have you danced with the dog? There's another obscure. Carlos cost cost a reference. That's two and two shows when this guy accidentally synthesized LSD. How did he find out? Did it like he? He like touch it in like soaked into his skin and he started having reactions. I mean who was the first person to do? Lsd What was going through their mind besides large ravens wearing sweatpants. And how how did it become a thing? That was like listen. I don't want to tell you try this but do why do they call it? Saint Anthony's fire. Because you feel like you're on fire sure. But what's it got to do with Saint Anthony? Saint Anthony is the patron saint of loosened. Gen-x LSD. But you're close in a strange way. Yes it was named after Saint Anthony of Egypt. Anthony was a desert hermit who wandered around the Egyptian wilderness. Enduring his travels as the story goes the devil. Tormented Anthony with hallucinations. Demons constantly attacked Saint Anthony in graphic ways. As Saint Anthony's biographer wrote the demons approach in different guys and they attempt to strike fear changing their shapes taking the forms of women wild beasts creeping things gigantic bodies and troops of soldiers. These torments are only Anthony's head. Though for they are nothing and quickly disappeared the similarity between Saint Anthony's hallucinations. In those that brought on ergotisms linked to the two leading to the name Saint Anthony's fire. Oh so saint. Anthony was suffering from the effects of our got. Most likely he was a hermit. He lived out in the desert. He ate a lot of wild grains and Ri- and though wandering around in the desert again very cost Tanada looking for done Wan. So why the outbreak? During this particular time period ride became a very popular grain. This is according to rancor. It became very popular in the early medieval period when it was first cultivated in Europe. But it didn't take long before ergot poisoning followed the first recorded breakout of gangrenous ergotisms. Which is the most serious form of the disease occurred in eight fifty seven ce in the Rhine Valley? The victims quickly name disease holy fire because of the burning sensation in the fear that God sent a disease as a punishment it was the wrath of Almighty God. Thousands died from the infected rye and they had no idea what was causing this. So of course in those times if you didn't understand something. It was supernatural sure. The victims of Saint Anthony's fire were almost always peasants. Almost always because of the Diet. A small amount of Ergot was not very likely to cause serious harm in fact it was also often used as a medical treatment. They used to give it to mothers who were giving birth. Oh let's get y'all looped up. Wow Yeah see.

"The unexpected as the lid and wash asleep. You're inside the box oddities. Last episode. I talked about ghosts that were nice friendly. Ghosts and not like Casper. The friendly goes by ghosts that helped people in perhaps saved lives from beyond the grave. One of the stories I talked about was the CAR IN UTAH. That went off the bridge into the river right. Yeah well we got a message from Brent. He says I live in Salem. Utah drive past the Spanish fork river almost every day at the same time the mom and her baby went in. Wow there's only one house close to that spot. Maybe fifty yards away. The people inside the house supposedly heard a crash and went outside to look but didn't see any cars on the road. I could see. The tire marks the next day where she drove over the curb. I'm having mixed feelings right now about having additional information on this tragedy. You did a great job reporting it have a great day. Well firsthand account. That's always rough. It's a totally get the that not knowing how to feel about having that additional information. It's like oh I can contribute and also this was terrible. It was just awful and this was on the free group page Katie Rights. I just finished today's episode. I'm always entertained by the paranormal stories. That cat just rejects. I'm all for skepticism. I have a healthy dose of it myself but I do believe in paranormal stuff. Just not every dumb thing that people claim. But I love it when jethro tells one that you can hear stumps cat. I love IT I. I recall that ever happening okay. I don't reject everything I know. Just wish that it was all not true. I wish it's that I you know I mean I. I think that I like similarly to Katie. I like to think that I bring a healthy dose of skepticism. What do you got for me what you want you want you okay? Arizona lived there for years. That's true the Mogollon rim. Are you familiar? I know the name. I've never been okay. So the mogollon. Ram is a geological feature that cuts across the state of Arizona and it extends approximately two hundred miles. It starts in northern Nevada county northern Arizona. I didn't spend a lot of time. I will say while doing research for this topic. I came across about nineteen articles about lists of places in Arizona. No one knows how to pronounce. And so do that what you will okay Ford Kwaku. Oh that's a good one. Yeah that's you you try to read that one out it's not easy So the the rim runs eastward ending near the border with New Mexico and forms the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau in Arizona. So there is said to live a creature known as the Mogollon Monster. What yes I have not heard of this in like I said I lived in Arizona for twenty years. Oh really yeah. The mogollon monster is Arizona's version of bigfoot. Basically and from now on I'M GONNA call him foot. Okay has it's hard to say Mikoyan over and over again especially since. I'm not sure I'm saying right. So this guy m monster or M foot supposedly lives along the Mogollon rim although he has been spotted around Prescott end in the Grand Canyon seems to be pretty shy but every once in a while he does pop out for a visit. 'em Foot is reported to be Very Tall bipedal and has incredible strength. Some school type of a primate like bigfoot is supposed to be exactly a desert squash if you will. He is reported to have large. Is that some claim to be wild. Red and his body said to be covered with a long black or reddish brown hair with the exclusion of his chest. Face hands and feet in those are bare. That's correct okay. Or hairless yeah correct. Yeah no not a bear. Bear some say so now bigfoot you. Why don't you just heard of him and already on board okay? Now reports claimed that he smells real row. Bad and That smell is akin to kind of like a skunk fake or maybe a rotting fish. Okay all right yeah. I've heard mysterious. Bigfoot like creatures in various areas of the country smelling like Scott while the skunk ape it smells like skunk among other things others report that his weird smell is kind of like a decaying plant matter or like even the Muscovite of a snapping turtle basically if it smells bad and it comes from outside this giant desert ape could smell like it according to as e central Dot Com dawn Davis who was a crypto. Zoology investigator he died in two thousand two. He claimed he encountered the monster at a boy scout camp near pace in the nineteen forties. So I thought this was kind of interesting because it was not a situation where a guy who is into like cryptic words and this kind of thing went out into the woods and supposedly spotted. You know M foot. It was a situation where he was a boy scout out in the woods as a Kiddo in the nineteen forties and saw this and that dictated the rest of his life went into Crypto. Zoology because of this event because of what he experienced in the forties as a kid he described the creature as huge. It's is he said were deep set and hard to see but they seemed expressionless. His face seemed pretty much devoid of hair but there seemed to be here along the of his face. This sounds very familiar. His chest shoulders and arms were massive especially the upper arms easily upwards of six inches and diameters perhaps much much more. I could see. He was pretty hairy. But I didn't observe really how thick the body hair was the face and head was very square square. Sides squared up. Jim like a box and apparently he had mutton chops like me. Yes hopefully I smell better. Okay so Stories say that the creature is nocturnal. And that he NAM on both plants and very territorial sometimes reported to be violent He is reported to walk with a wide stride. That's not human like And leave behind footprints measuring twenty two inches in length. Holy Crap Yeah. That's a big big foot. Write 'em foot. This is what we're calling him now. It's said that most of the experiences that people have with 'em foot is like around campsites because they're out in the wilderness and he will build nests they say out of pine needles kind of hunkered down in the twigs leaves and such and that he will hurl stones at people from his little nest if feels like he's being invaded upon so you. That's also typical of the northwestern sasquatch. There have been reports throwing rock throwing. Yes people I've heard numbers of a number of stories of People that were in a cabin and they heard rocks falling on their roof and they went out and they smelled ski smelly smell thing. I assure that it wasn't rain falling angry on the tin roof. No no and they weren't laying awake in bed It was big for. May Way belong together. Bigfoot apparently likes to throw rocks. Well he's a sporty type now. There are reports that he has been said to emit a blood curdling scream described sounding like a woman in great distress and according to others there is an eerie silence in the wilderness before there are encounters with 'em foot so pretty much everything else Shuts right up if this dudes around and it said that he can produce. Whistle sounds or mimic birds mimicking coyotes or other wildlife Maybe in an effort to confuse the those that are coming into his space okay. How do we know this? You would have to see sasquatch impersonating a coyote to know that it wasn't a coyote. How would we know this? This is Reported Oh okay. Yeah I totally believe it's real. I have a question about that The oldest known documented sighting of 'em foot was reported in a nineteen three addition of the Arizona. Republican in which I W Stevens described a creature seen near the Grand Canyon Stevens described M foote having long white hair and a matted beard that reached to his knees so that just sounds like body hair. I mean unless you're part of the top who are really tall grizzled prospector. It were no clothing and had taliban-like fingers that had claws at least two inches long upon them upon further inspection. Stevens noted a code of gray hair nearly covering his entire body with here and there a spot of dirty skin showing Stevens later reported that he discovered the creature drinking the blood of cougars and it threatened him with the club. Wound man drinking the blood of hot middle aged women. That's weird. He was going after Courtney Cox.

The Secrets of the Self: Pitfalls
"Today. What I'd like to do is actually mentioned a few patrols that people on the spiritual bought what are susceptible to anyone who's experienced spiritual seeking or being spiritual junkie as they call them Goes to every workshop away every seminar on spirituality and there are some pitfalls that happened when you become a spiritual junkie and here's how you avoid them number one knowing where you're going knowing where you're going. There's an ancient Zen aphorism that says a good traveler has no definite plans and is not intent intent. On arriving. I repeat that a good traveler has no definite. Plans is not intent on on arriving. That's me by the way I travel all the time in some people have to take LSD and all these drugs do take a trip. They call it tripping. Okay but have you ever watched a baby. They're tripping all the time so happy and joyful they said what is is. This may be taking a kid. I wish I could bottle that they're tripping because they'll where they are. The Judy is the destination insulation. So if you know where you're going or you're not with me hard. Work driving ambitious exacting. Exacting plans a goal. That you will get to and you're never present right now for that. The new arrive where you will arrive. You won't be president. President anyways was the point to the West. bitwell is relax. The point of arrival is now in fact. There's no other point of arrival other than now think about it. Have you ever been anywhere other than now. Even when you're planning in your imagination to be in the future you're doing it now. The bus is history. The putsch future there is not yet. Now I'm alive. Good place to begin. So once you know this pitfall then can you will also avoid the other pitfalls and what are the other pitfalls struggling all the time to get somewhere. Menu have already arrived because the place. This is always down. It's also using someone else's map people say I want to worship. Jesus Christ do you really WanNa wish of Jesus Christ or do you want to have the experience that Jesus I'd do you want to worship Moses or do you want to have the experience Moses. Do you want to worship the Buddha or you only have the expense but I had I would say organized. Religion is buying into somebody. Else's story true spirituality atrocity is not buying anyone story but they're not buying the map but say how did they get there and here is what I'm going to do to get there so don't use other people's maps including mine. I'm just giving directions by the way and pointing the way you don't need to worship my finger pointing the way look in the direction that that way finger points and then if it seems attractive if it's not attractive don't go but don't use other people's map don't try too hard to always improve. Prove yourself you could just as you are. Imagine somebody was perfect. It would be so exasperated to be around them but if you have negative traits buzzed trade. Somebody interested in knowing you because that makes you interesting who just always positive always negative. While I don't WanNa be around you. Don't try too hard to improve yourself except just don't set a timetable. Don't wait for a miracle. Medical the miracle is happening right now and what is that medical existence and the awareness of existence. There's no big America Geico. Why is their existence?

Harris is through the Washington post Harris of the post you know. your loving on the campaign trail but he was terrace of the post and not anyone over to politico to create his own independent corrupt Democrat party front groups posing as a newspaper and and that's like that's okay that's all right you know I won't mention his wife and daughter in this because I'm a much to polite for all of that that I love these headlines CNN White House restricted access to trump's calls with Putin and Saudi crown prince do you think that Obama restricted access to the phone calls that he made with foreign leaders ward where they just out on the front doorstep there they are like home delivery in Washington the transcripts of Obama's just start making the transcripts public just start making a public because I want to see the Democrats on the news media but I repeat myself respond to all bombers transcripts with foreign leaders being made public what you guys said you wanted transcripts of the president's calls with foreign leaders made public not that president they would say. yeah how dare but now we got the people on MSNBC responding to president trump's wait. where he's quoting again. pastor Robert Jeffress and Robert Jeffries expressing concern that if the Democrats go through an impeachment over something they read in the paper not high crimes and misdemeanors but all all jammed up stuff and again Adam Schiff is just making things up he's he's saying things that aren't true to his friends in the media likes no fluff against himself and they just sit there and not knowing that it's not true but they don't correct them because they're very very corrupt because like Stephanopoulos is a Democrat party apparatchiks you can Adam Schiff tweeted trump is withholding vital military aid to Ukraine while his personal lawyers seeks help from the Ukrainian government to investigate his political opponents now I mean again Hillary Clinton's campaign got help from putting himself for her political campaign to smear Donald Trump but never mind never mind all that and Jeff is going around saying that the president was coerced saying are trying to convince the president Ukraine to gin up that is to fabricate things on on but none of that is true but if you watch MSNBC for your news which one of our callers earlier today Robert clearly does this is what you get from morning joke the pigeon sisters the circle fast at the lucite block and this is something again maker that Republicans have a responsibility as do all Americans. the president is warning of civil war warning us who is actually calling for political opponents to be arrested for treason of course last week suggesting that that should carry the death penalty so calling for the death of of a political opponents because he doesn't like how they conducted themselves. in hearings last week now I I did no sense of irony it was William weld on this very show with these very hosts just last week who called for president trump to be executed for treason talk about pressure in a foreign country to interfere with and control a U. S. selection it couldn't be clearer and that's not just undermining democratic institutions that is treason treason pure and simple and the penalty for treason under the US code his death that's the only the only. laceration his removal from office. look like a pretty good alternative to you know that that is what I got a plea deal on the not only on that network but on that show one week earlier no sense of irony no memory for anything they have news timers it's like men in black they wipe their memories clear every day and start over again with the Democrat party issued talking points every morning it was just last week on that very show on that channel where they were calling for the execution of the prep not present hasn't called for the execution of anybody but on that very show that called for the execution of the present a week ago and now I just like LSD Alzheimer's brain damage half a brain just amazing amazing stuff and that passes for journalism in America and that's why pastor Jeffries made the reference to very gingerly Hey a civil war like. fracture in the nation. right and then they go he's calling for his opponents to be executed what we're what you're you're very very severely brain damaged Joe Scarborough.

"Dependent on expectation and environment. And it's the expectation both of the the giver of the treatment or the drug and the person who takes it in the early days of LSD research. This is back in the in the late fifties early sixties. There is very good research being done with it in terminal cancer patients, for example, showing that people near the end of life, if they had a structured LSD session and then follow up with a skilled person had much less pain. Required of far fewer opioids had much more productive interactions with family and friends and much easier deaths. People got excited about that research. And then other people who didn't understand that set setting drug interaction and thought the magic was just in the LSD tried to reproduce that by giving LSD to people without paying attention to set and setting and they didn't get the same results. And that's one of the reasons I think people backed off from from doing research. With it. How would you? How would you suggest people these days think about designing studies for researching these compounds because as you are certainly extremely aware? There are some incredible challenges with studying let's just take whether we want to call the psychedelic hallucinogens as an example in terms of trying to CBO control and some people will use niacin or sometimes of lower doses. An active placebo. There's a great piece in the New York Times just in the last few weeks called what is the placebo effect isn't a trick looking at the chemical basis, and it just gets the further down that rabbit hole, you go the more. You realize how incredibly challenging it is to design a study that somehow isolates if that's even the objective the effects, particularly when that's worth doing him. You know, really what we're going for is Howdy maximally increase the chance of producing. Positive experience. Now, I'm fascinated with the potential of these drugs in for healing in medicine, not just psychological problems, but you know, real things like auto immune disease cancer. I think is a tremendous potential for these psychedelics, especially to to give people the experience that they can change whatever's going on in by I'll give you one example that I give you a couple that I've written about. In when I was about twenty eight right before I left for South America. It started was starting to practice yoga, and I had problems with some poses one. I had the most difficulty with is the plow when you lie in your back and try to touch your toes to the ground behind your head. I got so I could get my toes about a foot from the ground. And I couldn't go any further. I had excruciating pain in my neck. So I I was about to give up. I thought I was just too old to be doing this at twenty eight and. I was a spring day. Living in Virginia. I took LSD with some friends outdoors, fabulous fabulous state. My body felt totally elastic. And I thought gee, while I'm feeling while you try to do that. So I lay on the ground put my toes down. And I thought I had about a foot to go, and they touched the ground. I didn't have any pain, and I kept doing it over and over this fantastic. The next day. I tried to do it. I could get my toes about a foot from the ground. There was excruciating pain in my neck, but it was different because I had seen. It was possible. If I had not had that experience. I don't think it would have been motivated to continue to practice. But knowing that I kept at it. And in a few weeks, I'm able to do it to me that's a model of what these drugs can do.

All. Embracing people who have these distinct of spiritual experiences, they they don't experienced division in the world in devote happen to the with the great organized religions is that they they unite people who are willing to see the same way and worship the same way.
