"I'll tell you probably you probably don't have it. But the the father. Christmas stir rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is nine because reindeer love the red nose of the mushroom reindeer see anita mushrooms. They eat the mushroom and other ranges. No that's a good thing. Because other ranges waits till they the adds the contents of the mushroom which is the muskie mo and they drink they drink the urine of other of the rain because putting muskie mo- through a living creature gets to the authentic acid what comes out of the muskie mozota ranges knew that so the red-nosed reindeer basic here a sort of parody or a metaphor for the mushroom but so sounds close and santa claus. Looks like a mushroom. I read next. He's he's the white and the story. The reason santa close to come. Baron chimneys is because in his very northern as you know the very northern latitudes people often get snowed in. They'd often the snowdrifts would often. Complete almost can be submerged at europe's and their offense and people couldn't dig themselves out so others that had access to the mushrooms would would find them. See the smoke coming out so they knew that he was living down there and they drop the mushrooms down the smoke hole so that the people could sustain themselves in their in their code environmental in their tents submerged in the snow by the mushrooms. So that's why santa claus comes under chimney. So yeah i'm very interested. Think it might have health and wellbeing promoting property haven't he inflammatory properties that we're gonna find out in the next few years when we get enough of the active ingredients to be tested so far this race..

"That's two ships into the two guys will so not very practical that way but when i was writing about second dogs for how to change your mind i would ask people who were in the psychedelic community. What was their favourite psychedelic and burst surprised to hear many of them. Most of them say especially the old timers masculine by far the kingdom materials. My favorite that it. Was you know lucid and generous. Because fourteen hours could be less depending on your point of view. Although i didn't feel that way i mean i was. I was done with meulen before mess. Lomas done with me. When i try to so i thought it would be interesting to look at the other reason i wanted to look at. It was in the first book on psychedelics. I really stuck very close to the scientific enterprise. And i did that for a couple reasons. One was because science is the most authoritative discourse in our in our culture. And if you wanna get people to take something seriously you have to. You have to look at it through the lens of science. But that's not the only lens to look at psychedelics. There's a cultural ends to and an historical ends. And i wanted to look at the kind of indigenous use of psychedelics. You know in the west. They're very new They really don't come to scientific attention till the fifties and sixties and it was a little bit around the turn of the last century with mescaline but they kind of burst upon the west in the fifties and sixties and they come without an instruction manual. They're very strange compounds. People really don't know what to make of them and they go through this whole elaborate sloppy reckless. Rnd program of people trying to figure out. What are they good for. Both in the labs in the cia and in the street and the weird thing was though there was an manual available but we were too arrogant to to use it. Most of us were there a couple of exceptions and that was of course the the native cultures that have been using psychedelics in their religious and healing practices for thousands of years mescaline that we have evidence of mescaline us from six thousand years ago in south texas on the rio grande and it may have been older than that. And scylla sivan. You know used for at least Millennium in mexico and so the question i posed is. What could we learn from these cultures about how to use these drugs in a constructive way. And what struck me was that you know we think of psychedelics. In the west in the sixties is being a very disruptive viewers whether you think those disruptions were good or bad. There were things that needed to be disrupted such as the war in vietnam but basically we associate psychedelics with disruption of the status quo but change context look at the native american population and the use of psychedelics. There is profoundly conservative. It is it is a way to to Sustain a culture under threat. It's a way to heal. And it did enormous good for native americans at moment of maximum crisis in their history when they are their culture. Is you know. The destruction of their culture is official..

Bring down what had been a pretty glorious civilization. so it's it's not a happy story in that sense and but it shows you that these kind of vectors of imperialism in trade had been going on for very long time and that drugs have fueled it in many many ways. Well that's right. I when i get introductory tilk drugs policy to students at imperial college. Is this magnificent university. One of the best universities in the world. What do you think funded it foundation and they also they might if they think tool they might say coal rallies and i say no drugs and then they kind of look in horror. Because it's been we've talked to white that of our history and in that case was it opium dealers. Well i mean basically. This empire was built on older lewisville selling opium to the chinese setting candidates to the indians. I mean we may indians high cannabis from us even have it grew wild. I mean while there yeah we extraordinary ruthless. And then of course you know. Bring tea and coffee. Well you know a lot of great. American fortunes is a footnote in the book of where i talk about these. These august american fortunes that that that have their name on our libraries and art institutions museums. They were opium dealers and that's been erased from history. I didn't know there was a lot of money. Made an opium and a lot of it was people in the west wanting to keep it out of their country and push it onto another country and we. We were all involved in that trade. But there's another twist in your book about caffeine in and drug wars. Which of course. There's your civil war. would it be fantasy. The war was won by the north because they stuck. They had all the coffee and couldn't get it. Well it's probably too simple but that's true that were we set up a blockade so the south could not get all sorts of goods one of which was caffeine and we understood that and on the north We had the northern in the union army had provision. I think thirty six pounds of coffee per soldier They understood the power of caffeine to keep soldiers happy and an effective and in fact there were generals who would wait until their armies were maximally caffeinated before attacking and they would tell them to fill their thermoses. The coffee not water all right and in the south they were kind of you know He just didn't have that edge but the larger story is that the north in every sense was a caffeinated civilization. It already had in an industrial revolution..

"Companies have all been gone and sought help together. Yes, it's interesting. Is that saying that film from shock to all have seen that which is? Which is fascination? You can see exactly how that works, and how it's about people sharing the experience and acknowledging it and people discovering that the only people who are suffering from this and knowing that there's a way out, and you know how these therapeutic narratives develop and grow. You know it's very different from our clinical model quite like about it is the fact that people do become more connected to other things and other people so. That, you see that even when you do it scientifically, yes, give people side in a sprained scanner afterwards. They are a bit more connected, and if you do it, so if you could maximize that through some kind of proper guiding and social interaction during you might actually get much much better. Kindly, let's rise isn't and it's interesting how the guiding happens. You know because we tend to think well. You need a psychotherapist to be very empathic and released sort of. You know, but if you look at the Roadman and Shamans and people who do this traditional coaches, they're not that at all that much more facilitators, Justin, performing the role, so it's about bringing people into this narrative and onto this off onto this journey, and it's just how you establish the contours of that and lead people fruit. Now I know we're coming to the, but there's one question. So always fascinated me. It seems to me. Those native American tribes use to how surviving with a much better quality of life, much lower levels of addiction and alcoholism than the tribes that don't.

You know who turned them. You'd have to be doing this for longer than you have to. So I think for logistical reasons. Masculine has full and out of the mix, but I think there's a huge scientific literature on it. That's fascinating. Would be very interesting to for us to study that. We've just finished a D. M.

"Think and you can tell that when you read this literature people describing masculine experiences, which is vast, some people say it was the most ecstatic revelatory moment of their lives of the people say it was. You know deeply unpleasant and they'd never go through it again and. So like you know other psychedelics, it's very different, but I think maybe even more than other psychedelics. The context makes a big difference. If you take on your own all and sort of experimental framework you tend to get very absorbed in your sensorium, all facts that going all visions that you'll seeing often hearing voices, and having strange physical sensations, and that becomes overwhelming, whereas if you take it. In a social context or ceremonial one, whether something going on all at recedes into the background, and you become kind of much more in parts of collective experience. How it was used in the gray Spanish days, was it was it used? For collective group experiences do we know or was? It used a sort of for people just to?

You Know Chaman handing round peyote buttons, and everybody can taking them and singing and dancing, but there's also another type of use that you find you still find it in Peru and Ecuador in San Pedro. shamanism today at it's also recorded by the Spanish in Mexico with Peyote, which is more like sort of one on one thing as current Darrow, where you'll have somebody who's a specialist and who works with it, and someone will go and see them either because second, they want to be cured or because they have a problem. Somebody's cursed them. Or they want to know how in a distant place is doing. It's a ceremony in which usually both participants take quite a small amount of it, and through ritual and prayer, and the effects of the mescaline creates a a space in which these kind of questions can be on certain people can be fixed and repaired and put right without being sort of more akin to this modern concept of microdosing mushrooms versus microdosing is.

"You dared to raise all sorts of science and historical and anthropological artistic attitudes to two different drugs Mike, but your new book is called Masculine a global history of the first psychedelic, so tell us a little bit about why you decided to resurrect this cactus drug. It's fascinating in terms of psychedelics quiz, because that's the story that we think of starting in the nineteen fifties or nineteen sixties, but in fact masculine, the major psychedelic that synthesize the hundred years ago back in one, thousand, nine hundred, and so there's a long long history, wonderful literature from scientists and artists and people exploring in all kinds of different ways, and then before that as you say, it's found in nature in two families of CACTI the Peyote cactus in Mexico and the sound Padro in the Andes. It's indigenous use in both cases goes back thousands of years, and in both cases it's still used today, so it's a wonderful way of putting the subject of psychedelics in the broadest possible context in having a big panoramic view through history and across cultures, looking at all the different ways in which people have conceived and used psychedelics. to the Desert Living People's what I Oscar is to those who live in the jungle and the desert you get CACTI, and and that's Mescaline, and in the in the jungle you get I, Oscar, which is combination of two plants, it produces the emt without be fairly busy.

"Was doing more drugs than I could afford to do. What kind of drugs alcohol, by the way, was always the primary thing for me? It went along with everything, but probably the most consistent was Oklahoma and cocaine. But I was pretty much trash can I would try anything I went through phases where I did some mescaline I did acid. I did THC smoked pie. You know, I drank, I'd equate routes, you know, he got something will make me feel the way different than the way I feel when I'm sober. I'll give it a try. That was kinda my attitude back then. And so how did you how do you finance that when you're broke? That's a very tricky question. Well, I worked enough to support my habits. So even like when I first started coast to coast, for example, I cleaned carpets on the weekends to pay the bills and I lived very modestly, I had a house with roommates in every room. So I think my rent was probably one hundred bucks a month at that point, and any extra money. I had went to drugs and alcohol, and this, that's one of the things that I find so interesting about your story is that the company that you own you started when you were when you were still using and abusing alcohol and drugs. How does. I usually don't even understand how that how that happens like how do you go from barely being able to hold on a job to having severe addiction to the point that you, you're basically, just working to feed the addiction. And then you say to yourself, you know, I think started company and I'll start an ink. Toner company of all things like what? Where does that you see what I'm saying? Where does that even come from? I have an answer. Okay. So I went to work for a company selling back, then it was printer ribbons they hadn't invented laser printers yet. So there was no Incan tone. They were all line printers. So I went to work for a company, I think about nineteen eighty two eighty three as a salesperson selling printer ribbons, and I was very good at it. But I was not very good employees when it came to showing up to work on time because I was partying all the time. So even though I was productive that company, I got fired three separate times in the third time, I got fired was around August of nineteen eighty-five in rightfully so. I deserve to be fired.

I guess some of the experiences you said, Michael George from that first business allowed you to sort of come in with a bigger idea and how to build it now to scale it. But can you walk us through a little bit of how you actually got that off the ground, and as far as, you know, getting the products out there, designing them sounds like you had the branding and the message, correct? But actually the product how did you work on that we see no soda both in? And there were no small label manufacturers out the and it's still very much case in the industry.

"It's not that you finally. Overcame their mental resistance and gave them so much data such strong proof of climate change that they could no longer resist, and you defeated them. But that seems to be the vain hope of the climate movement that we're going to defeat defeat the other side, we're going to overwhelm their disbelief with more and more evidence, and it is not working. So it seems like it just has to be something that organic happens because you know, if we take this approach of trying to force people into a new story than it's basically just the old approach. Well, yeah. But that doesn't mean to do nothing. It means to really ask. How do I create conditions for beliefs to change? How do I create inexperience of the world? That is more connected. More loving more more intimate. One thing that I've consistently seen produce. This kind of result is when people take psychedelics ends specifically. I waspa- they start to feel very profound connection to everything into nature. And yeah and often realize that everything has its own consciousness, even if it's not the same as human consciousness. Yes. And I think that that the psychedelic movement the series of medicines that have come into our culture. You know, starting really back in the fifties with mescaline anelle St. in and magic mushrooms, and now I waspa- an from many, many others to they are hollowing out the story of separation from the inside, I know that there are people in even in government and at the highest levels of business who have gone on Iowa Oscar. Ceremonies. And and they have these realizations, and then they come back to make even being congress. I know that there are people in congress who've who've done I also, and then they come back there, and it's really hard for them to implement the realizations that they've had so went into happening is that they feel a little less at home in those places, and they become less enthusiastic participants in maintaining the status quo. So it's it's a very gradual hollowing out process. Like, I mean, even if Donald Trump took Wasco and had experience of one with nature and saw the living heart of nature in seller and so forth. What would he do with that? Still has to police voters. Yeah. What about his cabinet, you know, and what about congress, and what about the CIA and like all of these? And if he says anything of this people are gonna think he's crazy. And so he's like, well, I'll keep this knowledge secret. And I'll do what I can. And aren't we all kind of in that same situation in one way or another? It's not just people who've taken psychedelics, I think everybody on some level has carries a buried secret. The secret being. The world doesn't have to be this way. Is like we're all engaged in this very elaborate pretense, and we all kind of know that it's a it's a game. It's not we're just playing it. We're characters, but that's not who we are. Yeah. It's a it's a very for some people very deeply buried knowledge. And and a lonely knowledge, and that's why it's so gratifying when you hear something or read something that that speaks what you've been whispering to yourself for a long time.

They were just like my mom. Unfortunately, I didn't talk to my dad. My dad pass away before talked to him, but I talked to my mom. I was actually already living here and she was like, when you longtime, they knew the thing is that they felt like it was their fault.

I, I'm not talk more than mescaline type. Interesting to me because I gave game in like feminine men, but you're just thinking about your singer roles you want. So run masculine. Welcome is not. It doesn't work like that. I mean, people still. Yes. This gender roles are still big. Yeah. Yeah. So I would think. I mean, the relationships I've seen is anecdotal, but the relationships I've seen that were gay is usually even in women, I gave women, there's one masculine and feminine. And the thing is that I'm not saying is not possible, or maybe the majoria not necessarily. Okay. So like you could be masculine? Everyone can be feminine in the family guy could be the husband. If you wanna put a role in the wife, you just doesn't. It really doesn't correlate. It isn't matter. Right? So, yeah, Amara talk to more masculine as I mean, I'm not an also respect on.
