Magic Mushrooms

"As a prodrug, psilocybin is quickly converted by the body to psilocin, which has mind-altering effects similar (in some aspects) to those of LSD, mescaline, and DMT. In general, the effects include euphoria, visual and mental hallucinations, changes in perception, a distorted sense of time, and spiritual experiences, and can include possible adverse reactions such as nausea and panic attacks."

Part of what psychedelics do is they decondition you from cultural values. This is what makes it such a political hot potato.Since all culture is a kind of con game,the most dangerous candy you can hand out is one which causes people to start questioning the rules of the game.

Because for me, that’s the point of doing any of these substances… is to have closer contact with God, or closer contact with Spirit, or primordial awareness— whatever name you want to give to the sort of boundless ground of primordial presence that we are each an extension of. And it’s also to reacquaint you with that mystic reality… you know, to reassure you that there are infinite dimensions of awareness. I always think of those states as, “Here’s your teaching. Here’s what you need to work on.” It’s like your unconscious or your superconscious is giving you an assignment: “You have to see this now.”
