“Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behaviour and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.” — Terence McKenna
Psychedelics like psilocybin mushrooms can be used to look into human psychology as microscopes & telescopes are used to look into the micro & macro levels of life.
Psilocybin mushrooms frighten some people because they really do dissolve peoples’ narrow belief systems & get people to see life from a different perspective other than from their individual ego.
