“Remember. All I’m offering is the truth. Nothing Else.” – Morpheus, The Matrix
Are we merely sentient programs, bound from birth to death to the directives of our masters and the chains of the Matrix? Or are we multi-dimensional beings, continuously striving for deeper and deeper connection to spirit, whether conscious or not of this automatic effort? What tools have we been given to find the answers to these questions, and why are they prohibited?
Medicine For The Matrix
Full-spectrum dominance of our well-being is carried out by the joint efforts of government, corporations, social engineering programs, consumer training through marketing and peer pressure, the modern medical establishment, and the entertainment industrial complex.
The definition of ‘medicine’ has been co-opted in recent decades by the pharmaceutical paradigm which seeks to find only symptoms then sell us temporary masks for those symptoms… for insane profit. For the entirety of human history up to the present, medicine has been an integral part of human life, as important as air, food and water, and the purpose of healing has always been to drill straight down to the root of an issue and resolve it completely, once and for all.
A singular part of what has popularly become known as ‘the Matrix,’ the corporate/medical establishment has become the chief prison warden of the mind, body and spirit, whose role it is to incarcerate us in a state of degraded physical, mental, and spiritual health. This is the slave master that keeps us in line when the symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, sickness and despair, the results of our enslavement to the Matrix, become so overwhelming that we seek external help for survival.
For centuries, millennia even, human kind has depended on medicine in it’s natural, not chemical forms, and now a total shift towards dependence on prescription based medicine has re-trained us to shun the very cures which have the most potential to liberate us into health and happiness. There is no doubt that those self-tasked with permitting which remedies are available in our society have a vested interest in keeping us locked into this paradigm, for, a person who has knowledge of self and access to the medicines which most properly serve and honour our individuality is inescapably free.
“You’re a ghost, driving a meat skeleton made of stardust on a rock hurtling through space.” -Unknown
Human beings have two inherent identities. Most familiar to us is the visceral human form that binds us to the material world in flesh and bone, acting as transport for mind and spirit in our journey from birth to death. The higher self, our soul, is the part of us which exists infinitely as cosmic consciousness, fuelled by love, knowing everything at once and for all, existing in total freedom from the constraints of time and space.
“We, as humans, live simultaneously in 2 worlds. I will refer to these 2 worlds as the physical world and the spirit world. These 2 worlds exist simultaneously and both worlds are wrapped around and through the other. To understand Life, one must know what is happening in both worlds.
We are all very familiar with this physical world. We are aware of it through our 5 physical senses: sight, sound, touch, taste and smell. Everything we perceive through these senses tells us about the nature of physical world.
But we also have senses that allow us to know the nature of the spirit world such as intuition and spiritual vision seen through the ‘third eye.’ Generally speaking, most people don’t understand these senses or how to use them to understand what is happening in the spirit world. In most cultures outside of central Africa, most people have forgotten how to use these senses. As a result, the senses of the physical world become dominant and only under unusual conditions are these spiritual senses realized.” – Gary Cook, Iboga Wellness
The Matrix has as its primary objective the task of disconnecting us from the soul and the extreme aggrandizement of the material, so that we may be used as batteries and as automatons to fuel the lavish existences of our controllers. It achieves this through desensitization by overexposure to violence, hatred, fear, pollution and scarcity, while limiting deep connection to each other, to nature, and to the most humane experiences.
Acts of terror are amplified, echoed and repeated in the mainstream media, while the achievements of love and compassion are minimized, ridiculed and diminished in their meaning and significance.
We are prevented from realizing the depths of our enslavement by the limits placed on our spiritual discovery, rarely if ever able to even glimpse at the totality of the damage that has been inflicted upon the psyche by the continual bombardment of fear, conflict, war and nihilism. Our shock is weapon zed and used against us, and we find little, if any, solace, in the corrupt and tired religious traditions of the modern world.
Pharmaceuticals, by design, dull the emotional being and narrow the range of human feeling. Alcohol is recommended and pimped in our culture to further numb the senses and amplify negativity. Food is denatured, devoid of nutrition, and poisoned to weaken the body and darkly color the mind.
As shining examples of success, those that do the most damage to the natural environment are held in great esteem as pioneers of capitalism, teaching us the false value of trading life for profit and encouraging disrespect for that which sustains us.
Our communities and infrastructure have been engineered to discourage human interaction because without an abundance of human contact we are unable to fully grasp the true state of the human condition: despair. We only take notice of the outer appearances of our brothers and sisters, their consumer adornments and their extrinsic, soulless possessions, thus we predictably over-appreciate material accomplishments.
The rich human history of relation to spirit, and the triumphs of the heart are continuously erased and supplanted with memories of conquest and destruction, the worst of all human endeavours. All of this horror is pumped into the psyche without reprieve, deepening the abyss of our condition.
The Real ‘Red Pill’
“Unfortunately no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.” -Morpheus, The Matrix
There is a genuine ‘Red Pill‘ that reveals, confronts and combats the tyranny of the matrix and each of its attempts to debilitate the mind, body and spirit. It is called iboga, and it is prohibited by law in most western nations.
For perhaps thousands of years, the root bark of the rather unassuming jungle shrub, tabernanthe iboga has been consumed by indigenous rainforest cultures of ecuatorial Africa as a medicine and teacher for life. It’s usage is not complicated, however, it’s effect on the human being is simply indescribable with language, something that can only be understood through direct experience.
Under the guidance of a proper shaman, the bark from the plant’s roots is scraped, collected and ingested…
“…opening up an introspective experience where a connection is made with an over-soul or cosmic consciousness that assists the mind in a deep examination of the self from an objective, omniscient and timeless perspective. In this, a process of self-revelation unfolds which unravels one’s past, offering life-changing insights and liberation from accumulated self-judgments and harmful thought patterns.
For 12-24 hours the patient lies still, with blindfolded eyes, in a bizarre dream-like state where the brain behaves as if in REM sleep, but, while the conscious mind remains awake, very alert and able to interact with and direct the content of the mental journey.
As the experience deepens, the barrier between the conscious and sub-conscious mind seems to dissolve, and the information in the sub-conscience becomes available for review and rejection by the reflective self. In this, a lifetime’s worth of learned mental processes, memories, emotional impressions, false judgments and psychological conditioning that combine to inform and instruct the self are presented to the patient in rapid fire fashion… a sort of high velocity behind-the-scenes tour of one’s personality. A multi-dimensional impression of one’s character emerges, and they are given an incredible opportunity to re-assess or reject misunderstood feelings, traumatic events, implanted suggestions, negative self-images, and habitual behaviors.” -Dylan Charles, Opiates, Iboga and the Roots of Self-Destruction
Full-Specturm Matrix Deprogramming
The type of multi-dimensional self-revelation and curative introspection brought forth by a spiritual journey of this magnitude has three fundamental properties: physical healing, spiritual healing and spiritual discovery.
Attacking at once every pillar of the Matrix, revealing in vivid, high-definition clarity its various strangleholds on the sub-conscious, it is common for westerners to experience their first journey as a heavy, full-spectrum examination of the most warped and damning contents that infect the mind and spirit.
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction, one that we are encouraged to feel, but discouraged to confront. Iboga cuts right through our reluctance to stare into this abyss, presenting the initiate with a visceral opportunity to dive into the harsh truth that we carry buried with us in our daily lives. Through an intoxicating spiritual trance, iboga can behave as a semi-automatic, virtual-reality, worse-case-scenario generator of sorts, allowing us to finally see just how disturbed and jaded we’ve become and how thoroughly we are able to cover and conceal our darkness. All the horrors the haunt us from behind the veil of consciousness are finally brought into the light.
Renowned for its ability to cleanse and decalcify the pineal, opening wide the third eye, iboga reaches out to us in crystal clear inner vision, allowing us to see with intense clarity the events, memories and repressed suggestions, that subjugate our goodness and harden the heart.
Highly respected as well for its effective and hasty treatment of PTSD, iboga unlocks the cages within the mind that limit our capacity to see beyond the terrors of being human in these troubling times. Trauma, such as the kind suffered in violence and sexual abuse, is exposed, then rendered powerless in the process of bearing full witness.
Revered for its ability to interrupt addiction to drugs, self-destructive behaviours and toxic thought processes, the medicine offers desperate liberation for those stuck in perpetual conflict with themselves. The highly alkaline shamanic medicine also performs a complete physical and mental detox, leaving in its wake lightness and ease in the body, along with intense mental clarity and focus.
Leading Us Home
As an entheogenic plant medicine that permits direct contact and consultation with an ancient earthly and unmistakably benevolent spirit, once the heaviness of our contemporary existence is uncovered and diffused, to complete the journey, iboga reveals its true nature of loving intention to the participant. First expanding the lower, darker ranges of our human experience, it springs us from the traps which bind and hold us back, with the aim of freeing us into the stunning totality of our highest selves.
To do so, it takes us soaring into the vast and limitless cosmos of the self to find, hold council with, seek guidance and forgiveness from, and re-connect with our very own individual soul, as well as the souls of our ancestors, so that we may recapture our personal history, and experience the unconditional love that is the true foundation of being human.
The end result is liberation and enduring happiness.
It is precisely due to this genuinely holistic capacity to heal and enlighten that our rat-race, driven-from-the-top culture has shunned, persecuted and even outlawed the usage of iboga: for the matrix cannot and will not permit freedom of this depth and significance.
The matrix simply cannot have a world full of free-spirited, happy souls, for it is impossible to enslave someone who lives with certainty of their own power and purpose, liberated from fear and loving of the self.

Doctor Explains The Pineal Gland & Its Destruction By Toxic Chemicals (Video)
The pineal gland, which is also known by many cultures as the third eye or the seat of the soul, is located in your brain and many believe that this is the gateway to the afterlife. Dimethyl-tryptamine (DMT) is produced here naturally and is released in small amounts when we dream and when we die.
Many mystics and cultures around the world believe that this gland is our direct connection to our higher selves, or consciousness. Unfortunately, various chemicals in our environment have been shown to block access to this gland, which in turn can make it more difficult to connect to our spiritual nature and thus, our true selves.
Meet Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt is Founder of the Klinghardt Academy (USA), the American Academy of Neural Therapy, Medical Director of the Institute of Neurobiology, and lead clinician at the Sophia Health Institute, located in Woodinville, Washington. He is also Founder and Chairman of the Institute for Neurobiology in Germany and Switzerland. Klinghardt Academy (USA) provides teachings to the English-speaking world on biological interventions and Autonomic Response Testing assessment techniques.
Klinghardt has lectured at the universities of Illinois, Utah, Freiburg, Adelaide, Capital University (Washington DC) and others, and the medical schools of Geneva and Zurich. Between 1996 and 2005, he was Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Neurobiology at Capital University. He is regularly invited to teach workshops at the prestigious Medicine Week in Baden-Baden, Germany and the International Lyme and Associated Diseases (ILADS) conferences. Among his books is the ground-breaking Psychokinesiology “A new Approach in Psychosomatic Medicine” on muscle feedback-guided psychotherapy. Many of his teachings, manuals, seminar DVD’s and clinical tools are available through his website www.klinghardtacademy.com.
In the following video, Dr. Klinghardt shares his concerns for the various environmental factors that are affecting our pineal glands directly.
This video serves as a reminder to us all to be aware of these toxins–what we are putting into our bodies and exposing ourselves to.
“The pineal gland is the most sensitive part of our central nervous system and it is highly sensitive to 4 things: aluminium, glyphosate, fluoride and WiFi.”
More Interesting Info
At the Third International Symposium on Vaccines in March 2014 and as part of the 9th International Congress on Autoimmunity, MIT scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff gave a presentation titled “A Role for the Pineal Gland in Neurological Damage Following Aluminum-adjuvanted Vaccination.”
In her heavily cited paper, she explains how many common neurological disorders, like Autism and Parkinson’s, for example, have a common origin. These are: an insufficient supply of sulphate to the brain and enhanced toxic metal exposure (e.g., aluminium, mercury) due to our impaired ability to detoxify and eliminate them. She also shows that such metals interfere with sulphate synthesis, causing cellular debris to accumulate.
It goes on to explain that Heparan sulphate in the lysosomes is critical for recycling cellular debris, garbage, and damage that could lead to disease. Multiple studies have shown that a deficiency in Heparan sulphate levels leads to autism. In summary, the paper points to the idea that autism and Alzheimer’s disease, rates of which continue to rise, are caused by a severe deficiency in sulphate supplies to the brain, and that the Pineal Gland, which Rene Descartes called “the seat of the soul” can synthesize sulphate stimulated by sunlight, and deliver it via melatonin sulphate. Aluminium, mercury, and glyphosate, working together, can derail this process. They work synergistically.
In conclusion, the researchers state:
“In this paper, we have developed the argument that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup, and aluminum, a pervasive toxic metal in our environment, operate synergistically to induce dysfunction in the pineal gland leading to the sleep disorder that is characteristic of multiple neurological diseases, including autism, ADHD, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, anxiety disorder and Parkinson’s disease. We further argue that impaired supply of melatonin and sulphate to the brain as a consequence of pineal damage can explain how the disrupted sleep can lead to more general neurological damage, and we propose that this is a significant component of the disease process. The steady increase in glyphosate usage on corn and soy crops aligns remarkably well with the increase in sleep disorder and in autism, as well as other neurological diseases. We have shown how disruption of CYP enzymes and promotion of anemia and hypoxia, due to both aluminium and glyphosate, and disruption of gut bacteria by glyphosate, can cause a pathology leading to deficiencies in both melatonin and sulphate in the cerebrospinal fluid that is characteristic of autism and Alzheimer’s disease. Insufficient sulphate leads to impaired lysosomal recycling of cellular debris, and insufficient melatonin leads to sleep disorder, vascular disease and impaired protection from ROS damage in the brain.”
So, What Can We Do?
As he says, he hopes that this is just a coincidence that all of these factors combined are so destructive to our pineal glands, but are there really any coincidences? Thankfully, we can avoid some of these contaminants.
Take fluoride for example, some of us, especially if we are living in Europe, excluding the UK, or many areas of Canada, don’t have to worry about fluoride in our water, but unfortunately most Americans don’t have this luxury. There are various water filters that will remove fluoride, and buying filtered water such as distilled or reverse osmosis is an option as well.
In terms of glyphosate, a pesticide used abundantly in modern agriculture, a very simple solution to this is to switch to organic produce and to drastically limit or avoid processed foods, specifically genetically modified organisms (GMOs). I understand that organic produce can be expensive, in which case just do your best! Consider using the Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen lists for your reference to know which foods should always be purchased organic and which ones aren’t that big of a deal.
WiFi– This one is a bit trickier, as it is pretty much everywhere! Most of us have it in our houses, and it can be found virtually everywhere in cities. Of course, you can always go back to a good old wired internet connection, but unless you are living out in the middle of nowhere, you can’t really escape it completely. This is why it’s a good idea to spend time away from screens and practice grounding (walking on the bare earth with no shoes, hugging trees, swimming in natural bodies of water) as often as you can. This will help to ground your energy and emit negative ions into your body. Just being in nature, away from WiFi, for an extended period of time or as often as you can will certainly do your body good, and your mind and spirit!
In terms of aluminium — this one is tricky… aluminium is found in many foods, many prescription drugs, vaccines and chemtrails. Luckily, we can detox aluminium from the body by following safe protocols and do what we can to limit our exposure from environmental factors.
As the doctor said, these 4 factors combined are what cause the most damage, so if we can do what we can to drastically limit our exposure to them as much as possible then that’s a huge step in the right direction. It’s also important to know that the information provided here is not designed to be a scare tactic or to leave you in fear, it’s meant to raise awareness and empower you to make the best decisions for the health and safety of you and your loved ones.
The first step towards change is awareness, and in order to create any sort of change we need to first be aware.

It’s All Bullshit – But Knowing It Sets You Free
Gary Z McGee, The Mind Unleashed
“We should go and proclaim without cease and remind people at every step of what we are: that our capacity for self-delusion has no limits and that anybody who believes anything is mistaken.” ~Czesla Milosz
Authentic growth requires conflict. Your precious beliefs must come up against a question mark as sharp as Occam’s Razor, or you will inadvertently fall into a prison of intellectual and spiritual stagnation.
Allow the razor-sharp question-mark to slice and dice its way through the beliefs you cling to for dear life. Allow it to shed the superfluous-certainty away from the juicy-uncertainty of what you believe to be true. The alternative is remaining stuck in fixed and rigid thinking. The alternative is being buried in all the bullshit.
Why is it all bullshit? Simply because we live in a meaningless universe. Now, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t create our own meaning despite this fact, it just means that despite whatever meaning we manage to create, we will still always be living in a meaningless universe. No matter the created meaning, that meaning will always be “bullshit” (some things less bullshit than other things, of course) in the grand scheme of things. And that’s okay. It must be okay if we are to get out of our own way as a species and progressively evolve in a healthy way. We just have to keep it in perspective that it’s all bullshit to some degree or other.
But don’t take my word for it. Do your own research. Be imaginative. Do your own deep questioning. Find your own epistemological crisis. Discover your own reason to use Occam’s Razor.
I’d lend you McGee’s Guillotine but I’m using it to write Self-inflicted Philosophy. So far, I’m only certain about the last sentence of the thousand-page treatise on the human condition. And it’s this: Then again, I could be full of shit.
Question Your Delusions:
“The human mind is a delusion generator, not a window to truth. The best any human can do is to pick a delusion that helps him get through the day.” ~Scott Adams
We’re all delusional to some degree or another. But some people are more delusional than others. Those who are more delusional tend to get caught up in their delusions. They tend to dependently cling to them and become rigidly dogmatic.
But some people are less delusional than others. They are the ones who make a point of questioning their own delusions first and the delusions of others second. They are strategically sceptical and open-minded, using logic, reasoning, and the law of probability like scalpels on the confused psychology of the human condition.
As far as allowing the journey to be the thing, the difference between questioning rather than clinging to one’s delusions is vital.
Don’t be a clinger. Be a questioner. Be curious about the human condition. Have a sense of humour about it. Keep your question-mark sharp and ready to cut through any amount of bullshit that comes at you. Especially your own.
Cull The Cult Of Positivity:
“These mountains that you’re carrying, you were only supposed to climb.” – Najwa Zebian
Happiness is overrated. “Good vibes only” is just plain laziness. Get out from underneath the burden of needing to be happy and positive all the time. That’s too much weight to be carrying around. Take it easy on yourself. Stop being so damn serious all the time. Especially about happiness, positivity, and love. You’re not perfect and you never will be.
Your “love & light” could use a little “tough love & darkness.” Forcing yourself to be positive and happy all the time is just an ego trap set up by the scared-shitless part of you that doesn’t want to face the shittyness of life. It’s a strategic safe zone propped up by your cowardice and weakness.
Stop sugar-coating your bullshit. Stop demonizing sadness. You cannot be happy all the time. Happiness, like sadness, is a passing storm across the sky of the Self. Some storms are refreshing and invigorating, like happiness. Some are painful and rough, like sadness. Both can be overwhelming. And both are merely information. They just happen to be information that you “feel.”
As far as information goes, pain and sadness will teach you more than comfort and happiness ever will. Use that information to make yourself healthier, and happiness will become a convenient by-product of your self-improvement. The best you can do is hope for the best and be prepared for the worst. And nothing prepares you for the worst better than the vital information gleaned from pain and sadness.
Transform Your “Triggers” Into Curiosity:
“When an honest man realizes that he is mistaken, he will either cease being mistaken or cease being honest.” ~Unknown
Are you a precious little snowflake who gets triggered all the time (perhaps even the word “snowflake” triggers you)? Perhaps shock value art triggers you? Perhaps satire triggers you? Perhaps anything “the other side” says triggers you?
Transform your triggers into curiosity. Ask yourself: why do I feel so emotional about this petty little thing in the grand scheme of things? Is it merely a knee-jerk reaction due to my cultural conditioning, political bias, or religious brainwashing? Am I experiencing cognitive dissonance, or any number of other psychological fallacies? Am I reacting out of fear, cowardice, ignorance? Have I lost perspective that it’s all bullshit, especially my own beliefs? Am I capable of being brutally honest with myself?
Dig deep. Be playful about it. Have a sense of humour. Being curious about something, rather than just triggered by it, is always more rewarding. You will always gain more from a curious experience over a triggered one.
It’s a kind of emotional alchemy. Feel the trigger, honour it, let it fill you with petty anger and misguided rage, and then turn the tables on it by becoming curious about why it makes you feel so raw. Feel triggered, just act with curiosity. You may discover something about yourself that being triggered alone would never have revealed.
Don’t Take It Personal, Make It Motivational:
“Never relinquish your ability to doubt, reflect, and consider other options –your rationality as an individual is your only protection against the madness that can overcome a group.” ~Robert Greene
Do you have the tendency to take yourself or your beliefs too seriously? Do you cling to the precious bullshit of your beliefs so tightly that you feel injured at the slightest bit of pushback from other more questioning, nondogmatic, outside-the-box thinkers?
Get over yourself. Full stop! Get out of your own way. Let go of your ego’s attachment to your beliefs. Your current belief system is a rickety bridge built on quicksand at best. It’s stopgap pretense at worst.
But, and here’s the rub: that’s okay! Have a laugh at yourself. It’s okay to admit that you don’t have it figured out and neither did the fallible humans who came before you and created the flimsy structure of your belief.
Nobody has anything figured out. We are all fumbling, stumbling, fallible, imperfect beasts with big brains vainly attempting to pigeonhole our beliefs into untenable boxes that we lord over each other with ignorant terms such as “sacrilege” and “Satan” and “my god is the one true god.”
The key to staying ahead of the curve when it comes to bullshit (whether it’s yours or someone else’s) is to realize, deep down—balls to bones, ovaries to marrow—that nobody has anything solid figured out about the universe and the way it works. No religion, ideology, philosophy, or politics has the answer. It’s all questionable. It’s all precarious.
Question it all. Don’t take it personally. Make it motivational instead by daring yourself to question things to the nth degree. Don’t take yourself so seriously. Self-improve instead. Keep your bullshit and the bullshit of others in perspective by constantly reminding yourself that nobody (no matter how “enlightened”) and no ideology (no matter how “sacred”) will ever have the answers? Realize that the only “answer” is to question all answers (including this one, ad infinitum).

Humanity Is Not Sleeping; It’s In An Induced Coma
Caitlin Johnstone, Guest Writer
In the late 1960s, the sudden widespread availability of psychedelics combined with the circulation of eastern philosophy to the west to begin a radical transformation of human consciousness. Our species, desperate to transcend the residual trauma from two world wars and the existential terror of the nuclear age, began moving into a wildly unprecedented relationship with its capacity for abstract thought.
For the first time ever, humans began disentangling themselves from egoic consciousness on a mass scale, suddenly using thought as the useful tool it’s meant to be rather than the life-dominating addiction that it had become up until that point. World leaders not only permitted this transformation but actively facilitated it, realizing from their own encounters with this new revolution that humanity relinquishing its egoic mental constrictions opened up the possibility for the creation of paradise on earth.
As we became less egocentric, our values and interests changed. This led to changes in the way we vote, in the kinds of media we chose to consume, and in the kinds of ideas which were popularized.
This set the stage for the next level of human evolution in the arrival of the internet. For the first time in history humans were able to network their minds all around the world in real time, by the thousands, then by the millions, then by the billions. Our harmonious relationship with our inner world suddenly segued smoothly into the ability to develop a harmonious relationship with our outer world, no longer confined by space and time in sharing ideas and information with each other.
With clear minds networked in a truly democratic way we were quickly able to identify and solve all the remaining problems in our world, and we saw ourselves transitioning into a collaborative relationship with each other and with our ecosystem which gave us all a quality of life that had been unimaginable up until a few decades ago.
Now, here in 2019, all human creativity and ingenuity goes toward finding new ways to help us survive and thrive and understand. Technological innovation, once mostly stagnated in the cognitive cul-de-sacs of figuring out new ways to exploit and dominate each other and commit more efficient acts of mass military violence, is now flourishing and expanding at an exponential rate. We have indeed created Heaven on earth together.
that was just a dream I had.
It could have gone down like that. There’s no reason it couldn’t have. Maybe in a parallel universe it did. But, here in this timeline, it didn’t.
Here in this timeline, the people in power wanted to remain in power thank you very much, even if it meant making life worse for everyone in the long run, including themselves.
Here in this timeline, we had all the medicine we needed to cure our sickness, but we were forbidden from using it.
Here in this timeline, plutocrats bought up all the media so they can tell us every day how important it is to continue bolstering the status quo, and that the only thing up for debate is what strategies we should use to do so.
Here in this timeline they got us dependent on money, and then devalued it to ensure that we’re working harder and harder for less and less so we have no time to expand our consciousness of our inner or outer worlds.
Here in this timeline psychedelics were made as illegal as heroin or cocaine, and their use was stigmatized as a dangerous activity for criminals and degenerates.
Here in this timeline, control of the internet was quickly shored up by plutocratic interests and government agencies, and traffic is now directed toward authorized platforms sharing authorized narratives which bolster the status quo and manufacture consent for establishment agendas.
Here in this timeline, we had all the tools to escape this prison, but they were taken from us and replaced with more prison bars. Taken by people who were more clever than the rest of us, and who had enough money and influence to shut the whole thing down.
For some weird reason I found myself watching a spiritual guru-type guy discussing his political views on a video yesterday, and, like most spiritual guru-type people, his view of our political reality was highly malnourished. He kept talking about how all our problems are the result of humanity being deeply unconscious, and how that unconsciousness leads us to elect deeply unconscious leaders. Like “elected leaders” are the ones calling the shots. No mention of plutocrats, opaque government agencies or propaganda; the only problem, according to spiritual guru-type guy, is that we’re all equally asleep at the wheel and all equally responsible for what’s going on.
Spiritual guru-type guy is wrong. Humanity is not sleeping. Humanity is in an induced coma.
If our society had simply been permitted to progress along its natural trajectory at a natural pace and to use the innovations that we’d discovered in a natural way, we would all be wide awake by now. The psychedelic revolution would have continued and matured and grown into adulthood instead of being murdered in its infancy, and our exponentially increasing ability to network and share information would have coupled with our mature consciousness to build a deeply awakened society that benefits every living creature on this planet. That would have happened, and it is only because of the unnatural interference of a very few deeply unwise people that we stayed locked in the matrix, now faced with the looming threat of near term human extinction.
This is a crime against humanity which far surpasses all of the most egregious atrocities in any history book. What these people have done to us, what they have taken from us, what they have twisted us into, is an offense so profoundly evil that it cries out to the heavens for vengeance.
The good news, if there is any to be had, is that there are still more of us than there are of them, and that all the tools they took from us are still there to be used if we care enough to take them back.
A woman once had an LSD trip in which she realized the illusory nature of the separate self, seeing clearly that she’d been living in a dream world her entire life up until that point. The effects of the entheogen wore off, and she convinced herself that it was just a pleasant drug high. She made herself forget it, plunged herself into her career, got a promotion, got a husband, got a nice two-story house in the suburbs at 4.5% interest, got some kids, and got plenty of stress but whatever there’s always wine.
Decades later, after finding nothing but suffering along her chosen life trajectory, she began thinking about that LSD trip she took way back when. She began wondering if maybe that strange, sacred experience had been real after all. If, maybe, it was the only real thing that had ever happened to her.
That’s kind of where our whole species is at right now. A door opened up in the sixties which was very quickly and violently slammed shut, and now there are independent flickerings all around the world of that strange, sacred light that still shines under the crack of that door. We still have the ability to open it up again. We’ve only got to want it enough.

Israeli Researcher Says Moses Was High On Psychedelics When He Spoke To God
John Vibes, Truth Theory
Some researchers claim that Moses and the Israelites were on drugs during their legendary quest across the desert. According to Benny Shanon, an Israeli professor of cognitive philosophy at Hebrew University, this detail could explain the vision in which Moses received the Ten Commandments from God.
This theory may also explain that the “burning bush” in the bible is not a literal bush on fire, but a bush that creates a figurative fire in the mind. Shannon says that the components needed to make the psychedelic brew ayahuasca are native to the Sinai Peninsula, just as they are in the Amazon where the brew is more popular.
“As far as Moses on Mount Sinai is concerned, it was either a supernatural cosmic event, which I don’t believe, or a legend, which I don’t believe either, or finally, and this is very probable, an event that joined Moses and the people of Israel under the effects of narcotics,” Shannon told Israel Radio.
In The Book of Exodus, the encounter that Moses has with God is marked by thunder, lightning and blaring trumpets, which is similar to the visions described by people under the influence of psychedelics.
In addition to the burning bush being a metaphor, Shannon says that it could have also been a literal hallucination.
“In advanced forms of ayahuasca inebriation. the seeing of light is accompanied by profound religious and spiritual feelings,” Shannon says.
Shannon has admitted that he is speaking from experience, as he tried ayahuasca at least once while traveling in the Amazon in 1991.
“Encountering the divine is one of the most powerful experiences associated with high-level Ayahuasca inebriation,” Shannon told the Guardian.
These theories are controversial among religious scholars, but psychedelic drugs and spirituality have gone hand in hand since the beginning of recorded history, in many different cultures across the world.
The taboo associated with altered states of consciousness is a very new idea in human history. Our ancestors looked at drugs as just another part of life and often sought religious experiences through intoxication.
According to a study from the Psychedelic Research Group at Imperial College London, published in the journal Psychopharmacology, psychedelic mushrooms tend to make people more resistant to authority. They also found the psychedelic experience induced by these mushrooms also because people to be more connected with nature.
It was announced last year that a startup called Compass Pathways had received approval from The Food and Drug Administration to develop treatments for depression, and possibly even pharmaceuticals, with psilocybin, the active ingredient in psychedelic “magic mushrooms.”
Compass Pathways launched in the UK in 2016 thanks to funding from PayPal founder Peter Thiel. While the company is just now receiving approval to run trials in the US, they were already approved in Canada, the Netherlands and at their base of operations in the UK.
It is also possible that psychedelics could be legalized in different jurisdictions across the US in upcoming elections.
Activists in Denver have recently proposed a legal measure that would do away with felony charges for people caught in possession of mushrooms and over the past year, they have been collecting signatures to get the measure put on the city’s election ballot.
Activists have managed to gather thousands of signatures, which is enough to put the initiative on the ballot in May. Kevin Matthews, campaign director for Decriminalize Denver, believes that the tides of public opinion are turning against prohibition.
“I think it’s going to be pretty big. There are a lot of people throughout our country that want to see the drug policy laws change around psychedelics and psilocybin in particular,” Matthews said.
