  1. Great episode Greg. I loved the Anthony Peake interview and I love how you continue to seek truth in the unspeakable realms. You have an interesting outlook discussing the results of your psychedelic exploration.

    Are we all God? What should we do if we realize we’re all one? How can activists overcome those delusional with ego problems?

    Keep up the great work and probing questions. I love to hear experts answer questions that are essentially beyond one right answer.

    Psychedelics definitely should be treated as a coming-of-age ritual; I don’t know how we get there, but the discussion needs to be brought to the table.

    …These symptoms suggested that our evolution, I suppose, from the animal kingdom into the human kingdom itself was catalyzed, or triggered by our encounter with these hallucinogenics, and…

    …Yes, we are an ape with a symbiotic relationship to a mushroom, and that has given us self reflection, language, religion and all the spectrum of effects that flow from these things…

    …And one can only wonder how these hallucinogens might effect our future evolution as well…

    [Second voice again]
    …They have brought us to this point, and as we make our relationship to them conscious, we may be able to take control of our future evolutionary path… ”

    I have always believed these statements to be true, and i know eventually someday whether in recent future or in some distant age from now mankind will soon discover his forgotten true relation with the “sacred herb” that was always very profoundly worshiped and revered in prehistoric times, but corruption has slowly rotten that divine knowledge
