Why Psychedelics and Academia Don't Mix

Many people describe the psychedelic experience as the most powerful and meaningful experience of their lives, it often affects them on a multi-dimensional level whether they are consciously aware of what is happening to them or not. They may experience massive expansions of consciousness, miraculous healings, psychological rebirths, spiritual awakenings, religious or mystical experiences, etc., and end up being perplexed as to what has happened to them and how. Even experienced users often struggle to understand the mysterious nature of Magic mushrooms and their own psychedelic experiences. And although scientific research and studies have produced an abundance of data on the benefits of Magic mushrooms and the psychedelic experience, many of their discoveries have led to more questions than answers. The fact that Magic mushrooms can repair broken neurons and rewire the brain may give some physiological insight into how they can improve mental health, but this is only scratching the surface, it cannot explain miraculous healings, psychological rebirths or mystical experiences. It is important to realize that Western society is just now in the process of “discovering” Magic mushrooms, and the folly of most academics stems from their inability (due to ignorance) and/or refusal (due to fear) to acknowledge the Sacred. As valuable and interesting as the scientific data may be, science is just one branch of knowledge, the problem for so many in the West is that their minds are exclusively limited to the scientific perspective. What is really needed in the field of psychedelic research is not necessarily specific knowledge about psychedelic substances or their effects, but an expansion of awareness that acknowledges the realm of the Sacred. However, most academics are a long way from having a spiritual awakening, most of them have not even individuated or achieved any significant level of psychological development. The vast majority of academics in Western society are predominantly unconscious, they are not unique individuals capable of free and independent thought, but rather programmed automatons that are bound to the lies, delusions, limits, impositions, conventions, indoctrination and hive mind of the collective unconscious. This unconscious collective operates in and controls the realm of the mainstream, which is why everything mainstream is basically a farce, whether it’s media, politics or the various fields of academia, most notably science, medicine, history and archeology. The only truly exceptional academics are individuals, and they are rarely acknowledged or admired by the mainstream, they are usually slandered and ostracized by their peers and institutions because of their ability and willingness to think and act beyond the confines of the collective unconscious. They are rarely swayed by public opinion or the demand for conformity and they often hold Truth and integrity in higher esteem than money, honors and acceptance. Consequently, the best and brightest academics are forced to fight to defend their positions, they face tremendous amounts of resistance and hostility, and their works are often overlooked, underrated and forgotten. The mainstream has its own versions of what they consider to be the “best and brightest”, which are those who excel slightly beyond the rest but remain within the confines of the collective unconscious (the exceptionally mediocre). The reason their able to dominate institutions and entire fields of knowledge is due to their superfluous presence and like mindedness, the fact that they share a collective “identity” means that they also share the same vanity, pride, arrogance, etc., and so naturally work in unison to perpetuate the same lies and push the same agendas; they conspire unconsciously. They make a mockery of every field of knowledge and have weaponized institutions in order to control information and manipulate people’s perceptions of reality. Western education is not simply outdated, obsolete and meretricious, it is dangerous. The education system is one of the main driving forces of totalitarianism, the fact that you can remain largely unconscious even after receiving extensive levels of education is appalling to say the least. Trying to learn about Magic mushrooms and the psychedelic experience from academics is like the blind leading the blind, they do not have the knowledge, experience or ability to guide or teach anyone in this domain. They choose to mock, ridicule, dismiss, shun and ignore everything that frightens them, makes them uncomfortable or contradicts their programming, including the Sacred. And trying to study Magic mushrooms without acknowledging the Sacred is absurd and ridiculous. One of the first steps that people should take if they want to learn about Magic mushrooms and the psychedelic experience is to distance themselves from the corrupting influence of society and mainstream education. Most Westerners are deluded by arrogance and pride; they believe their academics and institutions to be infallible and view them as the foremost authorities on everything. The Truth is that these indoctrinated bigots and corrupt institutions have misled people by convincing them that psychedelic substances are drugs, and even worse that they are dangerous.

The Medical Council’s poor defence of its...

Dr Suzanne Crowe, President of the Irish Medical Council (IMC), appeared before the Oireachtas Committee on Assisted Dying on Tuesday and defended their extremely controversial decision to remove the prohibition on doctors deliberately ending a patient’s life from the Council’s ethical code. She denied the charge that the move helps pave the way for euthanasia and asserted that the organisation has no position on the committee’s work as it falls outside the Council’s direct remit. But a body like the IMC ought to have a position on the deliberate killing of patients, surely? Why is the old prohibition no longer in the ethics code? Certanly the IMC agrees that the law can be unethical and can’t blindly follow it in all cases? She also admitted that the Council had not widely consulted doctors before it made the huge changes. In the 2024 revision of the Guide to Professional Conduct and Ethics, the Medical Council made several alterations from the previous edition, including the removal of the phrase: “You must not take part in the deliberate killing of a patient.” Dr. Crowe explained that this change has misinterpreted, emphasising that the guide still mandates doctors to comply and operate within the law. But is this sufficient? This decision has attracted criticism from several hundred doctors and also from Bishop Kevin Doran. Senator Ronan Mullen queried Dr. Crowe about the rationale and process behind this significant change. She responded that the Council’s aim is to provide principles-based guidance rather than a legal code, suggesting that the specific line about not participating in deliberate killing was inconsistent with this approach. She also noted that references to specific treatments, such as assisted reproduction and ionising radiation, were removed to align more with conceptual rather than case-based guidance. However, the removal of the prohibition on killing patients is not about specific treatments but relates to a fundamental principle of medical ethics that dates back to Hippocrates’ obligation “First, do no harm.” This foundational ethical tenet, emphasising healing over harming, has been a consistent feature in previous editions of the Medical Council’s code. The deletion of such a significant ethical principle seemed to lack substantial justification, which Dr. Crowe appeared unable to provide. She admitted that while there was no specific consultation on this particular issue, there was a broader consultation on the overall content of the guide, although many doctors appear to have been unaware it was even taking place. British ethicist David Albert Jones has observed that the new guide contains eight paragraphs on patient privacy protection, highlighting the depth of consideration given to certain aspects of medical ethics while seemingly overlooking the profound implications of removing a long-standing ethical principle from the Medical Council guide. You would have to assume that if the law told doctors to violate patient privacy, the Council would object and denounce the law as unethical. This makes the removal of the prohibition on doctors killing patients all the more disturbing.

Neuralink-Isn’t this a Black Mirror Episode?

I’m not sure why, but I can’t start a conversation, only a “thought.”I keep seeing news related to the first successful human Neuralink implant. I understand that many people could benefit from Neuralink, especially working with stroke patients for so many years. However…it’s still creepy. This was actually my favorite episode of Black Mirror, or one of them. I really like OLD Black Mirror. The new stuff is terrible. This is called Crocodile, if you haven’t seen it. I don’t know anything about the real brain implant, but I assume it’s involving a different part of the brain than the “Recaller?” Episode description: Rob hits a cyclist on a mountain road, killing him; with his companion Mia he throws the body into a lake. Fifteen years later, Rob visits her to talk about sending an anonymous letter to the victim's wife. Afraid the letter would be traced, Mia kills Rob. Later, an insurance investigator Shazia researches an unrelated car accident and learns that Mia saw it out of the window that evening. Shazia uses a "Recaller" to view people's memories as best as they can picture them. Shazia speaks to Mia, who sees Mia's memories of both of her killings, despite Mia trying to stop herself thinking about them. Mia ties Shazia up, uses the Recaller to discover Shazia told her husband about the visit, and kills Shazia. Mia journeys to kill Shazia's husband and also kills their baby son to avoid leaving evidence. However, the son was born blind and the family guinea pig observed Mia, so police track Mia down to her son's school production. Anyway, what do you think, Thinkspot?

Two Types of Relativists

While recently discussing Ruyong Wang’s 2004 unequivocal linearization of the Sagnac effect, I have come to realize there are 2 different philosophical camps of relativists: Covariant relativists do not seem to grasp the problem, or simply ignore and disregard the generalization of the Sagnac effect. Many of them likely don’t understand its implication to their paradigm, and continue to operate under the assumption that Special Relativity provides predictive value over classical mechanics (which it does not). Pure relativists understand the problem of the generalization of the Sagnac effect, and are forced to philosophically embrace a reality which is wholly relative to the observer, and unexplainable in the context of reality, as illustrated below: A QUEST FOR THE ORIGIN OF THE SAGNAC EFFECT - BHADRA, GHOSE, RAYCHAUDHURI - 2022 The important distinction here, is that the covariant relativist believes that Special and General Relativity can be reliably used to make “pre-dictions.” (this is dynamics) The pure relativist has realized, and accepted, that the theories they hold true exclusivley make ad-hoc “post-dictions” (which are kinematic). Pure relativists have accepted the philosphical and religious leap that must be taken, of a universe which is wholly relative to the observer. When one is forced to Lorentz transform a local Sagnac effect, and deny the direct relationship of the velocity of the moving fiber, with the velocity of c, one is forced to deny logic, and take a massive philosphical leap.

The Allais Effect and the Anisotropy of Space

During the solar eclipse of 1954, Nobel laureate Maurice Allais observed anomalous behavior of his pendulum. This effect was named “The Allais Effect,” and subsequent study has been largely neglected, due to a philosphical bias, and the implications of the results. I have been having a hard time finding information about the book Maurice Allais published in 1997: “The Anisotropy of Space: The necessary revision of certain postulates of contemporary theories.” Why is this? Looking at the content, it becomes obvious why modern physics tries to bury Allais’s work, and the anomaly of the Allais effect, as it directly contradicts modern theories: Maurice Allais continued to observe his pendulum over the years, and found that the variations in the precession rate, were relative to the sidereal motion of the Sun and Moon: Maurice Allais had a lot to say about gravity too. Translation: “It is therefore appropriate to consider that the current laws of gravitation are in no way the perfectly verified, definitive, and immutable laws, on which one bases the assertion that my experimental results are contrary to all the experience acquired in the field of astronomy. These laws, like all experimental laws, are only verified with a certain approximation.” Allais also disagreed with Newton: The ISBN of the book is 2-908735-09-1. The book was published in 1997, but according to Wikipedia, it does not exist: It’s important to note, that in 1970, a paper from a Harvard lab was published corroborating Allais’s results, and indicating that they had been measuring the same effects for 17 years. 1970 Solar Eclipse as Seen by a Torsion Pendulum
