Psychedelics And Consciousness

What is psychedelics?

The word ‘Psychedelic’ originates from the greek words ‘Psyche’ which means ‘Mind’ or ‘Soul’ & ‘Delos’ which means to ‘Manifest’ or ‘Make Visible’ … Psychedelic means Mind Manifesting !

The word Psychedelic was coined by Humphrey Osmond (Jul 1, 1917 – Feb 6, 2004) back in 1957 in a letter he wrote to Aldous Huxley suggesting an alternative descriptor for hallucinogenic drugs in the context of psychedelic psychotherapy.

Psychedelic drugs can cause hallucinations and even induce a psychotic state when they are taken in large enough doses. But psychedelic drugs can also be used to alter one’s perceptions or state of mind.

Psychedelics can also aid in finding creative solutions when taken in sufficiently small doses.

“Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window.

They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.”Terence McKenna


The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on The Tibetan Book of the Dead (commonly referred to as The Psychedelic Experience)

This version of Tibetan Book of the Dead was authored by Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner and Richard Alpert, all of whom took part in experiments investigating the therapeutic and religious possibilities of drugs such as mescaline, psilocybin and LSD. The book is dedicated to Aldous Huxley and includes a short introductory citation from Huxley’s book The Doors of Perception.

Psychedelics: An Illegal Experience

“When the state sends us to prison for essentially exploring our own consciousness, this is a grotesque abuse of human rights. It’s a fundamental wrong. If I as an adult am not sovereign over my own consciousness, then I am absolutely not sovereign over anything. I can’t claim any kind of freedom at all. And what has happened over the last forty or fifty years under the disguise of the war on drugs, is that we have been persuaded to hand over the keys of our consciousness to the state. The most precious, the most intimate, the most sapien part of ourselves, the state now has the keys. And furthermore, they’ve persuaded us that that’s in our interests. This is a very dangerous situation.”Graham Hancock
