Leading minds discuss psychedelics, shamanism, human evolution, and the ecological crisis
• Includes conversations with Duncan Trussell, Graham Hancock, Grant Morrison, Hamilton Morris, Erik Davis, Julia Mossbridge, Rupert Sheldrake, and others
• Explores the possibility of human extinction, Simulation Theory, Virtual Reality and lucid dreaming, space migration, DMT research, and advanced robotics
• Delves deep into the relationship between psychedelics and ecological awareness
The precariousness of our global situation has never been clearer. Between war, inequality, destabilizing advances in technology like AI, and biosphere collapse and climate change, humankind is confronted with an almost insurmountable array of challenges. Yet many brilliant experts are working on outside-the-box solutions, looking to challenges of the past, current ground-breaking research, and psychedelic-inspired visions of the future to lead humanity through these crises.
In a series of conversations with leading minds in consciousness studies, psychedelic culture, anthropology, chemistry, and other disciplines, author David Jay Brown elicits answers to some of the most thought-provoking questions about our origins, our present situation, and the future of humanity and the Earth. Brown and these luminaries explore topics as diverse as the possibility of human extinction, the relationship between psychedelics and ecological consciousness, Simulation Theory, Virtual Reality and lucid dreaming, the consciousness-altering effects of the pandemic, space migration and contact with alien intelligence, and DMT research and advanced robotics.
Whether he’s speaking to podcaster Duncan Trussell about the Singularity, comic book author Grant Morrison about magick and the occult, or neuroscientist Julia Mossbridge about psychic phenomena, Brown’s spirited interview approach helps draw profound insights from these cutting-edge thinkers. What, he asks, are the implications of our understanding of consciousness, particularly altered states—and how might entheogens help raise ecological awareness to impact the future of our species? In this curated collection of interviews, Brown seeks to find out.
