  Shulgin will be seen as the Da Vinci of psychedelics in the future!

  Also, thoroughly impressed with Nat Geo for the quality of this

  amazing documentary! It's so refreshing to see a documentary

  from a big network without any political biasparadoxflip   


Humanity needs clarity. We all need to understand, on a

soul level, what this life is all about. Some also need help

in healing from past traumas. Maybe, just maybe,

psychedelics (when regulated and administered in

controlled, closely monitored environments) are one

  avenue towards that clarity. I've followed Rick Doblin for years and he is

  my own personal and professional hero. The work he has pursued, often

  times against great adversity, is some of the most important work the

  field of mental health has ever seen. He has persevered and is making

  amazing gains in helping the government and society understand that

  there are amazing qualities in some of these "street drugs" that contain

  within them the ability to change lives - Allison Iwata

  I was privileged to spend four days with the Shulgins in a small group at

  Esalen in Big Sur in 1986. They are everything this docu explains. Sasha

  taught me much when we had a chance occasionally to spend some time

  talking alone. He taught me a lot about safety when being a sitter. He was

  open and willing to teach anytime a student was ready. What an

  opportunity that meeting was. Rupert Sheldrake, Terence McKenna,

  Andy Weil and more were there.

TIME - as Professor Brian Cox has suggested in Wonders of Life - for the scientific community

to explain the spirituality which forms the basis of each and everyone of our belief systems 

and as Cox has so succinctly proposed in Human Universe:

‘If there are genes somewhere in the great database of life  that allow wheat to grow with less

water, and the climate becomes more arid, then those genes will be valuable to us. If we lose

particular genes, then we lose them for good. Today, fewer than 150 species of crop are used in

modern agriculture, and 12 of these deliver the majority of the world’s non-meat food supply. 

The overwhelming majority of crop species used throughout human history are no longer

cultivated. They are [thankfully] stored, however, in seed vaults, ready for use if needed’ and

then the extreme importance of the Norwegian ‘Svalbard Global Seed Vault is [as] a back-up;

our insurance policy, ensuring that even if countries lose their seed vaults through natural

disasters, war or simple neglect, then irreplaceable parts of the great genetic database of life

will not be lost with them.’
