Psychedelics. They say they are gateways to higher consciousness. But is this true? Is there even such thing as a “higher consciousness?” What defines higher consciousness? A lot of ancient cultures and civilizations regarded higher consciousness as sacred. Egyptians for example. They often used the blue lotus in teas which led to psychedelic experiences. Only certain individuals were allowed to experience these things such as shamans, elders, etc. Although, today’s society seems to have stigmatized psychedelics. The government has outlawed them and has made it very difficult for anyone to find or use them. Terence McKenna cover this a lot.
Could humanity as we know it be a byproduct of psychedelics? Terence McKenna also talked about his hypothesis when it came to the development of our evolution and ultimately humanity. He believed in the “Stoned Ape Theory”. The Stoned Ape theory argues that the effects of psilocybin cubensis played a pivotal role in the evolution of the species. Increased clarity of vision would make hunting easier and increased sexual desire would mean they were more prolific. This idea has its flaws, but it could all be possible. McKenna also stated the effects of magic mushrooms on modern humans, stimulating the language portion of the brain and inducing religious experiences that would have opened the path towards behavioral modernity.
The conspiracy is obviously that the government wants to keep us under control. If psychedelics open us and help us achieve a higher state of consciousness, we could ultimately revolt again them or whatever higher power are at work. The reason I say this is because for example the drugs they allow us to take make us dependent on them. The drugs they prescribe people are harsher and have worse side effects than the disorders or diseases they are treating. Alcohol for example. It is a drug that I believe is used for population control. It has the worse side effects possible. It impairs your motor skills, your judgement skills, and it is a depressant. Now we look at psilocybin, after just 1 dose 6 months after can cure depression. But it is illegal.
I have personally never done any psychedelics, but it is so interesting to me. I have heard Joe Rogan talk about DMT numerous times. I believe it is no coincidence that everyone who does DMT has a similar experience. You hear about these “deities” people encounter on the other side after doing DMT and how they are guided by them. Are these things benevolent? Are they demonic? Could DMT be a door into another dimension? Is it what we need in order to break out of the “simulation?”
I cannot help but feel that DMT leaves people with more questions than answers.
The universe is so vast, and it seems everything is so aligned and perfect. This is the reason why I do believe there is a higher power, a creator, or a programmer who is somewhere out there, pulling the strings in what we call reality. There has to be a reason for why we have some of the things we have in this world available to us. Is it a coincidence that when we consume these sacred plants or “chemicals” or whatever you want to refer to them as, that we see what we see? Do they truly serve a higher purpose?

“Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.” ― Terence McKenna
