the new study used nuclear magnetic resonance (#NMR) spectroscopy to locate several additional compounds in 4 different species of #psilocybin shrooms. They found #harmine, #harmane, and #harmaline, beta-carbolines alkaloids which are present in #ayahuasca.
"#Psychedelics can be considered agents of #connection. At the level of the neuron, they increase #synaptic and neurite #connections. At the level of the brain, they increase global connectivity between different brain regions. They facilitate increased connection of the self, and self with others, and they can enhance our connection to nature and the world at large. Their ability to enhance #connectedness may be linked to our sense of subjective #self-identity. "
"In effect, #women and #GNC+ people are at risk of #gendered #violence whether or not we use drugs, while the stigma leveled at people who use #drugs means that we are often turned away from/further harmed in supposed ‘places of safety’ when we do use drugs."

"#Technology is neither a devil nor an angel. But neither is it simply a #tool, a neutral extension of some rock-solid human nature. Tech is a #trickster, and it has been since the first culture hero taught the human tribe how to spin wool before he pulled it over our eyes. The trickster shows how #intelligence fares in an unpredictable and chaotic world; he beckons us through the open doors of #innovation and traps us in the prison of #unintendedconsequences."

#ClaudioNaranjo: trata-se de um #xamanismo não tradicional, e não o #tantra asiático. Para #Naranjo, o resultado de vinte e sete anos de meditação, psicoterapia e estados alterados não podem ser enquadrados em nenhum modelo #hindu. E como poderiam ser? A “serpente interior” da #Kundalini #Yoga é simplesmente uma construção do sul da Ásia para ilustrar uma #neurobiologia universal; “não é outra senão a nossa mente cerebral mais arcaica (#reptiliana)”.

"It’s not just a fun ride, it’s an exhausting experience, too. It takes a bit of time to recover.” Two months later, not only am I back to my old self, but I think I might be more myself than ever."
"A key congressional committee plans to hold a historic vote on a bill to end the federal prohibition of marijuana next week, two sources with knowledge of the soon-to-be-announced action said."
"Widespread legalization has been thwarted. Bank financing has dried up. Deep-pocketed institutional investors remain on the sidelines and old-fashioned black-market dealers still provide stiff competition."
"posibilidades de regulación del #cannabis van desde los modelos basados en seguridad, salud pública y derechos humanos, como el de Uruguay, a aquellos basados más en el negocio, como en Estados Unidos. En este caso, está dominado por la industria."
“#Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a 3rd-story window.. but because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behaviour and information processing."
