Leto! as in Jared?? lol jk. Welcome Bro! And much love to the magic mushroom! After all, did you not know that JESUS is just code for a magic mushroom?
Tom's stance on Psychedelics are rather confusing I must say. Someone else can find it on here, but he is talking to my boy Cole Randall, and he says that Psychedelics CAN have a positive effect on people, but there downside is way higher than the upside. He said that if you have done 95% of the work, drugs can take you that last 5% to where you have an "Aha!" moment, but they will not take you all the way. Also that in the moment of being high on them, it hits you very hard spiritually, and it may be very profound, but from the view of YOUR ENTIRE LIFE, you can never know what the downside was, i.e., what success in NPMR you could have had if you did the harder job of doing it sober.
I completely lol @ those who are QUICK TO denounce psychedelics (usually because they haven't tried them), yet they eat SWEETENER, drink CAFFEINE, and get drunk on alcohol. Drugs are drugs. They have an affect and cloud your conscious awareness. TC does not consume any sweetener or alcohol or caffeine, yet those on here who denounce psychedelics PROBABLY use at least one of those drugs! Hypocrites.
Mr. Campbell, I must say, has a much softer approach to drug taking here on this forum as well as other videos, then he does in his trilogy. When I reread how hardcore anti psychedelic he is in his third book, I was quite taken aback I gotta say! He calls those of us that have taken drugs "clowns", and I can't remember what else, but compared to his normally mild tone, it is severely heavy handed in the book... So either he has softened his approach, or changed his opinion, I don't know which.
At one point somewhere on this forum, he compares psychedelics simply to binaural beats! They are both simply training wheels that eventually need to come off. So to compare drugs to binaural beats on here, vs. how low-key mean he sounds to us druggies in his book, is a rather startling difference. He is all over the place. But I resented him when he called me a clown...
Oh well. We shouldn't take this current PMR packet too seriously anyhow. Learn what ya can, then flip the page.
I have taken acid, mushrooms, and 2ci. That 2ci sh** FRIED my brain. Permanently I think. Ah well. I have always been crazy anyway... Now I just don't apologize for it lol.
So of course there are dangers. But would I recommend a responsible amount of magic mushrooms to someone over a whole Pizza Hut pizza? youre g-dang right I would. Much healthier! Or how about some liquid cannabis versus a "bottle of jack"? There is no comparison. Alcohol is easily the most destructive drug, you may stop your internal dialogue (Bill Hicks)
