I'm so sorry Oyster Farmer. That was total sarcasm. I am familiar with McKenna and what calls heroic. Just myself and the friends around me will take 5 gram for an event or concert where we need to maintain some level of control in the situation. 7-14 grams is usually what I take for a heroic feel like a new person the next day ride. But that's prolly why
Nobody hardly trips with me anymore. I am hardheaded
Mushrooms can make you lonely for sure. I've lost a lot more friends than I've made . Of course it turns out they were all assholes so nothing lost.
I think the real issue is so many people today are completely fear based. Mushrooms force you to confront your fear. I've known so many people that I've literally given mushrooms to just because I felt they needed it and their response was to never talk to me again. They'd rather live in their fear based but known reality.
