We have had the "research finding,” that the psilocybin experience reveals authoritarianism to be an outmoded form of human interrelatedness and our fundamental connectedness to Mother Nature, long understood, going back to the early sixties with the Leary et al studies, and made more generally available to the public by the McKenna brothers in 1976 with the release of their little manual on kitchen cultivation of the Psilocybe cubsnsis mushroom. We refer to these aforementioned initiatory insights facilitated by initial contact with the Psilocybe mushroom as the “beginner stage.” All of the current research, of necessity, due to the long hiatus caused by governmental oppression, is stuck at this “beginner” level. There remains the “intermediate” and “advanced” stages, few of which touch upon due to the rarity of the gratuitous grace of having both the necessary constitution and the requisite “blessing” bestowed upon them by persistent, committed work with the spirit in the mushroom. The government funded researchers are just now acknowledging what we all already know from the early stages of the research started in 1960 during the Harvard Psilocybin Research Project. Although I applaud their efforts in making these small inroads into the authoritarian miasma of governmental regulations, there is much for them to catch up with, including that the mushroom is an intelligent plant entity that has a teaching agenda that can draw you so deep into the rabbit hole that you transcend being completely identified with the embodied form traversing this particular reality circuit and open to the antipodes of the human consciousness; what lies above and below, within and without. There are many other dimensions of Reality that remain a challenge to communicate about by words alone, but require initiatory experience and direct contact to be fully apprehended. Government funded researchers, by definition deeply embedded in authoritarianism, are currently limited in their ability to apprehend these domains of experience, or even conceive of their possibility, due to a priori assumptions about reality that are part the authoritarian structure and the limits it places upon their thought process. The rare folks with whom I have had the opportunity to share these deeper aspects of the initiatory process have since passed on to dwell in these domains, save one close younger friend who has had the temerity to plumb the depths. Our work continues and one of these days, when time permits, more will be said about it. Meanwhile, I encourage those so inclinced to persist in plunging the depths of the Psilocybe mushroom to see directly for themselves the untapped potential of this astounding set of plant species.
