A new mantra

Today I figured out the core reason why there is often a communication barrier in a vast amount of social situations. I realized that this is because people subconsciously and consciously block out information and stimuli from people and the environment in order to keep their identity and sense of self intact; To keep the story that they believe alive. You could also call this their shield. Their ego. This seems to be a major ingredient that divides communities and creates conflict. Believing in a collection of stories with little motivation to search for a logical answer leads to complacency and the attachment of an image that you perceive as yourself. There is no self. You are an ever changing entity. I believe this is the main reason why the world is not anywhere near as connected as it can be.

Society and culture has conditioned us to value empty concepts above learning.

Here is my mantra:

Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything
Value learning above everything

Each action and the tone in which it is executed creates waves that encourage a certain type of behaviour. It feeds into and alters the ocean that is the global consciousness.

Do your actions encourage and iterate a present mindset or one denoted to the past and/or future?

You can learn a lot about an environment and the people in it by how your resonance and coping strategies fluctuate depending on where you are and who you are around. The stories that you believe associated with your surroundings and yourself determine your vibrational state. Either way, these mechanisms influence how open you may be to learning new things.

Whilst under the effects of hallucinogens, it is much easier to notice the reality you are creating and encouraging. Every action and the style in which you do it creates intricate iterations and gentle folds into your reality. This creates the direction in which you build momentum. I often find that people who dance or have some kind of abstract creative outlet come across much more flexible and open to new ideas. I also see this in commercials and music videos - It's so enticing. In some ways, the kaleidoscope of their mind is bursting.

Hallucinogens have influenced many scientific discoveries and breakthroughs. And lots of technology.

Much of the technologies and creations that you have the delight of experiencing today come from the worlds creative headquarters: Silicon Valley, California. According to Tim Ferris, every billionaire he knows, almost without exception, uses hallucinogens on a regular basis; this is to have an edge over their competition. Microdosing (as well as larger dosing) has been utilized for decades there, but it is only recently that it has risen again to be known more as a creative thinking tool rather than simply a recreational drug. Notably, Steve Jobs (co founder of Apple) described LSD as being one of the most important things in his life. This may explain the "Zen" style of technology that he created, thus ushering in enormous ripples of innovation within the world.

Hallucinogens are such an ineffably powerful tool due to many reasons, but one of the most important lies within the feature of disrupting the default mode network. In our lives, it is very easy to get caught up in past and future thinking, and if this habit is kept up for a prolonged period of time it can almost feel like we are sinking into quick sand. With the ability to dissolve attachments by infusing meditation with this tool, combined with the simple act of relaxing and letting go, we tap into the core fabric of the universe and become super intelligent with boundless pattern recognition and precise emotional acuity.

This also incurs a ripple effect throughout your feedback loop within your brain as the iterations you made whilst under the effect of the hallucinogen carries on, as you retain the knowledge you acquired while in that state. It seems hard to ignore the perspective witnessed while under these effects and further motivates the user to seek global balance if exposed to sufficient insights.

Actual Scientific research on the safety and validity of hallucinogenic substances is limited, largely due to it being illegal. One good aspect to know is that psilocybin is 100x less neurotoxic than coffee. Additionally, from an anecdotal point of view, it is perceived with high positive regard, and from my experience I can say that it seems highly safe if the set and setting is carefully considered. I would recommend to be in Nature with minimal disturbances. Nature & Hallucinogens promote the deactivation of your ego and identity, and stimulates creativity. Combining this with mediation, logical insights and reflection results in the recipe for potentially massive ripples of positive change.

It is possible to fall off track though. I've also had experiences on hallucinogens where I have given up on learning. On exotic occasions I have gravitated towards reading about conspiracy theories of Donald Trump owning a time machine, and then proceeded to experience what seemed like me shooting up in a rocket to space. With the subtle abrasive tones of grains of sand and tiny rocks hitting my vehicle, sounding and feeling so realistic that you would think it's real. That rabbit hole came to an abrupt ending though.

Admittedly, I initially used hallucinogens as a recreational drug when I was in love. Because I had so many layers and felt secure around my friend, my identity stayed intact and I barely scraped the surface. Moreover, it was not until I experienced "identity/ego death" on a cold winters night, in a place where I felt a little bit unsafe, that I began to notice the infinite possibilities of life and humanity as a whole.
