When a caterpillar becomes over-consumptive, “imaginal cells” cause all the other cells to undifferentiate toward the formation of a completely new being. Our culture is in an over-consumptive state. And amazingly, imaginal cells are forming.
The introduction of the written word into social
discourse initiated a fundamental change in the way human beings understood their reality. Alphabetic writing rewired our brains into
left-dominant meme machines, instituting a period of intensive
philosophical and cultural progress. But it would also, ultimately,
initiate our long decent into self-destruction.
An Interdimensional Traveler must have a moral purpose, and must be aware of all the shrinking rays
that press upon us. The price of freedom for the Traveler is
eternal vigilance about the sticky enchantments that would like to bind us to
the Babylon Matrix and turn us into hordes of automatons
and hungry ghosts.
After nearly four decades, the aboveground study of psychedelics is opening up again. At next year's World Psychedelic Forum in Basel, Switzerland, a new crop of “Rising Researchers” will present their work, spanning a wide range of disclipines. Founded by Tom Roberts, this program will bring these diverse, international researchers together – to share their findings, to offer mutual support, and to meet the psychedelic pioneers who paved the way.
Powerful entheogenic substances were clearly utilized by the shamans and skywatchers working in the ancient Mayan city of Izapa. The profound integration of celestial, psychological, ritual, and mythopoeic elements found at Izapa bespeaks the psychedelic influence. Could the use of hallucinogens explain how the ancient skywatchers became aware of the Galactic Center? And what mysteries does the Galactic Center contain?
The biospheric dreambody is a higher-dimensional aspect of ourselves that, just like a dream, is nonlocal and multi-channeled, as it is not
constrained by the apparent physical laws of the third-dimensional universe. It’s a deeper part of ourselves that expresses itself synchronistically both within ourselves and simultaneously in the outside world, through both our personal process and our collective body politic. Just like a dream, something important is being revealed to us in the process of its unfoldment, something that could have worldwide consequences for our planet’s current ecological crisis.
