In this episode Daniel talks to Jahan Khamsehzadeh, a scholar of psychedelic studies whose latest book The Psilocybin Connection argues that ingestion of magic mushrooms may help people to not only overcome trauma and addiction but can very well save the world. Mushrooms allow us to reach higher levels of consciousness that allow someone to see beyond the false structures created by ideologies and popular culture. Dr. Khamsehzadeh tells about his first experience ingesting mushrooms at a Tool concert, when he was eighteen. He tells how a handful of mushrooms first made him fear that he was going to die, but ultimately led him to a journey that would transform his life and give him direction. He has studied physics, neuroscience, and consciousness.
