How [free, abundant access to naturally-occuring psilocybe mushrooms] can save the environment

The result is a scientific worldview that encourages looking at nature not objectively, not from the clean, well-lighted bench in the laboratory, but subjectively… there’s been mycological experts going back tens of thousands of years. 

This evolving eco-consciousness is… a clear and profound notion of a transaction, signed by nature and humanity, an exchange between the needs of mushrooms and the needs of the planet… It just pains me that people have no appreciation for the importance of [neurodiversity and] biodiversity… These are Einstein molecules. How many Einsteins are we losing every day? And how many Einsteins would we not be losing everyday if psilocybin mushrooms and psychoactive substances were incorporated into part of our mental health wellbeing [co-habitating inside our homes alongside our families]? I could make the argument that those people don’t appear very evolutionary intelligent to me. But that’s our task and duty. We have to bring everybody up the learning curve together, and we can’t marginalize people who don’t share our belief systems. They may not have been exposed to the lessons of nature in the same way that I have or that other people have.
