From the community editorial board: psilocybin mushrooms

Every single one of us, whether we identify as progressive or conservative or somewhere in between, has strong opinions about the right way to live, how to treat others, and how others should act.

This is not necessarily problematic; human societies have developed and enforced their own moral codes since the earliest days of civilization. However, in today’s polarized, angry, and defensive times, the impulse to retreat into “friendly” circles of like-minded folks has had the impact of further fractioning what feels like a tenuous existence… Enter psilocybin mushrooms. These psychedelic fungi, when taken in small doses, can induce calm and a greater sense of acceptance – at least that’s my personal experience. (Taken in greater doses, they can induce hallucinations, which can also lead to mind-opening realizations, but that’s a different tangent). The clarity and empathy afforded by microdoses of psilocybin mushrooms might break open one’s rigid views. To be clear, this “breaking open” may not change one’s mind, but it could lead to more empathy and curiosity, forging a path toward understanding instead of reviling. These effects aren’t relegated to interpersonal interactions. Many of us, myself included wrestle with our own demons and internal struggles that can escalate to emotional battles that cause real suffering and exhaustion. Imagine having… access to a substance that could help stop the spiraling, the negative thoughts, the self-recrimination… If individuals can find peace within themselves, they are more apt to spread peace among their neighbors.
