Psychedelics and the internet: a look into technology’s role in human evolution

Why do you think there exists such capitalization on creating backlash off the emotions of people who can’t deal with different opinions than their own? Identity politics seeds doubt, ironically, through the internet. It isn’t the technology itself that is negative, though – it’s the traps that can be planted within it.

When we look beyond these traps, we see that the Internet ideally helps us to kindle our compassion; that is, if we can learn to ‘forgive’ others for being different from ourselves. Psychedelics increase our compassion as well, by allowing us to forgive ourselves for the ways in which we’ve responded and reacted to our past traumas… every day, it becomes easier to hide behind our digital personas. Manipulators have been given a grand-scale medium to share their propaganda amongst much of the connected population – and many fall for it. Yet, we’re also more connected with one another than we have ever been before, because the common person is now aware of the colorful spectra of human experience – in belief and lifestyle; in culture and opinion; in the variety of anecdotal stories shared by individuals.
