Dennis McKenna returns to the show to talk with Jason Abbott and Doug Noble about his role in his brother Terence's book True Hallucinations. We also recap his own account of the experiences at La Chorrera in Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss. It was great to discuss a wide range of topics from the history of the intellectual dyad that are the McKenna brothers, shamanic induction, and integration of the psychedelic experience.

IGC 49 - Paul Levy

Jason Abbott welcomes author Paul Levy to the show. We discuss one of his recent books, Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil. Wetiko is an illusive virus of the mind that is hard to study as it seems to be non-local, non-dual, and ineffable at its core. The modern equivalent could be considered Malignant Egophrenia. We also chat about the mental health system, the war on consciousness, and a bit on shamanism.
