NEO.LIFE: The Psychedelic Divide

Summary: Consider the differences between the “chemical view” and “interconnected view” of the future of psychedelics in this NEO.LIFE article.

“The proponents of each future-of-psychedelics worldview don’t dismiss the other side’s position, they just see it as irrelevant to the predominant trend in society,” explains author Marianne Apostolides. The vision of MAPS Founder and Executive Director Rick Doblin, Ph.D., “encompasses both hemispheres of the globe—not just the brain—maintaining that psychedelics manifest an understanding of the interconnected nature of environments, people, and societies. For him, psychedelics derive their power from the physical experience of the body in the world.”
