Psychedelics & Consciousness (Short Documentary)

A short documentary about psychedelics and their beneficial potential, featuring Jason Silva, Terence McKenna, Graham Hancock and Joe Rogan. Created by Omega Point


“Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behaviour and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.” ―Terence McKenna

Psychedelics: An Illegal Experience


“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the Weather.” ―Bill Hicks


“When the state sends us to prison for essentially exploring our own consciousness, this is a grotesque abuse of human rights. It's a fundamental wrong. If I as an adult am not sovereign over my own consciousness, then I am absolutely not sovereign over anything. I can't claim any kind of freedom at all. And what has happened over the last forty or fifty years under the disguise of the war on drugs, is that we have been persuaded to hand over the keys of our consciousness to the state. The most precious, the most intimate, the most sapien part of ourselves, the state now has the keys. And furthermore, they’ve persuaded us that that’s in our interests. This is a very dangerous situation.” ―Graham Hancock
