How to Change Your Mind

What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence by Michael Pollan

This book explains the mind better than most. The spiritual event can be created with manipulating the brain with chemicals. Each individual has a perception of reality and forms shortcuts to evaluate experiences so the body can survive and comprehend the information the senses are providing. Drugs fog the learned shortcuts and open the mind to more imagination that seems so real.

We have much to learn about the brain and its functions. Let the scientists do the testing and leave the Tim Leary’s to manipulating politics.
