There are currently no medications that have proven effective in dealing with the massive amounts of addictions, depression and suicidal ideation. Psychedelics are showing extraordinary results in clinical trials, and are on the fast track to becoming one of the most powerful transformative tools of our time.
In a world where people feel so deeply disconnected, the use of medications to further detach them may work to dampen the emotions that are experienced but often provides little relief and no profound insights into the internal experience of life. What science has shown is that psilocybin works to calm the region of the brain called the Default Mode Network and stimulates the connections between regions in the brain that normally may not be connecting as well.
The film touches on the ground-breaking work being done at Johns Hopkins, UCLA, NYU and other places and can be a portal to a meaningful and important conversation and exploration into the potential mushrooms offer.
